Group Number Two :D

Well, good morning to everyone!!!!!!

The second group arrived on Saturday and we’ve already had a great time! Yesterday there was an activity time for the children of the community, and about 100 kids showed up! It was awesome!!!!! In this group, there are 5 graduating seniors and 5 adults. Its been really nice to be able to hang out with some people who are closer to my age!!!!

Personally, I’ve been on a major emotional roller coaster the past week, mostly because of stress, I think. My hope is that I’ll stabilize a little bit more this week because I won’t be going out early in the morning to work with the group as much….we’ll mostly see each other at dinner. The on;y downside to this is that I actually have to do my schoolwork! 😛 Its been really nice to be able to take a week off! hahahaha

Sorry for the absence of pictures…I haven’t been taking any because I keep on leaving my SD card in my laptop, and forgetting to put it back in my camera….oh well! I promise there will be pics (and a recipe) tomorrow!

For now, though, I want to touch on a subject that is very important to me. Last week, Janae wrote an amazing guest post about the difference between running (or exercising) to lose weight and running because its what you enjoy doing. I want to talk briefly about how too much of a good thing (exercise) can actually have negative effects. Personally, I LOOOVE to do challenging workouts, such as running or even kickboxing. About a year and a half ago, I began participating in these types of workouts. I loved them, felt stronger and even noticed that I stressed out less. Then, it became something that I had to do every day, and if I missed a workout, it felt like the end of the world. I wouldn’t just get sad about missing the workout, I’d get depressed. Instead of working out when I felt like it, for the positive effects, I was working out to prove to everyone else that I could and lost the ability to be flexible in my schedule. There’s no telling what I missed out on while I was busy being upset at not getting to work out on a given day. Exercise shouldn’t control your attitude so completely, and that’s another area that I’ve been trying to work on!

Sorry for the super long rambling…..its just a topic that I wanted to mention at least once….:P

What do you think about exercise? Can it be excessive or am I overreacting? I really want to know what you think! 😀

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
