Aren't they beautiful?! They were more than half off! :D I love them! And I can't wait to use them! And I want to use them as much as possible, which is kind of the point! :)
In other news, I kind of attacked my room today. In a good way. :) I moved my bed to clear out some floor space, cleaned out one entire closet, moved some other stuff from my room into the closet, took some stuff to Salvation Army, my aunt, and storage. (With some help from my mom. ;) Anyways, it feels really good! It is far from done, but for now, I am proud of myself and what I accomplished today. Happy Sunday! :)
Tomorrow I plan on getting my mom's bike tires aired up so that I might be able to go for a bike ride while the weather is still nice. And if the weather turns bad sooner than that, well, I still haven't gone snowshoeing yet this season. :)
Today I heard a couple of things that really resonated with me. The first was, in order to have the things we want, we have to feed them. And the second was you get out of something what you put into it. This applies to all areas of our lives, whether it be spiritual, relationships, school, jobs, and yes, our health and fitness. I want to do a better job of really cultivating the things that I want to grow in all of these areas. This is why I finally quit Facebook this year. It wasn't meaningful or fulfilling to me. I got nothing out of it and it kind of became a time suck. I am using the time to do more meaningful, energy-reviving, and fun things to me like my crafts or reading or writing this blog. And I really feel like this was the right thing for me to do. I know that some people love Facebook and I am not bashing it. It can be a great tool if used wisely. However, it is just not for me at this point in my life, I am at peace with my decision and am loving life without it.
Also yesterday, I read on a blog that "It's actually by doing the things a lean, strong, and healthy person does that you BECOME lean, strong, and healthy." Wow! So true! I feel like I am taking steps in the right direction and am looking forward to all that these steps bring me. Sometimes it is hard to see any progress, but when I take a step back and look at all that I have accomplished since June, I see a lot of change in my life! And whether it takes me 1 year or 10 years, I am going to get to where I want to be eventually. And I am definitely going to enjoy the journey, because otherwise, it isn't worth it. :)
