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:

Mon: calories burned (how they were burned)

If you break it up a day, it would be 500, i on the other hand sometime do 3,500 and some time less, you start where you want, no one minds, its just a place to be accountable for your exercise. Some people, walk, jog, dance, elliptical, cycle, wii fit, lift weights, play tennis, walk @ the mall what ever gets you moving and burning cal's. Best of luck!
