Ebony,

You wounder how I get so much time to exercise, Well my thing is walking everyday due to having an English Springer dog that needs to run. So I take her for two 40+ min walks a day getting in about 5-6 mile myself. I walk in any weather nothing stops me or the dog. It also helps that the morning walk is with a bunch of other dog walker that I met over 10 years ago. And we tend to walk in the woods and around a lake so it is always fun to see the changes.

I am impressed that you do the video work out. I keep say to myself that I should get on the wii or pop in a video but I never do it. Maybe next challenge I will try. ( please don't hold me to that statement)

You are doing GREAT!!
Jan

Thanks Ladies,

I just could not figure out how the leaders in points were getting 80-90 min a day... Maybe I need to be counting more of my activities instead of just my exercise videos...

Hey Ebony,
I finally figured out I need to go to the Y for more exercise. So now I use the following methods.
-- Classes at the Y -- some are 45 minutes -- some are 60 mins.
-- treadmill or Elliptical at Y
-- Fitness Plus - for Wii -- at home
-- Nordic Track - at home
-- Stationary bike - at home
And last week I hit the jump rope. Wow - that was harder than I remember from grade school!

Hey Ebony!
I try to do a variety...weight lifting, elliptical, spinning, ab class (30 min core strengthening class),running, and yes, shoveling snow! When I can't get to the gym, or don't have time there, I do yoga & pilates DVD's at home. Another way I multitask, when watching movies with my daughter, I lift hand weights, use resistance bands, and do stretching exercises. Also, I schedule my exercise, like an appointment, so I keep it as a priority! I hope something here will help you!! Good luck reaching your goals!

One other time when the challenge grew too big they split it alphabetically so no one was way at the bottom. Mine is waaaay at the bottom too. That worked well for everybody too. Georgine

Hi Carol, Thanks for the suggestion. I to, am mired down with being at the bottom and trying to pick out totals etc. I was planning to do 2 threads in Jan., chatting and the other only for the formal challenge. I think all of us will have a much easier time working with it. (Amazing how we are thinking on the same track!!) I think I will post rules on both and hopefully we can keep them separate. A posting is going out to the entire team after Christmas and I will set it all up then. Thanks again for your comment.

EBONY, for your question, I personally count the minutes that I am walking. If shopping, I try to gauge the standing time for looking versus actual walking. I do exercises while sitting using the resistance band and stability ball. And of course, living in MN. where we are on the road to the snowiest fall season on record, shoveling is good cardio workouts. How about you others, what are you ideas/suggestions for EBONY?

Eileen- wondering if we could maybe have a special title when we start in Jan. again just for the Jan. Challenge "chat"- that way we could urge each other on, answer questions, etc. and it wouldn't lengthen the Challenge page for you. I know mine has gotten "buried" waaaay down at the bottom here. We did this in another forum and it worked well. The challenge was only used for the #'s for the challenge. Just an idea for you. Have a wonderful day everyone and keep on Sparking!

Ebony- I WISH I could do 60 min! I have back and leg issues so can't use our treadmill- everytime I try I get leg spasms at night. I have a total body type gym, love it too, my wrists don't... I am planning to try doing 10 min. on the treadmill, slowly and 10 min. with the TBG with wrist braces and see if I can do that much. They say even 10 min. is good for you. I hope this works...

On a sadder note, we started with 35 people that wanted to participate and there are 16 active through the 2nd week. It doesn't matter if you didn't post this week or last, you can still join us and see if you can hold your good habits and weight in check through the holidays. I will run this challenge again in Jan. so those of you that are a little confused, keep scanning though this thread and watch as we are posting our numbers. I hope that you can challenge me to have a couple 3 hours of totals to keep track of!!!! It will be tough through the holidays BUT I AM READY!! Come at me with those postings.

May I wish all a very Merry Christmas and have a wonderful time with your families. God bless and I will "see" you all next week!

I thought I understood how to post the running weight, but I think I am stuck in the duh zone yet - I am posting the running weight totals of the week just finished on Wednesday morning. Since I weigh myself on Wednesdays that is when I learn how much of a + or - I had for the previous week.

All I know today is I am -2 from when I started this challenge.

JANKAY, we start with a zero. (EX.starting weight is 210, this is a zero).
Week one is 208#, the running total is -2#.

Then on week two if your weight is 206, you have a -2#loss wih a running total of -4#.

Then week three if you gain +2#, the running total goes to -2# again.etc.

So, start at zero, post the changes as the weeks go by and add or subtract so that at the end of the month, you will know what you did for the entire month. Hope this helps all that are having a hard time with this. I did send Nancy an email regarding and hope that helped her as well.

With your points, just keep adding each week to the running totals.

Nancy, I believe that you subtract from your last weigh in (Last weeks weight) Then add or subtract from your total at the end. Example below

Weigh changes -

Week one -233
Week two - 222
Week three -
Week four -
Running total for weigh changes -4 lbs

Does that make sense??

Hi everyone,
Hope your week is going well. I am trying a more organized approach this week and is helping me to stay focus. Every morning I write down what I will eat for the day and also the task that need to be done. I am getting a lot more done and am not foraging for food.

Nancy love the combination of fruit. I will have to mix some up too.

Have a Great day everyone.

Hi - I keep a lot of dried fruits around - ups my fiber and gets the fruit in. Plus I put lots of dried fruit in my oatmeal when I cook it. (Usually cook 3 days of oatmeal - so I heat in microwave the other 2 days.) My current combination is dried cranberries and raisins and some dried cherries. Plus cinnamon.

that's all right. I thought maybe I got too far ahead by getting ready for this week and deleted the first week's. I certainly do appreciate all the effort you put into making this challenge a success.

Nancy, a public apology. I totally missd your post when doing totals. There are so many duplicates that it was a difficult process to find the right numbers. I have amended my error on the annoucement. Great work and keep it going!!!

Oh, did I delete my last week too soon since my score isn't mentioned? (560 and I worked so hard to stay focused on this challenge)

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon to each and every one of us. It takes a lot of work to keep going and I think we all need to be congratulated! Keep up the great work! Now, start week 2 in your same post by erasing the figures (after putting the total in the running total area) and be sure to post your weight change. You need to get credit for your hard work! If you are not sure, look near the bottom of this thread and check out my posting. Good luck to all this coming week!

This is such a challenge for me! It seems everyday there is a potluck, company supplying lunch and I look ahead and my son's birthday, my birthday, Christmas parties. I guess I will have to be very careful during the week.

I managed to stay with this for the first week - big accomplishment for me, but I think I am confused about the weight posting. Should this be at the beginning of the week or the end? I just realized that if I am posting my weight at the beginning of the week, then I'll go that last week without the final results.

So, could you just clarify how I should be posting the weight portion of the challenge

Update - I think I figured it out

Total your numbers and post them on the bottom then "erase" your numbers to start again with the same form. Continue this for the month. This way the figures are all together & easier for me to follow. Thanks for a great question!!

I usually start the morning with fruit and cut up some carrots and peppers and have them sitting out and snack on them all day long, about 4 carrots large cut into strips that really helps me get them in.Hope that is helpful...

Having a hard week too. But I am trying to get refocus so I don't ruin my first week. Had three bad days in a row. Today I think I just had brain freeze and a bad attitude. But I did go outside twice today to walk the dog. The snow is deep so I trudged not walked and could feel the burn in the thighs and butt. So that's a good thing right?? But maybe the cookie after the afternoon walk did not help. Oh well Forgive and forget and just move on. I brushed my teeth and will not eat the rest of tonight and plan on exercising during commercial.

Harrysmom- I'm not doing so great this week either, but hoping to do better & better as the month goes on.

Am I suppose update everyday or am I just being annoying?

Who knew a girl that loves sleep would have a hard time getting enough of it.

But the lack of veggies is no surprise! Does anyone have any tips? I make a mixed berry, banana & OJ smoothie with some spinach thrown in and have a green veg with supper but having a hard time getting 5 veg in without them being all fruit & potatoes.

I haven't been as diligent as I hoped to be with this challenge so I think I will try again another time.

If I can dream it I can do it.

This is my first challenge so I have a couple of questions.

1st-What does "able to post 5 days" mean? Post daily results?

2nd- Does vacuuming count as exercise? ;)

Thanks,
Christine

******* I totally lost focus the last week - I did not track my foods or exercise and ate waaaaay too many cookies. Week 4 - a total bust :-( *********




I have a problem setting goals and remaining committed to the ones I do make - so maybe this challenge will help me with both those things.

Starting weight - 132.2
week 2 = 131.4
week 3 = 130.2
week 4 = 132.2 back where I started

As for the 7.5 hours of sleep a night - is this an average? I have trouble doing this during the week. Other than that I think I can do it!

The joy of being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form possession, achievement, person

or

even-through anything that happens. That joy cannot 'Come'

to you

ever. It emantes from the formless dimention 'Within You',

from

consciouness itself and thus is one with who you are.

Love and peace,
Mary

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Back by popular demand!!
Each challenge runs for at least FOUR WEEKS as it takes at least 28 days to create new habits. The challenges will always start on the 1st day of the month. Therefore, the challenge will run December 1st to 31th, inclusive. The weigh-in days for December will be Weds. with the final weigh-in on Thurs. the 30th.

If you're up for the challenge, post here to let me know. You can sign up anytime up to and including December 1st. Good luck everyone.

WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?

This is a Contest Challenge meaning people will be competing to meet the weekly challenges. For this challenge, I will be posting the results of how each player did and declare a winning player every week.

The contest consists of Weekly Accountability. Each week, there will be a winning weekly points player, a most exercise minutes player and the most weight lost player.

Here are some of the basics:

1. We will be allotting 5 points for every 10 minutes of exercise you do.

2. Everyday you meet your personal goal, you will receive 10 points for it.

3. Weekly weigh-ins (on Weds,) - if you are uncomfortable posting your weight for everyone to see, you will have the option of just posting how many pounds you gained or lost for the week.


PART ONE: WEEKLY ACCOUNTABILITY

As many days as you can in a week, you will give yourself points for each category that you meet the weekly goal in these SIX areas:

1. Calorie Range-within your recommended range (not UNDER or OVER) - 10 points

2. Water (minimum 8 glasses per day, 64 ounces - all non-caffeinated beverages count like herbal tea and milk) - 10 points

3. Veggies & Fruits (minimum of 5 servings total per day - a serving is one medium piece of fruit or veg or half a cup of either except lettuce, which is one cup or half a cup of juice) - 10 points

4. Exercise - 10 or more minutes of exercise weekly, give yourself 5 points for every 10 minutes of exercise - exercise can be weights, cardio, walking, Pilates, yoga, etc. (If you do 15 minutes of exercise, you will only get 5 points because we round down)

5. Personal Goal – 10 points everyday that you meet this goal.


BONUS POINTS:

Give yourself an extra 50 POINTS if you post at least 5 days in a week!

The weeks for points will run from WEDS. to TUES.

In order for your weekly points to be included toward your total, please have your weekly counts posted by the start of the next week’s challenge, e.g. WEDS in the December Challenge.

“HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?” Just post on the thread.

“WHEN DO I NEED TO JOIN BY?” You can join anytime before or during the month of December. We welcome people anytime.

“WHAT IF I CAN’T POST WEEKLY?” or “WHAT IF I AM AWAY?” Please, please, please, me know if you are dropping out of the challenge or if you’re going to be away.

If you cannot post weekly, you can still participate. Post your weekly points, as you are able to. Let me know if you will be away.

Ideally, it’s all about the weekly posts. As mentioned above, in order for your points to be counted towards your total they need to be in by end of the week. And let’s face it if you are posting weekly, you are more likely to be successful in achieving your goals (and you'll earn bonus points!)

If you are going to be out of town or on vacation, etc., you can post your points and weight when you get back. Send me a Sparkmail or create a post if you know you are going to be absent for more than one week.

“THIS SOUNDS HARD!” Ah, yes, well remember, this IS a *challenge* and that means it will require commitment on every member’s part to hold yourself accountable for your weekly posts and weekly weigh-ins. It may seem simple enough, but the challenge part comes in by keeping it up every day!

Please try to stay in the challenge for the duration of the 4 weeks. If you need to drop out, please have the courtesy of letting me know. If you have a vacation or some other reason why you may be away for a period of time that would prevent you from weekly posts, please let me know - I try to be very accommodating and would like to see everyone who wants to participate do well!

YOU have to take on the challenge and make the commitment for yourself!

Having said that,

LET’S SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER as we challenge ourselves to healthy living! Ask questions, create new topics, and post often! We are all doing this together!! Check out the chat threads.

Everyone in this challenge has an open invitation to Sparkmail me. I may not be able to reply to you right away but I will do my best to do so.

YOU are challenged to:

-Post that you want to join on this thread by the start date of the challenge (November 1st) or anytime during the month.

-Post your start weight or the number "0" on the first day of the challenge.

-Post on the “Weekly Points” thread as often as possible.

-Support and encourage your fellow players!

-Commit to remaining in the challenge for the duration of the 4 weeks

OK! I think I have covered all the basics! Now, let’s be challenged and have fun too!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
