I have yet to set any goals for myself. Since I have switched to maintenance mode I have been kind of drifting. I am still eating well and doing all my exercise but I feel something missing. Like I should have become a professional body builder or an underwear model. Maybe I just need to join a new sport or start a new class. I am going to eat my banana now and ponder my place in the world.

Well, considering that, normally for me I am all gong ho at the beginning of the month, then towards the end of it, I fall back to old habits.
This month I am focusing on getting into new routines, eating breakfast, eating lots of fruits and veggies, whole grain and not eating anything that will affect my IBS.
Another focus is exercising at the MINIMUM of 90 minutes a week.
Also, telling my friends and family that I NEED their support, that I don't want to see eye rolling when I chose to eat less, or chose not to eat dessert. They need to understand that I have to lose the weight, or I could quite possibly die at a young age.
Other than that, right now, my focus is on there...next month will be Loving myself...because if you don't love yourself, you can't expect anyone to love you.
Way to go on quitting smoking! Keep trying and use any support you can find. I know it's not easy!
My goals are: 1) Meditate for 15 minutes a day 2)Take a picture for a photojournal every day 3) Eat 4-5 fruits or vegetables per day
I'm starting a whole new job(s) and routine, so I don't want to push too hard just yet and burn out. Next month the routine exercise regime starts again! It's just too much to try and make a routine when things aren't settled right now. But that doesn't mean I can't make other healthy choices.
