Got 75% on my goal!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Well, I had aimed for 10,000 steps today, but I only walked 7,610 steps. One reason I didn't reach my goal was that my daughter came home from school sick, so instead of going for an evening walk with the dog, I hung out with my teenager who was feeling miserable.
Yes, I wanted to achieve my goal, but at the same time my child needed me. So, I feel okay about it. 75% is not great, but it is not failing! It's a C+.
For tomorrow, Wednesday, June 12, I will stay in my calorie range.

    It's a balancing act. You gave to your daughter and also took some time for yourself. Life isn't perfect and neither are we. You're worth the effort. I like your one day goals.

Hope your daughter feels better. emoticon emoticon

    Having my grand kids in and out all day. I sometimes get stopped with my exercising to take care of whatever is needed with them. And something is always needed. lol I just take up where I left off or I will start over after they have gone home for the night. Hope your daughter is feeling better. emoticon

    Hi Margret...hope your youngster is better today. Hey life happens and at times we have no control. You were still out there moving about so that is great. I know you'll do good with today's goal. Keep moving on! emoticon

    75% is better than 50% or not moving much at all. Tomorrow is a new day. You can do it! Hope you daughter is feeling better soon.
