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

Later he sent me an email asking what was the food on this new skinny butt diet. LOL He was close
He said he wanted to shed a few pounds with me.

Hi April,
Just checking to see how your fall is working for you. I have so much to do in the garden but my job keeps getting in the way. LOL
Back on the night shifts this week. Am hoping for a dry weekend coming up so I can clean the garden up and hoping also to till it before the snow starts to fall.
Hugs
Dee
