Carlyn is the middle child (23) her desire is to get in shape and have the endurance to keep up with the youth she works with. Emmalee is the youngest (17) and is already an athlete. But now her sport and time is high school is almost over and she wants to stay in shape!

Our blog is a way for us to encourage each other and help each other reach our goals. Please feel free to follow along! You can follow each sister or just the one you find interesting or have things in common with!

Ara's days to post are Monday and Thursday.
Carlyn's days are Tuesday and Friday.
Emm's days are Wednesday and Saturday.

And we'll throw in tips and fun stories as we go along! Welcome to our blog!! -The 3 Sisters

p.s. We would also like to say that this is to help encourage us to keep up the good work and help us stay on track BUT we know we could not even do this by ourselves or as 3 sister's with out God by our side pushing us along!

Back in San Marcos

Well - I haven't left ... but Emm, Ara, and Mom are in for the weekend!  We plan on taking Emm's senior pics this weekend (hint the last post of mine).

Ara and I have committed (and we have decided Emm and Mom will do it too) that this weekend when we go out to restaurants to eat that we will pair off and share meals!  Keeping each other accountable so that we don't over eat - cuz when it is good it could happen!

DADDY - got us each pedometers!  So we will be using those in our next challenge (*wink*wink*)!  But I will have to figure out an appropriate amount of steps before its posted and wait until our current challenge is over!
We all thank you every much and are excited to use them!  
We love and miss you dad!  Have fun this weekend getting things done!  WE LOVE YOU!!!

Kevin - we miss you too!

You three are doing GREAT! I am glad to hear of your progress, dedication and encouragement for each other.

Here is an idea for using the pedometers. Ware them this weekend and monitor your number of steps each day. Average the total, which will probably be more than normal considering all the activity you have planned for this weekend. Take each of your averages and set a goal to beat the average by 10%, 15%, or what ever percentage you chose. Start at a reasonable rate. Set the goals for a daily/weekly and monthly achievement. Set an ultimate goal that whoever reaches that goal and maintains it for 30 days wins the prize.

I love each of you more than you know. Have fun and enjoy your weekend together.

Just delete this. I am experimenting with logging on using my blogger account.

Carlyn said...

Now Dad,

Are you the one supplying the prize?? :)

Love you!!

Bob said...

Maybe. What do you think a good prize would be? And maybe, if I provide the prize, you have to beat me too!

OK. Stop laughing. I know you don't think beating me would be all that hard.

Love you 2


Carlyn said...

The question isn't who is going to beat who, its who is going to get hurt trying!! :)

Ara and I both walked over 5000 steps yesterday! I'm thinking 5000 would be a good start and then we can increase from there each week!

What do you think??

Ara said...

I think that's a good goal Carlyn. My pedometer said it was a little over 2 miles (although I have yet to put in my stride length). And that is very doable to start out with :)

Carlyn said...

I agree - - Lrt's see what a couple of normal days look like on the pedometer... then we can decide

Bob said...

5038 for me today. = 2.38 miles. And that is on a rather normal Sunday.
