Bloggers Block... oppose to writers block. I know I have been a terrible blogger. I am trying to get back in the swing of things. I have a few topics I am going to write about in the near future. Also, I had to order a part for my camera so it will be up and running again soon! Just to update you on what is going on with me...I joined Jackson Sports & Fitness and I LOVE it. The exercise classes in the evenings are actually addicting. Not only do I feel better when I work out, but it has been a great way to meet new people. The Body Sculpting and Step and Strike classes are a challenging. Body Sculpting includes lunges, squats and weight lifting. Step and Strike is a mixture of cardio, kick boxing, weights, and tons of sweat!!! Both are challenging for me but I love it. I also have been taking Pilates and Yoga. In both classes the room is dark except for a little 'soft' lamp light. We stretch our bodies into positions I did not think possible (some are STILL not possible for me). It is a great way to relax after a long day or to stretch after Step and Strike. Having a gym membership has taken up a lot of my time in the evenings, so I have to adjust my schedule so that I can still get everything done. I am a person who needs structure and a plan or I will just waste all my time, so I try to plan nearly every minute of my day. I would love it if you would pray that I would be better at prioritizing my time and more disciplined in reading. I realized this morning that I am in front of a computer for almost 10 hours a day, five days a week. Some of this cannot be avoided because I work behind a desk for 9 hours a day, but this could explain why I am not so productive in other areas and why I am getting a headache on almost a daily basis (which will be addressed with an eye doctor this afternoon). Thanks for reading and for praying!

I miss your blogging and I miss you even more.

But I understand the shifting schedules and priorities all too well. I will pray that the Lord would help us to love the things that he loves, even as we think through our days.

I'm glad you're loving the gym so much! I finally updated my blog this morning too! Later, I'm going to post the pictures we took of you and the kids the other night.
