Top 2 Tuesday

So I am not an avid meme doer, I always forget when they are, haha. Anyways I decided to participate in this weeks Top 2 Tuesday with The Undomestic Momma, Check her blog out by the way, super cute! So this weeks Top 2 are Tips. So here are mine:

1. Learn to use your Camera: Since I've had the twins I have really put a lot of effort into learning the features on my camera. I think any camera can take a good or even great picture if you know how to use it. Also if you can, get a good photo editing software. If you do it could save you tons because you could take your own pictures and not have to pay someone. Get creative and have fun!

2. Couch to 5K: If you are like me, you have tried workout routines and quickly given up due to them either being to long (and with twins, 30 minutes is too long) or too hard, or just boring. I started the Couch to 5K and am now on my 3rd week. It's literally 25-28 minutes and it takes you from basically doing nothing to being able to run a 5K in 9 weeks. So how do I stay motivated? I told my friends I was doing it and that we should all do a 5K in the fall. They were on board so now I can't disappoint! If you're interested here is the lowdown and here is the music I use. The music is a no brainer, it chimes when you need to change your pace. Easy right? Oh and did I mention it's only 3 days a week? I can't make up excuses for this one. It's just too convenient. Maybe I'll lose the last of that baby weight in the process too!

that sounds like a great plan !!!! Running is such an easy and inexpensive way to get fit...there really is no excuse!

I took a course to learn to use my camera and it has paid me back threefold! Plus I had an evening to myself once a week which was great!!
