Day 208

Saturday, June 23, 2012      3 comments

Just got in a quick walk with my oldest daughter. We did one mile in 18.5 minutes with a quick stop at a friends house for a garage sale. Nice to visit with Susan for a few minutes, even nicer to visit with my daughter alone for the walk.... Read more

I finally feel like I accomplished something today (for working out). I walked 0.25 mile, jogged 2 miles, and walked another 0.25 mile. Both my jogging miles were just over 13 minutes each. I felt great! I haven't really been stretching like... Read more

Day 205-I need this streak!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      6 comments

Today I did the elliptical for 10 minutes, then did weights and crunches. Looking at my notebook, I haven't done weights since May 24th. Oops! That was almost a month with no resistance. New focus: get weights done 2-3 times per week for a ... Read more

Day 204-Streak intact, surprisingly

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      6 comments

I thought about giving up the streak today. I didn't know if I had become obsessed with this streak, but I decided early in the day that if it didn't work, I was okay with giving up the streak. My day started bright and early again since I... Read more

Day 200-Not the workout I was hoping for. I did a quick 10 minute walk in between road trips and in the drizzle. We went to Omaha/Bellevue twice in search of possible SUVs to purchase. None ended up working out. Then hubby and I high tailed ... Read more

Days 198 & 199

Yesterday I ended up getting in a quick one mile walk. Work sent out an email that one of the evening pharmacists called in sick. I volunteered to fill the shift, so I hurried and got ready. Today's workout was 30 minutes on the ellipti... Read more

Days 196 & 197-Swim Team Update

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      6 comments

Monday and Tuesday were painful days for my workouts. My shins and calves were acting up Monday, so I only jogged one mile and walked a half mile. Tuesday my calves were ok, but my shins were acting up, but I managed two miles jogging and half... Read more

Day 195-Music or No Music for your workouts?

Sunday, June 10, 2012      8 comments

It is a beautiful, sunny morning here in western Iowa. It does feel like it's going to get hot later. I squeezed in a quick one mile walk before getting ready for church. My time was 18 minutes. I decided not to have my iPod with me. Someti... Read more

My day started nice with breakfast in bed. It's my 44th birthday. Hubby and Patrick (14) brought me eggs and coffee at 7:40 this morning. I was kind of in and out of sleep anyway, but it was a little earlier than I had planned. Then I rememb... Read more
