okay hi guys!!! FIRST OFF congrats to Stephanie for reaching onederland!!!! YAY!!
so the scale is not my friend lately......BUT I have been doing loads of outdoor activities this summer and will definitely be completing my 2013 physical goals by summer end!!! YAY. Not only have I been checking off that list, I have also been getting more socially involved, which is HUGE for me. I am going to Africa in November on a mission trip, which in itself is amazing! I have never done anything like this or even knew how to go about it, but I have ALWAYS WANTED to do this.
So this trip has brought about alot of other activities which I wouldn't normally do because of social anxiety and just plain fear and also laziness. But I did a week of helping with vacation bible school at my church, and just did some fundraising for our trip at a big community bbq AND even face painted which Ryan and I were roped into and had severe stomach cramps dreading it! BUT we ended up being awesome! We did great with the kids and I want to do it again next year!!!!!
I really want to shed some more weight before my trip, and I'm trying to get there, my addiction to food is at its worst. This is all a mind thing for me, I know I can lose the weight Ive done it before, I know my body can do really tough stuff if I just do it. So I really am going to be looking into the mental side of things, and how to change THAT. Because that is the problem. But anywho this is just an update, mostly caused by Stephanie's blog! I did better when I just stayed in touch and blogged and got on spark everyday, and made it a routine. So thats what I'm also going to try and keep up the rest of this month!
