Reality Check

Last Year I lost over 60lbs and then Yayy!! I gained it all but and I'm sure even more.  Yes, the Yayy was sarcasm. 

While I had vowed not to weigh and measure all the time I also know that I've been depressed, lacking motivation and just feeling blah lately.  One reason I'm going 80% vegetarian.

I also want to start walking again, running if possible and getting that energy back that I had 60+ lbs ago.  I have quite a few fitness, health and eating books on my TBR list and will be sharing some of my favorites with you. I had thought about starting another separate blog but I know I wouldn't have time to maintain another one.

My current goal for the next 8 months (which will be just in time for my next birthday) is to be able to walk 4 miles again in 45 minutes or less, eating more fruits, whole grains, and veggies, and being happier overall

Some of my current health finds:

My favorite magazine
A Fitbit device to track all activity AND sleep  (the latter I really need too)
Its 100$ USD and I think it will work great in conjunction with my heart rate monitor too.  

I may give in and purchase this from London Drugs

Some new workout clothes which is always a great motivator 

Work out Accessory (also on sale at MEC)

19$ at Mountain Equipment Co-op right now
I do need another pair of running shoes but for the life of me can't remember what sort I require so off to The Running room in the near future.

Some favorite sites for workout/athletic clothing (all ship to Canada)


Please note that my goal isn't to get down to a size 7 or even a size 11 but to be more fit and healthy. If that means that I'm healthier at a size 16 or 18 then I'm happy with that.  I know at my age its going to be harder to kick my metabolism in the butt but I'm certainly going to try!! 

Much Love!!

I apologize for not posting up my tight review.  It ended up being a bit more cold that originally predicted and I cheated and wore tall boots with my tights. 

That being said I wasn't cold and I think the fact that they were cable knit helped.  I'm not sure how they would perform in -20 weather but I'm sure I'll be finding out soon.  

I'm still looking out for the perfect pair of plus size winter tights.  I know they have to be out there, somewhere 

Photos soon

Winter Tights Review Sneak Peak

Tomorrow is supposed to be a very cold day in Edmonton, a high of -3 with a child chill of -6. So I'll get a chance to get a good review of these Cable Knit tights I got from One Stop Shop
Sorry for the crappy picture but you can view the tights here

I have a pair in black and in charcoal.   I also ordered up a size based on reviews. I briefly wore a pair yesterday and I'm glad to say that I'm happy I did order up.   Shipping was fast though not cheap so next time I'll probably try and get a group order together. I did have tracking and the shipping and duties/handling were charged up front so no surprises. 

Review and Photos tomorrow!
