So, as previously mentioned, my friend Rachel and I are training for a triathalon. Right now, we are on a running program and in February, we will switch to training for all 3 things! It has been fun to spend so much time with Rachel.

While I have been training, I have decided to make a lot of changes in the rest of my life. I want the triathalon to be easier for me. So about a month ago I changed my diet and already started feeling better. Since that went so well, I kept going..haha. Now, I've given up Starbucks(except for iced tea) and alcohol.(The Starbucks being more of a big deal than the other one.) So far it hasn't been that bad...and it is definitely much better for me!! It's also awesome because I'm saving money. :)
Then, last week, due to something that happened in my personal life (and because I was already in the spirit of making changes) I gave up facebook. I know...crazy. Ok, so it was only 3 days...but it was an awesome 3 days. I used all that time I usually spend on the computer to read my bible, pray and spend time with my roommates. It made me realize that I need to cut back on the time I spend on it. It is a fun way to keep in touch, but I waste a lot of time on it when I could be doing a lot of other things. It was a great time with God, even if everyone on facebook did mock me. :)
Is there anything in your life you can give up for awhile to better your life or to spend more time with God?

I say HOO and RAY for not so much Facebook. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.

On the other changes, I'm sorry for the catalyst that caused the changes, but I'm proud of you, too. Keep it up, and we could be the champs of the adventure race in May!!

Can't wait to see you this weekend. HUGS x3
