Bought a bigger yoga ball

It is much better for sitting at my desk. I gained weight yrs ago, when I went from outside sales to working inside.
I went from walking, climbing, driving, & carrying items to sitting at a desk with a computer all day.

My bigger yoga ball will help to strengthen my core. It's also handy to do exercises on my lunch hour. I just roll it to an empty area & exercise. These ball exercises are really tough but hopefully they will get easier for me.

I still haven't missed a day of exercise starting July 23, 2007.
There are 3 people in the challenge that haven't missed a day. A couple I'm not sure if they've missed because they haven't checked in.
I guess the competition is great for all involved because we will all have better health!

yoga ball

Bought a yoga ball to sit on at work. I bought the smaller size because I'm under 5'6" & that's what the pkg sd. Well it's too low to the ground. I'm having a hard time with my keyboard & my knees are pretty high. Hope no one has a camera. I'll go buy a bigger ball tonight & take this one home to DS. I plan to get one for home too. If I give DS his own maybe I can use mine in peace.

I just finished my workout with the ball it was hard. I can feel my core getting stronger.
1 full week of exercising everyday.

Will the day ever come?

6/6 loved dancing round with DS today. Whoo hoo 6 days in a row.
We are not doing much today. A lazy day, my favorite kind of day.
I'm making a few files on the computer. Always working toward
making my business my full time job.

I'm a little bummed that my craft room is being packed.
I'm feeling very creative & really want to scrap.
Oh I can't wait for the day it's finished, cleaned, organized,
& I have time to play. Oh will the day ever come.

My friend Katie has been a great inspiration. She bit the
bullet & is doing well. Take a look at her blog. Her link is
one of my favorite places to visit.

Still exercising

Oh it was hard. We traveled almost 2 hrs to a party & almost 2 hrs home.
I meant to get in the jupiter jump to get my exercise at the party but never
go around to it. I did crunches at 10:30 p.m. but I did them.
We all had a great time at the party especially DS. I'm not sure I will have
any photos to scrap because I didn't take my camera & my DS wouldn't
smile in the photos.

I can't wait

Challenge #4Do a blog entry that's only photos NO WORDS or TEXT of any kind except for the title (no cheating don't make that title 200 words). You could just post a few photos you've taken recently and not shared, or you might like to post a whole bunch of random photos from you lastest adventure and let us guess what you are doing or where you are. Or perhaps you want to make one of those mosaics I've seen on blogs recently. Have fun with this one!

4/4 consecutive days

4 consecutive days exercising. It was tough last night. I think it's best if I don't wait late in the evening. Especially as the week goes on I get tired earlier each day. By Friday nights I'm toast from waking before 5 a.m. all week long.
Today G & I switched vehicles. I will go get the floors after work today. It's been a little while since I've driven a standard. I thought I was in first gear & I was in 2nd gear. I shifted to what I thought was 2nd gear but it was really first gear. The truck jerk & C sd "Wow mommy that was cool." I thought hope I didn't mess up anything on this truck. Then C sd "Do it again mommy." Of course I did not do it again. Good thing DH doesn't read my blog. LOL

Tool caddy by Mimi

My friend Mimi made the fabulous tool caddy for my crap (craft) room. She's so talented & I'm really grateful.

I can't wait to finish redecorating my room. I have the perfect place for my new caddy. It will match my decor perfectly.

I love it! Thank you Mimi!

3/3 consecutive days of exercise

I'm 3 for 3 on consecutive days of exercise.
Oh it was so hard last night. I was winding down before bed by laying across my bed
watching criminal minds TV show. I thought Oh I haven't exercised today. I didn't want to
get up & exercise, but I did, I'm very proud of myself. I did a combination of push ups,
jumping jacks (low impact) & jumping on the mini trampoline. I had a little helper
with the push ups & he did more full body push ups than I could do; I switched to the girl
push ups. He also out jumped me on the mini trampoline, despite my saying I wanted to
jump alone.

Family Fun

My cousin is visiting so my mom had a fabulous dinner. Dinner was great & I love food. I did eat my favorite sweet potato casserole & it was yummy. Mom is a fabulous cook. It was good to visit with family & meet my cousin's husband's nieces.
My plan was to host July 4 but my floors are not finished. I've been fighting a cold & just don't feel like hosting.
