Setting our goals.

I would like to fill you all in on my exercise and weight loss progress.  It's not very exciting to you I'm sure, but I figure if I post it on my blog. then it will motivate me to do better.  I started the prisim diet Sat Jan. 2nd.  It is torture.  I am willing to suffer to alittle to reach my goal.  This morning I started jogging.  Yes, you read it right, jogging.  I can't believe it either.  I met my friend Debra at the Lowes parking lot in Lindale, and it began.  Debra use to be a personal trainer,  so I am soooo taking an advantage of her expertise.  We jogged for 20 min.  and the temp. was 22.  There were patches of ice in the parking lot.  I have to say I am proud of myself for making it 20 min.  By the time we were through I was huffing an puffing, not to mention wheezing like crazy.  I have to tell myself that it will all be worth it when I can fit into a size 10.  That is my goal.  

Another goal we have set before ourselves as a family is reading our bibles together daily.  At some point after Matt gets home from work, we all sit around the dinning room table and read.  It is so precious to see Maleah read,  we let her tell a little story about the pic. in her childrens Bible.  Next it goes to Mason,  this little guy surprises me daily.  He is so smart.  He is actually reading out of  the same Bible Maleah does.  Though he doesn't get every word, he sure does try.  Morgan and Meagan follow along in their Bibles,  we usually let them read 15-20 verses a piece.  This way we all get a chance to read and have a small discussion over what we have read This year is really starting off good.


  1. AWWWW how sweet! I just posted about us doing this! We're all on the same page :) We should encourage each other to keep it up! :) Way to go on the jogging- I would have died after 5 min! Love you!

  2. I am so proud, jog and blog all in one day.
