December 2021 Add 'em up Goals & Habits Challenge ~Finish the year strong!

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!

I can't believe it's December already! I really am ready to get myself back on track, to love myself enough to do the hard things!

It is hard to believe it is December. I must get myself back on track.

I got on the scales this morning. Egad!

I don't think I drank enough water today. I will do better tomorrow.

Today was my first real work out in over a week. I have had bronchitis. I did Ellen's Quick Cardio. It had to be short because the Razorbacks are playing basketball at 7.

See you tomorrow!

So far, so good this week. I’ve done a workout every day so far. I’m on the last week of Jessica Smith’s Calm and Strong.

MT, sorry to hear you had bronchitis, and glad you are working out again. I’ve gained weight too, from Thanksgiving and then cake! I eat less than I used to, but it doesn’t seem to matter. The metabolism has definitely slowed down!

MT, so sorry to hear you had bronchitis. I hope you are back to feeling like yourself.

Sherry, awesome that your getting more workouts done. That is a goal of mine this month.

Vannie: I can' believe it's December either. My goal is to get back on track too.

Yesterday I got both a walk in and a DVD! Jill Miller YTU Quick Fix for wrists. My right wrist has been bugging me....probably too much computer time. It's not as bad today so maybe that segment helped. This morning I got in a much longer walk than normal but forgot my pedometer. Next time!! I'm glad I got such a good walk in though because it's raining now and it will probably be too muddy for tomorrow morning anyway. My weight has been stable. I'd still like to lose a solid 5 lbs....well, really more than that but 5 lbs would be nice. Not sure that is realistic until after New Years though so maybe if I could just not gain, that'd be okay too.

Sherry, my metabolism is crap these days. It is so frustrating.

Katie, good job on walking and a DVD. It is supposed to rain here all weekend.

Vannie, I think getting back on track is a theme around here.

Scales were a little kinder than yesterday.

Exercise was Ellen's Sleek Side Body.

Water intake is still not as good as it should be.
