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

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

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
Day 158 (10 min/day of exercise)
Friday, May 04, 2012      4 comments

It got hot and humid quickly outside, so I looked at my inside exercise options. I haven't done weights in a while, so I decided on one of those routines: 10 min elliptical, one round of weight set one (chest press, delt press, bicep curls... Read more
Day 157-Happy to have this challenge!

The temps and humidity are rising, so I stayed inside and swam today. I did 30 minutes including 600 backstrokes, freestyle kicks, back kicks, reverse crunches, and ab/adductor kicks. I also stretched afterward, especially to loosen up my neck... Read more

Day 155-Hiking with the kindergarteners
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      6 comments

Today was the kindergarten field trip, so I rearranged my schedule so I could go with the twins. We went up to Hitchcock nature center north of Crescent. I haven't been up there in a very long time. I wish I had gone last year. The views are... Read more
Day 154-Good day
Monday, April 30, 2012      4 comments

Again I didn't sleep too well. I probably got too hyped up from work. We had another good night at work. This morning after everyone left for school and work I did a few chores then went back to bed. I stayed in bed until 11am. Still recove... Read more
Day 153-Still improving
Sunday, April 29, 2012      5 comments

I didn't sleep all that great last night, so I decided to stay home from church this morning. I figured going to church than rushing off to work would be overdoing it, and I want to keep getting better. I stayed in bed until 10:30, not necessa... Read more
Day 152-Feeling a little better
Saturday, April 28, 2012      5 comments

What a difference some sleep makes! I did go to the doctor yesterday since I really need to work this weekend. I can miss one shift. I took an extra shift last week. If I miss all weekend, that's a whole paycheck for me. It's also harder fo... Read more
