Good for You!! But you have bitten off too big a chunk to work.  Start more slowly, like going to the gym two times a week, so you will feel successful. That makes it easier to stick with your new program.  Good Luck.

I really enjoyed sitting outside and reading old newspapers this afternoon since the weather was nice and the sun was shining.

I would like to improve my posture.  My back hurts frequently and start to slump.  I have been told that correcting my posture and standing up straight can help improve my overall health.

I've already begun walking on my treadmill every day, and wearing a fitbit to encourage more exercise. Would like to get back into Yoga on a regular basis.

A habit I would like to kick is keeping candy next to my bed. It's such a temptation late at night. Or maybe making myself do some exercises before having a piece. There has to be some balance.

I started drinking a plant nutrition product and it took away my sugar cravings.

I would like to develop better sleep habits in terms of bedtimes and duration of sleep.  That could really help with everything!

I am going to become more involved in my community and try to make others know they are appreciated. To many people complain and sit, retirement is a time to share with others - volunteer, call to check on a friend, plant a garden, knit caps for the new born babies at the hospital nursery, learn something new or teach your talent to someone else - IF YOU CAN READ THIS YOU CAN HELP A CHILD LEARN TO READ A GIFT THAT LASTS A LIFETIME.

I wish I had thought of this one, you're right. It's so easy to waste time at night when I'm a "little" sleepy, which leads to a wasted next.day. I want to get the most out of my retirement years, and need a little discipline to do that.

I would like to stop procrastinating. I have so much on my mind sometimes like work, my husband, my daughter that I forget or won't do the things I need to do for myself. So I put it off and I don't do anything.
