Day 179-Food Prep

Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

I've only got a few quick minutes to spark today, so I'm blogging before I exercise. I plan to do 10 minutes on the elliptical. That's all I have time for. Lots of food prep today, but the kids are helping me. I have to make my meals for... Read more

Day 178-Shopping success!

Thursday, May 24, 2012      5 comments

I got my workout in during the 5 pm hour, but I got it done. I did 10 min on the elliptical, then weights and crunches. I spent the earlier part of the day shopping with my oldest daughter. She decided she needs some real bras, not just s... Read more

Day 177-Jogging, and a giant sprinkler!

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      5 comments

Half of my kids didn't realize that I have to work later this afternoon, so they were all puzzled at my hurrying to get them down to the track. They wanted to have a watergun fight, it being the first day of summer break. They all agreed to go... Read more

Day 176-The kids are home for the summer

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      4 comments

Busy, busy last day of school, at least for me. I headed down to the elementary school first for awards ceremonies. I came home for a little bit, squeezed in my exercise, then off to the middle school awards. Now I'm home again for a bit unti... Read more

Day 175

Monday, May 21, 2012      5 comments

I decided to swim today since my calves are a little tight. I went for thirty minutes, including 1000 total back strokes. Family TV time right now, so I'm going to go. ... Read more

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
