Today was day 1 of the Peak313 Spark Team Challenge. I am still getting over being sick, but doing WAY better than yesterday. I was actually able to cook lunch AND dinner for my family. The boys had been eating things like pizza rolls, which they were more than happy to eat, but I wanted them to have something with a little more nutrition
Even with being sick, I have stayed within my calories (actually less than normal). I track my food on the myfitnesspal app. I got my Bible reading done (our challenge is to read at least 2 chapters a day). I actually read four chapters because each time I was about to stop, the next chapter ended so close to the end of the page so I didn't want to stop at the end of a page where there were only a couple lines left. Guess I'm weird like that, lol.
Obviously I did not get my workout in today. I did consider it briefly tonight, telling myself that maybe I would do some weights or yoga. But the more I thought about, I realized that would have been crazy. I knew that God was telling me to rest (even though I was feeling a bit stir-crazy!). I have my workout clothes set out for the morning for "just in case" I feel up to working out.
Another part of the challenge is to read at least one non-fiction book each month. I started Beth Moore's "Breaking Free" book. I am excited to read it, it's one that I have been wanting to read for a while. I ended up finding it at Goodwill for $0.25 (I love a good deal!) So far I have been doing a lot of underlining, which is always a sign of a good book for me.
I am excited about doing this challenge! It's the perfect way to start the New Year!
