I just finished my 5-week training schedule for the 5K walk/jog program. I did 3.12 miles in 37.5 minutes! If me, at one year ago, looked at the me today, I would not believe it. I feel so good that I've not only commited to 10-minutes-a-day of exercise, but taken it further than I ever would have believed. I think I'm now hooked on exercise.
I had a day off yesterday while Big E had school and I took little G to daycare, so I went and had my first ever manicure and pedicure. It was a gift from my Hubby YEARS ago, but I just never got around to doing it. I enjoyed the hands, but LOVED the feet! I could see me going back periodically for those! While I was enjoying the pampering, I was telling Kristen about my new-found love. She was very impressed and even though she was a stranger, it made me feel so good. I would like to eventually be known as someone who is very healthy; not just with food, but with activity too. I recently went to a health fair for work where I got BP and cholesterol checked; both were wonderful...yeah! If I can get my BMI down then I'll be cookin'!
I am very blessed in my life. Sure I have worries, sure I could use more money, more time, less stress, etc., but I am still so VERY blessed in so many ways. I want to be here and healthy for my girls, my hubby, my family, my friends and myself for as long as possible. God gave me this gift of life and I would like to make it the fullest I can.
God Bless Everyone!
