1/3 of 2019 ~ What can I accomplish???

Normally, we think of the year in quarters, yet, - I woke up this morning and realized that - just like that - it is September 1st! Since I like to start things on the 1st and I like to start things on the first day of the month *and* the first day of the week, I thought that today would be a great day to mark a (another) fresh start.

First, I searched online for a calculator of days left in 2019. Here is what I found:

emoticon Days left in 2019:
~ From and including: Sunday, September 1, 2019
~ To and including: Tuesday, December 31, 2019
~ ~ ~ Result: 122 days
It is 122 days from the start date to the end date, end date included. Or 4 months including the end date.

emoticon 122 days can be converted to one of these units:
10,540,800 seconds
175,680 minutes
2928 hours
122 days
17 weeks and 3 days
33.42% of 2019

My journey on SP began when I joined on 8/31/08 ~ so, this marks the beginning of my 11th year here on SP. I remember that year as I had seen a news clip/interview with Chris Downie and decided to check out the site. It was also a Labor Day weekend when I joined in 2008 and I remember really 'working the program' the day after Labor Day.

Here I am again - in the same spot, ready to reset my goals and 'begin again'. Have I failed through the years? NO! I've made progress, stalled and even 'fell off the wagon', but I would not consider any of those things as a failure. I consider my time here as an ever-changing learning experience and always 'a work in progress'. Without this site, I'm not sure where I would be.

One thing I can say is that this site has been an incredible support system and my SparkFriends here have helped me through the years in good times and in bad. SparkPeople has been a constant for me and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Are YOU looking to join me in beginning again; a 'fresh start'? Very soon, we will be opening our 2019 Fall 5% Community and welcoming new members. What is a 5% Challenge you ask? Here is the description on the 5% Challenge Community Team page:
