Want to re-start this thread with challenges~?

I'm prone to overdo it and need to focus on the '10 minutes a day' ~

Eileen -- great suggestions! I'm amazed that you managed that streak for over a year! I'm usually great about veggies, but I do still have those days where I only get 3-4 servings instead of 5+!

I have gotten off track in some many ways.

My challenge to myself for the rest of September--
Journal food every day.
Exercise a minimum of four days/week (lost my streak of 72 weeks over summer).
Track my calories most work days.
Start building a new Fruit & Veggie 5/day streak. (I made it to over 410 day before letting it go.)

I gained back some of my weight--I have a goal to get to 130 pounds by 1/1/12.

Idea for a September Challenge: Walk outside for 10 minutes 4 times a week.

Thoughts?

It's always a good idea to challenge yourself...so what better way than setting up a few team challenges? I'm going to aim to have a challenge every month, assuming we all have the interest in doing it. Starting small, here are a few ideas for monthly challenges:

1. Track everything you eat at least 5 times a week for the month of _______;
2. Get outside for some good old-fashioned exercise at least 1 hour a week for the month of;
3. Paddle in at least one new place for the month of;
4. Try at least one new healthy recipe for the month of.

Let me know what you think, and share your own ideas for team challenges!

Thanks,

Falon
