My goal is to get going back to my weekly workout class at the Y. I've intended to go the past two weeks, but have not made it. I will plan ahead better to get there next Tuesday.

Sandy, Did you see the study where they are showing that calcium supplements may increase heart trouble? I have not quit taking my calcium citrate, but I only take half the recommended daily dose. For the environment, though, I am trying to cut back on dairy products (I love Greek yogurt and Swiss cheese for protein), so I need to get more calcium from greens, I guess.

It can be difficult to stay focused on where you want to be in 6 months, a year, or 5 years from now -- sooner or later, no matter how excited we are about beginning our new program to become more healthy, we tend to lose that initial "drive" to make the changes that need to be made. That's why it's important for us to set interval goals that are realistic and achievable in a shorter period of time. I find it a whole lot easier to tell myself that "today I am going to be sure to drink at least 64 ounces of water" than to say that I'm going to do it every day for the next year!

To that end, tell us what your goals are for the current month, with updates on your progress however often you like -- you can post daily, once a week, wait until the end of the month, or whatever.

It also might help to keep this Spark People quote in mind:

A setback is when you slip up, get busy or become distracted from your goals. Failure is when you decide your health isn't worth the effort.

Let's take one day at a time -- our health IS worth the effort !
