  1. The weekend ending week 3 was a bit of a gong show. Friday was busy with family stuff/end-of-year BBQ's & driving to the cottage where I hoped to finish my weekly goal count in fine form. Saturday was a day full of "other activities" like carrying canoes, playing ball with the kids, peddling a paddle-boat across the lake and back...general cottage funness. Unfortunately, Sunday was rainy, cool and dank all day so I only managed to get in some hill repeats for my run workout. Our cottage is located on a hill; driveway - up, trail to lake - down. I was on solo daddy-duty so while the kids played a board game I decided to run up one side, then down the other and back a few times...in the rain. The hill is about 15% up the driveway side, and 20% grade up the lake side (with stairs for a portion of it). After 6 reps (both sides) the natives were becoming restless, but I was pretty much toast anyway so I called it a day. Sunday night I got home, put out the garbage, unpacked etc. but ran out of time to fit in my missed workout. C'est la vie. Week 3 Results 3 Runs A Week – 3. 2 runs early in the week, 1 hill sprint workout 2 "Other" Activities Per Week – 1 (Although it was an all day fun session) Start Eating More – meh...this one seem to be falling off the radar lately....got to get back on it. Focus More at Work – ...this one too... Project Mayhem - PM was up and down this week, but really good on the weekend so that was nice. Hopefully that continues into week 4
  2. Week #3 is off to a good start; I was able to squeeze in two runs in 2 consecutive days! All joking aside, the weather has been really humid as of late so they were schwetty as hell, but I'm starting to get back in the groove. Last night I didn't do much in terms of activity, but I did coach my son's t-ball game so at least I was out and about. Time to get moving again
  3. Week 2 Results 3 Runs A Week – 2. Unfortunately my weekend was very full and my ability to get out for that 3rd run fell short. 2’s not bad but had I been a bit more organized I could have make it work 2 "Other" Activities Per Week – 2. Nailed this one this past week. Saturday I played ball hockey with the kids, and Wednesday was biking etc. Start Eating More – I’ve been doing ok at this one, actually making a point to eat lunch instead of skipping it. Slowly this one is getting easier to hit. Focus More at Work – Bad, bad, bad. The week started ok, but went south from there. Project Mayhem – Hit and miss. Project Mayhem was truly mayhem at the start of the week, but levelled out near the end of the week; it it’s toll though.
  4. Well, week #2 is off to a roaring start...not quite. No runs yet, and Project Mayhem has been bouncing back and forth from manageable to completely ridiculous. this is how I feel right now: In other news, I achieved one of my "other" workouts by doing some outdoor activities with my coworkers at a staff BBQ yesterday. Some light mountain biking, bodyweight lifting (team building-esque stuff), coached my son's t-ball practice and walked there and back....so, I'm counting it.
  5. Week 1 Results 3 Runs A Week – I managed to get 2 runs in last week, but Sunday morning wasn’t exactly conducive to getting out for number 3 2 "Other" Activities Per Week – I’m going to give myself 1 for Saturday’s landscape-a-thon. I spent a good chunk of the day pulling large rocks out of my garden to reset them, spreading gravel, and mulch etc. Sunday, again wasn’t the best day and so I didn’t get nearly enough done to count it. Start Eating More – Last week was pretty good, I managed to eat lunch most days, even it was something smaller than I used to have. Focus More at Work. – Focus has been a bit better, though Friday could have used a bigger push. This one was more of a stress reaction based on… Project Mayhem – Ah yes, the bane of my existence lately…as the week progressed last week, the stress associated with this one simply built. I was better in my reaction/ability to deal with the stress but by the end of the week I was pretty wiped out. The start of week 2 isn’t looking much better either.
  6. I like a wide variety of music which often leads to some "interesting" transitions when using shuffle mode. Today's winner: to this
  7. Project Mayhem took over last night and I didn't get out for a run as planned...hopefully tonight will be more productive
  8. Well, last night I finally got my ass back out for a run. It's been so long since my last run that my watch was completely dead so I'm not sure of the exact distance, but realistically It's more important that I got out than how far it was. Schwetty, humid night, but it felt good. 30 minutes, 5kmish.
  9. Back Story: I've fallen into a dark place over the past few months/year, and every time I try and get up I fall further down the slope/deeper into the hole. My activity level is virtually nil, and I've developed some bad habits (some worse than others). I'm carrying a few extra pounds, and a few injuries but mostly a pretty grim view of things, so much so my wife has even commented on it. I's time to take some steps in the direction of positive behaviour/self improvement. I know if I set lofty goals of changing everything in one go, I'll ultimately fail and implode again, leaving me exactly where I was....or worse. Because of this, I'm focusing on merely turning the ship around and making some small changes. First, I need to get exercising and moving again. I'm going to aim for 3 runs a week, and 2 "other" activities. As I said earlier, I'm carrying a few injuries so things like Rock Climbing will be put on the back burner until I'm healed up, but eventually I'd like to get back into it. Secondly, I need to start eating more. My diet is fairly healthy overall in terms of content (i.e. - not a lot of crap), but I'm not getting enough calories and it's making things...difficult; some people are stress eaters, I'm a stress non-eater. Third, I need to focus more at work. The non-eating thing, stress and lack of sleep are making it difficult to do my best at work. unfortunately I don't know how to quantify/measure this one... Last, I have a private goal. Call it Project Mayhem if need be, but it's something that needs to be attended to. I may divulge more details on it later, but as it stands this one will be played close the vest for now.
