Nearly a month into 2016 here are my revised goals

1. Be down 5 or more pounds by the end of Winter.
2. Journal my food every day at least on paper
3. Accumulate at least 600 minutes of activity each week.

Each and every one of these goals is do-able and if they are to be , as the saying goes, it is up to me!!!!


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.
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!!!

    Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly.
