It's January so...

It's time to inevitable commit to losing the last of the baby pounds (plus a few more I'd put on before that pregnancy). I'm not sure that the twenty remaining pounds from the last pregnancy really count as the remainder of the baby weight any more, but thinking of it that way gives me a bit of a timeline for unloading it - Julia will be three on February 14th - three years is long enough to carry that extra twenty so I'm going to aim to get rid of it by then. It may not be entirely realistic but it gives me something to shoot for so time to get on it. Instead of any fad approach I'm just going to eat healthier, try to get more sleep and exercise more (including as a stress reliever). Training for the half marathon should help (I've got a long way to go, 10K is about what I'm capable of running now and I want to be much faster). Anyway, I'll keep blogland posted on both counts - I hope not to disappoint.

I am on a quest to lose weight before our trip in September. I am aiming for 50 but will try to better that.

I have often thought about taking up running and making a half marathon a goal....especially since they do a marathon at Disney in January. Florida is a really good place to be in January....

I think that one year we should resolve to finally take that birthday trip that is few years overdue!! ;)

Agreed (re birthday trip)! Half marathon in January in Florida sounds pretty awesome! I would totally recommend taking up running, all you really need is good shoes, which is nice because it makes excuses harder.

Bonne chance! Are you on Twitter? If so, look for #1000kmin2010. Sounds like a lot, but it averages to only 2.9km a day...totally doable if you're training for a half anyway. We can do it together! (virtually, of course) Happy 2010!

Cool. I'm not on twitter, my embracing of technology only goes so far :) I'm tempted though...

Okay, I checked it out. Looks ambitious but doable. I may just be saying this because I'm always more motivated on week one than I am on say week 40 (or week three for that matter). I think I've done just under 23km this week, which probably means I'm due to burn out soon. At the very least, if I commit to this, I'm going to have to get better at charting distance (same probably goes for the half).
