I walk everyday but, now I want to add some strength and flexibility to my daily activities. Mon, 21 Sep 2020 21:45:29 EST Another week down! I finished week 3 a couple days behind schedule, but I'm reminding myself that I don't need to be perfect to move ahead! Wed, 26 Aug 2020 21:52:39 EST Week 2 Summary And I'm done with Week 2! I did all of Coach Nicole's videos and I also tried her 10-minute Jump Start Cardio Workout video twice this week. It was a bit high impact for me, but I managed to modify and get through it. Other cardio workouts included walk/jog intervals (C25K training) and family hikes. I'm feeling good! Mon, 17 Aug 2020 08:55:20 EST Week 1 Summary! I just finished week 1 and it feels great to be back to exercising after taking a month off to battle Lyme disease! I did a bootcamp video every day this in addition to five cardio sessions. Cardio included walk/jog intervals (C25K training) and cardio dance. This week I did a cardio dance to music by Queen and one to High School Musical songs. I also did some Disney yoga one day. Gotta keep this up!!! Sun, 9 Aug 2020 13:09:19 EST Week 1 goal To resume strength training Thu, 16 Jul 2020 08:39:50 EST Week 2 Complete! I'm done with week 2!

I'm proud to have completed week 1 of this challenge! The videos are short but they're HARD! I've had to do some of the modifications, but I've stayed strong. Cardio workouts this week included hiking, walk/jog intervals (C25K training), Disney cardio dance, and kayaking. I'm ready for Week 2! Sun, 28 Jun 2020 09:02:21 EST Week 3 I am getting used to spending the few minutes each day to benefit my strength. How did I get to a point of such neglect, having once been a person who'd spend 2+hours at the gym? don' even care about progress doing the workouts yet, just checking in is a big plus Wed, 17 Jun 2020 10:26:30 EST Day 1~~ 4/17 Friday Hey everyone! have started this challenge numerous times!

Sun, 29 Mar 2020 05:14:04 EST Trying to lose 40 at 41 Hello everyone, I am excited to be using sparkpeople premium and have been a fan of sparkpeople for years and years, but life happens, my program gathered dust, I got distracted, and so I'm back here to try and lose 40 lbs again because this site always works for me. <BR> <BR> Glad to meet you all and look forward to completing this challenge. Sat, 20 Jul 2019 13:52:21 EST Week 3 Day 15: Monday, 6/3/19 (Week 3, Day 1) <BR> <BR> 28 Day Bootcamp Video: 10 Minute Kickboxing Workout <BR> Cardio: None scheduled for today <BR> <BR> The first time I tried this workout, in the 1st week, I was only able to complete about 2/4 of it and I had to modify a lot of it. Today it was a lot easier and I was able to complete the video with only one modification. <BR> <BR> Tue, 4 Jun 2019 11:20:22 EST Message Removed Message Removed Tue, 28 May 2019 09:34:34 EST Week 2 Day 8: Monday, 5/27/19 (Week 2, Day 1) <BR> <BR> 28 day bootcamp video of the day <BR> No cardio but ended up doing a 15 minute walk away the pounds workout <BR> <BR> The video was a bit hard and I was unable to do a lot of it. I had to modify for most of it but I got through it. I did a 15 minute brisk cardio workout with walk away the pounds. <BR> <BR> <em>521</em> <em>381</em> <BR> <BR> Tue, 28 May 2019 00:24:05 EST Week 1 Day 1: Monday, 5/20/19 <BR> <BR> Did the 10 minute video and needed to modify it A LOT! Some of the exercises were a bit too advanced for me so I did some walking in place and a few different exercises I have learned through out. I was able to complete the 10 minutes and was winded but very proud of myself. Tue, 21 May 2019 11:56:07 EST Starting Over So I am starting this challenge again. I joined long ago, but I am trying to exercise more. Today I have used the elliptical from Bow Flex. I am just now getting where I can stay on the thing for more than a few steps, even at the lowest level, it is extremely hard for me and reading the comments, I guess it is for everyone, except my 9-year old grandson. He can ride like the wind, go figure. <em>198</em> . Well, I am determined to ride that thing, so here goes. Day 1--good luck all! ... Mon, 29 Apr 2019 10:21:54 EST My 28-Day goal Hello, everyone. The 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge is a terrific one. My goal, simply, is to lose extra pounds. I hope your personal challenges are having good results! Fri, 29 Mar 2019 12:57:10 EST a-z words appreciate Mon, 7 Jan 2019 17:03:49 EST A tip and maybe more comifor enjoying the holidays Don’t arrive on an empty stomach! Skipping breakfast or lunch may lead to overeating and eating more calories than if you had eaten beforehand. Have a bowl of cereal, vegetable sticks, fresh fruit, a salad, a handful of nuts, or a small sandwich before you arrive. <BR> Sun, 23 Dec 2018 19:39:34 EST Returning Hello, this will be my second time to do the Bootcamp Workout Challenge. I’m excited to get back at it. I needed a boost and this is just perfect! I recently started back at my fitness it’s been awhile. I started UJam fitness once a week too. This will be a great help to get me on track. Sun, 2 Sep 2018 16:55:45 EST I need help getting unstuck and lose weight Seems like the more I try to lose weight, the less success I have. Hopefully with some discipline, I can complete this challenge, lose a few pounds, and gain some discipline. Fri, 20 Jul 2018 22:37:58 EST looking to become more active I have just started the challenge and did day one video. I have had both knees replaced and a back injury. I have consistently been walking every day for 30 to 60 min. Sun, 8 Jul 2018 10:58:40 EST Goals! My main goal is to start "moving" again, but I am mainly looking forward to sustaining a healthy level of exercise each and every day. Sun, 3 Jun 2018 11:13:53 EST Going All In! Hi, I am excited to be going down this path. It's been a few years since I've been on Spark People but am already motivated seeing the progress that others have made here. Looking forward to building strength and fitness and yeah, eating better. :) Sun, 3 Jun 2018 11:11:12 EST Getting back on track after an injury I'm starting to get back on track after an injury to my achilles tendon a year ago. I had banged it on something hard and am just now getting comfortable taking flights of stairs and adding steps. Spark People and the trackers are great motivators for me. Just joined Premium and exploring those benefits! Sun, 3 Jun 2018 11:01:46 EST Need accountability. I am here because I want to do something for myself and be able to help make exercise more of a habit. I like how working out makes me feel but I just need help with accountability. I want to be able to keep up with my almost 8 yr old daughter and be a good role model for her and hopefully one day do Warrior Dash or the Wicked Muddy Mainer. Just got to start back somewhere. I have manage to lose 20 lbs and keep it off for a year, but I want to lose more and gain a lot more strength. Thu, 31 May 2018 21:00:45 EST Day 1 DAY 1: 283.6 Tue, 29 May 2018 19:19:25 EST Kickstart I lost 80lbs with SP 6 years ago. Now, after cancer and early menopause brought on by the radiation treatments, I have gained it all back and then some. It's time to get back to where I was, so I'm joining this challenge to give myself a kick in the pants and get me back into the groove of working out and living healthy everyday. My goal this week is just to keep up with all of the work outs and finish the weekly challenges. No excuses! No quitting! Whining is allowed, but only to myself... Tue, 29 May 2018 19:16:27 EST Introduce yourself Good morning! I'm Jessica and I just completed day 22 of the 28 day challenge. I'm excited to get back to Spark People after placing my priorities elsewhere for the last two years. Good luck and best wishes to all of you! Sun, 22 Apr 2018 11:08:29 EST Hey all, getting Fluffy Hey all, have not gained any weight, but as I say I am getting Fluffy!! So I am doing this and gonna win that Trophy!! Tue, 2 Jan 2018 11:02:01 EST Hello! Ready to get started! Hi! I joined the team last week so I wouln't forget, but waited until the beginning of the week to actually start on the challenges. I'm ready now! Mon, 1 Jan 2018 02:55:15 EST Couch Potato I joined this challenge cause Im tired of being a couch potato. I want to lose at least 20 more pounds. Wed, 27 Dec 2017 12:32:35 EST Where is the list of 10 minute work out videos?! Is there a direct way to get to the 10 minute workouts? I saw it when I joined this group, but I struggle to find them every day. It is demoralizing to only find the article with 30 minute work outs after day 1. Wed, 27 Dec 2017 07:06:42 EST Goals My goals this week are to exercise and eat healthy every day as well as track my progress. Fri, 27 Oct 2017 01:08:52 EST Werk Out I hope to get back into working out more often :) Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:15:51 EST Lets Chat 2017 Started the boot camp today.

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 10:05:43 EST CRY FOR HELP It's been a minute since I posted on Spark and things are getting out of control. I gained 12 pounds on a matter of 6 months and this is a CRY FOR HELP to get back on track. This bootcamp will help me with some strength exercises. I will continue my morning jogs but need the strength. So here we go again. I can use some support this time around guys.

The 1st and 3rd weeks have taken me more than 7 days to complete. Sometimes I did more than one Bootcamp exercise in a day when I missed one and had to make it up. I don't always list all the fruits and veggies I eat when I don't have a full portion. Sun, 5 Mar 2017 23:28:20 EST My Why I am joining this challenge because I need to get back on track with regular exercise and I hope that this challenge will help to develop a habit to exercise again.

I am in an infinity loop of starting, feeling results, moving on to other activiities, loosing momentum, and returning here for motivation to get back at it! Here I am again at the start of the cycle. Thankful for this challenge to assist me in my goal of getting exercise and healthy eating back in my focus and routine. Tue, 27 Dec 2016 11:30:18 EST Goal This week I am concentrating on getting breakfast in order. I will track it as well. I am trying to maintain for the next couple of weeks through the holiday. By the first of the year I will be ready to begin in earnest. By that time, I will have both breakfast and lunch planned so that I am staying within calorie limits. I want to develop several combos so that I can easily make the right decisions.

I have been using the Sparkpeople resources for the over 100 days and I have participated in a few challenges. I am on my journey to living a healthy lifestyle. Mon, 3 Oct 2016 21:31:42 EST Challenge Goal My Challenge goal - as funny as it sounds, is to set goals every week and meet them for 4 weeks. I tend to get distracted and wander off from anything regimented. So I am not setting long term goals, other than that I will set short term goals that are achievable and trackable and then I will achieve those goals for 4 weeks. <BR> <BR> My first weeks goals are to establish the habit of doing the bootcamp videos and doing them... even if I get board, or decide I would rather do something ... Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:39:30 EST Week one Goals My week 1 goals are to: <BR> 1. Do a video every day even if it is just a short one. <BR> 2.

I am no stranger to exercise, but lately I seem to be find more excuses not to make the time to really push myself. I am hoping this challenge will help me get back into the habit. Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:28:31 EST Second time through Bootcamp My goal is to get back on track. You see I should have kept repeating the weekly workouts as my maintenance plan. Second time around has changed my focus about the need for a maintenance plan after challenges are completed. Sun, 21 Aug 2016 21:18:30 EST Goals My goals for this 4 week challenge are to 1) establish appointments for exercise and a weekly meal plan on Sundays; 2) Track exercise and Food daily; 3) Go on an eating out and evening TV hiatus; 4) Stay connected to encourage others and be encouraged. 5) Measure my the half-n-half in my coffee. <BR> <BR> I would like to lose 5-8 pounds this month, see my measurements decrease, and my productivity increase.

I also hope to lose 20 pounds by the end of the year so this will set me on the right direction. Sat, 26 Mar 2016 21:47:50 EST Week 2 Week 1 resulted in 3 lbs lost. Going into Week 2 ready for more. I made my goal of 4 days of exercise and tracking for five days. This week I am increasing time of exercise. I ended up with 137 minutes last week. This week I will go for 200. Just adding a little to each day will do it. Maybe adding an extra day this week because I am off work. <BR> Sun, 6 Mar 2016 08:49:48 EST Week 1 Although I have started this before, I am back with a renewed sense. This week I will get at least 4 days of exercise and track at least 5 out of seven days. <BR> <em>104</em> Sun, 28 Feb 2016 09:57:37 EST Excited to get started! Hello everyone!!! I am Whitney!

I could continue with that and keep doing the toning videos until I sort of max out those workouts, but I'm curious if anyone has advice on upping their fitness game post bootcamp? Tue, 4 Aug 2015 16:36:26 EST Who do I talk to about unreadable printable pages? I looked at the printable pages for days 1 & 2 week 1 workouts. There is unrelated material covering the instructions & pictures. If it makes a difference, I'm running Win 8 on my Asus desktop. Who do I talk to about this? <BR> <BR> P.S. <BR> I was able to see the instructions on the mobile page. Unfortunately it was very difficult to find the week 1 videos at all on this site. I couldn't print from my phone. Mon, 3 Aug 2015 17:19:59 EST Proving to myself...... My goal is to ultimately get healthy and enjoy being in my skin. I want to push myself to do things daily that make me uncomfortable, just to prove to myself that I can do it and it won't be the end of the world. Currently, I do not enjoy going to the gym after work, and only like to go in the morning; however, the older I get, the more I like to sleep in.

Recalled the Spark Guy saying in a coaching video that it takes a consistent 3 months of effort before this new way of thinking and behaving really pays off in a well-established habit which becomes easier and easier. For me, personally, it helps to think I just need to focus on pushing through these next 90 days and then it will get easier (and I'll be stronger). Recalling my previous gain...
