3 in 30: February Goals

Well, well, well...I feel like I'm constantly going to the well for more water.  And, frankly, I don't like water.  Not without lemon...and sometimes not even with it. :)  But, I probably did drink more water this week and, therefore, I am well on my way to accomplishing this goal for February.  As for getting to the Y this week in addition to drinking my water...let's just say I made it there once.  Had a sick boy most of the week and we didn't get out much at all.  Very thankful he's on the mend!  There's still time, though, to get there a couple more times...  
I'm almost completely finished stuffing photos that I've gathered from my hotspots into photo albums, too.  Had to go and purchase two more albums this week to have room for them.  I love the time the boys and I have spent reminiscing over our past adventures.  Makes me want to print out the pics from my computer and get them into albums, too...maybe I'll just order some more photo books.  Sounds cheaper...I have thousands of digital photos.
As for my third goal of visiting a friend "just because", I traveled to MI and spent some time with my best friend and her family.  Met my "niece" for the first time, too.  My boys call her "Auntie Deb" and hers (will) call me "Aunt Janet".  Loved seeing them all and getting to play in the snow for a little while.  Glad to come home to my daffodil sprouts, though.  Called another friend this week, too, which I haven't gotten together with for awhile...hoping to meet up with her next week. :)
I'm enjoying the accountability that I am feeling with this 3 in 30 group...makes me want to have a good report at the end of each week, so I try really hard at making some progress along the way.  Thank you, all! 


  1. hey! i'm joining the 3 in 30 for the first time this week, so i'm brand new to this. already looking forward though :)

    sounds like you're on a good start...and what a fun 3rd goal!

  2. thanks for visiting my blog
    do you keep a bottle of water next to you that helps

    I LOVE looking at photos :)

    catching up with friends is cool :)

  3. great progress on those goals!! Drinking water is really hard for me - probably why I didn't make it one of my goals this month, lol :)

    awesome that you were able to get a visit in - those are my favs!

  4. Looks like you are doing pretty good with your goals. I have also had a sick son, so it has made it hard to totally finish my goals, but I still have a couple of days to try and finish them out. I think I will succeed though, because I am enjoying trying to make the goal! :) Have an awesome day!

  5. Water with lemon is actually better for you! Even though, I don't like it, I try to drink it. Keep up the good work!

  6. I used to hate drinking water, but after a while I grew accustomed to it. I don't drink sodas anymore. I don't allow myself my morning cup of coffee until I've drank 2 cups of water (I have a cup that holds that much).

  7. sounds like you're on a roll sister! I'm one to talk to about the drinking water thing...water and I have a love/hate relationship. I just love my sweet ice tea and it's soo sooo hard to do's just one of my many things that make me smile!
    good luck this week with your goals I have faith in ya!

  8. Way to go in meeting and working towards your goals :o)

    Good to hear that you son is feeling better! I LOVE looking at our old photos..I really need to get soooo many of them into albums! I literally have rubbermaids full of photos in their envelopes from the photo dept.

    And how fun to visit with "family"...we have dear friends from when my hubby were first married that even though time and distance has separated us, when we do get together it is like we've been together always...:o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment and visit!

  9. I found that when water doesn't taste good, adding a partial packet of a mix-in helps me drink more of it. Keep it up!

  10. Wow, you're doing great!!

    Sorry to hear that your son was sick. I know how stressful that can be.


  11. I love the idea of 3 for 30 -- and you are making great progress. I drink a ton of water -- I carry a water bottle around with me 24/7 -- everyone makes fun of me. As for the photos...I think I am about 4 years behind -- that would definitely be one of my goals.

    Thanks for visting my blog this week -- lovely to meet you here!

  12. Oh the water goal! lol I didn't do as well with it last month as I had hoped, I don't know why I find it so hard.

    Good luck with your February goals, you have a great list!

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…
