Season 4 Challenge 12

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 is our last weekly challenge! 
So lucky us, we get a physical, nutritional, and an emotional!
I'll give instructions for next week on Sunday.
This week's challenges:

Physical: Since this is our last weekly challenge in this season, we need to give our workouts all we have! We all have those times when we don't really put 100% into our workouts, maybe you could push a little harder but you don't, or maybe you are stuck in the same routine and don't really go the extra mile. This week, with whatever you do, give it your all! Don't quit, push harder, give it everything you have! You don't have to add an extra workout, just make sure whatever you are doing, you don't phone it in!

Nutritional: It's our last time to swap diets! Continue maintaining your specific diet, and in addition we will each have to follow a specified persons diet for at least four meals, preferably over the course of two days. Share at least one recipe you tried in which you incorporated the new diet.

Amber, this week you will try Annie's diet of no simple carbs
Annie, this week you will try Helena's diet of no sugar
Helena, this week you will try Chantel's diet of no dairy
Chantel, this week you will try Amber's diet of no meat

Emotional: We make fun of it, and we don't really listen, but this week when you do level 4 of Ripped in 30 on your own, really LISTEN to what Jillian says at the end. Sure, it's corny, and maybe you'll roll your eyes. But she gives some pretty good advice, and I think it would be beneficial for you to lay there, close your eyes, listen and internalize before you stretch.

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...
