In the weekly Warrior Mini-Goal Challenge focus on your "short term goals"

Focusing on one week at a time, when the big picture seems too overwhelming. Small changes can bring on big results!!

Choose one or more things you want to work on for just this week. Don't set it too high or unreachable!!

Please, make sure your week works for you. Sun to Sat or Mon to Sun, whatever is YOUR week!

You can reach your main goal if you break it into small actionable steps. It could be as easy as 1-2-3!

1) Choose something you know you can do easily.

2) Add more difficult tasks to your plan.

3) These small steps will get you started, motivated & help build routine for long term success!!

Anyone interested in joining us for another week, or a first week, or a get back on track week?

Check in often, have a great week and do the best you can! :)

    Well. After being off of mfp for over a year I am back. I successfully did keto for almost a year and a half and lost 40lbs. I have been off of keto now for about a month and a little of the weight has come back. Came back quick too. So I am trying to get a handle on my calorie intake and portion control. Also, my husband had a double bypass in April and to help him with a lifestyle that is healthier for his heart we have opted for the Mediterranean diet. Will be thinking about my goals for next week and hope to be active in the group. I am so glad it is still going.

    Great job on 40 pounds lost! Congrats LaNanita! I am glad your husband is bouncing back and seeking a healthier lifestyle. Keep up the good work and hope to see you more!! :flowerforyou:

    Hey everyone! It's already Wednesday and I'm only just getting to my mini-goals. *sigh* I'm tired pretty much all the time, and it's discouraging. Yes, rehearsals are long and the show is a big commitment, but nearly all of the other grownups there have full-time jobs, and the younger cast members are students, so we're all dealing with it. I feel like everybody else is doing fine and I can't keep up. :(

    1. Read Dying for a Paycheck. Update Goodreads.
    2. Plan meals THE DAY BEFORE after school and LOG THEM. Stick to the log.
    3. Rehearsal Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri. Finish drafts of units 2-5.
    4. Lift at school; treadmill running. Aim for 1 mile without walking.
    5. Write 2 blog posts. Figure out how to structure planning periods to allow for grading, planning, and parent contacts.
    6. Update Friday AM. New goals Sunday.

    Hello warriors. Week is going well so far. Have managed to stick to my goals. Working on creating those good habits. The hardest part is fast approaching... the weekend. I tend to not do as well during the weekends. You would think with the free time I could do more but alas not so.


    1. Workout 4 times: 3/4
    2. Log my food every day: 3/7

    Let’s finish this week strong!!!

    Thanks Molly. Btw. What are blue dot days?
    Those are Weight Watchers days for within point range or calorie range. If you are familiar with WW they use points vs calories. So I try to get within their range. I usually lose weight if I can do 4 to 5 days.

    Hello Warriors!!

    Everyone is having a pretty good week!! Keep up the good work!

    Hang in there @clicketykeys - you do have a rigorous schedule :wink: But you can do. Keep you chin up. I am sure it will be worth the sacrifice. You may want to sit down one day and re-evaluate things if you are getting overwhelmed.

    2. Log my food every day: 6/7
