    Hi, I just got back from hitting the treadmill in the workout room at the hotel and I’m definitely feeling more awake. I like a treadmill with its own TV screen – got my CNN fix. They also had those wet towels in a fridge that feel so good on my face and neck after a workout. And I didn’t feel rushed to get back to everything else like I do at home.

    Some advantages to being away from home but I am missing and worrying about the kids and feeling a little guilty about leaving them even though I know they’re having fun with their Grandy.

    I just did 25 minutes on the treadmill. Exercising is a great mood booster. For some reason people don’t believe me.

    Just back from a run (slower than expected, but feel good now). My hubby was jsut telling me to buy some more Quaker Oatmeal as he wants to start to eat better. What timing.

    It IS true! (And just looking at that picture improved my mood considerably, lol!)

    And now I’m off to go play at the pumpkin farm with my daughter’s kindergarten class (talk about a workout!)

    Got the three kids to school/preschool and went directly to a favorite running spot to get 4 quick miles in BEFORE errands! Made the errands feel like less of a chore — even if I didn’t manage a shower until 3:45pm!

    I went to the gym today and FINALLY added weight machines to my workout. I don’t know why I’m intimidated to move beyond a cardio workout but I have no more excuses after today.

    I just did 30 minutes of Prevention – Belly, Butt, and Tighs. I love working out to videos at home. And some of the older videos in my collection do feature women wearing the leotards and legwarmers.

    Even though I had already run/walked for an hour before reading this, I STILL took 15 minutes for some one-legged dead lifts and balancing poses to get rid of the kinks in my low back. Guess what, those 15 minutes worked like a charm. And what else? I did them at NIGHT (while watching Biggest Loser–nothing like a little Jillian to get you off the couch:-)
