Thanks Sara...beginning of month is a great time for a new challenge...positive accomplishments in the next 30 days are vital springboards for "the holidays", which, unfortunately, for most, are potential times of abandon in several areas.

The 5% challenge is doable and encouraging!! Great suggestion!!

Anyone else want to chime in?...

I love 5% challenges. I love seasonal challenges. Usually about the basics - weight, excercise accountability, checking in regularly??

I would think this would be a great time to start something up - before the Holidays.. and tomorrow is Oct. 1 !! Hmmmm....

Trying to get a feel as to how team members wish to move forward with challenges.

Certainly some of you envision or are a part of other teams that have great ideas in the way of intermittent (weekly?/17 day?/monthly?) challenges that allow you to participate in, silently watch or occasionally comment on the journey.

So, here is a list of questions to help refine the inquiry...comments welcome as well...

1. Do you enjoy having the option of a challenge?
2. If yes, what about frequency/duration?
a. quarterly/seasonally? yes/no/not so much
b. monthly? yes/no/not so much
c. 17 days? yes/no/not so much
3. Focused or Diverse?
(ie Focused (single accomplishment)
Setting a drinking daily water quota and recording daily outside of tracker
Eating the rainbow in veggies - recording daily achievements
NOT eating some specific thing (added sugar, etc)
Daily Exercise/Meditation/Sleep/etc
Weigh daily or Delay weighing for entire cycle
Blog daily or 3 times a week
Check in daily
(ie Diverse (multiple goals offered)
Pick your own areas
Exercise 17 minutes/10 glasses water/3 green tea
Declutter/Decide/Donate
Jog/Journal/Join In

4. Don't ask me...just come up with something and I will join in if I feel like it!

5. I saw this in another group and it sounds like fun (describe)

Any input appreciated!
