Ya I am. I did day one today and it was a great work out in the middle of my work day! I might do it again if I have another brain meltdown like I was having earlier! I hate end of the year books!

Morning All! Just wanted to pop in and say hi from Ft. Morgan. It's cold here today so I've already run all the errands and have the car back in the garage. The rest of the day is DVD heaven. LOL. Have a great one!

Just so you all know, Walmart has the Biggest Loser boot camp, yoga, power sculpt, and cardio max and Jillian's 30 day shred for $9.00 which is the best price I have seen anywhere.
I have only done level one of the bootcamp but I like it. I think it will be something I do a few times a week. I definitely felt it this morning, working those muscles that I have not worked in a while.
I have done level 1 of the shred and found that I need to stretch more than she does, especially my calves. Otherwise I like that one too, but it is tough!

Good evening! I went snowboarding for the first time ever and I think I'll stick to skiing! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but it was a lot of fun. We were going to go to WinterPark, but decided to go to Eldora. They have a learn to board package for just $99 and that includes equipment, lift ticket and lesson. We couldn't have picked a better day to go, it was great! Burned some major calories!

Happy New Year Colorado! I'm glad that no one in Aspen was hurt except the poor man with the mental problems. Too bad he wasn't getting the help he so obviously has needed for years.

Hi LadyValk!
I was noticing your avatar, how long have you been riding? I ride a VTX1300 myself, can't wait for winter to get over so I can start riding more. I am a year round rider, but the roads do have to be clear and my street just finally got the ice melted off of it.

Good afternoon!
I just finished my workout for the day. I got the Biggest Loser Bootcamp workout DVD for Christmas and I did level 1 for the first time too. I used light weights since I had not done it before. I think the next time I will use heavier weights so I can challenge myself. The only part I don't like are the pushups. I have a hard time doing them but am working on getting stronger!

I hope you all have a great day! Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Good morning everyone, reading your posts keeps me informed and many of you put a smile on my face, thank you.

Lets impact someones life that we deal with today by making them smile, very heart warming.

Glad things were not worse in Aspen, some people are just so unhappy with themselves. The economy is affecting so many in bad ways, all we can do is pray.

Have a wonderful day Sparking!

Oh there was some guy who made some bombs with gasoline and cell phones and left them at a couple of the banks with demands for money. They found the guy's body this morning, apparently he drove himself out by Independence Pass and shot himself.

They closed down most of Aspen (16 blocks)and canceled the fireworks display... guess it's planned for tonight but we aren't going!

I got in my workout today. I walked to the store, which is over a mile each way, and carried a bag of groceries home which was about 20 pounds. It helped make the walk more intense! Could have lived without the wind again! It is making me and my allergies crazy!

Hello everyone. I just joined so I haven't read all of the posts yet, and it looks like I inadvertently signed up for about 12 message boards so I'll have to get that down to 2 or 3. I'd like to participate in the Colorado challenge, though, so can someone point me to where I can read about it? Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Yay Kat, thanks for tracking all that you can! =)
I agree, I struggle more with the F&V's too. Some days are better than others. The water can be more challenging in the winter, and I've been kind of struggling with all of it the past week or so. I need to get it together lol.

Shari, SP has added a population multiplier that is supposed to compensate smaller cities and it's based on NY having the biggest population. Not sure exactly how that affects the state numbers though. When you click on see the 50 state leaderboard from our main page, then click on see SparkPoints State leaderboards, then it shows Colorado in 22nd place. I guess that might be without using the multiplier???

I know that Denver is ranked #4 in the Spark America city ranking. Not too bad there!

Paula, Whenever you're ready lady, you can hop on in and lead a challenge. Kitt is right, she is one of our very own SP success stories!

Here is a clarification on what exactly counts towards the fitness minutes. I copied and pasted the following: SparkPeople members can participate in the challenge simply by logging their fitness minutes on the site using our normal fitness trackers (calories burned tracker, strength tracker, and Quick Track). Your fitness minutes will go towards the overall SparkAmerica total minutes and also towards the total for your local city, state and country.

Sorry for the long post y'all. =)

Hi everyone!
I hope no one blew away last night! I hardly slept because it was so windy here! Fortunately we just lost a few shingles, no big damage!
As far as working out goes I shoot for 300 minutes a week. I have not done as well the last few weeks because of the holidays but I will be back on track after the new year.
I personally need to work on my fruits/veggies intake. I do a bad job at getting nearly enough. I am okay on water though, even though it is easier to do when it is warm out!
Oh, another thought, if we track things like shoveling snow in our cardio we can boost up the number for Colorado! I don't usually count that for my cardio, but it is in the tracker!
Have a great day everyone! I am off to workout!

I think it's true we need more people to do my exercise. I get my 120 nearly every day and I'm here with ya.

Paula you can do it, it's hard work but it can be done...

Have a healthy day.

Hi Tonya!
Thanks for the encouragement and support! I'm sure I will be chomping at the bit to lead a challenge in the near future. At this very moment in time, I must stay focused on me. I've go to get out of the 300s. That is my challenge. It hurts to exercise right now. I am determined to see it (weight loss) through the pain without injury.

Until then...

I like all the ideas posted earlier for challenges. The only problem that I see though is the getting CO in the top 10 on the leader boards- I took a quick look at it and it seems that the states leading have way more participating residents than we do?

We may have to really spread the Spark to gain that much ground, otherwise we are in for very long, very constant workouts... emoticon I have signed up for the 20 minutes every day goal/challenge to get myself back on track after a lousy holiday season in regards to scheduled exercise though- every little bit helps, ya know?

Hi Paula! Those are some great ideas! You should post them in the Challenges Forum and see if we can't gett the team to give their input too. Would you be willing to lead any challenges? If so, I started a thread called: Are you willing to...

I agree, we should be in the top 10! Everyone needs to be sure to log their fitness minutes. I believe it is based on just cardio minutes, but I wish they'd include strength too. So for us to move up in ranks, log your cardio minutes! Browse through the cardio database, you'd be surprised at what counts as cardio.

Thanks again Paula, you rock!

Dee, wtg on your exercise! I get shin splints, so I totally feel your pain.

I need to get back on track, I've been going over my calorie range and need to put an end to that!!!

Hope you all have a healthy, low stress day!

Hi SKISNCO! I guess I'm on a roll tonight. I just thought of another challenge idea. We could challenge ourselves to increase Colorado's ranking from 19th to how about 15th in January? Watch the number of minutes we are tracking daily and how much we need to increase per day to move up the ranks.

Then maybe in February we could be in the top 10. That's where I'm thinking Colorado should be. At least somewhere in the top 10.

Anyone? Anyone? emoticon

I saw you are looking for ideas for challenges. Has anyone suggested the local Colorado teams challenge each other to rack up the most minutes in a week.

This would give us 4 challenges per month.

Are the Spark America minutes all minutes aerobic and strength? if yes, we could do

Week #1 challenge most aerobic minutes
Week #2 challenge most strength minutes
Week #3 challenge most combined minutes
Week #4 challenge most crazy minutes bonus points for the longest durations, etc.

There's my two cents.

I just looked at the leader board, Colorado #19.??

I thought we were a healthy and fitness crazy state?

What's up Colorado?

Happy Monday everyone.

I went to the gym Saturday and Sunday and walked 3.3+ miles in 60 minutes. I feel better but my shins hurt.

Thanks Char, hope you had a wonderful Sunday as well!

Kitt, it is always good to see you. You are looking fabulous! If I lived closer to Pueblo, I'd love to join in on your meet ups.

There are a few new threads up and if you have any challenge ideas, or are willing to lead a challenge stop by and let us know.

Be sure to check out www.sparkcolorado.com. There you will find links to other Colorado teams and cities. If you click on the link to the different cities, you will find resources for things to do, places to see, places to eat and shop too!

You can either type that into your address bar, or there is a link on the main page of this team. Check it out! =)
