{get healthy}

My friend and fellow scrapper Megan Klauer has recently ventured into the world of printables! I was happy to work with one of her new releases to document my journey to fitness this year :) You can visit her Etsy shop here!

I also used some flair from A Flair for Buttons on this page. Be sure you check out the shop because Shelley has just added a TON of new flair, a lot that coordinates with the new Project life kits. It is seriously awesome stuff!!!

This year I have really made a commitment to being healthier. Now that I am done having kids I don't have an excuse anymore. I am tired of that 10 pounds creeping on every year.....I just can't keep doing that to myself.  One of the things that has helped me immensely is that Adam is making that same commitment, so we aren't enabling each other. I have been tracking my calories with My Fitness Pal and using the elliptical for 30 minutes a day. Last night I even did 45 minutes! I was shocked at how easy it was after just 3 weeks of doing this.

I have also committed to run a 5K in June. I think I can be ready in 4 months. I am surprised at how much I love exercising. Shocking for a person who said the only reason they would run is if someone were chasing them :)
