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!
