I am in. Would love some help and encouragement. I am having a hard time dealing with this since I have been recently diagnosed with High Blood Pressure. I thought I would give this a try.

Whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have received it,
and it will be yours. (NIV)
Mark 11:24


I only take one day at a time, and not worry about the past. Right now is what is important.

I know its late but im in too!!!

My goals for BLC #18:
Lose 20lbs
Keep on my eating plan
keep on my exercise plan

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom is as great, you have no power over me.

Thanks so much for the invitation to join this challenge. I too am a few days late but am just now checking out all the Spark Mail and found this.
I need motivation right now as I have really slumped over the winter months.

Thank you again. Looking forward to this month of challenges, emoticon


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

I will try to check in frequently, but the video card (part of the mother board) went out on my laptop so I have to use other computers. The old Win 98 computers will do some things but that does not include logging into Spark People.

Ok, I am up for it. This is the right time of year!

Here are my April Goals:
Find my notebook and track my food

Walk a little bit every day, weather permittting (find pedometer)

Dust off the yoga and stability ball or weight dvds try to remember how to make the player work

Dont forget to do my back therapy exercises EVERY DAY, or close enough

Get rid of prednisone weight (6 pounds - NOT seen on my tracker) by the end of the month

You can see I am being easy on myself, but I have had four months from hell, so I plan to do this so it works and doesnt overwhelm me.

Here Comes the Sun!

definitely count me in. My motivation definitely needs some boosting. havent done much since i joined. Tax season is almost over and as office manager of a tax preparation office I can find all sorts of reasons to not focus on me like I should. Time for a change. Thanks for the challenges.

You can do this, 1 choice at a time.

Thanks but I'll be trying the 'Rise and Shine' Challenge which was announced for April. Even though it's kind of unorganized and I even couldn't add it to my streaks it is REALLY very important for me: I'm a long-time night owl and changing this would be a break through. Wish you all good luck in the motivational challenge! emoticon

Does your motivation need a little boost? Join in on the 30 Days of Challenges for the month of April, with a new mini challenge each day. Each day will be in a separate thread, where you can share your response to the challenge, and you can always go back and do one that you missed. It's not mandatory to do them all, of course, but the more you do the more you will be focusing your attention on your reason for being here on Spark People. Everyone that participates will receive a Spark Goodie at the end of the month!

If you have questions you can post them here or send me a Spark Mail.

Sandy
