Bowling my butt off!

I have recently developed an addiction to blogs.  Many of my friends are bloggers, and it's a great way to keep up with what's really going on in their lives, not just what their Facebook status says.  So, here I am!  Writing my first blog!

After taking opinions from others as to what I should write about, as well as considering my own interests and what I want to write about, I have entitled my blog, "Bowling my butt off!"  The reasons are threefold: 1. Several folks asked that I consider writing about bowling, an activity that my husband and I greatly enjoy doing and try to do weekly.  2.  Others asked if I would be interested in writing about fitness and health, something I also try to maintain in my life.  3.  I wanted to keep some aspect of my faith, my work, and my relationship with God in the blog world.  So, here we have it: My health and fitness are strongly tied to my relationship with God, and bowling is a really fun way for me to continue living an active lifestyle!

My hope is that this will help me and others to better understand how our lifestyles affect our spiritual lives, how taking care of our bodies (our temples) will improve our relationships with God and with others. 

Finally, I also have a fairly inappropriate relationship with food.  Ever since I was a kid, and my parents divorced, I have used food for many things other than nutrition and basic sustenance, ergo I have an inappropriate relationship with food.  For me, health and fitness are inseparable from my relationship with food, as is my relationship with God.  Often in my life, I "depend" on food, when I should be depending on my faith or my God.  So, I will also be including posts on food, recipes, slip-ups, and successes.

I hope you enjoy this new adventure that I am taking!
