I did 96 minutes of fitness today – using the New Year motivation for another good day!
Today's highlight was doing a good amount of weights and rowing machine. I also went outside for awhile with the boys.
For all of our new members out there (and current ones working on a goal), this could be you next year!

Title: Reached weight loss goal by my target date!
Message: When I set my weight loss goal, I set the target date as today: 1/1/12. Many times along the journey I have questioned the wisdom of that decision. It meant that I had to keep making good choices, or at least reasonable splurges throughout the holidays. To top it off, I knew that I would have to take the last 10 days of my journey either being a guest at someone else''s house, or having company in my home, with little or no access to the internet. I borrowed my neighbor''s scale last night, so I would have it to weigh in first thing this morning. Last night, it looked like it might be hopeful. This morning, I discovered that I not only reached my weight loss goal, but I left an extra 1.8 pounds behind. I''m very relieved and excited. I really was not at all convinced that I would make it through the last couple weeks without the accountability and support that I''m used to. Woohoo!! I did it!!!

I did 30 minutes of fitness today. (this is for yesterday, December 31)
Today's highlight was running on the beach with my boys. We drove down there for a few hours to celebrate the last day of the year. It's fun to see them get exercise outside in such a fun way!
I love this comment from a member – it's a great one showing how making your life an adventure can be such a great motivator to take additional positive steps to reach goals. Let's all make it a great 2012! I also think I remember talking to the nutritionist mentioned below!

Mr. Spark Guy.... Funny story... I noticed I was so close yesterday to getting a new trophy (15k) that I thought I might be able to make it. I did a lot last night trying to get over 100 pts, and today too. I added everything up, and even if I did another 30 minutes of *something* and got all 10 pts for extra exercises... I would be 8pts away from reaching my new year's goal... and then I scrolled down and saw, "Watch this video and get 10pts." Sweet.
I *AM* amazed at your generosity, your commitment to help other people be *healthy* (not skinny!). Floored.
Thank you for sharing your wealth for a greater cause. I've been a sparker on and off since Dec of 2007, when my nutritionist at Hickam AFB, HI referred me (I'm in the AF).
Thank you isn't enough... but seriously.
May the new year bring you many blessings, and tons of encouragement!
I hope you had a great day! Did you get at least 10 minutes of fitness? What's your highlight?
