So I officially forgot about my "blog". I knew it would happen sooner or later, I was just hoping for "later" and not three days after starting!! Oh well... The important thing to know is that I remembered and came back to it, right??? Things around here have been crazy busy and exactly normal. I don't really know how to explain how we end up so incredibly busy but before I knew it, I have every weekend in March and April booked with either church related activities, conferences, work events, and girls' nights! And, yet, at the end it feels completely normal to be incredibly busy. I wonder if we would know what to do with "FREE" time..I mean, really free.. because a Saturday afternoon that cleaning and groceries still needs to get done in, doesn't constitute free time. In fact, those times get budgeted in just the same!! Anyhow, I am excited about the next few weeks. We just did a financial seminar today at a local church. Nothing was incredibly profound and, as a detail-oriented person, most tips for effectiveness, we already practice, but overall it was a good day. The speaker gave some good insight into a few areas where I wasn't quite confident yet and if that is all I got from it, it was worth it! Next weekend (with the exception of OneWorship on Friday night) I have saturday free. I am hoping to get in a run outdoors (I hear nice weather is coming)...Don't get me wrong, I love the conveniece and comfort of the gym but I'm no fool and there's no way I am running a 5K without running real natural hills. It makes me cringe just thinking about it, but I am going to persevere! After that, there isn't anything open until May...and that time is reserved for getting ready for the cruise!
In other news, I have been doing this 5 star program and I am really excited about its results, not only in my own life-but in the excitement of friends and family! Basically it goes something like this
STAR 1: Get enough sleep at night- 71/2 to 8 hours of sleep
STAR 2: Eat right- And start with breakfast
STAR 3: Log a work-out, whatever that means to you
STAR 4: Stretch your muscles...your PHYSICAL muscles, stretching is important in preventing injury and can be very relaxing as well
STAR 5: Do something positive for someone else. Not only is it self-gratifying but you could be making a huge difference in someone else's life.
Its been really great for me, I have been constantly looking for different work-out opportunities, healthier food options, and ways to make someone elses' day. It's not a perfect science but its a good way to calculate whether or not you are meeting your goals!
The kitchen is calling me...and not for food unfortunately. Its time to clean the kitchen so that tomorrow I am not burdened with housework after church!
