BUT let me give you my excuses anyway- 1)I have been out of town and I'm not cool enough to have a BB 2) I lack creative writing skills 3)I am lame.... so with that said let me redeciate myself! I love this freakin blog it is a life saver it makes me accountable and I know every time I open it I am able to smile...it helps me stay in contact with you too...
Saturday I ran my six miles let me tell you its obvious I am not at sea level and it basically sucks how quickly running shape leaves you... I sucked! I was barely able to finish within a 10 minute mile and I totally walked for 30 seconds every mile, I had no get up and go..but I am totally looking forward to tomorrow morning.
I have realized I really need to do some spring cleaning with myself- so here are the area of my life that need so serious work and will be changing...
MY DIET: can we talk about how out of control it is. The next three days I will be keeping a food log to see really how bad it is- but I can tell you I NEED to get the sugar under control and obvious start eating fruits and veggies!
EXERCISE: I love running but I need to set some running goals and I am seriously going to put more effort into cross training between biking and rollerblading- so I will keep you updated as I come up with those changes...any suggestions please?
SPRITUALLY: I need to pick up the slack, my prayers need some serious work!Also I need to step up inforcing praying with Ty, and that family night thing, luckly I can be confident we are doing a good job going to the temple and paying tithing but pretty much every other area is simply a habit and lacking "cream filling"
FINANCIAL: basically we just need to stop wasting so much money...
PHYSICALLY I figure those things will fall into place as the diet, exercise, and spirtual stuff kick in,
And I am sure thats more than you ever needed to know...but I figure that type of "thinking out loud" chatter is what I would have worked through out loud with you two during a long run so there you have it! And now that I have said it all out loud I am hoping you two will set up some kind of a point system for me:)
I also just want to thank both of you- I think you both set a great example and have helped my become aware of how important it is to constantly be working to better yourself. As lame as it sounds I remember one time last year saying to tyson, "You know until I started running with Amanda and Lori I forgot (or didn't realize) I still need to be working on bettering myself and developing talents." I think ty just laughed and gave some smart response to my oblibion!
