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

1. Increase my strength sessions to 25 minutes per session, 3x per week.
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 team mates 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. Keep on pushing no matter what!!!

emoticon and Happy Monday! I hope your day has started your week out emoticon Today's inspiration is by ~Quentin Regestein:

"The... patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Don't take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop. "

So, your challenge is to take charge of your body so you can avoid unnecessary trips to the doctor! emoticon emoticon Have a fabulous week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try

So my challenge to you is to not miss any chance this week because you are not willing to try something. Try new things and be happy! emoticon emoticon because you are emoticon emoticon emoticon

They say the people who exhibit the most kindness
have experienced a lot of pain.
The ones who act like they don't need love
are the ones who need it more.
The ones who take care of everyone else
need care the most.
And the people who smile
may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.
