    CONGRATULATIONS on your SIXTH week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Xi'an China, logged 7,220 exercise miles, 1,310 points for My Clean Kitchen and another 1,340 points for the 9 inch plate. We had a very nice overall loss for the week!

    Be very proud of yourselves for sticking with it, and again, for those of who who are thinking your results were not what you wanted to see... You still stuck to it!! You're still here and you're still traveling!! Very Well done!!!

    Let's get super stoked about this, the 7th week of our journey!! The plane is currently in the air and a little over half way to our destination in Oslo Norway, which is a total of 4,477 exercise miles away. This is our 2nd SHORTEST jaunt, but that doesn't mean we should put in fewer exercize miles, does it? Nope, not at all!!

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is A new daily Habit and we are again logging points for My clean Kitchen from last week's LGTL.

    And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, remember, too, that hydrating and tracking are important tools for success with travels of this nature.

    So how do you count points for the Healthy New Habit challenge?

    This week start a new healthy habit that will improve your life, health, motivate you (see the week 7 challenge page for the full desription). When you log, let your team know what habit you are tracking and give yourself 10 points for each day you faithfully follow YOUR new habit. If you miss a day, no points for the day - this is another all or nothing challenge.

    You will also report 10 points for each day that you do ten or more minutes of Kitchen Clean-Up; on the days with less than or no Kitchen clean up you will score "0" points.

    As always, exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile and should be reported after completion.

    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 22nd.

    Weekly weigh ins are required to be posted before 11:59PM (in your time zone) on Saturday, November 23rd.

    Have fun and enjoy this, the next to last and 7th of your journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is Thanksgiving!!

    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!!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your FIFTH WEEK, Casual Traveler!

    Can you believe WE ARE MORE THAN HALF-WEIGH THERE!!!

    We're 5 weeks into our journey and we made it to Cairo Egypt, logging a total of 8,236 exercise miles, 1,370 points for the 9 inch plate and 1,230 points for No random eating (NRE)! Well done!!

    In addition, we've had a another nice overall loss for the week!

    Pat yourself on the back if during week 5, you succeeded in the plan you made for your week. Congratulations!! Well done!!

    Today is another chance to evaluate what is and isn't working for you and shake it up a little to see what you can change or adapt for week 6. Try something new!

    As we head into "hunker down and settle in" season, many of us are going to be looking toward nice, warm and simple comfort foods to take the chill off. A beautiful bowl of soup or a well balanced casserole can be nutritious and delicious and they don't necessarily need to knock us off track. Check out the SparkRecipes to see what might appeal to you!! You might be very surprised by the selections you will find there!!!

    It's also a good time to move a little more since days are getting shorter, nights are falling earlier and the holidays are right around the corner. All of these things can sometimes put movement on the back burner. Look for an alternate plan like dancing or working with bands, watching an exercise video, etc., to help with the change in seasons. Find new ways to get your exercise in; be creative but be safe!

    Again... Be proud of yourself for sticking with it, pat yourself on the back for that very reason!! Great job!!

    Time to get very excited about this, the 6th leg of our journey!! We are in the air and on our way to Xi'an China, one of the oldest cities!! Right now the days are around 60 degrees F, with nights in the 30s and 40s.

    This exciting destination is 6,250 miles away and it is one of our longer, but not longest, flights.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is "Kitchen Clean-Up" (I LOVE THIS ONE, too!!) and we are again logging points for the 9 inch plate from last week's LGTL.

    Remember, too, that hydrating and tracking are important tools for success with travels
    of this nature.

    So how do you count points for the Kitchen Clean-Up challenge?

    This week you will spend a MINIMUM of 10 minutes a day on Kitchen Clean-Up to declutter, clean, and organize this important workspace. You will score 10 points for each day you do Kitchen Clean-Up - this is another all or nothing challenge.

    You will also report 10 points for each day that you use a 9 inch plate for ALL your meals during that day; the only exceptions are if you're eating "bowl" foods like soup, salad or cereal. If you don't use a 9 inch plate for all your meals, you would score "0" points.

    Exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile and should
    be reported after completion.

    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 at the latest any/all Week 6 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, November 15th.

    Have fun and enjoy this week 6 of your journey!! For your In flight Entertainment,
    we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the
    category is TV Shows!!

    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.

    members and special days.

    Have an incredibly wonderful week!!! Enjoy!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you got your Christmas gifts bought and wrapped early. So much easier than fighting crowds later on.

    Back in the day, I used to start my shopping on the boxing day sales. Then put everything in a box marked "gifts for Christmas yet to come" lol Then if anything came on sale throughout the year, into the box it would go..... Of course there was always last minute stuff, but it sure took the pressure off.

    Have a great day!
