And it Begins

Good morning!

I've been thinking about this day for a while now. My first blog post. I decided late one night earlier this year when my husband and I were walking home from watching a Michigan State NCAA tournament basketball game, that I wanted to start a blog. We walked past a restaurant with a huge poster in the window shouting out to passersby about a new XXL extra meat, extra cheese pizza for only $9.99. We make so many choices every day and I've been trying over the past few years to make more good choices than not when it comes to eating, exercise, consumption, and life in general.

I want to share tips, suggestions, events and other interesting things with others as I search for them myself and try to incorporate them into my life. I also plan to use this blog to keep my training in check and on track. Last year I made a commitment to myself that I would run the 2009 ING NYC Marathon and I am on my way to achieving that goal. This Saturday I am scheduled to run 15 miles for the first time.

I welcome suggestions, comments, contributions, and discussions. My hope is that this will become a place for people to learn and share.

Sunday night I started a new journal. I wrote down 5 things I was grateful for that day and I'm going to continue it every night. I know I am lucky and have a lot to be grateful for, but this will help me concentrate on the good things and not dwell on the others. Focus on the positive.

Now its time to finish my breakfast and get to work.

I can't wait to see what you write about! I am trying to be healthy, too, although sometimes I have to go for that XXL pizza. I blame the pregnancy hormones!
