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!!!

Include a variety of aerobic exercise, balancing exercises daily and strength training striving for no less than 3x per week for no less than 20 min per session.

    ~~}*{~~ emoticon ~~}*{~~MY LIFE~~}*{~~ emoticon ~~}*{~~

    I'll go out there and make my mistakes. I'll fall down,
    get hurt, cry, laugh, love, and get back up.
    I'll stand on the highest mountaintop and go into the deepest caverns.
    I'll roam across the world, visit the moon and swim in outer space.
    I'll let my imagination run wild and let my spirit soar.
    Because when my life flashes before my eyes in those final moments,
    I want to have something worthwhile to watch, with plenty of love and laughter,
    good times and bad. I don't want to regret a thing and I plan not to.
    Remember, it's not usually the things you do that you regret,
    it's the things you don't do and leave unsaid. Laugh out loud.
    Cry in the rain. Love with all your heart and soul. Get hurt.
    Tell the truth. Go crazy. But never forget that you only get one shot.
    One shot at this day, one shot at this minute.
    One shot at this age. One shot at life.
    So make sure your life is one you will enjoy watching in your final moments.
