When I still lived in Ottawa and went to physio for my right knee, they had me use a foam roller on my IT bands as one of the activities. It hurt a lot, but I did it.

So this is looking to be a great & stressful month! I'm a little worried I'm overloading my goals for the month, but sometimes I feel like that's how I get the most done.
- Continue flossing (5x/wk), 8C water
- Go for 15-20min ... Read more
I've been busy (and distracted) with some work for my part-time job and with thesis-related things. I submitted the last report for my previous contract, prepped stuff with my current contract and sent my final draft off to my supervisor who is ... Read more
Still in a Slump
As the title says, I'm still in a slump; I think it's emotional this time though. I had planned to get organized and back on track yesterday, but after a 4h strategy session with an environmental campaign I'm involved with, my knee was super bot... Read more
January Mid-month Check In
So it's been a little over a week since my last post...in that time I did try to get out for short walks and did one 15min "Walk Away the Pounds" workout, but that's basically been it because I'm still feeling things are "off" with my knee. Last... Read more
So Monday I went to a clinic just to have a doctor check out my knee. It was feeling 95% better, but I wanted to know if there was anything I should or shouldn't be doing. I got the feeling he ignored the part where I told him about injuring it ... Read more
My knee was feeling a bit off last night before I went to do my workout, but I didn't think *too* much of it. I decided I'd try doing the chair cardio video to take pressure off of it, although once I did the video I decided tha... Read more
January 2015 Goals
I went through the different goals that I had written about in the previous entry and tried to look at whether there were things I could work on to accomplish multiple goals; sometimes I could, sometimes I couldn't. I decided to definitely go wi... Read more
2014 Reflections, 2015 Focus
Looking back on 2014, it was a year full of changes for me, most of which I've previously blogged about. It was also a year of under-performing, as far as I'm concerned. I don't feel like I have been motivated to do much with my life this year a... Read more
It's the Weekend!
Flossing - Just got back on track tonight. It took longer than it should have, but honestly, our bathroom's a wreck bc we were supposed to basically get a brand-new bathroom today (now it's supposed to be Monday or Tuesday) & I... Read more
Nov. 6 Check-In
I'm feeling super tired this morning and have been having a super slow and lazy start to the day. It might be because I forgot to drink a lot of water last night after donating blood. :P I also woke up slightly disappointed in myself for breakin... Read more
No Fast Food November!
Even though some of the goals in my previous post were coming along (found some work, getting out for walks more often, going outside more, getting up earlier), I saw the scale moving in the wrong direction. I thought about my activities and rea... Read more
I'm trying to make small healthy changes right now because I don't feel like I can really handle major stuff. Even though I'm at home and don't have any real challenges, it still feels like working out is this huge thing to tackle. I actually fi... Read more
I feel like my interest in becoming healthier/fitter seems to wax and wane, so I'm often doing what feels like a reboot on Sparkpeople.
I've gone through a ton of ups and downs since my last blog in August 2013.
- G-Man & I split up (ami... Read more

It's been a week since G-Man moved back to NL now, so I'm starting to get closer to a new normal, though that will all change when I start work a week from Monday (weee!).
I finally caved & picked up some new groceries yesterday; I've been ... Read more
