Week 2

Thankfully, week 2 has also been successful. I am really enjoying running right now. The weather was great for running Friday and Saturday, then it turned cold. Yesterday was the coldest weather I have run in yet. It was 30 out when I was running. It's much better than running in the heat though. I ran 2.03 miles in 30.52. Since I am only on week 2 of the C25K, I am still walking the majority of the time. This makes me hopeful that I will be able to run a 5k by the end of the program.

I'm down 2.2 pounds this week. I'm only 10 pounds away from my lowest last year. Pretty exciting stuff. We ate out a lot this week and I was still able to stay within my points. I am very thankful for that.

We went to see Silver Linings Playbook this weekend. It was great! I don't think Lucas enjoyed it as much as I did, but it was a more realistic romantic comedy than most. Afterwards we went to Macaroni Grill.

I have really been wanting to get my paint kit back out. I think that will be my project this weekend. It's something that I enjoy, but I don't ever take the time to do it. Hold me to it and I will post a picture of it afterwards.

Last week was the most stressful week at work ever. I was exhausted by the weekend. Definitely thinking about the future and what I need to do and what God wants me to do.

Dad gave a very inspiring sermon Sunday that can be applied to every aspect of our lives. Christ should always come first. We all have barriers that we need to tear down. Apathy is a big one. This is one of the reasons I haven't tried to change before. I just didn't care anymore. I was oblivious to the way I was. It IS possible to change. No matter what needs to be changed, it is possible to do it. With the right motivation and  determination, change will happen.

Let me reiterate: Change WILL Happen!


  1. Good blog this week. Proud of what you are accomplishing. Wish I heard the sermon on Sunday but was too sick. I am doing my exercises a little bit at a time. Keep up the good work. Hope to be taking pictures of you this year in the Louisville Color Run. God bless.

  2. Judi,

    I don't know if you have been able to read anymore since this post, but I did sign up for the Color Run! I'm really looking forward to it. I'm sorry that you have been so sick recently. We've missed seeing you at church. I am going to try to put sermon notes up every week on the church's Facebook page so people who aren't able to come can see what the sermons are about.

    Hope you are feeling better soon.
