Love reading everyone's great goal ideas! Mine are quite modest but maybe this team is what I need to feel more motivated to reach 'em!

1. Consistently do 30 minutes of cardio every day but Sunday
2. Get enough nutrients in my daily meals without obsessing over the Tracker! I tend to miss on carbs and protein, AND I get discouraged when I keep missing!
3. Enjoy the holiday season events more than necessarily all of the food treats

For now, I think that's it. Come New Year's, I may have more spiritual goals -- but today's a bright sunny day here, so I guess I am focussing on the physical. lol!

Greetings, Team!

My goals for the dark time! They are modest...and if I exceed them, all the better!

* Go outside for at least 15 minutes per day.
* Meditate for at least 10 minutes per day.
* Eat five to nine fruits and vegetables per day.
* Walk at least two miles three times per week.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

return to tracking all nutrition and exercise every day

back to 15 minutes of yoga every day

walking and meditation 30 minutes a day (probably twice, 15 minutes each time)

I have been slipping and allowed stress to reverse most of my weight loss; believe this is a good plan to reverse the cycle.

Hey, a word for the day: decrapifying.

Thanks, jespah! It's just what I needed.

Hmm

A lot of the working out and tracking I already do.

So -

* At least one weekend day of serious walking or snow shoveling (if necessary). Serious as in over an hour.
* Keep SAD at bay by writing like a fiend, keeping in the sun as much as possible and taking St. John's Wort if needed.
* Work on adding more efficiency to my life, either by decrapifying or clearing away what I don't need or whatever. I want things to run as smoothly as possible, and they run pretty smoothly already, but I want them to be even better.

Begin each day with yoga & prayer.
Sometimes I will get my heart pumping, and sometimes I will simply get my body stretched and moving. Either way, I begin focused on my health and well-being, and I begin with intention.

Do *AT LEAST* 10-30 mins of cardio every day.
Whether I take an hour-long hike, do a Spark video, take a walk, whatevs, I move, I sweat, I make my heart work for a living.

Strength Training before bed.
For November, I'm doing 20 pushups and 20 crunches each night. In December, I'll add 10 more. I'm more concerned with creating this habit than increasing reps right now. Once fully established, I'll begin adding on in small increments each week. (this is in addition to my other ST too)

Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day, and more when I exercise hard.

Eat fruit and/or veggies with every meal.
This is really helping me make sure I get my 5-8 svgs a day. Yum!

Remember to track food, water, fitness, fruits/veggies every day.

Get 7-9 hrs of sleep a night.
I'm so much happier when I've slept, and I'm so much more likely to make good choices. So this one should really be at the top of the priority list.

Schedule *at least* 3 hours a week for writing projects.

~*~ Nicole ~*~

Wishing you some sort of success every day, and the ability to always see your blessings.

This is the place to state what you want to do between now and the end of the year, whether they be "measurable" goals, being consistent with one thing that will make a difference, and/or....
