week 2

jog blog 09
I have to admit - I didn't have a very productive week of working out and jogging.  I could list out all my excuses, but I won't waste your time.  I ran twice this week, so I fell short of my goal.  Tomorrow is a new day and I will make sure I do better next week!  We will still all have 3 more weeks to meet our monthly goals... How did you all do?  Any new successes?  Anyone discover a new workout routine that really works for their schedule?

I hope you have a great weekend! :)


  1. No, I am running around but not running:( I have a nieghbor now thats going to run with me every morning. Yeah for motivaters!!!

  2. Oh I suck this week! I didn't find the time to jog even once... but I have a set of "dance" workout dvds that i did 4 days this week and LOVE and I've FELT like I was making awesome progress...BUT sadly I've managed to GAIN 5 more pounds...and don't tell me it's muscle lol cuz I do NOT see 5 lbs worth of muscle anywhere! Hahaha my 4 yr old son was patting me on the back and said "your back feels hard mom" so i was like yay! hopefully lost some backfat! ...then he said "but your butt is still big and wiggly" ...bummer!

    Hope everyone else made better progress!


  3. I did horrible this week! :( I worked out one day...pitiful. Things were just too crazy this week. Somehow I have lost 2 pounds and I'm sure that's from having no time to eat!

  4. I started running for a stress reliever while taking care of my mom who was diagnosed with cancer on August 1st. I started out on a treadmill which was horredously boring, so when I knew I could leave her for 30 or 45 minutes, I hit the streets. Now that she is living with my husband and I, I kept up my vigilant routine of running daily. I usually run 4 miles a day sometimes more. Depends on whether I can get into a comfortable stride. lol Sometimes it's a struggle to go but I know once I put my shoes on and head out I will feel better in the end. So, I am proud to say I have logged in 20 miles so far this week. That's if you count from Monday.

    I've been a lurker for some time now and figured I would come out of the woodwork. I continue to keep you guys in my prayers!

  5. Well this week I didnt get much done other than we swam ALOT!!!!! My new treadmill is coming tomorrow and then it begins!!! Im hoping to get up every morning around 6 and do 30 mins on the treadmill and some exercises on Wii fit!

  6. I had a great time getting caught up on your blog, Lauren. Good luck with your exercise goals, it's awesome that you are motivating people. You're such and awesome person!!

  7. I have been soooo bad Lauren! I'm away next week on holiday and after that I'm getting into SERIOUS training for a 12km run mid August and I'm counting on you to get me through! Thanks for this idea xxxx

  8. I've done good. Down 5 pounds :)

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
