Nikki: Weigh in Day-Week 19

Whoops I totally forgot yesterday was weigh in day.  It’s probably because I slept in and was racing around trying to get ready to get myself to the gym for my 9am appointment. So lets check it out now

Current weight:155 lbs

that is +1 lb. 

I did not work out while I was in Jasper!  The only time where I could have fit in a run, I decided to nap instead since I’d hardly slept.  We did however walk for 2 hours while we did a scavenger hunt all over jasper.  My team did cheat and drove for at most 10 minutes but I don’t think it was that much since Jasper is so small.  So back on track yesterday morning by hitting the gym first thing in the am.

It was one of those weeks where life gets in the way of achieving all the goals you set out for yourself.  Let me refresh your memory on what my goals for last week were:

1) to run 25km

2) to pack and have ready to grab quick 100 calorie (or less) snacks

3) to exercise for at least an hour

I only managed to fit in time to run 19km, but hey at least I got in 19km.  I did pack up a bunch of 100 calorie snacks such as canned pears, grapes, hard-boiled eggs and containers of veggies.  My last goal was to exercise for an hour a day and I didn’t really keep track of if I achieved this or not!

This week I am setting some different goals since my running buddies Aline and Jill are both out-of-town and I’m not sure if I’ll get in as much running with out them.

1.) To attend 3 different fitness classes at Spa Lady.  I haven’t check out a few and would like to see which ones I’d enjoy

2.)To run 15km.  I plan to just do my run in the trailer park 3 times this week to reach this goal.  Maybe I can get Ryan to join me again!

3.)To make the yummy Veggie soup that Kira taught me how to make! It’s super healthy and so good.  It’s also easy to freeze and nice to have something filling and healthy that’s easy to grab and eat!

This could also be a hard week to count calories… today I turn 27.  Does that mean my metabolism slows down even more today? shit. Any who I know Birthday (Week) means dinners and lunches out with family and friends, and usually a couple extra bevies here and there.  So it’s even more important for me to get to the gym every day and get a good workout in.  It’s early-ish, 8:25am, I’ve been awake since 7:30am… who the hell gets up that early 1) on their bday 2) on a day they can sleep in? yes, it’s obvious the answer is me, but it’s cause I needed to pound out this blog and get my smaller sized ass to the gym asap so I can have dinner at the Pasta Kitchen this evening! 

  I have a few weeks until Jill and I are done with the “set” time of this weight loss journey.  I have more pictures to come: before, during and current. Me in my target dress and who knows what else! I also plan on continuing this blog after October 31st because I do find that it helps motivate me to get to the gym and work towards the goals I set since I tell all of you about them.
