I love to laugh, ha ha ha ha, loud and long and clear. If it isn’t obvious yet then you haven’t been here long enough. It has been proven that laughter is one of the best medicines around. Take that essential oils. I have […]

Being a human can be stressful. Let’s face reality here folks. We have become so obsessed with keeping up with people who are horrible influences on our youth and less time on what’s important. In the few weeks since I have wrote, my head has been spinning. For both good and bad reasons. I’ve been focused on trying to get more done around my house and spending precious time with my family. I try and keep the TV off as much as possible and disconnect my phone from the internet so I have less temptations to check Facebook.
I wake up before the rest of my family and greet the day with a scowl. I will never be a morning person, but you hit me up in the middle of the day after I’ve had a good lunch and I’m pretty great to be around. Somehow I manage to get some clothes on and will either do some yoga or go running. Lunatic me decided to train to do a marathon by the end of the year. I hate running. I hate exercise. I hate that I thought this was a good idea.
Don’t think this is a new year new me post. Far from! The whole idea to start exercising came from not wanting to have surgery for my hernia or a hysterectomy down the road. Long time readers know the story of how I didn’t have a glamorous birthing experience with Audrey and if you don’t, have a laugh. I spent nearly 6 months going to physical therapy afterwards because I was in constant pain. It helped me tremendously but my hernia has been sitting shotgun for nearly three years now.
Still trying to avoid surgery for either, I’m forcing myself to get fit and healthy. Oh geeze is it awful. People talk about the endorphins. I’d rather drink a big gulp and eat a bag of Doritos on my couch and be happy that way. But alas, that will only make my pant size grow and I know Jake thinks I shop too much already.
I’ve been using my time for exercise to clear my head. I crank up the tunes and just go. This is my time to be alone and not be concerned with the needs of family and friends. Sometimes I feel compelled to have deep conversations with God and other times I just tell him a parenting joke I’m thinking of posting on Facebook.
It’s truly amazing what even 15 minutes outside of my house can do for me. Audrey has even fallen in love with yoga and compelled me to soul search on becoming a child yoga instructor. But for now, I will continue my run with the Lord and my dog and child sticking their bad breath in my face during yoga.
