Day 2 ~ back-on-track health & energy challenge
Here's how day 2 went in the areas I'm trying to work on: *Drinking enough water -- done! * Getting to bed at a reasonable hour -- not done; even worse than yesterday. That's what happens when we don't eat supper until after 6 and have other tasks that must be attended to in an evening. * Eating more fruits and vegetables -- done! It's neat to see how God is pointing me toward good ideas about incorporating more fruits and veggies into our meals. It doesn't hurt that 2 of our favorite foods -- apples and squash -- are abundant and wonderful right now! * Getting more exercise -- done! * Eating less sugar -- done! I'm thrilled to have managed a second straight day of this. * Keeping track of the above each day - done! * Doing something creative every day (mental health!) -- done! Had to pull out all I had done on the scarf because it was coming out too wide; now have gotten it back to where it was before pulling it out. Also started work on some felt food for a November birthday. * Drinking some green tea daily -- done!
I am praising the Lord for a good second day of this challenge!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
