An Intro From Carlyn

Hello Everyone,
It is early in the morning of my day to post - 
Here's a little more info about me and my goals!

Currently I work over night, so on my nights off, my posts will probably be at interesting times.
While you are sleeping, I am working and visa versa...but it works for me right now.
I will be looking for a teaching job for the fall, but right now I really enjoy what I am doing.
Along with my paying job, I also work with the youth at my church and am a Special Olympics Coach.
These kids keep me busy and are one of my big reasons for wanting to get into shape!  
I also love to travel and go on mission trips - I am hoping and praying that God will grant me a long term mission trip in the near future - but I am waiting on His timing!

My long and short term goals include:
Loosing 70 lbs (which I will keep track on here)
Eating healthier (which is a constant struggle for me)
To have more energy and endurance 
(which happens even with a little time in the gym)
More strength in my Knee 
(I had a run in with a 2x4 when I was younger)
To run a Marathon 
(This is a LONG term goal, I have a lot to do before this!)

Some Excuses I use to keep my self from being more active:
My KNEE - but as long as I ice it, it does better
My TIME - I seem to waste it a lot...I'm working on this!

What I am already doing to encourage my fitness goals:
I have joined a Gym - Anytime Fitness - which works great for my schedule!
I have stopped drinking carbonated drinks - which is hard (I'd love a DDP)
I am keeping a journal of my workouts and weight loss.
I reward myself with a Subway Sandwich if I work out at least 5 days in one week.
I am wanting to add swimming in the river (see pic above) to my workout, but I am waiting for it to get a little warmer, so that I can go in the mornings and right now it is too cold!

I am excited about this adventure and I know that with God's help and my sister's encouragement, that I will be able to reach my goals!

Thanks for Joining My Journey,
