Week 1 of Forget-Me-Nots BSG Challenge--New goals for this month, & progress on Aug. goals.


Monday, September 09, 2013

-I am writing about my progress for on my goals for Aug. I actually succeeded in a few of them:
1. I am drinking 8 (and even more) glasses of water everyday.
2. I am tracking all my food & exercise everyday.
3. I walk & bike everyday, and sometimes both.
4. I was really good at send my team mates a goodie/comment everyday, but I fell behind in that.
5. I have cut down smoking. From 6 to 5 cigarettes a day (not everyday, but 3 or 4 days a week)
6. I do not get 7 hours of sleep a night. I am really bad in that one.
7. Yes, I am getting rid of more things in my apt., and most of them have some kind of very unhappy memories attached to them, so out they go. Boy, is that a good feeling. It is a good feeling also when I can get new (or new to me, as I do most of my shopping at thrift stores/rummage/garage sales) things. It kind of goes with the new & better lif
estyle I have managed to accomplish for myself in the past 16 months. A lot of it has happened after I joined SP. So thank you everyone who has been a part of my life since I have joined. You all have helped more than you will ever know.

My goals for Sept. are much the same, by keeping up the goals I have accomplished and really work on those that I failed at. I also did join the fitness center, and have started there. I was really scared to go that first day. I have never worked on any of those machines, or even walked on a treadmill. Now I have worked on 5 different strength machines, and doing the treadmill. I am working with a great trainer who has a lot of patience with me, and is very, very helpful. I am so happy that I have joined, and it is within walking/biking distance of where I live. Another goal is to keep improving during this month. Hope I can accomplish some of these goals. I will let you know it goes for me.

    Congratulations on achieving so many of your August goals! And good for you to overcome your intimidation about hitting the gym! Weight training is the perfect compliment to all that walking and biking!

    No wonder you aren't around Spark as much...you joined a fitness center. emoticon The one-on-one should be very helpful.

Keep at those goals. You are doing so well on most of them. I had a hard time with the sleep one for quite a while. What got me on the right track was picking two days a week to go to bed early so that I'd get at least seven hours. It took a while, but now my body wants that sleep.

emoticon emoticon Remember there are many of us here cheering you on!

    Good luck with your September goals Barb! You did a great job with your August goals. Unfortunately, I am with you on the sleep front! I know that is one of my big September goals as well!

    You did great in August and I agree that keeping the same goals is a good idea. You know what they say about how long it takes for something to become a habit. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
