TIM3 Problem

I’m having a lot of problems with timer 3. What I’m trying to simply do now is remap TIM3 to the leds and have the blue led stay one for 1sec and the green to stay on for 1.5sec. Now when I tried to do this the leds didn’t turn off. I saw if I did the operation twice it appeared to worked the second time. So now I turn the timer on wait 2sec and turn it off and it seems to work except when it overflows it turns the leds on then stops. Is there a warmup required for the timers, this doesn’t seem like the correct solution. In other tasks I’ve been working on I keep having issues with TIM3, especially not working the first time. I have attached my current code with delay and I would like to remove the delay if possible. I think the second part of the overflow and staying on is doing what I said. Is there a way to stop the counter before turning the leds back on?

Thanks so much Chris.
