My goals will be: 1) Continue to stick to the 'Plan' and try at least one new food/recipe every week. 2) Try and do the Strength Training days consistently (I love cardio, strength not so much!). 3) Try and complete my 'To Do' list every week. It's usually pretty long and I am a procrastinator on alot of items that seem to carry over from week to week, even though I feel great when items get ticked off the list. Go figure!
Here's to a successful close to 2010! + + =

I think my three challenges will be: 1 - To make sure I get outside and do my steps every single day - even if I don't feel good or it's raining! 2 - To get at least 2 fruit/veg a day. I know it should be 5, but I figure I might do better if I start small. 3 - Spend more time doing things off the computerbeast. 5 minutes here and there will add up, I hope!
Good luck to everyone in their challenges. Together, we can do anything!
Welcome to the NEW CHALLENGE!!! This one is called "New Year, Less Rear" and it will run (of course) until the end of the year. Or, I guess if we want to get acronym crazy, the NYLR Challenge!
The purpose of this challenge is simple: to carry us through the holidays. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has to deal with Christmas goodies and potlucks at the office, not to mention gatherings with family and friends and your own personal baking. Whether you celebrate Christmas or whether you don't, the treats show up and the willpower takes a back seat.
Well, until this year.
For this challenge I want you to choose three personal challenges to work on. The challenges can be whatever you want them to be - but I would suggest one related to nutrition, one related to fitness and one related to the rest of your life -- but like I said, they can be whatever you want. With one teeny tiny stipulation -- you have to be able to measure them.
Do you need to have a goal you want to hit? Nope. Because you're going to measure these goals every week. Next week, you're going to use the same goals but you're going to try to beat your "score" from the week before. Really THINK about what you want your challenges to be, because they should be achievable and manageable - but they should also push you and make you do things you wouldn't normally do.
Got an idea yet?
Your teammates are here to help you - to encourage you. You don't have to compete against your teammates, but if a little friendly competition is what will help you, then feel free to challenge your teammates to a duel.
No matter what, you will do better this year than you did last year, simply for being mindful of your choices. You have sixty days left in this year (including today because it ain't over yet!). Make them count.
