I figured that I could make a list today. Lists seem to be easier for me nowadays when it comes to blogging. I’ve noticed that my blog seems to have taken a rather serious/random tone lately. I would love to make people laugh from reading my posts. So, this post is going to be centered on one thing.
Things that have “gone out the window” lately for me. Meaning, they’ve pretty much faded from my life/routine/priorites/etc.
–Exercising. Remember when I was was so excited about my exercise routine? Well, as always, it didn’t last. This happens every year. I start out the school year so motivated and ready to get in some serious shape. Then…a month later, I’m done.
I don’t know what it is, but exercising and I just don’t go well together. I know it’s the best thing you can do for your body – I took a physical fitness course all of last year! I know the benefits we reap from exercising; I know it is important to exercise. I know. But it just doesn’t work for this girl.
Whenever I start exercising, after one or two days, I start feeling sick when I do it. Then after 3-5 days, I’m exhausted when I do it. Also, exercising in the morning should wake me up and make me feel invigorated for the day, right? That’s what I thought. However, after exercising in the mornings, I feel tired and exhausted for the rest of the day. I have a hard time concentrating on school, let alone staying awake. I feel sore, sick, and weary.
I’m pathetic, aren’t it? Well, needless to say, my exercise program has stopped, and I honestly feel like a bazillion times healthier now. I have much more energy during the day, and overall feel better.
I’m still doing push-ups and sit-ups though, so you can breathe a sigh of relief. I’m still doing some exercise. I enjoy resistance exercise – aka, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, etc. They work really well for me. At least that’s some kind of exercise that my body doesn’t rebel against. 😉
–Okay, I guess it’s only that one thing. I thought I had more, but I can’t remember them now. Speaking of remembering, I’m having kind of a hard time remembering things lately. More specifically, remembering if things I remember are from a dream or if they actually happened.
Did that make sense? My dreams have been very vivid lately, but I can’t really remember what they are. However, they make enough of an impact on me that during the day I’ll remember something (an image, a line someone spoke, or a conversation) and I can’t figure out if it came from a dream or in person. It’ll seem so familiar, but I can’t remember it actually happening. It’s frustrating, to say the least, and I feel like I’m going insane. Or as Alice would say in Alice in Wonderland, “Have I gone ’round the bend?”
Well…I still feel like this was a very weird post. I ended up writing about two things (exercising and memory) instead of one, and I don’t think it was funny enough to make people laugh. Perhaps my next post will be funnier. Stay tuned for “My Happy Thoughts” – inspired by Maddie. We came up with a plan that if I post about my happy thoughts, she’ll post about hers, and then we’ll compare them. I look forward to reading your happy thoughts, Maddie!
Even though this was a strange post, perhaps it interested you some. Or, perhaps it will touch someone out there in a way I could never imagine. (Someone with an anti-exercising body as well?? haha) After all, in Luke 12:12, the Bible says that, ‘The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that we always say the right thing (I wish! That would be nice), but that if you’re struggling with what you should say, and you pray for help, the Lord will give you the help you need.
