Hello from Ara

Well today is my day to post!

I am very excited to get going with this blog... I have struggled with weight my whole life and I am so fed up with it! I am ready to get working and luckily I have a two great sisters that are willing to help me out!

Major Goals:

One of my major goals is to get my body ready for children. Not just the having children part.... but the keeping up with children part. Being around several wonderful ladies and their kids in our sunday school class, I realized that I am not even physically fit enough to chase a 2 yr old around for an extended time.

My husband and I want to encourage health and fitness into our children from a young age.... so that means I need to get my booty in gear before they get here. We are not planning on kids for another couple years so its the perfect time to focus on me and get ready!

Favorite workouts:

I am the proud owner of a Gazelle Fitness machine... I love it because I can use it while I'm in front of the television! (Isn't that a horrible reason?) But it is good because it actually distracts my brain from its usual comments, such as 'you have so far to go - its not worth it' or 'there's still a little bit of ice cream in the fridge, finish it off and start your exercising tomorrow'!

I also love tennis, walking and biking. I haven't done a lot of biking but I am working on it!

Biggest Downfalls:

I LOVE FOOD! Especially cheesy food.... like Mexican or Italian!

I hate sweating.... so much.

I am lazy.

So anyway, there is a little about me. I am striving to overcome my downfalls and reach my goal of getting fit before kids come along!

Currently I am doing a fruits and vegetables detox week. I am eating nothing but fruits and veggies and drinking water (mostly...) But I am hoping to clean out a lot of the junk in my body and make way for healthy meals that I am already planning. My husband is trying to get healthy too so hopefully we will be able to support each other (and slap each others hands when we get to close to cake!)

These are the stats I will post each time I post on this blog so you all can watch my progress:
Current Weight: (not posting this yet... waiting until after veggie week)
Exercise since last post: (this is the first post but I exercised last night!)
Upper arm in inches: (waiting until after veggie week)
Bust in inches: (ditto)
Waist in inches: (ditto)
Hips in inches: (ditto)

Love to all, Ara
