Well, the challenge is over, but there's no reason we can't do it again!

I think that's a great idea. I don't know about others, but it would be really good for me. I really have fallen off the exercise wagon. (I broke a rib and stepped on some glass, that didn't help, but it's probably not the only reason.)

Let's start off with a simple individual challenge this week, and do the team thing in January.

I have posted a very simple pre-Christmas challenge in the challenge forum. All you have to do is exercise 3 times before Christmas and post about it. Either cardio or ST.

I have also started a sign up thread for a 3 week cardio challenge like this one to start on January 1st. The link for that is here: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

... and at the end of the second week, it is team B2 that wins.

Thanks to all who participated!
I don't know about you, but it helped motivate me.

I just did the totals for the two teams.

Team B - 6 points
Team B2 - 6 points

Good work!

Let's see if we can improve on those scores next week.

If anyone else would like tg join, it is not too late. Just post here, and I will assign you to a team.

The teams are uneven, but that's OK. Instead of using total points we can use average points.

I will post threads for each team to report in. However, feel free to choose a new name and post a new thread to replace your team thread if you want. I leave it to each team to plan their own strategy.

Welcome all!

The requirements for the leader's job are fairly simple. Just keep the thread for your team going and help your team members to motivate each other.

Perhaps the first week, you might like to introduce yourselves (first names) and pick a team name. You can give each other suggestions for exercises, or throw down side challenges, like do 50 pushups, walk around the block, or whatever.

I have been on some teams where someone even started a team game. That is completely optional. The one basic requirement is to try and make sure everyone posts what they did by Sunday. (I said points would be awarded on Sunday, but I think I will total the points on Monday to be sure everyone has time to post on Sunday, if they choose to. I( tend to take Sundays as rest days, but not everyone does. )

Sounds good - count me in! I would love more information on what you would need for the additional leaders as well...I may be willing to sign up for that as well!

Announcing our first team challenge.

The challenge is to do 20 min of cardio at least 3 days a week. Post to your team thread each day you do at least 20 min. of cardio. Your team will earn 3 points if you do it 3 days. They can get up to 2 bonus points if you do it 5 days.

We will start January 10th and go until Jan. 23rd. Points will be awarded on the two Sundays.

I will be looking for two captains to help motivate their teams too. You might like to add in some side challenges. (Not for points, but for fun and motivation.)

We will have 2 teams. Sign up here!
