Day 9 – Exercise? When?


     How do I fit everything into an already crammed schedule and still drink enough water, make good food choices (cook, shop, chew 20 times) and exercise? Somethings gotta give! In the past I always chose to let the healthy agenda items go by the wayside.


     I was on target today. My calorie budget was 1500. I actually got giddy when I saw the calorie total for my oatmeal this morning. Who knew? I snuck some exercise in today during lunch duty by actually playing Zim-Zam with the students. I knocked the heck out of the tennis ball during two lunches today. Had a wonderful dinner with a friend and then went for a moderate walk. We even tracked a bear for a while. Seeing those tracks got the dogs and us excited. So the big fret over adding exercise so far this week hasn’t happened. There is time during the day and I’ll find it. It doesn’t have to be a big production but I will up the intensity because I want to see what the slow steady progress I can make in a year.

What will I do tomorrow for FUN?

      Can’t tell you how many times exercise had to be auto corrected in this post. I really need to learn to spell exercise because I’m going to be doing a lot more of it.


  1. I consider myself to be pretty good at spelling, but there are always those words that I can never get right. Thank the Lord for autocorrect!

    I’m glad to read you got your exercise in. Tracking the bear sounds exciting. Thank goodness you didn’t find it!

  2. Shelli-
    I found your blog! I’ll have you know this is the very first blog I have ever read! I think this is pretty cool! Please know your family loves you and is praying for you! Some encouraging words from God’s Word as you start this journey…
    “This I recall to my mind,
    Therefore I have hope.
    Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
    Because His compassions fail not.
    They are new every morning;
    Great is your faithfulness.
    “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “Therefore I hope in Him!” -3-

    • Thanks Sis, See how many new things there are still to do at 50. 🙂 Sorry I couldn’t resist. In Him is the only way to rest in this new challenge. Thanks so much, Shelli ~3~

  3. That’s great that you got some exercise in!

    I’m still trying to figure out where you live. I’m convinced that it’s Alaska (not sure why I have that in my mind…maybe the picture in the banner, or the bear you tracked…).

      You found me. Good job. I was wondering when someone would but the clues together. Congrats again on being in the “2’s”
      Great work!
