    Well, Dude and Dudettes, I'm disappointed to report that I had 0 weight loss this week. Not really surprised given the turn of events these past few days. Thank you all for your kind words and understanding regarding my family situation. Working out with a little one underfoot is near impossible, so we've just been going to the park and running around and throwing rocks in the water.

    Amazing that those of you with little ones can fit it in. And have the energy. I imagine it WAS easier when I was 30 years younger!

    You are all amazing and I will hope to bring it back next week when things get back to normal.

    Overall, we had a perfect turnout of 100% of our team reporting for a total of 26.9 pounds lost! Absolutely fabulous!

    Hey y'all!! Well, today was weigh in day and it's been up and down all week but I'm down 1 pound. Not crazy but I'll take it. This week will be the week I really have to,be focused because in the past week 3 is a upslide or down fall !! Also, I noticed some people have really exact numbers for weight loss. Maybe it's just my scale, but I've never seen it do anything but either the number or .5 do you all have special scales ? Anyway, Happy Saturday to all !!!!
    @RaeBeeBaby don't get too diacouraged!! You were there for a little one, and that is awesome!!!

    @RaeBeeBaby I second what @krenae312 said - don't get discouraged! You are an amazing grandmother! And you are going to have a KILLER week this 2nd week, I know it. :)

    Great job, everyone on Team DUDE!

    Here we go for week #2! Here's an exercise challenge for those of you who'd like to participate. (@Gustaaf85 - you may have to sit this one out due to your back injury, but maybe you can substitute some of your physiotherapy exercises.)

    This is the alphabet exercise challenge and it's based on the letters in your name. It's about doing different exercises to help add variety to your exercise routine.

    togjrn46jjrv.jpg

    For example, my first name is actually Raeann. So my workout would be:

    R - 15 push-ups
    A - 50 jumping jacks
    E - 1 minute wall sit
    A - 50 jumping jacks
    N - 25 burpees
    N - 25 burpees

    Not a lot of variety, so I might add my middle name and my last name. If I really get ambitious I might do my husband's name, my kids' names, my grandson's name, and my dog's names.

    Let's see how far we can get on the name game this week!

    NOTE: I really have a difficult time with burpees, so I will do a modified version. Here's a nice little video that shows how to modify this move and still get good workout.

    I'm stealing that alphabet workout for myself!! Love it! I'm going to do 2 days of my name, 2 days of my daughter's and 2 days of my son's with 1 day of rest. The best part is I can do those exercises with my kids...they'll love that we're doing their names. :smiley:

    THANKS!!

    Alright Team, we had an AMAZING week coming in 3rd place overall! I'd like to put out a challenge to try to get 1st place next week! I think we'll probably need to beat 1.23% total body weight to get there (judging from week 1's first place team), so let's shoot to each lose 1.25% of our current body weight. I did the math, here it is:

    @Gustaaf85 2.5
    @SethKaishi 3.8
    @Roxmom3 2.4
    @cynbet69 2.8
    @candicelh79 1.8
    @Lesly_Barrett_1209 2.3
    @Krenae312 1.9
    @chrizzy8 1.9
    @iheartcookies2 2.4
    @w8ingforthesun 3.0
    @JordisTSM 3.2
    @Jmilner89 2.4
    @vwoman 2.7
    @RaeBeeBaby 2.0
    @bhappy_5 2.7

    WHO'S IN???!!!

    Of course, this is just a challenge and meant to support your goal of weight loss, so if this doesn't fit into your goal, we will still support and encourage you. Just wanted to try to set the bar so we can all push ourselves!!

    Looking forward to a kick-gut week. :smile:
