Here's the blog that started this idea. Thanks for the initial 20 something responders for it's conception.

It's quite simple really. First, U challenge a spark buddy to hold each other accountable to one another's eating and exercising habits for 5 days. Take a few days off. Then U challenge someone else to do the same. That's it.

Why this works:
1) It is simple. I'm notorious for complicating things. Ask my wife. Ask my colleagues. I have to remind myself, or someone else will, to KISS--Keep It Simple, Stupid. Okay, I usually don't call myself stupid, my last name also works well here as it also starts with an "S." (Insert your own joke here!) The fact is....simple is best because simple is....

2) It is sustainable. Let's face it. We are busy. We are committed to multiple things at a time....the simple time line makes it sustainable. We can do anything for 5 days.
Our lives require breaks and breathers. This plan provides breaks and breathers while holding ourselves to our plan. The most important reason that this works is because...

3) U work. It's all about U. Isn't it? If the U that is I says, "No," then I am fooling myself. I want to look better. I want to feel better. I want to get tired less. I want to do more. I want to live longer. So, I take a step in the right direction because this is what I want to do. I choose the person. I choose to report. I choose to stick with the plan. I choose to move on. I choose to make a difference in my life and the life of another. It is not about someone else holding me accountable, it is truthfully, about me holding me accountable. I want to hold me accountable? Don't U? :0

Do the U-Challenge. I Challenge U.

Please post how this has helped you in the Testimonials.....I'd love to know....because your success fuels mine! And even though my success is up to me....your success encourages me to write and encourage you which sparks me to....well....I think you get the picture! A Toast: To the Journey!

Your BigBrother323.
