About 6 weeks ago, I was challenged by the Proverbs 31 Weekly challenge to exercise 3 times a week. So, I began to walk in the mornings. It's not pretty. I don't have to be to work until 9 am, so at 6:40 am, I literally roll out of bed. By 6:45, I'm out the door with my swishy pants, sweatshirt, and earphones & walkman (from my 13th birthday!). No hair or teeth brushed - like I said, it's not pretty. Well, anyways, now I'm doing a jog/walk for 1/2 an hour every morning. The nice part is that I'm seeing results! I've lost 6 lbs. and the endurance is growing.
Now, I was searching on the internet and came across this program called Body for Life. It's a 12 week challenge to lose weight. It's based on 6 small meals a day --made of both protein & carbs & excercise - cardio workouts and weight lifting. This program is linked to a "healthy food" store & you are required to use at least one of their products during the challenge. These aren't prepared meals, but milkshake powders & energy bars and may be one of your meals. If you complete the challenge, fill out the form, and send it in, you have a chance of winning big bucks! $50,000 It's not based on how much you lose, but on your essay you send in.
This sounds good, but has anyone heard about it? We're thinking of starting up with the May 15 challenge & giving it a try this summer. Let me know what you think.
