Going where I never thought I would go!

This past weekend I walked in an official 5K for Race For the Cure! I can't believe I did that. I never in a million years thought I would do that. You can read more about it on my other blog.

Tonight I ran/walked a mile and a half! Now that is even more surprising to me! I never thought I would be a runner. I just kept saying Philippians 4:13 "
I can do all things through him who strengthens me." and telling myself to put one foot in front of the other. I finished it in 25 minutes! Also, listening to Superchick was a big help! Here is the song that inspired me the most.

Clearly I need help...

I am SO sorry that I have not done real well with keeping this blog up. Between my other blog and the two kids it has been hard to do much typing. And it is really hard to type with only one hand.

However, here is a little run down on what has been going on in my world regarding weight loss.

Three weeks ago I gained 3 pounds, which was very frustrating to me. I feel as though it was due to some health issues I had been having, however I also wasn't doing all that I could to loose weight that week. It is tough for me to keep track of my points everyday for some reason. Back when I was working (when I lost the 60 pounds) it was much easier to track my points. I could say it was because I was in front of a computer all day, but I am in front of my computer all day at home too, so that would just be a lie.

So the week after the 3 pound gain, I lost 2.6! I was pleased with that. I still wasn't doing all I could do as far as tracking goes, but was making smart choices as far as food goes and I was walking 2 miles most days.

This week I lost another 2 pounds, bringing my total weight loss to 8.6 pounds! To top that off I walked 3 miles on Thursday!!!! I never in a million years would ever think that I could walk 3 miles. I tell you what, I am really looking forward to finishing the 5K on Saturday.

So there you have it. I have good weeks and bad weeks, good days and bad days. My encouragement this past week was thinking of Justin. Thinking of my wonderful husband gave me the strength to count my points some days and to walk those 3 miles! I am so blessed to have such an amazing husband. He is a real man of God. He loves God first, wife second, kids third and others fourth!
