Default *~*~*~ Spring Fling Challenge ~*~*~*

Welcome, chickies, to the second challenge for 2004.

We're closer to spring, and to warmer weather, it's time to make sure that we are ready for more outdoor activity in the next few months.

This challenge starts now, and ends on March 31, 2004, just in time for the crocuses to start peeking through the snow. We will be in better shape to start enjoying the season.

Whatver your program, whatever your fitness level, you can participate.
Post your goal for the next 6 weeks, and join us for support and encouragement.

This Challenge thread is being set up as a place, other than the journal, where we can all come to share our progress, our struggles, our triumphs, and to cheer on those who are committed to a healthier lifestyle, and to just talk!

Let the challenge begin!

All right...the thread is up...now for the goals

Spring Fling Goals:
* drink 64oz of water every day, before leaving work
* walk 1 mile (either WATP, or outdoors, or pedometer) each work day

Bonus Goal
* walk 2 miles each weekend (either WATP, or outdoors, or pedometer)

Continue to follow my Zone plan, and add additional workouts with the Shortcuts tapes to speed up my loss. I'll have my new measurements on 2/29 to know for sure what my additional progress has been.

* Drink 80 oz of water a day

Default Count me in too, Chicks

I'm SOOOOOO ready to lose these Winter blues and step into SPRING with a new outlook. My goals are to drink AT LEAST 72 ounces of water a day, stay on my Weight Watchers at home program and exercise 3-4 times a week (30 minutes each time). I'd like to personally thank Jennifer for all her encouragement, motivation, and patience during my whining and wailing. And I'd like to also thank her for all her work on, and FOR starting up this challenge. Looks great, doesn't it? Hope to see you all soon. Mary in WV

Lilith & Mary! Yaaay!

Okay, now that I've gotten everything taken care of...at least I think, I am off to go clean up, maybe even take a bubble bath & enjoy what's left of my day off.

Thanks, chickies, for embracing this challenge. I'll catch you all later on!

(Now I have to think about a darned signature line, too???? sheesh!)

Hello All
Jennifer, Thank you for starting this I was looking for a spring challenge and by the time this is complete winter will be gone!

Goals:
Drink 64oz water daily
Stay for the WW meetings
Cardio- 60 mins at 80% capacity 4x/week
Finally figure out how the strength training/resistance machines at the gym work- although I have belonged to a gym for 5 years, I have yet to venture to that side!
Lose 15 pounds.
Thanks
Jen

Default Healthy Evermore in 2004

Hey Jennifer, I am with ya too. Okay, for my goals:

Exercise every morning before work (5 times a week) and a 20 minute walk at lunch time every day at work. At least one day on Sat or Sun I have to take a walk downtown or go to the park or the zoo to walk.

Keep writing down all my meals

Try not to have very many splurge days.

Plan what I am going to have during the next day before I go to bed.

Keep my apartment nice and clean (I feel the more organized I am at home, everything else seems to be a little easier).

I will try to join or audition for more things so I can stay busy

Default NOW I can post--Geesh!

Maybe I'm just a little out of touch with this technology thing, but I thought I could do this. Goals will be posted tonight! Thanks for the invite and all the links. I need you to tell me what to do with the really cute Spring Fling icons because I want to use them! Oh wait, I think I figured it out...I just have to download them and then attach them, right? OK...what about using them with my name, like everyone else is doing? Oh boy...

Goals...gotta go take a nap then think about them and put them down on paper! Gotta get focused. Gotta get to the store. Gotta stop eating like I did in Chicago (had lots of exercise, though!)

I feel motivated and psyched about this group. Thanks so much for setting it all up Jennifer!

Default Welcome everyone!

Hey there, Jen, June & Julie! Welcome! (That was a mouthful!) Glad to see some new faces here with our challenge group from the Journal for Valentine's day.

Julie, you're lucky I checked your profile & recognized you. I'm brand new to the forums, so I'm learning just as much. As far as the icons, save the ones I emailed you to your computer, and then go to User CP- pick "avatar" and then upload one of them from your computer...voila...yeah, I know, sounds easier than it is. I still have to play with all the settings there to figure out how everything works. LOL
