We had a somewhat busy day for a Sunday yesterday. First church, then home to get the twins ready for their soccer pictures. They both looked so cute. Sean has such a hard time having a natural smile. It's so funny. Mary and Stevie had pictures too. Many moms had to make several trips, me included. It took up my whole day. I got my workout done in the evening again, 20 minutes in the pool, including 500 backstrokes.
I didn't sleep too well again, so I was slow getting going today. It is such a nice day out, that once I started, I didn't want to stop jogging. My total today was 4.5 miles straight jogging in 62 minutes. That's 14 minutes per mile. I know I've gone that far before, just not all jogging or all in a row. I'm really proud of that!

I went to three soccer games today. Stevie's was first, bright an early at 9am. I worked until 12:30am last night, 10.5 hours straight with no break. One of our pharmacists just got back from wintering in Florida, and he's still catching on again. He retrains each spring. I love him to death, but I hate cleaning up after him.
Anyway, back to soccer. Stevie (10) scored twice today! He looked really good out there and his team won. The twins, Sean and Bridget (6), played at 1pm. Bridget scored twice and Sean six times to help their team win. The little kids are so cute, not too many rules, no goalies, just a lot of kids running around having fun. Mary (12) played at 2 and her team won. She's a defender so she doesn't get a chance to score. I took the kids to Subway for Goodrich ice cream afterward. I was good, and had nothing there.
For my workout today I managed one mile jogging (13:16) and my weight set one (chest press, delt press, bicep curls, quads). I'm kind of tired since I didn't get to bed until almost 2am, but my workout counts and my streak continues.

I kept Bridget home from school today, and she seems to be improving. We are watching all the Barbie movies. So far we've watched: Mariposa and Thumblina. She's keeping down crackers and Poweraid, so I think she's getting better. She'll hopefully be able to do her soccer game tomorrow.
I got on the elliptical again for 30 minutes. I was hoping for a more complete workout, but I have to head off to work soon. I shouldn't overdo it before a ten hour shift.
Lots of construction equipment outside today. They are getting ready to do some sewer work, and it looks major. Huge cement "pipes" arrived today, and there's lots of really big equipment. They've also dumped four huge piles of rock/gravel on the street in front of our house. This should be interesting when they start to tear everything up.
Have a great weekend everyone!

I felt really tired today. It couldn't be all the running around I've done this week for the family, or the two awesome workouts in a row?
I really took it easy today. I went back to bed after everyone left and stayed there till 10:30. Then I watched TV for a few hours. It's funny, even on my lazy days I still get several loads of laundry done and folded and I clean the kitchen and do dishes. After school the kids and I worked together to hurry to get the split pea soup going, and then I had to run them to piano and Bridget to the doctor. I took her in for pink eye, but found out there that she has a fever. Horrible mom!! I missed the fever!! She appears to have some kind of virus and her eyes are watery because of it.
The rain today made my evening easier. Soccer and track all got cancelled, so less running around.
I finally got my workout done, at 7:30 tonight. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical at a slower pace, not all out. It still counts though and my streak continues.

I LOVE getting outside in weather like this. Today I did jogging and weight intervals:
1 mile jog, weights, abs (non-crunch)
I did this three times.
My jogging total time was under 42 minutes. I felt slow today, and it felt pretty warm out there. I hope the weather cooperates. I'd love to get outside again this week.
I am doing great at avoiding fat, alcohol, and high glycemic foods. I'm also trying really hard to watch my portions, 3/4 of my plate as veggies, 1/4 meat. I think I really needed some extra last night after dinner. I was starting to crash and had an extra ham and cheddar cheese (a fancy Irish kind from Costco). That helped a lot instead of my usual stick of string cheese. I still think I'm making progress, but can only weigh myself once a month, if that often. I don't want to discourage myself.
Hubby is still trying hard at eating well. He also tries to get some sort of workout in, but he is pretty tired after work.
I'd better go now, lots still to do around the house.
