Hi, Looking forward to April's challenge. Those crunches are emoticon and keeping me limber. I have lower back problems and bad knees. But as long I keep moving I forget about all the aches and pains. Enjoy you time off from school, have some fun. Spark On! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have a two week break from school! I am ready to start clean. Try adding cardio minutes. Or add more crunch variations as MSROZZIE said, I really enjoyed and NEED those! Maybe new veggies! I am ready for whatever.

Hi! I know I dropped off logging but I have been thinking about the challenge. I know excuses are not popular but I have been working long hours and traveling. And now I am buying a new house! WooHoo.

I agree with MSROZZIE on the waist-to-hip ratio idea. I need to continue strength training exercises so that is always good as well.

I liked the strength training exercises you selected for March. Definitely more next month like those. Maybe less reps.

Keep: add extra 50 crunches or leg raises each day to weekly exercise routine
eat a new grain each week, you've never had before
have a smoothie at least once per week
increase water intake per day (water only)
have a salad with fruit at least twice per week

Take weight, BMI or waist-to-hip ratio at least once during monthly challenge.

I hope some of these ideas will be helpful for the team challenges.

Don't forget to drinks lots and lots of water too. You will feel much better now that you have the scale to weigh the foods you eat. It was an eye opener for me as well. Hang in there and do your best. Spark On! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

CTISDELL - Health is a great motivator especially as a mom. You want to be active for your kids and be a good role model. You are doing GREAT! I love my food scale and it was one of the best things I did to help me lose weight!

Keep up the good work!

These first two days are going great! I went to the calorie king website and entered my height and weight and wanted to cry :( I am "clinically" obese. Which may or may not be accurate since its just numbers, but what an eye opener. Then I decided to buy one of those food scales....Now both eyes are open. I sure was not even close on my guesses. Some over and some way under! Here is to a new journey with a different goal in mind......health!

Great job! emoticon

I didn't think I could keep up with this month's challenge, but I found SP exercises for the crunches, so when I do my strength training, I also do the various crunch exercises as well. I'm feeling much better these days, I've had a bad cold, but the extra work must be helping. Have a good week.

Good luck - Week 2.

Ctisdell- an ab video is a good idea! My P90x is in loan to my sister but I have other ab video. That will beat me trying to be motivated on my own. Thanks for mentioning your video idea.

Thanks. You're doing great too! The kiwi wasn't bad, but I don't know if I'll rush out and buy it again. I thought that I had eaten just about every fruit on earth, but I still have a few to try.

I'm a bit sore from the crunches though, but I like the challenge.

Good luck, week 2.

Food For Thought: Make God's presence your comfort food.

By the grace of God, I am somebody marvelous!

Faith is: Patting yourself on the back.

Think about who you want to become.

Overeating is Defeating!

Tone what you own!

I'm to Blessed to be Stressed!

Be true to thine own self!
-William Shakespeare-

I am in. I checked out the website and discovered I am already on track for this. I try to avoid processed food as much as I can.

Here's your monthly challenge!!! So excited for you guys to get started and GET RESULTS!!!!!!!!

Every month I'm going to create a new challenge. Each week it will consist of ONE physical aspect, ONE nutritional aspect and one bonus aspect.

Posting progress photos in group photos or private message me about them. Progress pictures keep you honest and they allow me and you to see changes you don't see in the mirror daily.

We will track points each week so update here with your point TOTALS as they will increase each week as you progress. If I don't see monthly totals then I will just assume your points to be lower.

If you win you will get a free prize from like an ebook or a cookbook and you get to pick next month's bonus challenge!

________________________________________
______________________________________

Here's your challenge for March -

1. Try a new fruit each week. Each week you go to the grocery store try a new fruit you’ve never had before. But remember, mornings are the best time to have fruit so keep it to 2 - 3 servings before the afternoon. For every week you try a new fruit you get 5 points.


2. Add an extra 300 crunch variations to your weekly routine. You can do bicycles, leg raises, or sit ups - anything!! If you do a plank, then every 10 seconds counts as 1 rep. 300 points max each week.

3. Stick to Clean Eating. If you don't know what that is I have a good guideline blog here:
http://www.thegetinshapeworkoutplan.com/
six-simple-steps-to-clean-eating/
You can also check out Tosca Reno's Clean Eating books and her site online.
You get 5 points each day, 35 points each week.


4. Take progress pics and post them on the first & last day of your challenge (front & back full length) THIS IS WHAT KEEPS YOU HONEST. (If you do not feel comfortable posting photos in a public forum consider cropping your head or send me a message and we can work out another option.)
10 points for before photos and 10 points for after.


4. Follow these 3 ST workouts, one Monday, one Wednesday and one Friday each week:
3 points for each ST session.. 9 points max each week. (demos can be found in the strength training exercises on spark!)


Circuit 1 - Three Times
Dumbbell chest flyes on ball x 12
Incline push ups x 15
One arm dumbbell rows x 10 each side
Assisted pull ups on machine *optional*

Circuit 2 - Three Times
bridge on ball x 30 second hold
forward lunges with dumbbells x 10 each leg
lying abduction x 15 each leg
lyng adduction x 15 each leg

Circuit 3 - Three Times
tricep dips x 15
