The first time through this challenge, I lost about 10 pounds. Now I'm up two. Today is day 1 again and I hope by the end of this challenge I will be down one pants size, one bra size and down to my goal: seven pounds left. Oh yeah, plus better repository health!

for this first week I would like to lose 1 pound, I am not aiming for 25 pound, because I am only working out for minimal 10 min daily.

So I decided to start all over again since I didn't start at the beginning of a month.
Today was my first day.
It was a great workout I even added a walk after. It felt great

So that helps.

week one day 1.
I did the daily video and felt awesome.
I also did 20 min pilates afterwards, because I still to take kick-boxing classes this evening.
But this 8 min warm-up really warms you up.

My goal for week 1 is to lose 1 pound.

Oh NO! My videos all abruptly stopped working again. (Shame on them. Coach Nicole says to never stop abruptly.) But seriously, I don't know what to do. Does anyone else have this problem?

Week 1 Day 7 in the can!! Woo Hoo. Finished up with a whopping 60 minute bike and the 15 minute ab video. I never would have imagined that when I started sparking again that I would be able to do an hour on the bike already! On to week 2!!

W1D5 30 minute walk and daily vid. Haven't done that long of a walk in awhile. A victory for me. I'm not using my weight as an excuse anymore.

Yes we can Sableness! We ARE doing it. One day at a time.

CYANI48, 20 min is 20 min. ANY minutes are good! I like your scale. Mine said that when I was 17 too. I don't think mine would know how to register 110 anymore!

W1D3 It was freezing out when I went for my walk so I only did 20 minutes but I got it in! My scale is dead (it said I was 110 lbs....hahaha...when I was 17!) so I don't know it I've dropped anymore weight so I'll concentrate on feeling good instead!

W1D2 Thanks Dawn! Or Nwad should I say? emoticon Good for you for ordering the fitness tracker!

I did 30 minutes walking and the day 2 video. So happy to be back exercising. I'm having circulation and other pre diabetes issues, so I'm hoping to halt that progression with a healthier lifestyle. Not to mention weight loss! Although I don't like to call it weight loss because I don't want to find it again...lol

W1D3: So happy I have my treadmill back. 45 minutes interval training did the arm video and I'm also doing a plank torture (I mean challenge). I really like interval training. I see faster boosts in fitness and I love it.

I feel really good about this challenge and am looking forward to how good I will feel in a few weeks. I've had a few health challenges due to my weight lately and I know it's time.

Lol I just started day one. I did my first video and thank goodness it's early morning and the curtains are closed!!! I feel like I flailed about for all 9 minutes! At one point I had myself tied up in a knot that I wasn't sure I'd get out of! Out of breath and a fit of laughter....what a great way to start the day. I'm sure (*twinkle) next time will be smoother...it all about practice after all..

I got way behind and restarted on Day1 Week 1 today. It's my 3rd time doing the 8 minute cardio video and it's getting a little easier, but my heart is still pounding by the end!

Started late: but will complete the challenge anyway. I did the toning videos, tracked my food everyday and did cardio 5 days. I lost 3 lbs. The key for me is be aware of how much I am eating. emoticon emoticon

I did the workouts daily, unable to complete video but did all I could do. Major goal to be able to do workout without injury or aggravating injuries to back, knees and legs. I am not going to quit but may have to do the challenge many times to complete it. Did feel better for having tried to do them. Had a sense of accomplishment for doing what I did.

I love the videos. It helps me to watch the whole thing first and then do it. I am not surprised and scrambling. Some of the exercises are hard, I just do the best I can. I try to do them first thing in the morning. It's a nice way to start the day.

I did day 4 of week 1 of the January Jumpstart Challenge and a 20 minute walking video. I am also proud of myself because I did it before work today. It is hard for me to get up in the morning so it was a big deal that I got up and exercised before work. It felt good to have my exercise done for the day.

Day 4 done, core video and 30 min bike ride. I'm enjoying this first week because the exercise is realistic for me to keep up in the beginning while I'm getting myself back into exercise after neglecting it for so many years.

SUGARJESS, we all have that from time to time, especially this time of year. I learned early on in my life as a mom, that motivation or lack of were excuses to do or not to do the task at hand. I didn't feel like doing dishes or laundry, but I just stopped thinking about it, and just tackled the task at hand, and most of the time I felt like doing more, some times not, but I always felt better. Many days I did not feel like being a stay at home mom with little ones at home, I put on a smile and did the "fake it till you make it" technique, sooner or later I felt better and I was no longer faking it.

That saying, just show up and do 10 minutes, really does work, no matter what the task at hand is. Right now I have a pile of laundry on my bed, another in the dryer, I need to do some quick 10 minutes of maintenance to my washer to do another load, I need to go over Algebra with my daughter, then start dinner, oh and feed the chickens. I'll do little bits at a time, and it will get done, if not it will be waiting for me in the morning (that alone usually motivates me). My point is, just do your 10-15, SP makes it so easy for us, even if you don't feel like it, do it then track it, it's as good as checking it off a list. The only way over that hurdle is to jump over it, or knock it down and kick it-teehee. I hope I may have given you just a bit of a lift, and maybe some advice that works. Feel free to friend me if you like, my Spark time can be hit or miss at times, but hey that's life, it happens. Keep us posted!

Joined this team and challenge last Jan. too it was fun looking forward to fun work out again. I think it is a good way to Jump Start your year!!!!

Do more of what makes you healthy

You can crumble or you can conquer

The only way to finish your workout is to start

Those who succeed are the ones who look in the mirror and see no change, but continue anyway knowing they'll get there in time

emoticon Week 1....DONE!!!!! Along with a P90X3 upper body and a killer ab workout.
I wish sparkpeople had a better way of tracking the different workout options for P90X3. I have no idea how many calories I burned during P90 or the ab workout we did. :(

I got a late start due to a lingering chest cold, but I just finished week one, I did double (and triple) up the videos.

My goal is to be consistent and to utilize different exercise routines so that my activities are well-rounded. I tend to jump from one thing to the next very quickly and can easily pass right over my exercise plans. I need to be sure to make specific "activity" a priority.

Ok it is really hard to do any type of exercise on the weekend's. Saturday's are always out and about going to horse shows and/or just trial riding. Sunday's day of rest and spent doing something with the kiddo's. Hmmm, I need to think of a way to incorporate exercise into the weekends.

I'm behind. I will have to catch up today by doing yesterday and todays video. I'm hoping to get those in as I will be starting (again) a P90X/Insanity/T25/Tapout...etc. class today. Will be doing that 3 days a week (Mon, Tues, and Thurs.) I'm excited about going back to that class and I hope I can keep up with this challenge too! Oh yeah, I'm also up a pound for the week.
:( I have GOT to do better on my calorie intake. I don't really know why that's being such an issue for me this go around. BUT, I know I can do it. Just have to work a little bit harder.

I just finished week 1, after getting off track a couple of days. Feels good to finish. I always find workout videos to be so intimidating and I really like Coach Nicole's. I think they're great for a noobie like me!
