So I'm feeling more empowered today. I woke up at 7 this morning and ran 5 min, walked 20 min. I probably went roughly 3/4 mile. OK well that's not the part I'm feeling empowered about but we'll get to that later. So with the running experience, I got winded about 30 seconds into running and I didn't have much endurance AT ALL!! The good news, I actually got off my butt and out the door this time. Yay me!!! I experienced leg cramps and hip pain the rest of the day. I'm hoping that the endurance comes with time, practice and patience and the hip pain ceases through better diet.

OK on with the empowerment. Ive been putting off the herb course because of the craziness with jobs, moving and planning a wedding. I went from having 3 months to having 3 weeks!!! OK people don't panic yet. So I figured there wasn't enough time to finish so I was going to just give up. I then realised that I'm not going to get anywhere in life constantly doubting myself, procrastinating and making up excuses. I decided it wouldn't hurt anything to at least try to make the deadline. I finished half a packet today and read half the book!! I think I may make it!!

Thanks to any of you who added my blog. I really didn't think anyone would care to read any of the boring stuff I have to say. It really gave me some encouragement and helped me keep pursuing my hopes and someday dreams. Thank you so much!!

Ok sorry everyone. Procrastinating is a huge habit of mine that I really am working on. I was really hoping I would be able to video blog by now but the 2 week new laptop I bought specifically with a web cam built in is perfectly fine BUT the web cam. The stinken thing wont recognize that it's there. Ughhh I seem to have an electrical curse over my head. But thinking positively, I'm practicing gratitude and patience and Best Buy has been really helpful through the whole ordeal.
Ive been meaning to post all my measurements but keep forgetting to buy a measuring tape. ,either that or I just don't want to see what they are,. So Katrina's home work for this week is to buy a measuring tape, get fat % and take pics. My deadline will be to have it all done and posted by tomorrow.
Some exciting news is that happy oasis is coming to Utah and their will be a raw spirit pot luck on Tuesday that Chris and I will be going to. I'm going to make sure to get pics and post the them along with recipes I find. I will also be making some raw pizza this week along with doing video clips on how to make it.
Many blessings to you all until next time!
