I needed a break from blogging. So I have not posted since November.
I have missed it though, so I am back.
I still do not have time to blog as much as I used to so I’ve decided that once a week at some-point between Friday-Sundy I will post.
I needed a break from Nov-till now because I wasn’t in the right state of mind to be working out consistently and paying close attention to what I was eating. Not that I was going hard on Christmas cookies, cause I didn’t and I didn’t put on any weight over Christmas! Life just got busy.
I have still been visiting with my nutritionist to discuss what I’m eating, when I’m eating, how to stay motivated etc. And I have a goal to be down to 148 (on her scale) by Feb 15. I had jumped back up to 153 before I went on my trip in November so I figured 5lbs is a reasonable goal for just over a month and if I can do lose more than I will. I say on her scale because there’s a 3lb difference when I weigh in at home compared to her scale. I could also be that I’m not naked in her office weighing in but that’s ok.
My current health/fitness goals for 2014:
1) Get down to 135 by December 2014- taking this nice and slow because I think the slower I do it the easier it will be to maintain when I get to my goal weight.
2) Run 3 half marathons- I’m signed up for one in feb, signing up for the Lulu-lemon Sea Wheeze in Vancouver and have plans to do one in chicago with a girlfriend but I’m not sure I can make it anymore so I will look at possibly doing another one in Edmonton or make another trip out of one.
3) Get good at meal planning, cooking and pre-packaging- I want to make sure that I have healthy snacks to grab at all times, but also breakfasts, lunches and dinners. So whether I plan out my meals for a week and cook them all over the weekend or just at least have breakfasts and lunches ready to go I haven’t decided what will work. I think it will take some trail and error.
Here’s how I plan on reaching some of these goals:
My friends are amazingly supportive. THANK GOD for them! If you’ve follow my blog you know I play on a women’s ball hockey team. My gf Steph (who’s on my ball hockey team) has been making me come to drop-in ball hockey on Saturdays & Wednesdays and any other night that I’m free and drop-in people need a sub. Steph has also made me join another women’s ball hockey team that is in a lower division than our ball hockey team so that I can work on my stick handling and fitness.
Jen and Emma (who you should remember from previous blogs) are also into the ball hockey scene with us. They also got a dog around the same time that I did so we spend a lot of time at the dog park with our furbabies who are also BFF’s so going for walks and runs with our dogs is one of our fav ways to hang out now. except that it’s been -40 WAY TOO OFTEN this stupid winter.
SOOOO I play at least a minimum of 4 hours of ball hockey a week right now. I will continue to do this throughout 2014.
I will be weighing in on Friday mornings, so I will post my weight with my weekly blog.
I weighed in yesterday at 149 (my scale)
I will also post what exercise/activities I’ve done for the week.
I’m sure I will come up with monthly goals as well but I really just wanted to get a post out there. I am off to an outdoor ball hockey tournament, have 4 games today and who knows how many tomorrow before my 2 league games! Wish me luck!
