Walking Wednesday!!!

This week we started school, so in the mornings it is only me and Lyssa. A couple of my friends and I decided that on Wednesdays we are going to walk until playgroup. Today was our first go around the town. Here we are strollers, double stroller and a wagon full of kids and us women taking up half the street to walk. We live in a small town and there is not much traffic. We started at my house at 8am and walked until 9am. I am sore but it is a good sore. I used to workout for a hour to a hour and half everyday. Then summer happened and just seemed like I never had the time. Now with only one kid I am hoping I can get back into the swing of things. The thing is I hate running so as long as I do not have to run I can handle working out. I have set goals.. you know them things you set and have every intention of sticking to but sometimes do not. Here are my goals.

1. Work out at least 3 times a week....( Monday, Wednesday and Friday)!

2. Weigh in once a week..( I hate this part the most)!

3. Cutting back on my soda intake..( I know I am addicted to soda and if I just stop drinking it I go into withdrawals. I am a real bear to live with so that is why I have wean myself off it...) If I do not get some soda everyday I might not have a marriage at the end of the month....

4. Eating more fruits and veggies everyday. I do not feel I eat bad right now I just know I could eat better.

5. Once a week I am having a day to not stress.. NO WORK, I am not sure what day it will be I am hoping its Saturday or Sunday. Right now Sunday I spend cleaning the house and getting ready for the week. So Saturday is family day where we do something together. Maybe Fridays I can workout for a hour then do nothing but relax....

I know I should have at least ten more goals but I am starting off small. I need to get organized again. If any one has some good tips on getting organized please let me know.... I need a meal thingy that is where I am lacking at the moment. I need new recipes to try and get a dinner plan...


  1. Hi there! Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I have a suggestion for you if you need to catch bugs. Target has this little bug vacuum that sucks up the bug into a little container. It's very easy; my son used it for a bug project at school and it was so much better than trying to touch bugs or use a net. I think it cost about $10 when we bought it.

  2. Sounds like a good plan I use to walk the kids to school everyday until I started working. But I'm looking at getting a bike so I can walk them to school then bike over to work. It will be faster healthier and cheaper then taking the tank ;D
