Healthy Living – Update 6


Update 6


Hi guys! I’m back!! I apologize for being M.I.A. last week, but I had a lot going on. It was my last week at work & I was crazy busy. And, on top of that, I had to use what little free time I had to pack up my house. Boy, I tell you, you never know how much stuff you have until you have to pack it up! For those of you who don’t know, I moved to Atlanta this pass weekend. Yes, the opportunity presented itself and I decided to “branch” out. I can honestly say I’m overjoyed about this transition. It’s something I’ve desired to do for years.  And, I really believe God is aligning me for the next stage in my life…whatever that may be! Hey, I trust Him!

Any who, let’s get to today’s post: I just wanted to update you guys on my recent progress. I weighed myself and measured my waistline on April 16th, and here are the results:

Weight: 126.5lbs (previously 132lbs)

Waistline: 27in (previously 29in)


Here’s a pic of my tummy:


(This is the flattest its been in a long time, but I still want to work on toning & adding definition)


I apologize that I don’t have a detailed assessment like I usually do, but I don’t have fancy tools like Abei. Anyway, I’m very pleased with my progress! BUT, since I’m no longer under Abei’s supervision, my devotion will truly be tested in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. I’ve done good so far, though. I found the gym at my new complex, and I’ve hit the treadmill the past two days for 20mins (I run a mile & walk for the remainder of the time). I think the hardest thing will be staying on track with healthy eating…I’ll keep you guys posted! **G.I.G.**


New Gym

P.S. – Abei is not completely out of the picture. I’ve sent her pics of the equipment in my gym, and she’s going to temporarily send me weekly workout routines until I feel comfortable enough to come up with my own…Completely Random: I start my new job today, so any and all prayers will be very much appreciated!
