Back On Track Challenge, Day 1
Okay, I've reached the end of my 21-day back on track challenge. Has it been successful? Not entirely. However, I have re-established the habit of exercise -- the habit I'd really fallen down on and was most concerned about. To me, that's a huge victory! One way I've motivated myself to exercise daily is to reward myself after exercising with an opportunity to post on my Christmas Kitchen blog. It's worked beautifully.
For today, here's what got done:
* Bible study -- just worked on my Sunday School lesson. Almost done! This has been a very challenging lesson.
* Creativity -- spent some time researching crafts for Vacation Bible School. Brought home all the craft materials from church to see what we already have that can be used. Started going through the materials and have thrown away some junk already.
* Homemaking -- just the basic routines. Did some baking for a tea party with friends (rescheduled until next Friday). Finished my menu planning and grocery list. Cooked a meal for my parents and did their grocery shopping.
* Health & energy -- did pretty well drinking water, kept up with BCI. Exercised; went for a walk.
In other news: I got a call tonight from a church in another state interested in purchasing some of the kids' summer devotional books I've written. Exciting stuff!
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.
