(I'm a step on a few toes this week.. sorry Jen )

I'm going to post a weekly challenge thread with a goal for each week. So dig out your sneakers, your scale, a measuring tape and a 16-20oz water bottle!


Starts August 5th (cause it's a Monday.. and I'll be moved lol)


Name:

Amt to Lose:
-or-
Amt to Gain:

Inches to Lose:

Weekly Goal:


Any special needs/restrictions I should take into account?




I will try to post something for each fitness level... and I'll even try and throw in something for our pregos who want to stay fit and healthy through their 1st and 2nd trimesters if they wish to partake.

Also suggesting you sign up to the following websites in order of importance: I will have to find my names on them and let you know so you can find me.

sparkpeople (I will be using videos and examples from this site)
mapmywalk (walkers and runners will want this one. you can set it to private so no one but you can see your routes if you're worried about stalkers)
myfitnesspal (Good for checking calories of something)

Hey ladies, I started Insanity this week and wow, these workouts are intense. I'm in pretty good shape, but it kicks your butt. I will stop Insanity after IUI (sometime the middle of next week) and during 2 ww, but then I'll start it up again if I'm not pregnant. If anyone is interested in these workouts let me know. Good luck ladies!

Nicholle I'd be interested!! I need to do more strength training so I think that would help. How do I go about getting the DVDs? I mean are they available on Netflix or Redbox or anything like that?

I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I can't lose much or I risk being too close to underweight. I really need to put on some muscle.
