This is my last day to log crunches for awhile -
Tomorrow morning my daughter will have a new baby - my second grandson!
YAY God! Now my life gets really busy! AND all the exercising will pay off with extra energy to keep up with an infant.

Now .... the CRUNCH total: TTD 800 crunches for January. (not counting any I do at the hospital while I am waiting). Not too bad for a STLGRANMA.

Thanks for the Challenge and God Bless!

Search me, O Lord, and keep me in Your everlasting way.

EYV - Life is always too busy! Make your priority list and taking care of yourself should be at the top. How can you do anything else if you are in poor condition? I am a morning person and I try to exercise first thing in the morning. I have a calendar that I log my weight and exercise on so that helps me stay focused and motivated. Start one day at a time and if you miss a day -- no big deal, do it the next. Just don't give up ! ! !

Search me, O Lord, and keep me in Your everlasting way.

You all deserve a trophy!

*sigh* I completely dropped the ball. I hadn't started all week! Today I finally stopped what I was doing and did 20. Argh, I've been busy, but I *need* to make time to take care of myself!

WE LOVE CRUNCHES, YES WE DO!
I haven't been faithful to every day, but I haven't given up ! ! ! Did weigh in and measurements today ---- YAY! Since beginning of January, I lost 2 pounds (finally), and 2 inches in my waist and 1.5 inches in hips! Halleluia! Only 9 more pounds to GOAL! Pretty soon, I'll be a strong and slim as OJ! emoticon

YAY! Glad you're with us on this, and that's excellent news about your Bible class!

I need to post my totals still...I've been crunching faithfully, pretty much every day.

Good job team! You continue to be an inspiration to me. :)

I will start tomorrow. I have stomach flab so this will be good. My knee injury is finally healing so I need to get back in shape.

In other news I am starting a bible class at the Christian University I am attending and I'm already leaning a lot. Whoo hoo!

Grace and Peace,

Let's go TEAM! I'm in -- I'm also in the New Boot Camp! Go! Granny! Go! 2009 will be the best year ever!

I'm also beginning a devotional study on the Names of God, a book by Kay Arthur called LORD, I Want to Know You. When we know more of who He is, we can more fully trust HIM!

The vision is:

"A new beginning --
An avenue of ministry --
A sense of doing something that has eternal value."

Drum roll, please.

I did 30 crunches today. 3 sets of 10. 30! Due to knee issues, I did them in my bed (up and down off the floor problematic at the moment).

I would not have tried it without the challenge. Thanks OJ2!

Well, so far I've completed 30 today. Will try to get some more in before bed.

As for the DVD Linda, I don't know. Guess you should try to count the crunches as you do the workout & tally them at the end? That could be a really good workout!

Edited note: I did 90 Bicycle crunches & 30 Clamshell crunches. Total today: 120

Ha ha, Di, you're so funny! Sounds GREAT!

There are LOTS of different crunch styles (Bicycle crunches, Reverse crunches, etc) so you won't get bored doing the same kind every day! Mix it up, and have fun!!

Okay - the last Crunch I did had a Captain in front of it and was YEARS ago. I will commit to 5 crunches a day and work up from there. I will post my progress.

Hi Team!

Just thought I'd throw out the idea of a Crunch Challenge for January. I've been really slacking the past several weeks, so I thought this might be a good way to get going again.

The idea would be to do at least 30 crunches per day & post our totals here.

What do you think? You in??

Wishing you a fant-AB-ulous 2009!!
OJ/KB
