A lot of nights, I look back at my day, and am disgusted with how I spend my day. I "didn't have time" to exercise or read my Bible or play a game with my kids, but I did win a few computer games and read about all the things other people are doing in their houses.
I want my daily life to reflect what is the most important to me. I decided there were 3 things I want to have in each day:
1. Some time with God
2. Something active, which has to include my back exercises
3. Intentionally connecting with each person in my family
I am really good at feeling guilty about all the things I should be doing. All the things I think I should be doing overwhelm me so I don't do anything. I needed to create an achievable goal. "Lose weight" is too big and vague. Same with "keep the house cleaner" or "do a better job with my kids."
This I can do. If I do these three things, I can be okay with my day. Hopefully I'll get something clean in the house and make healthy food choices, but that will just be icing on the cake.
