I only did 10 minutes on the elliptical today. I got up too late to get outside. I have to reserve my energy today anyway. TOM hit, and today is my really bad day. To make things harder, we have a swim meet tonight in this awful heat. To ma... Read more

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

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

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

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
