In keeping with my goal to be intentionally grateful, I am expanding my Friday post beyond just fiber.  There is some lovley fiber going on in the form of a beautiful shawl (so  exciting to get to the second color).  But I am also working at rebooting my health and fitness practices. 
After reading Gretchen Rubin's book, I realize that I am an Obliger, more likely to meet outer expectation than inner expectations.  So a challenge run by someone else is much more effective than one I create (hence the lack of follow through on the quilt along). 
So I signed up for the #HolidaySweat challenge.
The #holidaysweat involves logging the number of minutes you exercise and tracking fruit and veggie consumption - aiming for 7-9 per day.  I made myself a little weekly card to record my success.  This challenge helps me make intentional choices about what I am eating and how much I am moving. 
So, knit a bit, walk a bit, eat more veggies, show up for my trainer sessions, remember to stretch, eat some more veggies - a full Friday to be sure.

That sounds like a great plan. Can you take a close-up picture of your card? We could all copy your idea and help each other out!
