That's what I need -- a team leader who'll kick my XXXX when I need it. You're on Jenn. :)

JENN72 - HELP!! I need an exercise challenge. I can't seem to get anything in. I was getting in some exercise (to use the word lightly) as part of the challenge we just finished, but now NO MORE. Need you to make me accountable to more than myself. HELP ME PLEASE. Nothing too hard, just get me up and going. PS: I respond well to taunting.

Jenn -

It sounds like an exercise challenge is in order!

I belong to a team that is ALL about challenges and it really helps me...so let's come up with something challenging but can be met with a little sweat!!!

Change is what�s hard, but it�s change that will reveal all the wonders that life has to offer

Congratulations to the winners. That was a good challenge. it took a lot of work and I also really learned from it.
I would also be interested in an exercise challenge, cardio and strength training. I don't really have time to go out looking for unique forms of exercise although I can see that would be fun. I need to focus more on the simple strenth exercises that I know I should be doing but conveniently put off til later!!! i will look forward to what you come up with!
Again, congratulations to the winners, good job.

Exercise challenge sounds good. Keeping track of Cardio/Strength and maybe just stay within the Calorie range. Points for unique exercises sounds good but I will have to make an extra effort for that(I guess that is the point!).

I was thinking of doing an exercise challenge next. :)

I always liked having to log because I knew that was one post out of the way for the 5 I get Spark Points for each day. I don't have a problem reaching that now, but I did when I first started :)

I really enjoyed the challenge however, I have to admit, I've enjoyed not having to do the extra logging since the challenge ended. Congrats to everyone who participated!

GO TEAM!

I'd love an exercise challenge. Something that stresses variety. Maybe 5 points/day for just doing any exercise up to 6 days/week (maximum 30 points); then 30 extra points if you do 6 days of unique exercises; 25 points for 5 days of unique exercises; 20 points for 4 days of unique exercises.... This would definitely make people like me try things out of their comfort zone.

Let's emoticon !!
I enjoyed this challenge and did learn from it as well.

I think for the next challenge - something that doesn't involve SO much information... maybe fitness/cardio minutes + few nutrition things like calories and water and that's it
If i think of anything more creative will drop it by you guys but for now that's it lol

Well I must say that this was quite a surprise!! I was sure I wasn't going to lead this - I couldn't (and still can't) get my sodium down and marvelled at all of you who were able to keep the sodium (and fiber) in range.

It was a great challenge though - definitely opened my eyes to some of my "poorer" eating habits (I have to admit, I still prefer my veggies in V-8 liquid form)and going forward I am going to work to improve them.

In any case, congratulations to everyone who made the effort (especially the daily reporting part :-) and to everyone who learned something from this as I did.

Everyone!!! Ok that is really corny but seriously, everyone that participated wins. You won a better sense of where you are and where you need to go.

It was a challenge, and there was a first, second and third place. The winners win a lovely Spark Goodie Medal which I will be leaving on your pages momentarily.

So here it is...the moment you have all been waiting for (you just don't realize it).

Taking first place... Congrats goes to ALANOFLINY!

In at second, congrats go to KELLYGIRL75!

And our third place (by only a few points I may add)is JNNSALAS! Congrats!

I hope everyone had a little fun and learned a little in the process. We will be setting up a new challenge soon. If you have any ideas for a challenge, let me or CJ know.

Thanks everyone!
