Here is my ever developing strategy from this day forward and through the challenge:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. GOAL met - my sessions are 40 min long and I am keeping it there for now(6/28/16)

Still continuing to get to make 2-9 into habits as of 6/28/16

2. Make a point of checking in on my challenge teams on a more regular basis -- at least 3x per week rather than 1 or no time per week.
3 Read and respond to teammates blogs when time permits.
4. Check Friend Feed and respond on a mostly daily basis.
5. Blog at least once a week on how I am progressing.
6. Become more proactive about planning healthy meals -
7. Make a copy of these strategies and goals so that I can:
8. Review this set of goals daily.
9. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout 2016.


10. Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 6/28/16 - still pushing and getting ever so slowly closer to my healthy weight!!!

Goals revised 1/25/16

    emoticon emoticon WHAT IS YOUR MONEY WORTH? emoticon emoticon
    Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have,
    to impress people they don’t like............Will Rogers.

    Money is not the most important thing in the world. Love is.
    Fortunately, I love money............Jackie Mason

    Many people are so poor because the only thing they have is money.

    Don't think money does everything, or you are going to end up
    doing everything for money.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon The Starfish Story emoticon emoticon emoticon
     
    One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
    a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. 
    Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?"
    The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. 
    The surf is up and the tide is going out.  If I don't throw them back, they'll die."
    "Son," the man said, "don't you realize there are miles and miles
    of beach and hundreds of starfish?  You can't make a difference!"
    After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
    and threw it back into the surf.  Then, smiling at the man, he said
    "I made a difference for that one."
