Back to School -the perfect time for a challenge!

Saturday, September 03, 2011

New pencils, new paper, new notebooks. I loved back to school time as a child, even though I actually hated school. (Social issues - what chubby kid didn't have those?) SO in September I am always thrilled to throw myself into something new.

Later this week, I'll be starting a new challenge that tracks not just weight lost, but cardio and strength training minutes and points earned on other random health challenges. I want to earn those points! Unless you're in academia, adults don't have many chances to get 'graded'. No one tells you how you're doing. That recognition is a really nice boost for our egos - totaling up my minutes of cardio for the week tells me "I have accomplished something!"

So if you miss those new pencils and want a challenge, let me know if you're interested!

    I loved back to school - as a kid and specially as a parent! Now we're empty nesters and September is still my favorite month of the year.
    Good luck with your challenge - sorry I can't join due to circumstances.

    I know what you mean. What do all those Sparkpoints and Fitness Minutes points mean? In the grand scheme, not a whole lot I suppose. But for me, it lets me point to it and say, "Look! I did that!" Enjoy your challenge.
