This far....

I have been thinking a lot about our future. Our goals as a family, spiritually, financially, and my own goals physically. There is so much we want to do, so much to achieve. God is a good God, and I know that only what's done for Christ will last into eternity...which makes the accomplishments we want seem so insignificant... BUT we serve a good God! He does care and wants us to have life abundant, not just surviving...thriving. Side note: results still are not posted from Tri Carson! :(
I've come really far...met goals I thought I would be to scared to reach. I feel like nothing is impossible now, because I've come this far.
I want to accomplish my physical goals more than ever now. With the support of my husband, and God behind me, I can. There are many goals I want to achieve. But for now, I want to be able to run the whole 5K coming up next month. I also want to get into the 180's. It's nice to have goals.
I have come this far.....
An overweight unhealthy Mom with no fitness goals....
To -50 pounds, healthier Mom, 3 triathlon finisher, obsessed with Spin, and TONS of fitness goals, including my ULTIMATE goal, an Ironman, and yes I will finish Ironman one day. And it's only by God's grace I've come this far, and I will go even further.

You have come so far! I remember the same sense of accomplishment at the -50 lbs mark. God is so good. Soon you will be in the 180's. :)

Adrienne, you are doing such an amazing job!! And just so you know, your 5K time was actually better than my recent time. And I wasn't able to run the whole time either. I told you I'm slow. =)
