Reluctantly, I am posting pictures.

I know that my 12 week plan is supposed to be SMART. I will list a few of my goals, but don't want to make them do-or-die requirements. I have so many balls in the air right now, that I don't want to cause unneeded pressure. I know the idea is to set these goals so that I do them, but it will be better for me to WANT to do them than HAVE to do them.
That said, here are some steps towards my success for these 12 weeks:
I will drink at least 8 cups of water a day. This 'easy' thing seems to be difficult for me to remember. I will fill a 20 oz. glass of MiO water, 4x, and leave it on the counter. As I pass by during the day, I will drink or guzzle and immediately refill.
I will remember to take my vitamins by getting them out at breakfast. I can take them whenever, but will take all of them by bedtime.
I will finish the Spark programs that I have signed up for previously. Approximately 10 minute videos should not be so difficult to do during the day. I will treat these as appointments. Do not go to bed until they are done.
That goes for the Running program, also. Complete before the Women's 5K Classic.
Do cardio at least 20 minutes per day. That can be danciing with my GD, walking DVD, treadmill, rebouncing on the trampoline while watching TV, but I will do something. I'll give myself 1 day of rest.
Reward: Just for doing this challenge, I have already purchased a foam roller and an instructional DVD for it. My muscles have been aching lately, and the reviews I've read say that a foam roller is a wonderful way to massage those muscles.
I've also purchased a few DVDs to help with my motivation. I WILL use these, not just as dust collectors.
I WILL learn to love exercising. If not for myself, at least I'll log points for my team!
