#1 Reason Why I Am Glad I Joined the 5% Summer Challenge

Saturday, September 03, 2011

About 8 weeks ago, THETURTLEBEAR invited me to join the 5% challenge. I had seen that she and Teresa159 were both part of the spring challenge, and thought it might be cool. Am I ever glad I did! And for several reasons. The top reason, however, is because I felt accountable to my teammates to get those fitness minutes in every day (well, most every day). Fitness minutes are the one thing you track consistently each week. I wanted my team to win (even though we haven't yet)! But, we were really ALL winners. At least the people who got those fitness minutes in. For me, that is the most important key to weight loss.

So, if you are looking for something to add a little bit of friendly competition to your sparking, as well as something to help you reach your goals, sign up! If you like to exercise, sign up for the Determined Daisies team!
