I agree with Susan. I am a night owl and am trying to get in at least 6 or 7 straight hours of sleep. I am in menopause ,so all those hot flashes wake me up, so my goal is sleeping straight through to 6 or 7 and eventually making 8 or even 9 ? [those were my single days a LOOONG time ago! :)
I have a goal of 30 min a day to exercise ,but I think I need to start at 10 every day to be consistent.
Tracking every day for me is a BIG goal and one that I want won for myself ! {pun intended !}.
Still trying for the 8 glasses of water . Have made slow progress~ up from originally 4 then 5 then 7 today !
I find at this season of my life ,I DO have to restart with the baby steps as I am way overwhelmed with Homeschooling and housework and we just moved 6 mos. ago across the country!! I know I CAN DO THIS ! I have done it before {although my son was 2 and I wasn't Homeschooling at the time. Had ALOT more time on the computer. Now it is as catch can.Anyway, I want to end on a good note so I am going to bed to get some sleep. Oh, why am I up late ~ getting all the homemade cards and gifts ready for tomorrow's craft fair to give to some of the moms teaching the co-ops we have enjoyed and the lady in charge of our Homeschool group who is doing an awesome job!

Your goals are great. We haven't done much with these team goals here. I've never messed with them. . . they were set by the original team leader, three or four leaders ago. Let's start a team a discussion about what we'd like our health goals to be as a team. (I'm MUCH more on-board with the 10 minutes exercise thing). Our goals are so different when we're caring for so many people! Look for a new thread and a team message about this! Thanks for bringing it up!

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

Baby steps, SUSANSKI. =) I cannot remember the last time I got 8 hours of sleep either. It seems like even when I go to bed early, it seems like someone gets up in the night.

So here's the thing. Our team goal is 8 hours of sleep...but I'm lucky to get 3 straight hours because I am on call throughout the night to help with my Mom who is staying with us. I actually have a goal recorded of only THREE hours! My goal for water is FOUR cups, (I'm getting better, though) and my goal for exercise is only 10 minutes while I rebuild by momentum. But I've been a REALLY REALLY REALLY good girl. Can't ya'll work with me?
