I had been pondering this thought this yesterday. The more I think about it, the more I realize that our life is a series of "choices". We make hundreds of choices a day - choices that direct our lives and creates a link to another choice, and then another.
For example, here are some of my thoughts and choices dilemma this morning when I woke up:
Should I get up or should I try to sleep again? (got up)
Should I check my blogs or should I make coffee first? (checked my blog)
Should I continue blogging or should I make coffee now? (brewed coffee)
Notice there was no "Bible reading or quite time" yet on the choices. I was just being honest. Although I must say my first thought when I woke up was "Lord, what should I do today?"
Here's another series of thoughts and choices to make:
Should I continue blogging or should I put on my shoes to run in the treadmill?
Should I drink coffee first or type some more?
Should I do a garage sale today (which I had been wanting to do with the kids since summer vacation started) or should I just donate all these to Salvation Army and just relax and have fun with the kids?
Should I do chores or exercise? If I don't do the chores immediately, they pile up. If I don't exercise I my muffin top grows (incidentally, I was told by my husband that there's another "meaning" of muffin top aside of the belly hanging out from my waist - some guys knows what it is he said - from an old rock song. Not so modest so i won't say. But I guess you can guess. Anyway, he said I should be careful using that term. Well, I am using it as my belly description. There!)
Anyway, back to choices, I really should be hopping on the treadmill. I "fell out of the Ragamuffin Soul's Ragamuffintop Challenge" for weeks, I need to get back in. Thanks to Gretchin for her encouragement on this post, I'm back.
Weight: 107 lbs. (I started with 105 - as you can see, I am going backwards and it needs to be reversed back to 105 lbs.)
Goal: to run 10 K in 6 months.
Another goal: treadmill exercise at least 3 times a week. More is better.
New photo will be posted shortly. The one on top is from my first Ragamuffin Challenge post.
So, how are you doing? or any advice or encouragement? Please let me know here :)
