YAY... Ooops!

I'm not Catholic, so imagine my surprise when I finished my 40 days of giving stuff up for Lent and then my co-workers tell me that Lent isn't over until Sunday! What?! I counted! I started on Ash Wednesday and counted 40 days... that ending was yesterday... I was feeling quite proud of my accomplishment and Boom! In my face! Oh well, I'm LDS not Catholic... no biggie. I'll take the 40 days I finished already and run with them! :) I'm proud to say, I did pretty well! My prayers have been AWESOME... I remember night, but have forgotten about 3 times in the morning. Scripture reading was forgotten  neglected about the same amount of times... 3.  Considering I wasn't really putting effort into any of it at all I have vastly improved.  Got my Temple Recommend renewed at church Sunday and decided I need to make the effort to go a LOT more!!  So, I  made a goal of 1/mo.  I have next Thursday off so I am making an appointment and GOING!  (Anyone is welcome to tag along-Newport @ 10AM).  I'm still working on my last Ensign for 2010, but am almost done.  I've never felt so accomplished spiritually! (OK, on my mission I was of course... but you have all the time in the world for spiritual matters!)
Anyhow, Now that spiritual aspects are going well, it's time to pick up on the physical... EXERCISE!  Ugh!  I WILL start sometime in the next 2 weeks! :)  I give myself plenty of time to procrastinate and try to get in the mood!  Something needs to be done.  I'll continue to keep you all updated!


Only 6 more days and I am back on FB!! Whoo-Hoo! I've missed it, but I definitely have realized that I don't need it all that bad! I do have to admit that I was bad once and did get on there last week. I only looked at my profile to see if a friend had written in regards to me submitting one of her cake creations to the blogspot CakeWrecks.com. One of her cakes made it!! I thought that was worthy of breaking it once to tell her about it! Other than that, I have been pretty good!

I'm doing great with the Ensign/scripture reading and thankfulness journal entries. I believe I have only missed 2 days of reading and I am 5 Ensign articles away from being in 2011 Ensigns! YAY! I'm positive that I'll keep up all my good habits after Lent is over... They say, 21 days of doing something and it becomes a habit... I think 40 would cement it!

On another note I am totally enjoying my freshly installed ceiling fan! It got up there just in time for the warmer weather!

Anyway, I will give a final report next Monday when Lent is officially over! :)
