Healthy Soul, Healthy Body


Well, it’s back to the grind friends, and I’m just now waking up.

Matt successfully woke himself up bright and early this morning at 6:10 for a 15 minute jog and walk before showering, getting breakfast, and reading the good Word. I was so shocked that he actually got up shortly after 6am that I almost didn’t let him go outside… I wasn’t convinced he wasn’t just sleep walking and I was afraid he wouldn’t come back.

But he did!

The weekend was full and fun for the Fischers, but went by too quickly (as always right?).

You won’t hear any complaining from me though; my mom and little sister came up to visit and we had a great time!

Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures, so I have no colorful visual aids to share…just colorful words.

We ate at Cheesecake Factory (chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake anyone?), saw The Help (which was soooo good!), went to the beach for a day (sun, corn dogs, and seafood!), and ended the weekend by taking them to our new church and sending them off with a home cooked meal.

I am so thankful for good family. There are few sweet blessings quite like it.

What did you do this weekend?

Did you get in any challenging workouts or yoga classes?

Sunday night I did a yoga video by Jillian Michaels and really enjoyed it. Although I may have fallen on my face while trying the crow pose. Much practice will be needed.

I noticed I have to really focus on engaging my core the whole time, otherwise my motions get sloppy and the workout is not as tough. Overall, I love how yoga makes my body feel and I am looking forward to learning more and increasing my balance… by a lot.

Tonight I’m hitting the ground running with another Insanity video; literally. He makes us run in place way too much. Say a prayer for me around 6:00. Thanks.

More important than fun weekends and a healthy body, is a healthy soul. Let us set our gaze on the One who gives us life and gives it to the fullest as we begin this week.

“May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. Set a guard over my mouth Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in the wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies…. But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord; in you I take refuge.” Psalm 141: 2-4, 8.
