Emily's week 22

Nothing, nothing, and nothing! We've all been sick, so I've either been caring for sick children or being sick myself.

Next week we're on vacation up at my parents' house, and I'm not sure what that will mean for exercise. I'm kind of guessing it won't happen, though. We'll see. With some luck I'll get back on track in week 24. :)

Good Week

Sunday: walk
Monday: 20 minute bike ride, 1 hr yardwork
Tuesday: Walk with Luke, 30 minute bike ride
Wednesday: 2 mile walk pushing both kids in the double stroller- Luke loved riding with Rebekah. We all had a good time!
Thursday: 3 hrs. yardwork
Friday: bike for 40 minutes
Saturday: 2 mile walk

I planted my spring garden this week and spent some time trying to revitalize our lawn after last summer's record drought. It was a good week.

The kids got sick on Thursday night, so I worked out indoors on Friday and Nathan watched the kids while I went out Saturday morning.

My eating has been atrocious, however. I think I just need to eat more in the beginning of the day. By after dinner time, I am hungry and tend to overdo it. Rebekah complicates things too. She eats more than Luke did and has a higher metabolism. It is hard for me to judge how much I actually need to eat in order to keep up with her.

Week 36 for Jessica

Sunday: nothing
Monday: nothing
Tuesday: 30 Day Shred, Level 1
Wednesday: 30 Day Shred, Level 2
Thursday: nothing
Friday: nothing
Saturday: 4.5 miles of running/walking with Adam (about 50 min.)

Yolanda, I'm sorry, I don't know of a good leasing office. But I hope you find something good!


Wks 5, 6 & 7 . . ?

I've lost track of where I'm supposed to be, so these are my best guesses at numbering.

Wk 5: Two 1 1/2 hour toddler speed walks with Ted
Wk 6: One body shaping class
Wk 7: 2 body shaping classes

I've been more busy than I like to be, which has interfered with the work-out schedule. I want to get back to exercising 3 x/week and will try to do that next week. Saturday mornings just aren't working for me right now, so I need to figure something else out.

I am also going to start using a calorie counting app this week. I'll let you know how it goes.

Finally, I could use some help from those of you who live in Southern California or have connections in Southern California. Ted and I are considering moving to Southern California, but we are in need of some affordable housing to make it happen.

Ted was accepted to two law schools in Southern California - one in Costa Mesa and the other in Fullerton - so we are looking for housing close to either place (Fullerton, Brea, Chino Hills, Whittier, Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Tustin, Long Beach, etc., etc.).

Would you happen to know of anyone who is looking to rent out an apartment, condo, or small house, or even an affordable complex to look into or a good leasing agency? We'd like a 3 br, 2 bath place to live if we can come up with one that is affordable. If not, we will settle on a 2 bd, 2 bath.

I'd appreciate any help you could give us. Thanks in advance for your help.

Emily's week 21

Saturday - hatha yoga (60 minutes)
Sunday - nothing
Monday - nothing
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - nothing
Friday - yogaworks body slim (30 minutes) - part of a dvd

I don't like the dvd (which is why I didn't do all of it.) It is very western "weight loss" style yoga, which I'm starting to think isn't yoga at all. :) The instructor is a little too chipper/peppy/cheerleader for my taste, and while she pays lip service to "staying with your breath", she moves so fast that we'd all be hyperventilating if we tried to breathe in sync with the movements! Also, she talks way too much.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get back to class. Please, sick children, get well!

Tuesday: Walk with Luke, some gardening
Wednesday: Prevention Belly

Emily's week 20

Saturday - hatha yoga (60 minutes)
Sunday - nothing
Monday - nothing
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - hatha yoga (60 minutes)
Friday - nothing

I'm switching from calling my yoga classes "restorative" to "hatha" to reflect more accurately what I'm doing. When I started, there were a bunch of middle-aged women in the group who preferred "relaxing yoga", and Allison was teaching to them. About two weeks ago I talked with her after class and asked if some more challenging poses could be added. She responded enthusiastically, and now the class includes a lot of poses that can be simplified, but which also allow me to work to the edge of my ability. I'm loving it.
