I had a really frustrating day with my computer today. I logged on when I got up and then came back to log my breakfast and got a message that my internet provider had frozen my internet service due to a potential trojan threat from earlier thi... Read more
Day 275

Gosh, we got the big branch cut up today. It came down in the little bit of a "storm" that we had a couple of nights ago. There was hardly any wind or rain but it managed to twist off a fairly large branch from a birch tree in our front yard. ... Read more
Day 274 - a day at the zoo
Saturday, July 28, 2012      8 comments

I took my kids to the Henry Doorly Zoo today. Last time I only had my youngest along and the other two weren't too happy that we went without them. My work gives us a $10 discount on a membership to the zoo every year so I've had a family memb... Read more
Day 273 - 5K today
Thursday, July 26, 2012      6 comments

I ran my 5K today, ok - I actually jogged it, fairly slow even. I ran it in 44'33" which is the longest it's taken me to do 5K. I also spent 12 minutes walking to warm up and cool down. I wasn't really concerned about how fast I was running s... Read more
Day 272 - trying new features on my nifty ipod
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      4 comments

I've been meaning to calibrate my ipod so I don't have to absolutely remember every turn and road I take while running or walking in order to map my route. I also would like something to tell me when I've gone, say, 5K (or whatever I choose) so... Read more

I decided to just stay inside and work out on my gazelle tonight. I really worked up a sweat (forgot to turn on the fan to blow on me while working out!) in 15 minutes. I only went a distance of 1 mile but it felt nice and refreshing because I... Read more

Today was my 270th straight day of at least 10 minutes of daily exercise. Even though it was still 103 degrees out tonight at about 7:30pm I gathered my gear together and went to a local trail to run. It runs along a creek here in town (I didn... Read more

Today was kind of a boring day for me in regards to exercise. I figured it was pretty darn hot when I got up at 4:30 this afternoon (I guess we broke a record with 105 degree temps) and I have to work tonight so I would put off running my 30 mi... Read more

I took my son's bike out and rode in the neighborhood for 20 minutes tonight (2.5miles). I forget how much work that is since I don't ride our exercise bike that often.... Read more

I mowed today for 35 minutes and then tonight I started week 5 of 5KYW Running Program so I ran for 30 minutes (wow, just checked and it's still 94 degrees outside!). I did 5 minutes of warm up and 5 minutes of cool down on my gazelle while wat... Read more

10 minutes on my gazelle tonight. Hubby and I went to a company picnic for his work and it was at a local fun complex (The Amazing Pizza Machine). Our boys didn't want to go - one was with friends having a water balloon fight and the other th... Read more

I finished week 4 of my 5KYW Running Program tonight - ran for 40 minutes (plus 5 minutes of warmup walking and 5 minutes of cool down walking). Next week I run for 30 minutes straight for 2 days and then run my 3.1 miles for the last day. ... Read more
Day 264 - a little of this and a little of that
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      4 comments

I went 11 minutes on my gazelle tonight for my exercise. I did manage to get 8 hours of sleep today but went a little over my upper calorie count. Sarah made a yummy white cake last evening with sweetened whipped cream for frosting and s... Read more

I took both doggies for walks tonight (separately) for a total of 25 minutes. Nice and refreshing - not quite so hot at 8:30pm as it was earlier in the day.... Read more

I decided to jog tonight for Week 4 Day 2 of 5KYW Running program. I hadn't planned on exercising outside because it was still 96 degrees out but it didn't seem very humid. I packed my water bottle full of ice and set out from my house to jog ... Read more
