just got home from the gym.
i seriously had to make myself go.
but now, i am so glad i did.
ellipitical for 30 minutes.
treadmill (walk/jogging) for 15.
my goal is to start running on the treadmill.
i would love to be one of those people that
can run....and run...and run... (like Brionne).

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday!
Happy Birthday Ms. Beth!

oh, and this is random...
did you know that Sonic has a happy hour from 2-4pm and
you can get drinks half off?
if you have never had a Sonic Diet Coke with Vanilla
run to your nearest Sonic to try one!
They are yummy!
Alan is hooked as well!

I am really appreciative of Alan.
He got my oil changed today.
He took my car to get the transmission serviced.
He pays the bills.
He takes out the trash.
He takes care of me.
He makes his own appointments.
He calls me just to say he loves me!
I was talking with a co-worker of mine,
and she was telling me about the stress her husband
adds to her life. I just can't imagine that!
Alan is a stress-reliever in more ways that one. ;)
So thankful that God has allowed me to do life with him!

And Mondays...they just stink sometimes.
But I am so thankful for my job (most days).
Attitude really is everything.
While I don't share the same morals
as most of my co-workers, we can laugh and have a good time.

And now a bit on more and less...
I have been trying to live with less.

Less trips to Hobby Lobby...
Less trips to Target...
Less trips to the vending machine for D.C...
Less eating out...
Less wasting time...
Less wasteful spending...
Less traveling...

I have been doing this for several reasons...
things are costing more (gas, groceries, D.C.).
i have been wasting lots of time.
i have been wasting lots of money.

God calls us to be faithful stewards of our (His) money,
but also our time too.

I have just felt convicted about being so wasteful.

The neat thing is...

I have spent more time at home.
We have spent less money.
We have spent more time together
I have been drinking less D.C. (I'm addicted).
I have been getting so much more done.
I have been going to the gym 6 days a week for 7 weeks.
Taking care of our bodies as they are temples is so important.
And it is something that I have not been taking so seriously.

It's all about balance.
Sometimes I get off balance.
It is a struggle for me because I am an all or nothing person.

How is your balance?
Are you being a faithful steward?

And because I don't like posting without a picture...
a picture of our phone.
Oh how I love talking on it...

peace out.
