I came about 10 miles short of last month's mileage goal for walking/jogging.
In several ways, I let life get in the way of reaching my goal. I also chose some extra family time and rest over my goal, but I made the choices myself.
I s... Read more
This was such a busy week. I was unable to keep up the mileage pace, but I tried to sneak in walks/jogs when I could. In order to make my 100 mile goal for the month of July, I'll need to averagee 3.6 miles for the next 5 days. (It's very helpfu... Read more
I'm having a debate with myself today. I logged just over 50 miles (walking or jogging) for the month of June and about the same for the month of May. Here it is only the 17th of July and I've already pretty much reached the same distance.

I often find it difficult to achieve a balance between spending time on my health and spending time in my vocation. This is a common problem for many people, so I know I'm not alone.

It's really fun to keep a running total of how many miles I've walked/jogged. It's motivating to see them add up.
It's a whole lot easier to put in the miles at this time of the year. What am I going to do when it's winter and we have weeks... Read more

--Eating at least 5 fruits and veggies and drinking 8 glasses of water--

--Counting Calories and Exercising--
These are two things I don't particularly enjoy. I do see how important they are to my overall health goals, though. That's why I'm willing to put in the time and effort.
Counting calories takes up ... Read more
When I woke up today, I really didn't feel like getting out for a walk/jog. I knew in my head that I wanted to finish April's Rise and Shine Challenge strong. My body didn't have the same idea.
Thankfully, dh reminded me that I had wanted t... Read more
I want to post this in a blog so I remember. As far as I know, this is the greatest number of steps I've taken in one day since I've been tracking.
I was exhausted by the end of the day, but today I'm up and ready to go again.
Have you seen the Disney movie Wall-E? He's a trash compactor whose job it is to clean up the Earth. He's solar-powered, so every morning he basks in the sun and recharges his battery.
I've felt so "recharged" these past couple of weeks sin... Read more
I'm thinking about doing SP's new challenge to rise and shine. We're asked to either get in some exercise first thing in the morning or get a good breakfast (or both).
Getting the breakfast would be easy (I've been challenging myself to do ... Read more
My kids and I were looking through the SparkPeople motivational quotes page. There's a lot of good stuff there, and my kids recognized that. We all printed off quotes that would help us in our work, school, healthy journey.
