3 in 30 challenge week 2 update

3in30 I'm In!!

This has been such a fun filled week!  I am excited about where I'm heading. 

Last week, I think I mentioned that I had to do a little change to my savings goal (Goal # 3)  to get my husband's vision and mine to match up a little closer.  My overarching savings goal is VACATION.  I want to go to sunny and warm California with our little guy for a fun filled week of LegoLand, San Diego Zoo, Knott's Berry Farm, and time on the beach and in a pool.  Hubby wants a new car.  In all fairness, his car is a dinosaur but it reliable and we just spent a few hundred dollars making it run well and safe so I think he's good for a few more months.  I really wanted to do car buying the Dave Ramsey way but he really wants a nice ride.  Since he's put up with this car for so long I want to get him what he wants. 

Goal # 1 was go give up soda.  I am doing really well on this challenge.  I did have a diet cherry limeade from Sonic last weekend but don't classify that as a soda.  Still struggling to get enough water but am getting better. 

Goal #2...getting to the gym and running.  I have been 3 days so far this week.  I took tuesday off so I could go to the blazer game with a girlfriend.  My plan is to go tonight because if I don't then I get to go in the morning.  I really like lazy mornings at home but I am going to do what it takes to make this goal.  I still haven't started running but found a program I want to do.  I'll report that progress next week.

So that's where I am.

Hope you are having a successful time at meeting your goals.


  1. I'm impressed that you have been able to give up soda. That's one of the most difficult habits for me to break. Perhaps that can be one of my goals in future months as part of the 3 in 30 challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Aren't budget and finance talks the worst?? *shudder* I don't like it at all!!

    And I LOVE that you took your goals out of order.
    Makes me happy.

  3. I only wish we could plan a vacation like that. I am a horrible saver, but our one income really keeps it difficult anyway with six kids! Good luck!
