Monday, December 04, 2017

Hi Everyone

* Today is Day 16 of 33 = 48% for my new blogging goal (50% from Nov. 2 - Dec. 31 to do my best to motivate people through the holidays)
* Today is Day 296 of my 10+ fitness minutes streak.

I hope you had a good Monday!

Thanks for all of the good wishes on my 11yo's broken knuckle. Hopefully this is just a fluke for us this year. It was my mother-in-law's first broken bone in 80+ years, and the first broken bone for both of my boys.

He had a good day at school today for the first day back to school with the cast.

I'm having a great day today. Working a good amount on the new challenges feature. I'm so excited about connecting this more to SparkAmerica/SparkEarth. I will probably share more about this plan this week.

Also fit in nearly 60 minutes of fitness taking several breaks throughout the day and good eating so far. Hopefully I can hold that up for dinner and any snacks.

It's exciting to see we crossed 2,000 members to the Small Goals SparkTeam today!

How is your Monday?



Here is the link to the team if you haven't joined yet (we're over 2,000 members!):

Here is the button to press. Each time you press the button, the number of total presses will increase by one as a way to show that we're all part of something bigger -- a community of people reaching goals together!

Below is overview information for the challenge:

If you haven't seen this yet, here is the original announcement for this challenge:

And here is the link to the SparkPeople Fuel for Improvement System Overview that lists all of the current lessons and activities:

In addition to pressing the button, if you like posting comments, feel free to make a comment in each blog. I love seeing all the comments on the first blog with people saying "I commit to.......". Also feel free to post/track any of those goals to the community goals feed if you'd like.

Come back and push the button as many times during the day as you'd like to re-affirm your commitment -- like if you are wavering on making a healthy vs. unhealthy choice or just need a little extra push. All you need to do is refresh the page and the button will also refresh. Remember to subscribe to my blog if you would like to get an email alert right when I publish.

The button will remain on my blogs for now, but we might move it to a more prominent location at some point.

I am committed to a couple of goal right now:
1) Getting this challenge launched. I think this could be a lot of fun and a big way to help people, so I will work on this almost every day at least some.
2) I'm working to build the fitness level for my kids in various ways that I'll share more about on future blogs.
3) A commitment to keep my 10+ fitness minutes streak going.

SparkCheers and thanks for your support!
