Day 114-Rainy shopping day

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I was very active all day long, doing the shopping for the family. YUK! It had to be done, though. I've never seen our fridges and freezers so empty. So I headed out bright and early, well not so bright. It rained and drizzled all day. First stop, Target to get some different clothes for the family. I found almost everything I was looking for there. I even got some new exercise shorts and a top. Then off to the dreaded Sam's and Costco. Yes, we have memberships to both. I had my van filled in every row with groceries and odds and ends. I realized on my way home that I would not be on time to pick up the elementary kids from school so I quickly called a friend. She got the elem. kids, I got the middle school kids. Then we unloaded the whole mess and got it all organized. After that, I chopped up the fresh veggies for salads and we had dinner. I've been going all day, but found enough energy to do some Zumba. I chose an "expert" routine so I could get another accomplishment checked off. The expert levels don't actually work you harder. I really don't like them, but tolerate them to earn my accomplishments. Today's wasn't so bad. It had some decent moves in it.

So my streak continues with 20 minutes of Zumba today.

Day 113

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I try to post a blog every day, not only for the points, but because it's easier for me to keep track of my streak. Today I did the elliptical for 30 min. I haven't slept well for a couple of nights, so I have to keep my workout short.

I'm sparking on the iPad. Anyone who's read my comments before knows that I hate using the iPad for sparking. I prefer a real keyboard, but at least I have a backup.

I spent the morning running around in Omaha. Two of the kids needed to go to the orthodontist, then we went to my thyroid doctor. I've been getting myself worked up about this trip since it's been almost a year since I've been there. The appointment went fine. I was worked up for nothing.

    Any word on changingq up your meds? I know you've been having to make some adjustments and haven't seen the scale move. Hope he could help!

    Glad to hear your concerns about the thyroid dr appointment didn't amount to much. Way to keep that streak going - only 7 more days and you will be at the 4 month point!

Day 112

Monday, March 19, 2012

We were hoping to get some family exercise done, but the weather didn't cooperate. Instead, we played some board games and then went bowling. Bowling was a lot of fun and isn't too expensive at our small town bowling alley. I got a 166! My average used to be around 145 when I was in leagues.

After we got home, I did Zumba with the kids. I burned through three kids in 30 minutes. They discovered it's not so easy. They're fun to exercise with!

Just loved your turn of phrase there - "I burned through three kids in 30 minutes."

Day 111

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Same workout as yesterday, 1.5 miles walking and jogging. My jogging mile time was 13:12. It's still beautiful outside. Of course, I've had to work all weekend and have only been outside for my short workouts. Tomorrow we all have off, and it will most likely rain. We're still planning a fun family day.

Day 110

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I felt pretty good all day yesterday. That's reaffirming that I'm on the right track with my meds.

Today I walked/jogged 1.5 miles. We still have such beautiful weather. It's already 70 out. My jogging mile was 13 minutes, my walking half mile was 8.5 minutes. I thought for sure that I would be slower. The wind is strong out there!

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
