Day 51-A sad day, but I kept going.
I managed to get a good workout in today. I did the elliptical (30 min total, 10 min intervals), weights (various tricep and glutes), my non-crunch ab routine, and stretching.
I got the call around 9am this morning that my uncle Bobby pa... Read more

Today I got a full workout in:
Elliptical total 60 min- pretty fast for most of it ... Read more
Day 48 and I survived the sleepover
What a busy Friday it was! I managed to get a workout in to keep my streak going, but I had lots of picking up to do around the house to get it ready for Stevie's party. I also had to get some groceries and party gifts and be sure I was at the... Read more
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
Today I swam to give my body a break from the jogging and elliptical and weights. I swam for 30 minutes including 1200 backstrokes (500+700). Today is early out so we'll be having some friends over. Only the older three kids will have friends... Read more
Day 43- Streak intact and going strong!
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
Day 42 of 10 min/day
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
Day 36 + Refections on 2011 and Goals for 2012
I continued my streak of 10 min/day of exercise. Inspired by my reports I looked at last night and the goals I'll mention in a bit, I increased my time on the elliptical to 60 total minutes (three sets of 20). I also did my weight set one (bic... Read more
Today I felt a lot better. I spent most of the day in the kitchen. I wanted to finally finish my Christmas cookies. There were two batches of dough in the refrigerator since before Christmas. My grand total of cookies was: 551. I managed t... 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
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
