JC Penny's

So I went into JC Penny's yesterday. WOW love the new format and what great prices. I think it was a good move for the company. I will definitely shop there more often.

Spring Cleaning

It has finally rained here on the Central Coast in California. Along with the rain was also the wind. So I have started my Spring cleaning. It is yucky and cold outside. I still have boxes to sort through from when we moved in over a year ago. I was able to talk my husband into getting a tool bag for the bike tools. The bag now sits next to the bikes which have been put up on a rack against the wall. No more tripping over them. Space and storage problems are hard to fix when you live in a small apartment. Both kids had to move back in. I don't mind that they are here, but my spare room is gone and part of my living room. I plan on getting a hide-a-bed so my son doesn't have to sleep on the floor. We tried an air mattress, (actually 2, both got holes in them), but it took up too much room. Thankfully my son is only here a few days a week. I guess that makes him a part-time live in. Anyway got a little off track.

Today and the rest of the week will be dedicated to Spring cleaning. Has anyone else started their Spring cleaning?

First Run

My daughter and I have made a deal. She needs to run to pass her PT tests for the Military and I need to get back to exercising. We are going to walk/run together to keep each other motivated. She will also be taking a core exercising class this semester. I will be working on my strength training at home.

Last night was the first run with my daughter. My daughter runs 2 miles. I walked/jogged while she ran. We figured out that I ran for a total of 1/2 mile. I did it in intervals. I think I will be able to run the full 2 miles in a few months. When I can run with my daughter then we will increase the distant. Next run is Wednesday. I will be running every other day.

I think working together and supporting each other we will meet our goals and be healthier and fitter this next year.
