Okay folks. Summer challenge time.
And you all get to customize it to your own fitness level and/or preferences.
You have a choice of:
OPTION (1) posting to the daily accountability thread (found here: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
posting your weight weekly on this thread: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
OPTION (2) choosing one of the following challenges:
a) get your fruits and veggies in - get at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day ("freggies"). If you are not getting anywhere near this yet, build up slowly, otherwise, you may have a bit of a problem with gas.
b) eat within your sparkpeople calorie range, or stick to whatever plan you are using (Curves, Weight Watchers, etc.).
c) cardio challenge - exercise for at least 3 times a week - doing anything cardio related - swimming, running, walking, dancing, jogging, aerobics, biking, etc. - for at least 30 minutes. If you are no where near this number of minutes, remember to build up slowly to prevent injury. But 10 - 15 minutes a day is a good minimum for beginners.
d) strength training - get in 2-3 days of strength training a week, if you do full body workouts, or do a part of the body each day - just remember not to exercise the same body area on back to back days to prevent injury. For example, if you workout abs and core on Monday, don't do core again on Tuesday, but do upper or lower body instead. Return to core/abs on Wednesday or Thursday.
Feel free to combine these challenges and do as many you as you like.

Post your progress for OPTION 2 here. For OPTION 1, post to the links provided.
As my summer holidays don't start until June 28, I don't consider summer to have started until then. Therefore, the challenge will run from May 12 - June 30.
Weigh in for your starting weight this weekend!
Let's go team!

The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
