2017K in 2017 Week 13

So I had a productive weekend for Kms, we did a nice hike on Saturday then on Sunday I had a 5K trail race so a bit sore today.  I lost my fitbit and my backup one has been through the wash a couple times (not by me I must note)  so I will have to track my Kms in other ways. I have been using the Strava app a lot but I am low on cellular data for a couple more days so I can’t use it. I am debating buying a leaf tracker but I need to do some research first to see that I pick the best tracker for myself. I don’t like to wear watches so that limits it somewhat.

We left off at 94.5K and I am adding:

March 25 6K Hike
March 26 5K Trail Run
March 27 3.5K walk to work from Jason’s then home

New total so far: 109K


2017K in 2017 Week 12

I am still working on my Kms over here although slow to update for various reasons. My morning walk tracker didn’t work so I had to come on here or I would lose track of my Kms. It has been a month so I suppose it is a good time to check in.

In addition to the walking I will be logging I have done a bit of gym workouts as well. I am kicking things up a notch with some Zumba and Yoga classes. This weekend is my 2nd 5K race and I am excited about it as it is a trail run at Thetis lake and I have hiked there a dozen or more times so I am very familiar with the terrain.

On to the Kms. I ended off with 71K on Feb 20

Feb 21 3K to and from work
Feb 21 2.5K to bf house
Feb 22 2K to work from bf place
March 3 1.5K to work
March 12 2K to work from bf place
March 14 1.5K to work
March 16 3K to and from work
March 20 3K to and from work
March 21 2K to work from bf place
March 22 3K to and from work

New total: 94.5K

So I am behing on my goal, right now if I want to make 2017K I need to do 214K a month for the rest of the year. I am selling my car so more walking is forthcoming and hiking season is so close (I know you can hike anytime but I will be out more when things are nicer and the sunset is later) and I will be logging lots of K soon with more half marathon training.

Either way, I am walking more and that is all that matters.

2017K in 2017 Week 8

I think it would be week 8, I have been negligent in posting but mostly have been keeping up on my walking and have been going to the gym and went ice skating too (but I am only counting walks, hikes and runs for my Kms)

So my previous total was 41.5K and since Jan 25 I will add:

Jan 26 – Walk to work 1.5K
Jan 30 – Walk to and from work 3K
Feb 1 – Walk to and from work 3K
Then I hit a lull as I am going through some health issues but am on the mend now
Feb 13 – Walked to the gym (then worked out too!) 4K
Feb 14 – Walk to and from work 3K (then went ice skating)
Feb 15  – Walk to and from work 3K
Feb 16 – Was sick and slept most of the day but got up and did a 5K walk
Feb 17 – Walk to and from work 4K (walked to boyfriend’s house after work so it was further)
Went to the gym on the weekend but no walks 😦
Feb 20 – Walk to and from work 3K

New total: 71K

At this pace I will need to average 44.2K per week to make my goal, however once the weather cheers up I will start hiking again which will add a lot of Kms.

2017K in 2017 Week 3

So I am still working on it but last weekend I was pretty lazy. I wasn’t feeling very well so I took a bit of relax time but I have been back walking to work the past 3 days so all that counts.

Adding in the rest of last week and the start of this week:

Jan 20 walk to and from work 3K
Jan 23 walk to and from work 3K
Jan 24 walk to and from work 3K
Jan 25 walk to and from work 3K

New total: 41.5K

2017K in 2017 week 2

So I am feeling pretty good about this, probably I am a bit behind on my kilometers but as the year goes on and the weather gets warmer I will be logging more. So far last week I walked to work 4 out of 5 days (on Wednesday I had plans right after work so had to drive) went ice skating (which doesn’t count to Kms but still is good) went for a walk with my boyfriend on Saturday and did a 5K race on Sunday.


Total up to Jan 12 – 14.5K

Jan 13 – walk to and from work 3K
Jan 14  – 2K walk by the ocean
Jan 15 – 7K (5K run/walk and then 2K to and from the car)
Jan 17 – walk to and from work 3K

Total – 29.5K

Week 4 – New Month, New Goals!

After last week’s stress and cat drama I had a poor start to the week. I let my emotional eating get the better of me and I made some poor choices. I did turn things around midway through the week however and I am back on track and feeling much better and very excited for February!

Things I did right:

  1. Recognized my self destructive patterns were returning and turned it around
  2. Did a Zumba workout
  3. Made a batch of broccoli salad
  4. Made a healthy lasagna and ate leftovers for lunch
  5. Made a healthy oatmeal bar recipe and snacked on them throughout the week
  6. Cleaned up my apartment and washed several of my blankets
  7. Took the stairs with my laundry basket (it’s huge and weighs about 20 lbs)
  8. Took some time to relax and charge my personal batteries
  9. Used my acupressure mat several times
  10. Stayed in touch with my MFP and Facebook fitness friends

WTF Week 3? Why you have to be so mean?



My week 3 report is delayed as I had a very terrible week. I woke up Sunday night feeling awful and I ended up being sick most of the week. Went back to work on Wednesday but was still feeling weak so decided to go home. Then I noticed my kitty was having symptoms of a urinary blockage (I used to work as a veterinary assistant so knew what I was seeing) and so I ended up spending the rest of the week looking after him. $1200 later he is OK but it really put me through the ringer.
