What a busy Friday it was! I managed to get a workout in to keep my streak going, but I had lots of picking up to do around the house to get it ready for Stevie's party. I also had to get some groceries and party gifts and be sure I was at the... Read more

Wow! I really overdid it yesterday. Hubby came to my rescue and warmed up my dinner for me while I guzzled some water. I've learned a valuable lesson, when TOM hits hard, take it easy on the workout! I'm proud of myself, however. I remember... Read more

I did 60 minutes on the elliptical today, all at one time, not divided like I normally do. I also did weights, and a non-crunch ab routine. I hope to stretch later. I hate these frigid temps! I want our unseasonably warm weather back. I... Read more

Today I rested all morning. Sean stayed home sick today, so I hugged him up. I also didn't sleep well all weekend. I rarely do when I'm working. So at 2pm today I rushed to get my workout in before the rest of the kids came home from school.... Read more

Taking a little break at work to post a quick blog. It's been a busy weekend here, but I'm making myself take breaks. I just took a long walk to the exit door to the employee parking lot (opposite side of the facility than where I work). I wa... Read more

Well, I've been exhausted today. I didn't sleep well. Politics always bothers me, and last night was our caucus night. I know I need to get involved, I just have to stop obsessing over it. I stayed up way too late to see the results, and th... Read more
