My TOPS group ( www.tops.org for your nearest chapter!) is running a series of challenges for the summer. Each week we add a new one! Here are the first 4.
1. Create a SMART goal. Tristan Loo (www.SIA-ha.com) has a great planning sheet that we used. The goal is to achieve it by the end of 13 weeks.
This is the goal sheet I used to define how I will declutter my space 3 items a day.
2. Our second goal was to repeat positive affirmations. I remind myself that as the TOPS pledge says, “I am an intelligent person!” I also remind myself that “I take care of myself” and “I treat myself with dignity and respect”
3. “Eat 4 vegetables per day!” This one is vital to my success. And the hardest one, believe it or not! I have been enjoying my salads – 3 cups romaine lettuce and 1 cup cherry tomatoes – with a variety of toppings to keep me from getting bored.
The new challenge is to “Add 2 cups of water” to your routine. Some people have a hard time getting enough fluids. This is a baby step that will get you on the right path.
I’m keeping a water bottle by my computer. That way I don’t start wandering around my kitchen looking for something else.
Feel free to join us in taking on these challenges! It all helps!
Have a wonderful day!
