Monday, October 24, 2011      2 comments

Hubby had all of last week off from work. It was nice spending so much time with him. We got lots of errands done, ate out for lunch a few times, and just enjoyed each other's company. He even made big progress on a project along our flower b... Read more

As you can imagine, I'm quite frustrated right now. I went to the doctor yesterday, stepped on the scale and it had confirmed what I already knew. I've been gaining the last few months despite being active and eating pretty well. I feel exhau... Read more

Friday, September 23, 2011      3 comments

This week I'm bored with working out. I love getting outside, but was tired of the same routine. I couldn't even motivate myself to just walk/jog after walking the kids to school. So first I did a weight lifting workout. Ok, that worked, I w... Read more

Started off the 12 weeks to fabulous challenge great! Then, my chest got all congested. I was laid up by the end of the week and had no will power to eat well. We had a good Saturday visit with friends we don't see too often. But again, ate ... Read more

Heel Spur slowing me down
Monday, August 29, 2011      5 comments

It's been hard staying motivated these last couple of weeks. I'm eating okay, with some deviation from my plan on occasion. I have to start being a positive influence on Hubby, and not let him be a bad influence on me. I think I'll enlist the... Read more

Just a quick blog today. I kept myself busy yesterday (first day of school) and I did fine. It seemed the kids were home before I knew it. I got a ton of laundry done and started to organize my kitchen again after a summer of the kids ruling ... Read more

I've been looking forward to, and dreading this day for a few weeks. It's the first day of school. Usually I'm cheering. We've all been there. The kids are squirrelly and bickering frequently. My house has the lived in all summer look. I k... Read more

Well, I've had to admit that my heel spurs are a problem. Combine that with the heat wave we've had lately, and I've decided to swim for my exercise. We have an Endless pool that we built a room around so we can use it year round. It's about... Read more

Yesterday it was 100 degrees, I had my six kids with me and we went to Omaha to do the dreaded school shopping. I might have tried Council Bluffs, but Hubby forgot some important papers and we had to also run those to him at work. I have to sa... Read more
Heel Spur?

Anyone out there have experience with heel spurs? I've had heel pain since last year when I started jogging. Some days worse than others, but manageable. On Monday, I did something stupid. I was trying to be super-fun mom after working six d... Read more
Orientation over!! Maybe I can be a pharmacist now!
Thursday, July 21, 2011      7 comments

Ugh!!! Two and a half days of orientation and computer based training have kind of drained my enthusiasm for my new job. I realize this is more the federal government's fault than anything else, but really, two and a half days!!! I learned an... Read more
Kids had ice cream, I had salad!

The last swim meet was last night. I wish I could tell you how it went. I volunteered to help line the kids up for their events. What chaos!! I don't even know all the kids names, and they all look the same in their team swimsuits and caps. ... Read more
