Don't mean to be gross, but, I'm proud of myself for finally gargling with warm salt water & for how much it helped! Have had a bad cold for the last few days. emoticon

Almost eight weeks straight with my original three mini habits. I'm noticing a difference in my knees. Added a fourth mini habit as of Jan 1. That habit is to get rid of AT LEAST one thing a day.
Exercise streak still going strong - working on week 222. Finally was able to take my reward for four years. Gold's Gym finally started a convenient location for me. I signed up and will start going at least one day a week starting next week. I want to use the incline tread mills so when I hike out of Florida I'll be in better shape. Also plan on using weight machines. The whole complex is not up and running. When it is, will look into their classes.
Have got some nice hikes lined up including the one I'm leading later this month plus the pre-hike.

Working with book, "Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Result" by Stephen Guise. I've got three "habits" I'm trying to develop and already have over two weeks. (Tracking with SparkPeople, an Android App, and stars on a calendar.) Have a reward chosen for four weeks. After starting and maintaining my exercise streak (now at 216 weeks), I am confident of being able to stay with the mini habits.

My knees don't like certain things (like steps) so one of my mini habits are a short routine of knee stretches. I'm trying to develop mindfulness, so another of my mini habits is a minimum of five minutes of meditation. The final mini habit I'm working on right now is writing an entry in my Gratitude Journal. I bought my journal in 1998. I thought I was only using for that year. Instead, I use small post-its to add additional year entries. It has been hit or miss for me to use it but I love looking over previous entries. The journal I'm using is, "The Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude" by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Starting Jan 1st. I'm going to add a fourth mini habit. It will be to get rid of a minimum of one item each day.

Exercise streak is now over four years. Plan to join a fitness club for reward. There are strong rumors that Gold's Gym will be opening at a convenient location. I'm waiting a bit to see if that happens.
