I like that.
When I get some time on the computer tomorrow, I'll set up a challenge thread for the ongoing weight/inches/BMI one. Then we can get busy on thinking of some weekly or monthly ones. I like your ideas!

The idea to start small and then keep adding to it each week is a great one!

What about running one from June to August for a combo of weight, inches, and BMI loss. We could do different challenges for the cardio, strength training, and nutrition each month or break in down into weekly challenges like we have done before. Something like eat at least 1 fruit & veggie and 10 minutes of cardio this week then increase for the next week to 2 fruits & veggies and 20 minutes of cardio, then 3 fruit & veggie and 30 cardio as an example here. Adjust the numbers how you see fit. Then maybe add the strength training with all of this for the next month to work us all back up. You could also include the water and cutting down on soda consumption which I still have maybe one or two a day for the headaches. What do both of you think?

Good idea, FRANCESCA.
I remember Cherly and I were talking about having a more-ongoing weight loss challenge, lasting for a few months. We would post our weigh ins weekly (and measurements if we wish).

We could then have monthly challenges of exercise or nutrition.

what do you guys think?

An exercise nuitrition one would make a nice change and then may be we can go to weight/inches loss for July. What do you think? I am looking forward to it as I work better with friends rather than on my own.emoticon

Cherly and I were talking about starting a challenge soon.

What do you think, FRANCESCA? A straight weight loss one? Measuring inches and weight loss? Or an exercise, nutrition one?

thanks for letting us know! It sounds like fun.

Those of you who are interested in a challenge this summer may want to check this out, as I do not know if I will be able to run any this summer or not.
