    Same for me, not sure what I started with, but I do different workouts each day, it's hard to keep up to extra calories when each day is different workouts....nevermind! At least we're all still posting, nearly the end of the month!!

    Almost near the end of this month! How does everyone feel they have done this month so far? I guess with Tuesday just around the corner we'll find out how we have really done.

    I think for a lot of us it's been difficult to stick to this challenge, as we have different workouts on different days and sticking to doing extra each day doesn't work like that. But if we have been making each day of same workouts better each time it must be showing!!

    Looking forward to seeing how everyone has done on Tuesday!! So Monday will be our last workout to post and Tuesday will be pats on the back all round!!!!! :happy:

    I havent done aswell as i would have liked in the challenge but your right Sassy75 its so hard when we all have different routines,but I am pleased that I have kept logging with the group its nice to have the support and its been interesting for me to look back on what im averaging in my workouts as I have been the same weight for a few months.. it shows me that I need to bump it up a bit to stop my body plateauing and getting used to it !
