Communal Project: a log reinforcing healthy choices & thoughts

Saturday, December 29, 2012

After two pretty rough months emotionally, I fell off the bandwagon last weekend and overindulged at three parties in four days - with predictable results.

In addition to getting back on track with the food and exercise, I thought it would be a good idea to work on reinforcing my healthy choices and thoughts.

I can see from the teams.sparkpeople
.com/maintaining
blog posts that I'm not alone here, and I know I'll be more likely to do this if others do it with me. So... I created a loose, open-ended community log, where we can acknowledge and celebrate our good choices and positive thoughts. I think it might be really encouraging to see each other's responses.

Here's where you can make an entry into the log:
docs.google.com/spreadsh
eet/viewform?formkey=dGNud
FJQOGY3LWxNdjRrQVB6ZjNPaVE
6MQ#gid=0


Here are the responses so far:
docs.google.com/spreadsh
eet/ccc?key=0Ah4KrA4GkhKgd
GNudFJQOGY3LWxNdjRrQVB6ZjN
PaVE#gid=0

(This takes you to the current day's entries. To see responses from previous days, click the tabs at the bottom of the screen.)

Here are wordles of our positive thoughts so far:

I'll post one there each day from the comments.


And here is a thread where we can talk about this project:

As it says at the log entry form, you can participate as much or little as you like.

We'll do this until January 31.

Enjoy!

    Thanks, I have really needed some other form of accountability. I am hoping this does the trick for me!

    Yes- thank you! I love how you create these challenges for us! How hard is it to create those forms, etc? I wonder if it's something that I could tackle for the team that I lead?
