Fit 4Faith

04 Apr

Another recent site I’ve stumbled upon (finding lots of those thanks to UBP11) is Julie’s Fit 4Faith series on Come Have a Peace.  Although her challenge just ended, I’ve decided to incorporate it into my own lifestyle because it’s a perfect fit.  šŸ™‚

To start off, here’s Julie’s 24 Point Self Check for Fit 4Faith and my answers.

  1. Do you often wake up and think, “I can’t wait to go to bed tonight” or “I hope I can take a nap”?   Sometimes
  2. When you hear how much water we should drink daily, do you count coffee, Diet Dr. Pepper šŸ˜‰ & tea?  Coffee yes, but I know it really shouldn’t
  3. Does your diet include all of the food groups, and not just in “shake” form?  Now it does, mostly anyway
  4. Do you find yourself eating often from the “fast food” food group?  Not so much anymore.  Non-GMO and Organic doesn’t mesh well with fast food.  LOL
  5. Would you describe your breathing as deep and even, short and tight, or panting and panicked? If you answered the 2nd or 3rd … go lay down! šŸ™‚  Somewhere in between all those.  It’s not deep, but it’s not short and panting either, except when I’m exercising
  6. When was the last time you had an hour to do something that rested your body, mind, and spirit?  Without having to deal with outside factors?  I don’t even remember.
  7. Look at your planner (do you use a planner?); when is the next time you see a time to rest? (You can’t go into 2012. šŸ™‚ )  My calendar doesn’t incorporate rest times
  8. How many times in a month do you go for a walk? Shopping doesn’t count. šŸ™‚  Does walking around at work half the day count?
  9. Have your tennis shoes lasted longer than two years? A decade?  My current pair is probably at least 6 months old. They only get worn evenings, Fridays, and weekends.
  10. Would you describe your posture as strong and straight or tense and tight? Relax … šŸ™‚  Slouched and really bad
  11.  Do you often eat while driving, standing up, or walking around (grazing)?  Not so much anymore. Again, that kind of eating doesn’t do well with our new food choices.
  12. Would someone watching you say your shoulders are more hunched over or pulled back?  hunched, definitively
  13. Do you spend most of your grocery shopping time in the inside or around the outside of the aisles?  outside aisles, and the shop in bulk aisle b/c that’s where they keep the honey and maple sugar and fresh ground peanut butter, and my seasonings and spices and flour
  14. Back to the water question … are you trying to count what you inadvertently drink in the shower? šŸ˜‰  nope
  15. When you go to the doctor for an annual exam and have to answer if you exercise, do you say something like, “My whole life is exercise!” (My doctor doesn’t accept this anymore.)  hahaha   no.  i just tell him i’m working on it.
  16. Have you been to the doctor for an annual exam?   not yet this year. 
  17. As you read God’s Word, do you let yourself reread passages, think, and reread again?  yes, but it’s not always intentional. sometimes i let myself get distracted and then i have to reread it anyway.
  18. When you pray, do you get up and feel refreshed?  usually yes, but i’m really bad about praying regularly
  19. Do you find yourself stuck in a chair long enough to need to apply new lipstick or warm up your coffee?  yup 
  20. How do you decide what you’re going to eat? Coupons? Leftovers? Cravings? Beat the kids to it?  depends on whats in the pantry. we’re working towards a meal plan but we’re still learning to shop organic and cook at home so it’s difficult some days.
  21. When you look in the mirror, do you ever wonder who that exhausted woman is looking back at you?  Sadly, yes.  Some days I think I look way too tired and worn to only be 37.
  22. Do you feel like you have to pray to God in morse code or short hand?  Sometimes
  23. After reading God’s Word, does it go in one ear and out the other, or does it linger in your mind and come back often? Depends on how much attention I’m giving to God when I read
  24. Is your idea of a well rounded meal accomplished by visiting the sample station at Sam’s Club?  Nope, but I don’t shop at Sam’s.  šŸ˜‰
