6) Plan menus weekly menu before grocery shopping

7) Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night

8) Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day

9) Forgive myself when I don't follow my plan "perfectly"

My plan is to focus on one item each month until it becomes a habit, then I focus on the next item. That way I won't become so overwhelmed and each habit will become ingrained in my life. June 2014 my focus was on getting at least 10 minutes of exercise a day not matter what. I did not reach that goal so it is time to forgive myself and try again.

I got a new job in July so my focus has been there for the past couple of months.

It is now September 9, 2014. My goal this month is to set a 30 day streak of at least 10 minutes of exercise a day and to track my progress on the SparkPeople fitness tracker. My plan is to walk my dog, Libby, every day. That way both she and I get our exercise in. She really loves to go on walks and I don't want to disappoint her.

My Fastrack goals are:

1) Eat a healthy breakfast: 1 x / day
2) Walk my dog: 1 x / day
3) Read from a motivating story or book each day : 1x / day

One day down, 29 to go.
