My Page background

Friday, April 05, 2013

On the whole, until today, that's exactly what it was - background to all the other "important" things on my page like status, pictures, introductory words, profile, lists of friends and teams. But no more - now it's more FOREground, to keep me focused on the important things from day to day. And, like many things, variety keeps it fresh so that I will need to change it regularly if it's to retain its new status on my page!
The idea came from a fellow team member, SF and blogger, LJR4HEALTH, who is adjusting her background weekly in accordance with our destinations on the 5% Challenge. So thank you Linda for this great idea - a bit of sincere flattery here!
However, I didn't want to be a copycat so have decided to alter my background for the next few weeks to reflect the Living The Good Life aspect of the Challenge. The coming week is to concentrate on Mindful Eating Habits, hence the new background.
When this Challenge is over I'll use the changing background to bridge the gap, and perhaps to keep me focused on other healthy habits.

    This is really great and an inspiration. I was happy to see the Mindful Eating challenge because it is something I've been working on for about a year.

    Different folks do it differently.

As long as you do it, form does not matter. (I like the colors.)

    fantastic idea. well done.
it is something how our pages reflect us and what we are about..
I change mine according to the holidays. Smile, or seasons. Although one time I did put the difference of 200 pounds lost with pictures of me.
I will have to think where I am right now and see if i can incorporate that into my page.
Take care and good luck on your challenges.
Be strong, stay positive.

    I love the new background! I find it interesting how much our pages show about us. The colors we choose, the pictures we use are all a camera into who we are and what makes us Sparkle!
