I'm proud to say that my sister Kelly and I have completed TWO, yes TWO, days of working out! And I have also spent two days eating very healthily. Last night I had a dream (after my amazing workout) that I had already lost a ton of weight and my pants were lose. Then I woke up and remembered that I had only completed one amazing workout and even though miracles have been know to happen they didn't happen for me last night. I'm pretty sore tonight thanks to a machine that Kelly and I call the crazy bike. This thing is really crazy and I'm sure I look pretty manic when I'm using it!
School was GOOD today. I know! It was so great I was wondering who had replaced my kids??! Well, I did have one kid scream out "what the f..!" when I asked him to put his homework in his bookbag, but you can't ask for perfection right?
I also spent some time watching Passion again tonight and it was so good. I watched Francis Chan preach and he is so passionate and real that I just love listening to him. One soundbite from his talk: "I'm going to BEG you to read this book (Bible). Be consumed by it. Read it for yourself." It reminded me of something that is said a lot at my church that is the answer to so many questions: "It's the Word. It's the Word. It's the Word." I forget that but it is true. Every time I open the word I realize how true it is.
I found a new blog today: Equip and Empower. She said that things are hard to do when you say that you HAVE to do them. For example, I have to workout. I have to do my Bible study. I have to go to church. They are much easier when you say that you WANT to do them. I want to be healthy. I want to grow to be more like Jesus. I want to spend time with the Lord. So, I'm going to work on changing my thinking. Instead of HAVING to do things, I'm going to WANT to do them.
