Friday, October 28, 2011      0 comments

walked the dogs the short walk and then mowed the lower acre and side yard for 2.5 hours. I love to mulch the leaves in instead of raking them. Well, maybe it would be more truthful to say I would rather do anything besides raking leaves. So I l... Read more

Jogged 2.4 this morning. It was a slow return. I probably could have walked faster. Worked all day and felt fabulous. DH is still moving kind of slow. He just asked about a high protein diet as in what would one eat. Hmmm. Wonder what he is thin... Read more

Life has a way of changing my plans
Friday, October 21, 2011      4 comments

So the plan was to hit the green way in a big active way today. Then dh, who went to bed sick, also woke up sick. I went in to work for him but really already knew I was in trouble. Thankfully a dear part time employee came in to help the other ... Read more

So, after napping yesterday, I still went to sleep at 9:30 and slept like a log. When I got up this morning dh recommended I take another day "off" and just walk the poochies instead of running. Well, I know he means well so I agreed even though... Read more

After such an active day yesterday, I ended up not being able to sleep. Didn't help that I had a very technical project at work that took hours today. I sat there chugging through the intricate tedium with tears in my eyes and nose running. Pret... Read more

Just read a high lighted blog from another member about climbing monkey bars. It made me think about something one of my dd s said the other day. If this is the best it is going to get, am I willing to accept that joyfully or will I choose bitte... Read more

So, here I am griping again. I jogged over 4 plus walked another with MIL. DH had told me he thought the scales were off (they are doctor scales). Sure enough, they needed adjusting with the screw driver to zero out. Dang, another 1/2 pound adde... Read more
