I finally worked out!! Ok, it was only the 1-mile but it does feel good. I am TOTALLY out of shape. I guess those walks to the park pushing 80-90lbs of kids in the double stroller is not doing it for me! I actually broke a sweat doing the 1-mile!! That's terrible! When I did the arm stretchie, I couldn't wait til she was done. I used to think the 1-mile was just for fun and never broke a sweat. I used to do it on those days when I didn't have time for anything else. Now, I barely "fit" it in today. Well, it is a step. I DO have to give a plug for Leslie Sansone and her workout programs, I DO love them. I have this one, (and several others)the Express set, (I got a couple years ago at Sam's club for like $19) She is so encouraging and fun to workout with/to.
My coffee ran out today and I am not planning on buying more. I need to start eating a good breakfast, not just my leisurely coffee at 9:30 with a granola bar. Even if I have to gag through it, I have to do it. I say that now, but I know I will end up having a large glass of Ovaltine chocolate milk instead. It's always the same thing, I need to change my life. I need to get a schedule. I need to GET UP EARLY!! My friend Sarah, came to visit me last Friday (overnight visit!) and she loaned me a CD (I can't remember what it was called) but it had priests on it who sang and chanted and talked a little. One priest right away in the beginning said this: "the hardest part of my day is getting out of bed. Once I get out of bed and start my prayer it makes no difference." I could meditate on that one quote all day! It's true,and totally me, except by 2pm I am falling asleep during reading time. I'd have to say this is one of my biggest struggles. (my parents being the other but I'm not going to go there)
How is your Consecration going? Tomorrow is the end of the first 12 preliminary days. Which means after tomorrow the prayers get a little harder. By the 3rd week when the rosary is added, it gets really hard. (with kids, that is) During this whole consecration time I always start really looking at myself and my life and try to change those things that need changing. (I guess I try to do that all the time, but more during this time) I think it becomes more focused. SO that is how it is going for me, how about you?
