What I learned this week...




1.) Three doctor's visits in two weeks is NOT a good thing!

2.) It is miserable to have the flu and mono at the same time... ask Michael.

3.) It is hard to try to keep the other kids away from the sick one all of the time!

4.) Family is amazing, loving, kind, eager to help if I would just simply ask for what I need.

5.) Ernie is my rock when I am weary, anxious and even downright mean.

6.) I'm thinking I might need to research or find a book or cd or transcript or something where Joyce Meyer talks about approval addiction that Michele mentioned in a comment. I am thinking that fits me to a T.

7.) Midnight to 2AM when up with a wide awake, but happy baby, is a great time to do some deep thinking and self examination.

8.) It is possible to only sleep for 3 hours and get up and make it to Body Combat, even though I stumbled in 20 minutes late this morning!

9.) It doesn't kill me to go to the front of the room for Body Combat when all of the back spots are taken. Not too long ago, I would have looked in the window and settled for the treadmill instead of going into the class and working out in the front.

10.) Ernie mentioned I'm more self confident after I've been to the gym, so I guess it's not just the way I feel, he can see it. That alone is worth going whether I'm dropping weight quickly or not!

11.) Somethings(people) simply are not the way they appear.

This month has been packed full of lessons in my life. I'm praying March will be some easier, less serious lessons! To see what others have learned this week, check out the carnival at Musings of a Housewife!

Rough week huh? I'm sorry. At least you came away with some good lessons right?

Oh, and I second that whole confidence when you're working out thing. Works like a charm!

Here's to better days next week!

Sometimes we have to go through the tough parts in life to reach what God wants for us in the long run. Girl I'm learning that one too! Love you, you're doing great.

Eeeeeek! I HATE being front of an exercise class!!!

Wendy said...

I hope that the mono and flu don't hit everyone in your home! Wow, that's just not fun...

A big congrats to Bella for walking! Are you able to keep up with her now?

I SO would be the person skipping the class and going straight for the treadmill in the back of the gym. I would die a thousand tiny deaths being in front of the class. And yes, I'm melodramatic.

The flu AND mono?! How awful!!

And I SO need to get back to exercising.

So funny. I just had a thought for a post and then I came to your blog and there it was (basically). I may have to steel that light bulb thingy. Glad you stopped by and that you commented specifically on the stars. I've been unsure about them since most decorators use the 'odd number rule'. Have a great day. :)

Joyce Meyers Approval Addiction was a great book! I read it maybe 3 or 4 years ago. I would have read it more times than that but I lost it in a fire! It helped me ALOT!!
