I totally forgot to wish my dear readers a Happy First Day of Spring yesterday! I hope your day was gorgeous (and pollen free!). Ours was a little on the cool side, but the sun was out. Alise had her second track meet, but unfortunately, Wayne and I weren't able to go and it killed this Mama's soul. I am so thankful for friends that can chauffeur my kid around when I'm stuck in the office on a three hour conference call.
The 4 W's For Spring wasn't something that I purposely planned. This post just sorta came together on its own and so I just ran with it. These are the things going on in my world lately.
1. Walking - When Alise was out for Spring Break in February, I started back with my walking routine with a mile a day. I'm trying to get my energy and stamina level back for our upcoming trip to Disney and although I know that we'll be walking A LOT while we're there, my personal goal is two miles five to six days a week. I've been off and on with my walking over the last few years, but two miles is a good goal for me. Once I'm acclimated, I can walk it in about thirty to thirty five minutes. This past Sunday, I increased my range to two miles, but I'm no where near the thirty minute mark. I'm pressing on.
2. Water - I'm in the third week of water wellness and I really hate it. I've fallen off the wagon once. And by that, I mean no water all day, Just Diet Coke. I had to "cheat" just a little in the beginning with the caffeine headaches, but I never drank an entire soda. Other than that, it's been water all the way. Oh, how I miss my Diet Cokes, but my skin is really loving my decision right now. I feel like such a failure when I challenge myself to do this because I ALWAYS end up going back to the fizzies. Restaurants are my downfall.
3. Word - Our Life Group leader has challenged us to begin memorizing Bible scripture, so I have index cards laying on my night stand, my car, my desk at the office, and my side of the vanity. I memorize one to two verses a week. We've been discussing what it means to really know God as Father, even if you never had a good relationship with your earthly Father. I have a story to share with y'all soon.
4. Weather - We've had a wet Spring so far here in Louisiana, but I have SO enjoyed opening the windows throughout the house and letting everything have a good airing. Wayne complains that I'm "letting the pollen in (it showed up in full force this past week!)," but I just don't see it that way. After being cooped up all winter, and being able to walk through the house and feel a nice breeze, it makes me smile. Pollen, shmollen. That's what Claritin is for.
Just keeping it real, Peeps! Enjoy your Wednesday!
P.S. Alise and I were looking through some pictures of some old blog posts a few nights ago and I just realized that I celebrated my TWELFTH BLOGIVERSARY on March 18th! I can't believe I've been blogging that long! Wow!
