This is my first time doing the 3 in 30 Challenge. I’m a goal oriented person, however, so it’s right up my alley. This idea is to come up with three goals you want to accomplish in thirty days (one month). I love being held accountable – it drives me, so here goes…
Goal #1: Lose Weight
I’m going to keep losing weight. I don’t want to necessarily put a number of pounds in thirty days on this goal because I really haven’t been doing it long enough to be in a losing pattern to estimate yet. My overall goal is twenty pounds. So, sticking with it is my goal this month. I’m doing a meme for losing weight that is helping tremendously with encouragement and not feeling alone on this journey. Check it out: Slim Down Sunday Meme. I post on Sunday, but linkup is any time during the week.
Poomses are taekwondo combinations that we learn for each belt. The boys and I are on our sixth belt now and we should have all six poomses memorized. However, I seem to have poomse amnesia. Every time I start learning a new one, I forget the old ones. This is bad and frustrating. I really don’t understand why I can’t keep them memorized. I’m surmising OLD syndrome has something to do with is.
Goal #3: Invest in our Homeschool
This goal is ongoing, but I wanted it stated clearly for this month. Homeschooling the boys is my priority right now; however, it’s easy to let other things start getting in the way of giving it my all. One of those things is my job. I tend to get distracted by my commitments to my students at the university and become more lax in my focus on my two most important students. That is not to say their academics suffers, but I want to be more accessible and even more invested. I’m going to find balance here. I’ve taken a term off from teaching online to see how much of an impact that has on our schooling.
So, those are my three main goals. Thank you for your encouragement and comments as they all help keep me on track.
What are your three main goals for August?
