The rest of the month daily challenges:

Tuesday Feb 23 - Find a quotation you find inspiring and share it on the chat board

Wednesday Feb 24 - Make a list of five things you love doing, but don't have enough time for. Share your list on the chat board, and commit to finding time to do at least one of them in the next week.

Thursday Feb 25 - We''re having sugar awareness week here on campus, so let's go there. If you use sugar (coffee, cereal, etc.), cut it in half. No snacks with added sugar.

Friday Feb 26 - Freedom Friday - take a point!

Saturday Feb 27 - Sometime before Monday (extra time for this) share 2-3 song titles for a workout list. They don't have to be on yours--just something that either could be or that you like.

My goals:
1. Accept and be grateful for my body and my metabolism as they are. No feeling sorry for myself.
2. Veggies and protein at every meal. Track on WW purple plan. Try for 14 hours fasting every 24, when possible due to exercise schedule.
3. No guilt when I am unable to stay on plan. When I get off track, get back on ASAP.
