    I'm glad you got your time in. I didn't have any time today either. I'm just now doing my sparking and I'd better hurry before it's past midnight and I'm on a new day!

    Yeah, Chris! I managed to slip in a short exercise break and am glad I was able to make that. I love this challenge - it is a great feeling to know you set aside that little bit of "you" time. Hope you had a nice birthday party for Mom-in-law. It was gorgeous outside.

    Those 10-minute streaks are nice - even when we feel like we don't have much time, we can usually squeeze 10 minutes in there somehow.

Day 19!!

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Today I did 30 minutes on the elliptical. I had the kids cheering me on while I was on it.

Pat's play last night was so funny. He was great as the ghost of Christmas future, dressed as Darth Vader. His best friend was Scrooge, dressed as the Grinch (green tights, green fuzzy hands, and oversized Santa coat & a Santa hat.) The kids did such a great job and had so much fun doing it.

We're trimming our tree today, and I'm doing the Christmas cards. I'm sure there's lots of other Christmas stuff we'll be doing, so I'd better get going.

Day 18 of 10min/day

Friday, December 16, 2011

I just did 10 minutes on the elliptical again today, same reason as yesterday. I know my body just can't handle any more, and I still have chores around the house to catch up.

Tonight we're going to Patrick's play, "A Seussified Christmas Carol." I guess Pat wears a Darth Vader mask when he is the ghost of Christmas future. I'm not supposed to know that, but one of the twins let it slip out. They did the play for the elem. and middle schools on Wednesday, and also had a performance last night. I'm looking forward to this. It will be a lot of fun, and a lot of family is coming up to see him.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

    Good job on another 10 minutes. Have fun at Patrick's play. I'm sitting in the Dr. Office while Kyle gets an xray. He might have a fractured bone in his foot. Hoping not since he just had the fractured wrist in may. emoticon

Day 17

Thursday, December 15, 2011

I only did 10 min on the elliptical today, but that's all I can muster. I worked a busy 8 hour shift at the hospital in my small town, a little bit of running the kids around, and managed the ellptical after that. TOM is excruciating right now, so my next stop is the couch to put my feet up for the night. The kids and Hubby can handle the rest. Thank goodness I always cook in large quantities. We should have enough left overs to get us through dinner. I really hope I feel better tomorrow. It would be a good day to get another full workout in (elliptical, weights, crunches, stretching), but I can't manage if TOM doesn't improve. We'll see how it goes. I know I can manage 10 minutes if all else fails.

Day 16 (Results from and earlier challenge)

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Today is day 16 straight of 10 minutes per day of exercise. I did 30 min on the elliptical, weights, crunches, and stretching.

I don't think I ever mentioned how I did on the "12 Weeks to Fabulous" challenge before Thanksgiving. I found that challenge to be a great motivator. I ended up coming in second place and won $30. I maintained my weight, which is good since I'm still adjusting my thyroid meds. I believe I'm still around 175 since my clothes are fitting the same. As I settle into a good dose on thyroid meds, I hope to be able to go down a little further. We'll see how it goes. January should be easier, not so many temptations (Christmas parties, Christmas treats).
