The changes I'm making...

This is my first....first post, first blog....I initially decided I wanted to start a blog because I started a new exercise program (for which I am very proud of myself) and I wanted to document my progress.  Jefferson ever so kindly told me it would get boring after the first few posts.  So I will add in my ramblings about my seldom boring life.  I have a wonderful husband that plays way too many hours of video games and two girls, ages 3 and 1 1/2.  See why its never boring?  I stay at home with the girls, however am an Independent Consultant for The Pampered Chef and work to make sure the girls are well rounded.

So, I recently decided I wanted to run.  Don't ask me why because I always said that I would never run anywhere ever.  Period. 

Then I randomly decided maybe I should try it.  As I was talking to a friend about this (yes, you Becky), she suggested a website for me to check out.  (www.fromcouchto5k.com)  I checked it out and decided I could do it.  I even had a friend volunteer to come over and do it with me after the girls were in bed, but I felt like it was something I needed to do on my own. 

So, I began.  And I have thus far done it three times.  Even though its crazy hot outside and we're going on vacation this week, I go and I wog (a combination of walking and jogging).  Yeah, about that.  Another friend told me about "yogging" after I explained I went wogging.  I was curious so I looked up yogging, which I couldn't find related to jogging, so I then looked up wog.  Whoops.  Probably shouldn't really use that word as its derogatory and offensive to many.  Guess i'll have to make up another word.
