Day Twenty-Nine

So I guess I have a new weekend pastime. It involves coffee and walking.  Not rocket science by any stretch, but it is a nice relaxing was to spend part of a Sunday.  Now I understand that walking isn’t a huge calorie burner (when compared to two hours at the gym or riding any of the three bikes), but it...

Day Twenty-Eight

The month of April is slowly winding down and so is the 30 Day Challenge (thank goodness).  Now it’s not the no alcohol commitment that I’m looking forward to ending, its hardcore workout schedule.  Now that’s not to say that I will be shutting down working out, but 75% of a month is a lot.  As I come to the...

Day Twenty-Four

Clearly is over extended myself on the leg workout yesterday.  Well, that or my body is saying that after seventeen days working out this month, it was going to need a little bit of a break.  It’s not that my legs hurt that badly (well, my hamstrings were tight enough that I could have used them as guitar strings), it’s...

Day Twenty

I could not fall asleep last night, no matter how hard I tried.  When I finally did fall asleep, nature started chirping at 4am and once I...

Day Nineteen

Thanks to @hoodieruns for chirping, er, I mean encouraging me last night to get my butt out of bed and get it to the gym. This morning wasn’t nearly as tough as I expected it to be (a big ‘Thank You’ to the Ottawa Senators for ending game for after less than four minutes of OT and to @Keilshammer for...

Day Eighteen

So last night was the VIP Rally for the Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart.  What a great event! It really gives you a perspective of why you are fundraising.  We met survivors and those who are riding for loved ones that have been affected by heart attacks or strokes.  Finger foods, 25th anniversary cake, one fire alarm (due to...

Day Seventeen

Welcome back to the GoodLife.  Well that’s what I would be saying if I was happy to be here first thing in the morning.  I’m coming off the bike on the normal Monday evening so my legs are a little rubbery tonight.  It’s a good thing that today is a chest and arm day, because I’m pretty sure I would...
