The post about a reluctant rest day, the triple hole and shacking up in Montreal...



  • Meanwhile, yesterday on Instagram...
  • It's #coffeetime. Cool August mornings means summer is coming to an end. Sad for some, but fall is my favorite season. Fall means great clothes, leather, and great running weather:-) 
  • I'm going to have to admit defeat. The gym is winning and my thighs have gotten bigger. I've a couple pairs of jeans that are too tight in the legs. My fuel belt has needed to be taken in, but my pant legs are snugger. So my waist is getting smaller and my legs are getting bigger. Perfect combination for purchasing pants:-( Skinny jeans may be a thing of the past. Even my calves are bigger. And new rule; I can't buy pants without a bit of lycra. I need that stretch. I'm not upset my pants aren't fitting the same. My body is changing and I know this is just the tip of the iceberg. So I will embrace the change.
  • Trying to decide what to do right now. I messed my left ankle doing HIIT on the dreadmill yesterday. It was bugging me on Friday too. Do I rest today? I've worked out 5 days in a row. It won't kill me. But maybe it will. I'll have another cuppa java and think about it...





  • So this just happened. Clearly I'm going thru a midlife crisis. Why else would I pay someone to inflict pain on me not once but twice? It was either this or a tattoo. This will do for now. The tattoo is still in the works. Stuffing my face with tuna, avocado and baby carrots then heading to Walmart for some provisions. Got a mountain of laundry to do as well. I laid off the training today. My ankle is making my entire left leg ache...





  • It's #winetime and I'm back to my old habits. I've barely eaten anything today. Could be because I did nothing fitness wise. Could be that I've been crazy busy running around. Either way, my calories are pretty low and instead of eating food I'm drinking wine. Groceries are done and laundry is started. My legs are aching and my calves are really tight. I think I need to roll them out later. 
  • And besides still having to submit a bunch of claims for insurance, answer old emails (I'm sorry for falling behind again), and booking a hotel for Montreal, I've still gotta blog and send a few emails (regarding the charity boxing match) out. And clean my silver chains. Almost forgot about them! Plus get to bed at a decent hour because I'm running 8k in the morning. Today does not have enough hours in the day...





  • This! This is why I can't get rid of that last bit of chub. I cannot seem to keep my fat intake low. Today's culprits were avocado and pork sausages. Plus all the cream. That would be the deliciousness that I put in my coffee. My calories were down today. I did not snack. And I was running around all day. So even healthy fats add up. Although I can't say No Frills Hot Italian Sausages are healthy. They're not. But they are delicious. And on sale this week.
  • I only got a fraction of what I needed to get done completed tonight. I still have some outstanding things for tomorrow but my hotel in Montreal is booked. Julien is stoked. He just wants to go to La Ronde, the Six Flags that's there. Seems that all my vacation time this summer has been spent in theme parks. It's all about the 7 year old, just like it should be. My bed is calling me. I'm up early in the morning to run...

  1. I love how you do a daily analysis and determine where you need to improve. I need to start doing this but that involves logging everything and I just can't bring myself to do it...yet.
