Brooke here.  Wow!! Mom I think the eyes would have made me walk faster too! That is just a little scary, pretty sure the beast would leave you in the dust if something came after you. Anyhow, health wise I'm all stuffed up and have been dragging myself around all weekend. I did work out Saturday night with the Zumba dvd. Pretty amazing when you wish the program was longer. I also worked out four times last week. I'm planning on working out tonight after I am done posting here. Think I will do cardio turbo jam. I loved the turbo abs. I haven't quite got the hang of the "tuck" yet but I'm trying. I figure if I'm sweating and keeping my heart rate up it works either way.

I'm game for the challenge. When do we start? Have I missed a post from any of my siblings or is it just you and me Mom?

I need a better laid out plan than just my day to day making myself workout. I'm finding it hard to keep at it every day. I know I'm not gaining as my smaller size jeans are starting to be to big but I'm not very motivated lately. Any ideas?

I'm not sure I would do the kettle bell(don't own one, don't really want to buy one) but I could still be working towards winning the pot.

What do you think of starting this Sunday the 16 and making it a 30 day challenge? That would take us to Monday, Feb. 14. And that gives everyone about a week's heads up that it's going to start. Everyone puts in $10 promise and whoever loses the biggest  percentage (of what? fat,weight, inches) wins the pot.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that when I entered my measurements on the body fat percentage calculator
I'm not obese!! I'm average! That's a first in a long time!! Yippee...

Well with that I am going to don my workout garb and get to it. Good job Mom!! Keep at it.


  1. You are doing so great Brooke! I am so very proud of you! I am thinking about having it be the greatest percentage of body weight for this first challenge. Love you!!

  2. So for those times when you wish the workout didn't end - do it again! Just a thought!
