Not a bad idea on both. I think I want to make it a month rather than a week though (30 days is what is cited as the time to make a habit). Folks can do more if they'd like but you change one thing every month, think of where you could be a in couple year!!!

"Food is not love, comfort, or an anxiety pill."
Time to stop trying to solve things with food (lack of included) that food won't solve. Food solves one thing: bodily hunger.
I like the "one nice thing a week for yourself" goal. I agree we usually focus on everything except for ourselves. My hours at work changed a few months ago, so I find myself getting up at 4:00 am. My one thing nice (well actually two) is sleeping in to 6:00 am on Sat & Sun.
As for the team, I think a goal of changing one eating or one exercise habit (is habit a good word for this??? not sure, but I think you know what I mean) per week. For instance, instead of just shaking out as much parm cheese you like on your pasta, actually measure it, or forgoing the cheese entirely. Changing butter to something like SmartChoice (I actually like the SmartChoice, and I don't feel guilty using it). Adding 5 minutes to your work out, or a few extra sit ups.
We can have a post... What have you changed/added this week?

I like the goal of doing something nice for ourselves. It's something we usually don't do often enough. I've been trying to set some mini goals to help me break through a very long-lasting plateau and I think it's a good strategy for me...it might not be useful for everyone though.
