Monday, June 28, 2010      8 comments

Although this story has a happy ending (well, middle actually, I've got more weight to lose), it's been a frustrating ten days to this point. Ten days ago we went camping for the weekend. I was active, but ate horribly. The last few times... Read more

Jellystone Campground, Sioux Falls, SD

Monday, June 21, 2010      5 comments

Well, we did it. We took our first camping trip of the summer up to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Some people up there were surprised that Sioux Falls was our destination. I guess it's the spring board to go to Mount Rushmore. We got up there ... Read more

Family Couch to 5K

Monday, June 14, 2010      6 comments

I started back with "couch to 5K" on Saturday. I bought heel cushions to help my feet, and I've been walking to keep in shape since I started having heel pain. My daughter Mary (10) tried to come with me. She had a hard time since she didn't ... Read more

A week ago, the kids made a big deal about Daddy's birthday. We had a perfect day with a bike ride up in Sioux City. Yesterday, the kids came in to wake me up and were surprised when I mentioned it was my birthday. I had orders to stay in bed... Read more

Sore Heel

Thursday, June 03, 2010      10 comments

Okay, I'm bummed. My heel started bugging me this week, it may have been Tuesday when I noticed. It still bothered me some on Wednesday, but I thought not so bad. That was until I had done 2 miles of walking/jogging (C25K week 2, day 2) and s... Read more

Daily Spark Inspired Me

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      7 comments

Yesterday I read the Daily Spark Blogs, "Think You're Too Big to Run..." parts one and two. These have inspired me to step it up a little with my walks. I've been wondering if I'm burning enough energy with my walks. Already, I've tried some ... Read more

Brian's home safe and sound from his trip to Phoenix. We spent his first day back shopping for a dresser for my oldest daughter. We've spent the last couple of years rearranging where the kids sleep. We finally got our third bunk bed in the f... Read more

Brian made it home safe and sound late last night. I think it was around midnight. I stayed up for him, watching too much TV. It kept me awake, though. His trip went well and he made some good business contacts. He also brought us some pres... Read more

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      6 comments

I know that sounds crazy, me lonely. I have six kids. How on Earth can I be lonely? I'm feeling much better. I was actually feeling better from the stomach bug yesterday. The weather is beautiful, so I went for a walk (2.2 miles), an... Read more

I'm Too Busy to be Sick!!!

Monday, May 17, 2010      7 comments

This weekend wasn't so bad. I worked Friday through Sunday, but really enjoyed the people I worked with. It got busy at times and slow at times. The usual strange orders that pop up (I'm a hospital pharmacist), but nothing to overwhelm me. I... Read more

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
