NEW ELLIPTICAL HOT SUMMER BODY CHALLENGE-JANUARY 2013

January 2013--we will start the SMOKIN' Hot Summer Body Challenge!:smokin:

This will be a 6-month challenge from January 4 to July 4. Our Independence Day:bigsmile:

The challenge is this--<keeping it super simple> How many days in a month can you get yourself on the elliptical?

Check in daily! We will tally up the days at the end of each month.

Each month--I will start a new topic which represents each new month----and one additional (optional) and different elliptical challenge for that month.

For example--
January might be upping the resistance--
February might be three 3 days in a row--etc
March--five 60 minute work-outs


Weigh in please--once a month on the 4th.

And on July 4th--we will share on July 4th--share how many days in 6 months we ellipticalized! Yes-I made up that word!
And then we will share beginning and ending weight --and hopefully January(before) pics :huh: and July(after) pics :love:

Please put your name down and let's friend each other in solidarity! We can do this!

    I am glad you are making it a combo-pack (both 6 month long-tern ... time for results to set in if one REALLY does it ...) and breaking it up into 6 mini-challenges of 30 days each (easier to wrap the brain around, and the variations will keep things mixxed up)

    I'm new to the group, and i"m in!

    I would love to be part of this challenge. I have lost 60 pounds so far (gained 12 back :sad: ) And ready to get the rest of this weight off of me! I already use an elliptical but I know that I am not pushing myself as hard as I did in the beginning of this journey and hopefully this challenge will motivate me.
