About Us......

We are three sisters working to get into or stay in shape! Ara is the oldest (26) and is trying to lose weight and get in shape before having children with her husband. 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!

Its Been Awhile

So I have not done very good - I'm sorry! 

I have not gone a worked out like I have wanted either!

I have been walking more!  I walked to work the other day - and as long as the weather is nice and isn't going to rain buckets on me the way there or back I will walk (or unless it would make me late)...

I did complete the no sweet challenge and so did mom!!!  WHOOP!!  
I am trying to keep the sweets to a minimum still and so is Mom!

I am in charge of the Pee-Dough-Meter Challenge

This is what I would like us to do -starting Sunday, record the number of steps you take from Sunday to the next Thursday - that gives us 5 days of data - and from there we will find out the average number of steps each of us take.  

Then, our challenge will be to beat our average by 10% for one week Starting Fridays (since that is my post day :)  ) , the next week we will average the previous week and again try to beat that by 10%.  This could mean that instead of sitting down to watch TV, we talk a walk, or instead of driving to the grocery store for that one non-perishable item, we walk - to help in our number of steps.

Start righting down your number of steps - I have been keeping track of them in my phone - but it is up to you how you would like to do it - I could make a page on the blog if that would be easier - just let me know!  

Have a great day!
