I was just going to forget this idea since it didn't seem too popular but *I* need this thread so - ignore me while I rant away :-) You are free to join me if you wish.
Today I promise to myself and to GOD -
NO MORE junk food - not one bite
Put EVERYTHING I have into my run tonight
No cigarettes (don't ask!) - not one puff
I will find a way to show my husband just how much he is needed
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 Remember that in a race everyone runs, but
only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you
will win.  All athletes practice strict self-control. They do it to win a
prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.  So I run
straight to the goal with purpose in every step. I am not like a boxer who
misses his punches.  I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to
do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself
might be disqualified.
