Try something new!
Put yourself out there!

You are always going to get the same if you continue to do the same thing.

About a couple months ago, I decided to put myself out there and try something new ... so I picked up yoga. If I never gathered up the courage to do this, I would have never found out how awesome it is. I really enjoy it.

I urge everyone to try something new and do something you enjoy and makes you happy. After all, that is all that's important!

Stevie no theres no cost for that one. Give it a try. So simple to use.

Its only a temporary chat room but for 1 day every couple months I don't see there being a point in putting up a website with a chat client in it. And really all anyone has to do if they want to organize a meet is go on to that site, create the room with a click of a button and then post the link for everyone to come and join it. Its instantaneous.

How about a "Spring Into Summer Challenge"? Starts on the first day of Spring, March 20th and ends on the first day of summer, June 21st.

Amber, we are going to have to do something like that! Is there a cost to the chat room? I love the idea! What do you ladies think about have a chat room the next time for a Pajama Party? Let me know your thoughts!

This is in regards to the Pajama Parties (I posted this on the pajama party topic too.)

Why don't we just start our own chat room next time so we can chat real time?

http://www.tinychat.com/

Pick a day, start the session, post the link on here and away we go. Quick, simple and no sign ups required. Couldn't be easier!

I really like challenges. They keep me on my toes. I actually joined teams that I knew would keep me focused and challenged. There were plenty of groups for camaraderie. However, as nice as that is, I like the day-in and day-out push there is through challenges, accountability and such.

In my town we have a program called Penticton Steps Out. Two destinations are picked, say Los Angeles, California to Orlando, Florida which has a distance of 4,048.2km. And people record the distance they have moved from their pedometers, exercise bikes, elliptical trainers, rowing machines. Anything that gives you a distance that you have moved. It's like going on a cross-country walking trip without leaving the comforts of your city. And it's amazing how far you move quite quickly.

Commit,

I like the Head to Head Challenge! Can you send me a sparkmail on what does that really look like to you? I have an idea for February, but maybe we can do this in March! Let me know the details!

I loved that PJ thingy. I am SO busy all the time with work and I hardly have the time to check on here anymore :) But I love you ladies!!!! I need to make a better chart to keep up with all my favorites :) I've had a crappy week and weigh in is on Sunday I worry, however, I digress, I did have an idea.....


Head to Head Challenges. Pick a partner or maybe 2 on 2 for Challenges. Winner(s) get bragging rights! Not exactly biggest loser, something more intimate.

Keep the ideas coming! They really do help me come up with creative challenges!

Hi Everyone! I love the idea of a girl nite in pajamas party. I am sure we all need a fresh start in the new year. Looking forward to new challenges and getting back on track. I have slipped way off the track for quite awhile now.

I know we will all "Be looking fine in 2009!!!

I'll start with this stir fry I just made up last week. Chopped peppers, shredded cabbage, carrots, spinach, turkey or chicken. Saute until veggies are a little tender. Put in a salad bowl, add a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and just a little cayenne pepper. I alsolutely crave this. Next time I am gonna add some chick peas to it.
I love eating healthy!

I'm all for the Chat In for sure - that's something everybody can do and it could be a boost when a person is slipping or it could help cheer on someone who may have reached a plateau.

Ladies,

Starting in January, we are going to have a "Get Back To Business" challenge. I have some ideas for the challenge, but I would love to hear your thoughts and concerns. So, please share! I want you and myself to contribute strongly with this team! It will be time to shake off those holiday cookies and treats and get back to business!

I'm all about the comfy pajamas! Okay starting in January, we'll have our Girls' Nite In Pajama Party! More details to come later! We'll do this once a month!

Also, keep the suggestions coming, because it gives me ideas of what to do for the upcoming year!

MMANNEY -I agree with you, its about bonding and I think the chat in is a really great way to do that!

I like the idea of a girls night in chat.

Personally I think it would help me bond with the team more (though, don't get me wrong...I think you all are terrific and certainly very supportive as it is!) which would make me want to check in more often and keep me progressing in my goals overall because of the accountability.

I like that - one night a week chat in! I can do Friday or Saturday night

Cat,

We can start up a daily check-in forum for the team in order to hold one another accountable. That sounds like a plan to me. I will start one in 2009 with the purpose of us having a fresh start. If you have any more ideas, please do not hesitate to share them!

Ladies,

How about once a month, we have a girl's nite in chat? It can be during the week or the weekend! Let me know what you think?

Sincerely,

Stevie

P.S. Please keep the suggestions coming!

Thanks Catt,
Does it work when there is a topic for such, like "Daily Check-In?" Somehow it would be nice to let folks know that it's just a place to 'be' and not necessarily have to prove one's self? Kinda like a journal, only with supportive strangers who become.. well, like friends.

I like that idea, CATALINACAT - even if its just to chec in and say hi to the team, I think its worth it.

I Like the idea of challenges.
They are fun.
One challenge I would like to see is to check into one topic once a day just to 'chat.' Not necessarily under each separate topic. It takes too much time to check each topic to see if you are moved with someone's path. Kinda like having a diary of ups and downs of us all in one place.

Ladies,

Please share any challenges you would like to see in this upcoming year. 2009 is to be the year of fruitfulness and I would like us to be a very productive team in order for us to see a huge difference this time next year. So, please share what you would like to see in 2009! Do you want more team challenges? Do you want more testimonies from other WOAM? Please share what your ideas or concerns are! I want to hear them as well as do something about them. Let's be super fine in 2009! emoticon
