Hey guys, I know it has been awhile since my last post and video, but I have been super busy trying to get myself situated. New jobs, starting a business, and making bracelets to sell all while being a mom and a wife has taken up a lot of my time. But please believe that I was thinking about my faithful supporter, because you all matter to me too. You guys help keep me motivated to push my self to be the best I can be, so thank you for your continuous support as I travel on my journey.

So, what is the scoop you may be wondering? How is the training going? And this time around I have to say that it has bee a little challenging just because of the whole new schedule, new jobs, opening a business; so I am all over the place. But I have managed to figure out a workout/training schedule that I am happy with and I do believe once things settled down a little more my workout schedule will improve. I have to admit to you guys that change can be a tough pill to swallow, but it is necessary for growth. The great thing about all of this is that I am not overeating, surprisingly. I have been calm and I have managed to lose 3lbs during all of the change. I am so proud of that 3lbs, because it shows me how mentally mature I am becoming. But please believe that God has everything to do with that. When you read in the bible, that God loves you and He wants to best for you, and that what He did for one He will do for you-you get happy. I mean your spirit gets happy and after you have read the bible and closed it you have strength to make it through, right? But then change comes and your flesh wants to take over, and it may even take over and all of that shouting you did was hauled by the flesh acting out. That was me, and still is somewhat ( I am a work in progress).  But what I have noticed, the more I read His word the more it is embedded in my heart, and when change comes His words come out, not what my flesh wants to say, and that calms me down and my faith continues to work on what I am believing for.

I know that you guys are probable think what does this have to do with weight lost, and my answer is everything. When I am working out or running I will get to a point that I feel like I just can’t go anymore, and I want to stop; and it is at that time that God comes to me and says you can do it Jeanine and I do it-I push through and complete my workout.  Some may think that maybe I should not run in the upcoming 5k, considering my situation, and I would have to say that I can’t give up on something because change comes into my life.  You can’t give up no matter what. I know that the storm is beating down your doors, and flooding your whole world, but as long as you keep looking to God for everything and continue to put one foot in front of the other you will make it to the other side. I tell myself this everyday (Jeanine just focus on today, just like God’s word tells you to do, do not think about tomorrow enjoy today, praise Him for today and you will get to the other side)…

So, I won’t give up, as I am so determine to run in this upcoming 5k. This shows me that I am learning how to embrace change, and trust God for everything. I have said that so many times before, but it did not come from the heart, it was something that I was suppose to say, but this time is so different, because peace comes when I say the words now- I believe it. So, 5k run here I come and I will be sure to update you all on my training progress.
