Cleaning kitchen afterward. Got in over 10,400 steps in for the day. Not too shabby. Hoping the rest of the week goes as smoothly. <BR> <BR> Have a good night all.

How 2016 is going by so quickly! <BR> 40 minute walk this morning. Don't know if I'll get the chance to do much exercise this afternoon after work since there's a few things that need to be done once we get home. Most notably, cutting veggies and cleaning out the fridge for the week. <BR> <...

It was supposed to be raining all weekend! <BR> Not that I'm complaining that it's not! Would like to have a correct weather forecast though to be able to prepare for the day ahead! Geesh!! <BR> DH took the grands out photo shooting this afternoon and haven't come home yet. It's getting pretty late and I don't expect that they'll be back home before midnight at least.

Also to those in California who have lost their homes in the wildfires. God Bless them all. <BR> <BR> On a side note, I did make it to the gym this evening. Spent 50 minutes on the elliptical.

I managed a walk around the block at lunch and stair climbing throughout the day. <BR> After work, we couldn't get to the gym because of bad traffic. Even if we had, we'd only have been there not longer than 15 minutes, what with having to change and all. DH had an appointment to take the grandkids to a skating party for the grandson's boy scout troop. <BR> Since they're home, I can tell they all had a great time. <BR> In the meantime, I spent 15 m...

Didn't get much chance to do much on Sparks, other than spin the wheel and try to check other's blog posts. Also tried to keep up with emails. All of which happened sporadically, to be sure. <BR> At the end of each day, we were dragging to a hotel late. Wednesday night we were in Des Moines finding that the Iowa State Fair was going on. Oh boy. I had taken my bosses suggestion of not reserving rooms for the nights we were going...

We'll be on the road by 4:00 am , more than likely. It will take at least 3 1/2 hours to get to the first stop. Tomorrow really shouldn't be too bad cause the agents I will be visiting with all live close to each other. Two of them in Nebraska. <BR> It's Thursday, I'm not really looking forward to. A lot of travel time in the car and more than likely not able to stop anywhere for lunch. Friday will be MUCH be...

Been getting ready for an audit trip this week. Once we're back a week from today, everything should get back to normal. I hope anyway. <BR> <BR> I will try to post as much as I can while away. At this point, I really don't know how much time I will have for myself though. Am hoping to at least get some walking done every day that we're out.

Hot, muggy weather again today. Tomorrow will be as well. It's almost fall. Not sure if I'm happy about that... <em>246</em> <BR> <BR> Very busy day today. Had to sit quite a lot writing letters. Gym afterward and the elliptical again. I've been thinking that since I can't take the time in the mornings to get a good walk in that I need to get it done at the gym after work.

Can't believe she's already a year old! <BR> <BR> Today was a very busy day. Every morning, before I head to work, I tell myself that I can take at least 20 minutes out of my time once I get to work to do a bit of exercise. No matter what it is.

Either that or my scale is off. <BR> But then again, we did have all the food in the office yesterday. While I may have "Thought" that I was watching what I was eating, maybe I didn't do a good enough job at that. <BR> <BR> Today there was still food in the office.

I did make it to 8,256. I guess not too bad. <BR> Birthday party today for two co-workers. Didn't do too badly. I did help myself to breakfast pizza and a piece of lemon cake. Didn't over do.

Ugh....too much to do and no time to do it in, unless I work off the clock. Drat it all. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I've managed a 23 minute workout on the elliptical this evening. May make it to the gym tomorrow. Probably not though. DD and I have to pack some things for a trip we're taking Thursday after I get off of work.

Was a busy weekend. Didn't get much in the way of exercise in, other than Saturday morning. Even that wasn't too much. About 30 minutes of upper body work. A bit of legs in there too. <BR> Then we had to come home for a photoshoot for my DH. He took photos of a new born and his older brother. Beautiful shots. He had to keep the "Big Brother" busy, as he was a bit on the jealous side. He's all of 3 years old and not quite ...

Only made it to 7,152 steps today. Only because I had pulled a muscle in my leg yesterday from over exerting myself. <em>24</em> <BR> Will have to try to stretch it out until the pain is better. It's hard to climb stairs comfortably. <BR> I am sticking with the 25 pushups daily however. <BR> <BR> Have a good night everyone. <em>247</em> and Blessings.

I guess....lol <BR> <BR> Sunday wasn't a bad day, although very hot, as it is almost every where. Got in an elliptical workout. Otherwise, just took the day off pretty much everything else, other than laundry, of course. I did manage to get 8,547 steps in, however. <BR> <BR> Today is a new day, and the beginning of a new week. Since last week wasn't a great week for "conscious eating" with all the company that we had in the office, this week wil...

Just made it to 8,856 steps. Would do more but it's late. <BR> I did get some ST done today, however. Mostly lower body workout. A good 45 minutes worth. Decent days work. <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> How ya doing, Gabi girlfriend?! Let me hear from you! <BR> Have a good night everyone. Sleep well. <em>247</em> Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:23:59 EST Busy, Busy Friday....STEP GOAL MET!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188981 Hello friends, <BR> Yes, it's Friday. Yes, I said yesterday that I probably wouldn't make step goal today. Guess what!! I DID!! <BR> I did SO much walking around today, just in the office building! I just made 10,000 a minute ago. <BR> Now, we're going to the Mid Year dinner and more walking around. Of course, my feet hurt now. I'm going to be SO ready for bed when we get home!! <BR> <BR> Have a good night everyone. Chances are I won't be able to post again tonight. Wanted to gi... Fri, 24 Jun 2016 18:08:35 EST Thursday's entry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188477 What a bummer. <BR> Had a good day, really, but didn't manage to get to work early enough to get any walking done. Had some straightening of the office to do, since we were going to have "visitors" coming in. Don't need for them to see a messy office. Tomorrow will be about the same, except that I'll get there early. Will be able to walk tomorrow morning. Not so tomorrow night. <BR> Tomorrow is "Mid-Year" for our agents. This means that they will have meetings to go to, however a lot ...
