Doesn't that title just grab ya? I'm feeling kind of out of it the last couple of days. My mind is just drawing absolute blanks on things to post. Maybe it's the fact that the holidays just ended. Maybe it's the fact that I let myself get into the bad habit of staying up way, way, way too late and then sleeping in so now my routine is totally out the door, and I'm having to get up for work early but I'm still going to bed way too late. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't stopped putting food in my face for about 3 weeks now and my body probably needs a major fast just to clear it of all the excess. Maybe it's the fact that I majorly need to get some fresh air and exercise. And just maybe it's because the wind has been howling for two days and I mean howling, and that changes the air pressure which changes the pressure in my head to one which causes pain.
Do you think that's enough excuses? Sheesh!
In thinking on and addressing the above, I am sorta appalled at myself seeing how unhealthy I have let myself get in the last 6 months. I'm getting aches and pains that I've never gotten before. But seeing as I hate to make New Year's resolutions, because I just set myself up for failure and then feel even worse, I have basically avoided taking a good look at where I'm sorta sitting right now and how I've done things in this last year. But no more, I feel I must take a look. So in view of that, I think I need to make more definite, defineable, acheiveable goals for some personal areas. I'll post them tomorrow, just 'cause I know you will a shrivel up if you don't know my goals. Ya. More like to keep me sorta accountable. But for today, I think I'll pray on my thoughts a bit and see what God puts on my heart, which sorta falls into my seeking Him more from the post mentioned above.
Boy can I get anymore run-on and rambling in this post?
Yes, okay, let's see. I so enjoyed Katrina's Fall Into Reading Book Challenge, and seeing another is not being done until spring, I thought I'd just keep challenging myself for now. The challenge really helped me to focus a bit more, although I did peter out in reading in December, but again, I'm just blaming it on all the things mentioned in the first paragraph of this very rambling post. Anyway, I've read of a few people who made a year's reading list and I think I will do that too. I'll post it in my sidebar under the exotic title of "Enriching My Mind". I'll post what I'm reading, what's next on the list, and then keep a running list. Just for my own encouragement. And I'm going to make a goal of 30 books for this year. I might up that, I'll have to see, but I'd like to have at least 5 of those be non-fiction. At the end of the year we'll, or I'll, see how I've done.
So, now that I've totally numbed your minds, I'll sign off and get to the seeking God part of my goal. Have a wonderful day and if you have any ideas on how to motivate me back to some exercise, have at the comments.
