Hi MNNICE,
Yes, they are sometimes hard to remember. I have the WW books here so I usually go by their portion sizes. If you ever have a question on something, I can look it up for you.

IT's always a little hard to tell exactly what constitutes one serving of fruits/veggies. I believe an apple is 2 servings, while an orange is 1. A cup of strawberries is 1, while 1/2 c. blueberries is 1. I'm sure I sometimes overestimate and sometimes underestimate, so it probably averages out. I know I've seen a chart somewhere that spells it out, but I can't find it now -- so will do my best to come as close as I can.

Just keep tracking as you have been. Look at our Team goals section of our team page and it will say either sign up now or track now if you have already tracked it. Our team just starts at zero every 1st of the month.

After the first time you click the track now on our team, you can just go to your spark points page and click 'other goals' and it will take you to the goals you have chosen to track.

I hope that all makes sense.

I don't think it's counting if I mark something after midnight my time. I was pretty much on Ron's weird schedule and wasn't marking things sometimes until after midnight, and it wasn't showing up on my streaks.

~TEAM GOALS~

This is a monthly TEAM Challenge. We are working toward our goals together. By joining a team goal you will help the team to get to our monthly goal.
____________________________________

**Post any questions and also how you are doing with your 'TEAM GOALS' Here in this thread.**

____________________

1. Get in your daily Multivitamin! (1 a day)
2. Obtain your daily exercise goals! (30 min. a day)
3. Allow for fruits and vegetables! (5 a Day)
4. Love your Team! (1 time a day)
5. Stay hydrated! Drink your water! (8 cups a day)

The first letter of each team goal above spells out GOALS.
That is what we need to concentrate on, our goals to achieve results.
Form a plan, achieve our goals, see results!

~~~~~~~
DIRECTIONS:

1. GET IN YOUR DAILY MULTIVITAMIN!
Once a day take your multivitamin.
*post it in the team goal section as a 1 daily, for taking 1.

2. OBTAIN YOUR DAILY EXERCISE GOALS!
CARDIO: (Heart rate up!) We need to get in 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. (90)
STRENGTH TRAINING: 20 minutes of strength 2 times a week. (40)
STRETCH: 10 minutes a day 7 days a week. (70)
We are striving for 200 minutes of exercise a week, or about 30 minutes of exercise a day.
*Post in the Team Goals how many minutes you have done a day, whether it's
cardio, strength or stretch. Even if you didn't reach your daily goal post what you achieved.

3. ALLOW FOR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!
You need at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day for vitamins, minerals, and
fiber. They are also a good choice to use for snacking.

We all know the importance of water. It flushes out toxins and dead fat cells.
It also makes us feel fuller so we don't snack between meals.

Okay, I'm on board! I'm a little overwhelmed with all the teams etc; and all the tracking involved...but I am very competitive and love to set goals...so I hope I've done things right. Thanks for the instruction.

emoticon to see some of you have signed up for the team goals!

Tips I found:
1. Make sure and click on the left (the title of the goal and it will give you more information on how to post. It may say 30 minutes of exercise or 8 glasses of water in the title, but you are to post how many you did whether you go over or under. (As a team we are trying to meet our goal)

2. These goals are like a challenge against each other and also to see if as a team we can reach our goal for the month.

3. To get your ticker tape going with the goals you are participating in:

Go to your SP start page. Down in the middle left hand side is 'my streaks', click there. It will take you to a page where you can manage your teams goals and other things you want to track. Here you can click if you want to share you goals with the team--click on here if you want to have your ticker tape going for the team goals.

Any questions with the team goals or streaks, you can post the questions here.

Hope these help.

~TEAM GOALS~

This is a new feature of Sparks that came out in April. We are starting it June 1st.
____________________________________

~What Are Team Goals:
With Team Goals, SparkTeam Leaders can set up to 5 goals for
members of their Team. Team members can then choose to
"Join" the goal.
When they do this, they get the goal added to their "Other Goals" page,
and then their tracking totals go towards Team totals.
We think this will make SparkTeams even more helpful and fun!

~How to Use Team Goals:
You can go to any SparkTeam page and find the "Team Goals" section
under the Team Forums.
You can then see any goals the leader has set.

When you want to become part of the goal, just click "Join Goal."
As mentioned above, the goal will now be added to your Other Goals page.
Note however that if your Team sets a Fitness Minutes or SparkPoints goal,
you will automatically be part of that goal, since everyone on SparkPeople
tracks Fitness Minutes and SparkPoints.


We realize that this is a big feature, and it may take seeing and trying
it to fully understand. But, we think members will love it once you give it a try!

____________________

**Post any questions and also how you are doing with your 'TEAM GOALS' Here in this thread.**

____________________

1. Get in your daily Multivitamin! (1 a day)
2. Obtain your daily exercise goals! (30 min. a day)
3. Allow for fruits and vegetables! (5 a Day)
4. Love your Team! (1 time a day)
5. Stay hydrated! Drink your water! (8 cups a day)

The first letter of each team goal above spells out GOALS.
That is what we need to concentrate on, our goals to achieve results.
Form a plan, achieve our goals, see results!

~~~~~~~
Our Plan:

1. GET IN YOUR DAILY MULTIVITAMIN!
Once a day take your multivitamin.
*post it in the team goal section as a 1 daily, for taking 1.

2. OBTAIN YOUR DAILY EXERCISE GOALS!
CARDIO: (Heart rate up!) We need to get in 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. (90)
STRENGTH TRAINING: 20 minutes of strength 2 times a week. (40)
STRETCH: 10 minutes a day 7 days a week. (70)
We are striving for 200 minutes of exercise a week, or about 30 minutes of exercise a day.
*Post in the Team Goals how many minutes you have done a day, whether it's
cardio, strength or stretch. Even if you didn't reach your daily goal post what you achieved.

3. ALLOW FOR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!
You need at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day for vitamins, minerals, and
fiber. They are also a good choice to use for snacking.
*Post in the team challenge how many you had for the day.

4. LOVE YOUR TEAM!
Support is so important in weight loss.
Post in 'How are you doing today?" Thread to let everyone know
how you are doing and give your team mates some support too.

5. STAY HYDRATED!
We all know the importance of water. It flushes out toxins and dead fat cells.
It also makes us feel fuller so we don't snack between meals.
**Post how many glasses of water you had a day. If it is 0 put that, or if it is 10
put that in. Whatever you drink even if you don't reach your goal of 8 for the day.

~~Any questions just post them in our TEAM GOALS Thread.~~

Since this is all new to everyone, including me we may have to
change things as we get on to it.

Hope you all enjoy it and it helps you meet your goals.
