I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

No more caffeine...Again ;)

My Children told me that I should give up coffee for Lent. I looked at them with a look of (sure if you want a grumpy mommy for 40 days). Then I remembered how amazing I felt in December when I kicked the habit and how I've become a little more moody and dependent on my caffeine fix since starting again on the cruise.

FINE! I'll do it. What better way than to PRACTICALLY show my reliance on God (because I know I'll need it every morning). If I want to be a Fit Mom for my kids then I need to show them in practical ways by EXAMPLE. This goes for spiritual as well as for physical things.

So here I go again... no coffee for me until Easter morning. If it brings me closer to God every day than I'm really o.k with that.

Fit Mind Body and Spirit right? Oh Pray for me ;)

YEAH for you!!! You can do this and feel great about it! There is nothing to stop you. I work at a coffee shop and know how incredibly expensive coffee is - it's better to just kick the habit for good! Way to go!

God bless you! I have done the no caffeine route, only not for Lent. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers for the next few days!
