About Me

I am a wife and mom who has Martha Stewart aspirations and gets stuff done with the grace of Lucille Ball. I would love you to join me on my journey and maybe have some laughs along the way.

New Stage

NYC MarathonImage by Pabo76 via Flickr

Well, I have decided that I am going to try and run marathon. Not just a 5k or a 10k, but a big marathon, like the Boston or New York marathon. Of course, it will be quite a while before I am able to do that. I will start by running the 5k and 10k's as well as half marathons to get ready, and hopefully I will be able to run at least one or two 5k's by the end of this summer.

I have decided to do this because I need something to keep me in shape, I need some sort of goal to stay motivated to work out. Besides losing weight and being healthy of course, I find that if I have some sort of goal I tend to stay on track.

I am the first to say that I am not in the best shape of my life, well, I am actually in the worst shape of my life, unfortunately I have really let myself go. I am at my heaviest weight, and until recently, I did not work out. Starting about 3 weeks ago, I started eating right again, as well as exercising 6 days a week. I started working out sporadically about a month ago, and religiouslya few weeks ago. Right now I have been doing an hour on the elliptical machine, doing a "Zumba" class, as well as pilates and yoga.

So, I hope that going for a goal of the marathons will help keep me in shape. I will try and track my progress on here as well.
