Whatever challenge type you pick, I'll join in as long as I can.
I do like the suggestion of trying a new exercise or new video once or twice each week. I tend to do the same things over and over and know that is not necessarily good; anything to help me remember to add in variety is appreciated.

I have been thinking about this *how about one new exercise a week whether it be a machine at the gym, spark exercise demo, a spark dvd, a kickboxing move ..well I think you all get the picture...time does not matter(for newbies :)just try it. *posting # of days without sugar..like candy, fancy coffees, cookies etc.... What do you think?
some of my other teams have a one fitness goal and one food/nutrition goal per week or month. i personally do a goal for cardio calories burned per week....or we could post a goal for trying a new activity each week for a month...

On another team that I am on, we are counting steps. We chose a number that we think we can reach for ourselves, and then post what we walk, and the countdown to our goal. For example, if I think I can walk 50,000 steps in a week. We copy the last posting and paste it into our reply, so that we always keep the most current numbers. Clear as mud? Just a thought.....

We would like to implement a challenge for our awesome team, so do any of you have any types of challenges in mind that everyone here could do (keep in mind many are still beginners)? Let's make this something that's definitely doable for all, but at the same time something that will truly benefit each and every one of us.
