Hi Everyone!

Sorry I haven't written in a while. But I've been working on a project that will be probably our biggest and best upgrade ever. And one fun point is that it's partly inspired by the small goals commitment team and concept :).

Here is a fun video that fits reaching one small goal at a time if you haven't seen this one (and fits this project):

Here is the direct link to YouTube if the video doesn't show up for you:

Does this motivate you to get up and take action?

This was from a commencement speech. On that note, I did a commencement speech this past weekend for a small college in Cincinnati named Mount Saint Joseph University. I'll write more about this experience and share my script if you are interested.

You can even call me Dr. SparkGuy after this because I earned a doctorate degree out of this :).



Here is the link to the team if you haven't joined yet (we're over 2,000 members!):

Here is the button to press. Each time you press the button, the number of total presses will increase by one as a way to show that we're all part of something bigger -- a community of people reaching goals together!

Below is overview information for the challenge:

If you haven't seen this yet, here is the original announcement for this challenge:

And here is the link to the SparkPeople Fuel for Improvement System Overview that lists all of the current lessons and activities:

In addition to pressing the button, if you like posting comments, feel free to make a comment in each blog. I love seeing all the comments on the first blog with people saying "I commit to.......". Also feel free to post/track any of those goals to the community goals feed if you'd like.

Come back and push the button as many times during the day as you'd like to re-affirm your commitment -- like if you are wavering on making a healthy vs. unhealthy choice or just need a little extra push. All you need to do is refresh the page and the button will also refresh. Remember to subscribe to my blog if you would like to get an email alert right when I publish.

The button will remain on my blogs for now, but we might move it to a more prominent location at some point.

I am committed to a couple of goal right now:
1) Getting this challenge launched. I think this could be a lot of fun and a big way to help people, so I will work on this almost every day at least some.
2) I'm working to build the fitness level for my kids in various ways that I'll share more about on future blogs.
3) A commitment to keep my 10+ fitness minutes streak going.

SparkCheers and thanks for your support!

Chris (SparkGuy)
