Today I have a hugely busy day. My gig shooting for The Crystal Shoppe starts today, which I am SUPER excited about. I’ve been practicing and trying different lighting setups and I really can’t wait to get there and get some beautiful images. I also have some calls to make today to speak with jewelry stores in the area. I really love shooting jewelry, so I would be thrilled to get a few more clients in that industry. One company that I have a meeting with today is an estate jeweler and their pieces are absolutely gorgeous. I would be over the moon to be able to showcase these pieces, everyone cross your fingers and send good vibes in this general direction! 😉
I know some of you have been following along with the downsizing and the words of encouragement I’ve gotten from you all is amazing. Yesterday was week 6 day 2 of couch to 5k, so I only have 7 more runs before its complete. I can’t believe the difference in my running ability. Yesterdays run was 5 min warm up walk, 10 min run, 3 min walk, 10 min run, 5 min cool down walk. I completed it with no problems. That’s just amazing to me. If you’d said that 6 weeks ago I would have laughed at you. Tomorrow’s run is the last one with any walking in the middle, so I better enjoy it! My first 5k on March 10 is coming up quickly, I have to be ready.
I stepped on the scales this morning and I’m down 20 lbs so far this year. It has definitely been a struggle at times to make sure I always eat right and always go do my run every other day (sometimes 2 days off between “weeks” of couch to 5k). However, I’m staying on course for the most part and honestly my clothes feel like they are fitting a lot better than 20 lbs worth. I know I have a LONG way to go, but seeing these mini successes will only make it easier.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
