I finished yesterday. I liked that this made me work out, but I was getting bored with the videos. This last week I was doing two videos a day and none the next. I was much more intense on my cardio as I have recently started the couch to 5K program (just completed week 2, but did it 2x as I did not feel ready to move on). I feel stronger and I have lost a couple of pounds.

Due to interruptions (vacay and some unpleasantness, too) I had to put off this final week. I didn't give up, tho. I came back and continued from where I had left off. I haven't been very happy with myself about how I did with this. But, I at least did it. I hope to take away from this that I will now include ST back into my daily routine. I had done that for awhile last year & then stopped (I don't remember why I stopped?) Anyway, here I am again...starting up the ST habit again. I hope to continue this. My next challenge I will do for myself is to continue on with the 28 day plan in Coach Nicole's new DVD. I had purchased that at the beginning of starting this team challenge.

I was on vacation part of last week, so it took a few extra days. Now I am thinking about heading over to boot camp!

Despite some bumps in the road, i.e. injuring my knee three weeks in , I actually finished. I'm definitely fitter and stronger than I was to begin with, and it's gotten me into a good routine. AND I can now do 45 minutes of TaeBo without a break - woohoo!

I finished on Sunday but I have been sick since Saturday. My asthma is making it impossible for cardio and very little energy for toning videos. i am not done or quitting; only letting my body recover so I can exercise well. I will be starting the 28 day bootcamp officially tomorrow. :) Here is to all of us who completed this commitment to ourselves!!

Well, January is finished, however, although this four weeks is over, I am not finished. In my opinion, we can never call this journey "finished". This is a journey to wellness and this challenge just happened to be one small portion of it. Now, on to part two (or is it two-hundred?). Good luck Sparkers!!

Today is my last day and couldnt wait to get weighed, lost 7lb which is amazing as I had a very bad week 3. Discovered it is my weekends that let me down so this past weekend I ate on a diet all the time, no treats, no alcohol, and it has worked. Will learn from that. Heaven knows why I behave different at weekends, I am retired (early) so it is not a celebration but I still treat it as I did when I worked. No more.

Finished Sunday! Woo Hoo! Thought I was done, but found I had missed video 3 of week 4, so I did that Sunday. I loved this challenge. Learned some new techniques. Loved pilates, and will do some of coach Nicole's videos now. Also, to keep the momentum going I signed up for the Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge.

This was a good kickstart to the new year and helped me to sneak in a little more exercise to my day even when I was tired. The short segments made me more likely to do something as opposed to nothing on my tired days. Hope I can keep this up and lose a little weight.

I am so proud of myself for finishing the January Jumpstart Workout Challenge. It helped me get back on track for my weight loss, I had been in a slump not losing any weight for awhile. But now I see there are lots of different exercises I can do that are fun and challenging to do and also keep me from getting bored. I exceeded my fitness minutes goal for the month, and eventhough I didn't eat very healthy, I lost a little weight!

This was so great and actually fun! I feel like I paid more attention to my choices and made better fitness decisions because of this challenge and during the first three weeks I really feel like I made progress.
While this last few days was rough (I had surgery) I know that as I heal I can get right back to where I was and move ahead.
We can do this!

Well, I am done. I am glad I found the video's. They are wonderful. I really enjoy them. It helps change up things when I don't have much time. I have done OK on this challenge, but wish I would have done more. But, it was a good kick start, and now, I can keep going. I found that I can find 10-15 minutes each day for just ME!!!!! I needed that!!!! Thanks for doing this challenge!!!
