I've been on SparkPeople for awhile but I haven't really used the community side. I'm hoping to meet some other people, which will make me feel more apart and accountable.

For the past several months I was training for an 18 mile fundraiser walk for suicide prevention. Now that it is completed I started this challenge to continue my momentum.

Just joining the team. This is my first week in SparkPeople and I'm still trying to learn my way around. One of my biggest stumbling blocks is exercise. I'm hoping that this challenge will help me stay motivated and on track.

My goal is simple: Do a minimum of 10 minutes more of exercising every day - this is in addition to the 20 minutes of cardio that I try to do, but can't quite get committed to.

My plan is to track this goal, as well as the others I committed to, but started slacking-off on. . .nothing like shooting yourself in the foot.

Hello everyone,

Just joining Spark this week. On day 6 today and saw this challenge. Seems to be a good starting point to get more exercise in.
Good luck to everyone.

This will be the second time I have tried to complete this challenge. I never made it past day 2 before. Recently in March I had triple bypass surgery and I have been making huge changes in my life due to this. Exercising is one of them. I am excited about completing this challenge.

Hello, I am new. I have a goal to lose 50. I am about 2 weeks in so far. I have been doing the 10 minutes daily +, but needed to set a minimum outside of normal. Can someone tell me if the program will automatically track?. Otherwise I will need to figure out how to track.

Hello, everyone! I joined sparkpeople several years ago, but did not get involved in the community! So I've had little success. This time, I plan on joining teams and challenges to help me on my path to wellness :)

Thanks in advance for the support!

I'm Kayleigh, 28, married, have three kids. In January 2014 after my youngest was born I suffered multiple pulmonary embolisms. Last week I lost my job. I am tired of being depressed, morbidly obese, and feeling awful. It's time for a change. I weigh 377 currently and am 5'7".

Kayleigh - happily married, "crunchy" mama to three boys, amateur storm chaser, photographer, and a woman with a LOT of weight to lose.

Excited to be joining this challenge!!! I'm an energetic 56-year-old, joined sparkpeople little over a year ago. Have been losing consistently, slowing, the right way. Need to continue on my journey, and hoping to kick-start my metabolism. I've already tweaked my eating as much as I can, and I exercise intensely 5-days a week already (spinning classes), but maybe adding a challenge into my routine will "spark" me on to more weight lose. Hoping to make some friends along the way! emoticon

Hi I'm Kim and I'm 37 yrs old (turning 38 soon, in July). I have started and stopped exercise so many different times. If one little things interrupts my workout routine, I'm done...for a long time. I'm hoping to gain some inspiration & motivation to get moving every single day and 10 minutes, 5 times a week sounds like a great way to start.

Hi. I'm Barb, age 61, rejoining SparkPeople, with SparkCoach this time. Is just walking enough to join this challenge? I know that I can't push too hard, too fast, and even walking briskly isn't right for me yet. I anticipate doing more as I become stronger. I need encouragement to do 'something' consistently though, rather than just: when I feel like it, or the weather's good, or I have no pain, or my girls walk with me or...

Hi All.
My name is Jenn and I am new to this team.

I work from home and my job consists of me sitting for hours on end. I decided to join this team to help motivate me to get up and moving....even if it's for only 10 minutes at a time :)
