Weekly Challenge #4

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: The Day of Reckoning!

The Holidays are about to get into full force, so before it gets too crazy and too hard to find time, we are going to do the workout/exercise you have been dreading. Have a DVD you have been ignoring? This week you are going to bust it out. Have you been avoiding a class or a piece of equipment at the gym? Now is the time to get in there and do it! Try 'it' (whatever your 'it' is) in place of one of your normal workouts or do it in addition but don't skimp on your regular routine just because you are adding something new!

Emotional Challenge: Listen and Believe!

You are awesome but sometimes it is hard to feel that way, so this week ask three different people to tell you three things they like about you! Then you need to believe it, the challenge is not to just hear it and move on but to really listen and let it boost your self confidence!

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...
