    Heads up everyone: BE CAREFUL doing the Burpees!!! I went to do my 10 for today, and I get down to the push-up position and as I start going down, my wrist twisted and I heard a crack. :sad:
    It's not broken though (thank god!!!!!!!) - I can still move it - it just feels really sore. Icing it and putting it in a splint!
  • Oh no!!! Take care!!!!

    I'm glad it's not broken! Every time I jumped out my achilles? tendon would snap loudly!, so they made me nervous!

    Week 2 challenge started late on day 4

    Day 4: daily challenge? No team challenge? Yes to calories, water & 5K
    Day 5: daily challenge? No team challenge? Yes to calories & water
    Day 6: daily challenge? No team challeng? Yes to calories, water, 10K & bear crawl
    Lost: 1.1 pounds

    I had oral surgery yesterday (a few weeks earlier than planned) so I'm limited to walking for the next few days. I'll make up for it later this week!
  • Ok I'm updating for last week as my internet has kept me from logging on here. I wasn't able to log in and see what the daily challenges were, but I have completed 3 5K's and been under calories everyday. I did not lose any weight, but have maintained where I'm at. Really hoping to get a bit lower this week.

    Glad I was able to log in today so I can get all of week 3's challenges done in time :)

    Oh, and I'm excited that I joined a curves, probably going to start going tomorrow!

    I was only able to do three days of the daily exercise challenge: day 5, 6 & on day 7 I did day 1.
    I had 7 days of drinking the water & staying under the calories
    Then 5 days of 2+ miles per day
    500 crunches complete!
    Weight 187.8 for 2.5 pound loss
    I can't believe how much that oral surgery kicked my but last week!!!
  • Only was able to do days 1-3 as that's when m y internet came back. Been under calories every day! I did gain one pound, but I'm going to assume that's because of female issues :(
