For all of those who read the July team rankings - here is your challenge I promised.
After looking at my rankings in all my teams for the last few months I decided that I needed to make a change. I rank well in SparkPoints each month, not so well in Fitness Points. Based on your responses, I am not alone. And moving more is key to increasing your health.
Challenge: I challenge the team to join me in working toward shrinking the difference between monthly Spark points and Fitness Points. For me that means a bit less SP points on the games and fun stuff, and more on moving this body!
Rules: Just one= Move more and log it! I will use the ranks for August, comparing them to July, to determine all those who met the challenge. There will be SparkGoodies for all of those who meet the challenge. For some of us a small change will be enough to meet this challenge. Some of us already are rocking our exercise, but anyone who who logs 100more fitness points than last month will meet the challenge.
For the team: use this string to check in, give each other encouragement and talk about your progress. Post any links to helpful exercise or articles that you found that inspired you.
If anyone has some special pysical limitations, let me know and I will help you find some exercises you can still do. I have knee injuries that limit some of my movement so I am used to finding a workaround.
For those with a sedentary office job, here is some help www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellness_arti
Here is a bank of stretching exercise to do once an hour while sitting to help keep the blood flowing and the mind alert! www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellness_arti
READY, SET, GO TEAM!!!
Remember - if you use a stationary machine you can read the BOMC pick for August at the same time!
