With the holidays behind us and January to recover, we are now ready to face the inevitable. Summer is just around the corner. This next challenge will help you get ready for it.
We have a total of three challenges. One long term (90 days) challenges, one month long challenge and a nutrition challenge. With this many challenges to choose from, there are no excuses. So onto the details:
There will be two ways to participate in this challenge.
1) Use the Z Cut DVDs
This challenge will begin on February 4th and will run for 90 days.
Prior to Feb 4 please take measurements and pictures of yourself (front, side and back (if you can). This information stays private if you would like. However, I encourage everyone to share on the challenge thread. We are all in this together to support one another.
Also, please post on the challege message thread so that I know you are participating. I would like to award everyone who participates with a SparkGoodie.
Ok so now for the Challenge instructions:

Start a journal
On the first page of the journal write down your goals for the next 90 days. This can include anything you want in addition to your fitness goals.
Past your starting pictures on the second page. Leave 3 more blank pages. This is for your upcoming update pictures.
Write in your journal as often as you need to help keep you motivated or to help you identify habits that may need to be modified so that you can accomplish your goals.
At the end of the first 30 days, take your measurements and pictures. Paste them into your journal. Review your goals. What adjustments need to be made to them, if any?
At the end of 60 days, take your measurements and pictures. Paste them into your journal. What adjustments need to be made to them, if any?
At the end of 90 days (end of challenge) take your measurements and pictures. Paste them into your journal.
Also, review your goals. Write a journal entry summarizing your experience and acknowledging what goals you completed and which ones you still need to complete.
