BOA - Week 8 Tuesday

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

I kind of fell off the blogging bandwagon for a couple of days but I'm back on track now.
On Sunday, I did my first long run in a long time. Actually, it was my first outdoor run in two weeks. Not that good considering I have a half marathon to complete this coming Sunday. The only other exercise that I got that day was grocery shopping. :~) In my downtime, I did make a decision to swear off fast food for the month of November. So far, so good.
Monday morning was my first day of Chas' boot camp. It was challenging but doable. I don't have any DOMS so I guess I'm ready for tomorrow's class. She promises to make each of the remaining 5 weeks more challenging than the previous week.... I'm thinking she wasn't kidding when she said one of us was going to puke. I just hope it isn't me.
Last night, I had another email showdown with the ex. Apparently, the upcoming long weekend isn't a real long weekend. Not by society's definition (his words). I say that if every school, public and separate, in Calgary is taking Monday off then it most certainly DOES count. But hey, what do I know? emoticon
On a good note.. I did not eat in anger.
Oh and I've been tracking my iron levels through Spark again. I'm back in the ranges for that, too.

    Our kids have Monday off too, here in NE Saskatchewan (and the Friday before, and the Tuesday). Definitely a long weekend for them!

    It made me chuckle to see you put down grocery shopping as exercise! That used to be the case when I was dragging a toddler and baby around the store, but I don't think I could justify it anymore. I'm picturing you hauling 50 pounds of bagged groceries while walking 20 blocks home. I only had to learn that lesson once. Geez, I still wince at remembering that....

    Don't puke!

    It isn't a STAT holiday for us offie employees, because we get the Tuesday off instead. The schools must have just given the kids the Monday off to make it easier on them! I'm sorry you had a big fight with your EX about it though! :(

    Good Luck on your 1/2 marathon this Sunday! 'm sure resting up for it isn't such a bad thing!
