Andrea I think you're saying too many nice things about me! I'm not that superb :oops: Talking to you cleared up my mind a lot. Thanks!! It was a great afternoon/evening. I'm really loooking forward to our hardcore day tomorrow, I know we'll still have much more fun. We'll use all that nice stuff we ate today. And tomorrow there should be no cake or pie I think, even though they were hmmmmmm so yummy!

Saturday I went on a 3.5 hour bike ride.
Sunday I rode my bike for 1 hour, then indoor rock climbed for 3hours, then walked some around town.
Eating a lot of falafel sandwiches, chickpea salad, and tabouleh cause a new falafel place opened up and everything is a dollar this week. So yummy!!

Cardio was 20minutes elliptical and 30minutes on bike around town.

Eating was a kale blueberry smoothie, a falafel sandwich, and a clif builder bar so far

Today we rock climbed indoor cause it rained all day. We climbed for 3 hours, went really well. Then a friend and I biked to Burlington from Toronto 110km round trip, had a couple nice picnics along the way, it rained on and off but it was refreshing. First long ride this year, i gotta do more so I don't lose the momentum.

Just had a protein shake with that artichoke protein powder, don't remember the name. A couple energy bars on the ride and strawberry strip things, and earlier leftover pasta, curry and tofu from fresh.

Today a friend woke me up at 5:50am and I biked her to work. I alway forget how productive I am for the entire day when I work out first thing in the morning. I even mopped today and I rarely mop. It was a 25km round trip lots of hill. Now I'm dog training my monster. There is a bar installed in the hallway to do pullups and hang from in the house! So fun, I've set my goals. Currently I can not pull myself up without a little jump and can do a couple half pullups from the top. My goals is to do two complete pullups without the jump start by Sept 15. Nice to have it in the house, I look forward to training on it. Also hanging from it now at 60sec.

Eating: very clean today so far! I've set my alarm clock to go every three hours so I don't forget to eat or so I won't overeat.

I'm back from a long vacation. I have many a goals for myself this year. This coming March I'm going on a major expedition and need to train. Love having something to work towards, it'll make weight training so much easier. My goals revolve around becoming extremely fit in all areas so i can keep up with the others, be a strong and reliable team member, and not kill myself.
I started training my newly adopted doberman/german shepherd to run with me, she's still very aggressive towards anything/anyone else but me and the family. She needs to be seen by a behaviourist cause she's fricken psycho. Poor thing I wonder what her previous life was like before she arrived at the shelter.

Some goals:
Bike and Run more with hills to develop more leg strength and endurance
Stair climb with 50lb pack (buildings or stepmaster)
be able to do 2 pull ups and 5 chin ups
Up my weights significantly to build strength and power
weight train in endurance too, lift lighter but much longer
Rock climb/kayak for fun ways to build upper body strength
Other technical stuff specific to the expedition...so fun!!!!
Improve spanish

It'll be a busy busy year! but soo awesome.

Workout for today was just a short stressful run with my dog in the rain. I ate a couple berry protein shakes, some granola, two gala apples, a veggie tofu coconut curry and had a soy latte with 3 espresso shots (which keeps me awake for exactly 9 hours, 3 more hours to go then it should wear of and then just maybe sleep will finally happen.)

So today I didn't follow my diet but I didn't go crazy on the junk...that's kind of acceptable. Actually I did go overboard on the carbs I noticed now that I'm writing it out.

Morning: Rice/Millet cereal with Ginger Zing granola, Grape nuts, bits of pear and craisins thrown in, in no sugar Almond Milk
Snack: did I have one? don't remember I had a camomile tea
Lunch: Burritos; black beans, salsa, corn, cucumber, red pepper, avocado, cumin, in a whole wheat wrap.
Snack: Whole wheat wrap and peanut butter and jelly
Dinner: Protein bar and a few nuts
Snack: apple and whole wheat wrap and peanut butter and jelly

Tomorrow I'll stick to my diet plan better.
