Monday, October 22, 2012      2 comments

Yes! You read that right! I got hubby outside two days straight for walks. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous, around 80 degrees. I was stuck working inside all day, so when I got home, I couldn't wait to get outside. I did my first 1.5 mile... Read more
Day 326-Gorgeous day for a walk
Saturday, October 20, 2012      3 comments

What a beautiful day! I was stuck inside working all day, but at least the pharmacy out here has a window. My Omaha job has no windows. Things seem to be going well at my small town job. I guess I'll find out after the fact if I messed anyth... Read more
Days 323-325 (Catching up a bit here)
Saturday, October 20, 2012      2 comments

It's been a busy week, but it always seems to be a busy week for me. I'm working some shifts in the hospital in my small town. I haven't worked there since February, so they had me come in on Wednesday to re-train. That went well, and so did ... Read more
Day 322

I had a rough time this morning since I didn't sleep well last night. I didn't really have time for a nap, but I took one anyway after the kids went off to school. That really ate into my workout time today. I went to the city to the weekly s... Read more
Day 321-Back to Basics!
Monday, October 15, 2012      4 comments

I finally was able to do a full workout routine today and I feel fabulous! I decided to go back to what I love: walking and jogging, weights (slightly modified from a previous routine), crunches and stretching. Since I haven't been consistent... Read more
Day 320-Nice walk with my son
Sunday, October 14, 2012      3 comments

I wan't able to go to church today, which depressed me a little bit. My seven year old son wasn't feeling well, so we stayed home together and rested. He fell asleep on me, and it was the best hug ever! Depressed feeling went away fast. When... Read more
Day 319-Those miles add up
Saturday, October 13, 2012      3 comments

I really didn't feel like I'd done so much working out this week, but I have to say that the miles do add up. I only walked one mile today, but at a good pace with my daughter, Mary. I enjoy having alone time with her. We did our mile in just... Read more
Fun with numbers: 10-11-12 and my daughter turned 13
Friday, October 12, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday was my older daughter's birthday and I realized that the date was 10-11-12, and she turned 13. Pretty cool! I spent most of the day doing mom stuff. I'm trying to use my slow cookers more to make easier meals for my large family... Read more
Day 316-Another one mile jog
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

My knee is still improving. I took it easy for three weeks, mostly walking for my cardio, and that seemed to really help. I never made it to the chiro, just too busy, so I'm glad my knee started to feel better on its own. Today I couldn't... Read more
Days 313, 314, & 315- I jogged a mile!
Tuesday, October 09, 2012      3 comments

Sunday got busy with church in the morning, catechism classes after that, and then hurrying home so I could drive out to Underwood for a skating party for two of my kids. That is a really nice facility there, the UMBA hall. The kids had a blas... Read more
Days 310 & 311 & 312-Knee is improving
Sunday, October 07, 2012      6 comments

My knee is improving with taking it easy. I've also been really busy, so workouts have been shorter than I like. I'm sure that's helped my knee too. Thursday: I had to do a lot of shopping for a slumber party we planned last minute for... Read more
Days 308 & 309-Lucky to keep my streak alive!
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      4 comments

Tuesday was a busy day. I had to be at work at 3pm, so I had the morning to get all my mom stuff done. I was getting dinner in the crockpot when hubby called and wanted to meet for lunch. That changed all my plans. I figured I'd get my walk ... Read more
Days 305, 306 & 307-Slow, but still moving!
Monday, October 01, 2012      3 comments

My right knee has been giving me trouble for a week now. I think it was the bike ride last Saturday. I had the baby carrier behind me, pulling supplies (water & snacks) which put extra pressure on my knees as we were riding. I may have the be... Read more
Days 303 & 304

Yesterday I had a nice lunch with hubby in Omaha. We went to the sushi place at Aksarben Village. We had the Seattle roll (bakes salmon, asparagus, cream cheese, wrapped in rice) and shared our lunches so we each got to try two lunch entrees. ... Read more
Day 302-Took it easy today
Wednesday, September 26, 2012      3 comments

My knees are really feeling the workouts lately. Maybe the Zumba and basketball pushed them over the edge. I went for a walk today for my exercise. I ended up doing 1.7 miles in 31 minutes. Thanks for all the encouragement yesterday. ... Read more
