Mission of the Month

So, I am going to try listing my goals for each month. I am hoping that by doing this I am keeping myself accountable and more likely to complete my goals. At the end of the month I will check off what has been accomplished. I got this idea from another blogger (her link is on the left) and I am hoping it works for me as well.
Here we go!
Goals for June:

  • Begin to paint the kitchen
  • Start meal planning system from Sparkpeople

  • Continue Proverbs 31 Bible study
  • Continue Read the Bible in 90 day challenge: this month I will read Exodus-Ezra
  • Continue Couch to 5k program
  • Continue Sparkpeople tracking system (Love it!!)
  • Lose 5 pounds
  • Blog three times a week
  • Read one educational article a week (I'm a teacher)
OK, so lets see how this works this month!

Getting Fit

So my obsession right now is getting healthier and losing weight. In my proverbs 31 study today, the discussion was on doing good to your husband. One of the things was cooking healthy meals. I have never really thought of that as doing good to my husband. But it is , isn't it? If I am the one preparing the meals, am I not harming him by preparing fatting, unhealthy food? Sure he may like it and enjoy it, but is it really doing him good. Now I am not saying I will never prepare something that may not be all that healthy just because he likes it, but for the most part I want to feed him what will do him good! That makes my healthier change in me even more important. It's not just for me, it is also to do my husband good.

Memorial Day; I Am Blessed

Memorial : anything meant to help people remember a person or event. So I am thinking about all that I have been blessed with. Sometimes, we only look at our problems. Now don't think for a moment I am problem free. I have never felt so overwhelmed in my life with problems. But I am also overwhelmed with blessings! I have started a challenge to read the Bible in 90 days. I had to decided which translation I wanted to use. Did you catch that? I have accesses to so many translations that I had to pick one. How many people wish they had at least one? I have a pile of laundry to do. How many people wish they had clothes to wear? I have to decide what to cook? How many just want to eat? We have to pay to fix a broken truck for my husband's job? How many just want a job? I can go on and on. For every problem I have, God has blessed me with a promise. He will never leave me nor forsake me. He is my provider, my Comfort, my Shield. This memorial day, and everyday, I am going to CHOOSE to focus on the blessings, not the problems. My God is bigger than any situation I face!
