Short workouts each day due to Thanksgiving weekend and work schedule.

Friday: 11 min walk-very cold out!

Saturday: 10 min elliptical

Sunday: 10 min elliptical

I am so happy now! Hubby finally lubricated my elliptical and it is making so much less noise. I think I can finally adapt to indoor workouts, if I can only find the time for a longer workout.

Day 359-Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 22, 2012

It's another sunny day here in Western Iowa. The temps are a little cooler than yesterday, but still nice. I got out for a walk with my daughter. We went for one mile in 20 minutes. A back ache is slowing me down this week, but I'm still getting it done.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Day 358

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

I went for a walk with my seven year old daughter today. She kept up really well. We went 1.35 miles in 28 minutes and there were lots of hills. We went up to the cemetery again and said some prayers together. It sure is warm out here in Western Iowa today. Projected high today is in the 70s. I can't believe what beautiful weather we're going to have for Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Day 357- Gorgeous day!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

What a beautiful morning here in western Iowa! The sun is shining and not a cloud in the sky. It's a little brisk out there, temps are in the 30s. Hubby and I bundled up and went for a walk first thing after the kids went off to school. I'm still warming my body back up to the house's temperature. We walked 1.5 miles in 32 minutes. That's a 21.3 min mile, pretty good for Hubby. To be honest, that's probably pretty good for me too these days.

Well, I'd better go. Lots of mom stuff to catch up, and Thanksgiving preparation to get to.

Days 354, 355, 356 & Date Night with Hubby!

Monday, November 19, 2012

Yes, my streak is still going. I'm just working a lot, so I'm not always able to get on Spark People.

Saturday (354)- We had two basketball games through the day. One was twenty minutes west of us, the other was 30 minutes east. It kind of chewed up the whole day. I did get a one mile walk in with hubby, about 20 min.

Sunday (355)- Always a busy day! Church in the morning, then an extra shift of work in the evening. I managed a one mile walk early in the morning. This one was about 19 minutes.

Monday (356)- I had trouble sleeping last night. I probably had caffeine too late again. I tend to do that at work. I went on a longer walk today, 1.9 miles in 34 minutes. I made it up to the cemetery again to pray.

Friday Hubby called me on his way home and said he needed a night out. I was very quick to respond, "YES!" As I was getting dressed nice (not too fancy, but nicer than my everyday mom clothes) hubby was cooking eggs for the kids. I came out to show him how good I looked, and before he looked up he said, "Why don't we just save some money and eat eggs with the kids. We can get some popcorn at the movie then." Sternly, I responded, "Do I look like I want to eat eggs with the kids!" emoticon

Hubby quickly redeemed himself and took me to Dolce in Omaha. It was excellent! I highly recommend it. We then went to the Imax in CB and saw the new James Bond movie. Again, I highly recommend that. It's the first Bond movie I've liked in a long time. They're getting back to what James Bond is supposed to be. So, after swinging and missing on the first pitch, Hubby hit a homerun.

    Wow, Chris. Look how close you are to your full year! It gets difficult when work and family pulls you in different directions (literally and figuratively) but you're doing an awesome job.

Love the way you didn't back down on the date night - sounds like you guys had fun, too.
