I apologize

Thursday, September 11, 2014

I have been so busy lately that I have had to prioritize and one of the things put on the back burner has been blogging. I have been focusing on getting 21000 steps daily this week to be increased to 22000 next week. My feet are killing me, but I just have to learn to deal with that. I use my rebounder quite a bit because it is easy on my feet.

My Fitbit died yesterday, but it was revived. I was near panic! Even with my BodyMedia backup, I knew how many steps I had, but I have some challenges that require the Fitbit.

I have been trying to spend more family time, because if we are too busy for family, we are too busy.

I am attempting to carve more prayer time into my life. I pray a lot. Continuously, But I do not have any dedicated prayer time, and I feel like I should start.

So prioritizing, this is what I came up with.

1) My Poundage Plan. Plan my meals and make sure that I get my steps in, challenging myself to get more each week.

2) My husband. He needs "wifey" time. I need to do my part in setting time aside for us.

3) My kids. Molly, though 24, still needs me. Sarah, lives 2600 miles away, but we need phone time.

4) My house. Now, that is fairly easy when dh is gone. He is such a slob! It is also part of my exercise routine for the weekend and gives me PLENTY of steps!

5) Everything else. Work/Spark/Facebook/Games . This is my "me" time and much of it can be done while walking on the elliptical, in place or on the rebounder. Typing though, like in blogging, is difficult when walking!

So that is where I have been! I check in often, but don't always have a chance to blog. Know that I am watching you!

    That is quite the busy schedule! Sometimes it can feel like there's not enough hours in a day. But it looks like you have your priorities in check!

    It was a good idea to write this down, so that you can understand what's important. I've been meaning to do that, too. I wake up thinking that I should write a list such as the one you've made. For the longest time, I've wanted to give my house a deep cleaning, but the job seems so overwhelming that I put it off and put it off. Probably, if I actually wrote it down as a priority, it would be more likely to get done. And, as you say, family is so important, too. I tend to want ME time more than FAMILY time, after so many, many years of raising children and supporting my husband's career, but you're right that we need to set aside special time for them. You sound very busy. I hope it all goes smoothly!

Winding down

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I worked almost 24 hours on the weekend, so I took today and tomorrow off. Dh has been whining about not seeing me enough. *insert eyeroll here* I am so looking forward to his hunting trip! I plan on heading down to Grants Pass to meet with my friend Cheryl to do some Zumba at the Y. I am also heading up to Eugene to meet with a friend, Tina, to do some walking.

Molly and I plan on walking up to a "local" mountain for a picnic and to go shooting. It is 10 miles away, so we will take the cars up and leave one with our picnic lunch, then drive the other one home, then walk back. We also plan on a walk to a favorite diner for brunch one day. It is 7.5 miles each way. Not having to worry about Rich sitting at home and 'missing me' frees me up. This is my vacation, too!

In the past I would be planning what I would eat, not what I would DO! What a change!

For now, I sleep. I actually slept 8 hours last night and plan the same tonight!

Good night all!

    Working 24 hours on the weekend you definitely deserve some time off! That's awesome you're meeting up with your girlfriend Cheryl to do Zumba and heading up to Eugene to meet with Tina to do some walking! I hope you and Molly have a wonderful walk and picnic! Have an awesome day!

    My favorite part of this blog is when you say you used to just plan what to eat and now you plan what to DO. That must feel really good! Have fun and enjoy your freedom!

Back in the swing

Monday, September 01, 2014

Last week I made my 15,000 step goal daily with 2 days over 20,000. This month I am shooting for 20,000 daily.

Today dear daughter Molly organized a delicious picnic with some activity planned. We tossed a ball around outside then we all went for a walk. She and I took 3 walks today.

It is another busy week with an event planned for next Sunday for work. I think I will take off the following Friday as a comp day because on the 13th Molly and I are doing a mud run. mudfactor.com/ I can hardly wait. I think. This is very much out of my comfort zone!

Will try to check in tomorrow, but this is my busy time at work. Between that and getting hubby ready to head east for a few weeks, I am really crazy!

Have a nice evening!

Oktoberfest in August

Friday, August 29, 2014

Last year the Oktoberfest celebration that I worked for my Prostate cancer awareness program was LITERALLY blown away (as in everybody's tents were blown into the creek), so they moved the date up to this weekend.

I decided to go with the theme "Tackle Prostate Cancer" this year and am very pleased with how it turned out. The weather is gorgeous! Here is my display for this year.



Off to walk now and get some steps in!
