Back-on-Track Challenge, Day 1

Here’s how the first day of my Back-on-Track Challenge went:

*Health & energy -- Exercised; went for a walk; filled out Body Clutter investigator (a great tool from FlyLady that helps you chart how you’re doing in the areas of food, exercise, sleep, water, etc.); printed out 10 more copies of the BCI; did quite well with my eating considering our house is pretty empty of fresh groceries since our vacation.

* Devotional/Bible study -- Had a wonderful time of Bible reading and prayer. Worked on a Scripture memory passage. Spent some time studying (or should I say restudying) the areas of patience and longsuffering -- areas where I really need to grow.

* Homemaking -- kept up with all of my daily routines!! Did some reorganizing of the grandkids’ toy storage in the living room (badly needed since all 5 of them were here at once on Monday night). Vacuumed some of the living room furniture.

* Creativity -- spent a very few minutes backstitching on my “Country Baking” sampler.

* Christmas prep -- posted in my Christmas blog.


  1. I've used FlyLady's BCI occasionally. I like it, but if my routine changes at all, for just one day, I forget to write down my food and exercise and out the window it goes! LOL

    I've gotten back into exercising this week, and it feels good to move again. Hope the rest of your week goes as well as today did!

  2. I'm so glad that you had a nice time with your daughter and grandson. What a great bunch of secret keepers you have in your family! I hope that you are able to get back into your routine. Vacations are so nice but there is no place like home:). Glad to have you back.

  3. Hi ladies,

    so nice to hear from you both!

    Susan, I know exactly what you mean. I totally forgot about the BCI yesterday, but today I am back in the groove (I hope).

    Rachel, thanks for the sweet words. I'm sure you read over on Carrie's blog about the fun she and Joanna had together. Jo and Clay just love surprising people!

    It's nice to be back!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
