Week 4- Reading the One Year Chronological Bible

So this weeks goal is a daily reading. A couple of times I have started reading the One Year Chronological Bible but I've never stuck with it for very long. So I decided to give it another try but to take out one of my primary obstacles, I started on Monday which is 25 days in and I told myself that's okay, and then I feel asleep before reading the last paragraph on Tuesday night and again, I told myself that's okay. I am trying to go back and read a bit of the first 24 days of readings after finished the daily reading to catch up. I often forget how exciting the book of Genesis is so I've really been enjoying the reading the past few days. I started with Jacob and Esau being reunited and then moved on to Judah and Joseph (Jacobs sons)...good stuff!

And for last week I did eventually set myself a goal but it's not really one that has to be done daily. I am writing out my full weeks menu and shopping list so that I can go to the store once at the beginning of the week and get all the food I need to make dinner at home each night (that there are not other plans taking us out of the house) and also to have our fruits on hand.

So here is some rambling on everything so far:

1- Water and Fruit--Doing pretty good but still room for improvement. Thankfully a friend has shared with me about a great way to take care of getting all the good stuff from fruits and vegetables even if I don't eat them all. It's called Juice Plus. It's all the nutrients from lots of fruits and vegetables in a capsule. I am super excited about this nutritional addition to my daily regime and I am planning to share it with my parents as I happen to know my dad could use a super easy way to add lots of nutrition to his diet, so Mom is you are reading this I can't wait to tell you all about it!!!

2- Daily Flossing - My dentist will be so proud!!

3- Weekly Meal Planning and Shopping- Well I did it this week :-)

4- Daily Reading- Since Monday I'm at 100% and I am pretty impressed with my 3 day record, hee hee.

So one thing that makes picking attainable goals a bit more interesting is that I don't want to pick goals that are about NOT doing things because that will just make me want to do them. I figure if I add in healthy things that eventually that will start pushing out the bad. We'll see how well that works. Oh and my partner Eric, yeah he only meant he was going to do the water and fruit with me so I'm all alone on my journey. I guess it's a good thing I decided to let this be what I blog about. So if you are reading let me know your out there with a comment so I won't feel so lonely :-)

Until next time....

  5. I think about your fruit and water thing and flossing thing every day. We have been doing the shopping thing for a long time and it really does make things easier. I really like the blog, Brea!

  6. Hi Brea,
    This is your Aunt-in-Law (??!!?)/Aunt Sandra. Are you still doing all these good things? Good goals. I floss daily because my back teeth are all capped and it is very important. A hint - don't drink soda or more than 6 oz. of juice a day and you will be thirsty for more water.

  7. Well, interesting post and amazing stuff here. I enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks for sharing....
