We are looking for new ideas for challenges to start the New Year fresh and strong. We also need to know what to keep and what to let go so we can focus on the good stuff. We like to have a variety of challenges because different people are motivated by different things, but we don't need so many that it feels like work just keeping up with all of the posts. Jump right in and list your ideas.

You can either list the numbers that you want to track or just record that you did the tracking. For instance, I probably won't list how many calories I ate each day, but I will just record that I did track them. Let's try this for a while. If we use it we can keep it, if not we can just scrap the idea.
