My mini goal plan is really working. I am finding myself reaching for water over other drinks all day long. I am more regular with my supplements but still need work in that area.

I have been walking and reaching my goals until the flu set in, so once I am able to breath again, I will start walking once more. I find that I miss the extra time to myself.

I had a great first weight in, and I wasn't "number" worrying like I used to since I only allow myself to get the scale out at the end of my mini plan. I'm keeping that goal, it keeps me on my toes more.

My support team has been wonderful, and I hope I have returned the favor as well.

So what is the next set of mini goals? The first goals are still in place, but I am adding:

1. Trying to stay away from white flour products. By this I mean, not completely taking them from my diet, but in moderation. I don't want to live without pasta for the rest of my life, I just want to be much smarter in my choices.

2. More salads. I really have to increase my veggie intake. It has not been a strong point in my life, but its time to make that change now.

3. Once, I am better, which should be in another few days, (I don't bounce back as fast as when I was younger) I would like to increase my steps to 10,000 a day. 7500 was easy in the end.

4. Be a great spark friend to those on this journey with me.

I think that is enough for this 2 week mini plan. I will weigh in again in 14 days from today.

If anyone stops by, thank you. I only wish health and happiness to you while you are on this wonder journey we call life.

Be safe,

Okay, this is the one millionth time of starting once again. I am 53, and I can do it. Not for anyone but myself.

I am planning to do mini goals, because my main goal is so overwhelming I can't see straight. For the next 14 days, my goal is to drink all my water and walk using my striiv at least 7500 steps a day.

I have re-read the Spark Book and feel motivated once again. So please, pray for me to stay strong and I will do the same for all those who are in the same position that i am.

I want to thank my friends who have agreed to stick with me on my journey, I love them and I hope that by my staying strong it will help them as well.

Sorry I know this is not so interesting, but its from my heart.

If you stopped by to read this, thank you. Good luck on your journeys as well.
