Rough Night - Quiet Day

Monday, April 02, 2012

I had a very bad night. Last night my throat started to hurt. I was able to fall asleep, but when I woke up at 2:00 to go to the bathroom, I couldn't get back to sleep. I finally got up at 3:00 and sparked until 4:00am., then went back to bed and slept fitfully. I only had 2 boys this morning, so it was nice. I am surprised how well I did today. My throat still hurts, good thing I have a physical scheduled for tomorrow.

Today, I started teaching a friend's daughter piano lessons. This is a new adventure for me.

Tonight my daughter and I went to the gym and did an hour cardio session -- 20 min ea on the stationary bike, the gazelle, and the elliptical. I am tired and ready for bed.

April goals:
1. Blog daily: emoticon

2. Exercise:
--Gym 3x's a week: emoticon
--Minimum 30 min a day: 71 min emoticon

3. Snacks -- one freggie snack a day: banana emoticon

4. Read Bible chronologically daily emoticon
I started over today. I got as far as Gen 44 when I stopped in February. Last Saturday I got the book Reader's Guide to the Bible, Chronological Reading Plan by George Guthrie.

    Carrie, You had a really good day in spite of the sore throat and lack of sleep. It's hard to want to exercise when you're not feeling good and not getting enough sleep but you did it! Way to go!
