I figure one of the best ways to stay on track is to tell others what your plans are and then you have to feel like a goober it you don't follow through. So, I have a couple of things I would like to start and I figure if I share them with you I have a better chance at succeeding.

First, I want to read the Bible all the way through. I have always wanted to and have tried many times but end up getting distracted. My plan for achieving this goal is to read at least five pages of my Bible each day. If I read five pages each day I can finish the Bible in less than a year.

Second, I want to lose my baby weight. I am currently nine pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight from Rowynn but I am fourteen pounds away from where I started with Abigayl. Therefore, I would REALLY like to lose 15 pounds over the next few months. I am not trying to get into a bikini or anything, I just want to feel good about myself.

To achieve this goal, I am going to take on the "Couch to 5k" program. My sister-in-law and my mom have both done it and became runners from this program. I have seen what running did for their bodies and their energy and feel that this is something I can stick with.

Along with the 5k program, I am going to use my postpartum Lisa Hart workout DVD. I only plan on using the yoga and Pilate's parts since I will get my cardio from running.

I started the workout DVD today and I am going to try to get out and run tonight. I will keep you updated every Monday on my progress with both goals.

LOVE the goals, baby! There's a FB page called Daily Mile where you can record your workouts. You might like using it.

Yay! Couch to 5k is great! I blog about it all the time, and I'm currently doing it to build up my stamina to train for the Tulsa Run. You will love it. Follow it to a T and it's easy. 3 days a week, 30 minutes start to finish with your warm up and cool down included!! It's getting warm enough to take Rowynn in a stroller now! Also, I find another way to stay accountable is joining a group of some kind. I have joined a running group and it's changed my LIFE! LOL. But Also, they have a "mommy" running group in or around Tulsa. I can email you the info if you'd like! Great way to socialize and exercise!
