I've had the same problem with not sticking to the plan consistently. This time I'm doing better, and part of that has to do with the 3 workout a day limit on the challenge results page. If I do my workouts, I stay close to the top. If I miss one, I don't fall way down the page. I just drop down a few places. It doesn't feel impossible to do well this time in the rankings, as it has before.
Also, I'm not trying to be perfect, I'm just trying to be consistent. If I miss a workout (and I did yesterday), tomorrow is a new day. Today I'll do better.
The interval aerobics are the tough workouts for me, though I know they are effective. I really have to gear up myself mentally to get those done. Again, though, if I really don't feel like I have enough steam left to do it, I just walk on the treadmill for the appropriate amount of time.
Trying to support myself like I would a friend.
I really appreciate that you've started this topic so we can share support. How are you doing with the challenge so far?
