It went a little something like this (I feel like I should have a drum roll or at least back up music playing...)
And just for the satisfaction of striking things off the list - the bold strike through!
12. Wear heels comfortably
Not a massive heel but one of many I'm sporting theses days!
My most liked picture on Facebook in 2015. Me, on a plane, legs crossed in Size 14 jeans. I'm wearing Size 10-12 now!
Not only do I rock my favorite Banana Republic "skinny" jeans, they are now my comfy baggy jeans!
The running thing is a big one for me. When I bought our jogging stroller in 2013 I laughed. I never dreamed that I'd run again, let alone pushing a jogger. But here I am - most every weekend - and as long as Ivy will let me! And true training starts tomorrow - time to crank it up and add some distance, speed work and tempo training to my weekly workouts.
This weekend I was thrilled to take XJL on her first trail ride and to ride with her! Riding is something that always reminds me of my youth and it also takes some effort for me to feel confident and capable on horseback. I can even report that other than my knees hurting immediately on dismount, I wasn't even sore! Apparently my legs, core and back muscles are able to handle riding without a problem! (I have NO idea what I am doing with my hands in this photo - judge not!)
I am going to put the following in the category of - partially completed or not yet attempted!
5. Sit comfortably on a Disney ride
I look forward to attempting and photographing this one, Hubs? Should I start the planning?
4. Allow my body to be a testament to my stewardship of the
gifts God has given me.
"In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good deeds and glorify the Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
3. To be healthy
The struggle is real.
2 To be fearless
1. To give myself a future for whatever it may bring.
I don't know what 2016 will bring but I pray that I face each challenge with confidence, perseverance and hope.
