3 in 30: January Goals

My goals for January are...
to get back into going to the Y at least 3 x's a week...I took a holiday vacation and miss my time there tremendously.

to restore order to all the closets...this has already started with the help of my mom who's been visiting this week.

to purposefully put to use my spiritual gifts...this one may be hard to guage, but am praying for God to open my eyes and heart to opportunities to serve others.

May God help us all as we strive to make reasonable goals and fulfill them this month!


  1. Good to hear that you had a wonderful holiday vacation. And that you are working on meeting your goals for getting back at the Y (I really need to start some form of exercise!)
    ...organizing your closets...(hm...I really need to do this too)
    ...and using what gifts and talents the Lord has blessed you with (I am so thankful and get blessed when what seems to be my actions of service turns out times that end up blessing me more :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Sorry for just now returning your visit. Thank you so much for stopping by my last post.

  2. I would love to hear how you are organizing your closets! My closets are scary! LOL!

    Have fun at the Y and I know that when you have a heart willing and wanting to serve, God will open the doors for you. Be ready to give those now words in season and to bless others with what He puts in your hands. I'm excited to hear what God does through you...

  3. Aren't moms GREAT for helping organize? What a blessing to have her and to give you a jump start.

    It's amazing what happens when we ask God to open our eyes to see, our ears to hear, and our hearts to know what HE wants us to do; what HIS will is for us. He's cool like that and faithful.

    I'm stopping over from your post on my blog regarding the 3 in 30, thank you for the encouragement!

    Blessings to you too as you move forward accomplishing your goals. =)

    Keeping it Personal,

  4. These are all great goals to work on.

    I have been walking to my Leslie Sansone DVD'...Walk Away the Pounds!
    And even though it has only been a few days now, I am feeling better.

    I have the desire to go through closets, cupboards and drawers and organize too...but I haven't started yet. I guess i just need to start somewhere!

  5. I'm stopping by from 3 in 30 to say hi and see what you are doing.

    I have been looking for ways to be of use to others as well. Why is this so difficult? It seems like lots of people want help, but when you offer it they don't take you up on the offer.

  6. Hey there! Stopping by from 3 in 30 to see how you are doing with your goals this week! I am looking forward to getting to know you through the challenge! Good luck and I will be praying for you throughout the next month!

  7. Ahhh..closets. we could have a homeless man living in there and not even know it! I love your spiritual gift goal! Never thought of it in those terms but I have shared that desire and prayer for a long time. I always wonder how many of our gifts must be going to waste simply b/c we don't desire tofind out what they are and use them. I'll keep you in my prayers for you to see all that He has for you.

  8. Thanks, everyone! 5 closets down and 1 left to go...loving that it's almost over! Summer, I tackle them by emptying them out completely (if possible), vacuum/dust, and then put only what is necessary back in in an orderly fashion. Time consuming, but the results are wonderful.
    I was smiling as I was at the Y today, too, feeling a great peace about being back in the swing of things. Blessings to you all as we head into day 9 of January.

  9. LOVE your goals! Thanks for joining us for the 3 in 30 Challenge!

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
