For the second half of April, here are the first 2 mini challenges:

15.Give yourself a Spark Goodie that represents something that you are using as you work toward a healthier lifestyle (a jumprope? a pedometer? bananas?); tell us what you gave yourself.)


16. Random act of kindness challenge: give someone you don't know -- maybe a busy store clerk, or just someone you pass while walking through the shopping center -- a compliment, or send a note to someone that could use a little cheer (an elderly relative, a coworker that is having problems at home... you get the idea). Now give YOURSELF a compliment -- you've made it to day #16 ! How are you feeling about yourself? You can share as much or as little of this with us as you want.

We're halfway through the month -- tell us how you are doing with the goals you set for April.

Here's a summary of the first 14 days' challenges -- go back and do one of the days you missed, or repeat a day that you particularly enjoyed. (More complete instructions for each one can be found in the posts for the individual days -- be sure to click on "see more topics" to see them all!

(Day #1) Set your goals for the month and share.

(Day #2) Identify possible roadblocks to achieving your goals

(Day #3)Devise a plan for overcoming those hurdles, and share in this thread.


(Day #4) Drink at least 8 cups (total of 64 ounces) of water today.

(Day #5)Do at least 15 minutes of physical activity -- post what you did and for how long, as well as entering your activity in your fitness tracker.

(Day #6) Find a new recipe on Sparkrecipes.com that you want to try and tell us about it.


(Day #7) Use your nutrition tracker and enter everything that you eat and drink; post whether you stayed in your calorie range and what percentage of carbohydrates, protein and fats you consumed. You'll need to check your "daily feedback" for that information -- here's how:

On your Nutrition Tracker, near the top, under the day/date box, click on the button for "daily feedback." Scroll down until you see the "pie chart" showing the carb/fat/protein breakdown. Tell us how you did -- don't worry if it isn't ideal, you won't get any demerits !

NOTE: Per USDA recommendations, the protein/carb/fat distribution should fall in these ranges: 10-35% protein, 20-35% fats (less than 10% saturated fat), 45-65% carbs
(Day #8) Spend at least 15 minutes outdoors; tell us what you did and something that you saw out there that you found interesting (it need not be interesting to anyone but you!). If you like, take a photo and post it on the team photos -- then post a link so we can find it!

(Day #9) Post a blog on your Spark Page, sharing at least 2 things that made you smile today; make a post in this thread letting us know so we can visit your page! (If you don't have your own Spark Page, and don't want one, go ahead and just tell us what made you smile today right here! If you do want a Spark Page, but don't know how to do it, send Sandy a Spark Mail ! Remember, I can't send you a Spark Goodie at the end of the challenge if you don't have a Spark Page to send it to...)

(Day #10) What one thing will you work on changing this week to improve your nutrition and/or fitness?

(Day #11) Post a "huddle" on the team page

(Day #12) Read a motivational article on the SP site and briefly tell us how you can apply the information to your own program
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_
ar
ticles_list.asp

(Day #13) Play the Spark People trivia game until you have 3 correct answers. The game is found in the "wellness" section under the "articles & videos" tab at the top of the page. Be sure to read the information about the question (particularly if you got it wrong).

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/games_h

(Day #14) Try a SparkPeople fitness video that you've never done before and tell us about it; find them under the "articles and videos" tab at the top of the page. Don't forget to collect your Spark Points for watching the video (click on the "get your spark points" button under the video window).

More one day challenges. I'll be adding to this list all week here and by SparkMail. You can do them in any order and each is worth 10 points. Post your points in the appropriate week each Saturday on the tracker that you posted at the beginning of the WRMC. MAX 70 points per week.

Have fun everyone. emoticon

Spend at least 15 minutes outdoors; tell us what you did and something that you saw out there that you found interesting (it need not be interesting to anyone but you!). If you like, take a photo and post it on the team photos -- then post a link so we can find it! Here's how:

Save your photo to your computer in a folder where you can find it again.
Click on the "photos" link on the right side of the team page (under the "view huddle wall/huddle now" button)
Click on "add new photo."
Click on the "choose file" button and locate the photo that you saved to your computer. Type in a caption for your photo.
Click on the "add photo" button and wait for your photo to upload.
Now, to post a link: click on your photo and then click on the address box (which will start with "www.sparkpeople...") to highlight it. Press the CTRL and "C" keys on your computer at the same time to copy the address. Post your message in the thread, then click on "add link" and position your cursor in the box that comes up -- press the CTRL and "V" keys at the same time to insert the address for your photo.
Post your message, and then check your link by clicking on it -- it should take you to your photo.
You're done! (but if you had any problems along the way, please let me know and we'll figure it out!)
New additions:

9. Post a blog on your Spark Page, sharing at least 2 things that made you smile today;

10. What one thing will you work on changing this week to improve your nutrition and/or fitness?

11. Post a "huddle" on the team page.

How many tries did it take you to get 3 correct answers? (Some days are harder than others, and even when you get the answer wrong it's a chance to learn something!)

WRMC Week 4 • 11-15 March

Switch It Up!

How did you do last week? What different things did you try that you like? Since these are baby steps we’re taking, changes can be easy to make and stick with.

This week we’re going to switch, or substitute, a “guilty pleasure” for something healthier. What’s a “guilty pleasure”? It could be that candy bar that’s hard to resist during your afternoon break. Or maybe it’s having dessert on a regular basis. I bet all of us have something we like and have a hard time saying NO if we see it or it’s offered to us.

So this week, you can earn HUGE points by coming to the Wave Runner Chat Room and telling us what you’re switching for something healthier. Maybe that candy bar could be switched for some fresh fruit? Or maybe that dessert that’s hard to resist could be replaced with a fruit salad or something with fewer calories? Like maybe sharing that dessert?

Identify what you’re going to switch and what you’re going to try to replace it with. Do this five times this week and be amazed at the control you’re going to take in eating healthier, getting trimmer, and feeling better!

Here’s our weekly template to help you keep track. When you’re done, add your points to your WRMC template by EDITING it. Each day is worth 100 points! That’s 500 points for the week! You can do it! Take it one baby step at a time, one day at a time, one bite at a time!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

MON: I switched _______________for ___________________ (100 points)
TUE: I switched _______________ for ___________________ (100 points)
WED: I switched _______________for ___________________ (100 points)
THU: I switched _______________ for ___________________ (100 points)
FRI: I switched ________________for ___________________ (100 points)

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

Week 3 • 3-9 March 2013
WRMC

Something Different

emoticon How did you do last week? By now your main template should be posted on the Springing Into Action site, and your WRMC also posted on the Wave Runner site. I hope you took the opportunity to thank two of the hardest workers who make these challenges possible. Not everyone is willing or as devoted as Margomaniac and InspireByNature to work so hard without compensation.

For this week, we’re focusing on shaking things up a little bit. It’s easy for a routine to become a rut, and for boredom to turn into bad eating habits. Let’s shake things up by doing something small but completely different every day, Monday through Friday. Examples you might want to try include eating something different (like tofu, Greek yogurt, or have a meatless dinner), trying a different exercise (check out the Spark videos), eating a healthy snack, drinking more water (instead of soda), going to bed earlier (like half an hour), menu planning, making a list of 5 things you’re grateful for…these are a few examples. Then, once you’ve done it, come to the WR Chat Room and tell us about it. Tell us what you did and how you felt. Would you do it again?

Please remember to EDIT your template instead of starting a new one. Each day you try something different and post your feedback on the WR Chat Thread, you’ll earn 20 points. That’s a total of 100 points for this week’s WRMC.

Did I hear someone say BONUS???! OK, this week’s Bonus is an extra 10 points for each day you post on the WR Huddle thread. So your bonus is worth an additional 50 points. By next Saturday morning, you could earn as many as 150 points (WRMC and Bonus). Please make sure your points are recorded by 7:00 PM (your own time zone) on Saturday, 9 March. Here’s a daily template to help you keep track of your points:

MON: _______ + Bonus Points _______ = ________
TUES: _______ + Bonus Points _______ = ________
WEDN: ______ + Bonus Points _______ = ________
THUR: _______ + Bonus Points _______ = ________
FRI: _________ + Bonus Points _______ = ________

TOTAL POINTS for this week (MAX 150): ________

emoticon Have fun and TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!! emoticon

I am tired of lying to myself. I am ready to set boundaries and own my life. I want to treat myself like the treasure I am.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

What would it be like if you lived each day, each breath, as a work of art in progress? Imagine that you are a masterpiece unfolding, every second of every day, a work of art taking form with every breath."~Thomas Crum

Week Two MON-FRI, 25 Feb - 1 March, 2013
Wave Runner Mini Challenge
Spring 2013


Starting off with baby steps has to be some of the best advice we read about here on Spark. So….here’s our baby steps for this week – we’re keeping them short and sweet, but you’ll get out of them whatever you put into them!

For this week, since we’re starting a wee bit late, you can make up Monday’s part of the challenge when you do TUESDAY’s. Next week we’ll be back to the MONDAY – FRIDAY routine.

For each day you huddle on the Wave Runner huddle, you earn 5 points.
If you also huddle on the Springing to Action team huddle, you earn another 5 points. Got that? You can earn a total of 10 points a day OR a maximum of 50 points for participating each day, MON - FRI. and if you post on BOTH of team’s huddle thread.

Have you started your template for Springing to Action yet? HURRY!!! This one is worth 50 points! Get ‘er done ASAP!!

And that’s just how easy our WRMC is this week! By participating in this week’s mini challenge, you help build a positive vibe and our team starts to gel as we get to know each other.

Want to do more? OK, let’s have a little bonus…stop by Margomaniac’s SparkPage AND InspireByNature’s Sparkpage and tell them how much you appreciate their hard work putting these Done Girl challenges together season after season, year after year. There’s a lot of hard work and love that goes into these challenges, so show your gratitude for these ladies who take time along with their other responsibilities to keep our teams going and challenges alive. Please … DO NOT TELL THEM THIS IS YOUR BONUS FOR THE MINI CHALLENGE!!! Just be your sweet little self!

emoticon Use this template below to help you keep score for this week. Then, add your daily scores on Saturday and place your weekly total on the 02 March line on the template you'll update each week (It's the one in the post before this one). MAX points this week: 150
MON:_____
TUES: _____
WED: ______
THURS:______
FRI: _______

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

This is the space for Wave Runners to post their WRMC points.

Decorate your template however you wish, but post it ONLY ONCE and update/edit it by Saturday 7:00 PM (during your own time zone).

Here is the TEMPLATE that you'll COPY and PASTE on this same thread:

POINTS
Week 1 (23 Feb):........... XXX
Week 2 (02 Mar): .......... XXX
Week 3 (09 Mar): .......... XXX
Week 4 (16 Mar): .......... XXX
Week 5 (23 Mar): ...........XXX

Week 17 (15 Jun):...........XXX

emoticon BONUS: 50 TOTAL points for both "Thank you" posts on their thread. NO POINTS for just one post. You earn either 50 points or 0 points for this bonus.

These challenges are Wave Runner Challenges ONLY and NOT Springing to Action Challenges. Again, each member needs to post only ONE Template on this thread and then EDIT it with each week's points you earn. Any questions, please Spark Mail Lucky-13 and Margomaniac as that is the quickest way to get an answer.

Each Week the challenge is worth a MAX of 100 points - unless there is a bonus. We are having ONLY 5-day mini-challenges...Monday to Friday...NO WEEKENDS.
