Did it!

Its been 13 years since I really would say I've consistently exercised. Today I started my new routine and it started with 45 minutes of exercising. Followed by 30 minutes of my 'foundation.' It feels so great to start developing a routine. I've always pretty much flopped when it came to creating a routine for myself or my family. I've always just winged it and not thought much past that. Everything usually got done, but I had a lot more free time to do it in. Now with homeschooling I don't have that luxury and am ready to take control of my life.

I am bound and determined to create what I am going to call my 'default family routine.' Exactly what should be included in my 'default routine' is still coming to me, and it is SO EXCITING to see that routine being created. I don't know if its because I am getting older, wiser, or less lazy, but I 100% prefer the take charge approach to life vs. my old way of kind of just letting things happen. My old way leaves a lot to be desired, and lots of time I didn't get the most important things done because I got distracted by the good things and didn't have a plan. Here is to planning and a new start!
