Shoot for the STARS Challenge

We just completed a week long challenge on our Ninja team. It was really motivating - there was a lot of enthusiasm and friendly competition! It pushed me to exercise much more than I would have normally. My exercise goal this week was 275 minutes and I finished the week with 419! Exceeded that goal by more than a little bit!

The theme of the challenge was about reaching goals. I managed to reach the goals that I had set for myself this week but in retrospect, before this challenge,I haven't been attaining my goals lately. I have an overall picture of where I'm going but I think I lost sight of the smaller picture. I need to focus on my goals for each week - back to those baby steps!

Nutrition has got to be my focus - exercise has gotten fairly routine - I can't imagine having a day without exercise now! That's a PLUS! I did well this week because early in the week, I made a meal plan for the week and stuck to it! I have got to get back into doing that routinely!

I'm going to start reaching for the stars every week! Starting with a firm plan for both nutrition and fitness!

    Grace, this is a quote from Edward Young "Those who build beneath the stars build too low."
So kudos to you for setting new goals and reaching for the stars each week. I know you can do it- no matter what life throws your way. emoticon

    Isn't it fascinating how a little nudge from others is just enough to make us reach further! Thank you for being one of the nudgers! You give an uplift to many who need it....even when you don't get much feedback.

I have surprised myself by how much difference a concrete target makes in performance. Let's keep aiming high!
