Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in GOD's sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

No more Bon-bons and chips

Hey there! So Tuesday I went to the gym for the first time in like a month! It's ridiculous.... The moment I walked inside I told myself my punishment for not working out as much as I should is a Jillian Challange. That was my plan. What is a Jillian Challange? Well I kinda made it up. It's were I go on a treadmill or elliptical and just go! I love treadmills the most so I try to go on those more (if ones open). I ran seven out of twenty minutes. Now that honestly is not alot but it was hard! I wish I could say my highest what a 6.5 and my lowest was a 4.5 but that failed! I started off right at a 6.5 and went for five minutes (aiming for ten) but my left cafe had a HORRIBLE pain so I lowered to 4.5. Lowered a little more so I could keep up some what of a pace but get this pain out and away. I put it at a 4.0 and said ok I'm gunna have to deal with it. Of course, I gave in and went at a grandma pace of 3.5. I was so angry with myself! I did a little more running and walking to a total of 20 minutes. I wanted to just run and not care about my leg but I figured I better not pull anything! Hopefully I will be able to give more happy gym stories later on!! Have a good FRIDAY!


  1. Sydney, do not get on a treadmill at 6.5, start at like 3 and go up. just do a fast walk, don't hurt yourself!

  2. I wasn't 'hurting' myself. Just pushing...

  3. You can do it girl! :-)
