    Ooo I screwed up. If I post my goals now, can I still get a green name. Don't need a prize.

    I've decided to document my exercise here, seeing as I'm oober p that will be a trial, and sorry to be frustrating I will kinda have to review it on a weekly basis due to work and up coming study issues, but ultimately my goal is be active and exersize daily for at least 30 mins. This should include walking, yoga, and/or pilates, also zumba classes when I can
    attend. Maybe swimming. But my initial goal is to start off with exercise 3x times a week. This should be my minimum.

    We're here to encourage each other and help keep each other accountable to our own goals.
    The prize at the end isn't the REAL prize.
    The REAL prize is being in better health, self-respect and self-esteem.

    I hope you like Canada. I'm hoping to find a British Canadian myself someday.
    All of this is accurate... everyone can approach it in their own way, though, as long as they do not negatively affect others' experience of the Challenge. YWIR just happens to be a little on the competitive side. Just watch!

    Yes. Monday through Sunday is the normal week - it's just that beginning this competition on the 31st of the month necessitated also beginning on a Wednesday; the challenge also ends on a Wednesday.

    In terms of the contest, the two half weeks add up to one at the end, so for the purposes of calculating goals met and cheats used it doesn't matter at the end. On the spreadsheet it looks a little odd, that's all.

    Yes.

    Most of my involvement in the forum involves arguing about politics and religion so I'm really looking forward to being a part of something that is positive and encouraging.
    I look forward to having ye here.

    That was yesterday, if I read correctly. "Today" is a new day, now. That means this statement can easily change.

    I remember you posting and asking about it earlier. Yes. Not in the challenge's contest, but as a friendly participant, surely.

    Friendly reminder: Any updates for last week need to be posted by the end of Wednesday; correspondingly, all contestants' updates and progress will be posted in summarised form either late Wednesday or early Thursday.

    Ftr, my beginning goal is to exercise 4x a week for a minimum of an hour (hiking or biking) and to do back stretches everyday. An expansion on this will be posted to my own exercise thread as well as more specific nutrition goals. The big nutrition goal will be no beer at home and no more than one beer if I go out, but only once a week.

    My current goals: half and hour to an hour of gym time every Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday; and increasing my running endurance by a quarter of a mile each month (right now I can do a quarter of a mile, or one full lap before being winded. I'd like to do a mile and a half in the next six months.

    If you wish to participate, post goals and progress thus far (since it sounds like ye work out already, that could count). Being a friendly participant (as opposed to those who are in the contest portion of the Challenge) is possible whenever anyone wishes to join.

    I just saw this today. I'm setting a goal of lifting my weights 3 times a week, tentatively Mon, Wed, Fri - but I'm flexible with that. And at least one day a week (maybe weekends) do some walking. The walking will be easier when it finally cools off around here (i.e. January )

    I last lifted Thursday, so I skipped Monday this week, but then I hadn't really set the goal yet. I am going to get up and lift in the morning tomorrow before work.

    Oh, and I don't check this forum nearly as often as I did when we were doing the first challenge deal, so it would be awesome if someone could message me to remind me to update my progress. (Udog was kind enough to do this several times last year)

    (is it preferred to post our weekly updates here or in our own threads? or maybe in a new "weekly updates" thread? )

    For the half week (Wed-MonSun - this half week confuses the *&^&^% out of me for no reason, maybe because Monday was a holiday here....anyway...):

    -achieved modest weekly exercise goal (1x p90x)
    -achieved weekly meal goal (cooking one healthy meal from scratch)
    -good so far with daily goals of drinking 2 glasses of water and eating green veg at (minimum) 1 meal. which are both harder than I thought they'd be, honestly.
    -end of thread-
