And the award goes to...

Well, I apparently get the dumba$$ award today. After fasting for 30 hours, I attempted to run a race today. I originally signed up for the 12k but settled on the 6k after I saw the race route. It was a two loop course and the first loop almost ... Read more
Some days, it's all worth it.

As some of you might know, I'm a HM instructor at one of the local Running Rooms here in Calgary. Some days, it takes everything I have to haul my butt out of bed on a Sunday to be there for my "students". I get tired, unmotivated and (gasp) l... Read more
My biggest fitness accomplishment so far?
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      1 comments

I think that, so far, my biggest accomplishment has been running a half marathon. Second place goes to climbing the Calgary Tower's 802 stairs six times. They were both huge challenges and they both gave me the same feeling of pride when I was... Read more

Ok so it's now Wednesday and, so far, this week has not been stellar. I have been on my water (of all things) for two days. Technically, I hit on Monday but I should have had more in preparation for my Tuesday run. I hit my goal (6) for F&V on... Read more
Just a little "boom"
Friday, April 03, 2009      2 comments

Had a little boom tonight. I REALLY couldn't fight off my sushi craving. Sparks says 194 calories and then I had my ice cream sandwich (FINALLY) which takes me 292 over. Thankfully, I worked most of that off on the treadmill tonight. ... Read more

I stepped on the scale this morning. Considering I'm hosting a party for Mother Nature this week, I thought that I'd GAIN weight. I weighed in on Monday with my group and I was at 127 and today, I'm at 125. I've lost 2 pounds!! Now I really ... Read more
Hello April!!
Thursday, April 02, 2009      2 comments

Go ahead, ask me how my day was. Ok, so I woke up at 10 minutes to six and thought "my first appt. is at 8:30, I'm going back to sleep until 7:20". When I woke up at 7:20, my first thought was "NO, my first appt's @ 7:30". Believe it or not, ... Read more

A good start to the sixth week
Tuesday, March 31, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday I only went 41 calories over the top of my range. In my defense, if this had been last week I'd have been under because my range changed on Sunday when I adjusted my calories burned for the week. Oh well. I had TEN servings of fru... Read more

I'm up early on another SNOWY Sunday morning to head to the Running Room for our LSD run. For the third or fourth week in a row, Mother Nature has decided that we need to run in 3+ inches of snow. I have NEVER seen this much snow in a 16 week ... Read more
This is more like it.
Saturday, March 28, 2009      1 comments

I drank my water, ate my fruits and veggies, got a bonus 20 minute run in today AND only went over my calories by 13!! It won't make up for the last two months of crazy eating but it certainly is a step in the right direction. ... Read more
