Best Year of my Life

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I'm setting out to make this the best and happiest year of my life.

Goal 1: To increase energy by being more active and losing excess weight.

Goal 2: To get organized by clearing clutter, keeping only those possessions that I use or love, and having a place for everything.

SparkPeople will be a big part of reaching the first goal. In the fall I began posting food and exercise. I went on vacation the last week in December, and did not resume posting right away because I wanted to read the book and follow the 28-day program.

I plan to establish a new positive habit every month. This month it is walking daily. I have walked every day since Jan. 3, an 18 day streak so far. I am only walking 20 minutes a day, because the object is to establish the habit, then next month I will begin walking further. Next month my new habit will be to do at least 10 minutes of additional exercise daily, using Coach Nicole's programs.

We are having an unusual amount of rain in California this month. It's great, because we need the water, but it does make walking a bit more of a challenge.

    Those are two of my ongoing goals. I just joined SP and hope it will help with the first one.

    For the organizing, I will try to spend 15 minutes 6 days a week. Sunday is my day of rest and just enjoying relaxing.

    Great goals for the year Darlyne! Walking is one of the best exercises there is and it's good to see you are doing it daily.
