Everyone is welcome - you don't need to have been a part of the previous challenge to participate.

Post your 2013 New Year's resolution. If you don't make resolutions and want to make a goal, that's fine too. It doesn't have to be a specific weight or a specific size but it does have to be SPECIFIC (i.e. Don't write "I want to be healthier." If you want to improve your health, how are you going to measure that? Do you want a specific blood pressure range? Do you want to be able to run a mile nonstop? etc).

Next you're going to write what you're going to do from Independence Day to Labor Day to make that happen! That's approximately 8.5 weeks. What will you do for the next 8.5 weeks of 2013? How will you make your resolution happen?

Copy and paste this format. You'll be coming back each week to update your progress (find the entry and click edit). And this thread will be available for us to chat about the challenge, overcome struggles and celebrate successes.
