Hiya!

I'm adding the Spark People New You Bootcamp videos here. You'll need the same hand weights, and a stability ball for these. A great way to switch things up, bust out of a plateau, or just try something new, is to move to these videos after a month or 2 of the Swimsuit Bootcamp videos. The challenges were essentially the same, so there's nothing new there. I'll be back in a little while to finish posting the challenges to the original post on this thread.
Enjoy!

OK, the weather has gotten really cold here and even though I have been in Boston for 10 years this California girl still "Dreams of Palm Trees" and not that white stuff! It really interfers with my walking steps and I now have to do the inside stuff so it it time to get the indoor routine started. I bought a set of hand weights at the thrift store yesterday, 3, 5, 8 lbs. and I have a stability ball and some video's and these challenges! Time to get busy!!

Hiya! I went in the other night and added another 12 challenges, but it didn't save- mihgt have been the kids pulled me away, but I thought I saved it. I'm going to try again this weekend and hopefully get all of the last ones up here. If there's a limit on how big a single post can be, I might have to reply to add them, but I'll let you know!

Hey all- thanks so much for all the comments, but I want to make sure credit is given where credit is really due- Coach Nicole put together all the Day 1-7 videos workouts and the first month of challenges, then Outofcontrol and MichelleVW did the next two months of challenges. All I did was put them in one place. I'm really glad so many people are using this- makes me happy I didn't do it for just me!

I also copied and pasted this into My Fitness notes. (I have to keep copying it into each day, but I find it very helpful to have it available when I open up SP each morning.)

I have completed the first 4 days of the challenge you set up for us, Jill. I haven't done those Swimsuit Bootcamp Workout exercises since June and it felt good to get back to them. Even better, I discovered that they weren't as difficult for me as they were when I first tried them.

That's a little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! emoticon emoticon

I'm in-thanks for taking the time out to put it all on one log. I saved it too to my favorites too!!!!
I will start tonight and Day 1 & 2. I will also do the challenges for those days as well. I need something to jump start me!!!! I walk everyday (Mon-Fri) on my lunch for about 40-45 mins so that part isn't a problem it is the strengh exercises that I get lazy with. I know when I took on this challenge in May of this year it helped jump start me than and hope it will do it now. I will try to post my results.
Thanks,

The nice part about this is now anybody can start whenever they want and not have to figure out which post corresponds to the day of the challenge they are on! Just go in order (and start at the beginning when you hit the last day if you want).
