Thanks! Until you replied to this, I had completely forgotten that I actually got something done 10 days ago!

Good for you for cleaning out the closet and doing the floors. Those are big jobs! And the accomplishment of getting your quilt off the frame must really feel good, too.

I had a small piece of birthday cake today at my grandson's 10th birthday party, but I watched what I ate all day long and so that didn't "hurt" me any. We've just got to keep these goals foremost in our minds at all times -- whether it's diet, exercise, cleaning the house, or whatever we need to feel better about ourselves.

way to go!!!!! emoticon I got One closet cleaned and the bathroom floor stripped and re-polished. I am about to get a quilt off the frame. My workshop froze over the Holidays and I am waiting for it to thaw out before starting on next Christmas out there.

Today is the frist day of the rest of your life make it count.

Today I'm going to lose some weight -- I'm going to throw out newspapers and paperwork that have been accumulating in my house!
After I'm finished, I'll probably have to have help pushing the recycle bin out to the curb!

I've been determined to take regular walks again, at least 4 to 5 days a week. I've been walking around my neighborhood for the past couple of weeks, but today I drove to the city park and walked there. What a nice change in scenery! We've had a change in weather, too, so it was a perfect morning for a walk.

I apologize for not replying to this post earlier.

Yes, some teas are diuretics, though, and depending on which study you read, drinking too much tea may not be good for your body while dieting. That's why I think I should drink more water than tea. But drinking tea is certainly much better than not drinking enough liquids, in my book!

How are you doing on your Christmas angels? And I hope you've been having fun and enjoying life! Great goals!

Isn't tea made from water? My goals for the coming year. Get two shows under my belt. Help out with the grand kids. Teach two classes. Workout every day for 30 minutes. Design new angels for Christmas. Make new Angels for Christmas. Have fun and enjoy life as much as I emoticon can.

Today is the frist day of the rest of your life make it count.

My goal today was to drink 8 glasses of water. If I change that to 8 glasses of liquids, I made it. I drank a lot of tea today, in addition to several glasses of plain water.

Picklemire -- Yesterday I attended my youngest grandson's 6th birthday party. My goal yesterday was like yours -- stay out of the birthday cake!

Luckily for me, they served yukky-looking cupcakes with gobs of icing that were not appealing to me at all. So at least I met my goal yesterday by not eating the cupcakes.

I have 3 goals 6 out 7 days a week:
1. Drink 80 oz
2. Write down everything I eat
3. Exercise 20 - 30 minutes

I find these goals do-able and keeps me on the right path. I like the Body For Life strategy and in the past I lost 40# total (2004 - 2006) and in the subsequent years I've gained back 20#, which I don't consider too bad, since I'm still 20# ahead. emoticon

I'm going out to eat with friends again tonight. I need to make sure I stay within my calorie range, too. Maybe a wine with my meal, but not a Margarita with salt!
I've been eating fewer and fewer carbs for the past couple of months, and I'm trying to keep limiting those.

I've been really bad lately about setting goals for the day. Mainly trying to just make it through, and get as much done as I can. So much for my schedule being lighter now that I'm retired... Not.

This one is in the "More" category.
Every time I allow myself to try out a new computer game, I become addicted. Big time.
During the first week of August my oldest daughter showed me how to play Spider Solitaire. What a mistake to take a peek at that game! I became hopelessly addicted to it, after finally kicking the habit of playing regular Solitaire and Bounce-Out.
Today is Day #7 of not playing Spider Solitaire, and believe me it has been very hard for me to not hit that link. Last night I was especially drawn to play a game (or more, which is the big problem), but I didn't succumb.
So my goal for today, one day at a time, is to resist playing Spider Solitaire.
