Hello everyone. I would love to join this challenge. I have been doing sparks since Monday and trying to stay on track.

Is it too late to join in. I need something to hold me accountable. I joined Spark in February and last week I started to really use it as a daily tool and I'm finding it motivating and it really works for keeping your goals in check. If I can join in then I will begin my posts tonight after my daily workout. Thank You emoticon

Welcome, Everyone!

I'm so excited about getting started this month. I know there's strength in numbers, and we're gonna kick xxx.

There's only 31 days to this challenge, and this month will be gone before you know it.

So let's start this thing, and give it our best shot. I'm so looking forward to losing the few I've gained over the holidays, that are still hanging on, and want to look great for Easter!

Anyone else want to join, please do. The more the merrier.

Good luck, everyone!
Hugs, Dena emoticon

It's the 3rd month of 2011 already! Before you know it, Spring will be here. Please join me in the March 1-31 Buddy Motivation Challenge.

The plan is simple. Each day we post:

1. Number of calories:
2. Number of minutes of Exercise:
3. Number of Glasses of Water:
4. Motivation: (the same one everyday)
5. Delight: (What made you smile or brought you joy today?)

On Day 1, state what your motivation is to lose weight. Repeat this same motivation for the next 31 days. Your motivation has to be something that will inspire you to lose weight.

This is an example:

cals: 1400
water: 8
exercise: 30 min
motivation: Apr. 1 party
delight: the invitation to the party

FRIDAY is Success Day. Post any successes you've have during the week.

Who will join me in this challenge?
Hugs, Dena
