    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

    CONGRATULATIONS on your SEVENTH week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Oslo Norway, logged 7,348 exercise miles, 1,260 points for My Clean Kitchen and another 1,200 points for “My New Habit”.

    While there were a couple of gains (ME) and some who stayed the same as the previous week, we also had some nice losses for the week!

    Several folks are very close to and some have already met their 5% challenge goal!! Congratulations!!

    Can you believe we are well on our way to completing this, the final leg and the final week of this, our Fall 5% challenge??!! It seems like we just started!!! Well done!! I hope you’re very proud of being here and of how you got here!!

    You stuck to it!! You completed 7 weeks of travels and new adventures, new habits, eating off 9 inch plates, losing some clutter and so on!

    I hope you’re excited about the 8th week of our journey!

    The plane is currently in the air and a little under half way to our destination of NewYork City in the USA which is 3,685 exercise miles away. This may be our shortest trip; maybe we can land the soonest we have yet?!

    Please keep moving as best and as often as you can; let’s finish this with as many or more miles than ever before!!

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is: Making it Through the Holidays and we are again logging points for a new healthy habit from last week's LGTL.

    So how do you count points for the is Making it Through the Holidays challenge? (Please make sure to read the challenge 8 guidelines for the exact description and information regarding what this challenge exactly entails).

    This means, for the new LTGL challenge there are 2 steps: 5 points for daily exercise and 5 points for daily nutrition tracking combined in one score.

    Step 1. We are tracking all of our food; meals, snacks, etc. for each day. If you track ALL your food for the day, you will score 5 points. If you do not, you will score 0 points.

    Step 2. This is separate from exercise miles - In addition to reporting exercise as exercise miles, we are tracking whether or not we have done at least 10 minutes of exercise daily. If you do at least 10 minutes of exercise in a day, you will score 5 points. If you do not, you will score 0 points.

    You may find you do one but not the other in a day; score 5 for the one you did and 0 for the one you didn’t.

    Both can be scored in one line like this under MY Nutrition Tracking and Daily Exercise: 5+5 =10.

    Then in the Team Nutrition Tracking and Daily Exercise line, count the above as 10.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 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.
    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 and we are one of 10 teams trying to land first!! Also...bonus points are awarded to the teams that reach our destination in first, second and third places.

    Also keep in mind that you are required to actively post your LGTL points weekly. At the latest any/all Week 7 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, November 29th.

    Weekly weigh ins are required to be posted before 11:59PM (in your time zone) on Saturday, November 30th.

    Have fun and enjoy this, the last and 8th of your journey!! Remember, for your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is Desserts, YUM!!

    Also, 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!!! Enjoy!!
