An extension of doing one nice thing for yourself everyday is to say 3 positive things about yourself daily, or 3 things you like about yourself daily?

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!!!

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'd like to have them all that way!! We do have to be responsible for ourselves and our health but why not have fun along the way? Plus things are much easier when we enjoy them!

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.

A couple of my personal goals are to exercise every day and not skip breakfast.

I wonder if it might be a good goal to do something nice for yourself once a week.

That's what I'm doing too. It seems to work and I think it will stick for the long term.

oh good question. I know I'm trying to work on changing small behaviors, hoping the pounds will follow.

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

What kind of goals would you like to have for this team? I'm really interested in your input before I set them up.
