Steps to Fitness Updates

Please use this space to record your progress in various areas of fitness. An example entry here might answer any or all of the following questions:

  1. How many steps are adding up on your pedometer? (I took ____ steps in ____ days)
  2. How is your weight loss going? (I have lost _____ lbs in ____ weeks or months)
  3. How about other goals? (have you found healthier eating and fitness habits, did you shed inches from your waistline or drop a pant or dress size?)

I think it would be a good idea to record something positive here at least once a week. You can even personalize it by saying something like, "This week I decided to drink an 8 oz glass of water before any other drink of juice or anything, and so far I'm doing pretty good."

Well, I will look to see responses every Friday, so if it's not there at the start of the week, we won't bug you, but maybe we'll send out an auto-reminder to everyone on Friday if I don't see all the posts. Maybe... we'll see how it goes.

Bob Green's 12 Weeks

All right, my fellow life-preservers (heehee), here's a space for you to record your progress on the Bob green 12 Week plan. How are you doing? What's working for you (give advice) and what's not (where might you need encouragement or help?)

Let's keep eachother motivated! Stop by here once a week or every two weeks to let us know how it's going and don't forget to encourage one another.

Also, you can find a link to the Bob Green 12-Week plan by clicking on the main title of this post, and/or finding the related link in the list of sites on the main page of this blog.

The 50 Million Pound Challenge

The 50 Million Pound Challenge

Here is the link to the 50 Million Pound Challenge Website. I have started my personal challenge tonight, and I think it is a great place to start. There are great resources and information available, and there is even an option to create a group/team so each member can support the others. I like the page that talks about Nutrition and a healthy diet plan. It gives suggestions of healthy foods to eat throughout the day.

Weekly Inspiration

Here is a new blog dedicated to encouragement, inspiration, hope, perseverance, and anything else positive. I will try to add a new post every week, but if anyone has a suggested addition, I am completely up for it. Just e-mail me your ideas, and maybe you will see your suggested piece in the next week's post. I would have you add your own posts, but that can get a little messy. You can comment though, on any of the weekly posts, and I'll look forward to it.

Just want to talk? Feel free. Use this space to just be yourself and to talk about anything you want.

Just for Fun

The title says all. Use this spot to just have some fun. Jokes, Stories, etc... Go for it.

Suggestion "Box"

Please let me know any ideas you have for additions to this blog. What else should we share or talk about?

Information for Your Station

Okay...it didn't make sense the first time I said it, but that didn't stop me from adopting the phrase quite a few months ago (information for your station)...

In any case, this will be a place to post any new information you have come across, which you think would be good for others to know about.

Did you find a great website? Read an amazing and/or informative article or book? See something neat on TV?

Let us know!

Ooh! Look What I Found!

Here is a place to post new items you have found that are good for you and hopefully also tasty. For example, I just learned that I really like the whole grain version of Keebler 's Club Crackers. They are just as easy to buy, and taste almost better. They have about half of everything that's in the regular crackers (less fat, less calories, less carbs). So, give 'em a try, and enjoy!

Go ahead and add your newly discovered items to the list. You can also include things that you found a long time ago, but might be news to someone else.


Here is a place to post healthy (or easy/simple/not too bad for you) recipes. I'll try to find and sample new ones as often as I can. Then, I'll share the recipe, and my thoughts about the taste, etc.

Ideally, these would be health conscious recipes, yet somewhat simple to make.

Happy Sampling!
