Thanks! I need to start writing mine down as I think of them. I'm not a super organized person. emoticon

i think i should also add that when i started sparkpeople i also made out for myself a 3 month goals list and a 6 and a one year mark goal list... My 3 month goal list is almost right on track.. depending on my last weigh and measures on the 31rst.. I am darn close to succeeding!

Most of my daily goals are linked to fast break goals (still) or things that I really want to do. I also have my goals for 2010 which are broken down monthly (on paper/spreadsheet) and I try to refer to them at least monthly to make sure I'm on track. I also usually have a short term fitness goal that I'm working on, that goes into my signature line.

Good Luck!

I think it is important to go with "what works" for you at any given time. We all find our own paths...you may zig and I may zag, but we're all working toward a similar goal: to live a life that is SPARKED! :-)

I try to pick a few goals that would be challenging for me. If working out 10 minutes a day isn't a problem, then why make it a goal? Choose a few things that pose a challenge and really stick to those until you've mastered them. If you set too many goals you'll become overwhelmed by trying to accomplish all of them at once, and then become frustrated and give up.

I try to set myself monthly goals, a couple for fitness, a couple for nutrition, and a couple for lifestyle. About a week into the month I'll see which ones are really working out, which ones may have been too much to ask for as the time, and which ones are way to easy. Adjust according and just know that whatever goal you set, big or small, is a step in the right direction. Good luck!

How do you keep track of all the diet strategies and goals?
I realized today that I never read a few of the fast break strategies. I rushed into stage 2 after only 1 week on SP because I was already in the mindset of being ready for life changes and already practicing most of what was in stage 1.
I don't think most of what I missed will affect me much but I plan on reading all the ones I didn't earn spark points for over and making a point to practice that skill that day.
I notice a lot of people post their goals in their sig lines or blogs. How do you decided which goals to put there?
