Season 4 Challenge 9

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.
This week's challenges:

Physical: The end is near! (of this season I mean!) and because of that some of us have been losing motivation. So this week, do a workout that is fun. It could be dancing, hiking, swimming, extreme hula-hooping or a DVD/game that gets you moving! Whatever you do, choose something that you'll look forward to. Make working out fun at least two times this week!

Emotional: Have your significant other write you a letter about why you matter. It can be done anyway he wants (a love letter, a list, things he admires about you or finds attractive) and either save it for when you're feeling down, or read it right then! Even if the letter isn't done how you would have done it, make sure your husband feels appreciated (so he will be more likely to do things like this in the future ;-)

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...
