The tile guys will only be here for a half hour to finish the floor. Even though other people are doing the work, it's feels like I am because of the effort of living through the disruption.

Hi All, Today I did a half hour of strength training and then I walked the dogs for 45 minutes. I walked one for 10 minutes later. It is so hot in the 90s. I should not take the dogs out because of the heat and humidity until the sun goes down. It feels like a 100 degrees outside and it is hard to breathe. Best wishes, Linda from bean town emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Cleaning out the spare room closet and sorting through things. A lot is going off to charity.. it's amazing the things we keep for years!! Closet is now empty, carpet shampooed and it's ready to put a "few" things back into it.

Yesterday's triumph was to keep my mouth shut at the condo board meeting. For me that's every bit as tough as heavy labor.

Yesterday's triumph: ran 3 miles in HOT, HUMID, weather. I ran directly in the sun for most of it because as the hubby kept insisting, he had 'a route planned out'. I wanted to find the shaded streets which I normally do.
I think he is uninvited from any future runs. emoticon
The biggest triumph was that I only stopped to walk once!!! And that is to wait for him to catch up. I might be able to run a 5K nonstop by August! YEAH!

I sure know what it's like to live in Reno's!! Yes very disruptive to say the least. My kitchen needs a floor and I'll have to setup a temporary kitchen too whenever we get around to that job. There's lots of other things to do too, but we took a break as it does get stressful.

My daily triumph is I cleaned the carpets in the bedrooms with my Bissell. It works great, but still is a big job for me.

I know what you mean about the fridge; I had that problem to but at least it was all on the same level. However, the kitchen was worth it when it was finished.

Millifred, I've got my laundry room and 5th bedroom working as a "kitchen" but I am still up and down the stairs a thousand times to get to the fridge. At least it's good exercise. The big problem is my husband who is old and can't deal with disruption well. The stress has his blood sugar up, and he doesn't need to do anything but watch TV. Our remodel is dramatic, but easily organized. The kitchen opens into the garage, the two doors into the kitchen are covered with plastic, and they don't need to come into the house except to use the bathroom. It could have been a whole lot worse. I'm glad you got your AC back just in time for hot weather.

Nell, I can relate to the kitchen disruption having gone through it this Spring! I turned my utility room into a kitchen of sorts, doing most of my cooking in a slow cooker, electric frying pan and portable oven. Then this past month has been given over to putting a new roof on the older part of our house; as a result the AC couldn't keep the rooms beneath cool as the roof above was torn up. There were tools everywhere and then the dining room got tore up for new wiring! Yesterday everything was finally put pack to normal just in time for the predicted 101 degrees high temperature for today. What a relief. Home remodels are not only a lot of work, they are also a major inconvenience and lots of stress for us women.

Any triumph I have this month is with endurance of disruption without going off track. I try to keep my activities as close to normal as possible without a kitchen (which is the usual way in and out of the house) and without a garage. Yesterday: On Plan.

I haven't visited this thread in awhile, because I wasn't feeling the triumph. I have a blog out there about my calendar in which I award myself a gold star for each daily goal I meet for calories, reduced alcohol, and early bedtime. The first 7 days of the month are not very shiny, but I finally got 3 gold stars yesterday.

Nell, I wish he had documented what he saw at Reagan National, but he was in a panic at finding his new car gone.

Was out before 6 a.m. to get my run in before the heat and humidity got too bad. It wasn't my most pleasant run; I had hoped to get 7 to 8 miles in, but ended up at 6. My heart rate was getting too high running in the heat, so I packed it in at 6. I'm happy I got that in:)

My triumph yesterday was hubby and I spent 4 hours clearing and burning brush. Hard work, but we made a huge dent in it - many little "critters" who had made homes next to our garden are now looking for a new place to live, hopefully far away!

Today my son and I rolled up the living room rug and moved all the kitchen furniture to the living room. Most of the cabinets are empty and the good knobs removed. I just fed the cats wet food in the new location. They've been getting used to water and dry food there for a couple of weeks.

One more day to finish it up!

Celia, which airport was that? I hope he got photographic proof of the washed out signs and the condition of the car following the tow. A quick trip to small claims court might get reimbursement for the tow, but only if he can document all of it.

Yesterday was about what I gave up: my yoga class, the last one of the session, and the sessions end with a class focused on restorative poses, so I really missed out. However, I felt DH needed me more, as he had a colossally bad day, returning from a trip to find his car towed from his airport employee lot in which rain had pretty much obliterated all the paper towing signs. And yet the airport jerks treated him like a criminal, and he hosed his uniform just getting the car from the crappy, muddy impound lot after hours of misdirection on the part of the airport and the towing company. On top of it all, they left the window cracked open in the rain, and the car was full of mosquitoes. Boo, Reagan National Airport!

I was up early and out the door. Met a fellow Sparker at Dreamy Draw Park at 5:45 a.m. for what was intended to be a 1 hour (max) hike. By mutual agreement, we went for 95 minutes, 4.1 mile. Impressive, considering our 5:45 a.m. starting temperature was 91 degrees (F). Don't worry, we both hydrated before starting and each had over 3 liters of water with us.

I got all the scrap wood down from the attic yesterday. It was a hard job, lots of heavy, long boards that I had to lift while bending double. I have no idea how my husband got it all up there, but he is no longer capable of moving around in the attic. Today he should be able to help me load it all into my car to take to the dump tomorrow. I woke up with a sore back so need to back off the weight for awhile.

Survived 119 degree (F) high temperature... That in itself is a triumph. Yet that's not all....

walked the hounds at 5:30 a.m. trying to beat the heat. Yah. It was only 91 degrees (F).
mowed the yard, finishing at 8:05 a.m., when the temp was (only) 98 degrees (F).

Even bigger though, I beat last month's exercise minutes high of 1,501 and there is still one more day to exercise and a short hike is scheduled for 5:45 a.m.!

While packing boxes I am finding and tossing a LOT of stuff I'd forgotten I'd had and giving away stuff I haven't used in a long time. Even though I'll end up with the same amount of cabinet space after the reno as before, I will have a LOT more room! The one downside to being in the same house for a long time is that it's easy to let the years go by without sorting and eliminating extras. They just get shoved to the back, out of sight and out of mind, but still taking up valuable space.

Tennis with hubby yesterday. We were awful and hysterical but it was fun! Then I ran for 2.5 miles in that horrible humidity Yuk! Did a little bit of ab work after that, finished off by a healthy salad.
Onward we go! Have a great day everyone!

45 minutes of cardio and ST videos on SP. That is an accomplishment for me because I never give much thought to ST (and I know I should). I am trying to get better at it.

I'll be having little triumphs as I load out my kitchen in preparation for the reno. It's a little by little job, and like all jobs like this, it will take longer than I think it will because I have more stuff than I think I do.

It's really yesterday's triumph since today has just started - but I went shopping, tried on lots of pretty clothes that fit (!!!) but didn't have to buy any of them. (Already have a ton of clothes). So pleased that I didn't transfer my former over-eating to present day over-shopping. whoop whoop.

I finally got all of the new plants into the ground--with so much rain the ground has been too muddy, or active rain when I have time to work. Clouds here in Chicago today, but only a two minute sprinkle. I planted some divided daylilies, creeping thyme, epimedium, hostas, coleus, and put some amaryllis bulbs out for the summer too. All that digging is today's good exercise.

I repeated Tuesday's success, by running for a mile without slowing to a walk. This is very exciting for me, a 55-y.o. who never ran.

My new fitness goal is to run for an entire 5k. I'll register for one that occurs in cooler weather, so that gives me the summer to up my distance gradually. I've participated in a couple 5ks, the first was all walking, the second was predominantly walking, with some running.

I love this topic!!! Can I do two days worth of triumphs???
Yesterday I hiked a wonderful mountain in the world's most beautiful national park-we hiked for over 4 hours/had salad and broiled seafood sitting outside near mountains and a lake-a magical day.
Today rode bikes with siblings and a nephew and had a grand time!!!
Life seems to be full of triumphs more & more!!!!!!
Congrats to all who triumph!

Nice job Nancy!

I want a snack but I don't need one. I just ate a filling, healthy salad with some protein in there. I am not hungry, tired or upset. I just want junk food.

So I made a cup of green tea, reading blogs to get past the moment and now that I've posted here, I know I will not go for the junk.

For several reasons, I couldn't run outside today and was dreading the "dreadmill". Kept putting it off, but finally popped a movie in the VCR (yep, we still have one) and got in my hour. Then an hour weeding the garden.

Now for a shower!
