Day 301 Hard to jog
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      8 comments

My body was rejecting me today, but I powered through. I decided to walk a little longer for warm up and cool down because of that. I walked down to the school and back for my warm up. That's a pretty good sized hill. Then I jogged 3 miles (... Read more

Sunday got off to a rocky start. Sean (7) started throwing up in the middle of the night. Hubby, Patrick (14 and Sean's roommate), and I were up cleaning him up, the bedding, and taking care of him for half the night. Patrick was such an awes... Read more

We decided to leave the twins home with our two oldest today while we went bike riding. The twins are learning on two wheels, and the training wheel bikes just don't cut it on a real bike ride. Our two oldest were up late last night because of... Read more

I've kept my streak of 10 min of exercise per day going. It was a tough one yesterday. I didn't sleep well and had to go to work at 2pm, so I took a nap after everyone was off to school and work. I almost ran out of time, but squeezed in a 10... Read more

I finally slept! I woke up pretty refreshed, kind of groggy from the supplements I take to help me sleep, but I felt pretty good. I got started early with laundry, good thing too. The old washer is on it's last leg. I think the random screws... Read more

I'm proud of myself today. Monday... enough said. Monday after I've worked seven of nine days... even worse. The day started with no one ready for school/work, no one able to find what they need (even hubby) and everyone turning to me. I did... Read more

Sunday, September 16, 2012      3 comments

Sunday is church day, so I don't have much time for a workout. I squeezed in a ten minute walk this morning before mass. Then we were off to church, then over to hubby's sister's house for lunch. All four of her kids recently had birthdays. ... Read more

I have had some real trouble sleeping lately, and work sure has not helped. Yesterday was an awful day at work. We were six technicians short in the afternoon, when I go in. The three we had were running their tails off, and we pharmacists tr... Read more

I enjoyed getting outside for a little bit today. I walked 0.25 mile, jogged 1 mile, and walked another 0.25mile. My total time was 24 minutes. I'm feeling really down today. I've had a lot of trouble sleeping over the last week or so, maybe... Read more

I did a quick ten minute walk yesterday before work. Lots of running around in the morning. My twelve year old daughter has bronchitis. We did a doctor's appointment then I ran around getting meds and supplies for her and for our nebulizer. ... Read more

Saturday was a beautiful day! My daughter, Mary (12), tried to jog with me. I welcome the company, but I know we go at different paces. I told her to jog ahead if she needed too. I repeat my 1.5 mile route to add more miles, so we never woul... Read more
Day 283-Jogging in the Rain
Friday, September 07, 2012      5 comments

I feel like I'm a die-hard jogger now. I actually jogged in the rain today. I got started before the rain hit, but I could tell I wouldn't be able to get a long distance in without getting wet. At first it was just a drizzle. The last mile w... Read more
Day 282-The day slipped away from me
Thursday, September 06, 2012      4 comments

Wow! I was tired from working seven out of nine days, the last shift until 11:30pm. Keep in mind I still get up at 6:30 am to get everyone out the door to school and work. Today one of my kids stayed home sick, so we lounged around together a... Read more

It's a beautiful day today! It was 81 degrees and sunny when I got outside to jog. I only had time for 1.5 miles today. That took me 20 minutes. So much to do and so little time. Got to go for now.... Read more
