WTJ's goals

Today I took my mom to the gym for her first step aerobics class. I know that step can be SO intimidating if you don't know what you're doing, but I went for it. We are going all the way with this! She said she enjoyed it, but wished she were in better shape so she could do all the steps. Well, wish granted! That's going to be number 1 on the goals, here are the rest she wants to accomplish:

1. Get into shape!!
2. Be at least 2 sizes smaller
3. To feel better about herself, like the way she looks and feels
4. Be able to bike 10 miles (I say we can get up to at least 20!)

Longer term goals
1. Be able to dance
2. Not feel embarrassed about herself
3. Be able to bend over and tie her shoe
4. Be able to run
5. Feel comfortable having picture taken

The RuLeS!

I sent my mom a list of the rules, expectations, guidelines, etc... I didn't know how it would go over, but she said she is looking forward to being mothered for a month. I was comparing it more to a prison sentence.. But mothering is probably a better way to think about it.

1. All meals will be prepared by Rachel or Lo for 28 days, this includes snacks, you're unable to eat anything we haven't prepared or approved of
2. Under NO circumstances will there be ANY eating out, UNLESS Rachel or Lo take you and ORDER for you
3. Diet coke may be consumed twice a day, each can will be clearly marked, M, T, W, TR, F, SA, SUN, if you drink all 14 in one day... That's it.. 
4. Exercise shall occur spontaneously throughout the day, but plan on at LEAST 2 hrs each day, except Sundays
5. Computer time will be limited to one hour, broken into 2 half hour segments, each day. This will include checking emails, facebook, or watching TV. Additionally time may be allotted if there is a planned movie. 
6. 1-3 hrs each day (excluding Sundays) will be spent on cleaning out the house/sheds. This includes, but is not limited to, organizing photos, taking things to goodwill, organizing clutter, and general cleaning
7. NO one is ALLOWED to bring you food!! No friends, no family, no neighbors, NO ONE. Unless prior approval is given by Rachel or Lo
8. Early to bed, early to rise. There will be no staying up all night and sleeping in all day. Bed time is 10 pm, breakfast will be at 7 am or earlier. 
9. Everyone is expected to help clean up all meal messes
