I’m a stay at home mother of two beautiful children, Zoey and Zane. I spend most of my days wiping butts and cleaning up…but what can I say I love every minute of it. I love the time I get to spend each day with my children thanks to God and my wonderful husband. This blog is about our daily happenings at the Blakley Ranch. Hope you enjoy!

Something New...

I need to try something NEW!!! I am making a drastic decision. Ok, it’s not that drastic but for this girl it evokes a small amount of fear. What is it you ask? I’m going to start The Couch-to-5K Running Plan.

It’s a beginner’s running schedule that will have you running 3 miles in just two months. I’m not exactly a coach potato but I’m definitely not a runner. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ran since having my children. After taking a speed walking class in college I was hooked. Speed walking is my friend. I’m comfortable with speed walking…it brings me no anxiety. However, I need a change and I need to get out of my comfort zone. I can’t seem to maintain an exercise program…I think I’m bored. So, here goes nothing…running here I come. Please be kind to me… we have not been friends for awhile. I’m off to clean the house, wash clothes, and set my workout gear out. I want no excuse in the morning! Even though I’m a little anxious I know it will be fun to challenge myself. If you interested in this program check out this link

If you have tried this program or know of any other great workout routines let me know!
