Yep, time to take these out again.
Alright, just wanted to give a quick update so I have at least two posts this week. My exercise is going to get a bit more regular, my brother has become a slave driver! I had already exercised three times this week, so I was going to take the day off, low and behold my brother was all hyped up about exercising! So we did weight lifting and went for an uphill run. He's very excited about getting fit now and has an exercise plan, he asked me if I wanted to do it with him, so I said yes. This ought to be interesting, but it'll be nice to have an exercise buddy. Plus, my dad got my bike up and running, so I have a lot of different ways I can be exercising. There's walking, cycling, weight lifting, strength training exercises, yoga, and weighted hula hooping as legitimate options.Now that it's finally stopped raining, I can go outside and actually havesome fun with my exercise instead of sitting around wondering what I can do. In my health class for school, I've been learning about aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Aerobic exercises, like walking, oxygenates your muscles. While anaerobic exercise, like weight lifting, doesn't. The lack of oxygen to the muscles is part of what makes them sore. Eventually muscles will die off without oxygen, the best exercise is a combination of both aerobic and anaerobic. So that's what I'm going to try to do. Ok, yes, I am done talking about exercise for now. My eating hasn't been the best these last few days, I've had more carbs than I probably should have, and have slipped into eating larger portions again. I'm struggling with that and ask for prayer. Also, I've not been sleeping very well. My throat dries out in the middle of the night, then it's hard to get back to sleep. For that I'm going to try putting a warm washcloth over my face before I fall asleep. Maybe that will help. Well, that's all for me, I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. I LOVE your honesty. I can so relate. I'll be praying regarding your eating. One thing I do is ask God to help me realize when I'm satisfied physically and to stop eating. I'll pray the same for you as it is helping me.
