As a part of the "Living the good life" challenge for the 8th week of the 5% Spring Challenge Team, we are granted 5 points for a blog entry. To help my team I have tried to post a blog daily, and today is the last day. Most blogs I have posted are a result of some team challenge, I am not readily eager to post to the public. SO SP has a tool for motivation in the challenge Teams. If I am able to overcome my privacy for 5 points, why can't I dedicate to 1700 calories a day? Many blogs talk of streaks of under 1700 calories a day, or even 1500, and I love 2000+ or-, Guess I need to look at the weight loss success of teammates and follow their lead.

For years I have been tracking my food and getting the total calories, carbs, fats, etc. After the new change on the tracking page, need I say I don't like change, I discovered the total report which gives the breakdown by each tracked item. I have been wanting to do this for years and it has been there all the time! Oh well, maybe I should stop fussing about Windows 8 and just learn how to use it.

We are all familiar with the statement starting," the bottom line is......". It is used in business all the time and in government too. Well, what is the bottom line in getting healthier and in my case lighter? SP has us track food and exercise in a very convenient format, even by our phones. SP provides articles on all aspects of a healthier lifestyle, free. We have teams where we share hopes, success, doubts and disappointment and share encouragement. We are urged to get exercise partners to keep motivated. We have challenge teams that make us look to being a helper for the team so we are successful in the overall challenge. How can we avoid leading a healthier life and getting more fit and in the great BMI zone? To me, I am the bottom line for leading a healthier life and getting in good shape and in a healthier BMI zone. If I don't use these tools, I don't make anything new. If I don't motivate myself, emails, articles, Goodies and teams are like tv shows I don't watch, no impact in my life. Good teams kill the pity party, tell you to get up and do what you know to do and give you new ideas on how to reach your goals but I have to put this into action. So THANKS to all my teammates that have kept me wobbling in the healthy direction and I promise to give my best effort to bring success to my teams as I approach a healthier life.

Songs are written about all types of situations, conditions and beliefs. If we hear a catchy song we tend to "get it in our mind" and hum, whistle or sing it repetitiously. As for exercise, some days my body and spirit conspire against my health's best interest. Posting daily on Team threads and tracking my exercise is my version of the catchy tune. Thanks to SP and the Sparkers that make it worth the time it takes to post.
