    CONGRATULATIONS on your second week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Rio de Janeiro Brazil! We logged 9,759 exercise miles, 1,858 points for Nutrition Tracking and 1,690 points for water.

    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.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing 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

    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
