Happy to say I have been maintaining my weight for the last 3 years in a very healthy range . My activities are limited by arthritis and degeneration of my spine and neck. I walk and do some stretches given to me to my physical therapist. I love to be in the yard and garden messing around




Things to think about :)

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.
Mary Anne Radmacher



There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

"You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."

    CONGRATULATIONS on your second week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Mexico city, Mexico, logged 9,304 exercise miles, 1,520 points for Nutrition Tracking, 1,536 points for water and it looks like we have a nice overall loss for the week!

    You should be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, and for those of who who say to me, your results were not what you wanted to see... You stuck to it!! Very Well done!!!

    Let's get excited about this, the 3rd week of our journey!! The plane is currently heading toward Lisbon, Portugal which is 5,397 exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Portion Control & Measures 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 exactly do you get points for when it comes to Portion Control & Measures?

    This means, for the challenge: MEASURE EVERYTHING! Portion control is earned for
    each meal where you measure/weigh all your food and drinks. 5 points for each meal,
    3 meals a day. This means a Daily MAXIMUM of 15 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.

    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. (This is also not the same as MEASURE EVERYTHING - one is measuring and the other is putting everything you eat into your tracker).

    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 & exercise miles before 11:59PM Friday, October 25th.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the Alphabet game. Currently, the category is 5 letter words!

    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 look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie

    October is the month
    When the smallest breeze
    Gives us a shower
    Of autumn leaves.
    Bonfires and pumpkins,
    Leaves sailing down —
    October is red
    And golden and brown…
