Just Put One Foot in Front of the Other!

Hi! I'm April. I am a busy mom of 7; the oldest will graduate from college in May 2013, and the youngest was born in Sept. 2010. I want to be happy in my skin again. My plan is to track what I eat, make healthy choices, and bump up my fitness.

I commit to:
*do some kind of daily exercise, at least 15 minutes
*workout heavily at least 3 days a week, doing a combination of strength training and continuing my 10K training
*log 10 miles a week running/walking

WHERE AM I AT?!


Personal Information:
I live in SE MN on a small farm. My dh and I have 7 kids who keep us hopping. Our kids are the best!!! I love to garden and play piano. Last summer my family built a new raised bed garden, toning it down from my 1/2 acre. The new garden was awesome and do-able! We also raise our own beef and chickens. I love living in the country!!!

Other Information:
I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

Do not worry about anything. But in all things, with prayer and supplication, make your requests known to God.
Phil 4:6

Pray, hope, and don't worry.
~St. Padre Pio

Here we are in May already. I seen you ran today! good job. I wish the weather could cooperate as I am jsut 12 days from my 5K race.
I really prefer to run on the road but it's just not working out.
So I plug away when I have to on the treadmill.
I did manage to get my onions in the ground. That is about all I trust to do right now. After the race I might put the pea's in.
What are you planning for the rest of the week?
Talk to you soon.
Hugs

Hello April, just getting back to you after being inactive for a long time. I'm happy to see that you are still here. I know that we are gong to get Spring in spite of the snow forecasted tomorrow. I have most of my flowers and veggies planted under grow lights in my den and they look anxious to get out to the real garden. emoticon I bet that you are looking forward to getting out to he real garden as well. Take care Teresa

Good Morning April,
Has your snow melted yet? That storm missed us. It was however 15 degree's when I got up today. It's 42 now and I hope that holds out so I can run on the road when I get home at 6:30pm.
This a.m. I ran on the treadmill and made it 1 mile before stopping to walk.
I'm sure I wasn't the fastest but it's the small improvements we must recognize.
Tell me what you have been up to.

Are you staying warm down there?
I just can't believe this weather isn't giving UP!
Hope your week goes well.
I have one more shift and then 6 off.
Hoping to get taxes done and more exercise.
Hugs,
