I could use all the support I can get. I really want this time to stick, but I'm having a hard time with consistency.

Help!

2014
L.A.Big5K - March 8 - 52:41 **same hills as last year, this was a weird one. Although it is the slowest race I've done since I started running, it's also the one where I've run for longer distances without walking. Go figure! I'm still processing my execution. Once I'm done processing, I'll delete this note and post a blog or vlog.

I am no longer looking into the future... I'm living the NOW!! Tomorrow's not a promise, but today is completely full of possibilities. I'm willing to work hard and put into this journey what I'm hoping to get out of it. I'm gonna work my butt off, eat healthy, work on my positive mentality, and do my best to achieve great results. I read this in someone's blog and she's sooo right: this isn't a race, it's a journey. I'm working at being healthy, but also on having one heck of a journey!!

I stole this prayer from a DONE sister's SparkPage... I hope she doesnt mind, but I thought it was fitting to me as well:

Dear God,
I surrender my body & my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess & unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy & balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health & life energy. And, finally, teach me to love my body & to care for it from this day forth. AMEN

Be strong & courageous. Do not be discouraged; do not be terrified, for the Lord, my God, will be with me wherever I go.

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy and fit so my husband and I can live a long, healthy life and explore the world through travel. We've been bitten by the travel bug.



My Program:
Plan and prep healthy, low-carb meals and snacks.

Drink plenty of water and have it available at all times.

Zumba classes

Train for 5K charity races

I am putting my life in the hands of God and letting Him use me and move me however He needs me. But in order for me to be ready to take on any task He sets for me, I must be healthy and active enough to do Him proud. He's my motivation.
