3 in 30 March Goals!

In case you haven’t heard of 3 in 30, it is basically a large support group geared toward helping people achieve 3 of their goals in 30 days. They began in January, but March is the first month that I’m joining in. So here are my goals for March:

My first goal is to drink more water. I’ve gotten out of this habit and completely fallen back on Diet Coke and I can tell the difference. If I want to be active and lose weight, I need to stay hydrated. I’ve got a nice water bottle in storage, so when we get that out, I plan to use that to keep track of how many ounces of water I’ve had for the day—flylady style. I’ll keep colored bands around the bottle, and every time I fill the bottle up with water, I’ll move a strap up. This way I don’t forget how much I’ve had or try to cheat myself out of the benefits of staying hydrated.

Second on my list is to start walking…another habit I’ve let fall to the wayside. With all the moving and the frustration of getting three little kids ready to go out and being in hotel…well, I just haven’t had the patience to do anything. But now I say, no excuses. Get out and do it! Be a force of Nature (see my other blog!). I want to start by walking 3 times a week.

And last on my list is the most exciting for me. I want to finish my WIP, Dividing Spirits. I mean, finish it completely, editing and all that jazz. I’m on chapter 23 of my big edit/rewrite, which means I have 18 chapters left. After that will be at least one other run through to pick up anything I missed. I plan to devote at least 2 hours, 6 days a week to get this done.

So, who wants to join me? What are your goals for the month? Let's share and keep each other accountable!


  1. Good for you! I am tracking too!:)

  2. What are you tracking? Share! Share!

  3. I shied away from goals that time-limited this year, but you did inspire me to start a 30-30-30 kind of thing. 30 minutes walking, 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes writing each day. I choose the when and the what, but if I keep the TV off when I come home, I easily have that much time for goals. Who knows? It may expand! Go, March!

  4. Woohoo! That's the spirit, Robynn! I definitely think that sounds like an attainable goal. As you get into the routine, you may find you have time for more or something else for April! :)


  5. Thanks for the encouragement to drink more water and walk. I am working on an ebook this month, too. It always takes longer than we plan but we'll get there. :)
