My Personal Progress Challenge

I've set a personal challenge for myself, to see how much progress I can make by New Years Day. This is not about being perfect, or even about reaching a certain number on the scale. (I haven't weighed myself in over a year, and I have no plans to weigh myself again anytime soon.)

For me, this challenge is about just doing my best every day, and realizing that some days will be better than others. Its about realizing that there will be times when I will fall off the wagon...and knowing that I will pick myself right back up when that happens!

As of today, there are 103 days until New Years Day. Its exciting to imagine how much progress I can make in that time! When New Years Day rolls around, I won't need to make a resolution, because I'll already be doing the things I need to do! For the next 103 days (and beyond!) I plan to track my food and to eat as healthy as possible. I plan to exercise and to move more, sit less. I know the holidays will bring temptations, and there may be times when I give in to them. But as of today, I feel strong and determined, and I am just going to take it one day at a time.

If you'd like to join me and challenge yourself to see how much progress you can make in the next 103 days, great! I'd love to have some company on this journey! Drop in on my page from time to time to let me know how you're doing, and we will do this together!
