Fit Mommy Friday: Excuses, Excuses


encouraging each other to care well for the bodies God has given us

by being active, eating wisely, and relaxing adequately

Well, my energy finally came back on Tuesday afternoon and, rather than waste it on exercising, I did groceries. On Wednesday Miss 10 dragged me outside to see a brand new bridge over a tiny stream, and other than that I’ve been taking it easy, homeschooling, and preparing for the homeschooling conference.  I have not yet bought a new pedometer and don’t even know my step counts for the week, other than that they are very low.

All that to say: exercise was not my focus this week.

On the other hand, I’m making yoghurt constantly and we eat it every day.  We’re eating well and avoiding sweets most of the time.

Everyone else in the family has also been feeling tired and sleeping more than usual, so it’s not just me.  But the sore throats in this cold are easy to conquer:  we simply gargle with concentrated lemon juice and then the pain is gone.

I hope your week involved more exercise than mine did!

    Glad you got your energy back. I can still get really tired easily, but they say that’s normal after a surgery. I did exercise today, first time in three weeks. It felt so good. I’ll be doing some tomorrow too. 🙂

    I’m sorry you’ve been sick. Awesome that you took it easy to regain your strength and get ready for the conference. Have fun!

  3. Annie Kate says:

    Good for you, JoAnn! I’m glad you’re recovering so well.

    Thanks, Brianna, I did have a great time at the conference, and I was able to help some moms out. What a blessing! But it’s so good to be able to focus on my home and homeschool duties again.
