Heel Spur slowing me down

Monday, August 29, 2011      5 comments

It's been hard staying motivated these last couple of weeks. I'm eating okay, with some deviation from my plan on occasion. I have to start being a positive influence on Hubby, and not let him be a bad influence on me. I think I'll enlist the... Read more

Empty house, mommy's ok

Friday, August 19, 2011      3 comments

Just a quick blog today. I kept myself busy yesterday (first day of school) and I did fine. It seemed the kids were home before I knew it. I got a ton of laundry done and started to organize my kitchen again after a summer of the kids ruling ... Read more

Empty house, sad mommy

Thursday, August 18, 2011      6 comments

I've been looking forward to, and dreading this day for a few weeks. It's the first day of school. Usually I'm cheering. We've all been there. The kids are squirrelly and bickering frequently. My house has the lived in all summer look. I k... Read more

Well, I've had to admit that my heel spurs are a problem. Combine that with the heat wave we've had lately, and I've decided to swim for my exercise. We have an Endless pool that we built a room around so we can use it year round. It's about... Read more

Yesterday it was 100 degrees, I had my six kids with me and we went to Omaha to do the dreaded school shopping. I might have tried Council Bluffs, but Hubby forgot some important papers and we had to also run those to him at work. I have to sa... Read more

Heel Spur?

Thursday, July 28, 2011      7 comments

Anyone out there have experience with heel spurs? I've had heel pain since last year when I started jogging. Some days worse than others, but manageable. On Monday, I did something stupid. I was trying to be super-fun mom after working six d... Read more

Orientation over!! Maybe I can be a pharmacist now!

Thursday, July 21, 2011      7 comments

Ugh!!! Two and a half days of orientation and computer based training have kind of drained my enthusiasm for my new job. I realize this is more the federal government's fault than anything else, but really, two and a half days!!! I learned an... Read more

Kids had ice cream, I had salad!

Thursday, July 14, 2011      7 comments

The last swim meet was last night. I wish I could tell you how it went. I volunteered to help line the kids up for their events. What chaos!! I don't even know all the kids names, and they all look the same in their team swimsuits and caps. ... Read more

July 7th

Thursday, July 07, 2011      6 comments

Well, I can tell I've lost a little endurance. I used to be able to do the elliptical for 50 minutes at 70 RPMs most of the time. Now I can manage 32 minutes, between 64-68 RPMs. That's ok, I'll get it back. I've also lost some str... Read more

Up a little, but back on track

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      3 comments

I had my pre-employment physical today, and my weight is up, but I expected that. I'm at 171.4 now, up five pounds from my lowest point of 166. May was very busy with the kids. June got crazy with studying for my exam and interviewing for the... Read more

Pharmacy goal, met!

I feel like I'm on day 1 again for SparkPeople. The last few months have been crazy with trying to get a new job, studying for my Iowa pharmacy law exam, vacation, floods, and as always, kids' activities. Well, I'm back, and I'm glad to be bac... Read more

May Update

Monday, May 23, 2011      5 comments

It's been a while since I was able to Spark, so I thought I'd give a short update. The kids' activities are just about wrapped up. Soccer, track, the play, and the music concerts are done. School wraps up this week. I honestly wish it were o... Read more
