Creative Challenge for the Local Team

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Since I got home from church today, I've been trying to think of a creative February challenge for our local Spark team. It needs to be something simple that members can do without taking a big chunk of time for recording details. I'm thinking maybe 3 walks (30 min each) a week plus weight training 2 times per week. Since we already have 2 team walks scheduled for February, we have some walk time already built into the month. Perhaps we could schedule a few more walks and some "progress share" time too. We're also trying to schedule a spa day for our members. I've sent out an email to the team to try to get input from members. I know that January and February tend to be months where there isn't much going on especially after the hustle and bustle of the holidays in November and December. I'd just like to do something to ignite the Spark for our team members. Hopefully, I'll get some great suggestions and responses! Let's let our inner Sparks shine!

A Relaxing Team Walk Through Nature

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Today, we did a great local team walk. (We now walk at least 2 times a month) It felt great to be in the great outdoors with all that fresh air. Today we walked at a nature preserve and were able to watch birds, gators, turtles and other wildlife as we walked. It was sad to see all of the dead fish that the recent cold snap had killed. (It was stinky as well) We walked for about 80 minutes at a fairly slow steady pace. Some of us were able to take pictures of a blue heron, an Ibis, baby turtles and baby gators. I came back from the walk feeling relaxed and calm. It was wonderful!

Mindful Eating

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I've decided to try mindful eating today. I've really been off my feed so to speak. I've not felt like eating for about two weeks now. While I'm not complaining, I do worry about getting the right nourishment. So, I think I'll force feed the good stuff starting today and see if I feel better overall. Look out fruits and veggies, I'm on the prowl!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think that is a good plan you have. Make sure to get plenty of protein if you have not been feeling great. It helps the body heal. emoticon

Out and About Today

Sunday, January 17, 2010

After being in the house sick for most of the last 10+ days, it was wonderful just to go grocery shopping today. I forced myself to walk up and down all of the isles just to work in some exercise. Altogether, I walked for about an hour at a moderate pace. The downside was that when I got home I was so tired! Hopefully that will mean that I'll sleep good tonight. After this bout with stomach flu, a sinus infection and a bad back, I have much more respect for my body. I need to make sure that I retain this level of respect in the future.

  I walk up and down those store aisles, too. Someday, I think someone's gonna start following me in a store, wondering why I'm doing so much walking and so little shopping. Like maybe I'm staking the place out. Why, might I want to steal all their Little Debbies?
