Grand Canyon Habits

Blogging is not and has never been "my thing". If you look on my page, you will see that my last blog post was over 2 and a half years ago as part of another challenge. I just never think that what I have to say is that earth shattering or of interest to busy people.
But here I am again blogging as part of a challenge! I am to write about a habit that I want to develop. I have already begun a habit that seems quite valuable to me, and that is exercising first thing in the morning. Coming back from America at the beginning of the year (10 days ago), I was quite jet lagged. Waking at 4 and not able to get back to sleep. The first night it happened, I got up and did e-mail. Nice-you are up at the same time as Americans are posting. But the second night (morning), I decided to put the extra time to good use and got out my Nordic walking poles and walked on the soccer field. Perfect-you get your exercise in before the day's schedule fills up with other stuff, you leave for work totally prepared, and you have some quiet time with the Lord while looking at the China Sea and stars in the skies (still quite dark).
We still have 2 weigh ins, but my losses so far have been nominal. To lose my 5%, I need to lose 2# both of those weeks. That is doable, but I will have to either reduce the food or up the exercise minutes to do it since so far, the losses have been 1-1.5# a week (when using my Japanese scale). Pray for me!
