3 in 30: Week 1


Wow! The first week of 3 In 30 has already come to an end!

How did you do? Did you accomplish all you had hoped and planned to? If not, what held you up? Do you have any encouraging words for the others who are joining in?

January 2011
Goals and Accomplishments: Week One

1.  Drink 3 - 16 ounce glasses of water each day.  YES
2.  Lose 5 pounds this month... shouldn't this coincide with the water, yes?!?!
  NO (SIGH... I didn't go up either)
3.  Update our computer checkbook every week.  YES

Well, 2 out of 3 isn't too bad.  I guess I need to start moving even more!

To myself and everyone else, habits don't begin and/or change overnight.  Through Patience and Perseverance, we can and will make the positive changes we desire.

We are going to have a weekly link-up. Nothing fancy, nothing required other than us hearing from you. The link-up will go live at 9pm CST on Thursday nights.

Link Up Schedule:
  • 1st Friday of each month: "Roll Call"
    Who's in for this month? Let us know!
  • 2nd Friday of each month: "Check-Up"
    How did this week go for you? Check in!
  • 3rd Friday of each month: "Encouraging words"
    Let us know what quote, Scripture, or encouraging words got you through this week?
  • 4th Friday of each month: "Closing Comments"
    Overall reaction to this month's goals. Also, include what your goals are for the following month.
  • 5th Friday (occasional): "What blogs did you visit this month?"

Making our goals a reality 3 at a time.


  1. Your doing well keep up the hard work! Your blog is great!

  2. Over from 3 in 30 - good job on making your goals! Don't be too hard on yourself - it's really hard to meet a specific weight goal in such a short period of time. You're doing great!

  3. Stopping in from 3 in 30 and sounds like you're doing great! Your goals are awesome. Keep up the good work and you will accomplish them in no time! Won't it be great to have 3 checked off by the end of Jan? I can't wait to see everyones progress :)

  4. I'm here from 3in30, too. You are doing a good job. I need to put more thought into my February list. Lots of you seem to have smarter lists.

  5. Hello there!
    Just stopping by via 3 in 30!!
    Don't fret about the weight.. keep drinking that water and you'll get there!!! :-)

  6. You are doing a great job on your goals. The weight loss will come in time, just keep working at it.

    (stopping by from 3in30)

  7. I've found that when I first start drinking lots of water my weight actually goes up. It takes time for the weight to start to come off, so don't fret. You can do it!

  8. Sounds like you're off to a good start! Not gaining is the way to start losing! :-D

  9. Just a gentle suggestion about the 5 lbs. thing: you know that's not normal, right? Most people lose that much the first week if they're lucky and then, it drops to 1-3lbs. a week.

    Plus, it is something you have very little control over. The eating, exercise and water drinking you have much more control over.

    The results? Not so much! Oy, I remember from dieting :).


  10. I'm so glad that you're joining in the 3 In 30 challenge. I loved reading your post and am so excited to continue to connect over the next year! Continue the good work!
