3 in 30: November {week 3}

3in30 I'm In!!Consistently get back to the Y in the mornings...Made it every day but Friday.  Didn't hear my alarm.  I went this morning in order to make my 5 days. Yay, me!
Begin making/shopping for Christmas presents...Still working on calendars and photobooks and my nephew's blanket.  Every minute of work now is a minute less I'll spend being rushed in December.
Use gift of encouragement...Focused on encouraging my boys this week by spending some special one on one time with each of them.  On Tuesday, Alex and I went to work out together in the fitness center.  He's allowed in there now that he's nine and has been wanting to go with me.  We had alot of fun together!  Encouraging good and healthy habits in his lifestyle now can only help him continue in them on his own as he grows up.  Tim and I spent Thursday evening in the kitchen together making chocolate chip cookies.  He got to do everything...and alot of it all by himself.  Loved seeing him work so hard at getting the job done!  Encourging him in helping cook and teaching him how to do things in the kitchen will help prepare him for life on his own.  You can see photos in my post, Li'l Chef, of our baking together.  So fun!!!
Hope everyone is having a great month of getting some goals met!  God bless as we celebrate Thanksgiving next week!


  1. Great job!! I love your third goal - something that I'm trying to do with my little ones as well :)

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…
