    Hey Team Six! Sorry I've been so quiet this week. I took a break from being on my phone so much, and that's how I mainly get on MFP. It was a fun week taking a break from electronics and doing more with my family. I was able to accomplish the challenges. I had a lot of fun doing the videos with my munchkin who liked to add her own moves. :wink: The stairs really kicked my butt, but my family is actually starting to notice the changes in my body and are vocalizing it to me, so that is a great feeling! :blush: I think I may make a weekly stairs goal from now on, because I really have enjoyed those challenges a lot! Getting in steps is nice, but climbing stairs really works the booty! :wink: Hope y'all are having a great Sunday!

    Sorry guys I didn't get the videos done this week. I have been a bit off on everything for the last month or so. I will try to get everything next week.

    Please can I clarify with the Challenge 2 option - when choosing a previous challenge, if the week had two bits do we need to do both or can this be just one - for example, Transylvania's two parts were a climbing and a twisting challenge - would we need to do both?

    Challenge 2:
    I think I'm going to pick one of the stair ones since those were my favorite, and I want to continue them kicking my behind, literately! :wink: I suppose I should go big or go home and pick the one with more steps, although Transylvania was probably one of my favorite challenge weeks! So "Climb the Inca trail" with 889 steps up and 889 steps down it is!
    Today, I got in 140/1778. I'll "step it up" the rest of the week! :wink: :smiley:
    Kind of sad that this is the last week, but excited as well! We've all worked so hard to get to this finish line! I am so proud of all of us, Team 6! We may not be winning in points, but we can finish as strong as we're able, and that's something to be proud of! <3 Y'all are awesome! Can't wait for the next challenge, whenever that may be! :smile:

    In the Q&A thread this answer was given by hawkins410:
    You don't have to do BOTH challenges from a country, just ONE of the challenges. So if you'd like to do the stairs from either Transylvania or Peru, go ahead.

    8 lifestyle choices to continue
    1 Counting calories really counts!
    2 Keep drinking water. It fills me up and keeps my mind clear.
    3 Communication within a team is key
    4 Being active every day is important
    5 New dance videos are fun and I should keep dancing with the Peruvian guy!
    6 Eating a variety of colors is fun and keeps things fresh.
    7 I knew exercising outside was important but I really noticed how much after our outside challenges.
    8 Learning about new locations is invigorating to the mind. I'm going to continue with this.
    One new one to try
    Staying active when I can't run. This week I've been feeling awful about exercise. I found out my knee injury is going to require surgery and so I haven't wanted to exercise at all. I'm going to have to get out of this silly mindset and find other ways to exercise.

    I completed challenge #2 todayKAUAI, HAWAII:
    “HIKING THE NA PALI COAST”. It sure didn't feel like Hawaii this morning. 23 degrees (real feel of 13) but I made it 4 miles outside. There's nothing like exercising outside!
