Ha! I should whine on here more often. Look how many of you came out of the woodwork to comment yesterday. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Thank you, I needed it! (I’m worried with all of you BLBE Challengers out there, that the rest of us will get lost….don’t forget about us!)

I was just reading some comments on Amy’s blog and all of you with your “bring it” attitude are awesome and hysterical. The motivation is fantastic, and I’m hoping to catch some of it. I’m really starting to wish I had some sort of goal so I could join you, but honestly my big thing right now is just maintaining and toning so it’s sort of hard to use that. I’ll just cheer myself on right along with you all.

I want to take a moment to thank all of you that are doing the CIBC Run for the Cure. I can’t do it this year, as it’s the day before DBF leaves for 5 weeks again, but I had really considered it. After the accomplishment I felt when I did the Relay back in June, I decided that I would like to get involved in more of these activities. But since I can’t do it this time, I’m greatful that many of you are and I will be thinking about you and cheering you all on on race day.

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I did indeed get to the gym at lunchtime. Had to cut the HIIT short by 5 minutes and left out a couple of arm excercises in order to get in and out in under an hour, but it was a good workout and I’m glad I went. I also went for a brisk 15 minute walk after dinner last night. It’s really starting to cool off in the evenings but it felt good. Today is cardio day and since it’s nice out I think I’ll go for a walk along the local trail again.

Food was a little over, but I think with the exercise it probably mostly evened out. I didn’t eat anything terrible, just maybe a little too much, and not enough fruit & veg. Oh well, today is a new day!

Today’s plan….

– ww english muffin with natural PB & smear of jam
– coffeeeeeeee (tried with vanilla soy milk today and it’s pretty yummy)
– Gala apple with light Laughing Cow
– homemade butternut squash soup, Ancient Grain tortilla with leftover baked black beans
– cucumber slices
– baby carrots
– Kashi bar if needed
– not a frigging clue what to make for dinner….didn’t do a proper grocery shop and now I’m stumped….I’ll think about it. 🙂
– blueberry bran muffin & decaf tea
