Day 600 - WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, November 23, 2012


Today may be Black Friday for some people, but for me, it's DAY 600 of my exercise streak. WOO to my HOO!!! Yeah, baby!!

I decided to walk a personal 5K, in honor of the day and I took you with me. Don't worry, I edited it down. :) But hey, I'm pretty excited about this and I wanted to share it with you. My SparkBuddies are so great at encouraging me and helping me stay on track. Thank YOU for helping me make it to Day 600. It was so worth it.

And guess what? I worked out (interval cardio and strength training) AND stayed within my calorie range on Thanksgiving. That, my friends, is a pre-Christmas miracle. Getting closer and closer to that next big goal. Spark ON, brave Sparkers!


600 Post-it Notes!


The stack has reached the bottom of Wonder Woman Pez's hair


Getting closer to that Wonder Woman goal!


Down 45 lbs!

    Good job! Way to be flexible and find motivation when it would be easy to quit.

Keep up the streak!

    You are such an inspiration! I've committed to the sparkstreak several times and not kept it up. Well, guess what? I'm starting over! How long can I keep it going?

600 days is awesome!

    You are amazing. I love to read and watch your blogs, it fills me with such joy and a need to try and have a better attitude. Last year at this time I was at almost 100 days, I got sick, I broke my streak. I tried 3 times to get it going again only to quit before I hit 25. Now I am back to 48, but struggling!!!

Thanks for the encouragement.

    SPARK ON!! *Congrats*!!!! on *600* days!!!!

That is a super big, awesome deal!!! I love that stack of post it notes!!

Love your picture with the Wonder Woman goal weight! You look amazing ~ truly getting close to your goal! emoticon

Way to go on working out on Thanksgiving! I went to the gym, had it to myself most of the time, and I felt so empowered and accomplished after doing it!

So proud of Audrey for starting a streak! You are an awesome role model, and I know you have inspired *countless* numbers of Sparkers and friends to begin making a change to a healthy lifestyle!

Way to go Shel! Cheers to future milestones.... 1,000 and beyond!!

    Woohoo! Congratulations Audrey and Shelli! You are truly an inspiration! I've fallen off the wagon since the hurricane hit (I'm at the Jersey shore) and I am not liking the results of that. Things are slowly coming back to "normal" and I realize, I have to get back on track NOW before I'm up 20 pounds..
So.. Officially, starting tomorrow (I already exercised today so I won't count it), I am going to start my own personal 10 minute a day streak.. No more excuses... Thanks to you.. and Audrey!

    Oh my goodness, Shelli... 600 DAYS! You are amazing! I love your vivaciousness, your smile, your love for people... What a feat you have accomplished. Like so many others, I loved the face-to-face talk at the end. YES I CAN!!

Big congrats to your minnie-me, too! You are both amazing ladies.

    HUGE congratulations Shelli!

And thank you so much for 'taking me with you' on your 5K walk. I was really interested to see what your neighbourhood looks like -very different to mine!

Thank you, too, my dear SparkFriend for the bit you said right at the end of your vlog, about never giving up. I've had some devastating news today and had already been struggling and failing quite a lot recently, gaining weight and wondering whether I should just quiteven trying. But you're right, if I take even in TINY step in the right direction consistently (for 600 days?!) then I WILL make progress. And perhaps then I will find myself smiling like you do.

I don't know if that paragraph made much sense - I should have been in bed hours ago, but what I really wanted to say was 'well done: you're a star!' and 'thank you'.

    Happy Day 600, WonderWoman!!! (And Happy Day 6 to WonderGirl!) You guys inspired me to start hooping in June, and I'm on Day #84 of my own workout streak (I thought the 10 minutes sounded stupid when I started, too, but you're right that showing up is half the battle--my "10 minutes" last night turned into 51 minutes, because I learned a new hoop trick and was having too much fun to quit). :o)

Thank you SOOOOOO much for sharing your journey--you have inspired more people than you'll ever know!!! :o)
