3 in 30 February

Tomorrow is the first day of February and time for a new set of goals. While I could just redo my goals from January, (especially those that didn't go so well) I decided not to do that.

Well, not completely.

Without further ado here are my goals for February:

  • Reading the Bible every day: I did do fairly well with this one, I am not behind on Bible in 90 days. I did get behind a couple of times but was able to catch up, but its only day 28 so I still have more to go before I have read all the way through. I am almost 1/3 of the way through!

  • Plan meals for each week: I don't mind planning out the meals but I have not successfully followed a plan for a week. If I plan some easy meals and more difficult meals but don't set the day of the week, I cook the easy ones first and then skip the harder ones. If I plan set days to do each meal, then I get aggravated because the warmest day of the week is the one I put down for chili - since this is Texas we could be having chili on the day it is 80F out and the next day have a low of 20F. So not only do I have to keep our schedule in mind, I also have to look at the weather. I am hoping that if I stick to the meal planning thing for a month, I will figure out how to do it so that it works for me.

  • do some form of exercise for at least 15 minutes: yes, I know 15 minutes isn't very much. Some days though, that may be all I can manage. Plus my hope is that if I do it for 15 minutes, I will add on some extra and make it 20 or 30 minutes worth of exercise for that day. Also, if when the 15 minutes becomes habit, I can up that habit to 20 or 30 minutes. I think.

So now you know what my goals are for February. What are yours? If you haven't set any goals yet, you might want to join 3in30.

Oh, how did I do in January? I did well with reading the Bible but not so good on cooking real meals which is why I am trying to plan meals to cook. The food diary was done I think one day out of the month. Again, meal planning should help with that one. So all in all, January wasn't great with meeting my goals. February will be better though. Right? Hello?


  1. I totally understand where you are coming from with the exercise goal! My aim is simply to EXERCISE, even two minutes, consistently.

    So glad you're joining us for the #3in30 Challenge this month!!

  2. meal planning is so helpful once you get in the habit of doing it! speaking from experience here :) great job! and keep up the great work. feb will be awesome.

  3. Christi, I was glad to see your goals in my reader because they have made me consider making some for myself. Best wishes as you strive to reach these this month.

    Re meal planning - over the years I have tried and tried to plan ahead, and sometimes it works, but while your issue is sometimes the weather (that's CRAZY, lol) mine is usually $$. I have finally gotten into a groove that allows me to cook my favorite recipes using what is in my freezer. We'll see how long my groove lasts, lol! ~Lori

  4. I plan out meals and know what your saying. I figure that if anything.. it helps me have all the ingredients on hand and if I need to switch things up I can...

    Good luck in February
