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!!
