Weekly Challenge #10

Oh that's right, who's on time this week?

In case you are new:

Each week we are given two challenges. These challenges will start on Sunday (usually) and go through the following Saturday. (click here to learn more about our weekly challenges)

At the end of the week, we will each write a post explaining our experiences with the challenges.

BE HONEST. If you failed the challenge, tell us why. If you rocked it, tell us how. Most importantly, tell us how you feel about it.

This week's challenges

Physical Challenge: 30 Day shred
All of us are doing it. But this week? We are going to do it 3 times. Intense? Very. But also effective.

Before you start plotting my death, give it a try. And remember that I didn't actually come up with this one.

Self Esteem Challenge: Compliments

This week we are going to try and appreciate the small and unique things about ourselves, by making sure to notice similar things in the people around us.

Open your eyes, and take a look at the people you see every day. Sometimes you stop noticing them when you see them all the time. But what makes them special, unique, and beautiful?

And why aren't you telling them about it?

When you notice something you admire, let the person know. Sincere compliments can make a person's day. By noticing things in others, and letting them know, maybe we will start seeing the beauty in ourselves a little bit more.

I hesitate to give a number, but try to give out at least 10 sincere compliments this week. And then come on back here, and let us know what you found beautiful.

About Annie

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

Heléna, age 26

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
