I am striving for a chance to become more like the Proverbs 31 wife and mother, most of the time I fall short, but there are moments with God's grace that I succeed!

I jogged a mile... and didn't die.
I suppose it's obvious my blogging days came to a skreeching hault after I posted a start to get healthy deal. I won't offer any excuses, I just lost interest in it for a while. I am back now, and excited to meal plan and share with you some very exciting news! I participated in the Women Can Run 5k walk/run clinic and this past weekend actually gave myself the Mother's day gift of driving to Conway with my little family and staying the night. During the clinic the longest I jogged was for 7 minutes and I thought I was really pushing myself in that, but I was wrong. I was able to jog for 13 minutes during the 5k, the entire 1st mile, I finished the 2nd mile by 27 minutes and the entire race in 40 minutes, 14 seconds! It was very exciting and I was thrilled the rest of the day. Here is a picture of me and my good friend Amanda (who ran it in 26 minutes) running me in and encouraging me to go as fast as I was physically able.
