good intentions

Friday, December 07, 2012

I woke up with the best of intentions.. Oh I should back up! I did my 10 minutes before bed last night.

My Iphone derailed me yesterday. I wanted to put a song on it.. One crumby song! Okay not crumby but a happy song, but alas the technology escapes me. The difference in apple vs my Microsoft wired brain? not sure.. but I'll get it figured out. however, enough time wasted on that yesterday.

So this morning, I got up before 4, made coffee.. in no mood for the treadmill yet, so I shopped online for Christmas (-: 4:45am! what when did that happen?! Got work done.. its 6am.. Okay I'm going to get on the treadmill I still have 30 - 45 minutes before I have to get the kids up.

See this is the problem, I work from home... so anything I want/need to do needs to happen before after school happens, only so many hours in ones day.

So I hop on the treadmill and I think.. I'll call Verizon while I'm on here and they can help me figure out this Itunes mess. NO NO NO.. i have to get off the treadmill and go to the computer for this.. of course I do. Well I'm no further on this, going to have to call Apple. UGH.. More time wasted and only 3 minutes on the treadmill.

Today, after I pick up the kids from school I have to go into the office. Then I was thinking I'd make a pickup at Staples across town, because I live in the country and nothing is close. At 6:00 I'm supposed to decorate at the school... so I'm not sure if I'm going to pick up my Staples tonight. That may have to wait until tomorrow evening.

I'll have to amend my bog later. Yesterday ended up nicely so today will too!

I am blessed!!! Happy Friday!!!

Busy busy day

Thursday, December 06, 2012

So today was busy, but a good busy. I tracked. I did not exercise. I got much work done today!!! woohoo!! It was a productive day.

I might do my 10 minutes before bed.. but I'm planning on getting on the treadmill first thing in the morning and trying to be a morning exerciser. I may just need to start doing that, getting up early and exercising first thing even if it is only 10 minutes.

I did get 32 minutes in on my treadmill yesterday... I totally cheated and signed the kids out 10 minutes early. It is the point in the day when it is not counted against them, and we came home. I fixed them some vittles and said, Mommy's getting on the treadmill before we leave for dance! and I did! And yesterday was another fabulous day by the way!! Oh I'm getting sparked just blogging about it! I tracked too many calories yesterday, but on the scale this morning I was down? go figure. That is probably what the 10 minutes the day before did for me.. Oh, now I know I'll do that before turning in. LOL.

Then 3 miles on the treadmill in the morning!!

Good night Sparkers!!!

1) Fantastic understanding husband who made me chicken and didn't complain when they all had red meat.
2) Terrific kids with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads... they are still not asleep.
3) God being with me, even when I get side tracked.

10 minute Abs

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I'm not sure how effective it was.. as my day slipped away and time kept passing, kids homework.. take boy to scouts... husband is home... make dinner... oh yeah a little more work to be done today still.... when am I going to do this 10 minutes I committed myself to??

My husband agrees to start dinner for me so I can get to work. I thank him. I go to work, later he pops in and says do you want to come out or should I bring you a taco. Well I was going to make myself a salad, but he fixed the tacos... so I came out and ate a taco.. still no 10 minutes.. I got up from the table and I said, I'll be back in 10 minutes. it was just about the last thing I did yesterday but I did it!

I think my sweet spot is right after the kids and I get home from school. I'll have to let a few things go.... I usually head straight into the kitchen and do the days dishes and check homework and start dinner... sometimes I eat snack with them, but they can eat their snack by themselves. I can do dishes after my workout and start dinner then.. That won't work today.. today we have dance and have to leave at 4, so I will have to run on my treadmill later in the evening... but tomorrow right after school might just be the ticket. I'm done coaching until next fall which ate up my Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, so I'm happy to have them back (-:

So many great things to tell you! My sister in law got a new job in the Chaplin's office at the hospital she works for. That is a major praise! I've been praying for her, she is a fairly young Christian and God is moving in a mighty way in her life. Its just amazing!!!

I went to college to take a placement test. Turns out I did not have to take the test, because I already have some college, thanks mom for making me go right out of high school even though I didn't have a clue what I wanted to be when I grow up. So I turned in my transcripts, which I wanted to do myself anyways.. and now I have an appointment with an adviser in 2 weeks!!! I am going to be a physical therapist assistant (when I grow up.. LOL). My kids are in school and I work full time, so we'll see how long this takes and how it all shakes out. I'm super excited! This may be a topic for another blog but I'm so happy and had to share. I'll know more in 2 weeks!

Thanks for all of your support!

Each day is a new day!
A husband who is willing to make dinner from time to time (-:
2 terrific kids (-:
Great supportive friends.
God has a plan for my life!

    Wow, sounds like a busy life - or that you are aware of many things happening!

What I love in the 10 minute rule that it keeps my habit alive - it never gets down to zero. There's always this little left that I can build on the next day, or after, if its a troubled time.

And happy for the many great things happening in your life! :-)
I noticed, somehow since I live a healthy life, my life in general is happier!

I did it!

Monday, December 03, 2012

I did it! for the first time in more than a week I got on my treadmill, I logged fitness minutes! I'm getting back on that wagon.

Tomorrow, I'm going to do one of these crazy 10 minute spark videos!

All last week, part of me wanted to do a 10 minute video, and another part of me would say, that's not enough.. so I'd have this argument with myself and then do nothing instead.. and since I was feeling weak from the flu, I let the me that didn't want to exercise win. Silly right?! well something is better than nothing, and if I can get some minutes in every day the I want to.

See you tomorrow nighty night.
