30 Day Challenge For Orgainization And Setting Goals
Members Were Sparked
My most helpful secret is keeping a "to-do" list to stay organized, I used to make it way too hard, but if kept simple, and taking baby steps to reach my goals every day, it has become not only easy, but do-able without failure.
If you would like more information on learning to set some goals and doing & keeping a "carefully crafted, diligently maintained to do list" here is a link to a free challenge: http://www.chalenejohnson.co m/30daychallenge

The President's Challenge (www.presidentschallenge. org) is another set of challenges available for FREE. Begun in the 1960s, it has been available for years. (Presidential Fitness Award, Physical Fitness Test, Presidential Active Lifestyle Award - PALA, or Presidential Champions) The Adult Fitness Test measures aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, & body composition. PALA goals are 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 6 of 8 weeks (or 8,500 daily steps).
For the Champions Award, you earn activity points (sound familiar?) for a bronze, silver, gold, or platinum award.
Take time to review your medium- and short-range goals. Keep them fresh and exciting. If you're close to a goal weight, or you're tired of focusing on the scale, set an unusual or challenging fitness goal -- train for a 5K race, take up a new sport or activity (spinning, archery, bowling, skating), or see how many push ups you can do after a month of practice. Keep your non-food rewards interesting and relevant to the season and your current interests. Challenge yourself and reward yourself!
