Every morning I have good intentions. I read motivational and informative books. Some days I work out; most days I don't. If I am not recording my nutrition here, I don't eat healthfully and I evening snack a lot.

I know that I don't have much weight to lose. And really it's not about the weight. It's actually about the roll above my jeans and that fact that my running has become very sporadic.

My husband works out almost every day for at least an hour, does marathon length races and one ultra. He bikes and skis. Therefore, I only do those activities recreationally. I picked running a few years ago. Did a couple half marathons. Then virtually quit. My excuses are abundant and poor ones.

Things have to change for me. My health needs to become more important to me. I must start running regularly again and get to yoga more often. And my eating habits need to change.

Beginning again-today! I must be a better example for our youngest daughter....

    Just have fun with it, activities don't have to be competive to be effective. Maybe some different activities will provide more inspiration. You have the right ideas, now just find what you enjoy.

    Sounds like you are heading in the right direction! It is good that you want to be a better example to your daughter, but what if you just impressed yourself with how amazing it feels to make healthier choices! That would be a fabulous gift to yourself and your daughter.
