Accept what is; release what was; have faith in what will be.
Take chances! Be bold, be silly, be weird!

I'm still here.
2020 is my year to release this fat!!
I am just so sick of myself and the same ol’ excuses every year, same ol fat me every year. Full Stop. Deep Breath. Release.

My word of the year: Release.

I feel like a misplaced islander.
I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in a past life.

Make time for your wellness or you will be forced to make time for your illness.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou

“I am a question to the world, not an answer to be heard or a moment that's held in your arms. And what do you think you'd ever say? I won't listen anyway. You don't know me. And I'll never be what you want me to be.”~ John Rzeznik ~ I'm Still Here ~ Treasure Planet

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ~Dr. Seuss

I’ve been on SP for a long time. I’ve lost and gained back a lot of weight over these years. Up, down, up, down, up.... This year I’m determined to lose the weight again and get off this stupid roller coaster.

    CONGRATULATIONS on your First week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Tahiti which was 6.277 miles away by logging 9,479 exercise miles and ,202
    points for water.

    As a team, we saw 32 losses during this first week! Whether you lost, gained or stayed the
    same, be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, well done!!!

    Now that we know how to read and report the coming challenges, let's get excited about this, the 2nd week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which is 6,728 exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Nutrition Tracking and we are again
    logging water from last week's LGTL.

    Please make sure to track how many 8 ounce glasses of water you drink per day; count 1
    point for each full cup you drink. The goal (and maximum) per day is 8.

    So what exactly do you get points for when it comes to Nutrition Tracking?

    This means that for this LTGL challenge you need to TRACK EVERYTHING YOU EAT during the day! If you track all your meals/food you eat in a day you earn and report 10 points for that day. If you do not track EVERYTHING, then no points are earned and 0 is reported for that day. This is what we call an "All or Nothing" challenge.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is equal to 1 mile.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to
    participate to the best of their abilities, so please make sure to log all of your water,
    nutrition tracking & exercise mile points as often as you are able to!! Remember, we are
    competing with other teams for destination landing placement. please also keep in mind that all logging needs to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, January 24th.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we have quite a few options!
    Family fued, Songs from the year you were born, a what's in your fridge run of the Alphabet
    game and a couple of others are currently being offered.

    Every Saturday. This challenge, the optional Wellness challenge is "Self Care Saturday" which will 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 look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie
