How the first day went...
Back-on-Track Challenge, Day 1
Here's how things went yesterday:
* Health & energy -- kept up with the Body Clutter Investigator, ate well, exercised, drink quite a bit of water, got 23g fiber, and got 6.5 hours sleep.
* Devotional life -- got back into my study of Psalms (I'm currently studying Psalm 96:1-4); selected 2 verses to memorize (2 Peter 1:3-4). Had a good quiet time of Bible reading and prayer as well.
* Homemaking -- planned my week and made a schedule for my day. Planned my menus for the week. Did some but not all of the weekly home blessing. Did a small amount of decluttering. Did lots of laundry. Didn't do anything (other than dishes and basic upkeep) in zone 2.
* Creativity -- spent quite a bit of time trying to recapture the chapters of an old manuscript which are on floppy disks and need to be transferred to my present computer so I can work on them and print them out. Spent awhile on curtains I am making for a friend. These have been giving me fits. I figured out a more efficient way to put the ruffles on them and am thankful to the Lord for helping me think creatively.
So that was day 1 of my challenge. Overall, I'm pleased with how the day went. How about you? If you're taking part in this challenge with me, share your thoughts in the comments (or on your own blog, if you have one)!
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.
