CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge
Mom of 3 on a Mission
A few years ago I took a really long, hard look at my life and gave myself some goals. The first ews to finish college and, and as my grandmother says, if the good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise, I will graduate at the end of this semester.
My other goal is to get myself in shape. Sadly that has gotten worse, and even my cholesterol is starting to show. I need help.
I just finished a study with the youth I work with by John Ortberg called "The Me I Want to Be". The study encourages you to recognize your gifts and to search and go for your dreams. Ortberg says not to ask for easy or manageable, but to follow your dreams to the uncomfortable mountains. This is my mountain. I don't want to be something new. I want to be a better version of me - the me I want to be.
