So I did the Walmart Walk for Miracles yesterday, and it was a great experience. Joey and Arianna walked with me, and it was a beautiful day. It was great to see so many people out to walk and raise money for the IWK hospital. It felt great to complete my first charity walk and it definately wasn't my last!!
I have also decided that I will be definately doing some form of the bluenose next year, either the 5 or 10k depending on how my training goes. I was actually able to complete day 1 of the couch to 5k, so we'll see how things go from there.
I am feeling good, and looking forward to vacation. I am still planning to exercise and eat well on vacation, even though it will be hard. I am trying to come up with a diet plan that combines the WW core plan, with south beach because even though I will have to limit some things, it is the best diet for my PCOS.
I am also going to become a pampered chef consultant to earn some extra money, so if anyone reads this and wants some pampered chef or to host a catalogue show and earn free product, let me know! I guess that's all for now, cheers
It seems like June is always a super busy month, and this year is no exception. Joey has his course party Friday, I have a birthday party Saturday night and the walmart walk for miracles is sunday, then next weekend is a wedding we are going to, and fathers day. After that we are heading to cape breton for our anual family get together, bbq and lobster party, which is extra special this year because my Uncle breton will be home with his family, and I havent seen them since our wedding 4 years ago.
Joey will be going away July 6th for 3 weeks, hopefully all will go well in my trial run as a single parent. This will get me used to what it will be like in October when Joey goes away for 6 months!! I am trying not to think about that!
Eating is going ok, I am not counting points or calories, I just needed a break. I am going to come up with my own core/south beach style eating plan and hopefully it will work out for me. I am still exercising quite a bit though, and I am going to try running on the treadmill later :)
Yesterday was a great day, we walked to play group and had a great time there and then last night was yoga class. I can't believe how much I love yoga, it helps me relax, and I can feel my body getting stronger in certain poses, and it really helps with back pain. I had pain last night when I went, and after the pain was so minimal. I hope that once this session is done I can find a good video or something because I can't go in the fall, as Joey will be away.
I made some lunch foods to freeze, I made a veggie chili, with 3 kinds of beans, and a type of rice with tomatoes and kidney beans. these should hold me for a little while anyway.
I am planning my 7k walk today but I'm not sure if I will because I feel exhausted right now. my exercise goals for June are to add some strength training, and start the learn to run program. I am almost to where I need to be motivation wise, but I just need a little kick sometimes.
