February Goals

Monday, February 01, 2010      6 comments

A new month is upon us. Again. And yet again I need to confront the fact that the previous month came and went without any weight loss. It's difficult to acknowledge this. I worked out 5-6 days a week. I ate okay, but not great. And the scale di... Read more

Insanity Fit Test #3

Thursday, January 07, 2010      3 comments

It's taken me a long time to get to this halfway point in the Insanity program. First because I was mainly running and using the workouts as a complement a few times a week, but then because I had injuries and had to wait for the pain to subsid... Read more

Wow. That's all I really know to say right now. WOW. It's a new month, a new year and I have no idea how it slipped by me. The new year is almost a week old. In the past week I've had the opportunity to reflect on a few things. 1. I ... Read more

Feeling down. Or something.

I'm not a person who likes surprises. I like plans, I like making lists and checking them off as I go. I like a certain amount of predictability. When things aren't going according to plan I am likely to feel stress, anxiety and sleeplessn... Read more

December Goals

Wednesday, December 09, 2009      3 comments

I know this is very late, but with the move and all, I haven't had time to think much about this. November was a bad month for me. I didn't reach any of my goals, except for one - to do 2 Insanity workouts a week. The whole family fel... Read more

No longer an expatriate

Tuesday, December 08, 2009      6 comments

Life has sure changed in the last week. Our two year stay in Italy came to an end and we moved back to Sweden. Of course we chose the darkest, dreariest time to do this, because just the move in itself (with two toddlers in tow) wasn't challengi... Read more

Arrivederci Italia!

Wow, what a ride it's been! Two years in one of the most beautiful places I've ever been in. And tomorrow this adventure is coming to an end. It's been awesome, awful, interesting, annoying, mind-blowing, mind-numbing. It is over too... Read more

I'm putting this here for my own reference. This is a calculation of my Total Daily Energy Expenditure. Since I don't know my Lean Body Mass, I will use the Harris-Benedict formula to calculate my BMR. Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 X wt in... Read more

November goals

Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

I like this concept of outlining goals for the next month. I have also realized that the more concrete, detailed and realistic the goals, the better I feel about them and the harder I fight to achieve them. I have read some blogs where the goals... Read more

October in the rear-view mirror

Sunday, November 01, 2009      4 comments

October is over and a new month has begun. I outlined some goals for the month that I wanted to reach and goodness knows I'e worked hard to do that. I haven't been entirely successful, though. I ran 120 kilometres during the month. One of ... Read more

Mid-month assessment

Friday, October 16, 2009      5 comments

I set some goals for myself at the beginning of the month. They were: to lose 3 kilos, to run up a hill that I had only been able to walk up and to run 10K under 60 minutes. So how am I doing now that half the month has gone by? I hav... Read more

Conquering the world one hill at a time

Tuesday, October 06, 2009      6 comments

I'm a very competitive person. I regard it as a strength and as a weakness. My competitiveness makes me give that extra effort in almost everything I do, once I've committed to it. But. The downside is that it can get ugly. My friend... Read more

Great start - my first plateau

Monday, October 05, 2009      8 comments

It must be karma; as soon as I outlined my October goals, and enthusiastically went about my exercise and diet regime, that's when I hit my first plateau. A one kilo weight gain in tis last week and I can't help but groan. And by that I obviousl... Read more

October goals

Thursday, October 01, 2009      7 comments

One of the Spark Teams I belong to has a thread about setting goals for October and I have been thinking about this for a couple of days. There are so many things I would like to see happen this month, many of them are personal, some relate to t... Read more
