Lose It Big

From losing to living

A Quickie

I just thought I would post a quickie this morning. I leave for the beach tonight. The forecast is rain and thunderstorms. But I have at least one mom trying to fix the weather for me…THANKS! I have been there before when it has rained. It’s usually a downpour and then the sun comes back out. I am crossing my fingers for that.

Every time I take a vacation, I worry about something. Will the van make it? Will the kids not fight? Will I forget something? Where is my rum? yada yada yada! I was up this morning at 3 am. I couldn’t sleep. So, I decided to go running. That makes it 3 days in a row. My back is feeling much better (maybe because I am worried about other things). I put an app on my phone called Noom CardioTrainer. I am high tech now. I always run for a certain amount of time so, I never really know how far I run. This app kept telling me how far I was and it even tracked me as I ran. It plotted my route on a map. It showed me my times for each mile. If I knew how to take a screen shot picture on my android phone I would show you. Anyway, I found out I run about an 8 minute mile. I burned 765 calories. My average speed is a little over 7 mph and I ran 6.6 miles in a little more than 50 minutes. This was all before 5 o’clock this morning. This smart phone is making me feel smart.

    Depends on the Android phone, but to screen shot mine I have to push the unlock/lock button and the home button at the same time!

    And I’m glad your back is maybe sorta kinda getting better.

    I have the Evo 4G, no screen shot without rooting the phone and i just am not willing to do that. Google it and see if your phone is capable 😉 Have fun on your trip and pack the rum first. when traveling with children it is the most important thing to pack! Enjoy your vacay!

    I had beautiful weather for you all day today. 😉 Little rain tonight but tomorrow should be nice.
    I use endomondo on my android phone and I love it. I can also track it on the computer on their website as well. Great job on your runs! I am jealous you are running so far already.
