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!
