Fitness Friday

I just spent a few days in Ohio. It was a quick trip to just get away and have some family time. We went to an indoor waterpark and to Cedar Point. I racked up over 26,ooo steps at Cedar Point and reached 3 million steps for the year. I’m not as far along as I would like to be but hopefully I can keep up the pace and pad my total so that I’ll get ahead before November comes along. I will definitely make my minimum step goal for the year and should be able to make the stretch goal as well.

How are you doing on your fitness goals? You do have some – at least one? I’d love to hear how you are doing. Let me know in the comments.

Tuesday Tidbits

Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head…

I’m feeling good about the work I’ve accomplished in the weed forest – still lots to go but there is a noticeable improvement. We’ve started to cut down the dead trees and I’m looking into possible replacements.

I’m feeling happy that my  son has made some friends in the neighborhood – it’s nice to not have to listen to the “there’s nothing to do” chorus.

I’m feeling frustrated because my daughter seems completely unable to follow simple rules and torn as to what possible consequences I can try this time around. It seems as though nothing ever really lasts and I’m tired of the battle. I can’t give up as I’ve done in the past but it is tough to stay the course.

I’m pleased that I finally got off my butt and got to the pool today – only 200 meters but it’s a start. First time in over 4 months – need to get serious about getting there at least once every week.

I really want/need to get myself into a more productive routine. I’m spending too much time on what I want to do and not enough on the things I need to do. It is starting to catch up to me in not so great ways – ugh.

I’m going to close for now before I get myself into a negative mindset – off to do something productive like finishing up the laundry.
