God has a Sense of Humor

I have made the commitment to get my work-outs in full tilt again. Our travels in November and December threw me off. Four birthdays and an anniversary in February created a bit of chaos in our eating lifestyle.

I spent the past week truthfully evaluating and deciding what things needed attention first. I decided to go back to Chantel Hobb's challenge to work out 5 consecutive days each week (I had been doing 6 but 5 is a good start) and to give up a weakness for a month. For me that will be "added sugar".....as in anything that isn't fruit....so honey, rapadura etc. This means chocolate. I am praying about my trips....because I can't get Chocolate Molten Lava in Northern Japan and may be in a spot where I can order it this month....so maybe ONCE in the month would be o.k.?

ANYWAY - I wanted to start going to the gym, but it seems so daunting to drive 20 min to the gym..... Sunday night I spent a bit of time telling God I really DO want to be disciplined but that the machines work BEST for me at the gym.....

Would you believe Jared's soccer coach has called surprise practices at 6 a.m. every day this week?????? ::snort:: When you live 20 min from the high school and the practice is an hour long at 6 a.m......what ELSE are you going to do for an hour at 6 a.m.?

That's why I get a lot of "outside" things done. We live so far away that going back and forth doesn't make sense. Good luck on the workouts. 6am practices?? oy vey says the "not a morning person" person! Yikes!

LOL. you can't miss when God makes it SO clear!!

Off to check out your Chantal Hobbs link. I need to start doing something again, and whatever it is will be at home. I know my limitations. (Please, God, don't send my kids off to 2x a day anything!)
