The BLC17 TNT (Trim & Tone) Thursday challenge for today was to do:
1. 5 Minute Cardio Warm Up - 5 points
2. Choose 4 Upper Body Exercises – 2 sets of 10-12 reps – 5 pts per exercise = 20 pts total
3. Choose 3 Core Exercises – 25 reps of each - 5 pts per exercise = 15 pts total
4. Choose 3 Lower Body Exercises - 2 sets of 10-12 reps - 5 pts per exercise = 15 pts
5. Cool Down Stretch - 5 pts
BONUS – Get 40 bonus points for drinking at least 8 glasses of water today.
I did not plan on doing my elliptical today, but when I saw I had to do 5 mins of cardio and
I didn't know WHAT to do, I figured I'd just do my elliptical. This was a bonus.
These are the exercises I did:
Side Plank on Ball, Alternating Dumbbell Biceps Curls, Boxer,One-Arm Dumbbell Rows, Seated Dumbbell Triceps Extensions, Low Mount Abduction with Band, Lying Hamstring Curls with Ball, Wall Squats with Ball, Dumbbell Side Bends, and Crunches with Ball.
So, I got my 60 points for doing the toning challenge, but I'm not sure I am going to get the last of my water in for today. So far I have 48 ozs done. I will try!

On the BLC17 Team you get to apply for 3 teams and then you are placed on one of them by the team administration. Today was the team announcements and I am on the Crimson Butterflies! This is the description of the team when I applied:
"If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies." ~Author Unknown
This team is about change. Changing our negative thoughts into positive actions. Changing the way we think and feel about ourselves and about diet and exercise. We are here to support and motivate and challenge each other as we work together toward our own individual goals. We encourage each and every team member to participate in daily and weekly challenges, we require you to post a minimum of three times a week, and we expect you to respect and value others opinions/beliefs.
Each week will begin with Wednesday weigh-in, Thursdays are “TNT” days (Tighten ‘N Tone), every week-end (Friday-Monday) there will be different challenges, and Tuesday is “LCW” Day (Last Chance Workout). Participation, not perfection, is our number one goal. Most of all we want you to have fun, form new friendships, make daily exercise a habit and learn lifestyle/nutrition changes that will last a lifetime.
ACCOUNTABILITY and COMMITMENT are the keys to make both you and this team successful. So…
Are you ready to make a change? If you are tired of being a caterpillar and long to be a beautiful butterfly this team is for you.
Here are the other lucky Spark members on my team:
CRIMSON BUTTERFLIES TEAM
TRESSA48 ~ Captain
BECKYQUIGLEY ~ Co-Captain
RUMBLETIGER ~ Co-Captain
I am looking forward to getting to know you and offering my support and encouragement to you all. I know I will be needing your help also during this challenge and look forward to the times you will be there to help me through the rough patches. I hope to be able to stop by each one of your SparkPages to say Hello and lend support to you when necessary!

The Biggest Loser Challenge 17 Spark Team challenge begins this Wednesday, 9/7/11, and runs for 12 weeks! On Monday we find out which teams we are on, which everyone is anticipating! I have mixed feeling about the challenge, as I am just starting to try to plan when I have time to exercise, as well as getting back into the routine of getting up early to take my daughter to school. I want to lose at least 5 lbs before my 40th birthday next month. The scale hasn't budged for me in quite awhile, so I am trying to do the best I can to fix that!
Below is this weekend's team challenge that I will be keeping track of here.
Best wishes for a successful 12 weeks to all my fellow BLC17 team mates!
