Bring on the summer!

Thursday, May 30, 2013

My son and I have been sick the last couple of weeks. He had mild pneumonia and I had a "summer cold" which I'm still fighting off. I haven't walked since last week. This evening I'm hitting the road and doing my two miles. I miss it!! Going to get started back on the C25k as well.
My 20 year old started college finally. It's been a long road for her. She is so introverted and shy and we have always been suspicious that she may have Asperger's. She has been homeschooled since 6th grade. I pulled her out of school because of this and now I know I made the right decision. Things are falling into place and I'm finding out that my daughter has many talents. I've always known she was an amazing artist. Recently, I have learned that she is also an amazing writer.
I hate that I go so long and not read the Sparkpeople blogs. I'm going to work on logging in daily even if it's just for a few minutes.
Have a great summer everyone and thanks for reading.


Back on track.

I officially started a beginner 5k prep program today. It's similar to the C25K. I did pretty well. Still walking 3 or more times a week. Usually over 2 miles.

Yesterday I did the March of Dimes walk-a-thon. Had a great time.

I haven't lost anymore weight but I haven't gained either. I'm getting my diet back on track.

I've gotten out of the habit of checking Spark every day. Uggghh.

What happened to spring?? This is the Ms Gulf Coast! It's not suppose to be cold this time of year!!

My son and I didn't do our hike this weekend. He is not feeling good. Has temp and sore throat. I'm staying home with him today.

I'm walking as often as possible and have started doing some of the Sparkpeople workouts.

Still going strong with a stumble here and there.

Have a fabulous week!

I too am wondering what happened to Spring. As I write this I am watching the snow fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virgina. 5 inches and counting! But it is supposed to be 60 on Sunday so there is something to look forward to.

I used to live in Fort Walton Beach, FL and would often take road trips to Biloxi, saw a great concert there; Stained, Nickelback and Linkin Park and Limp Biskit back in the late 90's.

Hang in there, this is probably old man winter's last hurrah for the year! Hope your son feels better soon! emoticon

Nature hike with my favorite guy

Monday, March 18, 2013

Sunday my 8 year old son and I took a hike on part of a 13 mile trail. We did two miles! I can walk two miles easily but was surprised that my little man kept up and even ran ahead of me of a few times. I know what our new pass time is going to be. Next time we are packing a back pack with healthy snacks and extra water and maybe go a little further. Had such a great time.

    That is such a great idea! Walking can get so boring by yourself; bringing someone along makes it way more fun!

Checking in :-)

As of today I have lost 19 lbs! I hope I can keep this going. Sometimes it just has to click in my head that there are no short cuts to fitness and weight loss. Diet change and excercise are the key. So far I have walked two days this week. Tuesday I walked over 2 miles. Yesterday I walked about 1.5 miles. Had to cut it short due to work issues.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

    Thank you! I'm going to start getting up early and working out. That is the best time. Luckily, I get an hour for lunch and work 5 minutes from a beach board walk and walking track. This week I have been walking the track but next week will hit the board walk again. The track gets a little boring. ha ha ha

    Great job. I don't know if it would work for you, but I'm a working mom too and I have pretty good luck working out in the early morning before work or mom duty calls.
