After listening to Ian S. Arden talk about using time wisely and hearing the bishop in my ward talk about staying busy with good things I have been thinking about what I spend my time on.
To say that I have been slacking when it comes to exercising would be a gross understatement... I did okay over the summer, but when I went back to work when school started I had less time. I kept thinking that after I got in a good routine and settled into this school year I'd have more time.
Guess what... That never happened! In fact the opposite happened--I got a fairly time intensive calling and had less time than before. Yet despite that I still managed time to watch TV.
I have decided that I need to cut out most of my TV watching. This past week I have watched substantially less than I am used to. This week is October break and I thought this would be the perfect time to start down the road to being fit again. 3 weeks ago I started doing yoga with a friend but that was only once a week. Yesterday I power walked to my brother's house (He lives 2 miles from me) and today I rode to my parents' house and back (14 miles). Last night I also decided to stop eating deep fried foods and sweets until Thanksgiving. I'll need a slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. Time to get healthy!
And you know what? I feel pretty great!

I watched this a couple days ago on a friend's blog. I didn't think too much of it at the time, but it keeps sneaking back into my mind. Take a look. Enjoy!
