I had to hurry to get my workout in. I walked/jogged 1.5 miles. My jogging mile was 13.5 minutes, walking half mile was 8.5 minutes.
I think I made a good decision with my meds. I'm starting to feel a little better. I may have to do some shorter workouts to keep my streak going, but it only takes 10 minutes per day to keep it up. I can manage that even on my worst days. I got a decent night's sleep last night, and that makes a lot of difference too.
Well, I'm off now to try to be on time to work. Have a great weekend everyone!

I decided to swim today, since I can kind of take it easy if I have to in the pool. I swam for 20 minutes, including only 300 backstrokes. I mostly did kicks holding onto the kick bar.
I've had to review my thyroid/adrenal meds again. Over the last few months I tried to get off of Cytomel and change to dessicated thyroid. I also tried a couple of times to wean off of hydrocortisone. These changes did not agree with my body, so now I'm in the process of going back on Cytomel and remaining on hydrocortisone. I have to convince my doctor that those are the two meds that agree best with my body. We'll see what happens.

I totalled five miles today, walking and jogging. I did 1/4 mile walk, 1 1/4 jog, 1/4 walk, 1 1/4 jog, 1/4 walk, 1 1/2 jog, 1/4 walk. My total jogging time was 57.5 minutes, walking time 18.5 minutes. That last 1/4 mile was pretty slow. That's a little over 14 minutes per mile jogged.
Honors band on Monday night went really well, except that we had to drive to Griswold for it. It was over an hour to get there, in the middle of no where. Patrick plays percussion, so he moved from instrument to instrument. The second song was the best. Pat was on the large chimes and xylophone. When he was waiting for his parts to play he was still jamming out, banging his sticks together and dancing. It was a blast to watch, and we weren't the only ones that noticed. Other parents from our town also commented on how Patrick was really enjoying that second song.
Great job Pat!

I am looking forward to getting outside all week for exercise! This week is supposed to be highs in the 70's and sunny all week. Today I totalled 4.5 miles:
1/4 mile walk, 1 mile jog, 1/2 mile walk, 1 mile jog, 1/2 mile walk, 1 mile jog, 1/4 mile walk.
My mile jog times were: 13:17, 13:12, 12:45. I can't believe I got faster with each mile. It felt really good today. I've made some adjustments to my adrenal fatigue meds, so I'm hoping I won't be so sore tomorrow. I was trying to wean off the oral hydrocortisone, but I don't think my body was agreeing with that, so I went back up to my previous dose.
Today Hubby and I get to go to Honors Band for our eighth grader, Patrick. He's a percussionist and he really enjoys Honors Band. These things are never close to home, and we have to drive over an hour to get there, but the concert will be really good. It's fun to see Patrick get a chance to use the different percussion instruments.
Get outside everyone and enjoy this beautiful day!

Well, it took a while, but we finally figured out how to do multi-player on my Zumba game for the Xbox Kinect. Mary (12) really had fun doing a couple of single routines with me. She has no experience dancing, so it was fun watching her try to keep up with mom. Great bonding time! My total Zumba time today was 40 minutes. That's really good considering I haven't felt good all day. I had a horrible night's sleep. I'm still trying to figure out what's causing my poor sleep. It may just be TOM doing it to me. I'll have to keep better records again.
