Lately I've been thinking about things in my life that I need to change. There were two things that popped into my mind right away.
1. I need to start working out. Since I came home from my visit up north, I've found my clothes don't fit the same (they are tighter). My hips have larger love handles on them and my stomach is hanging a bit over the belt. But more important than all that is that I do not feel healthy and strong. This week I've started using our treadmill again. I'm going slow, but I working my body. I'm doing intervals of running and walking and will work up to running hopefully a 5k. (It's on my to do list.) I have to say that on the days I work out I feel proud of myself. I feel strong. I feel like I'm doing something good for my body. That isn't to say that I don't have to drag myself upstairs in the mornings questioning why I'm even bothering, but when I'm done I have my answer--it makes me feel good.
So hopefully I'm going to continue. I hope you will hold me to it.
2. I spend way, way, way too much time at the computer. It isn't fair to my kids, and it doesn't help me being productive in the things that really need to get done. I find that when I'm on the computer it goes something like this "I just have to check this...", and then "oh wait, let me just look at this other thing...", and then "that reminds me, I wanted to look up this other thing..." and it goes on and on. So I'm trying really hard to limit my time on the computer when the kids are awake. At most I only want to spend a total of 30 minutes on the internet during the day (except for nap time). Maybe that will help me prioritize what really is important in my life from the internet and what I don't need to be doing. Don't worry though, blogging is definitely a priority.
Are you working on making any changes in your life?
