June 28, 2010

Today I'm thankful for Summer treats and getting my "brain" back on track.

Who knew that Jelly Belly made popscicles?!  The kids enjoyed theirs!

And this morning I tackled the treadmill for the first time ever.  It took me quite a while to get things figured out and set to the right speeds and settings.  As a matter of fact, it took me 29 minutes and 21 seconds to run 2.0 miles.  But I'm pretty sure something is wrong with that one, since I can walk 2 miles in 30 minutes.  I guess I'm going to have to break down and buy the operator's manual online, just so I know what I'm doing.

This past month, I haven't even cracked open my "brain".  I'm so off schedule and floundering, that I decided I needed to start somewhere.  So this is it!  I also needed a good challenge and Cathy Z. has provided one for me by setting up a challenge of running 50 miles in July.  I'm looking forward to it!

I managed to do 9 (NINE!!!!) loads of laundry today, 2 dishwashers full of dishes (plus some hand washing), my Pilates, a good run, and I took out the garbage and cleaned the kitchen and part of Eli's bedroom today.  I'm tired . . . but just waiting on that last load of laundry to finish drying, so I can put my comforter back on the bed before I fall asleep. 

Hoping tomorrow is another productive day!
