By Sept 1 - would like to be 210 or less.

Not sure if I'm included on this challenge? I got the message but I'm so new to this board I haven't "challenged" myself to anything short of just starting this journey... but I'm more than willing to give it a shot!

Thanks! Good luck to everyone.

Here are our challenges for next week

AUGUST CHALLENGE WEEK 1
This is the week one team challenge. This should be done in addition to your normal workout routine.
This is a challenge and is not a replacement! If you need a beginner workout please contact your team
captain for ideas.

Week One Daily Exercise Challenge
Each team member that completes their daily exercise challenge receives one point, if all team
members complete each daily exercise for all 6 days the team is then awarded an additional 5 Bonus
Points.
Day 1 Exercise Challenge - 100 Jumping Jacks*(see below)
Day 2 Exercise Challenge – Walk, Run or Jog 1 Mile (extra)
Day 3 Exercise Challenge – 50 Situps or Ab Crunches*
Day 4 Exercise Challenge – 40 UP and Downs *
Day 5 Exercise Challenge – 25 Pushups *
Day 6 Exercise Challenge – 25 Squat Lunges*
Day 7 Rest! You deserve it!

If you are uncertain on how to do an exercise get with your captains as they will have a weblink to each
exercise.

Week One Weekly Team Challenge

Each team member in order to get the weekly team bonus points must all log every day and not go over
their target calories and log at least 64 oz. of water each day. If each team member does this all 6 days
your team will be awarded 5 Bonus Points.

*Feel free to do these exercises in sets if you are unable to do them all at one time. Please do your best
as you are much stronger than you believe.

Please note each week the exercises will increase in difficulty. This will push each team member.
Modifications will be provided for those who unable to complete the exercise as intended

Should we introduce ourselves? My name is Jessica and I am a 39 yr old mother of 2. I lost over 40 pounds 3 years ago very quickly using Medifast. Fast forward to today... gained it ALL back. :brokenheart So I decided I am going to do it the right way this time... with exercise and watching calories eating REAL food. I am currently full force into Turbo Jam and after a week of that i found MFP. Love the community and the information! It is FANTASTIC! Looking forward to this montly challenge! I love being accountable to others... it helps me more than you know.

Looking at the week 1 challenge...and I am beginning to suspect that Gary is some type of fitness professional! :). If it gets harder as the weeks go along, we are going to be about 5 kinds of awesome by the end of the month!
July 29, 2011 6:09 PM
Week 1 looks doable for me..with the exception of the up & downs. What are those? Also, are we logging each day on this thread or just our daily log? Sorry for all the questions. Look forward to working with you all!!!

Good luck to everyone!!!!

If I am not mistaken, up and down are the exercice you lay down on the floor on your belly then get up, then go back on your belly. I say log on this tread everyday. We have points for daily goals and also weekly goals. I will explain the point system a bit later.

This will be fun

Hi Jessica!
My name is Kim and I am very excited about this challenge as well. I am looking to "stay on track.". I am 35, there is a strong history of diabetes in my family...I do not have diabetes and I would like to keep it that way! I am looking to "lock in" healthy habits with this challenge and keep them going for a lifetime.

Cheers,
Kim

Hey guys. I'm Jessica and I'm 19. This is my first challenge and I'm really pumped because by the end of this challenge, I'll be back at school and I want to be fit when I go back. I play rugby so this will be a great way to stay motivated! Should we make our food diaries public because I'm not sure how to post it on this forum?
July 29, 2011 8:43 PM
Hi Jessica!

Jen here. I'll be 28 9/19. I really want to loose 20lbs by my birthday. I've already lost 6, so I'm going to work hard on getting those extra 14;bs off! I got married 10-10-10 to the love of my love and certainly a gift from the Lord. we're looking to start making a family next year. So, I need to get MOVIN' on this weight loss stuff so I don't use the "eating for two" excuse and gain more weight. I'm so excited to be here and to meet you all! Lets do this!!
