I thought I'd let all Alberta members know about this 5K run in Rosedale Alberta.
www.burstofcolorrun.com is the site I got the information from.
Join me this July for the 3rd Annual Burst of Color Run on Saturday July 26, 2014 at 10am at Centennial Park in Rosemary, Alberta just east of Drumheller.
Early-bird Registration opens April 1. April 1 to May 31 ...
If you are interested in attending I would love to hear from you.


To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

another coolish day it looks like. Where are the Albertans? So excited to see the summer (?) that they have abandoned the discussions? I hope at least you are all sparking with the program and pursuing your goals! Happy Friday!

Just had to post a comment on how lucky we are here in Alberta that it's the 15th of October tomorrow and the weather is awesome!! Makes it much easier to get outside and do something rather than hiding inside from awful winter weather!

What would I do if I knew I could not fail...

I do enjoy these sunny days we have had, now hate to say it, but would be nice to see just one day above 30.. just one day to think about in January, when I am froze at work, to remember that day in the summer where it was so hot I could hardly breathe..

good idea, I have been eating some junk, but have tried to temper it a bit, I make sure if I am hungry, I eat a real meal, then if I want a treat, I can make sure its just that a treat, not a blow out

OUCH! I really went off the rails yesterday; made some butterscotch fudge for gifting and just HAD to try some! Tried too much!!!!!
I made sugar nuts too, but I use Splenda instead of sugar so they're not as fattening as the original recipe.
Anyway, I froze the fudge and stuck it way in the back of the freezer; out of sight out of mind, hopefully.
I'm back on track today.

Because the weather is gloomy here, my husband wants to go to the city tonight to do some shopping, which means another fast food restaurant meal. I'm going to stick to my guns and insist on Subway. Wish me luck!

I just had a quick glimpse at the weather network and that is exactly what it is saying - rain until Sunday. Oh well, it doesn't really bother me, I have a lot of housework that needs doing this week end so I don't have the nice weather to use as an excuse.

It is so gloomy today. I really dislike the rain but it doesn't really affect me either(except the frizzy hair). It guess it is supposed to rain until Sunday! I hope not!

It's a rainy, dull day in GP today. I'm so glad that I go to Curves for my workouts, the weather can't be a factor for me.

Hi everyone: I came back from Arizona last winter and was in such a slump I just kept on back sliding till I gained 32 lbs this summer and have become a couch potato. Tonight my little SP voice told me it was time to straighten up, pull up my socks and get back to a healthy routine starting with my diet and exercise again. So I'm back once more vowing to succeed this time with a little help from my friends here as SP.

I'm finally done the kitchen counters. They are installed, my pots/bowls and cleaners are back in the lower cupboards and I think the counters look beautiful. I'm glad one doesn't do this every day however. A lot of work, taking out the old ones, plumbing. We couldn't get the pipes to connect, leaks, so called a plumber. Told my husband he was in the wrong profession. Wowser! $200. to be told that the metric parts don't go with our older parts. Anyway, no leaks and all is great. I can finally start cooking again and getting back on track with SP. Missed you folks!

Happy Canada Day!

Today will be a great day, I have my kitchen fully unpacked now (and it's only 9:30 am). Soon I will tackle what's left of the bathroom and office. By noon I should be heading out for Canada Day celebrations at Bower Ponds in Red Deer, AB.

Hope you all have a chance to get out and enjoy this day!

Hello all, I've been exercising and tracking on paper, but haven't been to SP much lately.

I don't mind walking with my husband, but it's been too darn cold or icy to walk outside most days.

Today I'm off to the home gym ... in about 5 minutes. :)

that's why I have a dog, hubby will not come (lucky stiff has that magic metabolism.. eats and doesn't work out and has weighed the same since we got married 24 years late, good thing is this has been passed down to our sons.. his whole family has the skinny gene..)
so I grab max and we go... he is also a great motivator..

I think that's a wonderful strategy, Roadtofreedom.

I wish I could get my husband to come walking with me. I find it's easier to exercise WITH someone and it makes the time go by without realizing it.

Next goal: Break the 200 lb mark.

I think a good strategy is to set a goal of at least 10 minutes of exercise per day, no excuses. Once a person gets past the first 10 then they often keep going. Some days even 30 minutes sounds too overwhelming or daunting.

I started slow with my exercise, I used to go all out doing all kinds of exercise, then burn out, didn't want to do that this time
so I got a pedometer, and did a week of just tracking my daily steps, sure didn't get many that first week
so I started, with a 10 minute walk out my door (helped that it was spring time), 5 minutes out the door, turn around a come home, no excuse was valid, its only 10 minutes and did that every single day for a week, the following week I added in 5 more minutes in the out direction and 5 minutes more back home, for a total of 20 minutes, again no excuse was valid, the following week, 5 more minutes each direction, for now 30 minutes, at the end of 6 weeks I was up to an hour, and I kept at it, no excuse was valid, it was my time, I was worth the time and effort.
It has become such a habit, I rarely go a day without exercise, it is my time, think about life and I don't feel "right" if I don't move

Cat, you really seem to be consitent with your exercise. That's where I fell down in the past couple of years. I have not been consistent. Keeping a nutrition journal and an exercise journal sure does help me and I'm determined to stick with it until (at least) I become consistent with positive habits.

It sure is tough to get it off. When I was younger, it was easy ... but now that I'm post menopausal ... it's not so easy anymore.

Right now my muscles feel sore (the good kind of sore) so I think I'm doing something right.

I gained 8 lbs camping this summer (you know, beer and s'mores), and could not take it off. I was conscious of everything I ate, and started going to Curves (although not regularly). I was still not able to budge a pound, then gained another 3 over Christmas. ARGGH. Anyway, I have gotten rid of my Christmas gain, but I know I am going to have to work my butt off for the rest of it.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

I actually went through a really hard time at the end of 2008, and through stress and emotional eating and no desire to exercise, I gained 21 lbs in the last 3 months of the year. I started 2009 at 215.2 lbs.

I didn't make any progress with losing any weight at all in 2008.

This year I'm setting sights on getting stronger and fitter.

How did the year end for all?

Back on track so far.
