3in30 week 1 update

Happy Saturday all!! I can't believe that the first week of January is gone. WOW! I really never came up with a third goal and honestly I am ok with that. I am working hard on my two goals and I think that might be enough for now.

Ok... the Dr pepper goal- going well. I really only had one day where I REALLY wanted a Dr Pepper after 3pm. That was the day were the dr told me that I'm most likely headed for knee surgery. I can explain that whole mess later- just know that any goals of exercising are out of the question right now- I'm on crutches. So that night I really wanted a BIG HONKIN glass of Dr Pepper. But I didn't... no really. I didn't. I took a pain pill instead.Needed the pain pill, didn't need the soda. So that little goal is working well for me. I did wonder if my soda intake would increase in the morning because I knew the "cut off" was coming, but it hasn't. I am still doing the same things... route 44 on the way to school... then sip on it all day. 3pm rolls around and no more soda. Kind of cool, if I do say so myself.

Now the table goal... um...does have a table count? Really it's better but it's only week 1. Here is what is happening now. No longer do the children "turn in" anything on my table. We use a turn in bucket (which is near my table). I have enough room on my table to hold a small group without having to "dump" stuff everywhere. So imagin half of this table being covered... and the other half clear.
I know not perfect but it's a start right?For the coming week, I plan to work on organizing the area that has "stuff" on it. I will be throwing away magazines/catalogs and "mail" that I do not need. Papers that have a hanging clipboard will go on that clipboard. 

So there it is... my week in review. I feel good about the way I'm going...

  2. I haven't picked a day to give up my Dr. Pepper. I thought about cutting down to just one can a day, but haven't done it just yet.
