I have mentioned on here a couple of times about starting to make changes to be a healthier person. So far, I am doing pretty good on starting healthier habits. My SIL has been doing some of the same things in her house. We were talking the other day about what has been working for me, traded some recipes and some tips. Her kids are doing a program that will log the miles that they run at school that allows them to participate in the Music City Marathon, and they will actually run the last mile of the children's marathon on race day. Well one thing led to another and I told her I had a goal of competing in my first 5K race some time this year. I found a program online From Couch to 5K and we challenged each other to start this training program. Yikes, other people know my goals and that makes me more accountable! Plus a little good natured competition is a great incentive for both of us. Since her kids are already training at school, we decided to challenge the rest of the family too. Hopfully before the end of the year we can all compete together as a team.
I made myself a journal a while back to track my progress, my Riley Get Fit Journal. I decided to make a journal for my SIL to record her progress too. I started with this image from Mo Manning. I thought this was a fun image to encourage our weight loss goals. As I was going through some papers, I found that black and white number paper and decided it would go great on this journal. I have had these punch out letters since I first started scrapping and the colors matched perfectly. For some reason in the photo they don't stand out as much, but IRL they are a little easier to read. Thanks for stopping by!
