>Try this at home:

Place a calendar dedicated to keeping track of your workouts in a prominent location such as your refrigerator.

  • Each day you workout draw a smiley face (or give yourself a sticker) on the calendar.

  • Each day you do not workout draw a big red “X” on the day.

If you see XXX you better get a move on!



Any week you have more smiley faces than X’s reward yourself!

>Yesterday we went to the Reforestation Camp to go cross-country skiing for our xo expedition. I inadvertently earned at least two hearts because I could not read the trail map!! Jack (our 8 year old) and I left the lodge at about 4 PM. I was planning to ski with him for 30-45 minutes. Unfortunately, I was more than a little confused by the map and we ended up on a MUCH longer loop. I couldn’t even call Ryan…no signal on my cell phone! We were out for 90 minutes! I am lucky that Jack is a good skier (not to mention a tough kid) and that the sun sets later these days. Jack earned a whole week’s worth of hearts.

Hope you all have started working on your hearts for this week. Try not to get lost while doing so.

>S= Specific: It’s a 5K! It’s a great distance if you are a beginner or haven’t run in a while. M=Measureable: You CAN finish 3.1 miles even if you have to walk parts of it. A=Attainable: You CAN do it. You have time to get ready for this event, just get started! R=Reward-based: You will get a t-shirt, bragging rights AND the run ends at Seroogy’s, need I say more? T=Time-framed: you need to be ready on February 9th the race director will not post-pone the run so you have more time to train! Here is a link to the Valentine’s day run/walk in De Pere, WI. Here is a link to an easy-to-follow DIY 5K training plan. If you don’t think you can stick to it on your own give us a call and we will help you get ready for this event.

>I started out this week on the right foot:
putting one foot in front of the other. We went snow shoeing today for our xo-expedition at Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve. The short loop (1 1/2 miles) because we had the kids with us.

Snow conditions were a bit slushy, but it was a great day to be outside and enjoy the sunshine. Hope you had a chance to do the same!

Thanks for again for coming along, Anne!
