Someone Took My Lunch Today!
Thursday, November 02, 2017      5 comments

Every day I take a Slim Fast and a bottle of water to school for my "lunch" since I don't actually get a lunch but have enough time between classes to drink something. Today, however, someone else took my slim fast before I got to it. It kind ... Read more
Cold Day
Friday, October 27, 2017      5 comments

It is rainy and cold today. Not just cool but down right cold. At least to me. Ever since menopause my upper body is cold. My arms especially, so I wear long sleeves as soon as it goes below 80 degrees out. I have taken to wearing a jacket ... Read more
Consistency is Key
Thursday, October 26, 2017      4 comments

This is my fourth day in a row of getting up early to exercise. I feel so much better and my step counts have been more consistent too. I would love to get back up to 20,000 day but I don't see how I can make that happen anymore when I have to... Read more
Start of the Cold
Tuesday, October 24, 2017      3 comments

The weather is turning cold and they turned on the heat at school. Wasn't expecting it since last week they were trying to freeze us and I took to wearing a pair of gloves to class (lime green) and heavy sweaters. Today I show up in another sw... Read more
Dirt Moving
Sunday, October 22, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday was a weird day for me. Just couldn't get motivated to do much besides clean the house. I swept and mopped every floor on the main level and it looks fantastic. DH even commented on it when he returned from his step-mom's funeral in... Read more
Cooking Day Came Early
Friday, October 20, 2017      2 comments

Coyotes were howling all last night and I got very little sleep. Just when I thought they were done (brief pause) they started up again. DH was blissfully snoring away through the whole thing. It sounds like we have a lot of coyotes in our ar... Read more
Early Morning Fun
Wednesday, October 18, 2017      5 comments

Since moving into our new house I have slept like the dead each evening. My head hits the pillow and I am out like a light until about 7AM the next day. Except today. Today I woke early for some reason and after laying in bed deciding if I sh... Read more

My sweet little boy and I have been spending time in the basement this week. He sits in a chair and watches TV while I get some steps in on the reboun... Read more
Changing Seasons, Changing Clothing
Sunday, October 15, 2017      2 comments

Swapped out my summer clothing today for fall/winter stuff. DH hauled up the plastic tubs up to the bedroom and I proceeded to fold up the summer things and try on the winter wear and hang in the closet. I put 3 sweaters instantly into the Goo... Read more
Dinner Out
Thursday, October 12, 2017      4 comments

Mandatory family dinner tonight. Older sister picked out Olive Garden which I never go to because of the sodium content of all their food. I spent a great deal of time last night going over their menu online and then again this morning too. W... Read more
Back to Running
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      3 comments

I was running pretty consistently for about 2 weeks but my knees were absolutely killing me. They even ached when I was laying in bed. Not good at all. So I stopped running for a week and they are back to normal. Today I will attempt running... Read more
Planting my new plants
Saturday, October 07, 2017      3 comments

Our yard finally (finally!) got our yard regraded this week. It looks wonderful, actually more like it did before they came and took all my topsoil off and made it all flat. We will still have to carry wheelbarrows full of dirt over next to th... Read more
Segways are Fun!
Sunday, October 01, 2017      7 comments

Older DD and I spent a day in Chicago in celebration of her birthday. Did an evening Segway tour which was, by far, the most fun I have ever had in Chicago! Would totally recommend to anyone. 3 hours of sightseeing fun and a long stopover in ... Read more
Too Much Heat
Saturday, September 23, 2017      2 comments

Thursday it was 97 outside and I only got to exercise in my basement. Just too hot for me. Friday we only had a half day of school because of the heat which really left me in a quandry - what to do with that extra time? Still too hot to do an... Read more
Day 7 !
Wednesday, September 20, 2017      4 comments

Seven days of running. I think my muscle are rebelling. Ever since I did the hil work on Monday my knees have been killing me. Last night I only ran a little and no hills at all. What is weird is they really ache when I sit down but not so m... Read more
