day 140 (day 7 / week 20)

Yesterday after I exercised, I got ready for a Job Fair that they had here in Las Vegas. I dropped my son off at his Papa's house, went to the Job Fair, and then came back to pick him up (about 2 hours). I stayed for a while and told Papa about the Job Fair (I promise this story has a purpose!) then gathered all of my stuff (I had picked up a lot of junk there lol) and headed home. A few hours later, my hubby came home, and that's when I realized I left my phone at Papa's house. It was too late to drive there to pick it up--it's about an hour in the car, round trip.

Today I wanted to go jogging again, but my hubby let me sleep in. I woke up when I wanted to have my foot out the door. It's a love hate relationship--I appreciate that he lets me sleep in, but I don't want to! If I plug my alarm clock in, I have a hard time sleeping throughout the night, because the light keeps me awake (I'm kind of a light sleeper), so he has agreed to be my alarm clock, but I think the batteries are dying. Waah. lol. Anyway we talked about it and I said, "No big deal, I'll just go and I'll be back a few minutes after you leave at the most," and he can call me when he's about to leave, to see where I am. We couldn't do this, because I don't have my phone. YARR!

I decided to just not go, but it was eating away at me, because I really WANTED to go. I'm bored with my videos. I feel all cooped up in the house, now that I have had a taste of exercising outside. I woke my son up early (he sleeps until I wake him--am I the luckiest gal, or what?), plopped him in the stroller and decided to try to jog with him in the stroller. I kept stepping on the brake stopper thing lol. Didn't work, so I walked the 2 miles today in 40 minutes.

I came home and did the strength training, that Sparkpeople assigned for me to do today:

Crunches with Twist 2 12-15
Back Extension 2 12-15
One-Arm Dumbbell Rows 2 12-15
Seated Dumbbell Concentration Curls 2 12-15
Lying Adduction 2 12-15
Standing Adduction 2 12-15

I think all things considered, I got a pretty good workout today. I didn't jog, but that's okay because I still got out there and did something :).

Sorry for the rambling today. Off to Papa's house to pick up my phone, now that he is awake!

Hope you all have a good day today. I can't believe it's already Wednesday!

Make it count :).

I can do this. I am a star.

First, I appreciate your sweet words of encouragement, thank you!

Second, way to go. I still haven't exercised today and don't know that I will be able to.

How about turning your clock to the wall, or tossing something over it, will that help?

Hi Melissa, I just got a new clock radio for my birthday. My mom couldn't believe that's what I used my gift money for, but you will understand. This clock radio's light can be dimmed or turned off without turning off the clock!! It also plays CD's and has nature sounds, which I thought was really cool. By far, the best feature is turning the light off completely but the alarm still going off in the morning. I didn't like having to rely on my hubby to wake me up; and he didn't like me being cranky with him when he tried coz I don't like getting up in the mornings...any morning...for anything. :) It's a Timex T612. Check it out, maybe you have a birthday coming up or will want to ask Santa for it?
