The 8 Week Holiday Challenge...Wk 2

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Hi SparkFriends and Teammates!

Well my teams Torrance, South Bay, LA and Palm Desert are off to a great start! It takes a lot of guts to sign up and commit in front of literally thousands of other team members. A big Woo Hoo goes out to the ones who are going to see this thing thru...everyone else feel free to cheer them along! I will be posting their screen names soon... we just closed the sign ups. Here's some great info to jump start you and anyone else who wants to join this challenge from the sidelines...Good Luck to you all!

To stay motivated try these tricks:

1.Plan on ways to get past obstacles before they happen. If you find you're skipping exercise because of family responsibilities, plan a family walk or outing to get them involved too.
2.Try to workout in the morning. You'll have more energy throughout the day and you won't have the excuse of skipping it because you're tired or have to work late.
3.Workout with a friend. When a friend is waiting for you, you're less likely to back out!
4.Make a list of goals and put them on the refrigerator. When you think about skipping your workout, go back and read your list. Remember why you're doing this!
5.Keep track of your progress. When you reach a goal, that will motivate you to keep going!
6.Wake up each day and ask yourself how you'll make your day healthy. Plan your workouts the night before and be prepared with a workout bag ready to go so there are no excuses!
7.Reward yourself! It's important to pat yourself on the back for reaching your goals. Get yourself a massage, a new pair of workout shoes or a night on the town every so often.

SparkPeople Rock!

THANKS SPARKFRIENDS, I AM HONORED!

Monday, October 12, 2009

Hi To All My Sparkfriends!

Many thanks for your votes making us Leaders Of The Month!

RobertBFit and I are so excited! Of course we couldn't have done it without the rest of our team leaders and that would be LIZZIECA55, DUDE002 and Britney who is our leader for teens! We love what we do and have fun while we are at it.

We encourage any and all of you to do the same... just get out there and invite people to workout with you and have fun...it may start with one person...but stay commited.... if you build it they will come! That's what we did.

If you have any questions about how to get started just ask me! Come and join us anytime you are in the LA area!

SparkPeople Rock!

THE "DEAR JOHN" LETTER...

Friday, September 25, 2009

Dear John, (insert your name here)

You probably already know what this letter is about. You've seen it coming; I know you have. It's about us, John. It's over. I'm leaving you! I've hung on as long as I could.

You've got to give me credit for that. I mean, the way you swept me off my feet and talkedlovingly about the future we would have together. I have waited so long for your embrace, your attention, and your love.

Why have you neglected me? Why have you made so many excuses? Your inaction and addiction to procrastination is tearing me a part. I simply must move on!

For years, I would get so excited every time you talked about the weight loss program we were going to start, the places we were going to exercise, and the healthy foods we were going to eat every day and watch our body get leaner and more fit. My heart would pitter-patter every time you talked about me to other people, only to be let down once again because you were afraid.

John, what are you afraid of? It's only me! I am your hopes,dreams, and goals.

I wanted you as much as you wanted me, but you have left me no choice. I simply must move on! Please do not attempt to talk your way out of this. The years of indecision and lack of discipline tell me everything I need to know.

If you really-and I mean REALLY-wanted me, you would have found a way for us to be together. I am tired of having my hopes soar so high just to just to see them dashed.

I simply must move on! Time is marching by without us, and my greatest fear is suddenlybecoming visible on the horizon. I am so afraid that we could come to the end of our lifetime and never have the chance to really know one another.

It breaks my heart to even entertain this thought, but I simply must move on! Like the Genie that grants three wishes, I wanted to give you your heart's desire.

All I wanted, needed, and asked for was your attention, your devotion, and your willingness to work hard for me. If that was too much to ask for, then I'm sorry. I simply must move on!

All things of value must be earned, and I've grown tired of your excuses and lack of patience. On numerous occasions, I was within your grasp, but you quit too soon. Why did you leave me when you were so close?

I'll let you in on a little secret. Every day I would call out to you, "I am your goal, here I am, come and get me!" I'm curious. Did you ever hear me? I repeated this question day after day, month after month, andyear after year. But now, I've grown tired of hearing that the timing is not right, that you're tired, or that someday you'll get around to it.

It's now time that I get around to it myself and find someone who is committed, focused, and proactive. I simply must move on!

On behalf of all of your hopes, dreams, and desires, there is something you should know about us. We will never fail you, nor will we ever let you down.

The main reason why we have not embraced one another is that you have failed us by not taking action! Why?

Sincerely,
Your Goals, Hopes, and Dreams

WHOA! NOW THIS REALLY BLEW ME AWAY!!!! I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD POST THIS UP WHERE THEY CAN READ IT EVERYDAY AND ASK THAT QUESTION...WHY.......? LOL
