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

    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.
