Ideal vision of my health/fitness lifestyle: I’d weigh 140 (currently I weigh 175). I would exercise 4-5 times a week, drink lots of water and eat a vegetarian diet heavy with veggies/fruit/nuts and very little processed food. I’d take the time to cook my own meals and experiment frequently to prevent myself from getting in a rut. I’d be fit and have lots of energy, never getting bogged down by food binges or feel obligated to eat/drink things I don’t want. I’d take the time to meditate for a short while each day to help me stay in touch with why good health is vital in the big picture.

What I’d like to accomplish with the 21DHL challenge: I’d like to lose 7 pounds. I want to be in a different frame of mind when it comes to my health. I want to be in the habit of cooking my meals and stop caving to eating out and eating junk.

Action steps: Exercise every day (I want to form a strong habit, I’ll probably ease up after the 21 days are over). Plan and shop for healthy meals. Meditate at the beginning and end of each day. No coffee in the PM. Wake up at 6:30 each day and break my terrible habit of hitting the snooze button like 5 times. Drink lotsa water/tea. On the 11th I’ll be starting a yoga class at my gym.

My Ideal Vision For My Health/Fitness/Lifestyle

When I think about myself in my ideal world:
--I am slender and graceful.
--My posture is naturally erect.
--When I awaken each morning, I feel energetic and happy to be alive because I have a purpose for living.
--My body feels light and ready to get out of bed and get the day started with action.

What I Want to Accomplish By The End of 21DHL
--I want to accomplish the healthy living habits that will enable me to feel as I've described above. I fully recognize that daily giving in to inertia is causing me to live a life of regrets. I want to live a life of purposeful action and look back on my life with very few regrets.

ACTION PLAN
After a few stretches (neck rolls—arms wide out to my sides—and side bends), I then do a lower body and upper body movement: at least 3-5 slow body squats and 3-5 wall push-outs.

Now into the kitchen, I begin with a full glass of water before ingesting anything else. As I drink or eat the rest of the day, I give thought and thanks for the healthy benefits of what I’m about to have.

My nutritional choices are 90% healthy—and I intend for at least 50% organic as I transition more and more to a healthier lifestyle.

As I sit down at my computer, I have a daily To Do task list already waiting for me that I created the night before. These have been broken down into small, manageable steps that are moving me forward to my purposeful life.

As the day progresses, I stop to take short exercise breaks. I use any of my exercise DVDs or online YouTube videos that can easily be done in my living room.

Of course, I’m continuing my healthy nutritional habits throughout the day.

--------Research shows that people who diligently use To Do Lists get more things DONE!--------

By the end of 21DHL, I want to be eating better and exercising regularly. I would like to lose at least 5 pounds and tone up. I also want to drink more water and cut back on the soda and to eat more balanced meals and cut back on the junk. I'm also starting Dr. Oz's Kick the Habit Challegne to quit smoking.

In my ideal world, I will cut out the processed sugar at least most of it. Either tai chi or quigong each day and gym workout 5 days a week. Plenty of fruits and veggies. Lean meat and fish. Meditation each evening.
My plan of action is to refer to this list of goals in the morning to refresh in my mind and at evening to make sure I have done them to my satisfaction

Here's to your health.

Ideal Vision:
I imagine myself to be fitter, to regain the flexibility that I used to have when I was younger, and to have more stamina. Part of that 'being fitter' goal involves developing muscles, specifically.

End Goal for 21DHL:
I should be able to lift at least 30% more weight than I am doing now.
I should be able to attend a full one hour cardio session without feeling like I'm about to collapse and die.

Plan:
I'm going to make it a point to attend the gym at least 4 times a week, and in addition to that, get at least 10 minutes of workout at home every day. I'm also going to start doing yoga in the morning at home, before work.

And of course, since no fitness plan is complete without taking nutrition into account, I am going to get at least 3 veg and 3 fruit intake per day (the veg part is not too hard, it's the fruits that is going to be challenging), and drink at least 3l of water per day (THIS is going to be a challenge, I always forget to do it)

First up – going meatless. Then dairy free and pretty close to oil free. I am going to follow the 28 day program of the Engine 2 diet. Day one has been just fine. By the end of the 21 days I hope to have lost 7 pounds.

How I see myself/ I see myself walking at least 5 times per week yoga at least 2 times a week and getting rid of some stuff in my life that bogs me down. I will continue working on letting go of what others think of me and work on being a better caretaker of me.

Good for you on quitting the cigs!

At the end of this challenge I will be 10 lbs. lighter. My intention is to get back on the path of weightloss. I know I can do it but I must address my procrastinating tendencies and reprioritize Health as my number one goal in 2011. My plan is to be mindful of what I consume, when I consume it, and why I consume it. I am well aware that I must refrain from taking the easy fast route to picking up fast food when I am tired. I must plan to succeed. I visualize myself with more endurance, flexibility, mobility, and gracefulness. I have all the tools I need to succeed. Action is the only thing required. It is up to me.

I want to reach my ideal weight, around 68-70kgs. I will have lean, slim body, and have a high level of fitness/stamina that makes me able to do everything i want without getting tired easily. I'll eat healthy food everyday, fruits, juices, vegetables, etc. In a week, I'll exercise more than 3 times to keep my stamina well and to build some muscle in my body proportionally. Also, I will have sufficient sleep and become an early riser, so that I can have time to exercise regularly before going to work.

* Some goals in DHL

- Reduce sugar and fatty food in my diet.
- Become an early riser.

* Action Plan
- exercise at least 3 times a week
- change my breakfast menu into healthier one, such as oatmeal.
- reduce sugar, fried food, junk food.
- eat more fruits, vegetables
- getting enough sleep and wake up earlier

* key action
- eat consciously, choose the food properly.
- set the alarm around 5-6am everyday, so that i can go exercise before going to work. I should also make sure that I have enough sleep, so I will go to bed around 10-11 pm.
- track down my 21DHL progress

By the end of 21 days, I’m aiming to lose about 5 – 8kg of weight and want to have a leaner, healthier and slimmer body. I want to achieve discipline in areas of my portion of food intake and also higher fitness level so that I don’t tend to fall sick so easily. 

I’ll be eating more than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. Intake more of brown rice rather than white rice. Cut down on snacking during my office hours (especially chocolates and sweets since I’ve a sweet tooth and tends to snacks a lot when I’m stressed out). Cut down on fried and processed food (i.e. French fries, chicken wings, curry puffs and etc). I’m also going to cut down on seafood (i.e. prawns and crabs since I don’t like meat anyway).
I’ll be hitting the gym at least twice a week, jogging twice a week. Try to doing stretching or Pilates everyday or every other day.

One of my goals for this year is to be healthy.
Not skinny, not even slim, HEALTHY.
My ideal weight would be 115 lbs; I want to exercise daily, to meditate twice a week, to drink lots of water and keep a food diary.
I want to learn how to control cravings, I need to stop "eating my feelings".

By the end of these 21 days, I want to develop healthy habits (drinking 2L of water daily, exercising daily, healthy eating) and drop 6 lbs.

Hello everyone!
My name is Nanushka and I'm a 34 year old Hawaii-born Swedish music journalist. My friends would say I'm pretty healthy but they don't know how much chocolate/sweets I eat ;) and how many meals I skip. I feel it's taking a toll on my health, so therefore my 21DHL goals are to:

1. exercise every other day.
2. eat nutritious meals 4-5 times a day and cut down on sugar.
3. rise early and start my day with 5 minutes of meditation.
4. improve my posture, especially in front of the computer.
5. sing every day, stress less and do more things that make me happy.

The main priority for me is to really get back into the habit of exercising, since I've been getting neck- and back pains because of sitting too much in front of my laptop. I love dancing and yoga, so I'm going to do that but also buy a gym card, to make sure I work the muscles around the shoulders and neck.

So far I've drunk a lot of water. Still need to catch up on the other tasks though.

It's so inspiring to read all your awesome plans. I want to do all that you are doing too, but I guess I have to start with five habits and no more, if I'm to have a chance of succeeding. Or what do you think? How many habit changes are reasonable if you really want to make an enduring change?

Looking forward to creating new habits together!

Day 0:
By the end of the 21 days, I want to be 2 kg lighter. I want to exercise more. I want to cut down on unhealthy food and eat more vegetables and food, more protein rich food and less carbohydrates. I want to get more things done and procrastinate less.

Here's my plan:

Drink at least 3 liters of water per day. Exercise 3 times per week, and at least 3 hours in total per week. Stop procrastinating on my important tasks. No more than 30 min news surfing per day and only after the prio A tasks have been done. Eat healthy with lots of fruits and vegetables (3-5 times per day). Eat only when hungry, not based on a schedule. Do not eat or drink junk food. I'm going to track my exercise and calories.

Obviously, I want to post updates here frequently. Also, I want to cut down my computer time and spend more time with my wife.

...Trying to manage the open tabs in the browser of life...

- maintain drinking 8-10 litres of water(the amount I've been drinking for the past 4 months), and detox on a regular basis.
- eat 3 meals on proper gap of hours. (strictly not to skip any meal).
- balance lifestyle - do work, enough rest & sleep, brain training, positive mental attitude & 2 days for jogging & sprinting (each is for 45mins-1 hr; morning & afternoon), 30 mins weight lifting.

At the end of the 21 days in 21DHL, I want to see the results of:
- Flat and firmer tummy, bicep & tricep.
- More energetic. No backpain and less gas in the body.
- Percentage of positive thinking must be larger than negative and be very focus motivated.
- Muscle mass & bone mass will be increased, visceral fat reduced, lean muscle equally formed.
- body look more fit.

My 21-day Action Plan is to:
- Eat healthy meals (as for breakfast & dinner I will maintain taking healthy shake - vanilla or chocolate flavor.
- Make workouts fun & easy for 30 mins everyday. Jogging & sprinting for 45mins-1 hr every Saturday & Sunday.
- Wake up early & practice positive mind and cultivate good intention when wake up every morning.


The 3 things that will help me realize my 21-day Action Plan
- Enjoy & have fun!
- Must be disciplined.
- must keep record focused.

At the end of the 21 days in 21DHL, I will be:
- Happier & more focus.
- Looking fit, toned & healthy.

I wish others all the best and will have a lot of fun.

I would also like to encourage my fellow friends here to share their plan & experiences or at least leave comments.

Cheers!
