Wait, what? It's April already? The months are flying by so fast!

I've had my One Word for 2015 for 3 full months now. To see the original One Word post and January and February updates, click HERE.

My goal is to always be transparent with you. So here's how I did in March with my One Word, water.

1) Drinking water - The first 2 weeks of March, I did great. I drank 80-100 ounces of water each day and only had soda on Friday and Saturday. I stuck to my plan and it was going wonderful. Then the second 2 weeks of March, uh, yea, I did awful. I was really wanting a Pepsi on a Monday. So I thought, okay, just 1 little Pepsi and it'll be fine. I don't think I've stopped since. I've had a Pepsi almost every day. My water intake has been around 40 ounces, no where near my goal.

I've been so thirsty the past week or so. I just couldn't get enough to drink. Then I realized just the other day that it's because I've been drinking so much soda and not enough water. For 10 weeks I was consuming crazy large amounts of water, then suddenly stopped. My body was letting me know by making me really thirsty. So today {it is April 1st as I type this} I am getting back to my water goal and cutting back on the Pepsi...again. Pray for me?

2) Living Water - I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying my quiet time before bed each night. Pausing to reflect on my day so that I can think of something to be thankful for, it has taught me so much about myself, my family and how I spend my time and where I put my energy. I love reading a short devotional and Scripture from Duck Commander Devotional for women. It helps me to keep my thoughts on the Father before falling asleep. I've also continued with my 1pm quiet time using the  She Reads Truth app.

My morning quiet time, that has been different. For the first 10 or so weeks of this year, I was really diving into the Word as normal. I even went back to journaling my prayers. But a couple of weeks ago, about the same time my water intake had slowed down, I began to struggle with my morning quiet time. I struggled to get out of bed each day and while I still read the Word, my prayers seemed rushed and lacked passion. I kept forgetting to share with my accountability ladies in my Morning Reflections group. So right now I am trying really hard to go to bed a few minutes earlier each night and get myself up and into the Word each morning.

I'm learning that it's okay to mess up. And it's okay to have someone push you back to where you need to be. For me that's been YOU! Knowing that I am going to share with you wonderful people how I am doing helps me to stay on track.

How are you doing with your One Word, New Year's Resolution or goals for 2015? If you've fallen behind or given up, it's ok. You can see how I've messed up! Just get back to it. The key is to keep pressing on. Do you have someone to help you stay on track? Share your experiences in the comments, I'd love to see how you are doing!
