My forgetfulness is messing me up. I keep forgetting about my exercises until I am already in bed.
I definitely will not be completing this week's challenge. For next week, I will have to go ahead and set a reminder on my phone!

Thanks, Minnie. Slightly better today.....will walk the stairs again today at work.

Oy. It was almost 100 degrees here in GA yesterday so anything outside is out of the question.

Yay! Well, I did Zumba last night and ended with a thrown out back. Grrrrrr...it's better this morning but dang!!! It was spasming even when I walked. Not sure how many exercises I'll be able to do.

Today, back willing, I'll climb the three flights of stairs at my office at least 3 times.

I agree with Minnie.

Bit of a health setback at the moment but hope to join the challenge later.

Hello Teammates! I'm posting next weeks MC today so that you can use the weekend to prep for it. I hope to see many more participants next week since you have plenty of notice to pick your exercises! Let's do this!!!

While sometimes it's hard to get that water in but they are so useful to us in losing the weight. I hope some of you worked yourselves into a new habit anyway! :)

Alrighty then, in keeping with the 2 Intake, 1 Exercise & 1 "Self-Esteem" MC idea, here is your "assignment" for the next week, should you choose to accept it:

Go to My Trackers (top menu) , then click on the My Fitness page and then SEARCH for Strength Training Exercises. From the drop down list choose five (5) exercises such as crunches, leg-lifts, etc. and add those to your favorites. The MC is to do those 5 exercises at least 4 of the 7 days this MC is in effect. You can change your Fitness Setup for the week on this page as well.

They usually consist of 2 reps of 12 each, so it won't take very long to do 5 of them to completion. ;) It is your choice to concentrate on your Core, Legs, Arms, or a combination. Oh, and now that you've made drinking water a habit, don't forget to drink your water while exercising!

Make sure to post your 5 choices in this Forum! Also, don't forget to get your 5 SparkPoints for each of the exercises each day you do them.

This MC starts Monday morning, July 18th, though you can feel free to pick your exercises at any time before then, if you wish and as usual, feel free to post your 5 choices any time before then too.

Hugs ya'll and GREAT luck...I know you can do it!!!

L.
