Day 127-Adjusting my meals
Well, I've finally admitted to myself that I need to make a change to my diet. Hubby and I are going to do this together, so I'm really excited. We've got a plan for lots more veggies and fruit, and decreasing the meat and fat. I've also give... Read more
Wow! I am glad I got out around 9:30 this morning to jog. It already felt hot and steamy. I did a 3 mile jog in 42.5 minutes. I'm happy with that time. It felt good to finally get a nice long cardio session in. I worked all weekend, and th... Read more

Day 124-Things are looking up!
I squeezed in another short walk today, only 11 minutes. It was fun, though. I took my daughter, Mary, with me. She really enjoyed the "mom time."
Hubby and I picked up our new car today. We got the Honda CRV. I took it to work from th... Read more
Day 123-Rough week continues
I was running late getting ready for work, so I only got 11 minutes of walking in. I was going at a good pace and I'm glad I kept my streak going.
Tonight was a rough night at work. We usually have four pharmacists, we were down to three ... Read more
Again I went a little lighter on the workout. I only did a weight routine. That lasted 30 minutes.
My rough week continues. I paid my property taxes today. We are officially broke today. Luckily, hubby gets paid tomorrow. I sure hope ... Read more
I took it easy today and went just two miles. My jogging mile was 13:45 and my walking mile was 18:15.
Another interesting day around here. I went down to the school to volunteer. I'd been in the classroom 10 minutes when I got called to... Read more
WooHoo! Day 120!
That's four months if my math is correct! My math could be off, I just finished jogging. I walked for 0.25 mile, then jogged 4 miles, then finished with another 0.25 mile walk. Total time was 65 minutes. Jogging time was 55.3 minutes. My mi... Read more
Day 119-Total workout!
Last week was kind of a slower week for me with exercising. I still got my time in every day. Some days were more casual than others: disc golf on Saturday, walk with Hubby Sunday. I looked at my chart today to log my weights and I noticed t... Read more
Day 118-Walk with Hubby
It was such a beautiful evening that I talked Hubby into going for a walk with me. We went one mile in 20 minutes. That's a great pace for hubby, and my left knee is sore so I didn't mind going a bit slower than usual.
We have friends tha... Read more
Day 117-Disc golf with the family, no fall this time
We finally were able to go disc golfing as a family. We went to the course over in Blair. It's a little hilly, but that made for some good hikes. I had better shoes on than the last time we tried. Last year I had a bad fall wearing generic s... Read more
Day 116- Four miles straight jogging!
I'm not sure if I've ever jogged four miles straight before. I know I've done it in intervals, walking and jogging. My jogging time was 56 minutes, that a 14 minute mile. I also walked 1/4 mile before and after. Two interesting things happen... Read more
Day 115-Finally, another jog
It has been a wet, dreary week here in Western Iowa. I finally saw the sun today, and it called me outside for a jog. I only had a short time to work out, so I did 2.5 miles. I walked a total of 0.5 miles and jogged two miles straight (27:20-... Read more
Day 114-Rainy shopping day
I was very active all day long, doing the shopping for the family. YUK! It had to be done, though. I've never seen our fridges and freezers so empty. So I headed out bright and early, well not so bright. It rained and drizzled all day. Firs... Read more
I try to post a blog every day, not only for the points, but because it's easier for me to keep track of my streak. Today I did the elliptical for 30 min. I haven't slept well for a couple of nights, so I have to keep my workout short.
I'... Read more
