Amy, glad your son is helping keep you on track with the running. I have walked, off and on, for most of my adult life and my DH was never interested in walking with me. After I got seriously ill this past Nov/Dec, things changed. Maybe it was my close call, I don't know! But when I was able to start back walking, after I had worked up to going around the block, he started walking with me. Now I walk 3 or 4 miles a day and although I sometimes go alone, when I feel the need to walk a bit slower due to arthritis, when I go with him he pushes my speed up, which is a good thing. Even if I go alone, he'll usually join me somewhere in my walk (Find My Friends app helps him locate where I am in) and walk with me for a bit before we part ways again. It is helpful and fun to have a walking partner you can count on!

I have some awesome people in my life: Friends, Family, & SparkPeople
My son is turning into one of best motivators/trainers/running partners. I always plan on running one day each weekend (to get at least 2 runs in each week) and didn’t get to do this on Saturday due to issues with our landlord (won’t get into this). I was in the process of letting the Lazies win yesterday...... until Blake came into my room to get me up. He has started running with me twice a week. He cheers me on/ pushes me, high-fives me along the way, & trots alongside me. (I love this time with him)
I am so glad that my BFF/Wednesday running partner encouraged him to start coming.


Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

NewMe, I call that a good week. Whenever we follow the 80/20 rule is a good day. Keep up the good work. Yes Amy, I am making progress with my weekends "dessert issues" and I am so thankful. emoticon

Each day is a great new start for whatever you need it to be. Embrace each day.

I ran a full mile without stopping last night, now my running partner expects me to do it everytime.

It was great; Blake gave me a goal to work on - I said that I would do 2.5 laps that (which would be a little over 1/2 mile); I got there and decided to try for 3 laps- he was at the designed spots cheering me on & giving me "high fives". when I got to my 3 lap mark, my friend joined me & pushed me to try one more. I think she & Blake talked and made this plan - LOL (we usually start out together & meet back up to cool down - she is usually 1/2 - 1 lap ahead of me) But I was so proud of myself and almost cried.

Ready to try it again on Saturday

hugs to all

My vacation was busy -- Monday both boys had appointments
Tuesday - Blake volunteered at Humane Society to start his Citizenship in Community Merit Badge (needs total of 8 hours - got 2.5 hours)
Wednesday - I worked in another department (won't do this again- BORING & sassy coworker)
Thursday - Blake volunteered at Humane Society again (got another 2.5 hours - just gotta go back one more day but he wants to start going once a month). Then Blake went help work on an Eagle Scout Service Project (needs 6 hours of this for his next rank - got 3 hours here) went for my weekly run with my BFF - Blake decided to start running with us.
Friday - went back to Surgery department (other lady was out for a funeral and docs weren't in office, so I just answered phones and trained new employee)
Saturday - Blake went back to work on Eagle Project (got all his hours needed); I went for a great run at the park
Sunday - spend the day with my parents. Hubby and Adam left for Summer Camp

They decided to come home last night - got in at midnight. Hubby said that the boys were exhausted and nothing was happening today so they left after closing campfire. Left all my guys sleeping this morning

Got is a fast walk yesterday evening. Waiting until the sun is going down helps a lot with the heat! I signed up for Pilates: one on one instruction and start Friday. I had some in physical therapy and it was a big help with my back/neck/hip issues so I need to continue with it. Am looking forward to that.

I seem to be doing better since I cut the granola cereal out of my diet! Today was a wash, spent all afternoon in bed napping and resting: headache. Sigh, it's getting to be once a week. At least I can go to bed and rest, back when I was still teaching school those days were a misery and I was also glad I'm currently not teaching piano, as I knew the headache had settled in for the afternoon. I think the Tramadol and resting helped as I'm back to normal and hoping for a good walk this evening. Wishing the temps were lower, though!

That is the way to go Marcia, find out what foods work against you and steer clear of them. emoticon .

Ok, I have not been doing well on the weekends with desserts so this weekend, I have a plan.

Eat 1/2 half of whatever I am selecting and maybe, just maybe I can cut back because all of the exercise is not helping when I sabotage my weekend. Like you Marcia, I have to find what foods are working against me and have a strategy.

I will let you guys know how this weekend works out. emoticon

I'm back on track today. My DS left early for his flight back to DC. I enjoyed his week at home but we ate out a lot! Too much food! I also had problems with my Crohns and figured out it was the granola cereal I had started eating a week ago. So no more of that for me. I had my scrambled eggs this morning and have not had all that rumbling going on. It's just a reminder that I have to watch certain foods so I can avoid those problems. Now if the weather will cooperate I can get back to my evening walks!

I'm enjoying my son's visit but we are eating out all the time! I must show restraint! I did walk Friday night but not Saturday night, as we got home at 8 and it was too dark. I did Tai Chi exercises instead, and while they work on my range of motion and balance, not many calories got burned. So my weight is up. DS leaves early Thursday, so there is more eating out in the works. At least we get to enjoy good conversation with our meals.
DH hasn't decided what he wants to do for his Father's Day dinner. He's decided it's either the local BBQ restaurant (which has more options for me), or Chili's (which DS will deride as he doesn't care for chain restaurants preferring locally run places) or Papa Johns. That's my men: one is junk food the other is high quality food. And no meeting in the middle. It's why I'm not cooking for them. One won't eat what I cook unless it contains ground beef and no veggies, the other won't eat what I cook unless it meets his high standards! And I'm not subjecting myself to those two points of view. When DS is not here, I cook for myself and DH makes his own meals and we're happy to do it that way. Whatever works for your family, you have to do. This is when I miss DD: she and I like to cook and aren't so picky!

Adam is feeling better - not coughing as much and ready to go back to my brother's - however, he will not be going back until Tuesday afternoon. He has an orthodontics consult on Monday. They are going camping with my brother and his family on Wednesday/Thursday then coming home as Adam goes to Scout Camp for 4 days starting Sunday.

My BFF & I will go run on Thursday instead of Wednesday due to my Scout Meeting. WOOHOO!

Well, I will be sporadic next week as on vacation (well, we are having a Stay-cation & I am working in another department two days next week). Not sure if will be able to check in so hope all has a great week.

had a great wog (walk/jog) with my BFF yesterday afternoon - she taught me proper breathing while running : never thought about focusing on breathing properly to help go longer - always thought that as long as I WAS breathing & still moving that I was doing alright (LOL)

planned to go again on Wednesday (at different location) but just found out that may be having a Scout Committee Meeting (UGH; I don't like standing myself up for these things - LOL)

had to go get Adam from my brother's last night as he began to cough/got hoarse (he had mild Reactive Airway Disease when younger & this is how he sounded so got him home and started treatments, feeling better today)

Sorry I was MIA yesterday; I was the nurs-ceptionist again. My receptionist was out sick & no coverage for her (naturally), so I was myself and the receptionist. Luckily the phones weren’t that bad. She’s back today, feeling better, but going to the MD this afternoon

I’m excited; today is my first fitness date with my BFF – we are going for a run!

I had a not so good day, although I'm feeling back to normal now. Crohns flared up a bit and had me headachy and sluggish for a good part of the day. I did accomplish laundry, a trip to the vet to pick up meds, and did my stretching/strength exercises. Looking forward to an evening walk as the sun goes down.

Think I saw an eagle fly over my car while driving to the vets. It was low enough that I could see it, although I couldn't look for long as I was driving. Not a hawk, must have been an eagle. That was really cool! We have hawks in my neighborhood, so I'm used to seeing them all the time.

Cheryl - definitely does make me feel good that my boys can behave when elsewhere. I may be doing something right

I got a later start on my Saturday run. I usually try to get to the track by 8am, but I didn't get there until 9ish and I was sweating, but it felt great. However, I will try to get out there earlier in the future as it gets hotter. I did Day 9 of my Ab Challenge after running on Saturday to be able to have a true Rest Day on Sunday. I went home and mowed the yard before it started raining again. (which it did Saturday afternoon, but not for long).

My boys are still with my brother & his family. They are having too much fun to come home (guess it helps that his step-children are their ages & only have little ones at the sitter. Unfortunately I still have to pay the sitter) We are enjoying the quiet time but miss them.


Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

emoticon Good Afternoon!
I'm with you MARCIA....I don't like to sweat either, except I've just made myself except the fact it sorta come hand in hand with exercise. lol But that still doesn't mean I like it! emoticon I guess we just have to keep pushing ahead. emoticon

Hey Amy, I have twin boys and they are 24 now, but I always seemed to notice that when ever they went away to visit family they were such little angels. emoticon I use to tease my bro-in-law that he was welcomed to keep them for the entire summer.....and he would always reply "well they weren't THAT good" lol I was just always pleased as I'm sure you are too that our kids know how to behave in the presence of others. I'm very proud of my boys, but then I guess the hard work and long hours I put in on them is paying off. lol I hope they are enjoying being home this weekend! emoticon on your AB Challenge! You're doing great! emoticon Keep up the good work!

Linda your doing great with the challenge! I hope you're having a nice weekend with your family!

Speaking of family my son is pacing back and forth in front of me ready to go to the gym so I need to get out of here. lol Everybody have a nice evening! Keep the SPARK! emoticon

DBLDELITES, I don't know how I got by as a child as a child not learning how to swim, because all of my brothers can swim. I love the water aerobics class and I am looking forward to learning to swim.

I'm so glad the sky was overcast the afternoon/evening. It made being outside so much better! We even took our nightly walk earlier and walked to the store and back rather than drive the car which is what we would have had to do if the sun had still been burning strongly!

Yes, I'm hoping for a good month and accomplishing a lot! We will all persist and not let the hot weather have us dragging. I keep reminding myself: it's okay to sweat. Which I do easily but can't stand, but it's a fact of life and the more I move the more I sweat!

emoticon Good Afternoon Everyone! Hmmm....perhaps you were thinking "heat stroke", "someone get a hose!", Amy? lol Wow! I know you had to feel VERY accomplished after your run! YOU GO GIRL! emoticon I'm glad you made it back safely. It's great that your BFF is going to be joining you in the evenings! That will be so much more enjoyable and fun! emoticon emoticon

That's great about the swimming lessons Linda! What a nice way to stay cool in this summer heat. I already know how to swim, but if it got me in a pool, I'd be willing to learn again. lol emoticon I'm glad the pool party was a success!

I hope everyone is having a good day and keeping their eyes on their goals! I just have a really good feeling that June is going to be a really good month for all of us. emoticon emoticon

Hi all!

Amy- Welcome back. I know what you mean about coordination. As I'm not very coordinated, but the class was a blast. we were all moving at our own pace. It didn't feel like you were working out, it was fun!

Linda- Glad that the pool party was a success. Sound like it was fun for all.

Hope everyone is doing well! Have a great day!

What was I thinking in going for a run at 2:30 pm?!?!?!
I managed it though and felt great; I managed to do as the Training App told me (except usually stopped running with 30 seconds left of my 5 min run. But better than not doing anything and I thought ahead - had a huge cup of ice water (well, cool water) waiting for me when I got back to my car. Went into the gas station looking like a wet mop to get gas and another cup of ice water.
My BFF called me last night and wants to start running with me once a week so we made a date to get together and run on Wednesday evenings.... So excited, we don't get much time together anyway and especially without our kids. This will be great for both of us

Did my bathroom last night; won't be able to get any rooms cleaned tonight as have a Parent Scout meeting. Off to get sore ab exercises done

Welcome back Amy. The pool party was great and everyone said that they had a great time. Some of the parents are signing their children up for swimming lessons, which is wonderful and one of the reasons, we did a pool party this year. emoticon

Where have I been?

Linda – glad you had a good pool party

Marcia – glad that you are feeling better & enjoying your walks

Julia – I want to try Zumba but fear my lack of coordination may be a problem; May have to find one for the xbox.

Cheryl – Hope that you guys are able to continue the Family Fitness time. I love when my boys exercise with me.

I am jealous of those that get to enjoy the gym; our finances won’t allow it, but I have enough things for a home gym (2nd hand treadmill given to me, Old Gazelle from after the oldest was born, & my parents gave me a spinning bike for Christmas; along with Videos for ST)

I am a little worried about the temperatures in August if we are already this hot.

I am planning a run after work today, before heading home to clean. Time to do some deep cleaning of the house & I am starting one room at a time.
Brought the boys to my brother this morning before work - they are going spend a few days with his family (coming home on Saturday)

Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

I don't like the hot days we've had, yesterday and today. I can barely stay outside before being drenched in sweat. And it's early days in June! Hoping it cools down a bit before my evening walk. I so enjoyed the spring weather and spent a lot of time outside with the dogs, but now I can only do that in the evening. Mornings would be okay except the sun is shining in our backyard and I'm on meds where I have to be careful of sun exposure. Maybe I should get up at 5 am to enjoy the sun coming up...no, think I prefer getting my sleep.

Hey ya'll! Glad you're feeling better Marcia! I think it must be something with the weather or the air.........I had a migraine this weekend too. OUCH! Let's hope it stays away! I'm glad you got to get out for a walk. emoticon

Happy you broke out for a little while Nappigurl! emoticon I hope you had a nice walk this evening. I didn't think I was going to make it to the gym, but y'all have just inspired me so I'm shutting this down and hitting the door! emoticon

Have a nice evening everyone! emoticon

Well, my weekend was a washout. I had feet pain on Saturday so opted out of my evening walk. Had a bad night with pain so took a pain pill and slept poorly. Woke up and developed a migraine so spent much of Sunday in bed.

Started feeling better in the evening so did a 2 mile walk. Had a good night's sleep and woke feeling refreshed.

Ran errands this morning in the heat (89 at noon) and am glad to be home in the a/c for the afternoon. The heat was really sapping my energy, even taking the dogs out into the back yard was tiring.
