Day 174-another Mother's Day

Sunday, May 20, 2012      3 comments

We went to early mass today and were able to go to a nice brunch afterward at Crave in Omaha. It's a little pricey, but kids eat free for every adult. Today, they charged Mikey and Pat as kids, so we got two free kid meals, and our teenagers w... Read more

Day 173-Soccer games and three mile jog

Saturday, May 19, 2012      3 comments

Today was the last day of soccer in our small town. All our games were home games, and both sets of grandparents made it out. Stevie's game was first. He scored two goals and possibly a third. We couldn't tell if it was an assist or a goal f... Read more

Day 172-more weights

Friday, May 18, 2012      3 comments

I basically repeated yesterday's workout with a few changes: 15 min elliptical, a different weight set (biceps, chest, delts, quads), various crunches, and then stretching. I think the elliptical is giving my calf some needed rest too. I hope... Read more

Day 171-weights

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

I had to take Patrick to the doctor today. He woke up with a swollen eye. It wasn't goopy, so I figured it wasn't pink eye. The school thinks any eye problem is pink eye, so I just kept him home and planned to take him in. It's a good thing ... Read more

Days 169 & 170-Still going!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012      5 comments

I wasn't able to get my workout in earlier in the day yesterday. I volunteered at the school, then went grocery shopping. After that I was in the kitchen most of the evening, except for walking down to the school after school and a trip to the... Read more

Day 168-Good 3 mile jog

Monday, May 14, 2012      3 comments

It's a little warm out there today, temps in the 80's. Fortunately, the humidity isn't bad, so I went for a jog. I was able to do 3 miles today in 41 minutes. My miles were: 13:10, 14:15, 13:55. These are pretty normal times for me. My... Read more

Day 167

Sunday, May 13, 2012      3 comments

I did another quick 10 minutes on the elliptical today. Busy day today, so I'd better go. Happy Mother's Day everyone!... Read more

Day 166

Saturday, May 12, 2012      3 comments

10 min on the elliptical today. Other news: I avoided all kinds of cookies and treats at work last night. It was tough since I was really craving those things. That was probably because I forgot to take my morning doses of thyroid/hydrocort... Read more

Day 165

Friday, May 11, 2012      4 comments

Oops! I didn't mean to mislead everyone yesterday. I'm not training for a half marathon. I haven't even run an official 5k race yet. Family commitments always come first. I'd love to train for a 10k. With my longer jogs this year, I think ... Read more

Day 164-13 miles jogged this week, half marathon in four days

Thursday, May 10, 2012      5 comments

I realized as I was jogging my planned three miles today, that if I extended by just a half mile, my total would be 13 miles in four days. So today, I totaled 3.5 miles in 49 minutes. I did this in intervals, one mile, one mile, 1.5 miles. In... Read more

Day 163-Slow jog

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      5 comments

I got called into work today, so my afternoon is getting cut short. It's probably a good thing. My body is tired, my legs feel heavy. I did a slow 2 mile jog today. My times per mile: 13:34, 14:56 for 28.5 minutes of jogging. The sun felt ... Read more

Day 162-More jogging

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      5 comments

I was hoping it would be a little more sunny out there. The clouds decided to come out while I was jogging, and the wind is nuts. I broke up my workout into intervals today: one mile jog, one round of weights (tricep pulldown, front lat, trice... Read more

Day 161-Finally cool enough for a jog

Monday, May 07, 2012      5 comments

After getting sick 1 1/2 weeks ago, then the super hot May weather, it feels like forever since I've jogged. I was getting some good distances too. Today I planned on jogging 3 miles, but I got in my stride. I hate to stop when I'm there, so ... Read more

Day 160-Fun Family night last night

Sunday, May 06, 2012      3 comments

After soccer, napping, and a quick workout, we did decide to go out last evening. We took the whole family to see "The Avengers." We even got popcorn and drinks for the full movie experience. What a fun evening! All the kids enjoyed the movi... Read more

Day 159

Saturday, May 05, 2012      3 comments

We had soccer games this morning, 30 minutes away from town. It was hot out there! Stevie (10) got asked to fill in for a second team, so he played two whole games. He did have an hour rest in between. Mary looked so hot out there. Her game... Read more
