Hi Wendy,
I use to live in Md. I lived in the Western Panhandle. I lived in Cumberland. Where do you live?

Dawn,
Where in Upstate NY do you live? I was born near the caskills. I moved in 1999 to Virginia than to WV in 2001. Now I'm in MD-near the Chesapeake Bay. Nice to get to know you.

Great idea. I will be on and off a little this week. But should be back on more regularly after the wedding next weekend. Pray for nice weather in upstate New York next Saturday for an outside wedding.

After my weekend I am so far behind. I got back yesterday when the new challenge started but havent had a chance to get started on the new month. I did day 1 yesterday but not with much intensity as I had done it. I didnt do much of any cardio. I started that again today. As for todays challenge for making out a plan. Its to walk daily as much as I can but I cant write it down, I never find it once its written lol

HUGS

Love the idea! I think it's so wonderful that so many people are staying on to continue! I think it's been a lot of fun as long as it has been quite easy to get that 10 minutes of Nicole's videos in daily. Doing this bootcamp has definately made a change in my body.

I wish everyone all the very best in part 2 of Bootcamp!

That is a great idea for those of us just starting. Besides we Canadians didn't qualify for prizes anyway. We joined strickly for health reasons, and the extra motivation. I think I'm going to start taking my workouts outdoors. It is finally beautiful out there.

Great idea, Michelle. I haven't stopped doing the challenge. I found that it is very motivational and I have lost mega inches already. With that accomplished, there is no way I am going to stop!!!

The official contest is over, but it was so much fun to have prizes to look forward to. I thought I would do something similar with Spark Goodies. I will be looking around the team and awarding some virtual prizes. There are no rules and you don't have to do anything special to earn a prize. Some may be random and some may be for special accomplishments or motivation.
