Exercise, Bacon and the Proverbs 31 Woman

My thoughts while exercising

My thoughts while exercising

I started one of my goals for the year this week…exercising. Now I know that traditionally I should have started in January but…well…I have no excuse. Exercising is not one of my favorite things to start. I am fine once I get started and am always glad for having done so afterward…the getting started part is just hard. Why? Because I have to get out of bed before everyone else…I really like to sleep…sigh. 

Truth is I may have not got around to exercising at all if it wasn’t for my friend who is about to start a Proverbs 31 study. I would love to go to her study but my priorities and schedule don’t always mix with my wants. So I decided to read about the noble Proverbs 31 woman. She is amazing and I fall very short of her example…like…not even on the wagon. Verse fifteen says she gets up while it is still dark. She is prepared to take care of her family…this woman has her priorities straight. After reading that line I told Jesus it would have hurt a lot less if He had hit me with an iron skillet…

I’ve been struggling on working exercise into my day…well…struggle would imply some kind of actual attempt that failed. So…I’ve thought about working exercise into my day but have found it hard to find a good consistent time. Excuses, excuses, excuses… So after pouting about getting up early with Jesus for a few days I managed to get up early this week and exercise, shower, and have coffee with the Word all before my household woke and needed me. The three days I managed to accomplish this were really good days.
