I really don’t know what to say. Today is the last day of the fast. I ate something today I shouldn’t have considering the fast actually ends at 6am tomorrow. I didn’t even feel convicted for doing it. I wonder was I led to be finished or if I talked myself into it. After I ate my husband informed me he was happy I was eating again. He’s been concerned about the amount of weight I’ve lost. But he didn’t want to mention his concern because he knew I was doing this fast for spiritual reasons. If that’s the case, I’m really glad my mother hasn’t seen me in 3 weeks. She’d be really upset. I’m down 2 dress sizes and I was only a size 6 to begin with.
I’ve set new intentions to begin tomorrow. An exercise in gratitude and in an exercise in discipline. I’m beginning the first of the final 3 courses in my graduate program tomorrow. And today I purchased a couple of pairs of yoga shorts to begin the hot yoga classes. My intention once I get a handle on my course work this week is to exercise 3 hours a week. The hot yoga classes are 90 minutes long. There is no way I can pretend I’ll be willing and able to do that more than once a week. The other 90 minutes will be broken up into 3 thirty minute full body workouts during the week immediately after work. I’ll continue to get my cardio by walking around the site at work. I can easily get 30 minutes and probably closer to 60 minutes of walking during the day. The campus is pretty large.
I never really detailed my intentions for 2013. I have a few. And most of them will be addressed in spin-off blogs…maybe. So, for 2013 I intend the the following:
- To strengthen my commitment to and walk with God.
- To reduce our debt by 20%.
- To complete my graduate degree.
- To improve my health by increasing my fitness level and living a more holistic lifestyle.
- To establish and grow an online business
- To lead a more organized life.
The action plans for those intentions will be developed as part of my discipline exercise.
My plate and calendar is officially full. Therefore, I won’t add anything else to it until after I finish school in July or August. Day 21 is done.
