No better time than now...

I'm going to be a little vulnerable for a bit. I need accountability. I need it something fierce. I don't feel healthy and I'm not particularly happy with my lifestyle {re: limited exercise and tons of junk food} My solution: a weekly blog update on my progression to fitness.

Here's my game plan:
1. Sean and I are going to start training for races...small races at first but hopefully it will grow into something bigger. So I'm hoping the buddy system is encouraging.
2. I got some new kicks that have Nike+ technology to help me track my running better.
3. My sweet dad signed me up for 3 months to get me kickstarted at a swanky gym right by my office
4. I'll post my weekly running distances and other important numbers. I'm a big believer in transparency and hope that the added accountability from blogland will be just what I need to motivate me towards a healthier lifestyle.

  I will be realistic and honest as I share with you both my successes and challenges on this new journey -- everything from running breakthroughs to tripping on the treadmill.

  1. Good for you! You can do it! I am in a similar situation. I want to train for the Disney 1/2 marathon in January but I am scared to commit. They say nothing happens without risk. You go girl!

  2. I am a firm believer that if you say it out loud you will stick with it. I started working out a little over two years ago and love my new healthy lifestyle. It's such a wonderful example for my kids. I'm training for my first half marathon in September. Good luck. I look forward to read about your journey. :)

  3. Good for you Nicole! My mom has those shoes and loves them. I'm excited to hear about your fitness journey!

    P.S. Did you see the pic I posted on FB of Natalie in the onsie you made? She loves it!

  4. Good luck! I started working some running into my gym routine and I've never felt better! So jealous of your new shoes! ;)
