Weights intimidate me.
Cycling is fun.
Stair climber is painful, but in a good way.
Walking is great, but takes too long for me to get from point A to point B.
Core exercises are okay; I fill like I do them wrong and since I am not consistent I do not get the results I want.
Running is my IT exercise…I freaking love it. I do not want to run a half marathon or marathon. I do want to strengthen my core and work my entire body to help me build endurance.
I want to tone.
I want to feel comfortable in my clothes; I’m comfortable in my skin:)
My daughter will be 10 this year; I can’t believe it. I see a bit of myself in her. I admire her confidence and the ability to speak her mind. Her determination to be different and defy the odds-it frightens and amazes me. I pray that she will see the person she will become, and know that there will be a few bumps in the road, but don’t allow those bumps or people stop her from being who she is meant to be.
When I was her age, I wasn’t confident. I did not speak up or challenge the status quo and I was down on myself. I thought I was the ugliest person on the plant. I had aspirations of going to college to get a degree in communications, but I allowed someone to tell me no, that I couldn’t do it and that I wasn’t ready for college. I wish the younger version of myself could have had a glimpse of the woman she would become. She would have been proud to know that the bumps wouldn’t stop her from being who she was meant to be.
1. Waking up
2. Food to eat
3. Watching my daughter create short stories about her life and animals; she has inspired me to start writing again.
4. Having a husband that loves me unconditionally-flaws, bad attitude, diabetes and all.
Every week, I receive a new scripture or a devotion that relates to the topic that I am studying. The Bible verses are great, but every once in a while they do not relate to the class. My new instructor sent a syllabus, which included Jeremiah 29:11 happens to be one of those scriptures that spoke to me in ways that no one could understand. I have made a decision to stop worrying about my career; He has a plan for me. I am done blocking my blessings. I am letting go and letting God. What He has for me-it is for me.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you.” declares the Lord,”plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
