Last year, my word for the year was *Joy*.
I tried to be Joyful of and in everything. I know I didn't succeed as much as I would have liked, but that's ok! My goal was to strive to be Joyful! And I'm pretty sure I at least accomplished that!
This year I've decided my word will be *STRONG*! :)
I want to become stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually!
I am already planning on doing the Iron Bombshell Program starting on Monday, which will hopefully make me stronger physically!
I will also be starting my running training back up and just doing my own plan of trying to increase my mileage each week! I have a few races in mind and need to become Half ready ASAP! :)
I will have to become Strong to leave my child on a daily basis to go to a new job! I will start a job as a school nurse this month! I am really excited about this new adventure!
I will also have to be Strong to get my workouts in BEFORE I go to work each morning! Like, I'll need to wake up at 5 and workout before the sun comes up! It will be crazy, but I'm already preparing my brain for it! And you know most of working out is mental anyway, so I've got to prepare my mind!! :)
I'll become Strong with the Health of my family! We are getting back to eating better after the holidays! Having my new essential oils will also help in becoming healthy!! I am very excited to dive deeper into that world and use my oils for everything!! :)
I also want to become Stronger in The Lord! I have put my relationship with Him on the back burner while trying to be a good mom, good wife, constantly thinking about weightloss and what I'm putting in my face, and when I will fit my next workout in. When I'm getting up extra early to workout, I would like to incorporate a devotional time in there before the family wakes up!
So there you have it!
My goals for 2014 have been incorporated with my word Strong!
Do you have a Word for the Year?
If so, what will yours be?
I would love to hear it!! :)
Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all have a healthy and happy 2014!!! :)

I know Fall is very busy for runners, and I do have a few fun 5K's that I would like to do, but I'm just not into the racing season as much as I was last year.
I am aiming for the Cowtown half (which is in February) as being my next half, and I'm hoping I can be ready by then.
Even with the little running I've been doing, I feel like I'm getting a bit faster because of the weight lifting. I know so many people who have said it really does help a runner. I just always said...Yeah Yeah, I know, but I HATE weight lifting! It's so boring!...But it's not anymore! And to see it benefit my 1st love of running has made me want to do it even more! :)
I haven't even mapped out a training plan yet, but I'm pretty sure I want to do a Jeff Galloway training plan with running and walking. I just seem to do better with some walking breaks in there! :)
So I have to admit...typing all that out has made me so excited for this half!! Yay!!
Oh how I love running! Especially in the Fall!
I will soon be teaching a Couch to 5K program for Stroller Strides and I am SOOOO excited about this!
I can't wait to show them all how fun running can be!
If you have any coaching experience and have any words of advice or wisdom for me, please share!
This is a new journey for me, but I can't wait for it to start!
As for the weight loss front.
I have actually gained more weight and still not seeing results.
I guess my next step is to go see a doctor.
I don't like doctors. lol
I guess I'm afraid of what they will tell me.
And yes I know how ironic it is that I'm a nurse that doesn't like doctors or modern day medicine!
I would just like to do everything as natural as possible at first.
That's why I don't want to do pills or shakes.
But now that I've exhausted all of that, guess it's time to suck it up and go!
I'm ready for some answers!!!
I'll let everyone know if I actually get the courage to go!
For now, I will just enjoy feeling better and keep on doing what I love!
Running and Weightlifting!
