The week ahead – Monday June 9

So I keep falling off the wagon as it were. But I guess if it were easy, no one would be overweight and every one would be fit. And I suppose the important part is picking myself up, dusting myself off and starting again.

So here we are. Here we go again. Back in the saddle again… how many cheesy musical references do you think I can make? Hmmm

I weighed myself this morning. This morning’s weight is X. No, I’m not going to post it out there for everyone to see. Today’s weight is X. I didn’t take any pictures this morning but I will tonight and will update this post then.

[pictures to be posted here I promise!]

So I’m definitely back on keto – too much beer and junk over the last little while. We have a non-keto day planned for June 21, so 12 days of keto, 1 day off-keto. Then on June 22, I fly to PEI for a week. I’ll do my best there to stay on keto but it’ll be a bit harder because I won’t be home. I’ll be sure to log and do what I can though to stay on track.

And here’s the plan for the upcoming week, health wise:

Monday – rest after yesterday’s 5k and a crappy night’s sleep; depending on how I’m feeling I’ll try and go for a short run tonight

Tuesday – I’m in net for a rec soccer game at 8 pm. Not enough of a workout for me to count it as cardio and if I had gotten something done on Monday I’d treat Tuesday as a rest day but Monday was a rest so I’ll get up early to run on Tuesday.

Wednesday or Thursday – one of these days I’ll go spinning after work; the other day I’ll go for a short run in the morning.

Friday – going to try for a short run (30-45 minutes) in the morning and a 30 minute swim at lunch.

Saturday – Q has soccer on Saturdays now so between that and the market, Saturday is spoken for. Toby also has choir on Saturday mornings so hopefully I can go for a run in the afternoon if it’s not too hot outside.

Sunday – long run day. I’ll be happy with an hour or so, and will go up to an hour and a half.

I’ve also got to figure out a training plan for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon – I’m running the half. Most plans I’ve found are done in miles so I need some time to convert it to kms and timing etc. I want to start the Monday after I get back from PEI which would be 16 weeks out from the half. A long cycle to be sure but, as is painfully obvious to all, consistency isn’t one of my strong suits so I’d like the ability to do a couple of the early weeks more than once to build up that consistency.

Other health goals for the week:

  • Log everything consumed every day on my fitness pal.
  • No alcohol till Friday.
  • On May 26 I counted that there were 219 days left in the year. I want to be active for at least 80% of them – so 175 days from May 26. I’ve managed 9 of 15 since then. And I’m waffling on whether to get a run in tonight once Toby starts getting Q ready for bed. I wonder if there’s a counter I can find to help keep track?
