July 24: Small Goals Commitment Challenge -- Friendly Competition Part 2

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, July 24, 2017

Happy Monday!

Highlights include:

* Yesterday was day 162 of my 10+ fitness minutes streak
* Today is day 102 of 106 (96%) blogging for this challenge (details below)

Woohoo -- feeling a lot better today.

Here's an update on my fitness streak within a streak (doing at least 20 minutes of bike/exercise bike for 75 of 100 days): After doing all of the first 20 days, I missed 3 days in a row -- 2 from being busy with other fun adventures and one from a small bug. But I jumped back on today so am at 21/24 days or 87.5% -- above the 75% target by a good amount. This is a pretty tough challenge tough. It will be interesting to see how this goes.

I published Part 2 of my story about the friendly competition between the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Here is Part 1 if you missed it:

And here is Part 2:

Friendly competition will play a big part in the SparkEarth/SparkAmerica plan I started sharing :).

Do you like either the Beatles or the Beach Boys? I loved seeing the incredible musical results of this friendly and respectful competition!

I hope you had a good Monday!

Here is the button to press. Each time you press the button, the number of total presses will increase by one as a way to show that we're all part of something bigger -- a community of people reaching goals together!

In addition to pressing the button, if you like posting comments, feel free to make a comment in each blog. I love seeing all the comments on the first blog with people saying "I commit to.......". Also feel free to post/track any of those goals to the community goals feed if you'd like.

Come back and push the button as many times during the day as you'd like to re-affirm your commitment -- like if you are wavering on making a healthy vs. unhealthy choice or just need a little extra push. All you need to do is refresh the page and the button will also refresh. Remember to subscribe to my blog if you would like to get an email alert right when I publish.

The button will remain on my blogs for now, but we might move it to a more prominent location at some point.

I am committed to a couple of goal right now:
1) Getting this challenge launched. I think this could be a lot of fun and a big way to help people, so I will work on this almost every day at least some.
2) I'm working to build the fitness level for my kids in various ways that I'll share more about on future blogs.
3) A commitment to keep my 10+ fitness minutes streak going.



SparkCheers and thanks for your support!
