Things a happenin'

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I'm trying to get back into blogging but its been hard to start the habit again. I've been slowly changing things and I finally am starting to feel like things are a-happenin' for me :-).

Today I have a second interview for a new position with my company. Its going to be a lot more responsibility and will have a lot more room to grow than where I am at now. I'm really excited because I think I have the job and its going to be so nice to learn new things and feel less like an admin assistant!

I think I mentioned before that I was going to start training for a 5k with a friend at work. Since we got some snow for a couple of weeks we have had a slow start but we are now in the second week of the Couch to 5k app. My legs feel like they are always sore in different places but it feels good to know that I'm doing something good for me and my body. My eating hasn't been so good lately but the training has definitely helped. I think I've lost another 2lbs but I'm trying not to weigh myself too much right now so I quit obsessing about the number. I just want to be able to get down 2 more pants size (to make myself an 8) and I will be happy. Really, I'll be happy to be a 10 and I'm almost there but I've only been able to fit into an 8 once in my life and I would like to have that feeling again.

So things are changing in the health department and the career department and I'm still working on the personal life/emotional health department. I've been going to a class at church about Joseph and I learn something new each class. Also, there is something said each time that has really hit me because it fits where I'm at in life. Learning how Joseph dealt with all the bad things he went through and yet he still trusted in God and knew He had a plan for his life is inspirational to me. I don't know why it is so hard to trust that God knows where He wants me in life and how I'm going to get there. I really need to learn to trust Him with everything, not just what I should do for my career (that is really easy for me for some reason but nothing else is). So for now, I'm clinging to the promises God has made me for my life and reminding myself what it says in Jeremiah 29:11.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I hope everyone has a blessed day!

    What a wonderful Blog. At church this week end this is what was taught. The other thing our pastor talked about was how God's roadmap for us is not necessarily in the direction we were expecting to go and what we need to do to listen to that plan...It's so great to read another one of your blogs and to know you are well! Keep up the great work. Good luck on the 5K! Wishing you many blessings.
