Three Things Thursday

1)  The girlies and I had our little photoshoot with the Calgary Herald last night.  The twins more or less cooperated - thought they really just wanted to play on the playground.. At least none of the pics have Doodle looking like this:

Speaking of the article - it was definitely not in today's paper.  I'm thinking it will probably be in tomorrow's edition to ramp up excitement before the events this weekend.

2) I did my first hill training session on the treadmill last night.  What a workout!  I went in with the idea that i would wing it...warmed up for half a kilometre then bumped it up to 6% incline and ran for half a km.  Lowered it back down and recovered for half a km then lather, rinse, repeat a couple more times. 

My butt is so sore today.

3)  I am being a very good girl with my diet this week.  No major pig-outs.  The hummus container in the fridge is still full (instead of wiped out in 2 snacks - really this is the true measure of my restraint).  The key thing is that I am focusing on the prize.  I am starting to read one of the books from my nutrition counseling package.   It said I should write my goals down and post them so I did.  This is what I wrote:

I will reach my goal weight by May 1, 2012 by watching my portions and cutting out excessive snacking.

I know.  Fairly obvious. I just need to up my awareness.  But do-able. For the next 2.5 months - this is me:

The thing is - I really want it.  I've always really wanted it...but right now I am getting tired of saying it's taken me over 2 years to get here.   To be living through my setbacks.   I'm really trying to build better habits and it is my hope that I can maintain them once they are habits.  Hey - it worked for me and exercise, right?


  1. I need to remember my diet for the next 2 months also. It's hard with all the easter candy everywhere you go!
