I played some bball last night and hurt my ankle. At least when I went to bed, it started to throb quite painfully. So I am trying to take it easy (no bball tonight) so's I can run on Saturday because I am so STOKED.
I went jogging with a friend the other day and we ran a 5k at about 44 minutes. (stopping to walk only briefly). So I know I can do it. It's amazing to come from just 1 minute of running to 23 minutes in one shot. I still feel extremely nervous for some reason.
I got me some T-shirts too... I am liken these!! It's all about what you BELIEVE, this is true. Believe the best or believe the worst and you give power to that thought. So why let all those negative thoughts waste our energy anymore?
Brent comes home in just a few hours. He almost didn't make the flight due to his ticket arriving in the mail just hours before he's to leave. Thanks again to prayer! I am SOOOO wickedly excited to see him for this weekend. He's on a plane right now!
My latest favorite food is this Ramen Salad. Oh my.... SOOO good! With cabbage, broken up ramen noodles, craisens, and a dressing made from olive oil, rice vinegar, and the ramen seasoning packet. This is the basic recipe I like to use. I also like to put some cut up rotisserie chicken in it too. I really have to portion eat this salad because it is so addictivly good! It's all about Moderation and Portion Control for me right now and ever!
It's gonna be an amazing weekend!
