Finding a Balance
Since I started this blog I have been doing a lot of reading, both because I enjoy it and because in my conception of how the blog would be I wanted to be able to post about a book almost every day. In making time to read I took time away from some other things. I don't miss watching TV much, I still watch a few things but nowhere near as much as I used to. That trade I don't mind at all. The trade I need to reevaluate though is my time for fitness and exercise. Over the summer I was very goal oriented and made sure I worked out every day at least once, I set time goals and distance goals for myself each week and felt really good physcically. Since the end of August I kind of stepped away from that and I can tell in both my energy level and how my clothes are fitting that it is time to make this a priority again. I will miss the extra reading time, but in the long haul I believe that finding a balance will enhance my life and give me more energy to find the time to read. Now I have to decide if I am going to use this as a resolution for the new year or just think of it as a life chance.
