. . . The Color Run . . .

I am sitting here anxiously awaiting the opening of registration for The Color Run. This will be my first 5k run to actually participate in. I have registered for a few Race for the Cure races but the weather was always either rainy or hot so i would pick up my shirt and that would be the end of my running. But i am going to do this one!! And i cannot wait to do it. It looks like SO MUCH FUN! And you get sprayed with a different color each time you finish 1k. We have a team and the name is Team Apple Poison. was created by my friend Michelle and is in honor of Woodchuck beer. We both call it Apple Poison. It tastes FABULOUS but it is poison because it makes you fat and you really shouldn't be drinking it. But, after the race, we will celebrate with Woodchuck and call it a day.
I have 5 months to get my tail totally back in shape! I.WILL.DO.THIS. Goal set and results will be achieved!

* Getting Back in Gear *

I told you that i was going to get myself back in shape...and that i am going to do! I am a day later than expected but we had a very busy, busy weekend so Monday was a little rough. But i am going to commit to eating better and exercising. A friend recommended TurboFire by Beachbody. I thought i would look it up and see what kind of videos they were...lots of good dance music and cardio. I decided to try it. It is a 90 day cardio conditioning program with Chalene Johnson. I hope to have it by today or tomorrow so i can get started! These videos look like fun...a little different from the Jillian videos that i previously purchased. I am excited so we will see how it goes.
Here is some info about TurboFire:

"This truly is a workout that's so much fun, you forget you're exercising!"


TurboFire classes include Fire Drills, also known as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

These drills push you to your max for up to 1-minute bursts, with quick recovery periods. Studies show that HIIT ignites your metabolism, enabling your body to burn more calories for up to 48 hours after your workout.

Not only that, with TurboFire, you'll work out less than half the time you normally would doing regular cardio—and burn up to 9x more fat.

- Discipline & Patience -

I have said MANY, MANY times that i am going to get my rear in gear and get back in shape. Well, i get started and then things come up and then i just quit! And how embarrassing that i have blogged about it and have not held myself accountable for what i have said and for what i need to do for me!! I have said it before and i will certainly say it again... I. AM. GONNA. DO. THIS. I really am. I am serious this time and i want to look and feel better about myself. This time i am going to finish what i start. Period. End of story! I will not let myself down and will not let you down either. I have a very busy weekend coming up or i would commit to start before Monday. But, come Monday...i am going to get back to it. I am going to be committed to eating healthy during the week and allowing myself two cheat meals on the weekends (this is the program in the book i am reading). I am also going to make time to exercise at least 5 times a week, if not more. I will get back to running as well. Running is something that i have always loved to do but have not been able to stick with lately. Even if i have to run inside on the treadmill, it is going to happen!! My goal is to be between 125-130 lbs. (would like smaller but this goal is attainable) and be back into a size 4 or 6.

~ Happy Birthday Chaty-Bug ~

Well, Saturday was by baby's 2nd birthday and i still cannot believe it! He is such a joy to me, JJ and Jax and we are SO happy that he is a part of our life. Jackson absolutely adores him and the feeling is totally mutual! Jackson even told me last night that he did not know what he would do if he didn't have him as a brother...made me all teary eyed. All of us spent the day together on started with me and Chayton going to Home Depot together. He ALWAYS wants to go somewhere and no one else wanted to go with me. We picked out plants and flowers and then came back home to the other boys. Then, we got ready and went to Salsa for Chayton's birthday lunch. The food was FABULOUS and the company was even better. Then we went home and hung out doing yard work and whatever Chayton wanted to do. It was a great day! His party is this coming Sunday and we cannot wait to celebrate again with more family!
