so much to blog, so little time…

SO, we had Layla’s birthday party yesterday, but her actual birthday is tomorrow, so after the festivities are over, I’ll share some pics of all that. First, though, I want to chat about resolutions! I know many people don’t like to tie themselves down to New Years resolutions, but I have made a few for the past several years and have managed to keep them all. In 2009, I resolved to cook dinner more (and learn to like cooking more) and I definitely succeeded! I did not resolve to lose any weight last year, however, last March I had a bit of a wake-up call and thus, I lost 45 pounds between March and October and have held steady since.

SO….this year, I am going to become a runner! I have been very inspired by my friend Tara, )who ran a marathon last year!!) and I’m going to start the Couch to 5k running program this week. I do very well with strength training, but I really struggle with cardio. I asked Casey if he wanted to sign up for a 5k with me in the Fall and at first he said, “no way, I hate running” (although he’s good at it, thanks to the army 😉 but later that day, he siad he would love to! The only obstacle was that it’s snowy here, but Casey reminded me that I can go to the base gym for free whenever I want (duh). So there ya go. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. In the meantime, I’d love to hear your goals for 2010 in the comments!

  2. I need to restart my running career as well. I ran a half marathon a few years ago and it was fabulous! We live in Utah and the winters just kill me. I don't have a gym to go to, so it's run in the snow or don't run. Guess what I always choose? lol.

    You will be to 5K distance in no time at all.. you could sign up for a spring 5K.

  3. Awesome! I'm going to run again this year, too. I am waiting for the snow to just back off already though and sidewalks to emerge. Maybe in a few weeks I'll get out there.
