Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days; I'm not sure where I've been. But, I'm back. Today, Bill and I were chaperones for Tyson's Kingergarten field trip to Camp Wartburg. It was a lot of fun. We did a pond study with our group. We went on a nature hike. The kids went canoeing (Tyson's first time in a canoe), and they played games. We were out there about 6 hours all together. I'm sunburned and I am wiped out. We came home and I laid down for a power nap and ended up sleeping for two hours. Who knew it could be so exhausting being a kid. I'm glad Bill got to take the day off and join us, too. I think Tyson liked having his dad there. After my nap, I went with my mother-in-law on a 3 mile walk. Her doctor told her that if she walked at least a mile a day that she could get off of her diabetes medication, so I am walking with her to help her stay motivated to walk. I've stayed within my calorie range Monday, Tuesday and today. I've also had really great workouts this week. I started a new strength training program (which I will talk about at a later time because I'm too tired right now to go into details) on Monday. I did yoga and HIIT yesterday. Oh, I almost forgot---I actually tried jogging/running yesterday. I haven't ran in over a year. It felt great; I felt stronger than I used to. I'm sore today, but I think I may have to gradually add back running to my routine. Well, off to bed.
