The Great Outdoors
It's a beautiful weekend for camping! We set up our tent yesterday and helped others get situated as well. Even though I somehow missed my walk yesterday. I ended up with more than 14k steps. I imagine today will be similar.
We enjoyed last... Read more
Friday - "55" and the Sworkit App
I woke up before my husband's alarm this morning. When he got up, so did I. I headed downstairs and snuck my strength training workout in before he made it downstairs.

Today's 55 workout
After a short warmup walk, I grabbed my resistance bands, headed outside to my driveway, and did the 55 workout with 5 sets of exercises:
step-ups / wall pushups (the required ones)
lunges / shoulder presses
squats / triceps extensions ... Read more
This morning, I got up and weighed in. The scales showed a 1 lb. decrease from last week - not as much as I had hoped, but definitely an improvement.
Bingo is out, 55 is in. 55 step ups and wall pushups, that is. I warmed up with a coupl... Read more
Challenging day for exercise
I usually squeeze in the bulk of my exercise in the morning before the kids are up. Today, the tornado siren went off before 6AM, so everyone was up before my workout would normally begin. Most of the kids opted to go ahead and eat and get sta... Read more
Survived Chinese buffet today
After doing a bunch of strength training this morning to fill in boxes on my second bingo card, I headed to church early to go over this morning's worship set. Worship was awesome this morning!
After church, my husband and I had a short ... Read more
The blackout of October 2014
I did it! I admit I didn't feel like it this morning, but I noticed one of my teammates already had blacked out her card, so I knew I had to get that last box filled and black out my card. Thirty-three minutes later I had finished Jessica Smit... Read more
1 box left!
Bingo has been fun. My kids have been really getting into it and encouraging me along as they've been looking at the cool things on my bingo card. Some are fun and a little silly - give yourself a hug, and look in the mirror and tell yourself ... Read more
Bingo, Day 2
Last night I hit the sack with every intent of sleeping as long as possible. My oldest daughter was planning to walk with me this morning, and I didn’t want to go out with her while it was still really dark. My body had other plans, as it woke... Read more
What a day!
I woke up early this morning. I was concerned about the coming day - mostly about my son having surgery to remove excess gum tissue now that his braces are off. One of the best things to do when I'm feeling anxious about something is distract ... Read more
Clinging to non-scale victories this week
This has been a crazy busy week for me, and so far this week the scale has not been showing a loss, but I DON'T CARE because...
My body fat is down. ... Read more
Yesterday was a full, fun, and productive Sunday. My husband and I had the opportunity to serve as greeters in our church, and I enjoyed saying hello to everyone and handing them bulletins – it was our first time doing this, and it was wonderfu... Read more
Raising the barre
This morning I took my morning walk in the cool and breezy fall weather as the sun was coming up. I planned to take it easy, but each mile was faster than the last. I w... Read more
Racing the Rain
Last night I snuck out for a walk before the sun set. I was kind of racing the dark, trying my best to get my 10,000 steps for the day before night fell. I didn’t quite win the race, but I DID make 10,000.
I knew the weather was predicted... Read more

I've been Fooducated
This morning I did my 20 minutes of strength training focusing on the upper body – 5 sets of 12 each of chest presses, lateral raises, overhead tricep presses, bent over rows, and bicep curls. On the first and last set of each I supersetted eac... Read more
