I'm tired today. Part of that is because it is the end of the week. Part of it is because it is gloomy and dank around here. I'm so sick of rain, rain, rain! I'm still getting things done but it's been a gut-it-out and do it sort of a day. ... Read more

Today was a better day than yesterday. I made an effort to calm down my own reactions to teen drama and that helped them to tone down the drama itself. Fruits and Veggies eaten today: broccoli onion mung bean sprouts carrots snow... Read more

Today dh was off of work. He took both kids on a 12 mile bike ride. Ds17 vows never to move again! I'm talking up how proud I am of his effort, though. He has a predilection to follow in my footsteps weight and fitness wise and I don't want ... Read more

Day 15 at 6000 steps! Today was a busy day. We had church in the morning. From a spiritual health standpoint that's good. From a physical health standpoint there is a lot of sitting and a lot of junk served at the "Fellowship time". B... Read more

Another mildly achy day. I think I'm feeling a bit depressed as well. That didn't keep me from my morning routine at the Y. Today is day 14 of my 6000 step streak. I've also been steadily working on my Motivated Moms list. Today's special t... Read more

Today was a hard day for some reason. I was tired from a long week. I'm stressed because of all the IL drama. My husband has responded to all the stuff with his parents by not sleeping well. And then today he didn't want to take any calls fr... Read more

Ohhh! My feet are so sore! I got over 10,000 steps today. I walked on the treadmill this morning as usual. Then after eating out for my dd's 13th birthday, we walked at the mall, not long but long enough. Then I debated this a long time, bu... Read more

Tenth day in a row to reach my 6000 step goal. 20th day out of 28 days (I don't know why FitBit counts 28 day periods). I am doing so well. I am doing a trial of an app called Motivated Moms. It is a housekeeping to-do list. Some thin... Read more

1. Made my 6000 step goal! This is the 9th day of reaching it in a row. It is the 19th day out of the last 28 that I've hit my goal (though to be fair, my goal didn't increase until after the 28 day period started). 2. I vacuumed toda... Read more

1. I'm only halfway to my step goal of 6000 steps today. I will reach it though. I'm very goal oriented. Dd suggested that we walk at the mall tonight. I know that is really because she wants to go to the drugstore there but I might take he... Read more

This is my new proverb or mantra or life saying or whatever you want to call it. I feel like life is a series of holes that I try to crawl out of. I'm in the crawling out phase now but sometimes I feel overwhelmed. That's when I start to tell... Read more

1. I learned that people's impressions of me can vary widely and can miss the truth by a lot! Yesterday the chiropractor happened to ask how old I was. He was shocked when I told him and a startled "oh, you're that young?" slipped out. (Yes,... Read more
