Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the nicer weather. I cannot wait to spend more and more time outside. How did everyone’s brackets do for March Madness? I actually had Virginia winning one of them so at least I didn’t get last; and I beat my husband so that was a win in my mind. It’s also Masters week for all of you golf lovers. My golfer this weekend is Justin Rose, so that’s who I routing for.
We are supposed to have some weather this week. So if it snows, it will be the 2nd snow on a robin’s back. You know how the saying goes – so I guess 1 more snow then.
Let’s get down to it!
Song of the Week:
The Worst Kind
Tim Hicks (feat. Lindsay Ell)
I have never heard of this guy, but I liked this song. Take a listen.
What makes you feel inadequate?:
Nothing makes me feel more inadequate than not know what I am talking about. Education and tapping resources has been my way around this world. I will recite information until it is engraved in my brain. I like to know what I am talking about and sound smart. Doesn’t everyone?
Bible Verse of the Week:
I think we all react to the potential situations and outcomes before we really see everything unfold. I have started to challenge myself in reacting at the right time.
What is your favorite song to sing in the shower?:
I don’t usually sing in the shower, but when I do, it’s usually “Unfaithful” by Rihanna. This just so happens this is my jam in my car. I have a few of jam songs, but this one is pretty popular on my list.
The funny thing is, I don’t really like Rihanna at all.
Quote of the Week:
I fully believe anyone can pick up a bible, flip to any page, and find the message God intended for them at that time. There is always something relatable. Sometimes I pray to God for him to show me what I need. I, then, flip to a page, and every single time, I have found my message – my need.
What is your greatest source of motivation?:
Honestly, I love watching other’s before and after pictures come up on my media. I always think, “yeah that could be me some day”. I also think the scale is a pretty good motivator, but I often avoid it.
When I was a member at a gym down in Ames, I was the healthiest and in the best shape of my life. I got down to my sophomore weight in high school. The thing is, I had to limit myself when it came to my weigh-in’s because I became obsessed with the numbers. They had a scale that would spit out a piece of paper with a lot of different numbers on it. I taped them in my journal and highlighted them with new goals for the week.
And now I don’t have that kind of gym anywhere near me, and I don’t have much motivation. I’m hoping when I can be outside more, that will help me out.
That’s what I have for you all today! Enjoy your weathery Wednesday. Did you see what I did there? hah
Have a great weekend.
