I'm a woman trying to become healthier.

Trying is the key word. And notice I didn't say, "trying to lose weight" or "trying to count calories". I've done those things before, and I just get frustrated at the lack of results, and quit. 

I've joined some of my friends in a support campaign to start working out more often, start eating healthier, and to keep each other going in our individual goals. We share low-fat, low-calorie recipes, we've posted foods we have found that taste great and are healthy alternatives to our normal foods, we share music play lists that get our hearts pumping, and overall encourage each other to get out and get moving.

So far, I am doing fairly well....I had 11 workouts last month (which is HUGE for me) and have vowed to workout 17 times this month (4 of those workouts are going to be a local Zumba class) and I have tried to have some kind of healthy meal at least once a day (Chick-fil-A salads are so yummy). So to keep myself accountable (not sure I like that word, but whatever) I am also going to put a new section over there on the right side of my blog that lists what I have done that day to make myself healthier. And I will periodically share some of the fun recipes and foods my friends and I have found , just in case you've made some of the same goals we have.

 If you've got any great tips, or suggestions of things that have worked for you feel free to share them in the comments. 'Cuz I'm not to proud to ask for comments.

Good job Anjie! I do pretty good with the eating healthy part but the exercise part is where I have my downfall. Once spring decides to actually stick around I am hoping that will change. Keep up the good work!
