Okay guys, Challenge Day 1:

My goal -- to regain my health: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I also want to actually get my ass to Denver, (but that's a sub-heading to this under mental and emotional health).

What I am doing about it TODAY. (Because the idea is to do at least one small thing every day. Small things add up to big things. An overhwelming project isn't if you can take it one step at a time. Before whosawhatsit climbed Everest they had to hire a sherpa and pack their bags, etc.

1) I set up the thread for this on our forum over at Coffeetime Romance. That way if anybody needs a mid-week boost or pity party they have somewhere to go. You'll need to sign up at Coffeetime if you're going to do that, but they're a great group. Up to you. It's just an available resource.

2) I had blood drawn and am going to the doctor. My thyroid medicine is no longer currently available and the replacement stuff isn't working; and there are other things that need dealt with as well.

3) I bought a notebook to keep track of daily goals and progress made toward them.

4) I am spending a chunk of this afternoon doing a motivation/goal setting workshop using tools I got from a motivational speaker who works well for me (but gets made fun of a lot). I am not too proud to use what works.

Now it's your turn. What is your goal? What are you doing today to get to it? HMNN?

Oh, and Ellece, you've got to tell me/us HOW DID THE INTERVIEW GO?????

I'm gonna take one goal for now although I have many and maybe they are overwhelming me a bit. I am disabled but can do things a little at a time so hope this works for me. My goal is to get my books organized and get rid of the ones I don't "need" or want anymore. The books are taking over my house. I have arranged to have some boxes delivered so I can fill then up when I can. Hope to start on that Monday.

I understandthat! I've packed most of my things and the VAST majority of what I have are boxes! Perhaps you can see of the local library or nursing home would like them as a donation? Also, you might look into a e-reader where you can store thousands of books in the space of one. :) Of course they're a little pricy.

Dolly there is also Operation Paperback if you are looking to donate.

I need to lose weight and to start, I've decided to cut out soda, teas, and coffee. I may not go cold turkey cause I love my coffee but the tea and soda I think I can do.
