Take one day off and I feel all out of sorts. But it must be day 10. I am 1/3 thru this Blogrimage. Already I am wondering what I will do on day 31. Will I continue to blog so regularly? I hope so.
Yesterday was a flop as far as my blog challenge goes. I could give excuses, but really when it comes down to it, I didn’t make time. I kind of agreed sometime in the morning that I wasn’t even going to try. Hmm…
But today was much better. I made a phone call to Spirited. She was at Kohl’s, so we may talk longer this weekend… The phone calling is getting easier and easier. I’ve found that I simply have to muster up some courage and dial without thinking too much about what I may be interrupting on the other end. I wish the excercise was getting easier too…
Aside from jogging, the forms of excercise that I’m choosing are not extremely unpleasant physically. Rather, I just find them SUPER BORING. Crunches? blah. push-ups?yuk. pilates?YAWN. I pretty much hate all those things. The entire time I am doing them I am just watching the clock, waiting for it to be over. But they are some of the easiest to fit into my lifestyle. When I had a gym membership, i rode the bike hard for 30 minutes and then hit the strength training machines. I loved that. Weights are fun for me. Pilates? not so much. I think walking would be my ultimate favorite – fresh air and God’s creation to admire all around me – but that requires that I leave my house (ALONE, cuz no way my kids can keep up with me) for at least 45 minutes – which isn’t possible most of the time. Excuses aside, I need to figure out a way to work walking and biking into my day, because I really get into those.
I read your comment, Pradeepan, about writing more on motherhood. I am thinking on that for sure. I would like to. But I also don’t like making my blogs too long… perhaps just a few tidbits here nad there until this excersize/phone challenge is over.
Side note: Wednesday nights in March are like Spirit Week for the youth ministry I help with. It’s been super fun. Tonight, Star Wars night, I tried to pull off Queen Amidala. Last week was “Me, Ten Years Ago” night, and I got to be pretend pregnant (which is still as fun today as it was when I was six) we’ve also had Western and Extreme Hair Nights. Next week is Countries of the World Night and I’m gonna pull out my saree I picked up on a trip to India.
And now I must get back to that homework that I never finished from last night… after I read a few of your blogs of course!
