In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Exercise Guild

At my work we have an exercise guild. We have a chart up on the office door where each person writes down their personal exercise goal next to their name. Then each day that you do your goal, you get to put a checkmark in the box for that day. Last year we had a reward/penalty system, but it kind of fell through. So a couple weeks ago I put a new chart up without any penalty system. The reward is getting to put a checkmark by your name showing that you did your goal and also, feeling proud of yourself. It has really been working well for me. So I thought I would start one for family and friends and post it on my blog. What I'll do is do a new post each week. You just reply to the post to let me know when you've done your goal, and I will put it in the post so that you, too, can feel proud of yourself for doing your goal. So in your first reply, let me know what your goal is so I can put it in the post. This post is for this week, starting with yesterday and going through Sunday, so June 1-7. A slash mark (/) is a checkmark that you did your goal that day. And you can do more than just your goal. For instance, I exercised for 10 minutes today instead of 5. You can also change your goal whenever you want, just reply to the post and let me know.
