The Healthy Wage Dream Team Challenge has me STOKED.  Here`s how I`m feeling about it overall:

But I`ve also been feeling a lot like this lately.

I'm trying my hand (or I suppose legs) at running.  I really want to do well on this challenge, so any extra exercise I can do is great.  I've woken up early the last 2 days, and instead of wasting time on the computer while I grumble in my coffee cup, I've laced up my shoes and headed out at 6:00 AM to run around the block.  It's only half a mile, and I end up walking half of that, but it's a start.  Once I conquer this block, I'll add another, and maybe even another after that!  

Overwhelmed is another feeling that is coming up a lot in life.  Not just with fitness and weight loss, but parenting and work.  So I'm going to try this approach:

So how are you feeling today?

Meet the Dream Team! Come on over to Facebook to follow our progress and give us some encouragement!


  1. Andy, I cannot wait to see what you accomplish these next three months. Dream Big, baby!!!

  2. You can do it! I am so happy for you. Being on the Dream Team is gonna be so great for you! Yay for giving running a try....don't forget it doesn't matter how short or long the distance, how fast or how slow - what matters is you are doing it!!

  3. Congratulations on being picked! I can't wait to see what you all accomplish together. Way to go on trying running. I know it can be intimidating, but you have a good idea on starting slow and adding to it. I liked using a C25k running program.
