I’m giving this blog-on-iPhone a shot as I’m driving on the bus to work (did I mention how wonderful public transit is?). I wanted to update everyone on how this week has been health and fitness wise!
Today is day 4 on my 6-week, 10k running plan and I’ve been staying on track! On Monday and Tuesday I ran just over 3 miles in about 30ish minutes – which is good – but nowhere near the pace I used to be. I really think it sucks that once you stop a certain activity for a while your body loses it’s edge and ability :( However, that being said – I know how to get my body back into running shape so it’s my goal.
The night before last I decided for some strange reason that I wanted to workout hard, so I did. I did an ab workout, a kettlebell workout and I went for a run. I was sore before I even went to bed and this morning I was still sore!
Work has been going wonderful and is very busy – which I love. Plus I’m still blown away by the incredible location!
I’ve already found an amazing local coffee shop, a sushi place that serves black rice sushi (supposedly it’s better for you than both white and brown rice? I need to do my research!) and you can’t beat being able to lay on the beach 2 minutes from your office!
Yesterday was so beautiful I got Faith to meet me downtown after work and we headed to Coal Harbour to check out the water front park. It is gorgeous and I think is one of my favorite places to date!
I tool yesterday off from working out and went for a nice long walk from my place in Kits all the way down the Jericho Beach with a friend – so I got some physical activity in!
My food intake has been pretty good – but a few ideas are still in my head about a specific food plan to stick to (high-protein vegetarian diet, the paleo diet, the 4-hour body or maybe it’s jut a very strict clean-eating diet) but that will come once I I’m financially stable and I sell my car back in Halifax. Whew! So much on the go- but I’m balancing out just fine. One thing before another!
Currently on my agenda:
– Sell car
– Buy bicycle (bike to work everyday)
– Find a kettlebell class to go to 2-3 times a week
– Go to 2 yoga classes minimum a week
– Pick a food regimen (not a diet per-say) and stick to it!
– Get my finances back in order (and start saving/investing!)
– Make the most out of this exciting summer in Vancouver!
Oh yea and one of my favorite people in the entire world, Kaylee Hake, is coming next Wednesday for 6 days! Ahhhhh so exited.
Ps. Incase you don’t know- Canada Day is my favorite holiday and it’s next Friday! :D
