Let's see, we now have 10 members!! That makes me very happy. It would be nice for other to join, but that's ok, I'm happy so many of my buds have joined me on this journey. emoticon

All this week, I have enjoyed coming here and coming up with new forums/topics. It was sreally wonderful of Irish to help out with the games when I asked her. Isn't she terrific? I think coming up with a list of possible new things for members to try was a challenge, but also a great deal of fun.

When I put everything together my conclusion is my first challenge was a success for me!! And one I really enjoyed.

I pray that my focus remains on good health to the temple God provides me and good Christian stewardship of His word and will for my life. My first week more than met my expectations:

1) Join a new Spark Team: "New Year, New Things 52 in 2013" 1/4/13
2) Begin a weekly diary/report of all my "new" activities 1/4/13
3) Capture one something new in a digital photograph 1/4/13
4) Mail out two 12th Day of Christmas presents today! 1/5/13
5) Share a beautiful prayer by SparkFriend SWEETLIPS:

“Heavenly Father, please help me to uphold my commitment to gaining positive health. Transform my thinking about food at a pace that is right for me so that I make choices that are consistent with weight loss and gaining health. Clear my mind of dieting and nutrition dogma that confuses, misleads me and cause me to not be as healthy as you have desired for me when I was just a thought in your mind and before creation of me in my mother’s womb. Order my footsteps so that I avoid eating out of control and to eat only when I am actually hungry and in need of fuel. Order my steps so that I resist the urge to eat when I am not hungry. Encourage me, Lord through your grace and merciful love, when I am down, afraid, angry, or any non-positive emotion to be honest with myself when it is difficult. Help me to forgive myself and others for any past indiscretions that I absorbed that have led to my weight gain. Help me Father to feel comfortable and satisfied in the shape that I am now and the resultant shape and size that you have for me. Fill my mind with truth and guide my footsteps in the best way to gain health, lose excess weight and glorify you. Thank You for Your endless mercy and grace. Amen. "

Week Two
6) Begin 7-day streak: 15 minutes (min) of de-clutter
7) Try a new workout: SP 6-Minute Hips, Glutes & Thighs Video
8) Take down Christmas tree (day after the 12th Day of Christmas)
9) Begin a new color (Seafoam) Prayer Shawl
10) Complete a 7 days streak of recording all outgoing monies
11) Begin a Bible Read Through in 2013 (1.5-2 hrs/week)

Wow, Debbie! I could never get through yours. One week, maybe. All year, no way! Too many of our appointments are way out of town and if we want to eat, we do it out. Bob especially, is controlling his diabeties with food and exercise. He must eat every so many hours.

Snowshoeing, eh? I dont think I could handle cold like that anymore. How brave you are!!

Kat, is the gym something new for you? I was going 3X a week when I injured my right knee in 2001 and had to have surgrey. It hasnt been the same since!! Since then our Y closed and the fitness center that opened at the same location, was forced to leave when the building owner didnt keep up with the mortgage.

For myself, I have never started a team from scratch. Starting this team is a brand new experience for me and my something new for our very first week of 2013. Im going to continue working hard on it all year, of course, but especially so this first week to get us going!!

My new challenge is not to eat out during 2013.

I need to lose weight and save money. I "blame" both issues on eating out so much.

Therefore, I will be cooking and dining in.

After joining the team a few minutes ago, I called a friend and made a "date" to go snowshoeing on Saturday. It's something I've never done before and been wanting to try (only if the weather warms up to at least the upper 20s!) I'm hoping the weatherman is correct in his prediction that it will be in the 30s on the weekend.

My new challenge this week is to go to the gym at least three times, regardless of work etc..I need to get back into exercise, and being accountable is a good way to do it!
