Personal Challenge:

I just read up on this one at the following link and I signed up for it. It's a walking challenge and it will last for 30 days which will take us into March (March 2nd to be exact). Being that my birthday is on February 28th, I thought this would be a good personal challenge for me to achieve by the time I reach the ripe old age of 62. We'll all watch and see how I succeed at this month long challenge and see what changes will take effect in me by that time. I can't wait to see those changes take effect over my entire body!

If you'd like to join me, please feel free to do so by reading the article mentioned in this link:

www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?po
st
=step_into_shape_with_the_30day_walkR>about_challenge


If you like what you read, as I did, then please sign up as instructed and we'll be on our way to comparing notes throughout this challenge by inputting our comments and feedback into the Personal Challenge RESULTS Board throughout the duration of this challenge.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Let your first comment in the RESULTS board be that you're on board with this 30 day challenge and that you'll be accounting for your progress each and every day .... alongside me!

See ya there!

10 Minute Pilates Workout Challenge

I did a different Pilates workout on another team last week and I'm trying this one out with you guys to see which one I like better. Of course, the easier of the two will be the one I'll like more BUT is it really the better way to go? Won't know til we try. So here's the link for this week's challenge:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-
de
tail.asp?video=36


We need to do this challenge at least once a day and we'll meet our 10 minute workout minimum we need to achieve success over time, one step at a time, in little baby steps but consistently over time.

Do this workout and then please comment in our 10 Minute Pilates Workout RESULTS board for this challenge so we can all discuss our ups and downs with this challenge.

Good luck to all!

Flabby Arms ..... Goodbye Challenge!

Ok, now we're going to work on those difficult to lose flabby upper arms of ours! Workout calls for an exercise ball and dumbbells but if you don't have either of them, that's ok, cuz we can still do this exercise. You can use old bottles of water or milk for your dumbbells and fill them up with water for heavier weights. The exercise ball can be used or just lie flat on the floor and do the workout. Here's the link:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=50


Follow the instructions and report back to the Flabby Arms ..... Goodbye Challenge Results board so we can all discuss our progress on this one together.

Happy New Year people! Ok, as promised, here we go with our new beginnings and new successes and new goals and achievements!

TAKE FIVE EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY CHALLENGE

Ok, now, we all can take five minutes out of every hour of the day, can't we? Over an 8 hour period, the challenge is requiring that you take 5 minutes out of every hour to WALK. Whether it be walking in place, walking within your house from room to room, walking up and down stairs, walking as you sing, walking around your table, or walking outside if the weather permits ..... you are required to walk .... in whatever way possible for a MINIMUM OF 5 MINUTES EACH HOUR OVER AN 8 HOUR PERIOD MINIMUM.

Seems like a lot of effort? Well, I've done it and it's doesn't require any effort at all except having the discipline to watch that clock and make sure that five minutes for every hour is reserved and used to do your 5 minute walk.

If you can't do this, I need you to email me or comment within the RESULTS Board for this challenge and I'll work with you on a modification of this challenge.

So, good luck to all of you with this challenge. We'll do it for a week starting tomorrow, on Monday, like we used to do. Please remember to account for your progress by inputting your feedback into the TAKE FIVE EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY CHALLENGE RESULTS BOARD so that we can all converse with one another about our results, our accomplishments and our stumbling blocks so we can all move ahead positively with this challenge and with the many more to come in this new year.

Kudos off to all of you for getting through the old year and ringing in the new year with high hopes and positive reinforcements for your needed health and fitness goals and accomplishments.

NO CHALLENGE TIL THE FIRST OF THE NEW YEAR!

Our present challenge has ended. Hope you all did as well as I did. I lost 13# within that 3 month period of time and I am feeling better and better. I just want to keep it up and, for those of you that were actively participating in the challenge, I hope you did as well on the challenge.

But, now with the holidays just around the corner, we're going to have a break with the challenges until the first of the new year. So enjoy your time with your family and friends and be ready to come back after the first of the new year to rev up and get going on your quest to lose weight and feel better.

See you in the first of the year!

90 Day Challenge! Woo Hoo!

I thought about this challenge as I happen to be involved with something similar at the gym I've recently been going to. If I do 100 days of workout there, I get a free month of gym access. I think that's worth it, don't you??? By then, I'll be slim and trim. (hoping).

Ok, that said, here's the challenge for us for the next 90 days starting today, September 15th, and going through to December 15th (for simplicity's sake).

Here are the guidelines for this fantastic challenge. Just think of your results ..... and right before the holiday season. I love it!

OK, here goes:

1) Hold yourself ACCOUNTABLE for the next 90 days, starting today!
2) Keep track of your DAILY workouts by inputting them into SP's Fitness Tracker. Don't concern yourself with the calorie counts and/or the minutes, unless you desire to. But, DO MAKE SURE YOU DO A MINIMUM OF 10 MINUTES/DAY, or more if you wish but only if you know you won't be straining yourself!
3) Keep yourself accountable to this challenge by documenting it in the RESULTS Board for this challenge. Make your first entry there proclaiming what you are proposing to do through this challenge and, progressively, over the next 90 days, keep track of your progress there so we all can discuss and compare ours with yours.
4) Let's all start again on our SP Page with this new challenge and let's revise what we have written on our SP page to reflect what our new goals will be for the next 90 days (thus accounting for our accomplishments and achievements through this challenge).
5) Report the fact that you have changed your SP page in the RESULTS Board for this challenge and ask that the rest of us take time to re-read your page and then comment on your changes in the Comments section of your SP page.

This challenge is a bit wordy so let me know if you need clarification of it and I'll be glad to help you understand it. Don't just blow it off because you don't understand something within it. You can blame that on my writing skills. :) Let me know where you need the help and I'll gladly be there for you.

Good luck everyone. I'm looking forward to all the positive reinforcements we'll get from this challenge and I am especially looking forward to all the success stories that will evolve from following this challenge, having it end right before the holidays with YOU having made some excellent progress toward your goal(s) and successes!

Stress Relief Challenge

Good morning team! Well it's that time again for a new challenge.

I thought we could work on our stress levels this time around. Not only will this be a stress buster (reliever) but you'll find yourself feeling better about yourself all around. You'll feel lighter than you have and happier. That's the whole name of the game, right?

This time, you have a choice between two workouts that will not only reduce the stress in your life but will also lower your anxiety levels on a daily basis as you will be working on clearing your head and your mental state. Clearing the air more or less.

Here are the two workouts you can choose from. Alternate them day in and day out or go one whole week on one and do the other the following week. BUT BE CONSISTENT AND PERSISTENT with them:

1) Try your hand at a little Qi Gong:

I have found this workout to be so relaxing, that I walk away from it feeling like a totally different person. It will take time to become comfortable with the moves but allow yourself to RELAX and FEEL the moves, that's the important part of this routine.

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-
de
tail.asp?video=30


2) 10 Minute Yoga Workout:

This routine may be a bit too much for some of you but do what you can and hold yourself accountable to getting through the routine every day. Make a commitment to improve on this routine as the days go by. Do what you can. Don't overdo it. If your body doesn't move that way (especially if this is brand new to you), then only move as far as can, but push yourself out of that comfort zone so as to have a good workout. Day in and day out, you'll see yourself getting stronger and being able to stretch or straighten just a bit more than the day before. Don't give up. This routine will improve your flexibilty and movement and, over time, you will be back moving in ways you never thought you could. Just take it easy. If your body is not moving the way the video shows, just do what you can. DON'T GIVE UP. It's only ten minutes every day and that means ten minutes of consistent improvement over time, right?

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-
de
tail.asp?video=31


So give it a whirl with me and let's report back to the RESULTS board to let the rest of our team know of our improvements.

GETTING TO KNOW YOU CHALLENGE!

What a better time to do this challenge when in the midst of partying and being with family and friends.

We are going to take the time to get to know each other on this team better. The challenge is to make a point of doing one of two things DAILY as follows:

1) Check out fellow team mate's spark page and take a few minutes to write a comment on their page. Then that team mate is to read what they have written on their page and reciprocate by checking out their page and noting a comment on their page

OR

2) Make a point of writing something on the main team page's "Post To Team Wall" posting area (I believe that this is formerly the "huddle" activity) DAILY and without fail.

The choice is yours but you must do it EVERY DAY and then you need to go to the "Getting To Know You Challenge RESULTS" board and hold yourself accountable to this challenge by noting it there.

Just a way of getting to know one another here and get the participation up in the team itself. Remember, we are all here for each other and the only way that can happen is if we all make a conscious effort to stay active in our communications with one another.

Who knows? You might even earn a goodie each and every time. Depends on how the team leader feels about the responses. :)

Challenge Continued!

Yes, instead of doing a new challenge, we're going to continue on with our dancing challenge. Only this time we're going to be a bit more consistent and stick with one of the dance routines given in the last challenge. We'll do the dance routine of our choice for the entire challenge this time, day in and day out, and report in to the RESULTS board as to our completion of this challenge.

Then the following week, we'll graduate up to one of the other two dance routines remaining. We'll work this one for the second week from start to finish and will move on to the third dance routine the following week (third week), completing it each and every day til the third week is completed, reporting in faithfully to the RESULTS board each and every day, each and every week.

Enjoy them people. And, please feel free to talk on our daily board that appears as you enter into our team area and let the rest of us know what's going on in your life!

Let's go big team. Let's SUCCEED with our desires and goals of the weight loss we're looking for!

Let's Dance! Challenge

Ok, here is the challenge I wanted to put out there for all of you last week but I got buried in work. I know my team mates understand so let's look at it as just my way of getting you excited about the new challenge, without giving you the challenge. hahahaha! :)

Ok, as I mentioned earlier today, this challenge will have three different variations to it. We are going to utilize the fun we all have when we dance. That always makes us feel good after having done it a couple of times. After all, what do we do when the weekends come? We go out and party, right? Now I don't mean party per se but I do mean we have a good time and enjoy our weekends. So let's just do what we do over the weekends throughout the week with this challenge. This is a fun one and boy do you feel good afterwards!

There are three levels of dancing here so I want you to pick the one that is closest to your pace ..... TO START WITH! hahahaha emoticon

Now there's a method to my madness! You start out with the one you know you can handle and work at it til you know you've accomplished it and can move on to the next tier in this challenge with the second dance link mentioned here. Do the same thing, work it and when you feel comfortable with it, move on to the third one. So this challenge is somewhat of a progressive challenge.

But if you want to stay with one of the three throughout the challenge, that's ok too. But don't forget the other two for a future time when you need a little bit more of a challenge to tackle and accomplish. Look at it this way. Moving on to a more difficult routine will only help you with your weight loss by helping you drop that weight even more quickly.

BUT PLEASE .... AND THIS IS A BIG, VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE!

DO NOT DO MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE. WORKING OUT AND MORE STRENUOUSLY WILL HAPPEN .... THE TIME IS RIGHT.

If you really like this challenge and want to do all three, expand this challenge out over more time and work into the more strenuous routines a little at a time. Remember, the trick to losing weight is to take it slow but take it consistently. Ten minutes minimum per day consistently over time will drop that weight off of you for good.

Ok, that all being said, here are the links for the three different dance routines listed in no particular order. Pick and choose the one you want to start with and which ones you want to progressively move on to.

Beginners Latin Aerobics: youtu.be/1608dNM4eAI (I love this one cuz I can do it anywhere I am)

Bollywood Cardio Workout: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-
de
tail.asp?video=19


Zumba Basic: youtu.be/pvbn3V-Ptoc (I fell in love with this one when I didn't even know what zumba was. Now, I'm addicted!)

Don't give up just because they appear to be too hard for you. Do what you can and, over time, you'll find yourself stronger having built up your endurance to finish the routine.

And, as usual, come back to the RESULTS board and talk about your successes or any stumbling blocks you may have encountered. Together, we'll get through it all TOGETHER. But I need your input in order to be there for you so please remember to write down your thoughts on the RESULTS board so we can all compare our progress with yours!

Have fun everybody. I know you will. I found that when I dance like this, it doesn't really feel like exercise so I want to do it more and more but I have to be careful to limit my workout times til I know I'm strong enough to do more and you should do the same!

CORE EXERCISE ROUTINE CHALLENGE

Ok, I know this routine has been around for awhile but I just came across it today and reviewed it and worked it out. It's a great core workout and it also has some stretching and strengthening. It's a 30 minute workout but it goes fast.

Another great way to get back into working out for those of us that haven't been diligent about our efforts. And, it's a great way to do a daily workout for those of us that have tried all sorts of different plans. This will give you some stability in having a workout routine you can do 3x a week and have your workouts done for the week. For those of you that are able and want to do more, feel free to do for more days of the week but remember, you need at least one day off and preferably every other day so you allow your muscles to relax inbetween workouts.

Here is the link to the routine we'll be doing in this challenge:

www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?po
st
=a_cardio_workout_that_anyone_can_do


What's really great and appropro to this workout is that they actually have their dogs (their babies) in the video with them trying to get in on the act. Watch it and see for yourself.

So then report back to the RESULTS board with your successes so that we can all root you on to further victories and successes.

Same Thing .... Different Time!

Ok, we're going to repeat our last challenge and I've listed it here again for all to see. It worked for me and I hope it worked for you! So we'll be even more toned up and tightened this time. Think of how we're all going to continue to lose those flabby underarm areas we've all created and replace them with firm, toned up, tight and strong upper arms.

Upper Body Strengthening Challenge

Ok, now it's time to start strengthening ourselves by doing some wonderful stretching exercises.

1) Alternating Dumbbell Biceps Curls
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=69
2) Dumbbell Lateral Raises
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=74
3) Dumbbell Shrugs

es
.asp?exercise=43
4) Dumbbell Wrist Curls
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=157
5) Seated Dumbbell Triceps Extensions
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=158

The instructions for each of these can be found on the links included above. You are to start out with a minimum of 3 repetitions/alternating arm which will be one complete set and work up to 5 repetitions/alternating arm and then up to 10 repetitions/alternating arm for each and every exercise. Continue to increase the repetitions if you wish. Track your results in the SP trackers for the day and report in to our RESULTS board and let the rest of us know your results, your successes and your achievements! Woo Hoo.

It's time to get our arms strong again by strengthening them. My hubby has even said today that he realizes that he needs to exercise and he's going to do these with me as well. Woo Hoo! Nothing like getting the family involved in this.

So let's go big team, let's go. I want to see results from this challenge and I want to be reading all about your successes, achievements and how your disposition has changed just by doing these!

LOVE YOUR PET CHALLENGE

Ok, I'm a little late in getting this out to you but I was working late last night (3am) and got a late start today.

So here we go. This challenge is all about including your pet with you during your challenge.

Everytime you do a "routine" (one set of exercises, ie: one set of crunches), you need to go to your pet and either love them, pet them, talk to them, or hug them to let them know that you have the same "unconditional" love for them as they do for you.

Do as many routines or workouts as you want to .... just make sure you do at least one/day for at least 10 minutes/day.

Go to your SP tracking and log it in as your day's workout and then report back to the RESULTS page for this challenge to let the rest of us know what you did, how you felt, and how your pet reacted.

TAKE FIVE CHALLENGE

I don't know if I've done this challenge with this team or not but it's really a fun one. And, with the 4th of July holiday just around the corner, this is the type of challenge we can still do, regardless of our social commitments.

Ok, here goes:

EVERY HOUR, for FIVE MINUTES MINIMUM, you need to break away from what you're doing, WHATEVER IT MAY BE, and get yourself up, up and away ....... walking for that 5 minute minimum.

That's it! That's all there is to this challenge. But, boy, will you feel gooooood and start looking so goooooood. Really gets the blood moving.

So enjoy this one, enjoy your fourth of July and report your results in the RESULTS board for this challenge.

WATCH THOSE COMMERCIALS CHALLENGE!

Ok, it's that time again for a challenge. Hope you've all have a nice rest because now we are going to get serious about losing that ugly fat and weight we want to get rid of.

We are going to use the commercials from our favorite tv shows to exercise with. Haha! I've done this one and it's really a fun way to get your exercise in for the day not to mention a great way to jumpstart a stale or non-existent workout routine. No time like the present, right? Well, here we go!

For every commercial in either a ONE HOUR show or (2) 1/2 HOUR SHOWS in a television show you like watching, I want you to get up and workout during the commercial breaks. We're working on strengthening and I want you to do the following exercises. ONE exercise per commercial, from the moment it begins all the way through to the end of that commercial.

FIRST COMMERCIAL BREAK: I want you to do the wall pushups. Here is the link to the workout:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=107


SECOND COMMERCIAL BREAK: I want you to do the dumbbell side bends. If you do not have dumbbells, use bottles of water as your weight. Here is the link to the workout:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis

PHASE 2 CHALLENGE:

Ok, now that we've got our blood moving better (from the jump roping), we're going to move ahead with another activity that help jumpstart us all and get us back into the swing of things, something needed from that nasty winter we had.

1) Take a ten minute walk outside with your "baby" (your pet). While you're walking, just take in the sites. Walking outside can include going to the malls or the stores and SHOP! You could even get your ten minute walk in by walking around the parking lot trying to find your car! emoticon

2) I know some of you can't do the physical walking so just walk in place at home for the allotted 10 minutes or play with your pet for a minimum of 10 minutes but that play time has to be comparable to what a walk would be doing for you.

3) Then report back to the RESULTS board for this challenge and report in so that the rest of us can root you on to ANOTHER VICTORY in your walk towards a successful achievement of your desired goals.

Increasing Our Heart Rate Challenge:

Ok, people, let's make CatLady proud!!!!

Let's get started with a new challenge. Let's JUMP ROPE our way to health! If you do good on this one, we'll then ease on up and have a "Walk Your Pet" Challenge!!!

This is an excellent 10 minute routine that'll get your pulse and your heart going and it's soooooooooo easy! You don't even need a jump rope. You can do the routine without a jump rope! Isn't that great?????

Ok, here's the link:

so, let's make CatLady proud of us! :) This will start tomorrow on Monday and go for at least a week. Then, depending on how you feel about it, we'll determine what will be next.

Please report back to the Increasing Our Heart Rate Challenge RESULTS Board with your feedback and comments.
