I am on an eternal road these days. What do I mean by that? I believe in Heaven and Hell. Many people do not or they do and really do not care. I do believe in it and I am a born again Christian. That means I asked Jesus to come into my life and heart when I was 15 years old. I asked him to forgive me of my sins and help to live a better life. I am living for eternity now. That means I make eternal things matter the most these days. Does it matter that I have toys all over my house on any given day and it drives me a little crazy sometimes? No! What does matter is that I have two precious children whom I love and would die for at any given time. It is important to me that they know the JESUS that I know. I have a husband of 20 years whom I adore and love to eternity. He is my soul mate and God brought us together no doubt. That is who I am - all about JESUS and them. That is why I do the things I do and say the things I say. My blog is very spiritual at times. If that is not for you, you many want to skip it but I do hope you will read it from time to time. It might just give you some food for thought now and then! Blessings to you and yours!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your SEVENTH WEEK, Casual Traveler!

    We've now put 7 weeks behind us in our journey and we made it to Madagascar, logging a
    total of 7,620 exercise miles, 1,310 points for Team No Evening Eating as well as 1,180 points for Team Cut Calories. Thank you for posting all your ITINERARY updates before the deadline!

    3 folks missed the weigh in deadline, 1 person was excused, 7 people stayed the same AND We logged 14 losses!! WEIGH TO GO!!!

    Well done! We've had a nice challenge, overall! Be proud of yourself for making it this far!!
    Also for sticking with it and what you have accomplished, regardless of your results!! You're here on the last day before the final weigh in and you're still active on all levels!

    I hope you were all very excited about this, the eighth week of our journey!!

    During week 8, our plane is still in the air and headed toward Sicily, 4,439 miles away and we've about 1,050 1,050 miles to go before we land. This is our last and shortest flight for this challenge.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) was blogging because it can have positive effects on weight loss journeys. It can tell your story, help you work through tough spots,
    and let you toot your own horn! You can share what works for you and what doesn't. so many things to be shared, to be said!! For tis LGTL, you've been logging 10 points per day if you blog and 0 if you do not because this is
    another all or nothing challenge.

    This week again was no evening eating: 10 points if you were successful; 0 points if not. This is also an all or nothing challenge.

    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 8 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, March 6th.

    I hope you had fun and enjoy this final leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the several games. Please make sure to check the In flight Fun area!!

    Every Saturday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge for self care Saturday will be offered that will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    I also hope you had a great week, had fun with the challenge and made sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs.

    Have an incredibly wonderful Friday!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your SIXTH WEEK, Casual Traveler!

    We're now 6 weeks into our journey and we made it to Falkland Isles, logging a total of
    6,723 exercise miles, 1,070 points for Team Cut Calories as well as 1,530 points for Team happiness. This week, there were no itinerary posts after the deadline and only one person missed the weigh in! We saw 16 losses, 7 gains (myself included) 4 weights that
    were the same as last week and 2 people who were excused!

    Well done! We've had a nice week overall! Pat yourself on the back; be proud of yourself
    for sticking with it and for what you have accomplished, regardless of your results!! You're
    still here and active on all levels!

    Let's get very excited about this, the 7th week of our journey!!

    During week 7, our plane is in the air and headed toward Madagascar an exciting destination, 5,798 miles away. This is not our longest flight, but also not the shortest.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is "No evening eating (NEE)" and we are again logging Cut 100 Calories from last week's LGTL.

    Please continue to hydrate and track your food even though we aren't logging points for
    them; these 2 things are very helpful and very important for success, particularly when traveling during a 5% challenge.

    So how do you count points for the No evening eating (NEE) challenge?

    No evening eating (NEE) challenge is another all or nothing challenge. In it, there is
    also room for one exception - "except for one planned low-calorie snack (200 calories or
    less)". Evening eating is a huge issue for me and one I appreciate being made a part of these challenges; it helps to keep me on track. For this challenge, you will report 10 points
    for each day that you do no evening eating, or do no evening eating other than one (1)
    snack of 100 calories or less. If you do *any* evening eating other than than or more
    calories than a 200 calorie snack, you would score 0 points for the day.

    This week again is Cut 100 Calories: You decide how or where you want to cut 100 calories
    from your day, wheather ist's from a meal or a snack, or by substituting one item for another. 10 points if you are successful; 0 points if not. This is also an all or nothing challenge.

    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 28th.

    Have fun and enjoy this leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the several games. Please make sure to check the In flight Fun area!!

    Every Saturday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge for self care Saturday will be offered that 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 check YOUR Spark Page and look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Have an incredibly wonderful week!!!
