I found this amazing video called "20 minute Fat Blaster" from Violet Zaki's Cardio Sculpt DVD.
It also has an eight minute warm up and I usually warm down on my own for an extra 5 minutes.

I used it for my first week as my cardio section, but I did do some extra walking and exercising.

Before I start week 2 I want to make sure that this Cardio-Sculpt Video CAN be used for my cardio session. Or else I have to find something else to do. Can anyone help??

Starting this off right with a new month. My goals for the month are to make sure I get at least 5,000 steps a day, and get at least 10,000 steps twice a week. I also have a goal to get at least 25 mins of exercise EVERYDAY. For the week, my goals are to drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday (I have been seriously lacking in this department). Plus, of course, to do the exercise videos everyday too :)

Did day 4 just a moment ago, I am thinking its better for me to try and get the daily strength workout done in the mornings. Cardio can always take place in the afternoon or evening during the work week. I've been doing the strength workouts after long day's of activity so my body is fatigued, but I don't think I am giving it my best efforts. Thinking I may do this upper body resistance band workout again later today. Ok, its gorgeous out with a breeze and sun so I am going for my cardio walk. Hope others are doing good if not great with this challenge.

Just did day 2 strength workout- this one is way different than the crunchless core challenge found on one of Coach Nicole's dvds. I liked the challenge with the pilate moves in this one. Cardio I think will be me on my treadmill doing intervals with increase/decrease of the inclines too!

Well, I just signed up to take on this challenge tonight. I had already did a 45 min. outdoor cardio walk earlier this afternoon, but after reviewing this 1st week's action steps decided I would take on Day 1 challenge. I was already on SP seeking out a short cardio or strength workout to add to my day. My current goal for fitness is to burn at least 2000 calories a week while I stay in my calorie range with tracking.

Do you guys feel like a person of habit? I do, that's why I like seeking out fitness and eating challenges to help me mix it up, stay accountable and hopefully see the scale go down or clothes feeling looser by breaking through the plateaus I always hit, land and stay on. I really like Coach Nicole and her workouts. She gives great cues and she's got a couple of kickboxing cardio workouts, which mixes it up and challenges you.

Can't wait to see what is up for tomorrow.

I joined the team last week, but didn't start until yesterday due to the Easter holiday and being out of town. I had to start my week with day 2, because I already have cardio built into my week Monday - Friday at the gym. It was that, or wait another week so I could start next Sunday, but I just didn't want to wait that long! Have 4 friends doing this with me and we are keeping each other accountable. :)

I have tried to do this week 1 now 3 times, I have finally completed it. I discovered my workout week needs to be Friday to Thursday. I work 4 - 10 hour days so by Thursday I am too tired to do a decent workout it makes a good rest day without feeling guilty. I also have plenty of time to do a 1 hour workout Friday - Sunday and a 1/2 hour Monday - Wednesday.

Started week 1 yesterday. This will definitely be a challenge, but I know I need it.

My goal is to fit into my wedding dress by the end of it. I'm not too far off, totally doable. I need a good exercise routine to stick to.

Week one went fine for me. Just had trouble with the Palates.
I don't have good balance and I have trouble holding the planks.
However, I made through the video alright. My goals are to:
1) Become better balance and become healthy(mind body soul and spirit)
2) Tone up my arms and legs. That will help since I am starting a new job.
(Will be doing a lot of lifting at Wal-Mart))
3) Long term would love to keep up with my boyfriend and family member and not feel winded. This one is getting much better. (Got more energy now since I started exercising). Hope you are all well. Have a good day and a great weekend! Holly

Yesterday was a day off and a great day to catch up with Day 1 and 2 of the challenge. I am hoping this will help me break through a plateau. Weather was nice and I took advantage by getting some extra steps in while shopping. Good luck everyone.

I finished day 2. Had a 20 minute walk outside today and did the day 2 abs video. Wow. I am out of shape. Although, my abs are still pretty strong underneath! It was my thighs that were shaking like crazy doing the sit ups!!
One step forward!

I didn't start this on the day I planned to and I haven't prepared myself very well.

How do I start over?

I have been doing as much as I can and I have lost 7 lbs and some inches so I am pleased. I even did a cardio exercise in my chair at work just so I wouldn't lose the time to do it.

Planning is what I am trying to teach my kids and I am having a really tough time doing it myself.

I've started this challenge a ton of times but I'm not sure I ever finished it. Want to Fall into Shape this time. Just need something to kick up my workout plan a notch and hoping this'll do it and get me past my plateau.

Goals: Tone up. Feel strong again like I did in October of last year. Finish this challenge. Beat the plateau.

W 1 D 2 - Doing pretty good. I just got high speed internet so I can finally watch videos on the internet on my laptop. I really like the first video for cardio burn. I've done it three times already!

I feel your pain! I have an hour commute each way...also work a long day. I leave the house at 6:30 am and back home around 7/8. I have found that exercising in the morning works best for me. We have a small gym at my work (and there are other locations nearby)...and I am there by 7:30 for exercise, grab a shower, and head up to my office! If that doesn't work...try walking during lunch time.

Good luck!

W1 - D3 and going strong! The videos are very short which I appreciate! I am a morning exerciser, but leave the house early to do so. The videos are great for when I get home from work and have 10 minutes to myself! emoticon

So I am starting this today and my major challenge for the week is going to be consistency. I always track my food, though I do better some days than others, because the tracker is useless if I don't tell it the truth. It's exercise that is my problem. I get up extremely early and then am at work for 9 and a half hours a day with a 45 minute commute on either side, so I am usually very tired when I get home. If I can manage not to take naps in the afternoon then I can do my workouts and it will all be ok. But that means I need to go to bed on time every day as well, so I don't feel like I need the naps so much. Funny enough, exercise should help with that problem, so here's hoping that adding a little more structure is what I have been needing!

Just did Week 1 Day 5 video. Of course I started on June 18. So that's 13 days to do 5 days of exercise. It's a new week. I KNOW I can do better. I need to have the TV lower so I can watch it without looking Up off the floor. Maybe on a laptop would be better. I can feel the abs burning after that Pilates workout though. That's a good thing. Thanks Coach Nicole.

Week 1, day 1...I have been exercising regularly - but looking for a way to change things up and thought this challenge may do it with short videos to accompany my regular cardio workouts. Looking forward to the first video after work today emoticon

Hello everyone, I'm Marie and today was my 1st bootcamp challenge exercise {although I signed up over a month ago} need to make myself accountable for lack of actions. I've been doing a parasite cleanse and now I know the reason for lack of energy along with other health issues - Yuck!! Ready to put the pedal to the metal now.

I am on Week 1 Day 3 also and my form is so horrible I am glad nobody is watching ! I just tried to do the best I could and make sure I didnt kill myself ! I have a very hard time with anything backwards bending or lifting up my trunk. My back is saying no no ! I am sure that if I had a person in my living room telling me what I am doing wrong it would be better but as the French say "C'est la vie"

I'm on Week 1, Day 3. Just finished the video for the day. I'm actually surprised at how much I can actually do. My form is horrible and that is something I need to work on but the fact that they are short and not overly complicated (so far) makes it a really easy thing to slip into my crazy schedule.

I'm unsure if my neighbors downstairs would appreciate me doing the kick boxing video above them. Doesn't look too high intensity but I try to be super careful not to disturb them by doing high intensity workouts above them! Bands and stability ball work outs work well though!

Ah I'm forgetting the video's. It's been so nice in Seattle that I've been taking my dog on extended walks (even though I'm only logging as 20 minutes because he stops to sniff and pee so much!). But I'm eating well, drinking my water, TAKING MY FISH OIL (life changer this is!) and feeling great! Thanks for the challenge!

Day 1, Week 1. Super excited because this challenge gives me a goal and a focus and I really need that. (Apparently!!!) I did the cardio kickboxing video w coach Nicole and am very surprised by the intensity of a 10 minute workout. I kept hearing how HIIT workouts can accomplish more in less time. I think I see why.

No problems with the nutrition end, but struggling mightily with the videos. I'm into week 2 of week 1. My knees seem to be a previously undiscovered problem. I can do cardio or strength training, but not both on the same day. I will continue working out daily, but have to build up to the real challenge.

Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Day 2, Week 1. Did the crunchless core video. Made it through, but my knees and wrists really ache! Only did a few minutes of walking before my knees made me stop. I hope to get more walking later today. I don't want to push to hard and have to stop altogether.

My goal is to actually stick with it, 4 weeks. Not too hard, but I never seem to follow through.

Someone once told me it takes 3 month to form a new habit. Thinking about it makes 3 months seem like a long time, but if i break it down to weekly or daily goals I can hopefully make this a habit!

Wish me luck :)

My main goal for week one is to simply do it!!!!

Day 1 - I did the kick boxing video. This was quite hard for me. I've let myself get way out-of-shape. That video used to be a breeze - something I did on a light day! Back on the food tracker too. I downloaded the new app too.

Week 1 Day 2 Done

My goal for tomorrow to get my cardio in is to do 3 10 min walks on my breaks at work.

I will run the race of losing weight that I may lay hold of the prize and make it mine.
