July 26: Small Goals Commitment Challenge -- Sad Day at Home

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Happy Wednesday!

Highlights include:

* Yesterday was day 164 of my 10+ fitness minutes streak
* Today is day 104 of 108 (96%) blogging for this challenge (details below)

Today is a bad day at home. My oldest (almost 14) broke his leg (tibia) in 2 places today at skateboarding camp. He is super-careful and this is his first-ever real injury. He just caught something wrong.

We have to take him to the doc tomorrow for a cast and cross our fingers that he doesn't need surgery as part of fixing it. All forms of positive thoughts welcome :). So hard to see the little ones in so much pain. At least he's resting on the couch now.

I'm happy we did a bunch of outdoor adventures last weekend with amusement park, hiking, and more before this happened.

Today's exercise bike will be good stress management. Off to do that now.

Hope it's a better day for everyone else out there in SparkLand! Did you reach any interesting goals today?

Here is the link to the team if you haven't joined yet (we're over 1,200 members!):

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!

Below is overview information for the challenge:

If you haven't seen this yet, here is the original announcement for this challenge:

And here is the link to the SparkPeople Fuel for Improvement System Overview that lists all of the current lessons and activities:

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!
