Season 4 Challenge 5

In case you are new:

Each week we are given two challenges. These challenges will start on Sunday and go through the following Saturday.

On our designated blogging days we'll let each other know how we did with the previous weeks 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.
Since I'm a day late in posting this I decided to choose challenges that don't have to be done everyday

This week's challenges:

Physical: Sweat more! This week find at least three 20 minute windows in which you can sweat more. Whether it's picking up the pace as you shop, dancing in the kitchen as you cook, or walking in place as you watch t.v.; whenever you do something physical make it count. And let us know what fun creative ways you came up with to sweat!

Emotional: As the weeks go on we need to remember why we're doing this, and we need to work on not getting discouraged. If you miss some challenges, that's okay! Just keep going. So this week do something to pamper yourself. Do something that makes you feel pretty, relaxed and happy. Whether it's taking a bath, getting your hair done or buying the outfit that makes you look good (I take no responsibility if husbands get upset with this challenge). Whatever you do make sure you appreciate it, and make sure it's something special that you don't normally do.  

AND remember our continual challenge this season is to do the Ripped in 30 DVD twice each week.

Good luck!

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...
