Every once in awile I post the challenge that I create for the walk/run virtual team that I lead with Monty and Debbie. If you don't have a team that you enjoy and are actively participating in, I invite you to check us out www.sparkpeople.com/mysp
One step at a time we journey on and let me tell you those steps add up, just ask Monty - a leader, friend, and fellow team-mate on the team, he has just walked a total of 5,000 miles and still going. Here is a link to his blog about this so you to may be inspired on. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
My other awesome friend, leader, and inspiration on the team Debbie has started reviving the 10 minute streak thread. 10 minutes a day - you can do it while inspiring others on.
Commercial over, Challenge on
I can remember preparing last years challenge for the upcoming Memorial Day and urging us all to kick off for what is for many of us the official start of summer - A good time for new beginnings and to refresh our journeys towards healthier lifestyles.
How will you start off the official first summer holiday? Personally, I am a firm believer in being prepared both physically and mentally. This is why I love Spark so much, it allows me to develop goals - both long term and short term that build the consistency and balance I so crave in my life to keep making progress.
What about you? It is almost time to think about setting goals for June, why not start now while planning for a fit Memorial Day week-end? Choosing your path to a healthy lifestyle is important every day, won't you join me and your team in having the healthiest Memorial Day yet.
Some ways to be ready for this week-ends BBQ:
Cut down a little on what you eat every day before the cookout so you can eat more that day?
Control your portions so you don't eat more than you should at the barbeque?
Increase your exercise a little every day before and after to compensate for what you may eat?
Or just take the day, relax, and trust that you've learned a better lifestyle over these weeks and months so you'll adapt to whatever food and drinks are available?
What will your strategy be and what are your Memorial Day plans?
Your choice in handling this Memorial Day celebration is all yours as you celebrate every day of your life with delicious healthy food and positive exercise that feeds your body and mind to prosperity. Your choices are yours alone. Choose to celebrate a health lifestyle and those around you will come together. The gift of a beautiful healthy body from the inside out is the greatest gift of all. Celebrate life this Memorial Day -- you deserve it!
