  • How was everyone's weekend? Good! A good mix of fun, work, family and fitness :)

    Struggles/Successes? Successes, I am staying on my goal of at least 3 fitness activities a week, and being better at remembering to log food. Yesterday was fathers day and we celebrated my mom's bday, so that was a gongshow foodwise. It made me kind of realize that really I should have a day that I Just don't bother logging or feeling guilty about what I eat, because not only did I eat way to much, but because I was busy I forgot to log most of it...it would be better to not log at all so that it doesn't work into my  weekly averages at all. So from now on I think I will take my day off as a "freebie" day. (more sustainable)

    Plans for the week (food)? Plans for the week (exercise)? FINALLY starting to run, so my plan for food is that I bough a lot of greens so hopefully throw some more salads in the mix, and I plan to run Monday-wed-fri and do something active tues thurs (walking or zumba or something fun that's not running).

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Food challenge of the week: Try a new recipe or find a new food item that is healthy and delicious! I like the idea of a food challenge :)

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    GTKY:

    How often do you eat out for lunch? Not very...but I work nights, so I am at home at lunch time.

    What are your must haves for snacks at work? dried mango

    What time of day do you prefer to exercise? Mid morning (10 or 11ish)

    Good afternoon ladies! Sorry for the late posting of this check in!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    How was everyone's weekend?

    I had a good weekend! Spent time with the hubs, the dogs, and my dad :) I got sunburnt on Friday while hanging out in my hammock but I'm OK with that because it was a beautiful day!

    Struggles/Successes?

    I haven't struggled lately. I'm doing really good and I feel really good which is the most important thing. I'm keeping up with my Ab challenge, 17 days down, and I went for a mile run tonight. I'm feeling so good and I hope this feeling continues :)

    Plans for the week (food)?

    You all know I don't eat healthy! On the menu this week is... brats, burgers, onion rings, spaghetti, chicken kabobs, chicken noodles w/ gravy, and pancakes

    Plans for the week (exercise)?

    Ab challenge and running!

    GTKY:

    How often do you eat out for lunch?

    Not very often. There are only 2 options in the town that I work in, Subway or the Deli at the grocery store so thankfully I'm not tempted by much.

    What are your must haves for snacks at work?

    I loves anything crunchy & anything sweet

    What time of day do you prefer to exercise?

    I typically run right after work and do my Ab challenge during my evening TV shows

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Have a great week everyone :)

    Hey, Hey Hockeytown!photo hockeytown_zps6a7377b0.jpg
  • How was everyone's weekend? Pretty uneventful

    Struggles/Successes? Success: I went to a Saturday morning zumba class by the lake and it was awesome! Struggle: I made some amazing strawberry-rhubarb crumble... and it's almost gone. I was also planning on going to a yoga class on top of a mountain yesterday, but ended up canceling because I thought it was going it rain, and it was 20+ minutes away. I didn't want to drive there and have it rained out. It didn't end up raining. 

    Plans for the week (food)? I hate to say it, but I don't have too much planned in the way of food this week, which is a major recipe for trouble! 

    Plans for the week (exercise)? Zumba Tuesday & Thursday

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Food challenge of the week: Try a new recipe or find a new food item that is healthy and delicious!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    GTKY:

    How often do you eat out for lunch? Once a week or not at all

    What are your must haves for snacks at work? I crave something crunchy in the afternoon, so usually crackers or an apple

    What time of day do you prefer to exercise? Ideally in the morning before my shower, but my afternoon zumba classes have been working well!

    Struggles/Successes? I keep craving junk!  I have added a lot more fruits and veggies back in to my diet though.

    Plans for the week (food)? I don't plan any more and just make light things when I'm hungry.  Last night I had a salad and a few hours later a sandwich.

    Plans for the week (exercise)? Walk during breaks at work.  I need to add more in though.

    How often do you eat out for lunch? 1 during the work week max and 1-2 times on weekend

    What are your must haves for snacks at work? String Cheese

    What time of day do you prefer to exercise? I would prefer morning, but I am not a morning person...so evening it is!
