I went for a walk yesterday.
I walk/jogged somewhere between a mile and a half to two miles.
Then I went home and was too tired to fix dinner so I ordered pizza.
And made my husband make the 45 minute round trip to pick it up.
Okay, I didn't make him.
But I like to sound bossy. :)
I inhaled two pieces of that pizza and I didn't even feel bad.
I need to walk/jog more often.
I only do it about once a month.
That's far below the required exercise amounts required to be considered healthy.
I always have an excuse not to, rarely are they ever GOOD ones, but I have excuses, nonetheless.
So, for me, once a month is actually pretty good!
My mind, heart, and emotions are heavy today.
They have been for weeks now.
That's mainly why I went for a walk/jog yesterday.
I needed to relieve the tension I was feeling.
It helped, but I can already tell, today is going to need to be a repeat...
Except, without the pizza.
I better come up with something better for dinner tonight than pizza.
Homemade chicken noodle soup in the crock pot with hot wheat rolls sounds good...
Too bad I didn't think ahead better and get it ready before I left for work this morning.
I can't make pancakes and eggs again or my boys are going to have meltdowns.
My cousin-in-law posted this quote the other day and I can't stop thinking about it:
“We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.” - Marjorie Hinckley
I know this is such a hard thing for so many women.
We just have this drive to be perfect at everything!
We want everyone to think we can do it all and that it is all easy for us.
Sister Hinckley hit the nail right on the head.
This is where I'm at right now in my life.
I'm tired of trying to be good at everything.
I'm tired of feeling like I have to fit EVERY mold.
I'm tired of pushing myself so hard I crash and burn because I get over-committed.
I'm not going to do it anymore.
I'm just going to learn how to be content with what I am.
Flaws and all.
I hope you'll join me.
Let's do it together!
