Last Thursday I asked if anyone had any pointers and I received this sweet email from Jennifer over at

Here's what she had to say!

I saw your post this morning and thought I would write my tip. I recently met up with a friend of mine who is a personal trainer that helped put me on the right track with exercise through running. I keep calendar that I printed off the computer and track my progress throughout the week. Knowing she is going to get that calendar and see what I've done motivates me to make sure I do something every day. Also, I add up the times I ran and the miles I ran at the end of the week and the pounds I have lost. If I set a good goal number for the beginning of the week I find I work really hard to achieve it. I started three weeks ago only able to run 2 minutes and walk 4 minutes in intervals. Now I'm running 1/2 mile to 1 mile with 1/4 mile walks in between. Doing this exercise curbs my diet in that I want to eat healthier so I can run further.

Hope that helps!
