Just for Today - month of February. Would you like to join me, as we take this one day at a time.

I started a thread in late October, and another one in January, to try to stay on track, "JUST FOR A DAY". We have had over 500 replies last month, so I am going to restart this each month. This has helped me tremendously, to start each day new. It has kept me going, and to keep on trying, one day at a time. And, I've met some wonderful friends along the way! Reading others goals for just one day has given me so much inspiration and goals to set for myself.

If I can do this for JUST ONE DAY, well, maybe that one day will lead to another day, an entire week, an entire month, and this will help me to develop better habits for my life, taking this one day at a time.

So each day I am going to post what I would like to accomplish. While I post my "Just for today" list, I am also going to post how I did the day before, so I am accountable to you guys as well.

Would anyone like to join me!! I am always so encouraged reading others goals, and together, we can all reach our goals for 2015 and beyond. I hope to keep doing this, starting a new thread each month.

    Yesterday, 1/31
    1. Get out for a walk, no matter how tired :) Went on a long 5.15 mile walk today, which felt great
    2. Drink more water :)
    3. Keep a positive attitude. Look at the big picture of how I want to feel next summer :)
    4. Get on here and log every bite I eat. :'( Got into some ice cream tonite.

    Jan 1 - weight was 200 lbs
    Feb 1- weight is 194.6 lbs

    My goal this month is to lose another 5 lbs. I am still trying to get back to where I was before Halloween - which was 186.2! I get so upset with myself, I was only about 10 lbs from my goal weight. But, each day can be a new beginning.

    So if you guys posting would like to also post your goals here, it might be fun to look back at the end of the month to see if those goals are met?

    Just for Today, Feb 1st
    1. Drink water - minimum of 8 glasses
    2. Drink water in the evenings, as this is my hardest time
    3. Focus on the positive, not the negative. 2 years ago I was close to 220 lbs.
    4. Go for a walk, or if snowing, get on my ellipitical.

    Just for today I'm going to switch off the electronics (now) and get to bed before 10:30

    Good night! See you all in the am. :smile:

    (I went for a 2 mile walk was -26°C/-15°F but for the first time in months I didn't let that stop me. :smiley: )

    Sign me up as I just started in Jan, but I all ready hit some hurdles. My goal today is to keep my calorie intake under 1400 or on.

    My daily goal is to burn 3000 calories;
    Walk 14,200 steps (about 11 km).
    I want to weigh 190 by March 1 (8 lbs loss).
    Run 5k at least 5 times per week (OK, right now I can't run 5k, but my 5k "run" is a mix of 3k running and 2 k walking...I'm gradually increasing the running component, so by the end of the month I hope to be able to run 5k non-stop.)

    That sounds great! I'm going to the gym at least twice a week to get fit and I usually do the elliptical. With work and classes it gets busy so I usually take long walks. Just hoping for the best with a positive attitude :)
