Wow! Long time no blog!

So, I'm baaaaaack!
I was just gonna forget about the blog thing then I realized how much other peoples blogs help me. So I kinda want to pay it forward even if it is just to give you someone to laugh at. Well, I had to stop trying to run for a while due to a foot issue. I got very discouraged and stopped eating healthy. Stopped exercising all together. Felt worthless pretty much. But God! Yes, But God! He never lets me down! He gave me drive again. I decided with a little push from the big guy upstairs, I am not going back to that depressed lifeless women! After gaining 20 lbs back I cut the gaining trend off! That's whats important. Its not your screw ups, its about what you do to change your screw ups. God loves you no matter what. Ask for forgiveness and let his power stir within you. Manifest in you. Bring life back to you. I was a little bold and contacted a wonderful women on facebook who I only really am acquainted to but don't really know all that well. She has lost so far a little over 100 pounds I believe, so I thought I would see if she would kinda be my weight loss buddy. She has been great! I am now back to eating healthy. Exercising. Drinking lots of water. And am down 9 lbs! Yay! My goal is 150. I am now 186. So 36 pounds to go! Your probably wondering. What about your heal? Yes, I do still have some trouble with it. So I just do what I can do and it seems to be getting a little better all the time. My step-father brought over an exercise bike so that helps alot. Also I found that I love doing Zumba! I'm really not good at it at all but ,hey, its fun! I just do it at home by the way. So, I will be updating my weight loss every week. Either Sundays or Mondays. "God is soooooooo good! His word is true! And it works in my life!" -Pastor Lowe- My Pastor says this all the time. Love it!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life

Hey all! Really excited about the day ahead of us. I getting ready to wake up the kiddos for church. I looooove our church. Tonight we have revival! Yeah! We missed it last night. Then I heard our Pastor was on fire! So I definitely don't want to miss it tonight.So I failed to tell you about my family yesterday. My husband and I will have been married for 8 years in October. We have six children, 3 of them he had before we got married, and I had 1 before, then we had two together. Confused yet? Well, don't be I love them all same. I claim every one of our wonderful children. My 3 step-children live with their mothers, and the other 3 live with us. Did I say their all wonderful!!!  Things haven't always been easy but I pray for those things to turn around. My children's ages are: 19, 18, 16, 12, 7, and 4. So, ye I'm a busy mommy. So that's a little snipit' of my family. I'll be telling more I'm sure down the road. So, about running, I went on my second run yesterday between the rain. It was fantastic. My hips got a pretty sore last night but feel great this morning. Thank you Jesus! My weight was a little up this morning but I ate a little more then I should have yesterday. But today is a new day with God so help me Jesus! I definitely can't do it without you Lord. Gotta get the kids up now that I spent way to much time on this...Have a fantabulous day!

So, this is my very first blog post! how exciting! I want to thank you for stoppin' by to see what I've got in store for this blog. Bare with me it might take a while to get the hang of this. I love to read blogs. They can be so inspiring! Now, about my blog, ahhhhh, I am so excited, to say MY BLOG.. anyways...My blog will be about an array of things.  Recently, I have acquired a love for health and fitness.  In January I started to exercise and eat healthy. Although I have hit many road blocks through the months, one of them being my own lack of will power,   I have still managed to lose about 43 pounds! Exciting huh! I can not take all the credit for this though. The difference for me this time has been that I have decided not to go at it alone..This time I chose to do it with God. Everyday is a journey with God and he is their to help us no matter what we are taking on. Just call on him and you shall receive.. Anything good that is.. So I have decided to take on an even bigger challenge, RUNNING, yes running. Trust me, for me, this is a huge challenge. I am still about 26 pounds overweight, so this makes it even harder. I did my first run on Tuesday,it was 10 min. of walking, then 17 min. of running, then cooled down with another 14 min. of walking. I went a little longer then I was supposed to for the program I'm doing. It felt good while I was running but omg I was hurtin' that night. Well, my little guy is cryin' so I need to go see whats wrong. Have a blessed day!
