300 Miles

I gained about 50 pounds when I was pregnant with Ella.  Yeah.  That's what I thought.  8 of it was her, and a lot of it was water weight, and the rest of it came off by nursing.  I'm back to what I was before I got pregnant but I DEFINITELY don't have my body back.  I want to feel comfortable in my own skin again.  Anyway, I think about the way I look too much and it's about time I do something about it.  I've thought about so many different ways I could do it...

-weight watchers
-fitness pal
-starving myself... hahaha me... starving.  I love cookies too much to do this.

Then BAM it hit me.  Exercise.  Exercise?  Me?  Yes.  It's happening people.  The girl with the booty is putting on the tight pants and wogging around a neighborhood near you.    I've always been self conscious about my butt jiggling when I run and I've finally decided that if it bugs anyone they can look away, and try to find someone's who doesn't bounce cause I bet their's does, too!  In other words,  I'm embracing it.  And maybe if I embrace it like Beyonce does hers, it will become famous or something.

So what's the plan, Stan? (Sometimes my friends call me Stan.  Ok, ok, they never do.)

I saw a group of Facebook that had a goal to reach 300 something miles by next year.  This would mean walking, running, swimming at least 1 mile every day (except sunday) until 2014.  Since they started in January and I only know two of them,  I'm going to start by myself and blog about it.  I'm going to post my experiences about my "adventures" here. Down to the old people waving as they drive by or the sketchy guy who hocks (spells) a loogie and throws his arms up at me like, "wanna go?"

So here it is.

{I, Carli Neugebauer, am going to run, walk, jog, wog, bike, rollerblade, or swim 300 miles by January 2014. }

Ugh. Is it just me or did anyone else get a knot in their stomach when they read that? I almost added drive in there but I guess that would be cheating.

Cimaron has encouraged me to use my blog to hold myself accountable before, and I said "but... nobody reads it."  I'll be honest, that is part of the reason why I'm using it.  Another, is that I don't want to post it on Facebook.  I have 10 more friends on there... compared to 2 or 3 readers on here.  I'll take the latter.  So,  blog readers, whoever you are,  this is my goal.  And if I don't do it you can comment on this in a year and say "so car, I see your butt bounces even more now" and I'll be like "yep.... AND my arms have taken on flapping!"

Butt really.  This IS happening.
