Day 278-Another quick mile

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Good Morning everyone! I really enjoyed my one mile jog this morning. It is beautiful outside today. The thermometer read 68 degrees and the sun is shining bright. I didn't even take my iPod today. I just wanted to listen to the "quiet." My time was 13:15, only three seconds slower than yesterday.

Have a blessed day!

    Think back 279 days - would you have so casually said, "Oh, another quick mile, la de da..."

I think not! Good going!

Day 277-Quick one mile jog

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I finally got outside when it wasn't too hot to jog. I did a quick one mile, 13:12 was my time. Afterward I was able to do some weights (bicep curls, tricep "curls", and delt presses). Hubby finally got the adjustable hand weights working again. WooHoo! I also stretched for four minutes afterward, my calves. I always have to try to keep those loose. So it was a quick workout, but a complete workout.

On another happy note, hubby says he's going to start eating healthy again. I'm really proud of him for trying to get back at it. He also wants to start walking and lifting weights every day.

    Great workout! I'm glad your DH is wanting to make better choices again. I'm sure you are his inspiration! It is so nice to do it together. Yay!

Day 276-Still Busy!

Friday, August 31, 2012

Still trying to get too much done in very little time. Last night, my oldest son, Mikey, received his academic letter that he earned last year. It was a nice banquet, and free, so that's always a bonus. The down side was that the food was high carb, which I normally don't eat. It did taste good, some kind of chicken in a creamy sauce on bowtie pasta. I even had a dinner roll. All of it was very yummy.

I haven't had much time to get laundry done, but I'm almost done with it for the week. The family will have to help with the final couple of loads, but I can't believe I got as much done as I did. I worked a lot this week, and on the two days I didn't work, I still went into Omaha. One day was for a Costco run, the other for orthodontist appointments for two of my kids.

Today I didn't have much time before work, so I only got in ten minutes on the elliptical again. I feel good, though. That's ten minutes of exercise a lot of other people don't get in, and it still adds up and keeps me feeling good about myself.

    Ten minutes is better than nothing! I'm doing a laundry marathon today. Don't know why I put it off, but...

Have a great weekend!

Day 275-Busy!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Too much going on today, and too much laundry to catch up, so I only did 10 minutes on my elliptical this afternoon. I wish I could have gotten outside early, but I couldn't due to orthodontist appointments for my kids. I also have just one day to catch up laundry, before working all weekend.

    Sometimes housework can be counted as fitness. Great job on the 10 minutes

Day 274

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

My two best friends came over for coffee this morning, so I ran out of time to get a good workout in. It has been too long since we've visited, and I think we are planning to do coffee more often. I'm not planning on volunteering at the school, so that should open up my mornings. I just don't have time for volunteering any more with all the work hours I'm picking up.

I did get my "workout" in, though. I did ten minutes on the elliptical. It's too hot to go outside, unless I get out first thing. I was tired, so I tried to nap a little after everyone left for school/work. So the elliptical got some use today, although I wish I had more time.

    I think mental health is just as important as physical, glad you got to spend time with your besties

    I'm glad you got to visit with friends. That is important for your general health! Great job keeping your streak alive! Just think of all the days you would just skip a workout if it weren't for your streak. Some days are harder than others, but it is great to know that you have been consistent for 274 days! Woohoo! Way to go!
