New Streak - Day 1

Thursday, July 05, 2018

I suppose I've had a lot of 'Day 1s' over the past year. Mostly it shows I wasn't really serious in the first place. Maybe desperately flailing about. I've put a lot of thought and consideration into this before I dared be public. So, here goes. If you desire, hold me accountable. I will answer email. I may answer posts. I will read everything.

So, I am starting with small goals. Not that I'm not up for a challenge, but I'm more concerned about building consistency before I get real involved. I have also determined to follow a whole person approach. So, here are my minimum goals for each day:

Body - Walk 1 mile before I leave for work in the morning.
Mind - Read something that challenges the way I think for at least 15 minutes each day.
Spirit - Start each day with Scripture

Today's results:
Body - It turned out the route I walked was slightly less than a mile. I'm counting a success because I completed the plan honestly. I'll make sure it is a complete mile tomorrow.
Mind - I started re-reading The Spark. Re-reading may be a bit optimistic, as I don't think I ever finished it in the first place, but I read all of chapter one.
Spirit. I continued a reading plan I previously started, reading two passages from Genesis.

Secondary Goals:
Body - Meet the step count goal suggested by VivoFit. Today's goal: 4,915. Completed: 6,408
Get to bed before 10:00. I have an hour, and I'm going to make it.
Mind - Journal my reading. Weill, if I can be done before 10:00
Spirit - Also journal the Bible reading. That's up next.
Also under Spirit is this blog. I have become convinced that there are sufficient similarities between a journey to a healthy, whole life and growing Christlikeness, that the two are joined in many ways.

    Just have faith in yourself and just repeated over and over again each day and you would be amazed what you could do
