Get up off the couch!

Yes! I am talking to you (and, um, myself)!

Check out this site, and you too could be a future marathon runner! It's a very concrete and easy to use *free* plan, to get you up off the couch and running 5k in ten weeks. By mid-March you could be running for real.

I plan to blog about some beginning running plans in the next couple of days too....I will check out this link. In my most recent issue of Women's Running magazine, there was a very doable beginning running plan.
I guess since you are pregnant, you will just stick with the walking....
Let us know how the glass jars go. I am down to just 2 sippy cups for my 2 youngest who are too old for sippy cups, but they drink milk in them every morning in my bed--I don't want spills in there! However, they drink out of open plastic cups all day. So do my other 3 children too.
We may switch to glass too, after I hear how it goes at your house. Since I write their names on the plastic cups, I guess I would have to use markers like you do.
Have a great New Year's Day!

this looks like something, even I could do. I think I will give it a try. Thank you, Jennifer for sharing this.

Hey Jennifer~ Kevin and I did this last summer!! It was awesome and I shocked myself that I could actually RUN at the end of it! It helped me lose 60 lbs too. But once it got too cold we took a break. Can't wait for warmer weather and we can go running again. Still have another 20 lbs to get off anyway!
