Something that TERRIBLY frustrated me in 2011 was how blogging, homeschooling and keeping my home completely took over ALL of my healthy habits. Running on the treadmill and eating right were a huge struggle last year. In previous years, I’ve consistently exercised and I’ve remained on track with the help of my real-life friend Clare – but last year – I was very random. I dropped out of Clare’s class, I randomly exercised, randomly participated in Weight Watchers, randomly did “The Shred” workouts, and randomly over ate!
I’d say stress is to blame for my inconsistencies…and that stress has also led to me being a less than Gentle Mommy. So as I work on the Gentle Mommy Challenge and my Ephesians study…I am going to be chiming into Clare’s Free Accountability 31.3 forum. This is Clare:

• 31 days
• 3 commitments
• Jumpstart your year
Want to know the 3 commitments? Glad you asked!
1.) Eat Clean
I’m sure you’ve heard of this before. It’s a term used often yet is defined differently from person to person! Eating clean eliminates foods that are highly processed, complex and comprised of many ingredients. Think FRESH, SIMPLE and NUTRIENT-RICH.
2.) Move More
Sounds simple, right? This will look totally different for each of you. Some of you do nothing. Some of you are hit or miss each week. Others are pretty consistent. I want you to move more these 31 days and move more, consistently.
3.) Renew Daily
There’s no doubt in my mind that our physical lives are connected with our spiritual lives. Many of you who have been struggling with weight loss, self esteem, or depression are missing an important connection—the body and spirit. Our bodies will die. In the long scheme of things, these 31 days are just a blink in light of eternity. Our spiritual lives are going on forever and we can’t forget about this. I believe you’ll find better results and more fulfillment if you keep this in line. Renewing ourselves both mentally and physically is essential to success!
