January 2022 Add 'em up Goals & Habits Challenge ~Kick off the year with us!

Come join us in setting and achieving goals to promote your overall wellness! We are a friendly and welcoming group who love to chat when we have time, but please also feel free to join us if you want to just focus on your goals. No pressure here to address everyone; share as little or as much as you want!

We have been doing this challenge for many years now. While it is not strictly about fitness goals, we agree that our daily life goals work together with our fitness goals to make us happier and more balanced, so we combine them in this challenge. Feel free to join us! You can tailor it to your schedule if you need to take a week off for vacation or only count so many days. Whatever works for you!

Premise: Choose your goals for the month. Every time you complete a goal you get a point. Multiply your number of daily goals by the number of days in the month. This is your max total points. If you choose, reward yourself for reaching a certain percentage of your max possible (I use 90% for my personal goal), multiply by your max to get your total goal points. I also give myself extra credit options.

**Take this challenge however you wish. I used to total my points all the time but have fallen away from that and now just track my goals. There really are no rules, your challenge is your own, we're just here for support and to help each other with accountability. We would love to have you join us!

Happy New Year! We started off with a really cold one. It was -30 this morning! Burrrrr! But tomorrow it's supposed to be 30 above so that'll feel like T-shirt weather.

We played D&D with friends all day today. I'm gonna have to force myself to get my yoga done tonight and that will probably be all I do.

Last night I did day 1 of my chiropractor's squat challenge, Cher's Hot Dance, day 1 of CVG's Movement Challenge (workout tester, two tabatas: mountain climbers, burpees, bicycles and air squats), and a Kassandra bedtime yoga practice.

Katie, was that actual temp or wind chill? We were -16 this morning (for both). We are definitely in a cold snap!

I completely dropped the ball yesterday, so I did not get the new yest off to a blazing start.

Today I did Les Mills' Pump and Burn. I like it a lot.

We had tshirt weather today. The high was 36. LOL.

Have a great week.

Yesterday was Jessica Smithís new you tube strength workout and today was her Gentle Yoga dvd. And tomorrow morning I get my permanent crown for my tooth, thankfully!
