4W2F: Stay Active

28 Jun

It’s hump day! Halfway through the work week of a long weekend…

Today, Danielle & I ran 8K! Running is always a great way to start the day, and it’s nice to do it in the early morning especially since it gets hot even at 7AM.

I was sooo hungry after our run, I ate few granola bars… 5 of them actually. I was STARVING today! That’s one thing I have learned, the more you workout, the more you eat! It is important to be educated about that type of thing, you don’t want to deprive yourself. I know I am not perfect 100% of the time in terms of eating the right amount of certain things (protein, veggies, fruits), but I have certainly come a long way with what I know. I always eat before a workout – if you don’t, you will burn muscle – and after a workout.

Dinner: scrambled eggs with peppers & mushroom (use some Pam in the pan), corn & bean salad, a tomato & some cheese

After dinner, I spent some time with my girlfriends: Kelsey, Kim & Danielle. We opted for an activity that was a little bit active, which was nice! You don’t always have to go to dinner or watch a movie – try and choose something that gets you moving! We took our dogs to Beavermead to let them play in the lake & we obviously walked around. We made a stop for ice cream before the park – so delicious! I got a small ice cream instead of my regular large… I am a sucker for Kawartha Dairy.

My favourite from Kawartha Dairy… Moose Tracks!

Winnie, Fozzie & Zevi playing close to shore. See that little black dot WAY in the distance? That’s Coors…. We thought we were going to be going for a swim to get him back!

Kels with her new pup Zevi (so cute!), Kim adopted Fozzie for the night, me with Winnie & Danielle (behind the camera) walking Coors.

I got home and did my 20 burpees. Are you keeping up with the burpee challenge? Add another 5 tomorrow! The dogs were dead tired & really smelly. Apparently I was tired, too because I fell asleep before 930.

I just wanted to go back to the whole “staying active” thing. Like I said, when you’re getting together with friends, suggest something that gets you up & out of the house. You don’t have to go to the movies, stay in or go out to dinner. I am lucky to have friends with dogs, so it was a lot of fun to hit the park with them!

Surround yourself with people who have similar goals & interests – like walking, working out, running & puppies! That makes it a lot easier to stay active. I actually met Kelsey & Danielle through bootcamp & we’ve become really good friends. It’s especially easy to get out & do something when the weather is so nice. Most importantly, all of my friends have FUN when we are active.

work it!
