The Start Experiment: Day Two

Today was a success! I accomplished all of my goals for the day, plus some that I added in the moment.

I still need to work on being more prepared and eating a more filling meal in the morning so that I’m not super hungry by 10am.

I also need to work on going to bed earlier (note the time of this post!) so that I can get up earlier without it being painful. 🙂

Today’s verse was Hebrews 12:11 —

I’m going to write these daily verses on index cards so that I can carry them in my purse. This will give me easily accessible truth with which to combat the “voices” that try to bring me down (or when ice cream is calling my name).

I spent a lot of time today cleaning/finally decorating/organizing my house–something I’ve been known to procrastinate about. I worked up quite a sweat doing it, which was an added bonus! I need to Start focusing and stop procrastinating on the little things in life, like cleaning the hardwood floors. 🙂

I will be starting to read a book on Spiritual Disciplines that our church leadership team is going through together (funny timing, isn’t it? 🙂 ) and that will only help me in this process, I believe.

This is exciting. Discipline is NOT fun, but I know that the fruit that will be produced from my disciplined life will far exceed anything I will be “giving up” long-term. 🙂
