A new blog

I need to lose weight, and have been talking about losing 10-15 pounds for almost a year. I haven't done anything about it because I knew Kevin and I would most likley be trying for another baby (Clara). I knew I would be able to sport a bikini being big and pregnant, but now, NO WAY!

Now, I am back to the weight I was when I got pregnant with Clara. I am ready to lose the weight I have gained with the girls. I am not sure if Kevin and I will go for #4, and even if we do, I am ready to make the commitment to lose about 10 pounds. I want to feel good about myself, and right now, I do not.

When I was married 4.5 years ago, I weighed about 115-118 pounds, now, I weigh about 130. I was a rockin' 110 in college; in the best shape of my life. I want to feel that good again. You may say I don't look like I need to lose weight, but I certainly feel it, and my body needs it, too. I need to get my body in better shape, even if I don't get back to my wedding weight.

I've had about one year to prepare myself mentally. I've always said Spring 2010 I would begin. Here we are in 2010, and March is approaching. I have been trying to think of the best way to do this. It is hard with three little girls to make time for the gym. I would much rather try to do it with my girls. The hard part....I don't run. I've thought about starting to rollerblade again, and I could do that with our double stroller, too. I am also not motivated enough to work out in front of a TV either on a regular basis either. I have thought long and hard about how I am going to lose this weight, and I am going to learn to run. Yes, me, the anti-runner. Please don't laugh!

In order to keep me true to myself, I thought I would start a blog (separate from this) about running for 90 days. I am going to give myself 90 days to make an opinion on running, and in that time, I hope to lose a little bit of weight, and more importantly, get my body in shape.

I hope it works. I am ready to do something good for myself. It is something I will be able to do with my girls, my husband, my friends, and neighbors. Once my blog is up and running, I will post the address.

I need some ideas on what I should name my new "running blog"...........what do you think? Leave a comment below!


  1. i think having another baby may be easier! just kidding. if anyone can do it YOU can! good luck--can't wait to read about it, because i certainly won't be running...

  2. I think so, too! I can hide all my belly blubber behind the babe! :)

    Any ideas on the name???

  3. Ok, I love this idea. I hate running, but can I join you on the eliptical????

    Name ideas:
    Relay for Self
    Running from the Blubber
    Reducing the Rolls
    ( i want you to know at this point I am laughing all alone at my table....I needed this today!!!)
    Jogging off the Jelly-Belly
    (ok, now I am really cracking myself up!!)
    Sprinting Toward Skinny

    Ok, enough from me.....hope you got a good laugh at least! :) I know I did.

  4. Those are some Awesome & clever names from Jen ;)
    I'll be praying it goes well. I'm not quite the same as I was in college either, and right when I get back into my old jeans I end up pregnant again. lol. Someday ;)

  5. I love 'Running from the blubber' ha ha ha - that is classic!!!

    I can definitely fit into my jeans, but I'm not diggin' the muffin top that goes with!

  6. Ahhhh, the muffin top. Maybe you call it Melting the Muffin Top! HAHAHAHA!!! I worked out today...ouch! I keep putting off getting it into my weekly routine and I just had to do it. I put a barricade in front of the elliptical and went for it. Leah was well behaved...however, I needed some help from Barney. Oh well. I guess I need to invest in some magazines.
