Default Make 2017 Your Goal Year! Challenge 2/8: Valentine’s Day until April Fools Day

I’m wondering would anyone like to join me in a yearly challenge? Now, don't panic at the thoughts of going into this from January 1st to December 31st! For me, it would be near impossible to stay focused for a full year so I have decided to split the year into 8 challenges or 8 mini targets to reach. Each challenge represents a 6-8 week time during the year.

Challenge 1: New Years Day to Valentine’s Day (January 1st to February 14th) Challenge 1
Challenge 2: Valentine’s Day until April Fools Day (February 14th to April 1st)
Challenge 3: April Fools Day until Mother's Day (April 1st to May 14th)
Challenge 4: Mother's Day until Independence Day (May 14th to July 4th)
Challenge 5: Independence Day to Labor Day (July 4th to September 4th)
Challenge 6: Labor Day to Columbus Day (September 4th to October 9th)
Challenge 7: Columbus Day until Thanksgiving Day (October 9th to November 23rd)
Challenge 8: Thanksgiving Day to New Years Eve (November 23rd to December 31st)


Weigh in days for challenges will be once a week. I weigh in on Monday, you may edit your post with your weigh in date.

I will post a new thread for each new challenge as they approach. This means the thread will not get super duper long by end of the year. Also, anyone can jump in at any point in the year!
