Weekly Review

That's me in my new snowshoes! I settled on the MSR Evo. Amazing for climbing. Very noisy on packed snow. Kind of look like weapons on your feet. I love 'em!  We snowshoed for about an hour on Saturday in -32 C (about -25 F) weather. Brrr.... but it is a pretty vigorous activity so you warm up fast (thankfully). 

This week was short due to the Canadian holiday and I worked a lot more than I usually do. As a result, my exercise suffered. I hit the gym on Thursday for Couch to 5K Week 8.1- running for 28 minutes. Still going at a better speed- between 4.7 and 5.0 (mostly running at 4.8). I also did some rowing, ice skating and some walking this week. But this has been my most slack week in months. 

Food was decent. Not perfect, but it will do. In the beginning of this "diet" I found it very easy to eat super healthy. But since I slipped up I have found it very hard to get back on track! I'm not sure why that is. I love veggies and fruit and healthy stuff, but I equally love junk. I find tracking calories a bit tedious, but I don't think I want to switch to Weight Watchers. I'm going to try really hard this week to track my calories every day. 

After Christmas, I bought an Elliptical machine that was on sale. I thought I would use it all the time, but I don't use it much at all. This week I am hoping to hop on it everyday, even if it is for just 10 minutes. I want to step on it everyday! 

Vitamins are still going well. If anything, they remind me to drink a glass of water in the morning. 

Speaking of water, I'm doing so-so on it. I am using the app "Waterlogged" on my iPhone. To be honest, the app is a little annoying. But it works once in awhile.

That's it for the review this week. I have lots of blog post ideas coming up. I just need to find time to post them all! As you can see, I re-designed my blog! What do you think?!?

Also, I want to thank all my lovely followers and readers for the great comments and support. I am really loving connecting with you all and reading your stories! Let's hit this one out of the park!!!


  1. Hi Lizzy
    I love you new looks soooo different...I liked the old one, but like this even more. I love picking up the news of everyone on my list - its great to connect with people isn't it!
    You are very lucky to have your own eliptical - good luck with the plan to use it more

  2. Look at you go Lizzy! I am glad you posted on the Hungry Girl Buffalo Chick recipe, I was thinking of trying it but now, meh...I might try something else and report on it. Have a good week.

  3. Then ten min goal for the elliptical is an excellent one. I've tried similar things in the past, and it should get you going:)
