Grumble, Grumble...It's Monday

Monday, October 18, 2010      6 comments

Beep! Beep! 6:50 am rolls in way too quickly after getting to bed close to 1am. The Mondays after I put in 30 hours of work on the weekend are tough. The kitchen is a mess. The dishwasher half loaded with dirty dishes while the counter is s... Read more

Knee Recovering

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      5 comments

The swelling in my knee is coming down and I'm able to walk on it today. I've actually been able to put my weight on it all along, I just chose not to. I wanted to give it time to rest. It still looks a little swollen and bruised, so I am tak... Read more

Ouch!

Disc golf with the family, sounds fun doesn't it? So began our adventure yesterday, a trip to a disc golf course. The kids were having a blast, all except Bridget, who thought it should ALWAYS be her turn. We made it through 4 or 5 "holes", w... Read more

I've made some improvements

Thursday, October 07, 2010      2 comments

Last week I set out to get back on track and exercise more and eat better. I've stopped splurging and have kept my carbs in check. It was an amazing week for working out! I logged in 21.5 miles on foot, both jogging and walking. Some days I ... Read more

Midweek Update

Wednesday, September 29, 2010      4 comments

This has been an absolutely gorgeous week outside! I cannot believe the beautiful weather we are having here in Western Iowa. I wish it would be like this all year, but this is Iowa, not Hawaii. I'm an Air Force brat and lived in Hawaii as a ... Read more

Too Hard on Myself

Monday, September 27, 2010      5 comments

Until this morning, I saw last week as a failure. Part of that is hormonal. We women have monthly ups and downs, can't be helped. Part was the weather. It was a very dreary, rainy week. I also had a migraine on Thursday. That slowed me dow... Read more

Ups and Downs

Friday, September 24, 2010      2 comments

This sure has been a week of ups and downs. Monday was fantastic. The weather was beautiful and I had a fun day at the zoo with the kids. It was a down day for eating as I totally over indulged with ice cream. Tuesday was rainy and dreary in... Read more

Fun Day With the Kids at the Zoo

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      3 comments

After my long work weekend (31.5 hours in three days), I wasn't sure if I was happy that the kids had Monday off from school, teacher in-service day. I decided to suck it up and have a fun day with the kids. Since we haven't used our zoo pass ... Read more

Time for some "me" time

Thursday, September 16, 2010      3 comments

I've had a pretty busy week building up to my work weekend. Monday was the standard getting back into the school routine day. All the kids had homework, so I had to stay on top of them for that. Tuesday was playgroup for the twins. We went u... Read more

I Need to Vent!!!

Wednesday, September 15, 2010      10 comments

Today, my kids got out early from school. On days like today, I allow them to invite friends over. There is a neighborhood boy who's a 7th grader and a friend of my 7th grader. This boy "D", has been too rough on numerous occasions with my 3r... Read more

I officially completed Couch to 5K on Saturday! I was able to jog without the stroller and it was a nice cool morning. I jogged 3 miles in 43 minutes, which puts me faster than a 15 minute mile. I went out early today, another beautiful morni... Read more

I did it!! I actually did it!! I completed my first three mile jog; and I did it WITH the twins in their stroller! I still can't believe I've made it to week nine of C25K. When I'm walking, I'm at a 17-20 minute mile. When I'm jogging, I'm a... Read more

Half way there!

Thursday, September 02, 2010      8 comments

The overall goal I've set for myself is to lose 50 lbs before my 43rd birthday (June 8, 2011). That would put me at 150 lbs. I don't weigh myself frequently since I'm one of those "slowest losers". I went to my doctor's office and weighed in ... Read more

Size 16, Without the "W"

Friday, August 27, 2010      10 comments

I finally went shopping for new work pants. I only have one pair left that don't look like clown pants on me now. All those clown pants used to be tight on me! I went into CJ Banks like I normally do and tried on the 16W and a few 14W. A few... Read more

Rumor has it...

Thursday, August 26, 2010      7 comments

I live in a small town in Iowa. I love living here. It's interesting to me how word gets around quickly in small towns. I've been jogging for a few months now and have built up my distance to 2.5 miles of actual jogging with a warm up wa... Read more
