I am sending you lots of good energy and patience vibes.
My task over the next few weeks is to research how to add vibrancey to all the wood surrounds and doors in our house and then set to it. Our children think we should paint everything white but I just love the warmth that wood has.

Well it is understandable when you have others stuff in your abode that decluttering may be harder. I am filling up a moving van right now to move my mother and sister in with me. I know it will take a while to get my home back to normal.

I'm having an awful job decluttering. My son has all his worldly goods stored around our home and he won't move into his home for another 3 months. emoticon

However I have been downstairs and at least tidied it up over the weekend.

Well, a week late........I will give this some consideration.

Some has suggested that we revive this revival, so I'm issuing a revival of the Challenge Revival!

Similar to a church revival this challenge will last for a week (or as long as it works!) starting today. And also like a revival we want to take something we've been taught and breath fire in it again. So here is your challenge revival. Each day for a week starting, I want you to take one of the old challenges that you are no longer doing any more and breath new fire into it. Maybe it's The Scavenger Hunt or the Menu Planning or, my personal favorite, Assorted Candies. Doesn't matter. Each day, you will pick one and revive it. You have until Sunday to figure out what you want to do and then jump in.

Let's breath life back into this team!!!

Yesterday I stayed with my plan-ate what I packed for breakfast and lunch and planned snacks-ate the planned dinner-sort of - I left the meat out! It was really good and filling enough without it so we will use that in a stir fry tonight. The rest of the week I will be out of town-back Sun. eve as I go for my annual (religious) retreat. I will practice my mindfulness and log my food etc on paper. I'll try and post it in the tracker when I get back.
Glad you had a good trip!

Okay, Gloria, no more bunnies in the house and no more problems staying on task. Are there anymore booby traps sit out waiting to snare you.

I can really not talk because I am not doing much better. We are on spring break this week and visiting with family. I spend 2 day on the road, driving, visiting, eating. On one had I am meeting my one challenge, which is to "stop the clock". Normally, I would drive all the way thru in 1 day and be tired and uptight. But this time we stopped at a hotel, dropped in to visit a friend for a few hours and then leisurely drove the rest of the way stopping often. It was great! except, I munched the whole way. And I left all my fruit at home.

Rhoda, I'm not sure how I did on staying at the lower end of my range yesterday, but after supper I "flunked" quitting when satisfied! I sat down in my chair to read and there was that piece of Chocolat bunny-slightly more than 1/3 left. Sad to say he is no more! PTL! Now I can be more mindful of what I neeed to do! emoticon

My personal challenge this week is to stay within my calorie range each day through Saturday. I plan to do that by planning my meals the night before, which has proven successful to me in the past.

I am pretty sure I will be doing some "sumo wrestling" I need to become much more conscious of what I am eating but also when I am satisfied. The hardest part of this for me is stopping eating once I find I am satisfied. There was a second part to this and I will have to look again to see what and if I want to include that part also. Oh, it is eating at the lower end of our calorie range. Also hard for me. If I am paying attention, I can stay withing the range, but not at the low end usually.

Nice to know there are at least three of us. I think one of mine will be the menu planning. That will certainly help and then I think the assorted candy, such fun. By the way, where is Katty?

go to the team page for our Flybabies and there is a section for challenges. You may have to read a few posts to fully understand a challenge, but the main idea should be in the title.

THANK YOU!! I think we all need this, since we seem to be missing Katty's leadership. I know I miss "chatting" with all of you. I will have to look through some of the old challenges and see what I come up with as some that may challenge others are such strong habits for me and vice versa. Have a good week everyone.

Okay, so I'm not Katty and certainly I don't have her creativity when it comes to challenges. But I need something to jumpstart me back into the game. So I'm issuing a Challenge Revival!

Similar to a church revival this challenge will last for a week starting on Sunday. And also like a revival we want to take something we've been taught and breath fire in it again. So here is your challenge revival. Each day for a week starting on Sunday, April 11th, I want you to take one of the old challenges that you are no longer doing any more and breath new fire into it. Maybe it's The Scavenger Hunt or the Menu Planning or, my personal favorite, Assorted Candies. Doesn't matter. Each day, you will pick one and revive it.
