Sorry I’ve been absent

Happy Thursday evening everyone!
I am writing this from my iPad in the Atlanta airport…I’m not supposed to be here right now. I should be in Jackson with my family already, but unfortunately I missed my flight so here I sit. I’m having flashbacks from my family’s trip back from Europe and our 8 hour delay in this same place.

Anyway, since I have time and I am all worked out, I figured I would update on my life.
This week has been really hard. The adjustment into working has knocked me on my butt: mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Wednesday evening I was certain I had run at least 10 miles that day, but no, I did not run 10 miles. My legs just aren’t used to standing and running around ALL day. Hopefully next week won’t be as rough, but I’m preparing for the tired.

I have been terrible when it comes to the goals I set for myself last week. Lets recap those bad boys-
1) stay in the word
2) exercise regularly
3) update the blog regularly.

Lets just say those goals have not been met. I did exercise this week by taking Avery on 2 mile walks most days, but I really need to get into running. It’s hard to convince myself to go after I get home and plop on the couch.

Staying in the word: well, I have 0 excuse and I know it is getting to me. This year is going to be really difficult and I tend to rely on myself unless I am really digging into the word. I need to hold myself more accountable.

Updating the blog- let me be honest here. This week the blog has not been my priority. By the time I get home and get myself together, I am too tired to blog. And I don’t feel as if my life is very blog worthy right now.

I need to stick to my goals and get myself together. I am letting this week off the hook because I was getting used to working again. Next week, though, I am back in the game.
Jesus, exercise, and writing are my three favorite things (besides teaching) and I know that I am just better when I am spiritually and physically feeling fit.

Anyway, I am on my way to my brother’s wedding and to see my sweet family. I will update about this weekend when I get back on Sunday.
Happy Weekend, everyone!
