Loved the mini challenge this week!

Another suggestion, if I may?

Substitute one food for a "healthier"/lower calorie/fat version for an entire week or month.

For example, instead of milk on your cereal try almond milk??

First off - Thanks for the invite to join! Looks like a great group!

Secondly - a suggestion for challenges? Maybe challenge the group to do one new exercise activity a week - consistently for seven days. For instance, I don't "do" lunges. So maybe I would choose to do a set of lunges one day per week for 7 days. ???

CALLIKIA...THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUGGESTION!!
For now, you might try using the team "fun" goal of getting DLEE to Edmonton as that added push you are seeking...maybe make it a personal goal of yours to be the team leader in miles...you'll have your work cut out for you though...a few members are really going strong...JOYINKY already has 10 miles!!!

Rest assured...we'll have plenty of exercise challenges coming your way...

Always looking for ways to motivate my feet...so any walking or workout challenges would be great for me. I don't know about anyone else but sometimes saying, "Ooh...gotta push one more mile out so I can report it to my team!" keeps me going.

You can never suggest too much!! I love the ideas...give me a day or 2 to get them up and going!

And I just noticed...30 pounds...that's awesome!! Congrats on all your success...no wonder I like reading all your blogs (besides the fact that they are written brilliantly)...you are an inspiration!

As always,
Stay Strong!!

I have 2 suggestions:

* a weekly quote would be nice, sent out by Sparkmail - it could be a Popeye quote or something about bridgebuilding, etc that's relevant

* A challenge every two months, but something meaningful...I've enjoyed reading the Spark challenges where you do something every day for a month to achieve an end goal...eating healthier, beating stress, etc. We as the team members can post a little update on our blogs every week on how we're doing. My favourite is the 31 days to a healthier diet plan...I'd like to start that next week, so maybe that's a good benchmark.

Hope I'm not giving you too much work!

Hugs!
