No, it's not to late at all. I will probably take people up until 2/28. But I can always add people to the teams! Thank you and you can look for the teams to be posted probably by the end of February. I will send you an email!

@ Booberdoodles- I would love to do one for April if people are still interested! And keep in mind the chat is only worth 5 points a day. So if you do other things that is fine. Another thing you can do is just not participate for a week.

I average the teams to make it far so if one team has 10 and one team has 12 the one with 12 won't automatically win. I have had this happen several times when I've participated in the challenges. Because I want people to participate even if they are on vacation. Just something to think about. I understand if you just want to wait until April. We will be here!

I think I will pass on this one right now. There is one week in March where I will be visiting a friend I haven't seen in a couple of years,so the last thing I will remember would to be to check the message boards. Are you planning one for April?

Hey I'll do it for sure :D

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs and the voice in your head that yells "CAN'T!". But don't listen. Just push harder. Then you'll hear the voice whisper "can". That's when you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are."

I'm so glad we are going to have the challenge! So what I will do is divide you into 2 or 3 groups. The first week will include introducing yourselves and you will set a weekly goal. I let you pick it whether it's a number of minutes, miles or a time on a 5k.

I will have 2 threads set up. One with the chat room where you chat with your team. And the other with the challenge so you can go and update it. At the end of the week you will submit your totals to me with your team name.

These challenges have been really successful and help motivate people and you get to know other sparkers. I think I will have the challenge start on March 1st and since it's a longer month will have the weeks be 8 days except the last week.

If anyone has any ideas for team names go ahead and tell them to me! I was going to go with a St. Patty's day theme. Shamrocks, Leprechauns, etc.

Hope this helps!

I know, I try to keep it as simple as possible but want a motivating challenge also. Here are some examples of what you do in a week:
daily chat- 5 points
exercise every minute is worth a point
get 8 hrs of sleep for 10 points
take trivia quiz and give yourself whatever points you scored

Here are other things..blogs, reading articles, spinning the wheel, no sweets, sometimes if a holiday is coming up I will have you make a healthy treat. I had a challenge where you get someone to exercise that normally doesn't. And I am always up for suggestions.

So each week it's only 4-5 things. The daily chat will always be there, something with exercise, usually something with nutrition and then something fun & spark based.

Hope that helps!

What kind of challenges are you thinking of? What kind of rules are you putting on the challenges? I'd love to get into a challenge but I sometimes drop out when I don't enjoy the challenges or don't have enough time. I know I'm going to be super busy the first 2 weeks of March but plan on still making time for fitness.

Hello!

I was thinking about starting a BSG (buddy support group) team challenge. I would divide the participants up into teams and have different challenges worth points every week. I have been doing these since September and started being in charge of them in January with another team and they were very successful!

If you would like to participate just sign up in this forum. Challenge starts Tuesday March 1st.

Thank you!

Andrea
