    CONGRATULATIONS on your third week, Casual Traveler!

    We're 3 weeks into our journey and we made it to Maui USA , logging 9.185 exercise miles, 1,720 points for Team calcium Monitoring as well as 1,700 points for Nutrition Tracking. Although not everyone posted their weigh in for last week, it looks like there were more losses than gains and a few folks who maintained their weights from last week. We also have one person who reached their 5% goal this week!! Congratulations and keep it up!!

    During this week, if you achieved the results you wanted, or surprised yourself with better than expected results, congratulations!! Well done!!

    If you feel your results were not what you wanted to see... (I would count myself in this sentiment) then time for the decision to make this a better week! Tracking is a great way to see exactly what we eat and exercising is also a great way to move things along (Yes, bad pun intended).

    Regardless, 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've accomplished!!

    Let's get excited about this, the 4th week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward Phuket, Thailand which is 7,004 Miles exercise miles away. This isn't our closest destination but it isn't our furthest so far, and if we put our minds to it, we very well could land earlier this week than last.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is "Get to Bed On Time" and we are again logging MONITOR CALCIUM! from last week's LGTL.

    Again, please remember that while water tracking and Nutrition Tracking have dropped from the challenge numbers, make sure to keep hydrating and tracking because those two things are very helpful and very important, particularly when traveling during a 5% challenge when it comes to success.

    So how do you get points when it comes to "Get to Bed On Time"? This means, for the challenge: "To score 10 points set a reasonable bedtime and get into bed by YOUR pre-determined bedtime. If you are in bed by YOUR bedtime score 10 points. If you dawdle and distract yourself and do not get to bed on time, score 0 points. This is an all or nothing challenge with a MAXIMUM of 10 points daily.

    For example, My work day is ever changing and my goal this week will be the same for each day: Into bed within 1 hour of arriving home WITHOUT the TV on in the background. I'm keeping mine this loose/strict because that's where my challenge occurs nearly every, darned night. On the days I'm successful, I will post 10 points and on those I 'm not; I'll post 0.

    This week again is Monitor Calcium. You will report 10 points for the day for knowing how much calcium you had for that day, whether you met your goal or not BUT if you do not keep track of the calcium, you will report 0. This means a Daily MAXIMUM of 10 points. If you don't MEASURE EVERYTHING for a particular meal, that meal would be 0 points.

    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, February 7th for them to count toward this week's challenge.

    Please also remember to post your Week 4 weight by 11:59PM Saturday February 8th.

    Have fun and enjoy this leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing range of play along at your leasure game categories!

    Every Saturday we offer an optional Wellness Challenge 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 look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie

    27 of us were under, 6 of us were over and 7 of us were the same as our last week's posted weights.

    Again, you should be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, regardless of your results. Very Well done!!!

    So now, let's get excited about this, the 3rd week of our journey!! The plane is currently
    heading toward Maui USA which is our furthest distance so far at 8,186 Mi exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Monitoring Calcium and we are again logging Nutrition tracking from last week's LGTL. While water tracking has dropped from the challenge, please make sure to keep hydrating because it's very important, particularly when traveling

    So what do we mean by and how do you get points when it comes to Monitoring Calcium? For a detailed description of how to monitor, please read the first post at the bottom of this week's Weekly Itinerary page.

    In fact, please make sure to read the first post every week because that's where you find the detailed descriptions for living the good life challenge (LTGL) as well as the wording you'll need to use when reporting your daily results. Please make sure to use those when posting.

    So... for this challenge: You can track your calcium by whatever method you choose - Weight Watchers Points Plus (tally calcium manually), Spark Nutrition Tracker, pen and paper - calculate, etc. There are step by step instructions in the itinerary for adding to your Sparkpeople tracker. You will report 10 points for the day for knowing how much calcium you had for the day whether you met your calcium goal or not BUT if you do not keep track of your calcium, you will report 0 points for that day.

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

    Nutrition Tracking is 10 points if you track ALL your meals/snacks food for the day; if you don't track 100 %; please do not log any points. This is an all or nothing record.

    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 note, though that reporting during weekly challenges is not optional; if you have an issue, please contact one of the leaders) so please make sure to log all of your exercise miles, Monitor calcium and Nutrition Tracking points before 11:59PM Friday, January 31st.

    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.
