My mom just retired about a month ago and I am on summer break from teaching, so we have planned to spend this week at her lake cottage. I am sooo excited! I love spending time with my mom. She just reached her five year cancer free mark so I... Read more

Today the hubby said that he would like to walk with me. He wants to start being more active. I have been making sure that I exercise at least ten minutes a day, but really like to get in at least an hour five or more times per day. I was goi... Read more

I woke up this morning with the idea of running/walking around one of our area lakes. I used to walk around this lake when I did my training for the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk. I always told myself that some day I would run around this entire l... Read more

Today I woke with the intention of going for a run and then walking the remainder of my one hour workout time. The weather was perfect...not too hot and just cool enough to feel great while I ran. I told myself to do at least three miles of ru... Read more

I went for a run this morning and boy was it hot! I ended up running two miles, then walked/ran another three miles. I think I am needing to bring water along with me on my run now since it is getting hot even in the early morning. Either tha... Read more

For the first time ever, I was able to run a full four miles without stopping. When I took off this morning, my plan was to run 3.1 miles and call it good. Instead, the run felt so good I decided to give four miles a try. I owe a big thanks t... Read more

I tried something different
Thursday, May 10, 2012      3 comments

I slept in today instead of getting up early to run. I wanted to see how I would do in the evening and after I had eaten. Typically I get up, drink 16 oz. of water, and then go for a run. I lose my energy towards the end of the third mile, bu... Read more

Yesterday I was headed to the treadmill to run because it was raining cats and dogs outside. Instead, I decided to mix it up and workout with Jillian. She still kicks my butt! I had just finished my Coach Nicole workout that worked my abs. M... Read more

I have been tracking my food once again and it has reminded me of how much better I feel when I do. I have logged all of my food for today and I am good and satisfied. I have not, however, met my goals for anything except sodium and cholestero... Read more

I tried a new dinner tonight. It is called a No Mess Chicken Dinner. It is made in an oven bag with chicken breast, frozen green beans with chicken broth and cream of mushroom soup. It was really quite tasty and quite the easy clean up. Ther... Read more

I got up early enough this morning to get some food, do my Coach Nicole video, then head to run. I thought about running on my treadmill this morning since it looked cold and like it cold rain. I went to the graveyard instead because the tread... Read more
