You do have oodles and oodles of UMPH! I was very impressed with your dedication while camping not only turning down the treats but streaming the 30DS in the woods! You rock!

=========

Since it's still morning here, I have pretty much a full day ahead to get the week figured out! I have my workouts planned (that never changes!), but need to do some meal planning!

Lisa--thanks for asking about the knee. I started physical therapy and I think that's helped. It still hurts, but not as much! One of the hardest things I have to do is be mindful of always keeping my foot in front of my knee. It's so hard not to curl up, especially when reading or watching TV!
Linda, thanks so much for jumping in and coaching a couple of days! I'm glad that your knee is slowly getting better. It is so hard to undo those long standing habits that got us into trouble in the first place -- I am very bad about curling up myself. Then once you start trying to be good other things start aching because they were getting twisted and you didn't even know it. It's like you can't win! But it sounds like you are healing. It is just a slow process. Don't be shy about coming around to say hello!

Helen, your pictures were absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

Rose, sorry the back is still bothering you.

How fun to do a race with your DS.

My race was great -- thanks for asking. It was in the 40's and showering so the weather was a bit of a challenge. It is a local race for United Way and they had a good turnout. Between the cold air and the high pollen here my asthma really flared up after the race so I have to take a break for a day or two here to let things calm down. My doctor told me that when you are running you have enough adrenaline in your system that it is not an issue but once you stop running that is when it flares up -- it had been so long since I had any problems that my inhaler had expired more than 2 years ago. Oh, and my glutes say "you'd better start running outside more!"

QOTD for Monday, April 22, 2013:

In honor of Earth Day....

How aware are you of your carbon footprint? Have you made changes at any point in your life to try to reduce that carbon footprint? Do you think leading a healthier lifestyle helps or hinders efforts to lead a more "green" life??


...............................P
Ah, our traditional Earth Day question -- the ultimate showing of recycling!

Our carbon footprint gets smaller all the time. Our recycling bin is always full but some weeks we don't even bother taking our trash can out there is so little in it. I think a healthier lifestyle helps leading a greener life. I am probably the least enthusiastic family member about recycling -- I feel like it is spitting in the ocean and rebel about saving the trash sometimes.

It is crazy but sadly the folks that make up the rules for the legalities don't spend any time in the classroom as far as I can tell.

I agree..... she lead with a GREAT example of NO EXCUSES!

Sorry that the asthma acted up, but glad you finished.


Ah, our traditional Earth Day question -- the ultimate showing of recycling!

Didn't mean to recycle the QOTD, but I should have realized that something similar was asked on previous Earth Days!

Our carbon footprint gets smaller all the time. Our recycling bin is always full but some weeks we don't even bother taking our trash can out there is so little in it. I think a healthier lifestyle helps leading a greener life. I am probably the least enthusiastic family member about recycling -- I feel like it is spitting in the ocean and rebel about saving the trash sometimes.

It is hard to keep up the enthusiasm for the recycling when my town transfer station doesn't even help, but I keep trying!


Don't we all? Thanks for picking up the coaching this week!

You are welcome. Did you catch any of the DIS livestreaming from DAK yesterday??


P.S. Neener, neener poof fairy
Lisa.... hoping your lungs are feeling much better today. Go get yourself a new inhaler.... not the kind of thing you want to live without! (Which reminds me that DS's Epi-pen expired in November.... )

********************

Morning again everyone! Relaxed a bit this morning and caught up on last night's DWTS and have been watching a new show with DS called Brain Games. Makes me realize that I am not nearly as good an observer and multi-tasker as I thought I was!

DH is off to Boston and then Maine today until tomorrow night. I plan to head up to my scrapping table in a bit....WOOHOO! Laundry is pretty well caught up, so I will give myself the day off of that. I will ask one of the kids to empty the dishwasher and foods today will be quick and easy. Since I will be away all weekend, can't slack off too much on the housework, but I really want to give myself a "day off" as it were.

I'll pop on again at lunch to say hello!.......................P

Off to post the QOTD, get a cup of coffee, and start my day!..............P
I hope you enjoyed your morning without any rushing around. I can't wait until summer so I can do the same!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a quick minute to check in before I plug along on my IEPs. I needed a mental break for now. The weather is beautiful today and supposed to be 70 degrees! I am going to do my 30ds after work and then a friend and I plan on walking while our kids are at soccer. The fields are in a recreation area by our lake, so I can't wait to get extra exercise, have some girl talk, and enjoy nature We'll probably walk for 30 minutes so we can watch the other half our our littlest one's practice.

Okay, I am off to get some of this dreaded work done. Enjoy your day!

Jill

Glad you had a great race. 40 and showering is no fun, though. Hope your asthma is better today and listen to those glutes lol. Mine tell me the same thing when I get back into outside running.

We watch Brain Games as well. We dvr'd last night's new episode and can't wait to watch it. DS9 really likes the show, too. I wonder if they have last season on dvd yet. It would be fun to show my students on those days when I need something to fill in for 45-50 minutes (like when we give state tests or something). It is a pretty cool show.

It was really neat and something FUN to watch with DS instead of having to always compromise in HIS shows or MY shows! Even after I left the room I could still hear him chuckling at the TV!

******************

Okay.... I made it upstairs to my scrapping table but needed to make my bed first. So I made my bed, but realized it was nearly LUNCH TIME and wanted to get something warm cooking for the kids. So pasta is boiling, sauce is warming, and I still haven't pulled out my scrapping stuff yet!

Timer for pasta is beeping so I will run! TTYL....................P

Paper or plastic or reusable?? All 3 lol. We use the plastic bags for cleaning the litter boxes. I take one of those and line a square bucket with it and it works really well, good to knock off the excess stuff. We use paper for our trash bags and I have a huge one for my bike basket I use if I remember to bring it in.

Salty or sweet?? Salty

Homebody or Adventure-seeker?? A little of both.

Navy or black?? Black

Neat or sloppy?? At work super neat-- at home kinds messy.

Planner or spontaneous?? Spontaneous unless it's a Disney trip.

Eat less or exercise more?? Exercise more

Optimist or pessimist? Optimist I try anyway--seems you get knocked down a lot.

Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla

Cats or dogs?? Both! I have many cats but we love dogs.

Street smarts or book smarts?? Book. I think I'm surgically attached to the internet any more. I have to have 50 opinions of the right way to do anything.

Apple or orange?? Apple. but a big juicy orange does not offend

Introvert or extrovert?? Introvert I guess. Sometimes I get really social though if I'm in a pretty good mood.

Reality TV or Dramas?? Reality. Right now I've been into 'World's worst tenants', lol, all the storage unit auction shows, I like pretty much any show on animal planet right now especially My cat from Hell. I am eagerly awaiting the new season of True Blood a the moment though, we love Walking Dead, and I've been watching Girls. We mostly watch comedies though.

Daffodils or tulips??
I love tulips! I saw some of those really dark purple ones on my bike ride yesterday, the kind that look black when they are closed-those are my favorite.

Supposed to be really nice here today--think I'll let the kittens explore the back yard grass a little later lol.

Well, the unplanned walking continues!!! I forgot my lunch today (prepped it all, then left it on the counter in the kitchen!!) so at lunchtime I had to walk to the nearest store to buy some lunch (baked beans and bananas....not together!!). My Garmin Fit app said I did 1.32km in 13mins and 32 seconds, and used 92 calories in the process!!

lmhall2000........The scotch egg recipe is really simple....boil (soft boil) and shell 4 eggs. Take a pound of lean pork sausage, skin and divide into 4. Coat each egg in a fourth of the sausage. (You can dip in egg and roll in breadcrumbs at this stage if you want, but I don't bother) spray with a little low cal spray, then bake in the oven for around 30-40 minutes at 200C.

Super! Now I need the chicken and potato bake recipe! Can I just come visit your kitchen or awhile? I do not think our sausage tastes like yours, so you just bake, no deep frying? I can do that!


Way to go all you walkers/runners!! Great job! I got my 30 DS in but am feeling a light headed slump, trying to figure out foods I can eat that will up my energy, but usually get anemic at TOM...

NOT ONE!! I succumbed to a serving of Ruffles potato chips yesterday and again today when I got home, I had about 8 potato chips yesterday (but they were big) and today I stuck to 6, but also the big ones..but honestly in the old days I could have had half the bag and still wanted more...I should be starting today or tomorrow (PMS) and I usually have horrific hunger/junk food cravings the day before so I let myself have those potato chips.

The exciting news was that I was able to stream Jillian's 30DS yesterday off the mountain, no cell service so I was worried and even better talke 2 other moms into doing it with me and their 3 daughters....they really enjoyed it but I had to give myself a pat on the back...I am roughly 40-50 pounds overweight,these moms were in normal weight zone to me...and they had to stop quite a bit during the workout..I really am amazed how much strength I have built up in just the 14 days I've been doing it! I assured them that if they start it and do it daily they would not have to stop at all...We all said how much better we felt after doing it!!

At the campsite, we were 1/4 mile from the bathroom so each trip was a half mile, I thinked I easily walked 5 miles each day just with bathroom trips and hiking to our skills field!

I just took my first shower in 3 days and am going to nap before tackling today's 30DS! I am just so amazed that I'm holding steady on this losing frame of mind and not the reward with food frame of mind!! It is tough but feels so much better!!
Sounds like a great camping trip!! I miss camping, we used to go camping in the CA Redwoods every summer, haven't been in several years now... really wanting to go back!

QOTD for Monday, April 22, 2013:

In honor of Earth Day....

How aware are you of your carbon footprint? Have you made changes at any point in your life to try to reduce that carbon footprint? Do you think leading a healthier lifestyle helps or hinders efforts to lead a more "green" life??


...............................P
I try... recycle more than I think our city is even capable of recycling, also try to conserve water seeing as how we live in the desert, and I try to get our office staff to cut down on the paper we use, though I know this doesn't even make a dent! Government jobs (much like teaching) are FULL of paperwork, a lot of which is unnecessary IMO! I do drive A LOT, but this is because our city is so spread out and my job consists of a ton of field work, so really unavoidable to drive so much
