Day 34

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Just a quick blog to say I've kept my streak intact, even though today I feel exhausted. I did 10 min on the elliptical, but went slowly so I wouldn't over do.

(I need to post the blog so I can keep count)

Happy New Year Everyone!!

    Great job, Chris. I was hoping that you were still going strong and just too busy to blog about it.
Happy New Year!!

Day 30

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

I need to keep blogging so I can keep count of what day I'm on. My SparkStreak ticker is inaccurate. I didn't set that up right BEFORE starting the 10 min /day challenge. Ooops!

Today is day 30 and I swam for 20 minutes with stretching afterward for my official exercise. Today we also went bowling, but I really didn't exert myself there. It was a lot of fun taking the kids bowling. We had the younger four on a lane with bumpers. I grew up in bowling leagues (like many other Air Force brats) so I tried to coach the kids a bit. I haven't been in a league since I was Mom-of-four, so I was a little rusty. Our local alley has a special this week while the kids are off from school. It's got me thinking maybe I should look into a league again, but I probably don't have time.

I sure do love this warm streak we are having. I don't think the kids miss the snow either. I would be happy if this lasted all winter, but I won't hold my breath. Even in snow, we manage to have family fun, sledding. Have a great evening everyone!

    Great job on your streak! I am really missing snow this year, though. It doesn't feel like it's the right season, and its throwing me all off! lol.

    I would love for it to stay like this all winter (but, we all know what happens in Iowa!). Keep up the streak!

    I'm with you - I'd love to keep this weather all winter! The hubs and I are constantly researching where we can move when the kids are grown that will have nice winters without being too hot in the summer. Georgia is the front runner at the moment... LOL!

Great job on your streak!

Day 29 of 10 min/day

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Today I swam for 30 minutes, including 1000 backstrokes (2 sets of 500). It feels great to have such a streak going. It definitely makes me more motivated to keep up with it.

I'm trying to get my motivation back for eating better. So far, so good today. I've eaten poorly all weekend. It's time to get back on track, and fix my nutrition short falls. Once I do that, I'm sure I'll start getting back down to the weight I was last spring (around 166).

Thank you to Kelly and Kellie!! You both help me to stay motivated and keep at this for the long haul.

    My eating has been suffering lately too! Luckily, since I'm keeping up the workouts, the weight has been maintaining! Keep up the great work!

Day 28

Monday, December 26, 2011

Today I did 30 min on the elliptical before coming into Omaha for the zoo, and then work. It's been nice having the warmer weather this Christmas. I've been playing catch (nerf football) with a few of my kids and today we walked around the zoo for a bit. I could handle this weather all winter. I'm sticking to the elliptical and pool for my workouts. It's a lot easier on my joints. When the weather really warms up, I might try walking and jogging again.

    I know what you mean about this weather, it is awesome! After the past few winters, this is a wonderful change. Keeping my fingers crossed that it stays this way (but of course, being Iowa, it probably won't). Have a great week!

    You're fortunate to have the pool to work in.

My Christmas gift to myself was purchasing for $2 an awful looking green purse with phrooph on it.

My DH took one look at it and made this 'ugh sound. Then, the sweetie he is said, "maybe it looks better in better lighting."

I said, "Nope!" emoticon
