December~ 31Day Feel Better In 2013 Group

This is not a challenge thread per say, but a goal setting thread. Get a head start for the New Year, New You! We are not here to challenge each other, we are here to support each other. Stating a goal or goals for yourself, we can help each other meet them. These goals don’t have to be weight loss; they can be anything you want to do to “feel” better during the month of December. So join in, introduce yourself, state what you want to incorporate into your daily life, then come in daily (if you are able) and tell everyone how you did or how it made you feel inside to do this for yourself.
Suggestions:

Take a daily 20 minute walk
Dance along with a few songs on your Ipod, or the radio
Lose 5 lbs
Take time to get a massage ,or a pedi
Weigh and measure your food portions for a month
Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day

These are just a few that come to mind. So come on, lets start 2013 with a healthy, happy habit to carry through the new year.

For my physical health- my goal for this 31 days is to lose 10 pounds and use my treadmill 40 minutes a day dividing it by 20/20.

For my mental well being I have signed up for a caroling group- something that I used to do every Christmas many moons ago. There is nothing better than getting together with friends and enjoying the Christmas season without the commercialization. Tonight is 1st practice!

Bchickie, thanks for starting the new thread. I love the new goal idea! Months ago, some of us were in "A Time for Us" thread with the same idea -- that we use so much of our time and energy taking care of others and need to make more time for ourselves!

My goals:
  • Continue exercising - cardio, strength, balance, and mind/body
  • Pamper myself - face, nails, hair, etc
  • Maintain weight or lose even just a little
  • Enjoy my new appearance and stamina
  • And, most of all, celebrate the Christmas season with family and friends!

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Thank you all. We had a wonderful day celebrating. A bit hectic, but fun. We have so many wonderful people in our life. We are so blessed.

Pampering myself sounds like a great goal. I an also going for enjoying some peace. I want to avoid the craziness that often comes with the holiday and try to relax this month.

Dh and I lost a good friend in a head-on collision last night. Please pray for John and the other driver, who both died, and the family and friends they left behind.

Tex sending prayers to all that's so tragic. It's bad enough but with holidays I think it's even harder.

Gab a nice big to Sami. Hope you'll post some pics.

Christina you changed your name, I was thinking who is this person that didn't introduce themselves And your avi is different too.

My goals for this month will be to do some sort of exercise every day, but really hope to get back to the gym. Going to journal all my food and do portion control. And will do some personal time for myself. I love that idea.

Tx --I'm so sorry for your loss, I didn't hear anything about a bad accident that way. Prayers and hugs.........

Gab - Sammie is so darn cute ! Love the pics and good to see YOU ! Hope he had a great birthday

Goodmorning, back down the mountain today, taking Dad by ambulance to the hospital to see specialist and run tests then back to rehab. They discontinued all his theropy. The rehab center only has a staff Dr. and he doesn't do much. But will be coming home after because I have work the next 2 days.

Gab what a cute little man. Love the pic and him in his little tie Love the cake too, did you make it?

Laura glad your done work for awhile. Maybe now you can get your back staighten out. I got the same temper. I can only hold back for so long and then it all comes out.

Deb have fun shopping.
