What is this blog all about?

This blog is my way of sharing with the world (ha, ha) my goals and journey to meet them!!  The original goal was set at the same time as the blog address...yes, I intend to lose 80 pounds in 40 weeks.  This all began on February 14, 2011.  The final weigh in will be November 21, 2011.  Starting weight was 238.5...**altered goal is 88.5 pounds, so the goal weight is 150.  I am a 5'9", 31 year old female with 4 children currently under the age of 5.

Goal #2 came about after a couple months of weight loss by diet alone.  I decided to incorporate exercise and a close friend mentioned a half marathon coming up in September!!  I signed up to really lock myself in, and began working out.  Another friend recommended the Couch to 5K program (found at http://www.coolrunning.com/), and the training began!  (C25K completed July 8, 2011 and first 5K ran was July 4, 2011!)

Goal #3 is in the form of a small competition.  The month of June, 2011, will be a weight loss duel between myself and my 29 year old sister!  We have both been lifers in the dieting game, and she mentioned being ready to lose.  I was getting a little bit tired of only competing with myself, so I welcomed any challenge to get re-FIRED UP!   (After a full month, Audrey lost 7 pounds and it never was determined how much "sister" did or did not lose.)

Goal #4 is a mini-challenge amongst close friends.  Ashley and I both completed a 5K run on July 4, 2011, and have goals to beat our time at another 5K in mid-August.  Audrey's time for the 4th of July was 28:20 and the goal for the Tomato Fest 5K on August 13th is 27:00 or faster.  Ashley's time was 29:58 and she has a goal for mid-August of 28:00 or faster!!

Goal #5 is another quickie challenge!  A race to lose 30 pounds...first one (author Audrey  or friend LJ) to lose will be host to the other visiting for 3 or 4 days with family.  A feel-good competition.  There really will be no loser!  Unless, of course, you count the one who gets to ride in a car for 9-10 hours with 4 children.  Ha!
