    DONE! Been trying to pep myself up for months now, and this quickie (i just did wkout #6) was perfect. I feel fabulous, thx SP for the motivation!!!
  • This idea is nothing short of brilliant, and why this is Day 204 for me. Spark on!

    My knees will not tolerate jogging and jumping jacks but I CAN add 5 minutes more to my walks. Five minutes a day adds up.
  • For me, this is an amazing alternative because I've always had this "all or nothing" mentality when it comes to exercise. Additionally, consistency has been a major struggle for me when it comes to diet and exercise, so I'm super stoked to attempt this solution.

  • The Wisconsin Milwaukee Team has a challenge on Right Now, that is very very very similar to this article. As a matter of fact, I just huddled in on it, on Monday, 3/28/11 and began the challenge a few days before Monday.

    I wonder how am I to track these small challenges to my fitness tracker, as it is I am exercising in small bits and trying to remain consistent with my scheduled fitness plan. I appreciate the motivational pointers within this article.

    I love this idea! I am struggling with going like gang-busters and then quitting for a week, then going again for a week, then quitting for a week. I think I should try this! I will!

  • The QuickFire Challenge is helping me into these habits, too.

    I AM GOING TO TRY THIS EVEN IF I WORK BOTH JOBS I SHOULD BE ABLE TO SPARE 10 MINS NO EXCUSES
  • I love this idea!

  • The second person in the article: that could very easily be me. I look forward to doing what she "will" do.
  • Mr. Spark must have a crystal ball because I feel he wrote this article for me. I just can't seem to motivate myself. I'm tired all the time, when I get home from work all I want to do is lie down. I took a good assesment of myself over the week-end and know I need to start eating the right foods, take Vitamins and exercise. I check this email this morning and SURPRISE I find this article. IiT WAS A GREAT SHOT IN THE ARM.
