OK! I am ready to join in the pack Howl! My goals are:
1) lose an affenpinscher (7-9 pounds). (Here’s a famous affenpinscher, Banana Joe, at Westminster.)

2) walk the puppy dogs 6 days per week. emoticon
3) do yoga (and/or PT stretches) 5 days per week. emoticon
I also am just starting back to work, and have a goal to put in at least 10 hours per week on professional projects. I feel so thankful to be at this point where I have the physical and mental fortitude to work again… also kind of terrified, since I really have not been up to doing this up until now, and I don’t want to overdo it and cause myself a setback, and I really want things to go well. I hope that you Dog Motivators will wish me luck!
Oh, and one other goal: get a nice haircut so I don’t look quite so much like I’m trying to win a Lhasa Apso lookalike contest.

That pic looks so much like me, it's scary! Maybe I should wait and dress up as a Lhasa Apso for Halloween!
ROTTIELOVE, your new pup is adorable! Post more pics, please! And good luck to all with your Howl-o-ween goals!!!

I would like to commit to losing 6 pounds by Howl-oween. I have also committed through written goals at work, to focus more on obedience training with my Malinois puppy who is now almost 7 months old! This will get me outside with more activity too. I would like to have the puppy ready for on and off leash obedience title by mid-2018.

I decided to continue with the 5% Fall Challenge. I wasn't going to sign up again, but thought I might regret it if I don't. I will be cleaning the 2 spare rooms in our house. I need to take the screens off the windows, hose them off, and also clean the windows. Just odds and ends like that. Hubby will help me when he can.

I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, so I know Fall is going to be here way too fast.

If I don't start now....! emoticon

We're almost 60 days away from Halloween. I'm still clinging to the last days of Summer, but I'm also trying to think where I want to be by the holidays. (And what I'll need to fit into by Christmas!)

Anyone else want to post some goals, support each other, & start getting ready for upcoming HOWLidays?

Some people are doing Spark's 5% challenge. You can work on that, informal goals or whatever works for you, including maintaining. emoticon emoticon emoticon
