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
We were hoping to get some family exercise done, but the weather didn't cooperate. Instead, we played some board games and then went bowling. Bowling was a lot of fun and isn't too expensive at our small town bowling alley. I got a 166! My a... Read more
Same workout as yesterday, 1.5 miles walking and jogging. My jogging mile time was 13:12. It's still beautiful outside. Of course, I've had to work all weekend and have only been outside for my short workouts. Tomorrow we all have off, and i... Read more

Day 109-Feeling a little better
I had to hurry to get my workout in. I walked/jogged 1.5 miles. My jogging mile was 13.5 minutes, walking half mile was 8.5 minutes.
I think I made a good decision with my meds. I'm starting to feel a little better. I may have to do som... Read more
Day 108-Not feeling well, but kept my streak going
I decided to swim today, since I can kind of take it easy if I have to in the pool. I swam for 20 minutes, including only 300 backstrokes. I mostly did kicks holding onto the kick bar.
I've had to review my thyroid/adrenal meds again. Ov... Read more

Day 104-Zumba with my daughter
Well, it took a while, but we finally figured out how to do multi-player on my Zumba game for the Xbox Kinect. Mary (12) really had fun doing a couple of single routines with me. She has no experience dancing, so it was fun watching her try to... Read more
My body is sore again today, and TOM hit, so I forced myself to only walk. I did two miles in 32 minutes. I'm hoping that will get some of the lactic acid build up out of my muscles and give my body a little bit of a break.

Day 102-Beautiful sunny day!
I think I'll finally be able to start jogging regularly, at least for the next week. Today was sunny and in the upper 50's. I took it a little easier than on Tuesday. I'm still sore from that outing. I walked 1/4 mile, jogged 1 mile, walked ... Read more
