It is Day #1 of 2021 ~ Happy New Year!!! I just got a call from our Occupational Health Department, based on the fact that my symptoms have resolved themselves, and I have no new symptoms, I officially no longer need to quarantine.
Now - what is the best way to celebrate? One ‘constant’ for me seems to be checking into 'SparkPeople' and the beginning of 2021 is no different than the beginning of many other January 'firsts' since I found this site.
My plan for this year: Continue on my 'healthy lifestyle journey' with the help of this wonderful site. Besides this site and the wonderful information included, I plan to participate in the following:
Are you looking for a way to get fit, lose weight, meet new friends (or reconnect with familiar SparkFaces) ~ and have some fun while you are at it? Please check out the 2021 Winter 5% Challenge, our very FIRST challenge of a bright and shiny New Year! The brainchild of our Overall Leader, Lynn (KALISWALKER), the idea behind the challenges is that team members work towards losing 5% of their starting weight in an eight (8) week timeframe. Participants work together in team challenges that focus on exercise and forming meaningful, healthy habits, basically you strive to incorporate these habits into your own healthy lifestyle. Our SparkFriends and SparkFamily members (many join the site with family members) who are maintaining but may be looking for continued motivation are also welcome! The 5% Challenges encourage fun, friendship and working toward YOUR fabulous frame! January 9, 2021 is the date that we plan to begin although the leadership reserves the right to adjust the start date if we feel the need to do so. I invite you to visit the ‘2021 Winter 5% Challenge Community’ and make a deal with yourself to make 2021 the year where you discover YOUR BEST SELF! Here is the link: www.sparkpeople.

Emily (_WARRIOR4LIFE) had a wonderful idea to walk 2020 miles in 2020. She formed the team. Of course, not everyone can walk 2020 miles in a year ~ yet there are some people that probably walk more (most, like me will walk less); so – the team was formed to encourage members to make a contract with themselves to reach a walking goal in 2020. This team was the ‘social vehicle’ that some of us enjoy as well as ‘the place to log your progress’ and keep track of daily/weekly and monthly goals that you set for yourself. We are bringing the concept back for 2021. Start date is January 1, 2021. It is the PERFECT COMPLIMENT to the 2021 Seasonal 5% Challenges.
In 2021, why don’t you commit to virtually JOURNEY with me from one place to another experiencing ADVENTURES (and SparkFriendships) along the way? I hope that 2021 brings you beautiful VISTAS of hope for the future.
Please reach out to me if you are looking for a little more information ~ once again:
HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ 2021!!!!!!!!!!
