I’m going to throw myself a line here and blog the pep talks I give myself in order to pull out of the rutted areas of my life. I need to enjoy the outdoors more and let the kids do the same. I need to eat healthy foods and lose a whole heck of a lot of weight. I need to pursue my dream of writing inspiring books. I need to pray more and worship God more.
The longest journey ever taken began with that first step. So my first step in this journey toward rutless living is to remind myself that life is short and I shouldn’t sacrifice the joys of life that only balance can bring. I can be healthy and fit, and it’s a wonderful thing to get hooked on physical exercise of one kind or another. I bought Michael Jackson the Experience for our XBox 360 Kinect because I always thought it would be fun to have Michael Jackson moves. I love to dance, and it’s the best way for me to exercise. But the experience isn’t all I hoped it would be.
So what do I need to do to get moving? Whatever it is, I absolutely must spend 20 minutes minimum every single day either walking, following along with my old aerobics tape that helped me get fit in the past, or dancing to tunes. Okay? So starting today I shall make excuses no more.
□ Done! I went walking, pushing Aubrianna in her stroller. In 30 minutes, I feel better already. You’d have to know just how sedentary I’ve been and for how long to understand!
