3 in 30 - January Goals


Ok, I took December off.  I am glad too as it was a crazy month.  I am looking forward to January.  It's a new year.  Last year I know I wrote that I wasn't going to write out any resolutions and I am going to do the same this year.  However, I do have some goals I need to work on.  A lot of them.....and then some that may pop up.  This year I'm going to participate regularly in the 3 in 30 Sisterhood.  It's great to have accountability and support of other ladies that are going through similar things or working on things that they need support and accountability for.

In 2013 I'm going to reflect these goals in 3 areas - Spiritually, Emotionally and Physical.  Physical may not just be about my body.  It may be about my house or yard.  Emotionally may be working on relaxation, taking time for myself or it could be working on issues.  Spiritually while that is a life long learning process between me and God and where He will be leading me.

For this month my goals will be:

Spiritually

This year I will get through the whole Bible.  I know I say this every year, but this year I will persevere.  I recently found a free book via Inspired Reads called Designed for Devotion: A 365 Day Journey from Genesis to Revelation by Dianne Neal Matthews.  I will be using this for daily scripture readings.  I will also spend some time making a list of 52 messy people of the Bible so that I can blog about them.  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Emotionally

I know this may not sound like a relaxation job, but clutter is stressing me out.  I need to start decluttering my home.  As a result I am going to continue on my home reorganization project.  This month I am going to work on my my Craft area, Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom, my Den and Family Room and the Dining Room in that order.  I will be purging unused craft supplies, clothes, books, and nick knacks.  I always feel refreshed when everything is in it's home and when there seems to be some order.  I may also work on creating a Family Organization Binder.  I used to have one and gave up, but I have some ideas from ones I have seen on Pinterest and will use some of the free printables out there.

Physically

I'm going to join the pack and start with my health.  I recently had a conversation with a friend who suffers from Anorexia and we both agree about diets.  I don't want to focus on losing weight the same way she doesn't want to focus on gaining wait.  We both want to focus on getting healthy.  I'm going to do this slowly.  This month I will be following the Lean program.  I may modify it a bit but this time I will finish it.  I need to start looking at food differently and looking at it as health not comfort.

I can't wait to get started with these goals and to let you know next week how I'm doing.  I also can't wait to read everyone else's goals.  Come join the 3 in 30 Ladies at Welcome to Our Good Life and join in.

I love these goals and how you have broken then down! Great idea to blog about 52 messy people. I can't wait to read about them. :) I totally understand the need to declutter and organize in order to destress. I am the same way. I too am looking at ways to get healthy so I'll be on a similar journey. Let's hold each other accountable along the way! Happy New Year!

These are great goals! I love that way that you have divided them up - what a wonderful idea :)

I'm with you on the clutter - I always feel better when I'm purging and decluttering - and between my girls and my hubby there is always something that needs to be cleaned!
