3 in 30 January check up

How am I doing?
Well . . .

  • On reading the Bible every day, I am actually doing well. I have read some every day and I am a bit ahead on the Bible in 90 days challenge. I like to stay one day ahead so that I am not behind if I am not able to do a full days worth one day. Honestly though, I am really enjoying it, and learning from it. Since it was only a few days before that I read where the Edomites came from (for example) I remember the connection when the Edomites don't let the Israelites pass through their land.
  • Keeping a food journal: I stink at this. Seriously. I journaled one day. Really I need to figure out some app for the Blackberry that makes it easy because I always have my phone with me.
  • On cooking more real meals: I did! I cooked a healthy, balanced, delicious meal for every day of the week. And then I woke up. So really not so much. I did do 3 meals with a TON of left-overs. We had homemade tomato soup (full of veggies) with grilled cheese sandwich (homemade bread), PW's Chicken Tortilla Soup (except it was more like a casserole because I didn't add the water. Because I doubled it. And my pot was too small. seriously), and homemade chili (which needs a bunch of work to taste right since there was no mix involved.)

    As a side note, I think it should be required by law to state if the serves 8 is 8-that-are-also-eating-Thanksgiving-dinner or 8-that-haven't-eaten-all-day-long-and-this-is-all-you-are-cooking. Because it really makes a difference.

    As another side note, we like chicken tortilla casserole.

So I guess I did halfway in all :-/

Next month I will challenge myself to breathe every day, eat every day, and brush my teeth every day.

The end.


  1. I found you on the 3 in 30 link up. Great job! I love Chicken Tortilla Soup, I'm going to check out the recipe. And I think you're totally right about being required to state how big the serving size is :) It's hard to know until you've tried it.

  2. I landed here from 3 in 30 at the Tuckers Take Tennessee blog! At least you are doing well on your most important goal for this month, right?! I have tried to keep a food journal on and I love it BUT I also use my notepad on my Blackberry if I'm in a pinch (away from home). Just a thought!

    I've enjoyed visiting your blog! I'm becoming a follower. We are also a homeschool family---I have 3 girls ages 9, 5 and 1.

  3. Tortilla soup is the best! I might have to try what you did and see what I think. The casserole has to be great too, right?

    - Just another new friend dropping by from 3 in 30.

  4. Sounds like your doing pretty well! The food journal is a good idea.. just keep trying :-)

  5. Hi! Stopping by from the 3 in 30 link-up. My word for you is ADJUST, it's OK!! If your original goals aren't "realistic" make a few changes, keep moving forward - you're doing fantastic!! =) Love your side note. I typically NOT eating cuz my boys are GROWING so fast and always hungry so no matter how much I make, they gobble it up.

    Keeping it Personal,

  6. It sounds to me like you are doing a great job; doing a little is better than doing none - and the Bible reading - just awesome! Keep it up!
