This week was very busy at work so only got in 9k. Got in a fast 3k this morning and going to start with daily high intensity workouts to rev up the weightloss which is still stagnant. Could do with eating cookies and lattes at Starbucks! Ok, that was only once, but I got talked into ordering Indian food for lunch and man, it was so good and oily.

I'm trying to work on speed and distance. Today's run was a faster one for me with a composite time of 9min/km running 5:1s. I want to be at 8min/km by my race date in 12 weeks. I'd like to finish my 10k in under 90 minutes (some room for pee breaks - three births ya know - and hydration breaks).

Still, I am a fat old slow runner. Could be worse: could be a fatter, slower couch potato!

You are still on track! That is what is important Do you live near Toronto? I live in upstate NY on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario, not far from Kingston, ON. It is hard when you get derailed by an injury or illness but it sound like you are back on track. I'll bet the 1/2 marathon at Disney will be awesome! Keep up the good work!

Thank you for the encouragement!

I live just east of Toronto - the weather hasn't been too bad this winter but sometimes it is hard to get out there.

Some good news: hired a new trainer. His name is Paul and we will be focussing on my running. He was a guest speaker at our running club and he was there to help people brush up on their form and technique. I was mostly being left alone, but it turns out it was because he thought I was doing great! He was able to tell me that:
-I have good mid-foot strike-
-have good arm technique
-good running posture, slightly leaning forward with forward hips
-nice small stride

After the evening, I decided that I liked his energy and asked him if he would take me on as a client. We meet for our first session on a track (egads!!!!) on Friday night. He says he will become my new best/worst friend! He promises lots of emails, and tracking my progress, and several different types of running workouts to help me with my goals of more endurance and speed.

Anyway, sooooooo excited! After losing my first trainer it is exciting to be working with someone again.

Had a great day! Walked around a RV show (love those!) and had lunch with my mom, then met the new trainer.

We did a good workout together. We:

-walked, then ran up a hill a few times to get warmed up
-then I did a light run around the track (400metres)
-then 4x 200 metres at my fastest speed, aiming for a negative split on my second 100 metres, and a light run for the remainder of the 100 metres around the track
-Some stretching

In all, we did about 2.5km. Feeling good and a wee bit sore.

Really like my trainer - yay! See him again in a week and he gave me homework.

I forgot to add above that we also did 3 minutes of bench-climbing as fast as I could. I am paying for it today, 2 days afterwards, with a very funny walk. While my quads are ok, my inner thigh muscles are verrrry tender and cause me to walk a little, um, strange.

I haven't run since Friday but I have been very busy with babies being born. Friday night I got about 3 hours sleep, then was called to a nice birth at 0130am. Got 3 hours sleep in the hospital, then went to another birth Saturday morning. Slept for 4 hours Saturday evening, then got up for dinner, and slept for another 4 hours from 1230-430 am when I got called to another birth this morning! Just got up from another nap, and have *another* client in early labour. Coffee is my friend. All in all, 2 boys and 1 girl, so far.

Just ate, so am planning for a run around 630. It is cold here (-5c) so will bundle up and just go for a quick 2-3km. If I don't get out I will have to start off with my trainer on a bad foot, so out I go. I will try to get in some free weights as well.

Don't even ask about my weight. Not up, but NOT DOWN. Argh. I guess some food journaling is in order.

Today:

Breakfast:
125ml orange juice
Breakfast burrito thing with eggs, peppers, cheese, some sauce (was ick), on a whole wheat wrap
250ml milk - 2%
coffee

Lunch (now):
1 1/3c homemade low-fat high protein granola (hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and oatmeal toasted)
~350 mls raw milk

Guess I need some veg/fruit for a snack later.

Had a great run tonight! -7c but ran 3k in 26 mins doing 10:1s (which is good for me!).

Dinner:

4 chicken wings (I know, but I didn't cook)
1/2 cup basmati (measured)
4 raw mushrooms
1/2 cup raw carrots
sm amount soya sauce

Been drinking lots of water today. Only 2 coffees in total.

Also, once at the hospital for another birth I ate about 6-8 small Wheat Thins and about 3 tbsp light hummous, about 10 cherry tomatoes and about 6 tortilla chips, two teas with a less than a teaspoon of milk, and 150ml milk.

So yesterday was fun: met my trainer at a trailhead about 10 minutes from my house. It was a forested trail, leading uphill towards a scenic look out, down to the river below. Very pretty. Lots of spruce and evergreen trees. And ice. It was cleared a bit, but it wasn't a big cleared trail.

My trainer felt a bit bad because he thought there would be less ice, given the recent weather, but it was very good core exercise keeping afoot on the icy trails. We did some running, and hiking uphill. Right now we are working on increasing my overall strength, as well as working on my running form. We got to the top in about half an hour. Good hard huffing and puffing work.

Downhill was easier but just as treacherous and I fell on my bum/hip. It was fine and today I am just a little sore from wrenching my neck.

In all we covered about 4.5km, and were out for about 60 minutes. Felt really good. It was fun, too!

The best news is that I am down a pound to 243. At my height it means that my BMI is 35 and down a full point. My BMI was 39 when I started last summer. Loving that. I don't know if it was the food journaling that is helping, or just increasing my activity quite a lot, but I am pleased. I JUST REALIZED THAT I HAVE LOST 10% OF MY BODY WEIGHT!


Hope y'all have a good day.

Breakfast:
Cauliflower - raw - 2 cups
low-fat fruit yogurt (small pot)
plum
coffee and milk and 1/2 tsp sugar

Snack:
Sauteed veggies

Lunch:
Low fat, low calorie lentil and bacon soup (350mls)
45g cheese, spiced
8 water crackers
coke zero

Dinner:
1.5 cups spaghetti with tomato sauce
1 italian sausage
sauteed mushrooms and peppers
2 turtle chocolates

Drank 2L of water today.

Hello!

Bright and shiny and warm here today.

Started my day at 0155 with a page from a labouring client.

Snack:
-125 milk
-chai tea with milk and sugar

Breakfast:
-egg burrito with peppers, cheese and jalapenos
-coffee with milk and sugar

Then I slept from 1130 am to 330pm.

Lunch:
-two slices seed bread with butter
-low fat yogurt
-two clementines

Snack:
-raw walnuts, tamari almonds and 4 very small tomatoes

Dinner:
-Low-fat salisbury steak tv dinner (low carb).


Exercise:
55 minute run spanning 6.1km including that hill twice again per running coach

I took my measurements today and compared them measurements taken Jan 17:

Jan 17:
Bust: 50.5
Waist: 45.25
Hips: 51.75
Waist to hip ratio: .88

March 11:
Bust: 50
Waist: 43.5
Hips: 50
Waist to hip ratio: .87

That is a reduction in 4" in 2 months! Yay! And a reduction in my waist to hip ratio of a wee smidge.

Feeling happy! And today's measurements were not first thing in the morning like they were in January so they represent the worst case scenerio.

Anyway, off I go to home visits.

Good morning!

Home with the kids for March Break, and finally off call (except for one special client) and looking forward to it.

I have a MOUNTAIN of laundry to do. We look like clothes hoarders, except the drawers are empty and it is all living in and around already-full laundry baskets. Today's task it to tame the laundry tiger.

Tonight I am leading our local Running Room Learn to Run (woo hoo!) as the main leader is away. My running coach is coming too, so he'll take the front of the pack and I will head up the rear. So I should get in about 25 mins easy running.

I will try to get in 20 of core today as well - DONE
Ran an easy run of 2.5k with the Learn to Run group

Breakfast:
3 eggs with green salsa
1 slice prebiotic seed bread with butter
coffee with milk and sugar

Lunch:
Tuna sandwich on whole wheat
1/2 slice bacon

Snack:
Brown rice syrup sesame bar for energy before class

Dinner:
Ground beef with low-fat gravy over 1.5 cups raw green beans

I need more greens in my diet. The supermarket has been depressing lately with the lack of fresh, local produce. This week has been low for fruits and veggies for me.
