I am back from an SP hiatus too. I chose easy goals so I don't completely fail during this holiday week. Mine are 1) drinking only water (even if I don't make it to 8 cups a day) 2) not watching more than 1 hour of TV a day (a challenge since I work from home/will be off this week and 3) collecting a motivational picture each day (hello Pinterest!). Since it is the middle of the week I will probably switch up my goals on Sunday- so really i just have to do these 3 things for 5 days. I can do it!

My fast break goals are:
1. Exercise 10 minutes a day to get back in the habit.
2. Eat 2 fruits and veggies a day; something I have trouble with even when I stay within my nutritional ranges.
3. Read something motivational each day. This is to remind me to make time for myself and my emotional health too!

That's funny, because I am returning to SP after a long hiatus and also trying the coaching this time around. I actually changed my fastberak goals to make them easier for me to reach instead of harder. I feel like I can use an easy pat on the back right now (eat 2 fruits and veggies, simple!) instead of stretching too much (8 glasses of water a day! I couldn't even do that when I was totally on track!)

Then when I am actually sticking with a week of achieiving my FB goals, I can move on to these other important items.

Kudos for a goal on no snacking! That is tough! Some strategies I've heard are: brushing teeth (and flossing!) after dinner, chewing gum, drinking tea, changing your snacking-time habits. For example, if you usually snack while cleaning up after dinner, maybe try cleaning up at a different time or let someone else do it. Or if you snack while watching TV, watch in a different room or while on a treadmill or read a book for a week instead.

Best of luck, everyone!

I have changed my fast break goals because I feel these new goals will benefit me better in the long run. One of my new goals is to refrain from evening snacking, which tends to be quite a challenge for me. I was hopeing someone could help me discover some strategies to avoid evening snacking since this seems to be quite an issue for me. Any suggestions?

Hi there i'm new to this but after watching the second coaching program today I am all ready to track my fast break goals and stay consistent for the next week.
My three fast break goals are to exercise for 10 minutes each day, drink 8 8oz cups of water every day and to journal at least 3 times for a week.
