Thursday: chased joey around soccer field for 45 minutes
Tuesday: 20 minute resistance band workout
midterms sucked me in and chewed me up and spit me out.
its in the 90s here again, its really hard to motivated myself to even go outside in the heat. and it pretty much hasnt rained since august so i'm still sneezing up a storm.

Sparkpeople, exams, and life was too much to cram into every day. So i took a week from checking in on sparkpeople. But, it's weigh in day so i figured it'd be a good time to check in.
So, remember how i gained a pound last week? that 1 lb that put me 2 lbs away from my goal? Yeah, i told that pound to kiss my * * *. So, I lost 3 lbs this week. I'm down to 170!!!!!! Hit my mini goal!!! I forgot what my 2nd mini goal is, i'll have to go search for it.
Wednesday: 35 minutes - Walked 2 miles
Thursday-43 minutes - Walked 2.5 miles
Friday - 75 minutes - Walked around mall for1 hr. 15 minutes as exercise, not shopping.

yep. I broke a bad habit. a yucky one. one that causes lung/throat/mouth cancers etc. I'd been down to one a day for a few years now. I kicked it. Once again, I am properly motivated. I tried this last week. Nope. not motivated. But yesterday I decided I don't want to put myself at risk for cancer. My genetics have me at a great risk already. So there we go. I'm done with that.
I am on the road to self improvement in all areas. One baby step at a time.
i walked today. 1.5 miles. i ran out of time. Until this sinus/allergy/upper respiratory stuff goes away I will not try to jog. However, I'll be aiming to walk every morning. I just have to keep on moving. Tomorrow I'll try to leave the house 10 minutes earlier and walk 2 miles. There's 1 hr 20 minutes at my disposal in the mornings. There's a potential for 3 miles of walking plus driving and stretching time. I'll work harder to get out the door faster.
For the next couple of weeks, I'll be focusing a lot on making sure i've learned everything for midterms, so i need to get my workouts in early so I won't forget to do it. Midterms have tripped me up before. But I've never wanted to be healthy this bad. They won't stop me now. Nothing will.
Weigh in tomorrow!!
Wednesday: 5 min stretch, 5 min warm up, 16 min walk, 3 min jog, 6 min cool down, 5 min stretch. (10 ST; 30 min cardio)

My life is all about tests right now. geez.
Test 1: Well, midterms are here i have 2 this friday and 2 next friday. bleh
Test 2: Stupid sinus infection came back. i feel like someone hit me in the head with a sledge hammer.
Test 3: My uncle. Well, he's not doing well. You guys know I did the Light the Night Leukemia/Lymphoma walk saturday night. Well, that night he had massive heart failure. He's back in the hospital. he has 2 leaking heart valves. He may have had a stroke too. He can't type anymore and he has slurred speech. They stopped his chemo. He called together his 5 brothers and sisters and his kids yesterday. It was pretty much a goodbye speech.
I spent most of yesterday crying and staring at a my phone and the computer screen. He liked the team banner and his survivor shirt almost seems like a cruel irony. I thought yesterday about all the gold balloons that were released during the ceremony saturday night, the gold balloons representing all the people lost to blood cancer since last years Light the Night walk. I couldn't help thinking that next year, we'd be sending up a gold balloon.
This hurts. bad. I love that crazy old man. the crazy old man that talks about the end of the world and never makes sense because his medication makes him a little screwy. he's missed his "end of the world" prophecies a few times. Bless his heart. i'll miss how he lets his grandchildren climb all over him even though it hurts him. i'll miss how even at 60 years old and very week he climbs up the inflatable water slide at the 4th of July party and slides with all the kids.
He'll keep fighting. Though, under those conditions, i'd be ready to just move on. he's quite the fighter. he's been fighting 30 years. the sad part is, its not the cancer that's taking him down, its the side effects of radiation treatment. it's eaten holes in his intestines. his body doesn't absorb the nutrients from his food. well, it just...it just...well, it sucks.
so, if you would please send a prayer, or a thought, in Bruce Guy's direction. or, in his wife's direction. It could be hours, or it could be a few more months, but this close knit family is about to take a hard hit.
