I love it when a plan comes together!

Since everyone else is doing it, I think I should also. Here is my plan:

My exercise plan:
1) Run at least one half-marathon and one 10K in the spring
2) Weight train 2x/week
3) Increase the number of days that I run to 5x/week
4) Be more consistent about Saturday yoga

My food plan:
1) Desserts only on weekends
2) One mid-afternoon latte during the week as a treat
3) Have a fruit or veggie with every meal
4) Drink water (or herbal tea) more consistently
5) Find some great tasting recipes for vegetables

Drinking pop isn't a problem for me-I don't like pop. And my husband has been great for helping me with my #5 food plan. He grew up in a family that raised vegetables and knew how to cook them. Since he's moved here, I've been introduced to artichokes, brussel sprouts, avocado, fennel, and squash. And I've liked them all!

Sweet, LJS - concrete goals! I'm with ya on the #s 4 and 5 on the food plan. Bought one ofthose gigantic tubs of salad mix and am trying to bulk up my plate with them before adding anything else. Makes for a lot of chewing at mealtimes, but hey - fiber is good, right?

I like the yoga with fruit on the bottom.

Awesome plan. I'm looking into some variety in my veggies too.
