Back-on-Track Challenge, Day 24
Here's how things went yesterday:
* Health & energy -- kept up with the Body Clutter Investigator, ate well, drank plenty of water, got about 27g fiber, exercised, and got 6.5 hours sleep.
* Devotional life -- worked on the Bible study Becoming a Woman of Grace, by Cynthia Heald; worked on memorizing 2 Peter 1:10-11. Had a wonderful quiet time of reading the Bible and praying. Made a new page for my prayer journal.
* Homemaking -- made a schedule for my day. Stuck to my schedule and accomplished most things on my list. Did three loads of laundry and hung them on the line with the hopes of getting them dry, since it was somewhat of a sunny day (a rarity this summer). Unfortunately the day was so humid that only about half of the items got completely dry.
* Creativity -- Spent time working on craft preparation for our church's kids' outreach on Saturday. Posted in my blog. Worked on a sewing project. Spent a few minutes on cross stitch Christmas ornaments. Wrote in my journal.
So that was day 24 of my challenge. I'm very pleased with how things went, especially my quiet time. It was wonderful... exactly what I want each day's quiet time to be, but it doesn't always work out that way! So far, it has been a super week in that department. I am also thankful that the Lord helped me to accomplish a lot yesterday even though I was out of the house for half of the day.
How about you? If you're taking part in this challenge with me, share your thoughts in the comments! Just a couple more days! Tomorrow will be my last 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.
