Loyal readers will know that the whole reason I started this blog, back in good old 2007, was to provide myself with accountability and motivation to dig myself out of a rut. Well, I am not in a rut this time around, but I do find myself ready, again, for the same sort of accountability and motivation as I get back on the fitness bandwagon.
So let me hereby publically state a few goals.
GOAL #1: At least three big dogwalks a week.
To this end, behold the new Chariot: that which enables me to get out of the house with both girls and both dogs and go wherever I want to:
GOAL #2: Start running again.
I can't run with Madelyn in the jogger until she is at least 3 months old, so I'll be getting a babysitter twice a week (and the Gutsy Dad once a week) to watch Madelyn while Jillson naps and I run. This begins on Saturday!
GOAL #3: Strength training twice a week.
Bring it on, Jari! Where's the pump??? RIGHT HERE!
GOAL #4: Committing to self-care.
This can mean any number of things, but for starters, check out my new haircut! I did it myself (long story, sort of) on inauguration day.Speaking of the inauguration, I took these pictures of the girls so that I'll be able to show them where they were when history was made in our country.And these are my inaugural donuts:Finally, the latest installment of "I made this," celebrating Jillsie at 8 months old.
