Try a Tri - DONE
I completed my first Try a Tri (100m swim, 11km bike and 2km run) this week-end. Nothing extraordinary, my time was poor, but I did it and I am now motivated to keep training - which I had not done much beforehand given the circumstances. I ha... Read more
Perpetual failings or perpetual beginnings
Today, I made three healthy salads. I was exhausted this morning because I haven't been sleeping well lately. Since I was up, I went for a 30min walk quite early, and it was lovely. I didn't push myself, just enjoyed the walk.
I had star... Read more
I have fallen off the P90X bandwagon - got sick and now I just can't seem to get back on.
I have my try-a-tri in 3 weeks, so I need to focus on swimming, biking and running now. My plan: aquafitness tonight, walk/run tomorrow morning, bi... Read more
P90X 3rd week DONE!
I did Kempo X, which I really like, with all the punching and kicking.
That brings me to the end of my 3rd week. I started 62 days ago, so that's 21 days in 62 days! Hit one out of 3 days. Last 2 weeks were a wash with March Break and a flu ... Read more
3rd week of P90X
I started mid-January, and slowly making my way to the 90 days program, with lots of lost days in between. This workout is an absolute killer for me. I can't, just can't get through it. Today I did the shoulders and arms, and probably skipped... Read more

Then, there are times where being a big family means that it take... Read more

P90Xing Day 9 after 19 days
Going at my own pace is much better than not moving. I've been doing the P90X videos with little ones around, making sure I wouldn't trip over them... So I have done 9 days so far in 19 days. I just need to keep the motivation... I always find... Read more
Kenpo X or a lot of punching!
I started back my P90X program, but decided this time around that I would print a table with all the 90 days programs, then scratch it off as I get it done. Marvellous! This way, if I skip a day because of the XYZ that constantly seem to get in... Read more
Well, I've gone back to being above 150! But I sure enjoyed the Holiday baking...... Read more
It's so funny. I dropped 3lbs all at once - like in one day! And now I'm staying there. I'm glad, it's not 5lbs, but I'm staying there for the 2nd week in a row. I'm quite satisfied. Now I need a strategy to stay there and not gain it back d... Read more

Two weeks, 3lbs down?
I am actually surprised because I was tracking the first week and being mindful of what I ate, then nothing. And then last week I was just really busy and had a couple of Xmas parties where I did indulge - reasonably, but still - and then I los... Read more
One week, no change
I think I have to tweak the way I eat and figure out which foods are more satisfying with fewer calories...... Read more
