I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

One week to go before I can start exercising!!! I have to admit I am a little nervous. Now there are no more excuses. Cheryl, Adam's cousin that lives across the street is going to join me in my run/walk program so that will be a great motivation. I'm using a program that I use when I have not run in a while. It forces me to start slow and work on my technique before I run for longer periods of time. I love to race and am kind of an athlete so it bothers me to take my time. However this program will do just that.
I will put up the program next week for those of you who are curious and/or want to join me!!
The program only makes you venture out three times a week and takes about a half hour of your time. Cheryl and I will be getting together once a week to stay motivated. With six small kids between us it is a little unrealistic to coordinate our schedules more than that.

This week I have to admit I'm feeling pretty skinny. I'm still 133 pounds but I'm fitting into more clothes and finally put away most of the maternity gear. Of course I'm wearing skirts so don't ask me to try on a pair of pants. That won't happen untill the fall :)

See you next Sunday June 24th at the six week mark!!!

Thats so awesome that you will have a workout partner. It helps keep the motivation level up, which will help you succeed.

Wow, I really miss running. I look forward to see what program you use!

Congrats on putting away the mat clothes! That has got to feel very good! Yay for you!
