Health goals for college

My husband and I leave tomorrow afternoon to take our youngest to college at Duke University (yes, we'll be empty nesters!). She's excited and a little nervous -- and so am I. But I was charmed last night when she showed me three sets of goals she'd written for herself: School Goals (e.g., "get to know my advisor and professors"), Personal Goals (including "keep sight of what's most important"), and Health Goals, which I'm including here:

>Go to the gym at least 3 times a week

>Have at least one Emergen-C per week

>Take daily vitamins

>Drink at least one water bottle per day

>Work on posture, especially while sitting

>Drink tea

>Eat at least one fruit or vegetable per day

>Cut back on soda

>Eat energy bars when tired, not sugar!

I am so proud of her ...
