Day 297-Homecoming events
I can't believe we lucked out to get such great weather for Homecoming. It's a little windy tonight, but beautiful outside. Last night was the Powder Puff game and activities. My oldest was in a "jelly bean pie" contest. He had to find ten jelly... Read more
Days 295 & 296-Do what you can, when you can!
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
Day 294-Beautiful day for a jog!
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
Day 293-Something is better than nothing!
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
Day 292-Another quick walk
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
Day 291-Quick walk
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
Days 288 & 289
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.

Days 285, 286 & 287
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
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
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
Day 281-Beautiful day-wish I had more time
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
Day 279+ 280
Monday almost got away from me. We were doing jobs around the house, and before I knew it, it was 7:30 in the evening. I walked one mile with my son Stevie (10). My time was 17:40. I figured since it was later, I didn't want to get my heart ... Read more
Day 278-Another quick mile
Good Morning everyone! I really enjoyed my one mile jog this morning. It is beautiful outside today. The thermometer read 68 degrees and the sun is shining bright. I didn't even take my iPod today. I just wanted to listen to the "quiet." M... Read more
Day 277-Quick one mile jog
I finally got outside when it wasn't too hot to jog. I did a quick one mile, 13:12 was my time. Afterward I was able to do some weights (bicep curls, tricep "curls", and delt presses). Hubby finally got the adjustable hand weights working aga... Read more
