And so the training begins...

Stepped on the scale this morning and lost another 2 pounds!  I was a bit nervous, since I ate way more cooked foods that I would have liked this past week.  I chose only healthy, whole grains like brown rice and whole wheat bread, but I found myself craving those carbs this week and it was making me a little nervous.  I'm learning to find a good balance in my diet.  Trying not to be afraid of food even if it is healthy and good for my body. 

So August 1st marked 2 months since I began this journey to wholeness.  33 pounds gone and I am amazed at the energy level I now have, as well as the increased endurance I now posses!  On Sunday, July 31, I began training for my very first 5k.  I am doing the 'couch to 5k' training program, and I will admit that I was very surprised that I was able to complete the first 2 days of the training schedule!  The 5k is scheduled for October 15, so with God by my side and consistent training over the next two months, I believe I can do this!  I know it's going to be very hard work, but I am up for the challenge and excited to meet this goal!

I am so thankful for your prayers and encouragement!  Please continue to pray for me as I tread down this path, holding the hand of my Savior, taking on new challenges and gaining new strength in Him.  I thank God for all He continues to do in my life.
