Wow! I am always amazed how quickly time goes by when you want it to slow down. Some times it feels like time is not constant, which is weird. Anyway, I digress.
I am still getting used to this blogging thing. Hence my initial comment. It amazes me that my last post was on Jan 30 and it is already Feb 5. Where did the time go?
Well, I'll tell you. Saturday was my sister's musical and she did AWESOME!!! Man, to think that voice came out of my baby sister just knocks me back. My quiet, reserved, laid-back sister rocked (and I mean ROCKED) Aretha Franklins "I will survive" with soul and then brought tears with Celine Dion's "A new day." Sunday we tried out a new church in Michigan. Aaron and I realized how blessed we are by our church family and pastors. They truly speak the word of God as they are commanded and I am so grateful for that. We also hung out with my parents and brother and his fiance. Monday was Mommy and Jenny day while Aaron slept in. There were so really awesome deals at Kohl's! Then it was off to LVOP in Pittsburgh on Monday night, CSI with Aaron on Tuesday, Pioneers on Wednesday, babysitting the Joshua on Thursday and now I sit alone as my husband braves the snow with a bunch of high schoolers on their way to snow camp. Crazy? I think yes.
So with all this going on, how has my exercising been? Well, honestly, not the best though present. Saturday was my longest run...ever! 50 full minutes of beautiful, lightly snow covered, FLAT ground! Oh Michigan, you claim hills but you have no idea! I would say my distance was probably 4.5 to 5 miles, which is almost half of my goal! hooray! Sunday is always my day off. Lord has declared it the Sabath day and His children are to rest. I feel convicted that means study His word, attend church and small group, and rest. I did more push-ups and sit ups on Tuesday. Other than that, my efforts have been weak. I was going to go out tonight, but this giant snow storm decided to come and play in Pittsburgh so I resolve to study and sit on the couch with some hot chocolate! Yummy! Since I can't go outside to work out, I'll work more on my push-up and sit up goal. Maybe I'll have a six-pack by summer! maybe.
Tomorrow's running goal is to run at least 50 minutes. Since I will be running in the mountain, I need to account for the hills. We'll see how that goes.
O Come, Emmanuel
