Day 78-Happy St. Valentine's Day
The day started with the phone ringing at 5:45am. It was the automated call to tell us that school was starting two hours late. In other words, they woke me up 45 minutes earlier than normal to tell me that I could sleep in.
Today I was able to get back on track with weights. For various reasons I was only able to get one weight session in last week. Today I did 30 min elliptical, weights (chest, bicep, delt, quads), crunches (regular, bicycle, reverse) and then 2... Read more
Day 76-Still going!
Yes, I did Zumba again today, for 32 minutes. Wow! The fast parts are really fast and I'm only on the first easy level. I need to "earn" more levels.
I'm ready for the week to start. I had way too much activity this weekend. I hope the... Read more
Day 75-More Zumba
I navigated my game a little easier today. I hope I can figure out how to log in when the kids are at school. I did 30 min of Zumba today. I love this game!
Today Stevie had his second basketball game. My parents were able to go. His t... Read more
I went shopping today with all the kids. Yes, I'm nuts!! They all needed different items, and they didn't have school, so we all ventured out first thing in the morning. I think I found everything I was looking for, even Zumba for the Xbox360... Read more
I got called in to work today out here in my small town hospital. It was my first time being the only pharmacist on duty. The technician was there too, so she could help me if I had trouble finding things. It was a good day. Slow at first, t... Read more
Days 71 & 72
Yesterday was a great day! I did 60 total minutes on the elliptical ( 16x3, then 12), weights, non-crunch abs, and stretching for a fantastic full workout. I also ate great all day. I'm still pushing the veggies. Most days I'll have my veggi... Read more
I sure was glad the kids had a two hour delay for the start of school this morning. I "worked" last night, so I didn't get to bed till midnight. It was pretty slow. I think it's kind of funny how a hospital slows down during major sporting ev... Read more
Today I did 40 minutes on the elliptical before getting ready for work. It was hard to get going. My body sure felt the effects of shoveling and sledding yesterday. Climbing repeatedly up a snow covered hill really was a great lower body work... Read more
Day 68- Shoveling snow and sledding
What does a crazy, 43 year-old, mother of six do for cardio when a major snow storm hits? She helps the family shovel the double wide, quadruple long driveway... and then is crazy enough to go sledding too. Today I shoveled for 45 minutes and... Read more
Today I was able to fit in 35 minutes in our Endless pool, 31 of those minutes were backstrokes (1800). I only stopped twice during the swim (goggle adjustment, and re-turn the motor on).
Right now I'm at work, taking my break. The comput... Read more
Day 66-My Two Year Sparkversary!!
I'm glad I picked Groundhog day to join Sparkpeople. It helps me remember my Sparkversary. So, no matter if the Groundhog sees his shadow or not, I'm celebrating today.
I've actually been in a down mood. I think it was all the clouds thi... Read more
Day 65 January wrap up
Today I had to swim for my exercise. I managed 40 minutes in the pool, five doing various kicks, 35 swimming the backstroke. I had to stop three times, twice to adjust the current speed, and once to adjust my goggles, so technically, it wasn't... Read more
Today I got outside again to enjoy the fantastic weather. After shopping all day (Pamida, Target, Sams, Costco) I managed to get a three mile jog in, that's three miles straight in under 41 minutes. It felt great! I haven't jogged a three mil... Read more
Day 63-What a Beautiful Day!!
High in the 60's today here in western Iowa. I can't believe it's still January. I'm glad to get to fantastic weather because I am really getting bored of the elliptical. So you know where I went today... outside!
I went a total of 4.5 m... Read more
