30 days of mini (attainable) health and wellness goals

Ok ladies (and willing gentlemen!) I'm throwing out a challenge to get us all back on track. The more people that do the challenge them more motivated I will get, so I hope I get some followers! I'm going to start (on facebook) a 30 day mini goals challenge for health and wellness. Each morning for the next 30 days I will post a mini goal tailored to myself. An attainable goal, not something I know I won't be able to accomplish and therefor fail at, cause who wants to feel like a failure every day? Not me! So, when the day is over, I'll ever post whether I met my goal, or I will try harder next time, cause I'm tired of even writing that I failed at something. Failure is an evil word and we shouldn't say it..especially about ourselves, right? So here's the rules....

when you wake up, set your goal-on your own page. You can also post your goal under mine on my page so I can see what you are doing and who is participating!) At the end of the day, post whether you were successful with that goal or not.

sample goals are (and it doesn't JUST have to be about food or exercise!)

* declutter my house/clean my house (cause it makes everyone FEEL better and therefore is a wellness goal! woot!

* drink 8 glasses of water today

* journal my foods

* journal my feelings

* take a walk today that is at least 1/2 hour long

* pray for strength to make it through the day (this one helps!)

* call a friend to cheer them up (score a joy point and make yourself WELL by making someone else feel better!)

* think positively (positive affirmations are so powerful you won't know what hit you!)

(remember these goals are DAILY goals, not weekly so you don't have to write something like " exercise at least 5 times this week and sweat till I bleed"

....daily people...one baby step at a time...we can DO this!

oh, and you can post the same goal more than once in the 30 days. As a matter of fact you can post the same goal over and over if that's what you FEEL you need to do

If you have any questions, let me know!

ps- I posted one of my favorite GIRL POWER poems below by Maya Angelou. Enjoy!

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
