Day 80!! (10 min exercise/day)
Thursday, February 16, 2012      4 comments

So far I've done the elliptical for 30 minutes, weights, crunches and stretching. I'm eating lunch right now but will attempt to Zumba afterward. We'll see if the Xbox cooperates today. Our school year is about to get really busy. Mikey ... Read more
Day 79-XBox frustrations
Wednesday, February 15, 2012      3 comments

I admit, I'm not the most tech savvy person in the world, but I usually can get things working. The Xbox today said I couldn't play my Zumba game until I did an update. I clicked "ok." The update was unable to download. I tried to play my ga... Read more

Tuesday, February 14, 2012      3 comments

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. ... Read more

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

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

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

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
Day 69

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
Saturday, February 04, 2012      4 comments

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

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
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      4 comments

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
