We love to make cupcakes!
is darn tired. We had a change in our plans yesterday and the granddaughter came home from work with me and stayed with us until early this afternoon. She makes my heart happy!
Did the Tread the Trail for Epilepsy walk today.
My reasons to get healthy!
Grandma (me) and my newest granddaughter.
A favorite place to walk.
Love walking on days like this!
Newest reason to get healthy!
Woohoo, might not be fast but I did it! Was going for 3.5 miles.
The $$$ I dont spend on fast food I spend on concerts. Let me tell you, you can get a heck of a workout in if you want to be at the front on the floor! Ashes to New, In This Moment, Papa Roach and Five Finger Death Punch. Awesome concert.
What a gorgeous day for a walk!
Beautiful scenery on my drive home from work. Cant wait until the leaves really start changing color.
I was only going to do 30 minutes but it was such a beautiful day!
Such a pretty place. I love walking here.
Activities before the 5K glow run/walk. It was so much fun to do it with me kids and grandkids.
Forgot to post this last night. Finished with the 5k. Myself, daughter and niece. Was great doing this with family!
First time at the gym in probably 6 months, if not longer.
Im ready for bed! 3rd shift is kicking my hinny!
The view from the parking lot at work. Wish the picture did the view justice!
After bring married for over 25 years I finally got my wish to have a family picture taken. Theses are my 7 reasons to get healthy!
Wasn't going to walk today but it is such a beautiful fall day!
Have been a little off my game lately. This walk helped so much!
The colors are amazing. Loved my walk tonight!
Late start, short walk but I did it!
I need to remember this. Sometimes things dont go the way we planned, but we still are breathing!
Its a whole lotta coffee kind of day!
Drove 4 1/2 hours to see this cutie be baptized. Now the 4 1/2 hour home! Uggghhh
Drove 4 1/2 hours to see this cutie be baptized. Now the 4 1/2 hour drive home! Uggghhh
I just had to share. I can't quit laughing.
I have a gym membership but I would rather walk outside, but after today I may have to start using my membership since it is supposed to get colder and start raining.
Some day I will conquer you, you evil thing!
I love this exercise for some weird reason!
I got to take the granddaughter to school and of course had to take a selfie! LOL
I stink, but feel great!
Babies first Halloween!
One of our decorations.
She loves selfies!
Promise this is the last Halloween pic I post until next year, but had to show the granddaughters costume. She freaked out a few people with that crazy painted mouth. The rest are ppl that helped us with the haunted garage.
The leaves are really falling. Was a damp and windy walk this morning, but I did it. Haven't been to kind to myself lately and needed to get back on track.
6:27 a.m. finally done with work and heading to the gym
After 12 hours on a fork truck Im ready for the gym!
Time at gym was hot!
These socks are so soft. Only wear them on weekends and not when I walk, too slippery....lol
I wear purple for my Granddaughter. We need a cure!
Got a phone call at work tonight that my Granddaughter had a seizure. Nothing worse than knowing that there isnt a darn thing you can do to make her better except fight for a cure.
Granddaughter is home and doing well! Worked another 12 hour shift. Was super tired bit managed 30 minutes at the gym.
Finally made it to the gym. Tonight at work we are having a potluck..... Ughh, hate it we have them. If you don't eat feelings get hurt, if I eat i blew all the work way out of the water......
Worked a 12 but made it to the gym for 30 minutes.
60 minutes on treadmill. Workout done!
Oldest granddaughter had to have surgery yesterday. Was pretty rough on her little body so I spent the night with her and her Mommy at their house. Doing much better this morning.
And workout completed!
Work out done......60 minutes treadmill and a little strength training.
Thirty minutes on elliptical. Wasn't going to go but glad I did!
Made it to the gym this morning...workout done!
Trying to get some volunteer work done for an epilepsy awareness event, but this train.....
Work out finished... Woohoo. That feels good!!!
I had to share
November is epilepsy awareness month, so I have trying yo wear purple as much as possible. My shirt today. I wear purple in honor of my granddaughter and the many wonderful people I have met trying to find a cure for this condition.
Sort of fitting after yesterday..... LOL
Quick workout, lots later than normal, feels kind of strange.
A short work out today. The weather is getting bad, and I'm a nervous driver on ice.....the 30 minute drive home takes forever!
Just got exciting news! Going to be Grandma again! Need to keep working on becoming healthy!!!!
Finally got my behind to the fitness center. Wasn't very long but better than what I have been doing!
Granddaughter had a Christmas concert tonight so I went to the gym afterwards instead of driving back home than back for work. Longest workout in a long time!
Granddaughters Christmas program. I didnt go to the gym today because I had to work overtime. I know it seems like an excuse but I was just to tired and havent gotten good sleep all week.
Getting ready for company Christmas party. Taking my Mom as my guest.
Very fitting today!
What a dreary and wet past few days. Going to go to the gym after work this morning, will see if the pain in my legs causes more cramping. Wish me luck!
What to do when you have to go in to work for an hour? Hit the gym at 11:30 p.m Been a while since I have been here.
This year I am hoping this does not happen! I need to keep moving away from the temptation of the goodie table!
I was not going to make any candy this year, but the family rebelled. I am only make a few of their favs!
Just wanted to share.
The view of our small tree from the front yard.
To funny, my children act like we are this way with the granddaughters. I disagree, we do give them time, patience, understanding, comfort and love. We do let them do things that we didnt let our kids do when they were little, but I think its because as grandparents we realize how fast time really does go and that picking up all the crayons isnt always what is important.
We are having our family Christmas tonight. Am I ready, nope. My house is small and there will be 10 people. Most of the food is prepped, gifts are wrapped and m I st of the dusting is finished. Have a great day fellow PEPs!
Look what I found under the Christmas tree!
Finally, time for the gym! Woohoo
Worst snow storm of the year and we get a phone call that my Mom has had a heart attack. Thank goodness my son was home to drive me what would normally be a 45 minute drive to the hospital. She is testing mow but tomorrow morning will be moving her to a better/larger hospital for more tests and possible surgery. My Dad is with her and my son and i are in a family room. Please say a prayer for her!
Still waiting for answers, prayers still needed!
I am trying to remember this! Sometimes just holding a door for someone, smiling at a stranger, or even a hello can change someone's day.
Thank you all for the kind words and your thoughts and prayers. My Mom is coming home today. Was so worried about both my parents. My Dad wasnt taking his meds and his levels got low while at the hospital.
Had to share!
Been a rough few weeks! Hopefully heading in the right direction soon!
Granddaughter is spending the night. Made cupcakes and now playing with play-doh.
I really like this!
Im gonna feel this when I get up!
Glamour shot its not, but I'm working on a better me! 2 days in a row WootWoot!
This is a better version of ice cream that I want to try. Made it to the gym again today for a short workout. Son needed to use my car so I had to leave early.
4 days in a row! Being pretty much inactive for almost a month is really biting me hard!
No workout today. Had to take my son for oral surgery this morning. Drinking my water while waiting though.
This exists simply to taunt me! I will defeat you some day! Workout finished for the day!
I agree with this 100 percent!
From this morning. I needed to do this after the night we all had at work!
Workout finished! It was short, but I'm a sweaty mess.
I did it instead of just thinking about it! I haven't been doing very good since December so I consider this a small victory!
Wearing purple today to support and raise awareness for all affected by epilepsy. Today is epilepsy awareness day. Granddaughter had her first seizure when she was only 11 days old.
Newest reason to get healthy! Born June 6th 2016. Proud big sister!
This is my attempt at getting back at it. With 3 grandchildren now I better quit with the excuses and start getting healthy!
My Granddaughter is the reason we do the Tread the Trail for Epilepsy every year! Love her to the moon and back!
Grandson supporting his sister at the Tread the Trail for Epilepsy!
My son and his family supporting their niece at Tread the Trail for Epilepsy!
This little girl has the biggest heart.
Granddaughter lost her first tooth!
Love the fall colors. I actually got out and walked for an hour.
Had all three of the grandchildren over the weekend. I am totally worn out, didn't eat healthy but my heart is over flowing!
I really enjoy walking here
Was such a nice walk. Can't believe it is November.
It was so nice outside I ended up going for another short walk with the youngest granddaughter she loved it
I did it! I keep telling myself I'll go for a walk after work, but I keep finding excuses but today I did it. Was a little cold but so beautiful.
It was a bit frosty this morning, I had a million excuses not to walk, but I did anyway. Go me
My handsome grandson. I just had to share! Love getting snap chats like this!
I really didn't want to walk this morning because it was cold but I'm so glad I did!
Worked 10 pm to 10 am picked up the oldest granddaughter. No walk today because we at tented an epilepsy awareness event. The reason I wear purple!
No walk yesterday but ended up with 16, 294 steps. This girl kept me busy.
Didn't walk yesterday but did manage 15,611 steps. My daughter and son in law took my to see two of my favorite bands in concert as an early birthday present!
Got a late start because I was being grumpy and mad at myself for a 5 pound weight gain.
I noticed on my walk that my favorite tree has been cut down. It had the most beautiful leaves on it in the fall. Made me sad.
Not liking the looks of that sky. Walked 60 minutes, temperature wise it was warm but windy.
Spent the day yesterday with all 3 of the grandkids. Love the difference in their little personalities. No walk but I was worn out by bed time!
Doodle and I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
November is Epilepsy Awareness month. Wearing purple to support my Granddaughter and 3 other special kids I have meant and of course everyone that is affected by epilepsy. Fighting for a cure!!
My Grandson and my Mom. He came to visit after Mom got out of surgery for a total knee replacement yesterday.
The youngest granddaughter did NOT like Santa, even poor Santa looks a bit stunned!
The oldest granddaughter and my grandson liked Santa.
Shoveled snow for 45 minutes, wow I'm worn out!
One and a half hours shoveling snow and it's still snowing. Can't imagine how long it would have taken if my son hadn't used the snow blower before I got home.
I love this picture of my Dad and Grandson taken at our family Christmas last night.
Merry Christmas from our house to yours. May the blessings of the season fill your hearts.
Getting ready to watch some Super Bowl commercials!
Granddaughters go to drink, water. Enjoyed watching all the dance teams show case their talents!
Was a beautiful afternoon. Went went with my daughters family to feed the ducks. Son in law is hiding.
Took the Granddaughter with me on my walk. Guess it wore her out!
So proud of this girl! She may not have done it the conventional way, but that's what made this even more special!
Local Veterans Memorial. Wish I could have gotten the whole thing in the pic
All I wanted to do today was go for a walk, but have a feeling that's not going to happen.
I did manage a walk. The granddaughter and I walked for an hour. Not fast but we enjoyed ourselves, even if it was a bit windy!
Walked farther in less time, but it wasn't nearly as fun without my walking partner. Granddaughter wasn't able to come this time.
Had to walk by myself again. Took a different route.
No walk yesterday since I had to be at work at 2 a.m. but hopefully today I can get one in!
Didn't get a walk in yesterday since we drove almost 4 hours so grandkids could see the dinosaurs. Did get over 7,000 steps though.
Got a walk in today, but no walking buddy. She went shopping with her Mom and Dad.
Got a walk in with my walking buddy! She wasn't feeling it so much tonight. Wanted me to pick up rocks and I found out she is quite the escape artist! Stroller zero, toddler 2 for the win!
No walking buddy tonight. Probably would have been to warm for her.
Haven't been able to get out and walk since I've been working 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the last week, but I did make time to celebrate grandsons first birthday!
So far today. Got a misfit but not sure how to use all the features.
I actually got my walk in. It started pouring rain though and being that is was dark and i couldn't see, glasses, I cut it short.
Got my walk in this morning. What a beautiful time of day. Cool temps, a nice breeze, couldn't ask for better.
My little walking buddy was into walking today, chatted the whole time.
The granddaughter and I attempted a walk. She fell asleep, and it started pouring rain. Had to try to walk slow while trying to wait it out.
Forgot to post my steps from yesterday. I wasn't sure if I would get my 10000 steps in since I went with my daughter and grandchildren. The oldest granddaughter had to have an MRI. While they were doing that the grandson and I walked the hospital. Not sure of the total steps but I did get in my total for the day.
Not the greatest walk, once again rain, and no walking buddy!
My walking buddy was just as chatty as could be on our walk today.
Not the best but got to spend time with my walking buddy!
Got my walk in today. My walking buddy is camping this weekend so I had to go by myself.
Worked overtime yesterday so I didn't get my walk in but just barely made my steps!
Short walk but it sure was warm!
All the time I had today, short bit really warm!
Think it was a little warm tonight. I waited hoping it would cool down a bit, it did was only 85 degrees. I did get my hour in though. Bring on the water!
Have to work 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow so My walking buddy and I did a quick walk. Hard to walk fast when she is now fascinated with picking up rocks. Silly little granddaughter!
No walk today, instead i am going to bed. Working a 12 hour shift again tomorrow. Did get my steps in.
Stressful day at work so I ate really bad today. I wasn't going to walk since I had made such bad food choices. Glad I did now! Wasn't the fastest but I quit pouting about work and got my sweat on. It was a warm walk.
No walk yesterday or today. Worked a 12 hour shift both days. I did manage to get my 10,000 steps both days.
Haven't been able to get much walking in since I've been working lots of weird hours this week, but have managed to get my 10,000 steps in each day.
Another 12 fun filled hours to be spent here. Hope my schedule goes back to close to normal soon.
Woohoo I did it! Finally got a walk in!
Took the little boss with me. Not the fastest but she had fun!
Well there goes for a walk tonight!
We got pretty lucky, mostly leaves and branches. Our poor willow tree will never be the same! Bracing for round 2.
I got a walk! Had to cut it short since I'm watching 2 of the grandkids in a little bit.
It was a hot walk but I did it.
Today's walk. Little boss stayed home because it was to hot and humid for her.
Got to spend sometime with these 2 today at the park. Helped me get my steps in!
Great night for a walk!
Took the little boss for a walk. Was short and slow but got a walk in. She sang the whole time!
Got it done! Not quite an hour but it was all the time I had. Have to finish making food for granddaughters birthday party and her Moms grad party.
Took two of the grandchildren to the fair today. Got my steps in and wore us all out!
My Mom had knee replacement surgery today. Took a short walk while she was in recovery. Saw this in front of the former Old Style brewery.
Was hoping to get a walk in later tonight but it doesn't look good.
Babysat the youngest granddaughter today. She was active, tried to fold laundry, but she wanted to wear it all, even if it wasn't hers! Got my steps in for sure!
Did an Epilepsy Awareness Trail run/walk today. This hill about killed me. The pic doesn't do it justice!
Did an Epilepsy Awareness event today and this hill might not look like much in this picture but I tell you it was a challenge! Wasn't sure i was going to make it to the top, but I did! Woohoo!
Tried to go for a walk with her tonight, didn't work so well. Wouldn't stay in the stroller and screamed like a wild banchee. Only walked for about 25 minutes with probably only 10 minutes actually walking.
Finally got a walk in! Last week was insane, and this week is a big change in schedules. I have been really struggling with eating right and exercise.
Working late so probably not going to get a walk in today.
Had to work late again today and then watch the granddaughter, so no walk. I did get my steps in.
Trying to get to sleep while I listen to my son giving the granddaughter a bath. It makes my heart swell listening to them. Mommy is working different hours so Daddy has to take on more night time responsibilities.
Got a walk in after working overtime today. Now watching the granddaughter play with sidewalk chalk.
Working all weekend again, 12 hour shifts. So no walking for me.
So this happened today! Woohoo!
I walked this today! That was the easy part.
Saw this deer while walking on the Trail. Was another one that ran right out in front of me. Scared the heck out of me!
I think this was my favorite part of the trail. Was beautiful!
Didn't make my steps today but I'm worn out from chasing this wild child!
My Dad is home but still not feeling any better. Can't get his sugar levels regulated.
Tried to take the puppy for a walk. I'm sure it was quite the sight since he isn't really used to walking on a leash very far. Didn't walk very long but I did get my steps in.
Took the Granddaughter for a walk that ended up being more of a walk with stops to talk. We visited with our minister, a lady I used to work with, she's now retired, and my niece, her baby and their new puppy. They were also out walking. I would have to say it was a pretty enjoyable walk even if it wasn't the greatest in steps or speed.
Went for a sorta walk earlier today. Had to chase the granddaughter down after she took off on her little bike. Didn't realize short legs could go that fast but I think she thought is was funny to see "Mama" run. Daddy had to convince her that she needed to turn around and that if she caught me on the way back she could run me over........what!!! That little one is goofy!
Took tomorrow off to spend with the oldest granddaughter. Tonight I got to watch her cheer at a football game. Really not sure what they were doing here!
Spent the day with the oldest granddaughter.
It has been a crazy, stressful few days. Got a call at work that my Dad was being taken to the hospital. I worry about my parents a lot. Dad has type 2 diabetes and has been able to control it with diet but the past 2 months it's been harder than normal. His A1C was almost 9. They want him to start insulin but he drives semi and DOT regulations won't allow insulin dependant people drive, so they are trying a different medication. Would appreciate your prayers that he is able to get thing
What a beautiful day. Can't wait till I'm done with work so I can actually enjoy it. Hoping to get a nice walk in. Hope you are all having a great day!
Took the puppy with me on a walk. This last week was homecoming week for our school district. Toilet papering main street is a big thing, each year they try to outdue the previous year. The pup lived it and would drag it with him. He's not right! LOL
Took the Duck with me yesterday on my walk. Let's just say he was very popular and I didn't get much of a walk. He scored lots of pets, pats and dog treats!
Didn't have to work today so I was able to watch these 2 today. Love being a grandma!
It was a great day for a walk. Love the fall colors. The trees are so pretty!
Worked late today but I took my breaks outside. I just love this view!
I love walking here. Duck was very curious since I don't usually take him here.
No walk yesterday but I spent the afternoon and evening with these two.
5k glow walk/run in the rain!
Did a 5k Glow Run/Walk last night in the rain.
Not the way anyone wants to spend an afternoon. Went to see youngest granddaughter in the hospital. Poor thing had a nasty bacterial infection in her intestinal tract.
This afternoon was a perfect day for walking. The colors are stunning!
Sometimes you just have to stop and check out the flowers. Another great day for a walk.
Wish the picture was better. The colors just aren't coming through. Absolutely stunning in real life.
I love this old building. I see it every time I go for a walk. Wonder what stories it could tell? Was a bit cooler today but still darn nice for mid/late October. Got in about an hour of walking.
Had to work a 12 hour shift today. Did a little walking on break. After 8 hours on a sit down fork truck and 4 on a stand up fork truck I really wish I could have taken a walk after work since I am pretty stiff and sore but it just isn't going to happen. Hope I can squeak in 10,000 steps at least.
Another great day for a walk. Had to go by myself since my walking buddy was taking her nap.
Forecast is calling for..shudder..snow tonight. The way the sky looked and the wind picked up and temps dropped while we were walking I wouldn't be surprised. Walked a little less than an hour. My little walking buddy was getting cold.
My break time view!
