Day 46
Friday, January 13, 2012      2 comments

Wow! I really overdid it yesterday. Hubby came to my rescue and warmed up my dinner for me while I guzzled some water. I've learned a valuable lesson, when TOM hits hard, take it easy on the workout! I'm proud of myself, however. I remember... Read more

I did 60 minutes on the elliptical today, all at one time, not divided like I normally do. I also did weights, and a non-crunch ab routine. I hope to stretch later. I hate these frigid temps! I want our unseasonably warm weather back. I... Read more

The projected high today, January 10th, is 58 degrees. I decided to walk/jog today for my workout. I'm glad I did. It lifts my spirits so much to get outside. I went a total of 4.5 miles, three one-mile jogs, the rest walking intervals. I ... Read more

Today I rested all morning. Sean stayed home sick today, so I hugged him up. I also didn't sleep well all weekend. I rarely do when I'm working. So at 2pm today I rushed to get my workout in before the rest of the kids came home from school.... Read more

Taking a little break at work to post a quick blog. It's been a busy weekend here, but I'm making myself take breaks. I just took a long walk to the exit door to the employee parking lot (opposite side of the facility than where I work). I wa... Read more

Well, I've been exhausted today. I didn't sleep well. Politics always bothers me, and last night was our caucus night. I know I need to get involved, I just have to stop obsessing over it. I stayed up way too late to see the results, and th... Read more

Just a quick blog to say I've kept my streak intact, even though today I feel exhausted. I did 10 min on the elliptical, but went slowly so I wouldn't over do. (I need to post the blog so I can keep count) Happy New Year Everyone!!... Read more
Day 30

I need to keep blogging so I can keep count of what day I'm on. My SparkStreak ticker is inaccurate. I didn't set that up right BEFORE starting the 10 min /day challenge. Ooops! Today is day 30 and I swam for 20 minutes with stretching a... Read more

Today I swam for 30 minutes, including 1000 backstrokes (2 sets of 500). It feels great to have such a streak going. It definitely makes me more motivated to keep up with it. I'm trying to get my motivation back for eating better. So far,... Read more
