Well, its been a while but here I am!  Our sweet boy DJ is now 8 weeks old and its time for momma to take care of momma again!  I have realized how important it is for me to be not only healthy but strong so that I can take the very best care of my babies and feel good for myself.   I am the kinda woman that likes to have a plan (just ask Donnie).   So I needed a plan and a goal to work towards.  Yes, I can do push ups and lift weights but I need more of a vision than that to get to where I want to go.

So I called Wendy (my fab sister) yesterday and told her I needed a plan and of course I wanted her to join me.  We didn’t want to diet because that’s not our style, we want health and strength.  We decided to stick to healthy foods (but still not deprive ourselves of something we really want), drink 8 glasses of water a day, exercise 3 days a week for 30 minutes and then keep a daily conversation going about our progress.

Last night I started exercising and decided to put Bree in the marathon stroller and hit the road.  I ran/walked a couple of times around the block.  I felt great afterwards!  I started thinking about running in a race in a couple of months but then put it out of my head.  One hour later, I was watching tv and someone was training for and ran a 5k race.  hmmmm….  THEN, there was a scroll on the bottom of the screen telling you to go online to learn how to train for a 5k race!  SOOOOO…. October 9th, 2010, I will be running in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure!  I am so excited!

I told Donnie I was gonna do something and would need his support.  He immediately said “anything, I don’t care what it is.”  What a great guy I have!  I called my sister and she is gonna join me.  I then called my dad who is a runner from way back and he is in as well!  This is gonna be fun and I am excited about having a goal to work towards that helps me get stronger and healthier.
