A New Activity: Twin Aerobics

Thursday, May 13, 2010      10 comments

Yesterday, I was reading Spark articles, getting as many points as I could while eating my lunch. I read advice on selecting workout DVDs. One thing suggested was to use Netflix and try out DVDs before putting any real money toward them. <... Read more

I haven't blogged since last Thursday, so I thought I'd give an update. The kids did great this weekend. Stevie had his First Communion, and Mary and Pat had their Confirmation. We had a fun party afterward to celebrate. Boy! Can Brian smoke... Read more

I was anxious for yesterday to arrive. It's May, time to weigh again. I knew I would be right by my doc's office, so I used the same scale as the previous few months. The good news is that it went down. The kind of depressing news is that I'... Read more

Hubby's coming around!!

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      8 comments

I think Brian is making a real effort now!!! We went on a walk yesterday evening. It was so nice to walk with him. I was a little tired, I had already walked 2.5 miles earlier. I usually walk a lot faster than him. We were at the same level... Read more

Monday, May 03, 2010      8 comments

I just finished my work weekend. I work 10.5 hour shifts in a hospital pharmacy, Fri, Sat and Sun. Not a bad weekend. Some weekends are insane busy and I feel like quitting on the spot. This was a good paced weekend, busy enough to stay awak... Read more

Party Weekend

Monday, April 26, 2010      5 comments

I knew I wouldn't be perfect this weekend. With two grown-up nights out planned, I figured my eating (and drinking) wouldn't be the best. I really didn't do too bad for taking a break. Friday morning, I got a full workout in. That made... Read more

Kid quote for the day

Friday, April 23, 2010      6 comments

I'm sitting here on Spark People logging in my exercise for the day. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical, then the weight machine and stretching. I definitely look like I just worked out. My four-year old twins were asking why their big brothe... Read more

I Did It!

Thursday, April 22, 2010      15 comments

I've been avoiding the long walk since I started on Spark People. I finally tackled it today. It's three miles, with some hard hills. I've avoided it because I usually can't walk without taking the twins, my four year old twins that together ... Read more

My Husband's Revelation

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      10 comments

Half way through my work weekend, I remembered that Brian went to the doctor on Friday. That means he HAD to step on a scale. I had asked him earlier in the week what he thought his weight was. He said 265, I was estimating at least 275. We... Read more

Weekend Update

Monday, April 19, 2010      7 comments

It was an interesting weekend, to say the least. Friday was an okay evening at work. Saturday was kind of weird. Our computer system got an "update" that took six hours. Since we knew about it ahead of time, we were pretty organized. Our te... Read more

Thank you everyone for your concerns about my headaches. I have a history of migraines, usually only when I'm pregnant (nope, not pregnant now). These headaches lately have been different, not full blown migraines, no aura. I keep a log of my... Read more

We finally got all the bikes repaired and in working order on Friday. Loaded them up in our trailer and headed out Saturday. We first went to Harlan for Stevie's (8y/o) soccer game. The weather was kind of weird all day. It was warm when we... Read more
