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
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
209-Walk with Hubby
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
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!
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 206 of 10 min of exercise/day
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!
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
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!
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
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?
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
Day 194-Hiking with the family
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!
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
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
