I finally got some exercise time on my gazelle today . . . 21 minutes. I haven't spent much time on it lately since I've been doing a lot of running and walking but it's such a low-impact way to get a good exercise.... Read more

Wow! Busy cardio day for me today. I ran 35 minutes (plus 5 minutes each warm up and cool down) for Day 1 of Week 4 5KYW Running Program. Only 2.72 miles and 0.5 miles warm up/cool down but it felt good to be able to run without stopping. ... Read more

Today was a mild day - my feet are still a little sore from running in my shoes that are getting a little old so I decided to wait one more day to start my week 4 of 5KYW Running. I went for 2 small walks - 8 minutes with Mia and 13 minutes wit... Read more

Wow! No "official" exercise today but my daughter & I totally emptied out our garage and cleaned it. Swept it all out, moved things up to and down from the attic (artificial tree finally got up to the attic - for only about a 3 month stay but... Read more

I finished week 3 of the 5KYW Running Program. I wasn't sure if I had the energy to walk/jog for 40 minutes tonight but thought I'd get started and give it a shot. Figured I could always turn around after the first 5 minutes and try again to... Read more

My exercise today consists of walking 20 minutes each way (to and from Kauffman Stadium) to go to see the MLB Home Run Derby. We didn't want to pay $25 to park in the parking lot so we found some off-site parking. We figured we would do enough ... Read more

We ran our 5K this morning - it was already so hot at 7:30am that we had to take a couple of walking breaks. We were on track at the 2 mile point to do a 33 minute 5K but the hills and heat made us use common sense and walk a bit - maybe 5 block... Read more

My daughter and I left Omaha at 12:30 this afternoon and just got home at 10:30 tonight. We drove all the way to Libertyville, IA (4hr 16 min from Omaha) and back. My daughter found a car on CraigsList so we drove over there to test drive it a... Read more

I spent 57 minutes mowing this morning. It's way too hot to do anything else outside - though I may try to do an exercise video or 10-15 minutes on my gazelle yet. I've been feeling hungry today and I should do some more to burn calories - may... Read more

I had a really relaxed 4th of July - I worked last night so I slept until 1:30 or 2:00. I made some homemade spaghetti sauce (lower fat - with ground turkey instead of hamburger) and then did 10 minutes on the gazelle later on to get my exercis... Read more

A short, quick workout tonight - 10 minutes on my gazelle before I left for work. Went to my son's baseball game after I got up tonight and then got home late so I jumped on the gazelle for a really short workout. I knew that I should have don... Read more

I ran my day 3 of week 2 of 5KYW Running program. I wanted to run it tomorrow, like my calendar shows, but I work tonight and tomorrow night and it's supposed to be nearly 100 degrees by afternoon, which is when I'd have to run. I decided to r... Read more

I haven't done any "official" exercise yet today, though I plan on taking both doggies for walks soon. My youngest son and I spent 3 hours walking around at the Henry Doorly Zoo this morning/afternoon. We got in about 3 miles of walking from w... Read more

Today was day 247 for my 10 minutes daily exercise - I walked/jogged 2.94 miles (35 minutes) for day 2 of week 2 for the 5KYW Running Program. I really felt good while running and they ended up averaging 12-minute miles! It really helps to hav... Read more
