A blog of my own =)

Saturday, April 03, 2010

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in other peoples lives, I subscribe to 100 blogs, that I forget that somebody, somewhere might be interested in what's going on in my world.
This weekend I'm away from home with PEHASS2 visiting his parents on their miniature horse farm. Actually, we opted to stay at the Ramada because we brought Hughy and the boys with us. ANYWAY... somewhere in the fitness centre, I found my ST spark. I'm so happy. I haven't done any in so long, that didn't involve my Thursday night Functional Fitness class, and I was actually giddy with joy when I dripped sweat on the floor - LOL.

My plan for April:
Running - continue training for my HMs in May (1st and 14th). This includes running steady, tempo and LSDs for the next four weeks. (ie: run 3x/week)

Strength training - this'll be the hard one. In addition to going to FF on Thursdays, I'd like to make a new habit of getting up early and going to my gym at least twice a week. I'm thinking Tuesday/Thursday or Tuesday/Saturday.

Nutrition - someone at work asked me if I always eat healthy and I told them "80% of the time". This month, I'd actually like to follow through. I gotta stop blowing my M-F's hard work on the weekends.

Speaking of work... let's get a job related goal in here - get organized. Get calm. My job is starting to effect me because some of the people I work with act like they're in high school. I can't change that... but I CAN ignore it and get on with my day.

That's about it. I'll check back in a week (or less) and let you know how things are going. TTFN!

    True true...you can't change anyone elses behavior, but you can control how you react to it. I so know about the high school mentality thing. I have had to drop a few friends recently, but I made new ones, and they enjoy doing active things with me on a regular basis.

    So about that kickboxing? hahaha might be a good way to get rid of some of the work stress!

    100 blogs? REALLY??? Wow... emoticon

    As for the ST, if I may, I would recommend T-Sat, and that way you're getting 3 ST sessions in a week, 2 days apart. Then (if you want MY opinion, though I notice you didn't ask, LOL! so take it for what it's worth emoticon ) you could run on Monday, wednesday and Friday, or make one of those days Sunday for your LSD run, and have one day off. Well, that's pretty much how I do it anyway, Mon-Wed-Fri is ST days, and my run days are T-Th-Sat, with Sunday as my rest day.

    Anyway, good job on the goals! I think I need to make some April Goals...

    Oh Penny-I need to do this! Not only with my eating-I am usually in my range but not eating all the right stuff. Plus I would like to drop about 5lbs. But the main thing is just setting some goals...sometimes I just feel as if I am floating along. Plus get my neck taken care of and other health issues that just keep getting in the way! I digress. Sounds like you have a great plan! I am so glad you found your spark again. Keep it up.

    I made a goal last October to get organized at work. It took me about six weeks before I could call it done, but I love (LOVE) how I feel in my office now. And work is almost easier, cause I can find things so much better. I don't think I've had to "look" for a file since then.

    Enjoy your weekend. Glad you found your SP spark :)
