five February goals

I didn't make any New Year's resolutions this year.  I'm bad at them anyway - a year is too long and I always make them too big.  So I'm trying something new.   I'm setting a list of goals for the month of February.  28 days seems doable and forces me to stay smaller.

These are all about health/weight.  Since the surgeries last summer I gave myself permission to not worry about food or exercise much.  Well, stepping on the scale this morning I'm up near the heaviest I've ever been and it's time to start paying attention again.  Especially given that according to the anecdotal evidence it's going to be harder for me to lose any weight now that I'm on hormone pills instead of having an active thyroid.

Here are the goals:
1) floss daily
2) stretch daily
3) move for at least 20 minutes daily
4) have at least one serving each of fruit and vegetables daily
5) No fast food restaurants

I'll report back on Mondays.  If anyone wants to join in or set some February goals of their own that would be awesome.  It's usually a little easier to follow through on things like this if you know someone else is doing it too.
