Day 345 of 10 min of exercise/day (522 miles on foot this year)
It's another sunny day here in western Iowa, so I went outside for my workout. I was able to get in a longer walk/jog since I don't have to work tonight. I went four miles in 67 minutes: 0.5 mile walk, 0.75 mile jog, 0.75 mile walk, 1 mile jo... Read more
It's another sunny day here in Iowa. It's also a little less windy than yesterday. I went for a walk/jog today. Thankfully, my shins felt great and there were no ownerless dogs to bother me on my trek.
0.5 mile walk/0.75 mile jog/0.25 mi... Read more
Day 343-WooHoo! Level 16 trophy!
Today has been a great day so far! I actually slept through the night. I believe it was seven straight hours of sleep. That never happens. I usually wake up at least once. I stayed up, no nap, and got a lot of things done: the checkbook, a... Read more
Day 342 and the play
Part of what made last week so busy was that my two oldest boys, Mikey (16) and Patrick (14) were both in the high school play, "Life with Father." Mikey only had a cameo appearance as Dr. Somers. Patrick played Whitney, the son who was studyi... Read more
Days 338-341 Yes, my streak is still going, barely!
338-Thursday, Nov 1st-This was a very busy day. After staying up late for Halloween the night before, we had work and school for everyone. Then after work I took a quick ten minute walk before rushing to get ready for church. November 1st is ... Read more
Day 337-Laundry back up
I've got laundry issues again! Monday we thought the dryer wasn't working. It's not even 2 years old and there was no heat in it. We almost ordered another dryer, when we discovered it was an electrical problem. The outlet pulled out with th... Read more
Day 336-Check out yesterday's blog
Please check out yesterday's blog. I uploaded a picture, which I don't frequently do.
My computer is extremely weird right now. I did 30 min on the elliptical today. Will catch up more tomorrow.... Read more
Days 334 & 335 and The Great Pumpkin!
Busy work weekend again, and lots of kids' activities. We also had mass yesterday, so I only was able to get a 10 min walk done. It was nice, though, to get some sun before heading to work under the fluorescent lights of the pharmacy. We don'... Read more
Days 332 & 333
Day 332-Ran late getting ready for work, so I only squeezed in 10 min on the elliptical. I'm glad I only did that much. Work was 10.5 straight hours of stress.
Day 333- I got an earlier start today so I went for a 1.5 mile walk with my ... Read more
Day 331-I'm Crazy!
I started to run out of time again to get my workout done, so I decided to go for a walk instead of doing the elliptical. If I walk, I usually don't sweat too much and wouldn't need a shower before picking up the kids from school. I was right.... Read more
Too much mom stuff to catch up and not enough time to do it! I only had time for 10 minutes on the elliptical today. It felt difficult at first, but at the end I wished I had more time. I could have done at least 30 minutes on it. Tomorrow I... Read more
It's a cloudy, kind of foggy day here in my small town. I decided to get outside anyway for a jog. It boosts my spirits to get outside, even on cloudy days, since I've been working so many hours lately. My shins gave me trouble again, so I di... Read more
Days 327 & 328 Walks with hubby!
Yes! You read that right! I got hubby outside two days straight for walks. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous, around 80 degrees. I was stuck working inside all day, so when I got home, I couldn't wait to get outside. I did my first 1.5 mile... Read more
Day 326-Gorgeous day for a walk
What a beautiful day! I was stuck inside working all day, but at least the pharmacy out here has a window. My Omaha job has no windows. Things seem to be going well at my small town job. I guess I'll find out after the fact if I messed anyth... Read more
Days 323-325 (Catching up a bit here)
It's been a busy week, but it always seems to be a busy week for me. I'm working some shifts in the hospital in my small town. I haven't worked there since February, so they had me come in on Wednesday to re-train. That went well, and so did ... Read more
