I did pretty well with this challenge. My goals were to:
1) Unwind each night rather than working right up until the time I go to bed emoticon
2) Get 7 hours of sleep - Did this 3/5 days, which better than I usually do. I got at least 6 hours of sleep each night

Will be doing at least two days of shopping instead of one since my mom is out of town (she keeps my youngest two days a week). Always spend time clipping coupons since I have to be real tight with my budget. Not much else as far as restful since as mentioned before my mom is out of town and I will not get my two days of me time.

There won't be much REST time for me after today. I work the next 3 nights so I'll work in some relaxation this afternoon. I think I'll do a little reading and maybe catch up on some shows I have recorded.

I'm "resting" by getting back into my regular habits after a week of 'staycationing" in San Diego. That means more regular exercise, less eating out, more Sparking, more reading, more of my regular life. So I'm ready for this challenge.

Hmmm... this is not my forte. I will make sure I unwind each night rather than working right up until the time I go to bed. I'm hoping to get 7 hours of sleep each night as well.

My plans are to do less Sparking. Sleep more. Work on my Bible study. and also read some in a novel I've been working on. I also want to walk more. I've been sitting entirely too much.

I'm going to enjoy a RESTFUL week.
