The past week has been nice. The hubster and I had a couple runs logged and we talked some more about where he could finish a Spartan Beast. I would like to complete the same race, but I’m not sure I could do it. All mental, I know. Friday was a night of entertaining our daughters and their friends, which was entertaining for us. I loved driving them around listening to them sing at the top of their lungs in the back seat. It made my heart so happy. Really. I kind of teared up realizing these days would not last forever. One of our favorite basketball teams won on Saturday, we had family over for a soup bar Saturday evening, and hubby and I were able to watch a beautiful movie about music and neurology together. Sunday was spent getting ready for spring break.
When we return, my husband and I have decided it is time to buckle down TOGETHER, with our workouts and nutrition plan. Sure we both fully believe taking care of the body is only one important aspect to a balanced life, but we have always held separate goals and schedules. This time, we are going to go at it as a team. We even converted our Spartan registrations to team registrations – since we have another couple signing up with us. This will be fun and I am looking forward to how close we become (hopefully we won’t want to strangle one another ;) ) because of it.
I had a chit chat with my trainer. Throwing the Spartan training into the mix of training for a show makes things a bit challenge. So at this point, I am just taking that goal one day/week at a time. I would much rather train with my husband and work towards a common goal together, right now. I sense it is something we both need. But honestly, the tancious, bull-dog part of me does not want to let that goal, go. We'll see.
The end of this week ends the social media fast God placed on my heart to participate in. Honestly, it has been a great time for me.
So what brings me peace? Knowing I am living as I should, where God needs me to be; relying on His grace on a daily basis. Being myself, which according to my family and close friends, means being spunky, intelligent, faithful, kind, fun, caring, creative, funny and beautiful on the inside and out. Pursuing the dreams God places on my heart, regardless of whether it makes sense to others – or even myself! Living in the moment, letting go of the past, and being hopeful for the future. Making every minute count. Living with margin to take on the inevitable challenges and trials of life. Being joyful in moments when it doesn’t make sense. Eating and sleeping well. But mainly, constantly and continually remaining in communion with God, which can be done anytime, anywhere, regardless of circumstances.
Take care and have a great week J
