Update on my workout!

I pretty much post about working out on my triathlon blog, but I am pretty proud of my progress in just a few weeks. So I am going to share my thoughts here also. :)

I have been really dedicated and kept to my workout. I have been working out/exercising for about one month now, but I found a day by day workout plan about a week ago and followed it last week. I am excited how much easier it has been than I anticipated. Tonight I am pretty exhausted, but it feels soooo wonderful! I went down to our community gym and walked on the treadmill at a pace of 3.8-4.0 mph for 20 minutes. (then I cool down) then I change and swam freestyle (front crawl) for 100 yds. (then I cool down 50 yds). Tonight I added some wieghts to gain some muscle tone and strength in my shoulders and arms. So needless to say they are jello-ee.

I am also very excited because Bryan said he would start working out with me hooray~ that will benefit both of us :) Bryan has to start getting up earlier to get prepared to start getting up early for his job. Anyway, just thought I would share.

Good for you, Jamie! I am so proud of you for this current goal, I don't think I would have the courage to try a Triathalon. Keep up the great work!

I am glad your face hasn't suffered from the effects of prednisone, have you looked at my face lately, ugh, I have a double chin!!!

You have some awesome goals for the year, I will pray that you accomplish EVERY ONE!

Love you! Nancy

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
