Fun with numbers: 10-11-12 and my daughter turned 13

Friday, October 12, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday was my older daughter's birthday and I realized that the date was 10-11-12, and she turned 13. Pretty cool! I spent most of the day doing mom stuff. I'm trying to use my slow cookers more to make easier meals for my large family... Read more

Day 316-Another one mile jog

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

My knee is still improving. I took it easy for three weeks, mostly walking for my cardio, and that seemed to really help. I never made it to the chiro, just too busy, so I'm glad my knee started to feel better on its own. Today I couldn't... Read more

Sunday got busy with church in the morning, catechism classes after that, and then hurrying home so I could drive out to Underwood for a skating party for two of my kids. That is a really nice facility there, the UMBA hall. The kids had a blas... Read more

Days 310 & 311 & 312-Knee is improving

Sunday, October 07, 2012      6 comments

My knee is improving with taking it easy. I've also been really busy, so workouts have been shorter than I like. I'm sure that's helped my knee too. Thursday: I had to do a lot of shopping for a slumber party we planned last minute for... Read more

Days 308 & 309-Lucky to keep my streak alive!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      4 comments

Tuesday was a busy day. I had to be at work at 3pm, so I had the morning to get all my mom stuff done. I was getting dinner in the crockpot when hubby called and wanted to meet for lunch. That changed all my plans. I figured I'd get my walk ... Read more

Days 305, 306 & 307-Slow, but still moving!

Monday, October 01, 2012      3 comments

My right knee has been giving me trouble for a week now. I think it was the bike ride last Saturday. I had the baby carrier behind me, pulling supplies (water & snacks) which put extra pressure on my knees as we were riding. I may have the be... Read more

Days 303 & 304

Friday, September 28, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday I had a nice lunch with hubby in Omaha. We went to the sushi place at Aksarben Village. We had the Seattle roll (bakes salmon, asparagus, cream cheese, wrapped in rice) and shared our lunches so we each got to try two lunch entrees. ... Read more

Day 302-Took it easy today

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      3 comments

My knees are really feeling the workouts lately. Maybe the Zumba and basketball pushed them over the edge. I went for a walk today for my exercise. I ended up doing 1.7 miles in 31 minutes. Thanks for all the encouragement yesterday. ... Read more

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

Days 299 & 300 WooHoo!

Monday, September 24, 2012      4 comments

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

Day 298-Bike ride with part of the family

Saturday, September 22, 2012      6 comments

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

Day 297-Homecoming events

Friday, September 21, 2012      2 comments

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!

Thursday, September 20, 2012      6 comments

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!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      4 comments

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!

Monday, September 17, 2012      4 comments

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
