Week 4 Update/Prayer Request

Well, this week has been crazy busy for me, and I haven't had time to read the blog, let alone post!  I did lose 3lbs this week, and I managed to get in 60 minutes of exercise almost everyday, and the 64 oz of water is definitely an easy thing for me!  So, I guess it was a high point week--even w/o posting! 
The Lord has opened up so many doors as a result of my fitness journey.  Please pray for me specifically as I minister to my co-worker, Milette.  She is a very crass and vulgar (in speech) person who needs the Lord.  She is obese (starting, I'm guessing above where I started), and has dubbed me her trainer!  In the past I have avoided her like the plague b/c of her language and attitude, but this has forced me to open up to her.  She requested to be invited to my blog, and as a result has definitely been exposed to the Gospel.  As a result, she has adjusted her speech around me--Praise the Lord!  I am meeting her about 3 times a week to exercise with her for about an hour or so.  Of course, for me it isn't very strenuous, so I have to come home and do my own exercise which has really cramped me time-wise.  However, I believe that this is something that the Lord assigned as my ministry and my "burden" at this time.  I am thankful to Him that He has given me this opportunity and look forward to what He is going to do in the future.
