Granddaughter Dedication

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I took today as a rest day where I didn't do any exercise - the first in a long time. I had a rough night - I went to bed with a headache & stuffed ear, then my knees began to ache. I woke up the same. We were going to be leaving earlier for church because we were going to my daughter's church, so I decided I didn't want to get up real early and exercise.

My baby granddaughter was dedicated this morning. We went to my daughter's after church for lunch. We ended up staying until 8:00pm to watch all the grandkids while their parents went out on dates.

I had a great day with family, so I am not worried about meeting all my daily goals. Tomorrow is a new day and I am going to work hard this week to meet my January goal by Saturday.

Daily Goals....
1. Minimum of 30 minutes of exercise though I am trying to get 120 min a day -- emoticon rest day
2. Minimum of 5 freggies emoticon 4
3. 8-10 glasses of water emoticon8
4. Lean protein for one snack -- emoticon
5. Do NOT graze/snack all day -- emoticon
6. Blog even if it is to keep track of goals. emoticon

    We all need rest days now and then.

    Baby dedications are so beautiful. How many grands do you have?

    Rest days are important! What a happy day! Some of my favorite days are when the "parents" have a date and we get the grandkids to ourselves!

    Bless your heart. Have you been to the doc about your ear yet? Sounds like you need to get on some antibiotics if you are not already. Sorry about all the aches and pains! I severely overdid on Sat. and Sun. was a bust! Going to the gym here, shortly & I seriously doubt I'll get 120 min. this time, but I will get at least 60!
    Hope you feel better today and work in some minutes for yourself as well as the CLOVERLEAFs!!! (((HUGS)))

    We all need a day now and then to let our muscles repair themselves. Good job! Now you will feel renewed as you exercise today!

    Sounds like you had a lovely day. It should never be an issue to have a rest day and what better way to spend it than with your grandchildren.

    Great job! You're keeping yourself accountable and being consistent with your progress. Everyone needs a rest day occasionally. And I'm sure you got some exercise in while babysitting those precious grandkids!
