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.
