Get Fit

Maisy and I are going on a little diet...

We went to the vet yesterday and found out that Maisy had gained 8 pounds!!! Poor little baby was so embarrassed! 

Ironically enough, I have also gained about 8 pounds in the last 6 months since starting my job. Between Moe's and Great American Cookie (double doozies = heaven), there is a whole lot of temptation in that building. 

So little Maisy Mae and I are watching what we eat and bringing a little more moderation into our diet. I'm all about moderation- I don't believe in completely cutting things out because then it just makes me want it that much more. I've also been chugging water like it's my job. Now there's one more thing I need to conquer but it's the hardest part....exercise.

Remember this post? Yeah...that lasted all of 2 workouts. That's pretty typical. Sometimes I make it to 3. So this time, I'll shoot for 4 and then go from there. My friend Meghan has been talking about Couch to 5k and it sounds like it may be a good fit for me. She didn't work out before doing this (like me) and now she runs crazy distances all the time (future me?)

I have always haaaaaated running, but I'm willing to give it another shot. Meghan told me there is an iPhone app where you can listen to music and then it will tell you when to run/walk! Sounds easy enough! Anyone else have any experience with this or recommendations for a couch potato newbie?

PS- Meghan is having this awesome giveaway going on! Run over there and check it out!

PPS- A little addition to the vlog. Dirty Dancing is right up there with my other favorite movies. Watching it now (for the 100th time) and just can't get enough of Mr. Swayze.

I need some motivation too -- If you find something that works -- let me know. I always find something that looks interesting as far as workouts or diets go -- then I stop. ahh.

I hope life is good for you.

I think its funny, if my little dog gained about 1lb that would be 1/5 her weight, which is A LOT haha. Tell Maisy she'll be alright.

I have trouble resisting a double doozie when I go to the mall.
I have been terrible about exercise for the last couple weeks and need to kick my but back in gear.

Good luck with running!

Dirty Dancing is probably my fav movie of all time.... Nobody puts baby in a corner!

Yayy! You won't be sorry about couch to 5k! It really keeps you motivated to doing it! And thanks for tagging me. :) You can blame me if you don't like it. I'll mail you a check for the app cost ;)
