    CONGRATULATIONS on your FOURTH WEEK, Casual Traveler!

    Can you believe WE ARE HALF-WEIGH THERE!!!

    We're 4 weeks into our journey and we made it to Regina Canada, logging a total of 7,379 exercise miles, 1,030 points for Team Portion control and measuring as well as 1,025 points for No random eating (NRE) and once again, we've had a nice overall loss this week!

    Pat yourself on the back if during week 4, you accomplished the goals you set for yourself, whether or not the results were what you expected; 1. you set goals and 2. You stuck with them! Congratulations!! Well done!!

    If you feel you could have moved more, eaten less or done anything else differently during this week or the last 4 weeks, then shake it off and start afresh!! Have a positive conversation with yourself about this week; Make a list of what's working and what's not; find new things to take the place of those that aren't. Sometimes making a list of everything provides an "AHA!" moment and that's all we need to tweak an otherwise perfect agenda. Promise yourself you're going to be your best yet and treat yourself kindly!

    Regardless, as I said last week; You should be proud of yourself for sticking with it, and pat yourself on the back for that very reason!! Very Well done!!! Be very proud of what you have accomplished!!

    Let's get very excited about this, the 2nd half of our journey!!

    During week 5, our plane is in the air and headed toward Cairo, Egypt an exciting destination, 6,269 miles away. This is not our longest flight, but also not the shortest.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is "the 9inch plate" and we are again logging No Random Eating (NRE) from last week's LGTL.

    Continue to hydrate and track even though we aren't logging points for them; these 2 things are very helpful and very important, particularly when traveling during a 5% challenge when it comes to success.

    So how do you count points for the 9 inch plate challenge?

    The 9 inch plate challenge is another all or nothing challenge. You will report 10 points for each day that you use a 9 inch plate for ALL your meals during that day. The only exceptions would be if you're eating "bowl" foods like soup, salad or cereal.

    I had never heard of this until last year's fall challenge and am very happy it was a part of it. since that time I actually DO use a 7 or 9 inch plate for every meal I eat that needs a plate. If you check out any of my food posts, you'll see it's true. Small plates work!

    This week again is No Random Eating(NRE): You decide what event, common activity, place, time, etc. where you will not eat each day. It can be a different activity, function or event each day if you like. If you successfully resist eating in the situation you chose, then count 10 points for the day; if you don't, then you would count 0 points for the day.
    This is also an all or nothing challenge.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile and exercise should be reported after completion.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to participate to the best of their abilities. Please make sure to log all of your LTGL points &
    exercise miles for the day as often as possible; the sooner our points are posted, the sooner we land our plane.

    We, the casual Travelers, are one of more than 10 teams trying to reach our destination before anyone else. Also keep in mind that at the latest any/all Week 4 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, November 8th.

    Have fun and enjoy this leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is Disney Characters!

    Every Wednesday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge will be offered that will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    Please have a great week, have fun with the challenge and make sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs.

    Please also check YOUR Spark Page and look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Have an incredibly wonderful week!!!
