saturday musings

Worked uber late last night due to one instrument crapping out on me. It's a lemon! Oh well, cha ching! Overtime pour moi! I bank it so that I can have more time off later. Didn't get home till 0130h, though. *yawn*

I was up at 0645h for C. to pick me up to go to the new WW meeting at Dalhousie. I think I'm officially certifiable, now, btw. =P

Have I mentioned how I love the morning WI? I think I have. Here's the proof: down 3.6 from last Thursday evening's WI. Of course, my scale says only 0.6, but that's because I'm a morning weigh-er in-ner! Regardless, the scale is moving in the right direction. I'm going to give credit to the yoga/meditation--I've been practicing daily (a la Shirls' 30 day challenge) since the rain and shift work equaled no exercise for me this week. It's gotta be the mind/body connection. But the sun is back and I'm taking advantage!

Waiting for S. We're heading to the mountains for a little hike. Both of us are feeling somewhat claustrophobic after being cooped up for a week. Thank you, Mother Nature. We won't take you for granted again!

I also convinced S. to sign up for Winterstart with me. It's a 5 mile run in Banff in November. And really, who cares what your time is if it gives you a reason to be in Banff for the weekend?!

Fit test for Boot Camp is Tuesday and I intend to rock it! Already I can see that the bra fat roll (you know what I'm talking about) is smaller. I like it! And the collar bones have made a reappearance, too!

Food today has been slightly erratic due to the late night, early morning, back to bed...but here it is:

0830h: grande non-fat, no water Tazo chai & Egg & Sausage muffin @ S'bucks
0938h: crawled back into bed
1130h: alarm (not pretty)
1300h: chai (equivalent to above but made at home) 1 cup blueberries

That's all for now. If you've made it this far, you deserve a reward!
H =)

Late Day Edit:

1600h: Peanut Butter Cookie Lara bar. OH. MY. FREAKING. GOD. WAS. THIS. GOOD!
1700h: Rained on in mountains, mad dash back to car
1745h: trail mix for the road home
1845h: Pasta dinner (cheese ravioli with artichoke, capers, olives, spinach, red pepper, EVOO and lemon with one piece of bread dipped in oil and vinegar
1945h: long walk through Confederation park!

now (2145h): bit of yoga and off to catch some zzzz's!

I think I'm going to do 30 days of yoga too! I just discovered and LOVE it. I always feel so clear headed after yoga/meditation.

That Winterstart run is intriguing me. Don't know if I feel like driving Highway 1 in November. But we'll see....!
