I was working on #5, which for me was getting to bed consistently for a week. I made it half the time anyway. Not so good, but not so bad either.

I wrote #3 & #4, but I actually meant #2 and #4. I did pretty well this week. Got to the gym 6x for at least 45 min of activity and stayed in my calorie range for the whole week.

I do 1 and 4 without much trouble. I don't really enjoy exercising so I will try to ENJOY my exercising at least 4 times this week.

The will of God will not take you where the Grace of God cannot protect you.

I will do all them!

#1
#2
#3
#4

I do them any way so should be easy for me.

For #5, my goal is to eat within my fat and protein range. That's always a tough one for me anyway.

Good luck Slowest Losers!

Will do 1, 2, and 4. Although I pretty much already do these It will be good for me to keep working these, especially 4 since I still tend to eat when stressed.

I am good with the first 4. The thing I need to work on is to stop picking between meals and only eating what I have planned. Also, I like to work on only eating at the kitchen table.

Thankyou RUTHXG....I was about to write that too lol....the months are going so fast it is easy to loose them....

Am already 1,2,3,&4....
I think my #5 goal will be to complete the 21.5k half marathon tomorow....I have been dithering as to whether I will actully compete on the day as I am not sure how good my health is however I have my number and my tag and as long as the weather isn't raining or snowing think I WILL walk it with my friend instead of just as her support crew.....
I know this is just something for the day however it would be a great achievement....

I'm already doing #1 without any effort; taking that on as a challenge would be cheating for me. TIP: It's especially easy to get lots of water if you buy yourself a water bottle with a bite valve (for example, a Camelbak bottle). It makes drinking more pleasurable--try it!

So I'll take on #2. Exercise is always my biggest challenge.
