Today's Score: 2.5
Today was better than yesterday I think. Though I did not do well with food, I did do well in other areas.
I stuck with a committment to meet a friend from work to go on a "photowalk". We met at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum at 8am - not an easy time at all for me to get up on a Sunday - Sometimes getting up for 10:30 church service is even hard - but I did it, and am soo glad I did! I told my friend I was impressed with her commitment, even though it was "spritzing" rain in the beginning. We'd been talking about photography since she got a Nikon and took a photography class, and she shared how much she'd wanted to get out with someone to do photography, but hadn't yet found anyone willing to do it. I was happy to oblige: I had fun with my own photos, plus I was able to teach her a little bit, which I enjoy doing. Plus it got me walking early one which felt good too!
I went straight to church afterwards, and it was the Global Day of Prayer. I literally felt like I was praying and worshipping along with believers all around the world.. Felt God's presence.. and was very humbled learning about the persecution of believers in Egypt. I came out of there with a different mindset- one which I returned through at various points in the day.
I had to return my pedometer because it was randomly resetting itself - extremely annoying. I ran around to various stores and never did find the one I wanted/read about online, so I ordered it from Amazon - can hardly wait, because I really find motivation in seeing my steps each day, and I MANUALLY counted my steps.
I squeezed in my back exercises AND an additional 1,000 steps all within the last hour, and now I'm off to bed.. If I sleep a little late, I'll JUST make my 7 hours!
