Personal Fitness Goals

So, I decided to post my fitness goals online, so then I'm held accountable. I'm putting this on all you Post Its readers to keep me on my toes!!!! Next time you talk to me, be sure to see how I'm doing ;)

I am working out with a trainer, a mom at my preschool (and her daughter is BFF's w/Jessica). She just started up her business,
Moms B Fit (check out her website, Jessica and I were her work out models :) Plus, she has some great deals and info for moms! ) and has been helping me. We put together some of my goals:

Obviously the first goal is to lose the rest of the baby weight. Really only 10lbs or so. BUT I never lost all the baby weight from Jessica, thats another 10 lbs. So, I want to lose 20 lbs. I think we said in 6 months, but I can't really remember. At least the 10lbs in 6 month (that would be 9 months after Izzy was born. 9 months on, 9 months off).

My biggest goal though, is to run a 5k! I signed up for the
Turkey Trot in Oceanside on Thanksgiving. I have never, ever done any kind of race before, but I did used to run on a regular basis. I haven't ran since I got pregnant with Jessica, though, and I started to crave it when pregnant with Izzy! So I signed up, and I want to run the whole thing! Don't care about my time (though my problem when running is pacing myself- I always want to run too fast!) Just want to finish. Its about 3 miles. I should be able to do it, its just finding the time to train!

I also want to be able to do my "man" push ups again. I can still do a few, but not as many as I used to be able to!

Oh- and to get new running shoes. Thats not really a fitness goal, but it is an necessity. Its actually really sad that I lost them. I had them when pregnant, and wore them when I worked out. But they got lost in the chaos on non-use that was the weeks after Izzy was born :( And really, as much as I love shopping and spending money (that I don't really have), running shoes is not something I want to spend my money on. Bummer.

So those are my small fitness goals.
I'll keep you all posted on it ;)


  1. it always seems like the last ten pounds is the hardest to lose :( But I know you can do it!

  2. cool! accountability is a BIG motivator! I have a workout blog with my sisters-in-law and that's how I started running in 2008. check it out
