About Me

I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

keeping it real

Well this is my once a week report on how I am doing - learning to run and getting in shape. This is my accountability - it is to keep it real, and keep my honest!

Well this is how I fared:

*I made my goal of doing 10 miles walk/jogging

*I did not do Pilate's or yoga even 1 time! Ah!!!

I was having feet pain - horrible pain!! the day after I walk/jogged 2.8 miles I spent the next day with my feet on ice, popping ibuprofen like it was candy and whining. Lots of Whining!! However my neighbor - expert runner - came over and took one look at the shoes and said "scrap those shoes! That is what is causing your feet pain" . So with that in mind I am going to go shoe shopping this weekend. I will probably be looking at a New Balance or Ascics running shoe. Because honestly, it is hard enough to get this body going and keeping on -with out my feet putting me on the sideline the day after I exercise!

New goals for the upcoming week:

*12 miles walk/jog

*yoga and Pilate's at least 2x each (I know I am a sucker for punishment - but I would really like this to be part of my routine!!!)

My next keeping it real post will be next Friday - thanks for indulging me and helping me keep it real!


  1. This little piggy went to market.
    This litte piggy stayed home...
    Poor little piggies who feel ouchy!

  2. Your poor little piggies! I LOVE my Asics shoes! It's the only the I will wear! I love them more than New Balance and that's saying something!!!

    Keep up the good work!!!

  3. I learned years ago that when investing in a bed you want to sink your money in a good mattress...then later you can always spruce up a headboard! Same with excercise! Spend your money on some good shoes first and then the rest will come in time! Soak them feet in some Epson Salt! It really does help! Be blessed. Cindy

  4. If there is a running store close to you go have them fit you for shoes. They will watch how you walk and run and help provide the correct shoes! Also have them show you some good socks! Shoes and socks are KEY!!! Congratulations on an awesome week! I'm sorry your feet hurt :(

  5. I'm not a runner, but I'm so proud of you for getting up and moving!

    I'm having a hard time exercising anywhere because it's just too hot. :(
