Ok, I believe I sent everybody an invite. I created a private team so that we would have the ability to do more things within our group. I wish I could take credit for the idea, but I got the idea from another team. :-) So our link to our new group is http://teams.sparkpeople.com/diva19.

Hello Divas! I hope you had a fabulous day.

JaxKat68 You have me cracking up. It can be no joke dealing with folk and Aunt Flo. I know it had to be difficult getting that cardio in while you were on a business trip. Furthermore, this was a short week for us. The challenge started for us on Tuesday. I know I was thrown off with the WIs coming in on Friday. So now well get it in next week with our first full week. Have a safe trip back home!

I think we can keep a weekly log in here that we can edit on a daily basis for our exercise. Well start a new one for each week. Ill do an example for this week as well as start mine for next week.

LGriggs Dont be discouraged about not losing any weight this week. Once again, we weighed in 3 days ago. Youre going to rock this next week!

HEROWNBEAT I think you would make a good leader as well.
Yesterday I walk 60minutes, it was raining so no cardio. I have not loss any weight this weekemoticon. I really love SwanSwan Ideas. Keep me posted I will work my scheduled around you all. I work 2nd shift and I get up most morning at 6AM

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Good Morning...HerOwnBeat I think you would be a
great team leader...So I nominate you...I have not achieved the 4x a week goal this week...

This business trip has been hectic these nickelodeons are really working my nerves...Trying to deal with different personalities along with Aunt Flo is not easy...

Aunt Flo should be headed out the door and I will be headed back home tomorrow...

Is there a special page that we will be logging in our weight and daily exercise...

Don't cry because it's OVER- Smile because it happened...

Good Evening/Morning Divas! Today is my rest day so I didn't do any cardio today. I'll do some ab work before I go to bed tonight.

Does somebody want to lead us to victory??? If no one else is interested in being the team leader, I will do it.

Don't forget tomorrow is WI day. emoticon Good luck to everybody!!! Let's have the best losses this week!!!!

Good Morning Devastating Divas,

Swanswan your plan sounds like a good idea. Since we now have a team name we need a team leader. Is there anyone willing to except the role?

I'll try a pedometer then. I was looking at one on Amazon.

Well I'm off to do some cardio and strength training.

Have a great day!

Welcome Swanswan! I think you have some great ideas. I especially like accountability buddy. The hardest one is going to be setting a time to meet since were coming from a variety of time zones. If anything, we may have to just choose a day.like Motivation Monday.

Sgarcia, I wear a pedometer on a daily basis. I try to get 10,000 steps a day. I enjoy it because its a mini challenge for me, and I find that Im more active throughout the day. I also got mine at Wal-Mart.

It looks like Devastating Divas will be our name unless anybody has an objection.

Today I had a mini walk while I was at work for 15 minutes. Tonight, I walked outside for 47 minutes. Normally, I would have just said 45 but since we are in a competition those 2 minutes may be needed if we tie with another teamLOL

Have a great night!!!

LADIES,

THIS THE FIRST TIME I REPLIED SINCE THE BLC STARTED. I WANTED TO SAY HELLO TO ALL MY TEAMMATES!!!

THE TEACHER IN ME THINKS THAT OUR SUCCESS LIES IN A STRUCTURED ROUTINE THAT ALL AGREE TO COMMIT TO DOING. FOR EXAMPLE,
1. WE HAVE A GET UP AND GO SONG FOR THE MORNING
2. WE SET A TIME TO LOG ON AND DISCUSS & MOTIVATE.
3. WE HAVE A WEEKLY WEIGH IN TIME
4. WE PAIR UP TO HAVE SOMEONE TO "ANSWER" TO.
5. ANY OTHER SUGGESTED THINGS THAT CAN LEAD US TO VICTORY.
6. PICK A LEADER

IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE CAN "BUY INTO" LET'S GET TOGETHER A.S.A.P TO GET THE BALL ROLLING.

It's seems we are all doing great in the cardio department. JAXKAT68 AND SGARCIA sorry to hear about aunt flo, it is rare for me to she her but when she finally does pay a visit i thinks she brings her whole family. So I feel your pain. I really like the name Devastating Divas.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Hey Ladies! I'm not the team leader. We still need to pick one so if you're interested It seems like people like the name Devastating Divas so do you all agree on that for a team name?

I did 30 mins of walking on Monday and 45 mins of dancing yesterday. Keep up the good work ladies!

Hey ladies. Thanks for the love. Ladies tell Aunt Flo she isn't stopping anything here. She might as well do here thing and get out of dodge!!! So far today I have walked for 65 mins and completed half of my strength training. After working last night, I was tired and needed a nap. I'll finish up after I get my son from school. Keep it going ya'll.

Good Evening (Morning or Afternoon to you all due to time differences). JAXKAT68 you're not alone, she came to visit me this morning as well. I was wondering the same thing as far as the team name and team leader.

Well I got my cardio in for the day and did 50 minutes on the treadmill this morning. Hopefully my weight won't be affected due to TOM.

How's everyone else doing? I hope you all have/had a blessed day.

I've had my share. The best one was a freebie. I died last week. The one I am currently using came from Wal Mart and cost about $10; it's okay.
