Daily 10: Barre Workout
Today started late last night. Jane doesn't usually wake up during the night anymore, and when she does, she just cries for a few moments and gets herself back to sleep. Last night, though, she woke up SCREAMING, so I went in to comfort her. ... Read more
Daily 10: Crunchless Core Video
Today I did Coach Nicole's crunchless core video. All the while, Jane was upstairs, not settling down for her nap, which is never fun to hear. It seems like maybe she is asleep now.
I had wanted to do a more intense workout, but Jane woke... Read more
Daily 10: A Family Walk
It's probably in the 50s here today, so after Jane's nap we all went for a walk. My husband wore Jane in her carrying pack, but if I'd been thinking, I could have worn her for an extra 25 pound challenge! It was a leisurely walk and it was rea... Read more
Daily 10: Walking in place
Not the most challenging workout. But with the recovery of the day, it was better than nothing!
Jane had a follow-up appointment this afternoon, which was mostly useless because she seems much better. (Good to have gone, though, of course... Read more
Update on Jane
Sorry for the mystery last night but I was posting with one hand, while brushing my teeth, after getting back from the ER. At dinner last night, Jane wasn't eating well, but we thought she was just being picky. Then when she get up, she threw ... Read more
Daily 10: A Good Excuse
She is fine now, but we took our daughter to the ER tonight. I did not get a workout in. It's been a long night and I will post more tomorrow.... Read more
Daily 10: An Extended Dog Walk
Today is pretty mild out, though we're supposed to start getting a wintry mix this evening, so I decided I would walk my dog when I got home from work, before I needed to start dinner.
It started out regularly enough, but then I heard a w... Read more
Daily 10: Cardio Kickboxing
I often return to Coach Nicole's ten-minute cardio kickboxing. It still makes me sweat, and I prefer it to a lot of the other quick cardio videos that seem to feature a lot of jumping (hard on my knees).
As I was getting ready to lay Jane ... Read more
Daily 10: At the park
My husband and I took Jane to the park today. I got at least ten minutes in of running around, doing some jumping jacks on the nice, bouncy playground surface, and lifting my 25-pound daughter up to the slide over and over!
The park even h... Read more
Daily 10: Yoga
(I think this is a good way to keep Sparkfriends up to date on my daily ten minutes of exercise, but that doesn't mean I won't write personal messages elsewhere too!)
I just finished a 28-minute yoga video, a podcast from Yoga Today. I've ... Read more
Do this with me
I can't find the graphic or button or whatever it was, the "I'm Looking for a Sparkbuddy!" that I've seen on pages before. But I am looking!
I've decided to go WAY back to basics, and instead of even trying to meet four simple streaks, I'm... Read more
I need to commit to something. I just bought a pair of jeans. They fit, but they are tight. They are what I'd refer to as "good-day" jeans. I suspect many of you know what I mean. I like the way they look, but if I put on *any* weight, they... Read more
Down (complaints ahead)
I'm feeling incredibly down right now. I sometimes have moments where I feel like I'm useless and have nothing to offer, and this is one of those times. I think about my college degree, and how it hasn't gotten me anywhere. I majored in Engli... Read more
I was offered another job. It's at a lower rate than before, with two fewer hours, so it will definitely affect our bottom line. But it is something! Plus, I think I'll like this work much more than my last job, which is important, as I'm fin... Read more
Really, it's a firing, but I think they're intentionally "laying me off" so I can get unemployment. So that's nice.
I'll be here until the 25th, and then I really don't know what will happen. Jane will have to be pulled out of daycare a... Read more
