One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,

And...one choice can change your life.

Glad to hear you gave up all those things Joycee23!!! that is GREAT news!!! Congrats!!!!

I am feeling better, now just nerves as I have the dentist appointment this morning :(
We are 13.5 hours ahead of US Eastern Time. Winters here are cold but not as cold as any I experienced in the US, even South Carolina Winters are colder. Most people in South Australia have never seen snow unless they have traveled. One of the Mt. Peaks here got snow a few weeks ago and that is the first time in many years. Our Summers are comparible to Southern Summers in the south, not quite as humid but we hit 100 often.
As for an accent :) No, I am picking up on a lot of the words etc but I don't think I will ever get the accent..Aussie accents are hard to pick up from what I understand and I am too old HA!!!

Goals have been met so far this week!
I added swimming into my workout schedule (well for at least the next 4 weeks as that is all my membership is for-by then it will be Spring here though and I can hopefully get in the Ocean!)

Ok Team, I would love it if you kept up with the July Challenge and added an extra 10 minutes again on top of what you are already doing, it doesn't have to be rebounding, it can be 10 minutes of any type of exercise, including stretching/yoga which I feel is a MUST anyhow!!!

Also keep within your calorie range each day (and keep in mind if you don't feel what SP has offered you as a caloric range depending on your physical activity etc you can change it) It is proven that tracking what you eat helps you lose weight or maintain so tracking is vital!

The "new" part of this challenge is something I picked up from a page I follow on Facebook:
It is a 21 day challenge, you can pick to start at any time over the next week as long as you take this on for 21 consecutive days..then it could become a lifetime change:

21 Days of:
NO chips
NO sodas (including diet)
NO chocolate
NO Candy
NO White Breads
NO cookies
NO Cakes, desserts etc
NO Fast Food

I challenge you to pick at least 3 of these items to cut from your diet!
