I have been on a BL challenge group for a couple years (I'm the leader of Sapphires) and I LOVE my team! The challenge does help me- it pushes me just enough sometimes- makes me feel loathsome other times, it's a trade off. But it's being on a small group (24) that really checks in on you that I love the most. 3133 days ago
i am doing the january jump start challenge, again, for the 3rd time. the first time i did it was the time i actually succeeded in liking exercising (and ST), noticing and liking the feeling of getting stronger, and therefore of actually making exercise a habit. it's not quite as life-changing anymore (and i must admit i'm not quite as obsessive -- nowadays, i don't feel it's cheating to have a rest day and do two sets of exercises the next day to make up for it ... but that's because now it is a habit. 3133 days ago
I'm always curious about these challenges. I like being more independent, so I'm not on any real SparkTeams and I don't do these challenge things, but I can see that a lot of people really enjoy them and find success with them. For me, I just like doing my own thing. I guess I am just boring and predictable with my lifestyle and fitness activities. :) 3133 days ago
Doing Tone It Up's "Love Your Body Challenge." First time ever doing a challenge. I am doing it to be accountable, keep focused, and to reach my goals. It will help me in also being consistent with exercise and eating. 3134 days ago
I joined the January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge. It's my first challenge even though I've been Sparking quite a long time. I'm doing it because fitness consistency is my biggest challenge. I'm pretty good with food, good at keeping up with tracking, happy with all my non-scale-victories, but not satisfied with stop/start/change fitness activity. Not happy that I'm stuck at the same weight for a LONG time now. It's time to have some "scale victories" along with the non-scale. 3134 days ago
