Oh, yes! I am learning to eat correctly. In the New Year, I plan to expand on this and learn to eat more protein.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

Looking through the goals that are being set - they seem a big vague to me - good goal setting techniques are the key to success!!
Sparkpeople has a lot of information on goal setting successfully but as a guide:

Overall, your health goals should be:
Realistic: Start off with a goal that isn't too ambitious, so you can sooner experience the thrills of success. Build toward grander goals to keep your motivation high.

Specific: Make sure it can be measured and tracked.

Forgiving: Leave room for the "1 Step Back, 2 Steps Forward" principle to apply.

Crystal Clear: Find a photo depicting or symbolizing what you want. The clearer the point of the whole thing is, the easier it is to stay focused.

Valuable: Remind yourself why you want to succeed in the first place.

Challenging: What do you wish for? This is the goal that will hold your attention the most. There's no reason our wishes can't become our goals.

Rewarded: Every little bit of positive reinforcement helps.

Backed Up: Prepare for the unknown with contingency plans before problems come up. Have options waiting that will help you stay consistent in the face of the unexpected

I will have more on goal setting for success in the newsletter in a few days.

Everyone smiles in the same language.

It seems my goals are the same every year. I want to exercise more and try to keep from deteriorating more than I am. I would also like to lose weight.

I really don't make goals. I just try to do what I can. I don't want to disappoint myself. emoticon

2013 is a New Year - a time to re-assess your goals and priorities - and I am not talking about New Years Resolutions here - but rather the long and short term goals you set for yourself - so I am setting this challenge to give yoiu time to think about where you have come from and where you are going to in regard to your main goal of improving your fitness!

What are your short term goals for January??

What are your long term goals for 2013?
