Well, here it is....

I've been thinking.... and have also been encouraged by a few friends who have done the same... to start a blog about my work out process..... As some have said, putting it out there for the world to possibly view is, in some way, accountability! Not to mention, more often than not, there will probably be more encouragement through this as well!.... So, here it is.... my work out blog!... I have yet to decide if I'm going to publicize my actual weight--even though I'm calling this "weighing in." I know, shoulda thought about that, right?!... Oh well, we'll just see how it goes....

First of all, I'm not promising ANYTHING from this blog!!! Some days I really have a desire to share my experience with working out and retraining my body! I've been working SO hard, and I really just want others to be encouraged as well... I suppose, I'm looking for some kind of community through all of this... There are plenty of people out there working hard and in the same place I am--so, I think we can encourage one another and learn from each other!

Secondly, there are two people I need to thank right off the bat!!!.... First of all, my husband-Shane, for being SO supportive and encouraging!! He gets up w/ the kiddos every morning--even when it's SO early--so that I can go to the Y and work out! I love you more than words can say... And secondly, my sweet sister-in-law Alexis... you are amazing!!! She is my personal trainer right now, and I feel abundantly blessed to have such a good friend and someone who encourages me and challenges me in MORE ways than just working out! Love you, sis!:)

Well, I'm not going to advertise this blog... at least, I don't think I am... I figure I'll mention it to a few, and then just see who happens upon it... Again, I'm not promising much, but we'll see how it goes... I figure I might even use this blog for other things besides just "getting fit" kinds of things!... So, could be interesting... I don't claim to be a writer... but I do like to share my thoughts sometimes....

Thanks for visiting and there will be more to come!.... (I know at least that much!:)

Wow Sara! This is such a great idea! It's like watching The biggest Loser! (although you are definitely NOT a candidate to be on that show!) I just think this will encourage others and motivate us as well! I'm proud of you and your determination...it will be fun to 'watch' your progression towards a very healthy lifestyle! You GO GIRL! I'm your biggest fan! Love you!
