The Storm after the Storm

As our days of ice, snow, and cold, are hopefully coming to an end, I have decided it is time to make a plan.

Tomorrow morning, I will wake up....I will document my weight and measurements of bust, waist, and hips, and take a before picture.  I invite you all to do this as well, and we can compare notes on improvements.  I will not post this information at this time, but I will post the photo.  Once I am comfortable with my progress I will release my starting stats.

After I get this icky info collected I will begin my exercise journey.  Tomorrow I plan to spend some time on the treadmill.  I don't want to overdo it, so I will do 15-20 minutes or until I feel like I must stop.

I plan to use the treadmill until the weather improves, which is when I will take some walks with my chocolate lab, Scarlet.  I also want to try some yoga, pilates, weight training, personal training sessions, plus maybe some dance classes or other fun classes.  I will even spend some time with my Wii Fit that really has never been used.

I am a bit nervous about getting started since once I start I have to keep to it.  This is a big commitment, but one I am ready for!  I don't even know where to start on goals, but I know I have to make one.  I don't want one that is too hard to meet, but I also don't want it to be too easy...lets start with....10 pounds lost by March 1, 2011!  Let's pray that I do it!

New Years Resolutions

It's January 31, 2011...we are one month into a new year.  A year loaded with new opportunities.  Essentially that is what this blog will be about.

Entering into 2011 I made two New Years Resolutions.  The first was to attend church on a very regular basis (I decided I could miss at the most once per month for being out of town, being sick, etc.)  The second is to loose some weight, get healthier, and all around be a better me!  I have been flawless on my first Resolution, as I have made it to church every Sunday in January, even when I was a bit ill.  The second has not gone so well.

We are going to focus much of my blogging on my second resolution.  I would love to share my triumphs with you, once I have them.

So now I invite you to join my blog.  Be part of my journey.  I will share my experiences; the good and bad.  I will share my knowledge.  By doing this blog I will now be held accountable for everything I do.  And now I ask you to make me be held accountable.  Please tell me your successes, as they will inspire me with mine.

This will be a long journey.  I want to loose a large amount of weight.  I want to live with no pain.  I want to be healthy.  I want to have children.  I want to be able to run a marathon.  I want to help others!
