Monday Madness!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 17, 2008

Happy Monday everyone! lol…I never say Happy Monday so I figured that I would try to start off the week on a more cheery note!

My workout this morning was a great way to start the day! Although, I somehow clicked the wrong thing on my HRM and I restarted my workout when I switched from the treadmill to the elliptical. So I am not sure about stats, but maybe they are hidden in there somewhere? I will have to check the manual tonight!

My workout:

  • 2 mins. warm-up on treadmill, 4.0 mph, incline 5
  • 25 mins running at 6.0 mph, incline 5
  • 3 mins. walking, 4.0 mph, incline 5
  • 10 mins. Elliptical, incline 14, resistance 9
  • 24 flights of stairs

I am sad to report that I got a blister on my heel from my sneakers! I don’t know what to do because my right foot is a bit smaller than my left foot, so my right foot slides around a bit more. This is always why I get blisters on my right foot! I have NO problems with my left foot in terms of my new sneakers. Should I put an insert into my right shoe only? Any tips?

I couldn’t go see my podiatrist the other day because I was too busy at work and had to cancel my appointment! It doesn’t help that his last appointment is at 4:15pm! What the heck!


I thought it would be fun to show you all MY gym, lunch, and work bags!

My lunch bag- Bought this at our Loblaws grocery store for $5 bucks!


Yes I do manage to zip it closed every day! haha


Tupperware is bulky, but I like to think I am helping the environment by packing a wasteless lunch. Nothing I eat for lunch is in a package. Not bad!

My work bag– I wish I had that Wolf Blass wine at work! hahah


It’s a Lululemon bag :D I got it a few years ago as a present from my mom.

My Gap Gym Bag: I bought this on sale about 7 years ago for $5! lol. It ain’t pretty but it does the trick!


So there you have it- the 3 bags I use each and everyday!


Question to everyone: What are your long and short term goals?

My short terms goals:

  • Improve speed and endurance with running (follow half marathon training)
  • Continue to do resistance exercises at least 3 times a week
  • Keep improving Oh She Glows (do more videos, create new pages, etc)
  • Decide what home renos Eric and I will do in our new house, take steps to implement them
  • Finish packing and move at end of the month
  • Start and finish Christmas shopping, start and finish wedding albums
  • Start Charity on blog

Long Term Goals:

  • Run a half-Marathon in the Missassauga Marathon in May ’09
  • Give back to the community through charity organization

See you this afternoon for my second Fitness video post!!! :D Tonight will be more FAQ’s!

I just went to the podiatrist a few weeks ago and I have an over pronation problem and have to get orthotics as well. Never even heard of it until then and here you have the same problem.
I am not a runner so I don’t know if this would work but the few times that I have gone hiking I have worn a thin pair of socks and an additional thicker pair of socks on top so my feet slide in the sock and not in my hiking boots. Maybe that will work if you do it for your smaller foot only.
