    emoticon saw your post about your grand daughter still using her training wheels...take the training wheels off then also take the pedals off until she figures out how to balance the bike, it will happen so much faster...try it, you won't be disappointed, it works. Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    CONGRATULATIONS on your First week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Tahiti which was 6.277 miles away by logging 9,479 exercise miles and ,202
    points for water.

    As a team, we saw 32 losses during this first week! Whether you lost, gained or stayed the
    same, be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, well done!!!

    Now that we know how to read and report the coming challenges, let's get excited about this, the 2nd week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which is 6,728 exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Nutrition Tracking and we are again
    logging water from last week's LGTL.

    Please make sure to track how many 8 ounce glasses of water you drink per day; count 1
    point for each full cup you drink. The goal (and maximum) per day is 8.

    So what exactly do you get points for when it comes to Nutrition Tracking?

    This means that for this LTGL challenge you need to TRACK EVERYTHING YOU EAT during the day! If you track all your meals/food you eat in a day you earn and report 10 points for that day. If you do not track EVERYTHING, then no points are earned and 0 is reported for that day. This is what we call an "All or Nothing" challenge.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is equal to 1 mile.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to
    participate to the best of their abilities, so please make sure to log all of your water,
    nutrition tracking & exercise mile points as often as you are able to!! Remember, we are
    competing with other teams for destination landing placement. please also keep in mind that all logging needs to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, January 24th.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we have quite a few options!
    Family fued, Songs from the year you were born, a what's in your fridge run of the Alphabet
    game and a couple of others are currently being offered.

    Every Saturday. This challenge, the optional Wellness challenge is "Self Care Saturday" which will focus on mind, body and soul.

    Please have a great week, have fun with the challenge and make sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs. Please also look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie

    Yes I remember. Exercising and biking. I started having neurological problems, it got so bad my knees were just giving out and I was falling. I hate doctors but my husband made me go. He called an orthopedic doctor who order an MRI that same day. Turns out my spinal cord was almost completely cut off. I had lost feeling in my arms and hands and chronic neck pain so bad I couldn't sleep. He said I needed a spinal fusion. I asked what would happen if I didn't have the surgery. He said I'd be in a wheelchair. Scheduled surgery the next week. After 2 months recovery I still had numbness and pain in my arms and hands so he sent me to a neurologist who did tests and found out I had cubital tunnel in both elbows and carpal tunnel in both wrists. I work in operations and type most of the day, so I still couldn't work. He scheduled surgery on 1 elbow and wrist then did the other side 2 months later. I was out of work for 6 months and got so depressed. I was even suicidal. My grand daughter was 6 months old and I couldn't pick her up until she was about 9 months old. A year later I was finally healed and didn't know how to act because I didn't have ANY pain. I had been in pain for about 5 years. Now I'm ready to live my life to the fullest again and I'm so happy!

    Hi, if you are looking for a challenge group to help you lose weight, the Biggest Loser Challenge group is starting a new challenge (Jan 1st, first WI is Jan 8th) with registration happening right now.
    I am a captain of the Resolute Renegades that focuses on finding what helps you lose weight (there are basics, but we are all a bit different), and accountability (encouraging you to get your weight loss tasks done). We don't spend a lot of time online instead focusing on our weight loss tasks in real life.
    If this team doesn't feel like a fit for you, there are all kinds of teams that focus on support or pushing exercise minute or nutrition or other topics, so you can find a team that fits for you.
    Ask if you have any questions.
    Or go check out the group and register at: https://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_m
