Just breathe....and believe

Hi friends,

   Sure has been awhile since I have made a post. I don't have a solid excuse why I have not sat down to update my blog. Plenty has been going on to talk about.

Currently, I am wrapping up training for my 2nd marathon that is on December 9th! Woo hoo. I am nervous but I am just praying for NO rain!

I am excited that I have amazing friends to share this with!

 My buddy Victor is coming to visit me the week before to do our last long run together since we haven't been able to run this entire season.
I am also excited to be running with my dear gal, Ashley D, she is amazing! I am not sure I would have signed up without her push.

The sun is currently flowing through my office window and I am listening to the Lumineers.( if you aren't familiar with them or this album-I suggest you give it a listen) I feel like I am blessed. Just so blessed.

Why you ask? Life, love and health. Every day I am given a new day. A new palate. A day to create something new. To accomplish a new goal or form a new dream. That is a gift. As they say, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. And I have to agree...I am a dreamer and a thinker.

My daughter brings so much love to my life. She fills my heart with so much JOY. Here she is today just being herself.  (another reason I feel SO incredibly blessed)


New topic now is I am on to a new venture. I am now involved with the company Visalus. I am drinking the shakes that are amazing. I have tried several different protein shakes. Especially because I like the idea of a quick, healthy meal that sustains. I have to say, I have never had this much sleep and energy. I am on day 5 of a 90 day challenge and I feel incredible.

I know there are several mixed reviews as there are on ANY company especially when people these days are so skeptical on companies making claims on health. But you just have to try and go with what you like. I am an adult and can make decisions for myself.
I know it works. I know I feel good. I know I am sleeping like a log. This makes me love this product and I wish more people would join me on my 90 day challenge or create one for themselves.

Another project or should I say dream/goal coming to life is me becoming a personal trainer. Classes are to begin this week! I could not be more pleased! I can't wait to have this accomplished.

I love life. To love life is to love yourself and want a happy and healthy life. That starts from the inside. You must want to be here. Eating burgers and sitting on the couch isn't going to do that. I want to be free of disease and sickness. And I want to share the wealth of knowledge to others and encourage others.

AND I am going back to work. After a little over 2 years home with my AMAZING angel girl, I am putting my skills back in use.

I feel like I am leaving 2012 with a bang! And I could not be more pleased!!!

My final message today is to love everyone. My cousin (Michelle) posted this on Facebook today. I want to share it because I feel the same. Let's move forward after this election and STOP the negative talk.

I love you if you're a liberal or a conservative, if you're black or white, if you're gay or straight, if you had an abortion or have not, if you're rich or poor, if you're an atheist or believer...If you are human, I love you.

I wish you all a WONDERFUL day!
