Work days are hard
Today was a work day for me. I drive 45 minutes, work 12 hours, then drive home and am on call all night. Most days there is little time for exercise on work days, so I take the stairs instead of using the elevator. There are 115 steps top to... Read more
Little things add up
I had a bunch of little things I needed to do today and didn't have a block of time to exercise. So I took the dog on a slightly longer walk, got on the trainer while talking on the phone, did my challenge video while dinner was cooking. All... Read more
Sore is good
I did my 3rd challenge video today and I am starting to get sore. That is a good thing, it means I am working muscles again. Tomorrow if the weather holds I hope to get another short bike ride in before DH has to go to work.
Life is goo... Read more
Off to a good start!
So far I am doing well. I joined the 28 day Bootcamp and survived the first 2 videos. Today was lovely (even if breezy and cool) so after church DH and I got in a short mountain bike ride. And I have stayed on the low end of my calories. To... Read more
Ready for tomorrow.
I have my official starting over weight. I didn't gain as much as I had feared, but I did gain 15 pounds. My new starting weight is 170 and I want to get to 145 this year. I also want to improve my strength, and finish the quilt for my bed. ... Read more
Just a warning
New Years is coming and I am seriously starting over. Starting when MIL got sick in June (doesn't seem that long ago) I have been very bad. I have intended to get back on the wagon, but found one excuse after another and haven't. So, New Year... Read more
Just catching up ...
I am so far behind in my BLOGging. Sunday DD#2 had her Christmas party at work. We took the grands to church, out to lunch, then DD came over and we made cookies for her to take to work. While she doesn't like cooking meat (just can't stand t... Read more
The Gingerbread Houses
Had to work today, but we close early on Sat, so I got off at 5. Went by and picked up the grands to spend the night (hope I don't get called back). After we ate dinner, it was time to do the annual gingerbread houses. I decided to let them ... Read more
Today was a day of laundry as DD#2 continues to move in things from her apartment. Not sure where she had all this stuff stashed in her little place, but guess we will make room for it. She brought her little pink (yes, pink) tree and we set i... Read more
Ok, so I had to work today (7-7) and DH had to work today (2-MN), DD1 has kids to get in bed and DD2 has to work 5-10). That makes it hard to get some one on one family time in. But it was a slow night at work and I did get to spend time getti... Read more
This morning I had an orthodontic appointment. Got a "tight" upper chain and large triangle rubberbands (translation, won't be eating for a while). Next appointment is Jan 13th and they will schedule removal in Feb. YIPPEE! Removal sounds gr... Read more
Family Lunch Monday
Once again the family got together for lunch. We went to one of MIL's favorite restaurants. We hadn't been back there since she passed away in July and it felt strange being there without her. But instead of ordering the usual pizzas, we had ... Read more
Continuing Education Sunday
Today DH and I had to finish up our CE for the year. We had an hour drive there and back, plus the 5 hours in class. Not exactly the perfect family time, but gave us time to have nice chats on a variety of subjects. Tomorrow he starts his 7 d... Read more
Dec 4: Family time
One of my December Resolutions is to spend one hour with family members every day. No TV, no cell phones, no video games. Just spending time doing things together.
Last night the grands spent the night with us. We picked them up from t... Read more
