Live What You Believe

So today's post title is a challenge to each of us. I am being poked by the Holy Spirit in one big area right now: self-discipline. Ouch!

But it's summer! I whine (ineffectively)

My use of time is the biggest culprit but there are more subtle ones too like my eating and exercise habits, (non existent), taming my tongue (yikes I thought I had that one down...), what my thoughts are of people (sometimes critical and judgmental...sad face)

I have wanted to blog more since I have more time, but I have come to this point of getting poked to realize I need to make some serious course corrections right now. Hence this point of confession.

I would love your help. What are your tried and true techniques for managing life? Exercise? Eating habits?

Suggestions are more than welcome. In fact, greatly desired!

  1. So sorry for my part in the silence following this post. My excuse is that I don't have these things figured out either. Exercise: I bought new running shoes and had Darin fix the jogging stroller. Then my son started sleeping later, so I did too. =) There went my jogging time. I did just sign up to work at the day care at Kennedy which gives me a free membership. We'll see if that works. I'd love to take a yoga class. Food: I don't buy stuff I don't want to be eating. I don't walk down the cookie isle. I rarely bake. That means in the midst of a snack craving there is sometimes nothing to eat, which isn't fun, but I'm staying somewhat healthy. I am finally making smoothies for myself more often, but not every day like I should. My favorite at the moment: cabbage, lettuce, one kale leaf, blueberries, mango, and whatever other fruit in the house needs to be eaten. Plus water. Yum!
