Nervous! Nervous! Nervous!
When I was offered the opportunity to substitute for water aerobics instructors at the REC center, I thought "GREAT! This will give me a chance to ease into it, since I haven't taught in 17 years. I can take some of the other instructor's classe... Read more
I went with the partner guy to work out tonight at the REC center. We went to one of the empty studios upstairs and I played with my hoops while he tried some stuff with a new agility ladder he bought (boy am I glad I'm not his client!) He broug... Read more
Why the negativity?
I was noticing today, as I was reading sparkpeople, that there is a tendency by some people to be negative. Or at least to share their negativity with others. Silly things like on a slideshow of dessert ideas, someone felt it necessary to comm... Read more
for 2 1/2/ hours. Great workout...but my feet aren't terribly happy with me. The boots that they rent you with the cross country skis aren't always the best for your feet. I felt the one on my right foot rubbing on my heel, so I retied my boot t... Read more
I'm so excited! I'm registered to take a hoopnotica instructor training! It's in February, and I can't wait! As luck would have it, it's RIGHT by my house, too...that's so easy I can't even believe it!
In other news, it's finally snowing.... Read more
Didn't run today.
We started to, but the wind was so cold, and so strong, it felt like I was out there in a tank top and shorts. It just didn't seem worth it, so we gave up for today. I'm still really hoping for more snow by Saturday afternoon, so we can cross co... Read more
On track, but tired.
Worked quite a bit today, and also got my run in, so I'm just a little beat tonight. Staying on track pretty well, after a couple of days of not doing so great on the weekend.
The temp dropped today, from mid 50s to maybe 30 degrees tops.... Read more
No idea what to write, but I feel like I should. Soooo...what do I want to blog about?
I ran today. Yay! First time since last wednesday.
I had a tough couple days, food wise, but today seems to be on track. Yay for getting back on tra... Read more
It finally started snowing...
and I haven't run since...LOL. Got a little treadmill time in last night, but I HATE running on a treadmill, so I just walked as fast as I could and played with the incline a bit. I think I still got an okay workout, but it's not the same. I hu... Read more
News I forgot to mention..and 21 years ago today.
First of all, 21 years ago today, I became a first time mom. How is it even possible that it was THAT long ago? Time flies when you're raising kids, eh? My only daughter is 21 today, a mom herself, and a sweet, wonderful person. I'm so grateful... Read more
Some days are tougher than others.
Ran this morning, stayed on track all day, but now I'm just sitting here, thinking of what I wish I could snack on, and feeling like I just don't care. I know the feeling will go away, and just typing this out is helping..but...blah. Just. Blah.... Read more
Took a rest day today, since I was starting to have a little problem with my left hip, the past couple days. I did have a couple clients today, and walked to the kids bus stops to pick them up, so I didn't feel totally sluglike, but it was nice ... Read more
I actually enjoy running!
How is that possible?
Ran 3 miles yesterday, and 5 today. Today's run was pretty tough, I had lots of aches and pains, and was moving a little slow, but when we finished, I heard myself suggesting we start upping our mileage. Me? Really? ... Read more
Yesterday consisted of driving 3 hours, eating lunch, doing four massage in a row, eating dinner, then driving 3 hours back home. It was a lot more fun than it sounds, but a bit tiring.
Today I went to the grocery store, did some laundry, ... Read more
Finally skipped a day running, but I spent 50 minutes hooping, so it was still a good fitness day. I have to take tomorrow off, because I'm traveling all day, so I'm going to concentrate on eating healthy while traveling instead. I'm so gratef... Read more
