Quite Possibly the BEST DAY EVER!!!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

First and foremost, this is a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the wonderful Done Girls who have wished me continued success and who support me endlessly every day! Being Done Girl of the Day is an absolute honour and one of which I am very proud!

It wasn't an easy start to the day, but I successfully finished W1D3 of C25K! There will absolutely be a W1D10 at this point, but hey - I made it to 3 and that's what's important right now. It really was too humid to run this morning - almost 100% humidity at 7:30am. Holy crap Batman. My face was so red when I came inside to the air conditioning I thought I looked like an overgrown cherry tomato. But I survived and was then gifted with an amazing show of support from all of my wonderful friends.

Today I am also saying GOODBYE to one of my 2 student loans. I have officially paid off a $10,000 loan and I am SO EXCITED about that. That in and of itself feels like a 100 pound weight has been lifted. Only one more to go and I will have complete financial freedom! Something I have never felt since leaving home.

This looks like it's going to be my year. I have made so many personal advancements in my health, my wealth and my spirit. Look at me go! I really feel like the sky is the limit at this point. I have goals and ambitions and positivity in my life. And though things aren't perfect all the time, I don't feel as though the struggles are as bad as they were before I found Spark and started making all these life changes. When I think of what my life will look like a year from today I get excited. There are so many wonderful things in store and I can wait to experience each and every one of them - losing 100 pounds, paying off the second loan, starting to save for a house and a car, advancing in my career, shopping in regular sizes, running my first 5K, maybe 10K?...the list goes on and on.

Thank you - ALL of you, who are following me, cheering me on, supporting me and making this journey fun and enjoyable!

But I also want to thank ME for believing in myself. It's not easy to do sometimes, but when I look over my shoulder at the road behind me, it makes all of this SO worth it!

    Congrats on paying down that student loan! We're still in the "piling it up" stage instead of paying it down :( Hubby graduates with his master's this month though, so it'll start heading in the other direction!

    Three Cheers for the Best Day Ever!!
    It really must feel amazing to have that loan paid off. Congrats!
    Starting and sticking with the C25K program is also worth a cheer. I started week 7 yesterday, an amazing feeling!
    You got this girl ... what an amazing year you've had thus far - I can't wait to hear about what happens down the line.

    I wish mine could help me with a mortgage down here (in the USA) - unfortunately, all of my student loans are in Canada which does NOTHING for my American credit regardless of how fast I pay them off. I plan on getting bank letters from my Canadian bank to prove my credit, but I'm not sure what the US lenders are going to do with them. Kind of a bummer since this would definitely favour my credit report!

    congrats in the c25k and the loan. I loved it when I payed several off but I am keeping some as it helps with getting a mortgage.
