good health

I don't know about you, but when I'm around my family (which never seems often enough) I feel inspired to be better. I absolutely LOVE seeing my parents be Grandma & Grandpa to Brooks and his cousins...and I got to see a lot of it at our family reunion we just got back from. They work hard to stay healthy & fit so that they can get down and really play with all of their grandkids...and my parents never miss an opportunity to apply gospel principles when interacting with the kids. They're wonderful examples of what I want to be when Adam and I "grow up" ;)
{ My Mom & Dad, and Grandma Smith, with all the grandkids }

On the drive home yesterday...in between my naps while Adam drove...I thought about how I can improve my health. Both my physical and spiritual health. I love the scriptures and I enjoy a good workout...but I don't think I'm as dedicated to either one of those as I should be. I know that if I start my day with reading the scriptures I'll get the boost I need to be a loving mother for Brooks and a thoughtful wife for Adam. I know that scriptures have power and I know that they are a guiding light in my life. Then, getting a solid workout in will help me keep my energy up to play with my Little B...and hopefully help me keep my hott-smokin'-wife-bod for Adam (kidding!...inside joke from college). So, as a little something to keep me on track and hold me accountable...I've decided that at the end of every post, I'll record what I did that day to strengthen my spiritual health and my physical health.

*Cheers* to good health, self-improvement,
and working hard to be the best at what you love (for me, being a wife and mother)!

Haley, this is such a great idea! I truly believe that in order for us to take care of ourselves and achieve optimal wellness we have to take care of our WHOLE selves: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I'm with you on reading scriptures and being physically active. I know that when I read my scriptures in the morning and workout when Adam gets home I feel so good about myself = mommy's happy = everyone's happy.

so glad you had a fun trip! hope you post lots of pics :)

Good thought! I like your idea of adding your accomplishments at the end of the post. It's a good way to keep up positive energy and motivation.

I hate to say that most of my family is my role model in the sense that they're the opposite of what I want to be. :( At least that gives me some direction in what I would rather be as a person.

That's why I like blogs like yours so much because they give me inspiration for the future.

Good luck with your spiritual and physical endeavors!
