The Anatomy of a Disciple is a great book. But, no amount of greatness can stop a college student from sleeping – especially when that college student was basically in class or work or travelling for 12 hours several days of the week.
So, I only read my book 5 days this week, but the days I didn’t read were ones I went immediately to sleep after hittin’ the hay. I usually don’t read books earlier in the day (except for my classes), so if I didn’t try to read before bed, it didn’t happen that day.
I learned from my attempt at starting my day by reading a devotional that I just don’t retain what I read in the morning before my gears are turning. And I learned from my week of writing down good things that I really enjoy reflecting and turning my brain away from work and school before bed.
Side note: I’m really happy to make these connections! I’ve wrote it before, but that’s really why I’m doing this resolution. I want to figure out what is working and what isn’t.
This next week I will be going back to a morning goal. I’m gonna see how many squats I can do in a row by next Saturday morning! I’ll be keeping track of how many I do each day and how my body feels.
Finally, Spring Break starts after this week!! Woo hoo! I can’t wait to work at my other job! I know that sounds sad, but I’ll be home, I like my coworkers, and they’re gonna give me money for my labor, so I think it’s a fair trade.
(Sorry for another short blog, folks! I’m not going to blather on and bore you, so this is all you get this week. I have a feeling I’ll have a lot to say about the squats… See you next week!)
If you’d like to see the complete list of 52 things I’m accomplishing this year, click here to check out my first blog! For now, here’s what I’ve done and what’s to come in the next few weeks:
Last week: Read Anatomy of a Disciple for 15-ish minutes each day.
This week: Start each morning with squats and increase them each day. Who knows? Maybe you’ll notice a difference after a week.
Next week: Learn about and try graphic design for at least 30 minutes each day. You know you need to figure it out for your future job.
