I hope LEMONLYMAN got some miles in these last couple of days! Either way - we have met 2 goals for sure!! I'd say that's pretty good for a crew that got smaller as things went on!

By the time I post for yesterday and today, I'll have about 10-12 miles to add to the team total. I'll post for yesterday later this evening (I need to sync my Fitbit yet).

Today is the last day!!! I managed to get a little bit of time on the treadmill this morning - I was so tired that I wasn't up to doing my ST workout. It's not a lot, but it is something I will add to the miles at the end of the day. I hope we can meet the mileage!!! I have faith that we will! I know we will meet the squats and emoticon job on the push-ups, everyone!!! Let's end this month on a high note!

Gingerhawk and Alicia...great job on the nerdfitness. It is something how seemingly healthy foods can actually be pretty processed, full of sugar, etc. My boyfriend thought trail mix was healthy until he realized the sugar content from M&M's dried fruit, cereals, etc. Even the nuts were really salty and when you look at the quantity of nuts eaten, it was over 1000 calories and tons of fat. It's eye opening.

Love the do it now article. It really is a good way of accomplishing goals and tasks. That is cool that it helped you with a work project.

My favorite nerdfitness was "James Bond for a weekend". He found a way to travel for nearly free and went to Monaco (by way of France, and lots of cool adventures there). The article was about accomplishing goals (Epic Quest of Awesome.....you can write your own quest too), leveling up his life, and being in awesome physical condition while he travels too (bodyweight exercises like we've been doing in our challenges). Monaco is super affluent. He found a way to use airmiles, etc. to pay his way. So,.......Tuxedo (with a cool story behind it)...check. Room at the Fairmont for free with rooftop pool overlooking the ocean.....check! Meeting mysterious women who helped him...check! A little gambling at the super fancy-schmancy casinos...check! One handed push ups in front of the Monte Carlo (with security watching very closely).....check! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=playe
r_embedded&v=1U08JVCqRiE

Love how it is a fitness site, but he has such a great way to make suggestions for well rounded lives. Fitness, nutrition (big into Paleo), and spirit. It does all interconnect. Epic and awesome!

Here's part of what he ended with that struck me:

"I am a normal nerd – I graduated with a degree in Economics and immediately took a desk job. A few years back, I started Nerd Fitness as a hobby because I liked helping people. When I quit my day job last summer to focus on NF full time, I had less probably 3,000 dollars in the bank and no money coming yet in through the site!

Two days ago, I lived like a prince in one of the most luxurious countries in the world.

Anything is possible – you just have to BELIEVE it’s possible, and then find a way to make it happen (he goes on to tell in detail how he made it happen)....

Your turn!

I encourage you to stockpile memories from events and adventures that will make you say “I can’t believe this is happening” or “I will never forget this.” Do not stockpile regret; there’s far too much of that going around these days – “remember when I/we did that? That was awesome!” trumps “I wish I had done that” 100 times out of 100.

Life is short, so start planning today – what is one story you hope to have, and one step you can take today to get closer to making it happen? “When I have enough money” or “when the timing is right” are just excuses to keep you from putting real effort towards making things happen. Yeah, you might need to work smarter or harder, you might need to make some sacrifices or changes, and you will probably need to take a few risks, but the experiences are worth the effort. -

Okay, so here's the breakdown! It looks like we have 5 active participants right now. There are 2 days left of the month, including today. Here is what each of us needs to do each day to reach our goals:

37 squats each day per person
3 push-ups each day per person emoticon
Planks will not be met - but we can still do them for a great core!!!
4.035 miles each day per person

We are SOOOOO CLOSE!!! Let's knock out some miles and some squats!!! Awesome job on those push-ups!!!

And go "beast mode" for 20 seconds!! I love the movie We Bought a Zoo, and I remember that line and how great it was. I don't know yet what my 20 seconds of beast mode will be yet, but I think it is a great challenge!

Alrighty, I read the "do it now" column on nerdfitness. I actually liked the site, and the attitude presented in it. The article did motivate me to do a work side-project that I have been putting off all morning... I'm neck-deep in a much bigger project, and need to get this little one done so I can quit thinking about it when I have a more important project to focus on.

Ginger - You pulled your weight plenty!! I feel bad since I was sick for the first 2 weeks of the month!! But, this is life, isn't it?? This is why we are doing this as a team - we all help each other to reach the common goals!!

As far as clean eating goes - I know I could never do it. BUT, I am trying to eat fewer processed foods. Since Scott and I got together, I would say that was something that happened anyway because of him always cooking dinner (REAL food, not Pasta Roni and Hamburger Helper). But yes, I eat bread, gronola bars, instant oatmeal, and I love Laughing Cow Cheese and crackers. It sure would take a ton of planning and thinking ahead to eat clean - I'm okay with just being conscious of how much processed foods I'm eating and trying to make better choices when I can.

GINGER - From what I see, you actually pulled more than your fair share on miles and planks! I think between the two of us, we balanced it out, since I could do a bit more of the push-ups and squats.

Wow, you ladies really have some impressive numbers for February - nice job! I should apologize, I'm clearly not pulling my weight. I promise that I'll regroup for March and try to contribute more to the team. Unfortunately, I'm spending the first week of the month in our MA office, so I'll be looking to challenge myself to eat healthy and stay active in spite of travelling.

In the meantime, Kim, I wanted to respond to your challenge. I read "7 'Healthy' Foods That Actually Suck" on nerdfitness.com. While I try and eat fairly cleanly I'm definitely guilty of eating more processed foods than I should (granola bars, cereals, protein bars, white flour, etc). While I don't see me converting to a fully 'clean' diet, I would like to do better so I'm always intrigued to read articles about healthy eating. The 7 foods referenced in the article are: VitaminWater and Gatorade (yay, I don't drink either of these!); "whole grain" bagels, muffins, and cereal (I love me some Kashi cereal! and eat an occasional bagel); granola bars (again, I definitely enjoy Kashi or Nature's Path granola bars); "low fat" and "no sugar added" labels (this isn't a major pitfall for me...I'm not easily distracted by these labels); fruit juice (yay, another victory for me...I rarely drink juice and try to opt for water most of the time); real fruit smoothies (guilty...sometime I like to get Bolthouse Farms or Naked smoothies); and salads (I rarely order a salad out unless I can control what goes in it, I would rather make my own). Let me know if anyone has questions or has any thoughts on foods to avoid, clean eating, etc - I love hearing opinions and getting fresh ideas on healthy eating!

Let me know if anyone tries out the cookie dough. I haven't yet but want to. Since I jumped in there how about if I leave an open challenge to anyone/everyone for the rest of the month to go to nerdfitness.com, read an article, and comment back here. Good stuff!

LEMON - Let us know what you think if you do make it!!

I'm still trying to think of a recipe I might have... I'm a chocolate lover, so this is tough!

Kim those both sound amazing! I actually might try the chickpea one because I have all the ingredients now. Though I'm considering substituting Peanut butter with cashew butter.

Lynsey- yes it was non-chocolate... my friends all think I'm crazy but I really only like my mothers homemade frosting, brownies, and chocolate GU when it comes to chocolate

Hey Lemon....I'm all over this. I love sweets but have been trying to have very minimal. I saw this recipe the other day though and it sounded so good. It may not be necessarily low cal, but it is healthy....made out of chick peas. The article said that she served it with graham crackers and the guests had no idea it was a healthy treat and gobbled it up:

Cookie Dough Dip
Submitted by: KIMCOLLINGS

Introduction

This dip is high in protein, gluten free, and it can even be sugar-free

Minutes to Prepare: 10
Number of Servings: 10 (146 cal per serving)

Ingredients

■1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed very well) (250g after draining)
■1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
■tiny bit over 1/8 tsp baking soda
■2 tsp pure vanilla extract
■3 T peanut butter


■up to 1/4 cup almond milk unsweetened vanilla, only if needed
■ 1/3 C brown sugar for this calorie count (see instructions for other options)
■1/3 cup chocolate chips
■2 to 3 tbsp oats (or flaxmeal) (You can omit for a thinner dip.)

See more appetizer recipes!

Tips


Directions

Add all ingredients, except chocolate chips, to a food processor (for best results, not a blender) and blend until very smooth. (Some commenters have had success with a blender, but I did not. Try that at your own risk, and know the results will be better in a high-quality food processor such as a Cuisinart.)


Sweetener Notes: to make it sugar free use 1 1/4 C pitted dates. If using sweetener use 1/4 - 2/3 cup brown sugar. Liquid sweeteners (agave, maple, etc.) are fine as well, as is evaporated cane juice. You can easily get away with less sugar– some people will be perfectly fine with just 3 tbsp for the whole recipe! And if you don’t want any sugar, be sure to check out the “no-sugar” version linked above. (You can also use stevia, if you like the taste of stevia-sweetened desserts. Try 2-3 packets of NuNaturals stevia, and add more sweetener if needed. I wouldn’t recommend serving an all-stevia version to party guests, though.)

Let’s talk dippage!

You can, of course, just eat this stuff by the spoonful, with graham crackers, apple slices, mixed in oatmeal, top pancakes.

LEMON - Just to verify, you want something non-chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth?

Sorry guys kind of dropped the ball on coming up with a challenge. I always feel like anything I come up with is corny. But I have one now, because my sweet tooth would like to be indulged, and it's for anyone who wants it. I would like someone to find a new recipe or an old favorite, and share it with the team... I know this sounds crazy but I'm not a big chocolate fan so if it's not chocolate related you get "bonus points" in my book! Also I'm just going to put my totals for the last few days all in one

I will just add - my ability to plank has skyrocketed this month. At the beginning, I could only do sets of 20 seconds each. Last night, I had a few sets with 50 seconds. So there has definitely been some improvement going on!

oooo...that would be crummy. Glad you're going to get it checked out. My mom had some foot pain and they had her do some physical therapy and it got dramatically better. I think in the mean time, your hubby should rub your feet at least twice a day though. Maybe three emoticon

It looks like everyone worked hard this weekend!!! All numbers went down except planks. Obviously, that goal was too lofty. It will be revised to be reached next month!

Everything else?? We can do it easily!!!!

Great, I got scared when I saw a pic of someone doing a plank, and it showed them on their forearms. I tried one set that way, and it was NOT a good feeling!

Also, Alicia, I always do planks with arms fully extended (in upright pushup position, essentially).

I do squats and pushups the same way do do, too!

I really hope all those planks weren't for nothing... are planks done with the arms fully extended OK? I didn't realize you were supposed to do them on your elbows!

All my my squats have been just regular bodyweight squats.

All push-ups have been modified- either on my knees on the floor, or inclined on a counter or desk.

Hello all I have completed the challenge though it took me two days more than I thought because my schedule got screwy and I ended up being out for two meals so there was no way those were clean. I had eggs for breakfast with onion and mushrooms. A salad with chicken for lunch, and cheese because the site I looked at said I could have it. And then I made curry for dinner. I just used a curry spice I have, and brown rice along with mushrooms, onion. squash. The curry was no hardship at all I've had a lot of it lately as it seems to be my healthy craving of choice. I'll have to get back to you on a challenge... need an hour or two to think of one.

Okay, so here's the breakdown! It looks like we have 5 active participants right now. There are 7 days left of the month, including today. Here is what each of us needs to do each day to reach our goals:

51 squats each day per person
24 push-ups each day per person
217sec planks each day per person (about 3.5 min)
3.65 miles each day per person

I have faith that we can reach the squats, push-ups, and miles goals!!! I know the planks are far fetched, but it gives us something to work toward!

Thanks, guys. I used to have 1000 squats as a monthly goal, which is probably why I'm decent at them, lol.

I don't think we'll get to any of the goals, but the best chance, to my mind, is to kill the squats, lol. It's going to drive me bonkers if we don't get at least one goal in.

You are SERIOUSLY rocking the squats, Alicia! I too am VERY sore and most of it is from the squats! I have slowed down some since I'm hurting so bad, but they were part of my workout today so I got some in! I have never done single leg squats, but that was what the program had me doing today!! TOUGH STUFF!

I have to admit that I am starting to get really sore. I'm trying to shove as much into the last few days of February as I can, but I am not in the kind of shape the rest of you are in. I'm trying to at least get us to reach the squats goal, since those are the only one of the exercises that I'm actually good at!

Hi, everyone. Since Lemonlyman confirmed that she's taking on the challenge and I'm on my way out of town for the weekend, I'll be ducking out of the challenge but will be available next week if I'm tagged.

Don't push yourself too hard, Lynsey!

Okay, so here's the breakdown! It looks like we have 5 active participants right now. There are 8 days left of the month, including today. Here is what each of us needs to do each day to reach our goals:

51 squats each day per person
25 push-ups each day per person
202sec planks each day per person (just over 3 min)
3.533 miles each day per person

After getting LEMONLYMAN's number added in it doesn't look so bad!! I am sooo sore today, so I'm probably not going to do any more tonight... But I finally got some mileage on the board this morning!!

Keep up the awesome work you guys, we can do this!!!
