Sooooo… I haven’t blogged here in like a week. That might lead one to believe I’ve already fallen off the wagon less than 2 weeks into the New Year. One would be right.
It’s not my fault sounds really good here…. I got side tracked roughly 5 days ago by The Momastery and have been held up there ever since. My house stayed clean for about a week, I’m still flying by the seat of my pants for dinner each night, (despite the fact I did write down a list of 10 meals to make and bailed after 3), but I HAVE made it to the gym at least twice a week, so hey I’ve got that still going for me.
Click that link… then live there for a week like I have, but maybe stick with your goals too… the two don’t have to be mutually exclusive like they were for me.
Living there for the week has been WAY more cathartic than a clean house or perfectly planned meal calendar would have been for me, so I’m claiming some grace as I’m come off my blog bender. There are still MANY more archived messages I’ll continue to pour over as time allows, but I had to at least pop back in over here and let anyone that will listen know they need to get their hineys over there for some wisdom, mixed with grace and humility with a healthy dose of humor! I’m pretty much convinced she is my soul sister, and she is somehow able to channel my thoughts into hilarious posts for her blog.
This Sunday launches the start of our 2012 Fast, which will provide an awesome three week window to zero in on what God’s actually got planned out for the 2012 year, so that’s also been a rather large temptation to eat ALL things NOT Fast approved in my attempt to over do it and not miss them so much. I’m almost 100% sure this is not what you are supposed to do going into a fast…. Almost 100% sure.
I’m sure I’ll be commenting plenty on the status of the fast like I did last year, I’m still debating whether or not I’ll fast facebook again this time, it was pretty beneficial last year, so I’m leaning towards it, but oh how I’ll miss the world… But since God overcame the world, then maybe I should try too 🙂 At least I’ll have this place to meet any and all who might miss me in the FB stratosphere!
