Staying Pumped Up

A couple of weeks ago I decided to jump up my game and make some changes in my life. I wanted to better myself, physically, spiritually, and, over-all, emotionally. I've started doing a few things,

I'm serving others. I am trying hard to find little things to do for others, be it my friends, family, or strangers. And it has been a lot of fun :) I've gone on splits with the sister missionaries--a WONDERFUL experience that I LOVED and intend to do again soon!!

I'm working out. I have worked the past two weeks at just trying to do SOMETHING every day. For the most part, I have accomplished this. I am doing lunges, scissor kicks, push ups and planks at least , and recently I've been going on walks with a few friends and our strollers.

I'm praying daily. Actually, our how family has been having family prayers every night. And the best part? Its mostly because of Aiden. He is SO good at reminding us to have prayers every night and he is SO cute when we almost walk out of his room without saying them. "WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT! (Hands flailing about until we turn around) Prayer?"

I'm putting my kids first. Play dates with friends AND play dates with Mommy and Daddy. TK and I have been trying really hard to give them more one-on-one time and more activities and adventures. Aiden has become quite the zombie hunter/super hero and Eva just talks our ears off!! :)

I'm blogging again. It may not be much, and to some, its probably pointless, but for me, its as close to journaling as I get and I want to follow the wonderful example that my mom set for me as best as I can. Its great to be able to look back and see what I did years ago or see when my kids hit their milestones (P.S. Eva laughed for the first time on Tuesday! SO cute!!)

I'm flossing! Ha, I know, I know, I am horrible. But seriously, I have never been in a routine of flossing.... I just... haven't. So for about 3 weeks now, I have been flossing EVERY day. I think I missed one. I'm quite proud of this.

So yes, just little things, here and there, but I'm using my time more wisely. Aka. less TV time for me :) But its worth it and I am loving it. Now just to keep it all up!! So that I can add more improvements to it... Hopefully I can start working on my genealogy.. and soon I'll be working a couple of days a week.. Its crazy to think of where I am in my life right now, but I love where I am going and am quite proud of what I've already accomplished!
