I know I haven't posted in a long while, but hey I'm just going to start from life now and catch up here and there.
I've been enjoying the quiet time I have here in the mornings, since my roommates leave for school before I do. I enjoy sitting on the floor letting the light flood through the windows while I sit and immerse myself in the Word. Unfortunately, these mornings will be short lived as our house will be going through a face lift the next few weeks. Construction starts at 8 a.m. tomorrow. I'll have to take some before pictures, we're getting a new bathroom and I'm so excited!
I really wanted to keep a blog over my challenge of getting in shape again and losing some weight, but I didn't get to start from the beginning, but I can now. I've been training for a half marathon and so far its been great. I've lost 7 pounds in the past three weeks and look forward to keep on pushing myself. I've pretty much given up sweets and try to stick to fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I've also made it to 8 miles on my running! I honestly didn't think I could do it, but I'm proving myself wrong. I bike everywhere and it is super nice. I've saved a lot of gas money and am building up some nice quads on my uphill bike ride. I feel like I'm finally starting to live the way I've been wanting to. Daily exercise routine, eating healthy, cooking for myself, etc. I'm starting to feel a lot better about my self and my self confidence is improving. All I desire now is for my best friend and lover to be by my side through it all. I have engagement pictures in 4 weeks and my half marathon in 5 weeks. I've still got some work to do.
Eight months from today I'll be Mrs. Kendall Johnson. Tomorrow will be Wedding Wednesday, I'll be posting some pictures of inspiration on the blog tomorrow and Thursday will be N. Africa Memories.
