Sunday, August 06, 2017

Hi SparkFriends!

Highlights include:
* Yesterday was day 175 of my 10+ fitness minutes streak
* Today is day 112 of 119 (94%) blogging for this challenge (details below)

Quick check-in tonight:

First, Linda and Homer HIckam are blown away by your response -- thanks so much for all of your comments! They got in touch with me today saying they are showing the announcement and member comments to a bunch of their friends.

The more comments the merrier if you'd like to add to the welcome parade:

Today I spent some time working on our SparkPittsburgh project. I'm getting ready to send an email to many thousands of SparkPeople members in the area to see if they'd like to participate.

Tomorrow we have a call with a major nonprofit there about doing a project together with a kids program they run with many local partners.

My fitness highlight this weekend was playing wiffleball with my youngest. He had some great home runs :).

How was your weekend?

Thanks again for your support!

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!
