Thanks vabeachgirlNYC for starting us off. Yeah, that was me who started it on Tues last week.

GOALS
1. Clean the house--including emptying out the fridge and wiping it out (yuck)
2. Purchase presents
3. Drink 6 glasses of water a day
4. Exercise 5X
5. Eat healthier

You are not the only one that isn't feeling the Christmas spirit. Christmas is the time when I miss loved ones who have passed. My sister loved Christmas and we always shared in the preparations--this year there is no tree, no decorations and I'm ok with that. Plus my brother will be going to his wife's family for Christmas again so Mom and I will be alone.

OMG if Vabeachgirl is going to join, that means I may have to join.

After being out of the gym (due to my back) for a couple months, I joined a (different) gym yesterday, so I guess I can make that a goal and scratch it off my list.

I'm going easy on the goals since I've been a major slacker lately, baby steps... baby steps.

DONE1) join the gym yes
2) workout 3 times yes
3) drink a lot of water no

Vabeach, I'm not in the Christmas spirit, however, I'd bet that some buttermilk cookies could change that. Poor retarded kitty... wait, aren't all kitties retarded? Good job on the strong start.

Jennifer, nice set of goals you have there. How about this, I'll increase my workout from 3 to 4 if you increase your water from 6 to 7?

Hi everyone! Since I'm not very good at sticking to goals I will give this a try. For my first goal I will make it as simple as just logging my food daily.

jjrudd, Mon? Tues? It's all the same to me intil Friday gets here lol! I love the weekends!

I also think about those that I will not see again. I will miss how Christmas used to be. So sorry about your sister. I'm sure your mom appreciates that you will be spending Christmas together.

01gt4.6, my kitten really is retarded. Mentally and physically stunted. Now labled as kitty down syndrome. Makes her super sweet and cuddly.

Glad to hear you joined another gym. Whats up with not drinking enough water? I probably drank too much washing down the 2 buttermilk cookies I ate last night.

LMB2011, I think it's smart to make a simple goal when it's such a good one!

I gave in on my #6 goal and texted my ex to update him because it was the right thing to do. Kitty is almost one and only weighs 4 pounds and not doing as well as I hoped. Her small size makes it harder for her body to fight off being sick.

vabeachgirl, I am coming back. Thanks. Just haven't got around to posting--stuff going on. Will post more tomorrow.

Jennifer, big hug to ya. I know it's hard. I so miss my sis, too, but she loved Christmas so much that I believe she'd find a Heavenly way to whop me upside the head if I didn't put up my tree. Her daughters joke that she's probably driving the angels nuts trying to put silver tinsel and glitter all over their wings and on the Pearly Gates.

Mike, LOL on the kitty. Congrats on joining a different gym.

LMB, welcome. Congrats on being down on the scale each year and for starting out with simple goals.

Everyone, congrats on posting your goals. I'll do mine tomorrow. It will probably be more in baby steps toward resuming exercise, though, rather than committment to not indulging in the Christmas goodies. I will try to not binge eat carbs, though.

I have always told myself to Just Do IT, because no one else is going to do it for me! A very wise man told me to instead think... I Will Do This.

So I do, not just my health and fitness but everything I do... because I am worth it.
