another great day

Sunday, January 29, 2012

It's been almost a whole week of my new found control over my eating and exercise. Yeah me.
I'm down about one pound, not huge but its a start. I worked out 4 days this week, hoping to get in 6 next week. I tried doing it with just the two days I do with the personal trainer each week, just doesn't work to lose weight. It takes both. Hope everyone is doing great. I'm using spark people recipes as well as hungry girl , skinnymom.com and the Biggest Loser recipe books.
My husband is the minister this morning at church and he's so nervous. The real pastor has been sick and they couldn't find a substitute. All will be well as long as they cut the microphone when he starts to sing a hymn. Oh not good....

Iowa's weather has really been nice this year. THere is no snow on the ground, hard to believe. I just got the boot off my foot this past weekend. Yeah! that was a long 6 weeks. Actually a long fall and winter so far. I developed tendonitis in August as I was training for a half marathon. I went to physical therapy, then chiropractor, then they finally put me in a boot. I now have a terrible cold so still can't do very much. Now of course, I've gained at least ten pounds due to my inactivity. I know whine whine whine! Ok I"m done. Now I need to get my life back on track, finish physical therapy and get back to running and working out, I really miss it. Hope everyone is having better luck than I have.
Oh I do have good news, my daughter in law had a baby October 20, 2011(Boedi William) and my daughter and her husband is due July 12th, so excited!!


Rainy Iowa Day

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Hello all,
I've been gone from SP for quite awhile. Summer has come and gone and fall is almost over too. I have not been able to run since the middle of August. I have tendonitis in my left ankle. It is taking forever to heal!! Very down right now and discouraged. I"ve tried physical therapy, chiropractic help, as well as a sports doctor. It is just taking a very long time to heal. If I try to walk, not run, it gets sore. So I do just the minimum that I have to in a normal day. Can no longer go out with my friends to walk in the mornings. Yes I"ve gained weight. Love to eat, but not getting the exercie in that I use to. I still have my personal trainer twice a week though.
Hope you all are having better luck

well summer is almost over for me. I've got about 2 and a half weeks until school starts again. It always goes by so quickly. Last week was our county fair. I always work the main gate taking tickets. It's fun to watch the people come in. Very interesting. Last Sunday I went to Galena, IL with my daughter for a couple of days. we had a nice trip.
Thursday is my 4th wedding anniversary. Not sure what we are going to do yet.
Iowa has been so hot the last couple of weeks.
Still working out a lot. Yesterday ran 7 and a half miles, 4 and a half of those were with my daughter in galena. We came home and did 3 more miles at bootcamp last night. This morning I ran and walked 5 miles with friensds.
I'm training for a half marathon that is the end of August.


Good morning from Rainy Iowa

Looks like a rainy day here today. Yesterday and the day before were very nice. This is my 3rd day of summer break from school. First day I cleaned, second day I went to the AAA office and organized a trip to Miami Florida with my youngest son. We are going to try to find an apartment for him for August when he leaves for law school. He will start at St THomas Law School. Tomorrow I am going to help my daughter with a renovation project in her livingroom. Ran 3 miles and walked a mile this morning. Tomorrow will be a long run day, probably 6 or 7 miles. Hoping for a better eating day today. I need it
