Day 3 of 100DTD Challenge (Spiritual)

Today I was in a rush and read from Our Daily Bread and Ephesians 3:14-21

To be honest I was was definitely not as in tune as I have been yesterday and the day before.

Tang Soo Do night!

Regular width Push-ups: 2 sets of 30

Plank for: 1 minute

Dynamic standing stretches: side and front

Static stretching: side split, front split, double sitting straight leg, single sitting straight leg (both sides), butterfly, quads (both side)

This class we concentrated on back stances, front stances, reverse punches, inside outside blocks and round house kicks.  Worked on new forms as well.

Regarding beverages: 1 cup of coffee in the morning, one Mountain Dew, and water through out the day.

Rating of my day (5 star scale):  3.5

Highlight: Ate more and slightly better than from previous days and enjoyed a great Tang Soo Do class.

Something to improve upon:  Get serious about doing Tang Soo Do for life!

Day 1 of 100DTD Challenge (Spiritual)

Today I spent about 1/2 an hour in the Word and in prayer.  My source today was Our Daily Bread and 2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 12-15

Nothing out of the ordinary but I do have to say that my day felt more full of life and purpose!

100DTD Challenge(s)

There are a lot of changes that are going to be taking place within our family over the next week and with those changes are new challenges. Being one to never back down from a good challenge, I’m doing one better and committing to a personal challenge that starts today while helping the kids go back to school and transitioning to no kids at home during the day!  Thus begins what I have coined the 100DTD Challenge (100 Days to Dynamically…).  My 100DTD Challenge(s) are:
