31 Days: My Progress

At this beginning of this journey toward intentional living I chose four areas to focus on: health, relationships, home, and heart. I thought I would update you on my progress as a means of encouragement:

Health: As you know I started a twelve week Body Transformation at my local Y. I haven’t missed a class and have been working out habitually two days a week. Tonight and Sunday I plan to work out as well getting my weekly total to four days a week. I would love to be there at least five days a week as I was before but I’m certainly making progress.

Heart: I’ve wanted to continue to cultivate the practice of eucharisteo as well as be more intentional about my time with God. I’ve been linking up on Mondays with A Holy Experience to share my gifts list. This has really been helpful as it’s made me more disciplined about keeping my keeping my list since I have to post about it.

Relationships: One of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time is to be more intentional about my relationships with non-believers. My husband’s new work schedule has been really helpful in this regard since I spend five nights a week at a cigar store. Just this past Sunday we started a missional small group with some of the guys my husband works with and it was amazing.

Home: I feel like this is the area I’ve had the least progress in. I’ve really wanted to work at decluttering, simplifying, and organizing. Since we are nearing the end (I can’t believe it) of the 31 Days I think I will make this more of a focus.

Lisa at Mom, net Mom has also chosen Live Intentional as her 31 Days theme. She wrote a great post that includes an intentional prayer. Be sure to check it out.


  1. Sounds like we have similar ideas! But it sounds like you are having better success. :) For me the difficulty comes not in coming up with the idea but more with the implementation (doing) of the thought/goal.

    I would love to link up to A Holy Experience. I need the accountability. Maybe you would be kind enough share how to do it.

    Looking forward to following your 31 days, and forging ahead together as we learn what it means to Live Intentional.

  2. Lisa, I've actually been really inspired by your 31 Days. You've been incredibly honest and I love that.

    I would be happy to send you instructions for linking up on Mondays...

    The 'accomplishments' I've had have been a long time coming...years actually. Maybe we can figure out a way to team up in this journey and maybe keep each other accountable?
