Mommy Mondays: Motivated Me

Just another installment of Mommy Mondays. Okay, so it's only the second one. Still.

I just wanted to share a few things I have gotten motivated to do lately. Sort of all at once. And since I'm a mommy, it counts as "Mommy Monday."

1. I am training for a 5k and getting closer to that goal. I am running the Pumpkin Run in October. I am now able to run 30 minutes straight, with dog and baby along for the run/ride. It is very invigorating, and I feel so accomplished every day I do it.

2. I am now motivated to clean my floors. I used to sweep pretty regularly, but now that Holman scooches EVERYWHERE, it is apparent that sweeping is not quite adequate. When all of his shirts are covered in dog hair, dirt, and who knows what else, it screams out to mom "PLEASE CLEAN THE FLOORS!" I guess it is gross that I used to not clean them. I kind of wish I could spray some kid-safe cleaner onto Holman's belly and let him do it for me. Unfortunately, he tends not to cover the entirety of one area, as he is easily distracted by interesting noises coming from faraway rooms.

3. I am dieting. I did well with baby weight, and actually, I got it all off. But when I stopped nursing, it all mysteriously reappeared on my waistline. I've been dieting for three weeks, and I am feeling fabulous. And I'm not starving. It is a much better system than any diet I've ever tried.

4. I am motivated by what is going on at Highpoint Church lately. God is lighting a fire in our people. I am motivated to "get out of the boat" like Peter did-- to give everything I have to God and see what He does all around me. I am motivated to pray, to seek, to know Him more. This is my life's purpose: to know Him and love Him more every single day.

And right now, I'm not very motivated to go do laundry. But alas, the baby is sleeping, and it must be done. That is it for now. Stay tuned.
