Taking a windy walk......

Monday, January 23, 2012

After dinner this evening my son and I took a power walk around town. It made me feel good even though the wind was howling. I looked at it this way, it was harder when walking into the wind so it was better for me. My son did the "lets challenge mom run" on me several times. The last time was on the big hill at the end of our walk. Boy was that ever exhillarating!!! Looking forward to another walk tomorrow! emoticon

Gotta case of the "GRRRRRRUMPYS"

Friday, January 20, 2012

I've hit that part of winter that turns me into a BEAR!!! I want warm weather! I want sunshine! I WANT TO GO FISHING!!!! I know I want alot huh? Well its snowing like crazy out. The expected snow fall for today has went from 3-5 inches to 5-7 inches. I'm glad that I have alternatives to my daily walk outdoors. Now I need a boost to get off this couch and GIT-R-DONE! I guess there is no time like the present! Up and at em!

  


SNOW DAY!!

Friday, January 20, 2012

Yes it snowed! And more is on the way! This morning I got the eliptical out at 7 :15 am and started going at it! I figure if I leave it sitting in the way I will have to use it. Also took the opportunity to go grocery shopping without my hubby the junk food junkie. I purchased only healthy food for the kids and I since he is not home to eat with us usually. Lots of fruit and vegetables! Also chicken and fish. I am trying new recipes and finding that not only do I like them but so do my kids. Anyhow the forecast is calling for alot more snow this evening, so it will be exercising to "Just Dance" on the wii and videos of Leslie Sansone and the Eliptical :)

Long time no post...lol

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Well I am back! This year , well actually 12/25/11, I decided to give myself a Christmas present. To find myself again. What better way to do this then get healthy! On Christmas evening I started power walking again. This is one of the best ways to de-stress for me. Now that our Ohio weather has turned frigid I also have my eliptical to fill in when I cant get out doors. Anyhow Ihaven't missed but 3 days of walking due to illness and weather. My children also are playing a big part in the encouragement department...They take turns walking with me each evening. I am happy to have them push me! Some evenings my oldest will throw in a little bit of jogging now and then. And they all push me close to the middle of the walk because there is part of the sidewalk with a name written in it....we race to it to see who gets "TOM"...thats the name.....LOL We always get close and then one of use takes off running ahead of the one who forgot. I usually get to laughing so hard that they catch on and beat me to it. Anyway I am looking for to finding myself and getting healthier then ever! ROCK ON! emoticon emoticon

Busy Day..and still got a walk in!

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

Wow what an awesome day! My daughter had a beautiful baby boy this afternoon! WOOOHOOO! I have my grandaughter staying with us while she is in the hospital. My 4 children that are still at home are young and also very thrilled about their nephew. So while daddy is at work I have my hands full with the children and grandaughter, I got dinner made after shopping and the house work done....and I still managed to get a small workout in! Not much but I did it plus was at the hospital most of the day. I can't believe the house is quiet finally. Time for rest now because I am exhausted in the best way!
