So happy i have this little place to jot down how my journey is going. I started eating right and exercising three weeks ago.. then i found spark people when i was looking for motivations. Im not really over weight i only need to lose 18 lbs till i get to my goal weight but i am so far out of shape i cant even last 2 min on the trampoline with my kids. I normally play co-ed softball in the summer time and in the shape i am in now i wont even be able to run the bases with out dying. I started by tracking cals on loseit.com then bought an elliptical for a steal and started out by doing 1/4 mile 2 times a day. by the middle of the week i was able to do 1/2 mile in one set. i was so stoked. I HATE running with a passion but i have three children and i babysit an extra one. So getting to the gym is next to impossible. Im not much for work out vids since my tv mostly consists of Mickey Mouse Club house through out the day. We are the busiest family on earth. My oldest son is in the middle of wrestling, beginning of baseball, my 5 yr old little girl is just starting tball and we are active church member. Which mean i teach sunday school, teenagers, sing and do occasional nursery work. Oh ya we have NO TIME. BUt i started making time. When my kids nap or are nice and quiet im running. I roll out of bed every morning before i do ANYTHING and do 30 bicycle crunches, 20 pushups and 30 squats...i found that i get a TOTAL work out high and it really sets the rest of my day. I have a wonderful friend that is a cross country runner as my accountability partner. She runs 5-7 miles each day and even though im barely at 1/2- 1 mile she is great inspiration and very encouraging. I am however having trouble with my husband. Im not normally one to complain about this publicly but i dont know anyone here so im ok with it.He is amazing and we have a true fairy tale relationship...BUT since i started talking about these goals and started these eating habits, running i have seen him physically laugh at me. When i first told him i was going to start running he really laughed.....i know that i hate running but as a stay at home mom that live very far into the country so i have no other choices to get into shape......Im really trying to figure out the reason behind the lack of encouragement from him....it hurts and ive just started ignoring him. Ok well this is my first blog post....there is no great grammar in this but i am typing quickly since i have little ones to chase around......TILL next time!

    And my husband did the same thing, until he started seeing my results. Now it has motivated him to get his butt up and do the same!
