Thanks for the input, Vicki! I need cooperation and suggestions from the Team or I'm lost! That's why I'm so glad some of our newest members began this thread in the first place!

We actually only have (had) two goals for the team - a daily rosary one combined with cardio - but it was for advent, so I took it down. Our only other one right now is a daily Hail Mary as the rosary was a little much for some of our members. I will probably keep that one going, but would welcome suggestions from anyone else for new ones.

Or, alternately, we can take part in the new challenge being held as we speak (starting Monday, I forgot to say).

It's at this thread:

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Hey CJ. Hope the beginning of the year has been very good and indicative of the quality of 2010 for you.

My input, for what its worth....Any challenge you come up with will be good. I like the camaraderie of working with the team to achieve common goals.

In no way am I in favor of removing all the current team challenges. I like them immensely. (Unless, of course, there is a consensus that change is indicated.)

Have a good one.....from the 'new' girl with the big mouth...LOL

Hi guys.

You beat me to the idea - I was totally planning on suggesting a January challenge. Thanks for posting your ideas!

Honestly, when I began co-leading the team, Jocelyn and I ran some challenges but they started off well, and then sort of fizzled out as people lost interest.

I am very willing to run more, though, if you guys are interested.

How about a 'back to basics' one, which allows us to pick our own challenge, but lets us have a bit of friendly competition at the same time?

I'll have a think and then post in the challenges thread when I have one all sorted out. I'll also send a message to the Team letting everyone now what is happening.

I will also remove the old challenges/goals, and post new ones if you like. I need some input for that one though.

I'll start a new thread for that.

I like the idea of a monthly challenge that incorporates our journey to a healthier individual with our catholicism.

For what it's worth, my opinion is that the 8 glasses of water is quite redundant when you notice the frequency of this on other team goals, as well as a daily Spark Challenge on our nutrition goals.

The idea of incorporating a mystery of the rosary while walking is a super idea. I think I heard Mother Mary give you a resounding YES!

Tracking foods is valuable because it contributes to our daily accountability AND provides us with satisfying (or not) feedback on a regular basis.

Thanks for listening. I'll watch for edits to the team goals in the near future.

I like this idea. I'll join you in any case, in any of those three challenges.

"My life flows on in endless song above earth's lamentation. I hear the real though far-off hymn that hails a new creation. No storm can shake my inmost calm while to that rock I'm clinging. It sounds and echoes in my soul. How can I keep from singing?"

While I value the spiritual component of the healthy person, could we also add a health and fitness challenge to our team? I would think our reason for being on Spark firstly is to become healthier and the choice to join this team was to be healthier but sharing it with other Catholics.

Possibiliites...

daily tracking food
daily 8 glasses of water
Daily walking at least 30 min (add a mystery of the Rosary to our walk)

Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.
