Hi! I'm alive and the girls are moved and settled at their colleges! :)
It continues to be quite busy around here, because we are also now moving. However, it's working out pretty good -- the second college student move ended and we came home with perfect time to focus on our own move.
I also feel more ready to focus on my health. One of the things I am working on is making sure to get some exercise in daily. To make it as regular to me as my morning devotions; so necessary that I feel lost if I skip it.
To be honest, exercising is easy for me when I don't have a lot going on, but when I get busy it's the first thing to go. I don't always regret that, as it is sometimes what my schedule requires, but I know intentional exercise is key for me to be healthier.
Making sure to get exercise in has required me to rethink my days a little and I'm finding that it works out nicely if I get it done directly after taking my son to school. This means I come home and do my devotions after exercise, which I was hesitant to do because I like to start my day with devotions before any distractions set in.
When I'm at the gym, or walking, my mind begins to think about the day and it takes a bit of focus to block it all out for just a little longer to spend some time in prayer. However, I've followed this new schedule for a few days and it's gone just fine.
Changing up my routine is a little uncomfortable, but I think as I really think about what's important to me and make decisions to take care of those priorities I will be a better person for it.
