Hi!!!

1) Each of the Weekly Challenges are listed under the Games and Challenges Forum. Just click "See All Topics."

2) If all that you are doing is walking the dog, you may want to try a few of the beginner's exercises; however, it's all up to you. If you're not being challenged, try the intermediate level. You can also mix and match. Whatever you feel comfortable doing is what you should choose.

Your eating habits sound great! It's also wonderful that you are catering to your mental and physical needs. These are also important in your overall health. I hope you get a good routine going and make some progress!


Anna, **God Strengthens Me**

I will be able to do the beginner walk on a tread mill, but not at 3 mi/hr, I am only at 2.3 mi/hr. I will be able to the mechanical bike , and I always do the "Health" part. emoticon

Blessings for the journey!

Ok, I have some questions!

1. How do I see the Weeks 1-3 challenges?
2. I walk my boyfriend's dog for anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half 4-5 times per week, so what level should I do for the challenge?


I don't go to the gym in the spring and summer, only when it's raining or winter weather.

I have been trying to add more vegetables/fruits to my diet, and I eat lean meats like fish, chicken, and turkey, I haven't had red meat in about a month, I think, maybe not that long, but I can't remember the last time I ate it.

For my mental health, since I already do a lot of walking outside, I want to make calling my sponsor every day and journaling or blogging on SparkPeople a goal and reading and posting one motivational quote per day.

"It's ridiculous to harshly condemn others and to stand over them as if your life is perfect. God is the only judge with clean hands. The rest of us are dirty people, pointing each other to the shower." - Trip Lee

“What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?” - Michael Hyatt

I haven't been able to participate in all the other weeks' challenges due to health reasons, but I worked out today and feel ready for the week 4 challenge! Think I'll stick to the beginner challenge, though, to keep it healthy AND safe. ;)

Day 22. Going to try to add meditation to my routine this week to, maybe, help lower my blood sugars. Also, I need to think leaner -- I always go over my fats on the tracker. 8-)
