As a family, we spend Sunday night at dinner discussing the week revealing our:
1. Three goals for the week
2. Three wishes for the week
3. What worries or challenges us

It helps me to hear what my husband and daughter are thinking, and it also forces me to be less self-absorbed.

My challenge is to set a 5 minute work out for myself. Bends, leg lifts and my wall push ups. Everyweek to extend the time.

Okay, I think I understand I choose my own 5 minute challenge. Today I will do the 5 minute abs on the ball. It is killer for me and I can't do it until I get home tonight at 9:30.
Tomorrow the challenge will be to do it before I leave the house at 7:45am.

Hi Leni.. and everyone. I havnt been posting, but do check out the daily challenges. The other threads got to be too confusing to sort thru. I tend to do a week of things on same day. Dont have time to check everyday, but will make a point to huddle daily anyway. Will help with some of the goals too.

Hey, Shelly. Got your challenge right after I did 30 min on my Gazelle. Worked great right after my stretching. Good for my circulation, but you were very easy on that one. Keep them coming.

READY SET GO - Well, I'm disabled and on a walker so I will do the challenge minus the jumps - lol - would be dangerous to me or anyone around me. However, I will go up on my toes instead.

I think it should be a new challenge everyday that everyone does and not left up to one person challenging one person and then a different thing for someone else. I can already see that people lost interest in that way and didn't keep it going.
