Blogging to avoid another bite
I am having a bit of a difficult go it at lately. So many factors working against me have made me very unsatisfied with my progress. I could call it a plateau, but that would not be fair to the people that actually try hard and plateau. While I ... Read more
Increased training + late night hours =nothing good number-wise.
We all get frustrated and we all have the same problem, so I am sure I am not alone when I have noticed that working late makes my weight go up. Correction- eating while working late makes my weight go up.
For 3 weeks now I have been runnin... Read more
The challenges of returning to work and staying fit
After 2+ years of maternity leave, I have returned to work. I unfortunately did not reach my goal weight by the time I went back to work after my 3rd baby as I had after 1 and 2, but I am still hoping to get there. If I thought running with a s... Read more
Weight up, pants down?
I think I am experiencing one of those weird weight loss conundrums of shrinking, but the scale says otherwise. My weight has been climbing a bit recently, but the other day my pants fell off. This is a pair of pants that usually are loose, but ... Read more
Pain, no pain and happiness
Today started out like any other day. I talked myself into running and had decided on a new route- run 5km in a new direction and back. I had had some lingering joint pain recently that I attributed to my over worn running shoes, but I did not t... Read more
High Interval training
So I have read about HIT and its benefits (online at GetFitGuy.com, probably somewhere on SparkPeople.com too), but was not really motivated to try until I got my new running gizmo, the Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS watch and have literally spent ab... Read more
Even with my weight gain this week, I am so excited by a new toy I got in the mail yesterday:
While there is no magic pill for weight loss, I am excited about anything that, ... Read more
Ok, leading this blog with a big picture of a Halloween cake may not indicate success, but this is what I had to resist to survive through Halloween. :) I love baking and I ma... Read more
So after my disappointment on Saturday that I had to cancel running a 1/2 marathon, I staged my own this morning. Delivered the kids to kindergarten and drove out a 21+km route to run. Returned home, fuelled up with my standard oatmeal and coffe... Read more
So my childcare fell through today and I am not able to run my planned 1/2 marathon. :( Oh well. That was the last one I could run locally without travelling. Perhaps I will look for one not too far away that I could still squeeze in this year,... Read more
Hard to keep me down
With a race tomorrow, I am taking it easy on the running front today. I feel restless, though... as if I am cheating on my exercise regimen. Oh well. I hope to clean my kitchen finally and weed my garden for fall. A bit of physical activity. I a... Read more
Two days seems like a lifetime
So I have completed two full days of model behaviour. Woohoo!! Somehow getting back in the swing of things is always harder at the beginning. Although I may have eaten a bushel of apples today, I stayed within my limits and even was able to hav... Read more
Start "reingition"... yet again
I don't know what excuse I can fall back on this time, but since the scale put me a full 2kg above last week's already dismal number I hope I can get back on track. It just goes to show that a relatively active person can easily gain weight when... Read more
A proud 2:07.14
I can't figure out how to upload pictures to my gallery right now, so I thought I would just put my picture of me finishing the last 1/2 marathon I ran on the 21st of May here... Read more

A bit more "buff"
Just finished all my workouts to complete the Spring swimsuit challenge- wooohoo! Two days late, but still done. I don't think I lost much weight, but my measurements are probably better and I feel a bit more "buff!" :) I am so happy this intro... Read more
