52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Hi! My name is Amy and I want to run again!

Well, I have more goals than just that. But I am trying to focus on that one currently. When I first moved to Arizona I got into running. I ran 2 half marathons. I loved it. Except I hadn't dropped all my weight and I hurt myself. Well through those last few years I have tried to pick it up again and had no ambition to really do it. Then I decided to sign the family up for gym membership to help us all be in better shape, and help me loose a bunch of weight.
I was in the grocery store and found this little magazine. It has a great walking plan work out. And it also has a great 8 week plan to get you running again! I am working on the first week and love it! My brother and I want to do a half marathoon this year, and now I think I can actually do it! I am so excited.
Here is a list of several things I want to work on this year.
1- As stated above, run a half marathon.
2- Watch my food intake and stay within certain calorie and fat grams.
3-Consistantly go to the gym 5-6 times a week.
4-Loose 50-60 lbs, (Depending on how things look when I get there)
I am so excited with this blog I think it will be helpful for everyone!!!
Good Luck Everyone!!!


  1. Yay! I am so glad you are here! I have always wanted to be a runner but don't know if I actually will ever be one. Let us know what the 8 week running plan entails. I would be very interested.

  2. Congrats Amy!I don't think I can ever be a runner (even when I was thin, I was an awfully slow runner). Let us know how the 8 week plan works...maybe someday I might even get brave and run a 5K (might be fun to do as a group).
