    Been busy around here lately. I've been sticking to my no sugary goodness thing. Started drinking protein shakes. Feeling good about myself. Tomorrow, the hubs and I embark on a trip to see more of our state and hopefully get in a bunch of hiking as we visit various national parks. I'm super ex... Read more

    6/22/2017 10:21:42 AM, by RAME123

    I have been working to turn this thing around. Now I must admit, I AM NOT WORKING THIS SUMMER. Although I have committed to getting healthy, I am working, charting, planning and it is paying off. I hope that when school starts, I can have a plan in place to keep this ball rolling. I have a lon... Read more

    I have enjoyed working out by walking outside but today's stormy weather kept me inside. I tried SparkPeople videos out and got in some basic exercise. Planning on finishing my day by walking around inside until I at least get 10,000 steps on my FitBit.... Read more

  • Day 537 - Monday Workouts...

    6/19/2017 10:19:49 PM, by KALEWINE

    Made it to TEAM this morning. It was a tough workout. I feel like I'm being pushed too hard in my cardio. I did an active metabolic assessment which set up the zones I should be running in. But my heart rate doesn't stay even close to where they should be. Fortunately, my trainer sees that I'm ... Read more

  • Day 536 - Happy Father's Day!

    6/18/2017 10:13:53 PM, by KALEWINE

    I called my father earlier today to wish him a happy Father's Day. He was just about to start his workout, which he needed because he was a little grumpy. Tomorrow is back to the grind. I have my TEAM workout. And there's a possibility I may babysit. If not, I have a few chores that need to get... Read more

  • Enjoying family time..

    6/18/2017 8:19:58 PM, by RAME123

    I got up EARLY and did my workout before anyone else got up because I knew I did not want to miss any family time. It's been a good day. I've got to continue to make better decisions about exercising and eating. Hope you all have a great week! Let's get moving!... Read more

  • Day 533 - Pool Day!

    6/15/2017 10:45:47 PM, by KALEWINE

    I made it to Pilates this morning! Then it was talking to mom on the phone and a trip to walmart. After lunch, I got a text from a friend inviting me to the pool at her apartment complex. And I thought, "Gee, that sounds nice." So off I went. After the pool I did some cleaning and then it was d... Read more

  • Day 532 - More Babysitting

    6/14/2017 10:09:20 PM, by KALEWINE

    Once again, I babysat all day. We played in (around the pool), jumped on the trampoline, wrestled, had a pillow fight, and played soccer. I'm not really sure how to track that as a workout, but I definitely burned some calories, even without going to the gym. Still no hot water. The plumber ... Read more

  • Day 530 - Babysitting

    6/12/2017 8:40:51 PM, by KALEWINE

    I spent the day babysitting. We had a lot of fun running around in the sun. They played a little in their swimming pool and on the trampoline. It was a tiring (but it a good way) day. The plan is to go to the gym and walk on the treadmill just slow enough to be able to read. Then a shower a... Read more

  • Day 529 - No Hot Water

    6/11/2017 9:13:27 PM, by KALEWINE

    I woke up this morning to the sound of water running / dripping. Turns out our water heater was leaking from the bottom. So I turned off the water to the water heater. We already have someone scheduled to come out and look at it on Tuesday. I really hope they go ahead and give us a new water hea... Read more

    I've got the windows open and I'm enjoying the cool breeze. Made it to Pilates today! It was a good workout! Breezed through Walmart without any problems, but forgot the strawberries and bananas. :( Did 5 loads of laundry. It was a full day. 3 Things I'm Thankful For: 1. Open windows! ... Read more

  • Day 524 - Long Walk

    6/6/2017 9:12:31 PM, by KALEWINE

    Took a long walk this morning (6.69 miles). My feet were aching, but they feel better now. My knees aren't thrilled right now though. But I did do a lot of squats yesterday. Probably the combo of the 2 days is making my knees not happy. I foam rolled all over (including IT bands and quads) when... Read more

    6/5/2017 10:03:32 PM, by KALEWINE

    6/3/2017 11:08:25 PM, by KALEWINE

I did 2125 meters on the row machine in 10 minutes (previous 2105), 43 floors on the stair machine in 10 minutes (previous 34), and 0.86 miles on the treadmill in... Read more

  • Day 519 - Throwing the To Do List Out the Window

    6/1/2017 10:34:30 PM, by KALEWINE

    I had so many things that had piled up on my to do list, that I got a little overwhelmed today. So picked what really needed to be done, and threw the rest out the window. I feel much better having done that. In other news, I made it to Pilates this morning. It was a great workout! 3 Th... Read more

  • Day 517 - HOA Meeting

    5/30/2017 11:46:40 PM, by KALEWINE

    We attended an HOA meeting at which we were electing a new board this evening. It made me want to move out of the neighborhood. There is such animosity. Why can't people just be nice to one another rather than just assuming the worst? In other news, I went for a long walk today. It was 6.44... Read more
