Ten to be exact. In ten hours, I'm kicking off my 40 mile run to celebrate my 40th birthday and while big parts of me are excited and can't wait to make this happen...I'm also incredibly nervous. I've been training for months (over 6 months) and have run through all... Continue reading

My last day of 2012 was wrapped up in an unusual package.:) I joined about 100 others for the "Last Chance Marathon!" I was pretty intrigued at what people would show up in the middle of winter to run 26.2 miles. Hmm. Would it rain or snow? Would I know... Continue reading

I am sooo excited to get started on this new "blog adventure" of mine! I thought January 1st to be the perfect day to kick it off...a fresh start and all, right? But yesterday, my sweet 7 year old Thomas captured my attention and I wanted to be sure and... Continue reading

We had our "Valentine Open House" today at our new "warehouse space" and silly me, I wore my high heel black boots and ran around on the concrete floors for way too long. I got my "steps" in for the day...but wow, my feet are paying for it! Steps: 11,500 Calories: 2700 Continue reading

Apparently chess is a better sport than I thought! Hanging out and helping out at our school's chess tournament ended up being good for steps and calories too! (Plus I have to admit it's really fun! I love watching the kids flip between being super serious as they challenge each other in chess...and then running around like typical 7 year old boys!) Steps: Calories: Continue reading

Not exciting, not monumental, but very,very good for me. (I think I'll arrange something like this more often!) We slept in a bit til almost 8am...stayed in bed for a lil' bit and just talked. So nice to have a quiet start to the morning. (But we missed church!) Then we attacked house projects for a couple hours...so great to work together and get our house back in a little order after a crazy busy week. And then Jim and the boys LEFT THE HOUSE....for 7 hours. :) They headed to Canada for Jackson's buddy's birthday party at a water... Continue reading

Came home from work...my sweet neighbor had my boys...I had about 30 minutes til I needed to pick them up. And I was yawning. Hmmm...a nap? How 'bout that workout I promised myself today? So I went and enjoyed the beautiful weather...25 minutes later, I was back home and happy. A little sweaty but very happy. Picked the kids up and headed to Trader Joe's...a sweet and simple evening. Steps as of 9:39pm: 11623 Calories as of 9:39: 2812 Continue reading

...add up to many steps! Or calories for that matter! So why was I huffing and puffing so much? Dragged my lil' ones around tonight to do errands and then still convinced them that I really, really needed to run (they actually are interested in the whole "step" thing so maybe that's what got them?). Anyway, so I arrive at the gym eager to get some good running into my day (which equates to LOTS of steps, right?)...but alas, every single treadmill is taken. So I drag myself onto the Stairmaster. But you know despite my sweating, it didn't add... Continue reading

Lesson learned today re. my BodyBugg. I love, love my Body Bugg but.....it only loves me when I wear it. Didn't put my BodyBugg on today...not even sure why. (Maybe I anticipated being a pretty lazy day? I am back East and well, I used the snow outside as an excuse to stay inside chatting with Mary and Bennett. The kids enjoyed hanging in their PJs today just playing around at Grandma Mary's house...a very sweet day.) But I digress...the lesson learned: If you don't wear your BodyBugg, you can guesstimate calories and add them on-line, but you cannot guesstimate... Continue reading

Today was an AWESOME day! Started with an early church service, off for a walk, back to home and walk kids to birthday party in the neighborhood, take advantage of child free time with a run with Jim, off to Trader Joe's, then a "soup swap" party with girlfriends (so fun!), dinner at home with Erin and kiddos, put kids to bed, a little work on the computer, a few minutes on the Wii.... And it all adds up to 17598 steps! Woo hoo! Continue reading

So happy to be back at work today! The flexibility of my new business is pretty sweet. I love the gals I work with and was so impressed with all they managed while I was away. They rocked it! It was so awesome to be able to travel back East for 2 weeks and know that everything would be great! :) Oh but with getting back into the swing of everything, my "steps" today weren't so hot...no gym, not even a walk! Steps: 6854, Calories: 2541 Continue reading

...that an ordinary day can be so AWESOME for "steps?" One side little benefit of an extra busy day I guess! Between lots of running around at work, chess for Jackson and gymnastics following for both lil' guys...it has been a busy, but ordinary day. (But no official workout of any sort.) The step count as of 10:14 pm: 9710, Calorie count: 2935. Continue reading

Today is my official "kick off" to my personal challenge of averaging 10,000 steps a day...walking, running, everyday activities...I'm excited to use my new buddy, the Body Bugg, to track everything and keep me motivated! I also just happen to love "numbers" so this should be fun! Today's Steps: Today's Calories: Continue reading
