Day 211-Weights

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      4 comments

We had a swim meet out of town last night, so we got home pretty late. Our kids love this Mexican restaurant in the town we were in, so we had to eat out. It was a fun swim meet. Bridget swam her first two races. She did really well! I thin... Read more

Day 210-A good jog

Monday, June 25, 2012      5 comments

I wish I had gotten out earlier today to exercise when the clouds were still out. It was a little warm while I was jogging. My muscles and joints seem to really love the warmer weather for jogging. They feel great! It's a little harder on th... Read more

Sunday, June 24, 2012      7 comments

Hubby wanted me to give him credit for exercising today. We went for a walk together down at the park. It was nice to walk with him. I really need to calm down from last night. Work was very difficult. We had to make a chemo and needed help... Read more

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

Day 207-Awesome workout!

Friday, June 22, 2012      5 comments

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

Thursday, June 21, 2012      3 comments

I didn't get in the exercise I planned for today, but I did manage a 17 minute, one mile walk. I wanted to get a good jog in with the cooler weather, but I got busy cleaning out the girls' closet and figuring out which clothes fit Bridget and w... 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

Days 200-203 Again, busy beyond belief!

Monday, June 18, 2012      3 comments

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

Thursday, June 14, 2012      5 comments

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

Saturday, June 09, 2012      6 comments

Hubby wanted this morning to be a celebration day for my birthday too. He and the kids made breakfast again. Then the kids and I played the Wii for a while. After that we went to Hitchcock Nature Center north of Crescent for our first family ... Read more

Day 193-Happy Birthday to me!

Friday, June 08, 2012      8 comments

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

Day 192-I have a question for other Sparkers

Thursday, June 07, 2012      13 comments

Today I did 4.5 miles of walking/jogging: 0.25 mile walk, 4 mile jog, 0.25 mile walk. My jogging mile times were : 14:04, 14:29, 14:33, 14:08. I think that's pretty consistent. I still felt good out there, slow enough to keep going a... Read more
