Day 273: Getting My Groove Back
We overslept by about 15 minutes this morning - I think we need a new clock radio, it's been pretty unreliable lately! I was going to blow off the workout and take a rest day, but Paul got up and got dressed to go for a walk and I realized you ... Read more
Day 272: Stress Monster
Ugh, rough morning, but I suppose this too shall pass.
Battling with the kid again...we let her stay home Monday because she was having tummy trouble, then she was fine yesterday, but again today she's home. I think she's getting herself s... Read more
Day 271: Soon to be Back to Normal
Got a solid night's sleep last night, thank goodness - the dogs were both quiet. They're getting pretty snappy with each other though, thank goodness Paul's parents are coming home from vacation this afternoon! We're really ready to go back to... Read more
Day 270: I'm Sooooo Tired, I Haven't Slept a Wink...
...remember that old Beatles song? That's definitely me today. Scotty, my in-laws' dog, was having tummy trouble and was up and down the ENTIRE night. The one time he actually settled down for a while and I managed to drop off, Bam-Bam starte... Read more
Day 267: If You Need Exercise, Get a Dog
I soooo wanted to take a rest day today....but when you have two dogs jumping up onto the bed the second the alarm goes off, rest ain't happening, LOL! So I sucked it up and took Scotty (my in-laws' dog) for a couple-mile walk.

Day 266: Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!
Crazy commute this morning...apparently they found a suspicious package at the high school (which backs up to my daughter's middle school) and evacuated. I guess they told the kids to go to the middle school or go home, so there were kids wande... Read more
Day 265: That Which Does Not Kill Us, Makes Us Stronger
In a fairly crappy mood this morning. :-p Contractor got all the "smoothing" work done on the concrete yesterday (evening out the low spots, in preparation for putting the new laminate floor down), and was ready to lay it today and tomorrow. ... Read more
Day 264: Pizza Lessons
Well, since I couldn't do weights this morning with our bedroom still torn up (more on that in a minute), I decided to go for a walk. Which may not have been the best decision...halfway through, I was really wishing I'd chosen a shorter route, ... Read more
Day 263: I Think I Can, I Think I Can
Tackled Day 3 (which is supposed to be the last day) of Couch to 5K, Week 4. But I still had to split up that last 5-min run into three shorter ones, wah! I am doing pretty well with the first three runs, but that last one is just a killer.

Day 262: Craving Fall
I am soooo ready for sweater weather, but it's supposed to hit 100 here today, sigh.

Day 261: C25K Week 4, Day 2
Oh lordy, I'm tired, but right now I'm a happy tired because I tackled a C25K workout despite feeling like I really just couldn't do it today. How'd I do? Well, I didn't get it perfect, but I did get all 16 minutes in, even though I had to bre... Read more
Day 260: TGIF
Man, this has been a frustrating day. I won't bore you with the details...suffice to say I've been trying to get online access to my dad's checking account, which I am already a signator on, and I've been completely unsuccessful. I get that ba... Read more

Day 258: Docs and Vets
Well, as it turns out, it was a darn good thing they sent Paul in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy - the doc found NINE polyps in his colon! I guess some polyps can turn cancerous if you leave them long enough, so it's a good thing he got this d... Read more
Day 257: Dining Challenges, Coming Right Up
Well, today is the big day - I'm taking Paul in for a colonscopy and endoscopy. He's had a lot of intestinal bugs - or something - over the past 9 months so he finally went to the doctor and has been going through lots of tests - blood test, ul... Read more
