My Feb 3 in 30 goals

Alright so I have been watching this 3 in 30 phenom on twitter and facebook and decided to give it a try.  So February is here or almost and I have decided on my goals.......drumroll...

Number one- first and foremost for the sake of my husband and children I want to get a shower every day...all 28 in February.  Its funny because when on the rare occasion that I am away from the kids I am a shower fanatic.  A day does not go by that I do not shower there as even been the occasion (gasp) that I take two a day.  I am not going all out here my goal is a shower which will include clean clothes but I probably will not being doing hair and makeup all of these days...though I feel better we need to take baby steps.

Number two- I want to work out most days of the week for at least 30 min each time.  Most days to me is defined as 4 or more. I figure if I do anymore than 4 that is extra super awesome.  I want this goal to be laced with the thoughts that I am doing this for my health not to be a size or number.  I want to be able to continue to win the races with the kids when we can get outside this summer.  I want to feel better, did you know that some studies show that 30 min of exercise in some people can work as good as an antidepressant???? Well I want that feeling I used to feel when I worked out 5 days a week for an hour each day....

And finally Number three- this one might be the easiest one.  I want to start every new school week with lesson plans and materials ready.  No running around to find this book or that one or to plan (yes this has happened).  I want all the plans done and materials gathered for the week before we start.  Ya I am going to forget something here and there the point is to be ready the majority of the time.

So these may not seem like big goals but I figure if I keep them smaller this first time I am not as likely to give up.  I really love this idea  tackling our goals 3 at a time...I can so easily knock one and two out just by getting up an hour earlier though my coordination usually does not kick in  until noon at least this might be my best solution....

Well there they are...on the February we go!


  1. Awesome! It can really be hard to do those things, sometimes even the basics, to take care of ourselves. Especially with little ones and everyone home all the time. I think these are great goals that will make your day so much more peaceful. Yay you! Did you link up at one of the main 3 in 30 pages yet?

  2. Last month I did the exercise goal. It has now become a habit. It's a great stress reducer and I do feel better. The benefits have been great - better sleep, less stress and yes, have dropped a pant size or two. Great goals. Can't wait to see how it goes for you.

  3. #2 should definitely help with #1, but I can totally relate with the struggle to shower daily! If I don't get in the shower before the kids are up, I'm lucky to see the shower that day. Thus, one of my goals for the month includes getting up earlier!
