Sorry I've been so delayed in responding, but you know life "it's fast, it's furious." Thanks for the admiring my dedication, it's been a challenge lately as my weight loss has really slowed. I'm reminding myself that it's slow because I'm so close to my goal and that's a good thing. That and focusing on the fact that despite the scale, it's the healthy habits I'm trying to make routine. Two miles is awesome! There isn't much more to going 3; pretty soon we'll be doing a 5K together. I've been relying on my elliptical more and more since it's still dark when I wake up. I sneak in a run after work occasionally if Zak or Corey are around to keep and eye on Ty. I completed the C25K program so have been running 3 miles each time. Now I'm starting the program over only increasing speed with each interval. Keeps it interesting.
It was an adjustment to getting up in the dark again, but we've officially transitioned back to school. Ty's actually doing quite well. He still has issues listening to his teachers, but his teachers and counselors have noticed he is trying hard to control behaviors and has been showing improvement. Zak passed his written driver's exam and officially has his learners permit. He's taking behind the wheel right now and is looking forward to getting his farm permit. Scary thoughts....
I think Corey's really wishing he wouldn't have agreed to this, but he also knows quitting would be a good thing. He is actually signed up for the MN Quit Cash contest where you quit smoking for the month of October and could win up $5,000. Chances are slim of winning, but he does like competition. Since the contest still allows aids, he's going to talk to the doctor about some of his options. So hopefully, he's on his way. 2225 days ago
Hola! How was your trip? I'm sure it was great! I've never been to Vegas, but it's on my list of places I'd like to visit. Corey and I are going to Washington in a couple weeks to spend sometime with Ryan and Jen. We are driving out there with Larry & Helen, but going sans kids. I'm not looking forward to the drive, but still looking forward to the get-away. If you know of any things that we should make sure to see when there, let me know. 2311 days ago
