My daughter has whooping cough and us adults at home have been put on precautionary antibiotics, too. DD is doing really well--she'll be five days into her course and will possibly even be able to go back to school tomorrow.
My husband has ... Read more
Almost is better than nothing
It looks like I didn't quite hit 6000 steps yesterday. I thought I had! I would have totally done the last-minute sprints if I had realized!
Oh well. The larger idea of course is that I'm trying to do more than I was previously doing, and I... Read more
I have kept up with my goal of 6000 steps a day! Today we walked around the town fair and I got my steps in that way.... Read more
A little background: the puppy we adopted unfortunately brought scabies (mange) home with her. So we are in the process of treating her for mites, and she itches terribly. Night before last, she woke up frantic and itchy, so I ended up getting u... Read more
Second day in
I reset my Fitbit for a 6000-step goal, and I met it again today!
I took my dog out for a walk earlier. She's a puppy and not great on the leash yet. It rained this morning and so everything is muggy and there's a particularly bad smell out... Read more
Over a year?!
I'm trying not to get discouraged by the fact that my last blog here was over a year ago!
We live in Texas now and a lot of things have changed. But today I have a new goal: to train for a trip to the Grand Canyon.
Now, I'm not trainin... Read more
You guys, I'm sick. A cold's been going through our house, and while I think I had it before, I really have it now, if that makes any sense.
That's not to say I haven't been working out. I have! I finished the first week of Jessica Smith... Read more
I've got 45 days left of my exercise 10 minutes a day challenge. I doubled-up and joined a Jessica Smith challenge for the next 28 days. I'm hoping it'll be easier to have someone else telling me what to do.
I know that I feel better when I ... Read more
Day 43 - 48
I'm almost at the half-way point of my plan: 10 minutes of exercise for 100 days straight. I have slacked somewhat. I've been more dependent on walking (when I'd do whether or not I was exercising, things like walking to the park with my daugh... Read more
Day 41 and 42
Yesterday I took DD for a walk. Even though it's still hitting 90(!!!) most days, it does feel like it's breaking, like we're on the tail end of it. Maybe that's obvious, as fall is coming, but it's my first summer here, and the heat has felt ... Read more
Day 39 and 40
On Saturday, I walked up to a playground with my daughter.
Yesterday (my birthday!) we took a tour of Skyline Caverns, which involved probably about a mile of walking.
Today, I walked to the park and back, for the first time in ages. It is ... Read more
Day... uh-oh :P
I lost track of days. I'm... plodding along.
My dad and stepmom came in to town last Friday. I don't remember if I worked out that day (day 30). Saturday we took Jane to the park, which probably got us moving around at least ten minutes ... Read more
Today was the first time in a long time that I've used weights in a workout due to a wrist injury. It felt fine at the time (just cooling down now) but I will probably ice it just in case after I take a shower. I feel strong, so I hope I'm abl... Read more
Day 27 and 28
Yesterday I didn't do a "real" workout, I just counted my being busy and running around with my daughter. We went to a splashpark in the morning, stopped by the playground before we left, and then I feel like we did something in the afternoon t... Read more

Day 25 and 26
Yesterday we had to drop of DH's computer at the Apple store and the soonest appointment was in Georgretown. We'd never been before. The neighborhood was nice and looked like it'd be fun to walk around, had it not been so hot! I counted the wa... Read more
