Here is my ever developing strategy from this day forward and through the challenge:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. GOAL met - my sessions are 40 min long and I am keeping it there for now(6/28/16)

Still continuing to get to make 2-9 into habits as of 6/28/16

2. Make a point of checking in on my challenge teams on a more regular basis -- at least 3x per week rather than 1 or no time per week.
3 Read and respond to teammates blogs when time permits.
4. Check Friend Feed and respond on a mostly daily basis.
5. Blog at least once a week on how I am progressing.
6. Become more proactive about planning healthy meals -
7. Make a copy of these strategies and goals so that I can:
8. Review this set of goals daily.
9. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout 2016.


10. Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 6/28/16 - still pushing and getting ever so slowly closer to my healthy weight!!!

My Goals:
My goals are simple:
Exercise consistently and reach a healthy weight.

For my Challenges :
accumulate at least 400 minutes of exercise activity weekly.

Include a variety of aerobic exercise, balancing exercises daily and strength training striving for no less than 3x per week for no less than 20 min per session.

    Life is real.
    Life is how you feel.
    Life is how you live.
    Life is what you give.
    Life is what you take.
    Life is making a mistake.
    Life is and can be hard.
    Life is how you play your card.
    Life is how much you love.
    Life is how much you will improve.

    "A house becomes a home when you can write "I love you" on the furniture."
    I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things
    were just perfect "in case someone came over" Finally I realized one day
    that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!
    NOW, when people visit, I don't have to explain the "condition" of my home.
    They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing
    while I was away living life and having fun.
    If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice.
    Life is short. Enjoy it!

    Dust if you must....... but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon or plant a seed, ponder the difference between want and need?!
    Dust if you must, but there's not much time . . .. . with rivers to swim and mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.

    Dust if you must, but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes,
    the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
    This day will not come around, again.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind. .. . ..
    And when you go - and go you must - you, yourself will make more dust!
    It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived ...
    and remember, a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.
