Just a headsup... I was doing the 500 a day on my own for quite some time, and had NO results. It turned out I was burning TOO many cals and not consuming enough (since I was still running on my original SP rec'd cals). SOOOO Frustrating! I printed out my meals/workouts and took them to my doc and nutritionist and both said the same thing: eat more or workout less. So, I'm back to using the SP cal intake and doing my 500 cal cardio (30 mins) on M,W,F and strength training Tues, Thurs, Sat. Hopefully this will help me see a difference! LOL! Just be aware, if you up your cal burn to 500x5days a week, tweak your SP profile to reflect an intended cal burn of 2500 a week so that you can adjust the needed cal intake accordingly! :) Have fun!! :)
So, all I did today was clean, but according to my HRM I burned 840 calories doing it. So....meh. It's something. I had to take a day off.

I will take on this challange, my son's birthday party is on Satuarday 25th, so I'll try this for a week, starting today. Wish me luck. Will post everything this week. Kinda excited, looking forward to it.
I just may have to try 500/day. Seems like a lofty goal for me. I do have a heart rate monitor, but haven't coordinated it yet. Maybe that should be my first goal: get it working on Sunday and actually try it out!
BEETCARROT-TJ is Turbo Jam. It is SO much fun and a really great workout. I got it because I really can't stand doing any kind of cardio at the gym (though I still do a little to warm up), the time flies SO quickly when I'm jammin!

I will join you but I have to have at least one rest day a week or I might go mad. That of course does NOT count my present 3 days of non activity and poor diet. I am back on the wagon again tomorrow if it kills me.
