It's been a little over a month since I began my One Word for 2015, so time for a monthly update. {If you'd like to read about my One Word, click HERE.}

One Word 2015 February Update! #OneWord2015 #LivingWater

1) Drinking water - I set a goal of drinking 80-100 ounces of water a day, as well as having no soda except for Saturday and Sunday. I had to change my 'soda days' to Friday and Saturday. The little fast food joint I love getting soda from isn't open on Sundays. So I swapped days.

I've had good days where I've easily hit my goal. Then I've had a few days where it wasn't so easy. I can honestly say, a few days I've been stuck at 60 ounces of water. For the most part I haven't really craved Pepsi, not like I used to. When I do start craving it, I try to drink a full glass of water. That normally helps curb the craving.

I've been using the app Waterlogged to help me keep track. It's a great tool that helps me remember. I can look back on the day and see how much more water I need to drink.

I keep pressing on, carrying my Tervis tumbler with me every where I go and drinking as much as I can!

2) Living Water - I want to get into the Word more than just in the morning time. I've been using the She Reads Truth app. I can't tell you how much I love this app! Incredible reading plans that give you the Word of God and great encouragement. Two of the plans I have finished and love are the Open Your Bible 14 day plan, and the Hymns 5 day plan. She Reads Truth also offers cute images to share on social media. I have a reminder set on the app each day at 1pm and it works out great for me. A few days I've read the Scriptures and devo while in line at the grocery store or sitting at my boys' basketball practice in the parking lot.

I am reading the Duck Commander Devotional for women before bed each night. Each day gives 1 Scripture verse and a short devo. Perfect for before bed reading and I love that I am getting the Word and encouragement before falling asleep. I've stayed consistent with this and it has been a blessing!

I am loving have 3 times of Bible reading and encouragement each day. It also gives me that reminder to pray and give thanks to God.

How are you doing with your One Word, New Year's Resolution or goals for this year? If you've fallen off the wagon, so to speak, it's okay! Just get back to it. Share your experiences in the comments, I'd love to see how you are doing!

  1. Congratulations! Great ideas, too! Every year I did the "One Word", I felt as if that was the area I did the worst - lol. I am cheering you on! I found you on the W2W linkup :)


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
