85 days left in my BodyByVi 90 day challenge. So far I'm happy. I think the last couple of days I haven't been eating enough during the day, so I'll need to adjust the number of snacks I bring to work. I don't know if it's psychological o... Read more

It was a pretty good week overall. I did well with meal planning and pretty well with exercise. Even lost a couple of pounds for the first time in a really long time. It was a ton of work, planning out the meals like I did. I'm going to ... Read more

Yesterday was a challenge again. Did a really hard lower body workout in the morning with my trainer. Was hungry all day, in spite of having brought lots of food. Ended up going a little over my calorie limit for the day, and once again I did... Read more
90 Day Challenge - Day 2
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      5 comments

Day 1 didn't go quite as I'd hoped -- I didn't get my run in yesterday. Stayed late at work and then decided to prioritize food prep and other things higher so I didn't run. No worries though, I've re-scheduled the run for Saturday. I also fo... Read more

Inspiration or a jump start?

First a bit of good news. It turns out that the water problem under our front step isn't a broken water main, but the hose faucet leaking inside the wall and soaking through the brick. This is really good news because a water main would be $600... Read more
July goals and a bunch of randomness

Alrighty then. I've been procrastinating on this one for a couple of days. Had a pretty good long weekend. Worked from home Friday, friends came over for dinner Friday evening and their daughter, who is the same age as my daughter, spent ... Read more

Hard to believe it's July already. Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there. I'll be heading out for the celebrations shortly, but would like to get a run in before hand. I think it might be a little hot for running -- we'll see. It's... Read more

Likely to be a long one. Yesterday was a crappy day. I'm hoping that by spilling it all out here, I will get it out of my system and be done with it. A bit of background before the story of yesterday: Recently we have hired a cou... Read more
