Day 260-Last day of summer for the kids
Well, tomorrow is finally the first day of school. I feel like we've been preparing for weeks now. We've done way too much shopping, and I haven't found a single thing for myself. I don't know if I'm too picky but I can't find any clothes for... Read more
Sunday: I did a walk with four of my kids. We had to go pretty slow since we had the twins with us. We went 1.5 miles in 40 minutes.
Monday: I did mall walking and did one mile in 20 minutes. Lots of shopping done though.
Tuesday:... Read more
I got another walk in yesterday, 1.5 miles in 33 minutes. That's pretty slow for me, but I've had some aches and pains in my feet and side. I was also worn out from shopping for kids' clothes. We did really well, and shopped in some stores I ... Read more
Day 255-Family exercise day
We drove up to Sioux City today and used our favorite bike trail. We took Hwy 75 on the Nebraska side up north. That is a very scenic drive. We were way up on the bluffs for so much of the trip. There's also a beautiful scenic overlook, some... Read more
Day 254- Third day straight of a long walk
I got my workout done in the evening again. This time I walked down to the school playground with the kids. They played while I walked around the tennis courts. I was going at a good pace. I estimate about an 18 minute mile. My total walkin... Read more
Day 253- Another 3 mile walk
I got in another three mile walk today, this time with one of my best friends. It's always nice to catch up with her. I also had an active day earlier. The kids and I had planned to meet my sister-in-law and her kids at our city pool. Right ... Read more
Day 252- Good paced walk today
I walked by myself today, which means I went at my pace, not hubby's. I walked a total of 3 miles in 52 minutes. That's just over 17.5 minutes per mile. I'm sweating and I feel like I got my heart rate up, so today was a very successful worko... Read more
I got outside tonight with hubby and went for a 30 minute walk. He quit around 25 minutes, but I really wanted to get 30 in. I hope to get out earlier tomorrow to maybe even get more walking minutes done.
Today was a catch up day at hom... Read more

Days 247 & 248; I've had to slow down again!
I had a fantastic workout on day 246, my previous blog, 2 mile jog. I started feeling like I was finally going to start making progress again. I even had a decent night at work afterward, but got a stomach ache that felt like bad gas toward th... Read more
Day 246- I've Officially Made it Across Iowa!
I wish I had more time yesterday to get a longer jog in, but I was glad I started jogging again. Today I continued that trend, and jogged almost two miles. The first 1/8 mile was walking and I got the two miles done in 27:40, that's 13:50 each... Read more
Day 245- Yes! I can still jog a mile in 13 minutes!
I haven't jogged much lately due to my busy work schedule, camping, and the intense heat here in Iowa. Today I decided to try a quick jog. I warmed up with a 1/8 mile walk and then jogged the rest of the mile. I came in with a time of 13:19, a... Read more
Day 244 Fantastic news
One of my twins, Sean, had an MRI on Thursday. There was a very small chance he had something wrong in his brain, causing visual disturbances. The scan came back clear. He's perfectly healthy! This is the best news I have ever gotten.

Days 242 & 243 My Babies are Seven today
Yesterday we took it easy. We've had a cold going through the family, so a couple of the kids didn't feel so good. I also have been on the go with work, camping, and mom stuff, so I really needed a relaxing day. I went for a walk in the eveni... Read more
Days 240 & 241 More food victories
I'm still doing good with exercise. Yesterday had to be a slow day (my worst day of TOM). I got at least 10, maybe 15 minutes walking in with hubby. Today, I'm feeling much stronger, so I did 30 minutes on the elliptical. I changed it up, th... Read more
