Welcome everyone to the 3,500+ calories burned challenge. This weekly challenge has been going on for over a year now and it's open to everyone! So nice to see so many new faces these last few weeks - hope it continues; people are setting higher goals and getting more calories burned!

This is a weekly challenge to meet 3,500+ calories burned. You set your own calorie goal for the week (even if it's below 3,500 - you can work your way to that goal!). Each day post the calories you burned, current total and how many you have to go. That's it, not too hard, other than push push pushing yourself to hit your goal. Everyone is such an inspiration on this challenge. Keep up the good work for the people returning and welcome to the newbies.

Make it great week everyone!!

Here's a daily update format you can use:

Weekly Goal:
Mon: calories burned (how they were burned)

Excellent challenge. I am actually shooting for getting my BMI down to less than 25% within a year. So I'm going all out by challenging myself to obtain burning 7,200 calories per week by use of the following:

I'm planning 7,200
Weekly Goal:7,200 / 7 = about 1,000 calories per day

Mon: calories burned (how they were burned) - work out for 3 to 4 hours PER DAY day and burn at least 300 calories per hour.
Tues: calories burned (how they were burned)
Wed: calories burned (how they were burned)
Thur: calories burned (how they were burned)
Fri: calories burned (how they were burned)
Sat: calories burned (how they were burned)
Sun: calories burned (how they were burned)
