A new leaf

I’ve been feeling lately that I can be doing SO much better than I am in a lot of different areas of my life. Starting on Sunday (as in a couple days ago), I decided I was going to do something about it instead of just thinking it.

I’ve made a goal to be more consistent with my scripture study and that will help me be a better seminary teacher. To help me with that, I’ve actually started the Young Women’s Personal Progress program. Since I’d be through the program it has changed, and I thought what a good way to keep me moving forward and goal oriented. I didn’t want to start with Faith, experience 1, but it really has been a great place to start.

I’ve also made a goal to exercise 3 times a week. My exercise of choice is yoga. I love the calm of it. I am using an online community called MyYogaOnline to help me. They have all kinds of videos of routines for me to follow so I never get bored of doing the same one over and over again. I can always just pick a different one.

I am planning on starting a running program with Adam, but I didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew to start. I want to stick with it, and starting to exercise 6 days a week (while good for me) is a sure fire way to make me stop. I’ll work up to it though.

I thought I would put these out there so others can see so that I might be held more accountable for what I’m doing. I need a little motivation to keep me on the path, so if you happen to remember I’m doing this, feel free to ask me about it.

  1. I am with ya on feeling like I could do better and am trying to plan my own mini life revolution. I’ve been thinking about it for about 3 weeks now and decided I just have to do it! This week it just isn’t going to happen (with chris roofing the house and all), but I’m trying to get things started.

    I want to check out the myyoga place! I’ve been going to the gym twice a week (started out as 4x but life gets in the way)and love yoga but get bored with the video I have. I love going to the gym b/c it’s a chance for me to just focus on me without having to answer random questions throughout my workout. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I thought about trying for the memorial marathon next may, but honestly, trying to homeschool on top of everything else… probably won’t happen.

    So I’m shooting for getting out of this bad food rut we’ve been in for the past few months (I wish healthy fresh cooking was a little more convenient.) and adding 3 days of yoga to my 2 day a week gym. I’ll build from there.

    I wish you so much luck and motivation with this! I’ll check back and see how things are going.:)


  2. I think its always a good idea to vocalize goals, otherwise its to easy to lose focus. Your goals are great and I’m sure you can do it!

    P.S. LOVE the new blog design! It looks great!


  3. Amy- Sounds like we’re in a similar place, except you’re a lot further than I am fitness wise. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with the homeschooling this year!

    Krystal- I totally agree with you about vocalizing goals. I had originally just written them down and discussed them with Adam, but I decided to share with more people (or everyone really) so I’m less likely to come up with an excuse to not do it.

    And Thanks about the blog design. I love it too. ๐Ÿ™‚
