February 3 in 30 Challenge

I am linking up today with the 3 in 30 challenge.  

I have chosen 3 goals to work on for the month of February.  The plan is that we will hold each other accountable throughout the 30 days, and then report our progress at the end.  

3 new goals for each month of the year, with built in accountability.

I like it.

Sooo...for February, my 3 goals are

1) Be consistent in having a daily quiet time each morning.  I'm going to be using a devotional book that my mother gave me called, Jesus Calling.  Short, meaningful devotions to focus my heart and mind on Christ each morning.

2) Be consistent in preparing 4 gluten free dinners each week.  My daughter can't eat gluten, and although I have recipes available to prepare, we often end up eating out for convenience, due to the kid's activities, etc.. I would like to limit the eating out to weekends as much as possible.  It would be healthier for everyone in the family, and cheaper!

3) Post new blog entries 3-4 times a week, and start making some improvements to my blog.  My blog is important to me, but I have often found myself abandoning it for months at a time when things get busy around here.  I don't want to do that.  Things are always busy.  I love having a record of the things that are happening in my life, and I want to make it more of a priority to take time to blog.

So there you have it.

You officially have my permission to hold me accountable!  :)

Writing the Waves,

good luck with your february goals! we have some similar desires. though i don't have to worry about gluten, i'm working on eating out less and more healthy meals at home.
i also have a morning quiet time - have been doing it for about six months and i love it! i've been working my way through the bible (cover to cover) for right at a year now (i'm in acts).

We have to eat gluten free as well. I'm hoping to plan better for that. I'm also hoping to blog more on my blogs, too. :)

Hooray for you! I'd love to know about the gluten free recipes that you like. Maybe you can combine your two of the goals by posting an occasional recipe. :) Lisa~

I like your February goals. I too am working on my publishing schedule this month. It will be nice to see how you are tackling this issue.

{It is wonderful to know your children are on board with keeping you accountable. lol}
