Long time reader, first time blogger

So... I've never blogged before.
I'm a very private person, so it feels unnatural to write about anything personal and then post it to the internet. But they say that the more involved you are with something, the more likely you'll stick with it, so we'll see how it goes.
I need an exercise routine. I like routines. Routines are good. I know what to expect with a routine. The problem is that I'm lazy. I get tired, and then I can't motivate myself to get up and do anything.
I make goals. And then I completely ignore them (even the ones that I really want! WTH?). How on earth do I make a goal and achieve it when I'm so darn lazy? Maybe I'm lacking accountability. Maybe I need to make my goals public so that other people will know if I achieve it or fail to get off my arse and get moving.
So, my goal is: To Run (/jog/walk) the Beat The Blerch (Virtual) 10K the weekend of September 12-13.
I've not been jogging in months. So I've got some training to do. I do not expect to be able to run (read: jog) the entire 10K, but I do plan to be able to jog/walk it.
My plan, to start with:
Walk/jog 3 days a week at least 30 minutes. Mostly in the evenings, but possibly in the mornings on the weekends.
Do the strength training DVDs from Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution 4x week. Weekday mornings.
Yoga at least once per week (I used to have a daily yoga routine, but that fell apart and my body is really feeling the lack of flexibility.)
The plan is to blog daily - or nearly so - with my completed exercises.
