Jeez where's the time going?! This week held a lot of new little challenges, including a mini-emotional-meltdown when I interviewed for, and was accepted as, a school bus driver here in the city. I have 9 days (40 hours) worth of training to g... Read more

Thursday, August 09, 2012      5 comments

I don't usually plan meals this far in advance but, for the sake of earning points, I'll take a stab at this. My breakfasts are usually the same thing(s) and I try to keep it under 500 calories including my coffee with cream, milk, cereal and b... Read more

July week two - progress
Saturday, July 14, 2012      7 comments

This week went by way too quickly. I think it's because I'm SO unprepared for the family's trip to NS next week that Sunday feels like it should be a week away but, in reality, it's tomorrow. My progress this week: 1 - to continue running ... Read more
BLC Summer Break Plan
Friday, July 13, 2012      7 comments

Sadly, BLC19 ends this coming Tuesday. Happily, the Seasonal Accountability Challenge begins on the 25th so there won't be too many days when I'll be accountable to no one but myself. THAT could not end well. To stay on track over the BLC... Read more

This weekend, I ran the Starbucks Run for Women 10k on Saturday and then the HM clinic group run 9 km on Sunday. I felt pretty good while running both. The weather was perfect. No small feat on Saturday when, up until 30 minutes before the ra... Read more

Thursday, June 21, 2012      8 comments

Not sure about anyone else but I'm seriously lacking in motivation lately. Thursday through Monday, when I know my fellow Amazons (BLC19) are counting on me, things pick up BUT the other days it's an internal struggle to get to the gym or out o... Read more
