Day One, Not Hard But Weird

Day one, while much easier than I anticipated, was weird. So many of my daily routines involve social media so I kept finding myself picking up my phone to hop onto Facebook or Instagram only to ask myself: does anyone really know what my plans are for the day? Do they even really care? 

I didn't timelapse my workout to share in my stories, but you know what? I still worked out! And I still checked in with the virtual fitness group I run to share with my team what I accomplished.

Later that day at the beach, there were moments I would think, 'Oh, this would be a cute story or post,' and just as quickly I was reminded that I didn't need to do that. And that's ok. Instead, I felt fully present, capturing a few photos to have and share here, but otherwise, I was content watching my kiddos, playing with them, soaking up the sun, and enjoying our beautiful life on Maui.

In the evening, while I washed the dishes, instead of catching up with some vloggers or Facebook, I listened to the latest episode on the Risen Motherhood Podcast. And after the boys went to bed instead of mindlessly scrolling my feed I found a book to download on the Libby App and spent the evening reading.

My phone says I was actively using it for 1:46 minutes, which is down 72% from last week. Almost a half-hour of that was spent texting a few friends more than I usually do, while 24 minutes was spent on my camera or photos, 25 minutes on websites (I was looking for recipes for dinner last night, which ended up being BBQ pulled pork sliders on homemade rolls) and a few minutes here and there on other apps.

I'm not really sure why I'm telling you all of this, other than to let you know it's doable. I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything. Rather, I just had to adjust my daily routine. We'll see if day two goes as smoothly ;-)

In other news, my two #10 cans of pumpkin puree just came! Tell me your favorite pumpkin recipes in the comments because I'll be making ALL things pumpkin as soon as it's cooler out!

Filled with Hope,
