How'd May Go?

I really dislike Blogger for deleting my entire post...barring the top line!!
This is my second attempt at my May Totals.

Monthly Miles Ran:  253.9 (Year total: 1349.7)

Highest Mileage Week: 5/02 - 5/06 (DM Weeks) 63 miles Rest Days Taken: 0

The Streak: April 30th was Day # 387 of the streak ~ 3200.09 miles,

524 Runs ~ ave. 8.3 miles per day/ 58 miles per week


None.  So sad.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:

Light Carmal Vanilla Brownie Ice Cream

Non-food Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:

Skipping my a.m. run for no reason at all

Which Outfit did I Wear the Most:

What We Are Watching:

With the Kiddos: Surf's Up

My Viewing:  If it's been released, I've seen it!
On the treadmill.  I guess I'll be movieless for a little while

Funniest Kid Quote:

When my treadmill broke I cried.
I am a sissy.  I attach feelings to the memories around "things."
So when the treadmill broke, it wasn't just the treadmill broke.
The kids quickly came downstairs.
S'ghetti started offering her loving reassurance.  LBM gave me a hug and then looked up from his embrace of my legs and said,
"Mommy, you nee' a ban'aid?"

Current Triumph:
Not having a complete meltdown when the treadmill broke
Not allowing the streak to end

Current Goals

To stop not dealing with work that needs done at our houses
To stop not dealing with issues with Hubbs
To stop not making the kids follow the rules
To stop not dealing with issues


To work on my overall fitness
To keep a minimum of a 50 mile week
To lose 15 pounds

Current Blessing:
This day and all the ones that God gave me before it.

Current Excitement:

Family: We are getting a pool!

Running/Fitness:  Starting Insanity

Current Concern:
 Family:  Finding a way to merge the needs and wants of our diverse family

Running: Figuring out a plan to reach my 100 mile goal
and have my family support it.

How did your May days add up?


  1. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That's better. ;)

    A POOL! So exciting! I have wanted a pool forever. Alas, no room in our tiny townhouse backyard.

    Good luck with your goals for June and keep smiling!

  3. I can't wait to read about Insanity! I watch the p90x infomercial during mid-night feedings like it's an episode of the Biggest Loser!

  4. You are AMAZING and AWESOME and INSPIRING. I have no doubt you will accomplish your goals and things will fall into place to ease your concerns.

    Enjoy the pool!!!

  5. You are an amazing woman. So logical, thoughtful, balanced and driven. I'm thinking of you and hoping that things start allowing you to deal with them in a beneficial way.

  6. 15 pounds?!! You'll fade away into nothingness!

    That ice cream sounds amazing. I'm sort-of glad that we don't have it over here or else your guilty pleasure might just become my guilty pleasure.

  7. I would love a pool! I could go swimming every day, and get all muscly!


  8. You are very inspirational.
    Please, don't mention ice cream. That is the only sweet thing I have a hard time saying no to.

  9. 15 pounds?! where are you going to lose it from? are you cutting off a leg, I think that would really hamper your running.

    ammmmmazing streak!!!
