A Goal Update

Now about those goals I had set....

I have gone to the gym twice a week for the past two weeks. (!) And I can run 3 miles in 30 minutes. Yes, you may think that stinks, but when I started I ran 2 miles in 30 minutes. Go me!!

I started reading A Family of Value by John Rosemond. If you have a family you should read it. I like it. A lot. So there. (Thanks for letting me read it Mom.)

I have written at least two blogs a week since I set my goals. (!)

I have learned almost no new Spanish words. But my Mom has lent me some Spanish lessons on cd, which I started listening to in the car. I don't like them yet. But maybe I will learn to. I saw some Mexicans in the laundromat today and thought to myself I should give them some of my Spanish tracts. But that was after I walked past, so I didn't. I would've said, "Yo tengo muchos importante informacion para la vida en JesuCristo. Leer esto, por favor." And then I would hope they wouldn't ask me any questions.

Each week I have taken at least two photos of Josh. My goal was five new photos each week, but this week I have failed that. Two will have to suffice. It is better than none.

So there you go. I think that sums it up. Tomorrow we are visiting the church of some friends of ours. There will be a special speaker speaking on marriage and families. I am excited.

Oh, and I have not accomplished anything new at home this week. That is what happens when you work overtime covering for your friend who went on vacation to California.

Martha said...

Good job pursuing your goals. I can't seem to figure out where I left mine.

3 miles in 30 minutes? I think that is awesome!!

Priscilla said...

I figured that you would be way faster than me simply because of our age difference. When we do the 5k, it is important to remember that we do NOT have to run together. I'd hold you up. Just so long as you cheer me on at the finish.

Rachel said...

You go girl, great job!! I miss seeing your little guy,:( I'm sure he's getting big.

Are you and Aunt Priscilla going to run in a race together? When?

Rachel said...

By the way, I miss you too, but your not growing as fast as Josh AND you won't forget who I am.

I am impressed. You are doing great. I really like your table time. I love seeing all the pictures of you and your family. I live in NM, and I know lots of spanish words, remember I am a Garcia. Taco Burrito nacho, hola, grassias. I say it with an accent too. It's a Texas accent, but it is an accent.

Martha said...

That Kim person sure is impressive. Maybe you should get to know her.

Stephanie said...

Yea Bethy!! Good job!! I am really enjoying seeing you on your blog more often!!I look at it each day and am excited when you post!!

Adam said I need to clarify and say I'm running on the elliptical, cause that makes a difference. I'll have to try on the treadmill this week, so I can be more accurate.

Yes, Aunt Rachel we are going to run the 5k that her church does in August. And we can so run together Aunt Priscilla!!

Hey, when is game night?!?

I don't suppose a pair of black shoes would do? They come in white too...
