Welcome Legina! Jump in to our challenges. You are never late. Jump in where you are.

We will have our "monthy fitness minutes" challenge post for tomorrow. This is an ongoing challenge. Everyone decides for themselves how many minutes of fitness they will do their best to committ to. Post your committment, then regularly return and update your progress.

We also have "going for the gold" which is an Olympics themed for 'do your best'. Check it out.

We have lots of other stuff going on too...

Hi Heather, welcome to the team, I know at first everything is confusing, but after a few days you will get the hang of it!! Each day we go to the huddle site on the right and click on huddle now and you select your message, then we either start to read members blogs or post comments on their pages. We post what we have done under weekly challenge and then report what we had for breakfast!

Then their is the Strength Challenge which is the exercising part, right now we are doing Going for the Gold, see how many jumping jacks you can do in 30 seconds or 60 seconds or you could do leg ups or step ups using the same principles as the jumping jacks. Choose a video from Coach Nicole Bootcamp Video's and off you go!
Hope this helped
Angie

Hi Heather! Welcome to the team. It does take time to figure some of this stuff out. Please ask any questions you have. There is always someone around here to help you out.

Huddle - it shows up on the right side of the team windows. It is the part that is scrolling. To post to the huddle wall: just below the scrolling portion is a button that says "view huddle wall/huddle now"

Challenges - our team message board is divided Into 5 forums.
General discussion
Introduce yourself
Other activities
Game room
Challenges and tracking

We are allowed 3 "stickies" per forum. The leadership chooses the stickies. We use them to keep popular discussions posted at the top of the threads.

Hi Sandy! Happy you found us. Glad you came back to SparkPeople too. Sounds like you are ready to get involved in our challenges! :) we have "go for the gold" that started a couple days ago.. Olympics themed. We also have a "monthly minutes" that is popular.

This one isn't a "sticky" anymore, but we are still having fun with it.. Feel free to jump in to it too.

Hi, My name is Sandy and I am 53 years old. I have been with SparkPeople off and on for a few years came back in June 2012. I like the accoutability of the program and enjoy having challenges and weekly sounds awesome. I am working on my Master's degree in Higher Education Administration at the university I work at and am working on an internship this summer, I will graduate December 13, 2012, very excited.

I look forward to getting to know everyone. I have a home gym that I use on a daily basis. I have an elliptical, treadmill, exercise bike, hand weights and weight bench. I also have a pool that I am an daily in weather permitting. I do not have a problem with motivation but would enjoy having a weekly challenge. Sandy emoticon
