    CONGRATULATIONS on your third week, Casual Traveler!

    We're 3 weeks into our journey and we made it to Lisbon Portugal, logging 8,515 exercise miles, 1,403 points for Team Portion control and measuring as well as 1,110 points for Nutrition Tracking and it looks like we've had a nice overall loss again this week!

    During this week, if you acheived the results you wanted, or surprised yourself with better than expected results, congratulations!! Well done!!

    If you feel your results were not what you wanted to see... (I would count myself in this sentiment) then time for the decision to make this a better week! Tracking is a great way to see exactly what we eat and exercising is also a great way to move things along (Yes, bad pun intended).

    Regardless, You should be proud of yourself for sticking with it, and pat yourself on the back for that very reason!! Very Well done!!! Be very proud of what you've accomplished!!

    Let's get excited about this, the 4th week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward regina canada, 4,449 exercise miles away. This is our closest destination yet and we very well could land earlier this week than last.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is No Random Eating (NRE) and we are again logging MEASURE EVERYTHING! Portion control from last week's LGTL.

    Also, remember that while water tracking and Nutrition Tracking have dropped from the challenge numbers, please make sure to keep hydrating and tracking because those two things are very helpful and very important, particularly when traveling during a 5% challenge when it comes to success.

    So how do you get points when it comes to No Random Eating(NRE)?

    This means, for the challenge: You decide what event, common activity, place, time, etc. where you will not eat each day. It can be a different activity, function or event each day if you like. If you successfully resist eating in the situation you chose, then count 10 points for the day; if you don't, then you would count 0 points for the day. This is another all or nothing challenge.

    For example, My work day is ever changing and my goal this week will be the same for each day: NO RANDOM EATING between dinner and bed. I'm keeping mine the same because that's where my challenge occurs - every, darned night. On the days I'm successful, I will post 10 points and on those I 'm not; I'll post 0. (Please feel free to check up on me if you want. Might give me more incentive emoticon )

    This week again is MEASURE EVERYTHING! Portion control 5 points are earned for each meal where you measure/weigh all your food and drinks. 5 points for each meal, 3 meals a day. This means a Daily MAXIMUM of 15 points. If you don't MEASURE EVERYTHING for a particular meal, that meal would be 0 points.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile and exercise should be reported after completion.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to participate to the best of their abilities. Please make sure to log all of your LTGL points & exercise miles for the day as often as possible; the sooner our points are posted, the sooner we land our plane.
    We, the casual Travelers, are one of more than 10 teams trying to reach our destination before anyone else. Also keep in mind that at the latest any/all Week 4 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, November 1st.

    Have fun and enjoy this leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is Candy bar(s)!

    Every Wednesday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge will be offered that will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    Please have a great week, have fun with the challenge and make sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs. Please also check YOUR Spark Page and look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie

    CONGRATULATIONS on your second week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Mexico city, Mexico, logged 9,304 exercise miles, 1,520 points for Nutrition Tracking, 1,536 points for water and it looks like we have a nice overall loss for the week!

    You should be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, regardless of your results. Very Well done!!!

    Let's get excited about this, the 3rd week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward Lisbon, Portugal which is 5,397 exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Portion Control & Measures and we are again logging Nutrition tracking from last week's LGTL.

    While water tracking has dropped from the challenge, please make sure to keep hydrating because it's very important, particularly when traveling

    So what exactly do you get points for when it comes to Portion Control & Measures?

    This means, for the challenge: MEASURE EVERYTHING! Portion control is earned for
    each meal where you measure/weigh all your food and drinks. 5 points for each meal,
    3 meals a day. This means a Daily MAXIMUM of 15 points. If you don't MEASURE EVERYTHING for a particular meal, that meal would be 0 points.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile.

    Nutrition Tracking is 10 points if you track ALL your meals/snacks food for the day; if you don't track 100 %; please do not log any points. This is an all or nothing record. (This is also not the same as MEASURE EVERYTHING - one is measuring and the other is putting everything you eat into your tracker).

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to
    participate to the best of their abilities, so please make sure to log all of your water & exercise miles before 11:59PM Friday, October 25th.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is girl's names!

    Every Wednesday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge will be offered that will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    Please have a great week, have fun with the challenge and make sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs. Please also look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    counted as 1 point with an 8 cup maximum to be recorded.
