The Official Fitness Challenge Thread!

Recommended Posts

THE FITNESS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW MEMBERS, IF YOU DID NOT REPLY BEFORE THE START DATE OF FEBRUARY 4TH, YOU MISSED IT, SORRY GUYS!

 

Starting date of February 4th and ending date of April 4th. Each person who decides to participate will eventually contribute $5 each person. This money will be pooled to whoever wins the Challenge as a "prize" and reward for following through and winning the contest... If you have PayPal, you can PayPal the winner your $5, or if no PayPal, you can mail a Money Order or send money Via Western Union.

 

Now, onto the objective. For the length of the contest run, each person will work out, whether it is every day or just when you can, we are all going to be doing it. You will log the amount of time you spent working out, what you did, how you felt etc. You will post all of this in the official MuT Fitness Challenge Thread. At the beginning of the contest on February 1st, we will all log our current measurements in inches on various parts of our bodies. As the contest rolls on, every week on Saturday (starting with Saturday, February 4th).

 

Weekly post your measurements and keep a tally of your total loss in inches from the beginning measurement taken on Feb 1st. You will measure around your upper arm, chest, waist, hips, thighs, and a leg. Add those measurements together for your total initial measurement.

 

Then as the weeks go on, take new measurements, add them together, then subtract this number from your total initial measurement that you took on February 1st. This will give you the total loss of inches that your body has sustained, which is how we will determine the winner of the challenge...

 

By the end of the contest, the person with the most loss in inches will win! They will receive whatever money pool we decide upon... If you also want to take before, during, and after body pictures, you are more than welcome to do so... I am certainly up for it!!

 

If a person wants to stop working out, or decides to stop doing the challenge, they would still come back at the end to participate in the money pool to the winner of the contest.

 

A big important thing to do is to POST! Post when you are feeling energized, post when you are feeling discouraged, post questions about a particular exercise you are doing or ask for help deciding WHAT do to! We all want to support each other and make this contest not about the prize at the end, but about the hard work and sweat we put into our health, into our bodies! You don't have to only post in the thread when you are logging time spent working out, post when you need advice, or when you have advice to give, etc...

 

Let's see if we can make our bodies outshine our gorgeous faces!! :icon_lol:

Ok gals, lets get READY TO RUMBLE !!!! Its ON !!

 

Leila and I are thinking TWO groups for this contest.

 

Group 1: Those already working out

 

Group 2: Those who are not presently working out, or very little.

 

So there will be a pot for Group 1 and a pot for Group 2, all the same details as Leila’s original post here. Leila will keep a list of Group 1 gals and I’ll keep a list of Group 2. We’ll ALL post here together tho !!!!

 

Sooooooooooo, WHO’S IN and what do you think about the two separate groups idea? C’mon gals !!!!

 

Oh BTW, I’m in – group 2 “ )

I mentioned this to Leila and Becka and they suggested I ask yall here.....Of course, since we're changing the date I suppose the answer is dependent on how many more people join. If there is not a significant increase in the number of participants, would anyone be interested in increasing the amount to $10 per person?

 

More money = more motivation and although I'm not even close to confident I would win, I would certainely work harder and the result would be a better me.

 

Of course, I'm in for the challenge regardless. I guess put me in group 2. I haven't worked out in quite some time (except for one Friday a few weeks ago and a walk the Friday after that).

 

I referred a few of my friends from my weight loss group (that I never visit even though I'm the owner). Hopefully, they'll join.

Becka and Leila, very good idea to break us into two groups! Count me in and I'm in Group 1. :clap :clap The measurement advice in the other thread is excellent, btw! Hopefully over the next few days we can hammer out some standards and guidelines, like the group idea, that will benefit those in all fitness levels. Way to go ladies!!

I am also all for contributing $10 to the winner. $5 is fine, too. Whatever everyone decides upon but more money= more motivation. :icon_chee

Wow! I never would've guess you weren't already a workout regular! You always write insightful responses regarding health and fitness so I just assumed you were already in a program. Good to see you part of this challenge!

WHOA !!! LOL

 

So gals, did we decide, are we going to post measurements? I fear I may have a heartattack after I see mine on paper, but, I think I should do it for my own good, just to see if I improve any.

 

and maybe there are more measurements to be taken?

 

I'll post mine tonight, see if I can find the tape measure around here, join me if you want gals!

I think we're going to have to post measurements because IIRC that's what we're using to determine the winner. :icon_bigg Additional measurements would be definitely the upper thigh area and arms. Both areas would be measured at the fullest point. IMO, from the existing chart, the only one that I think is not so necessary is the "low waist" measurement. It's almost redundant to the natural waist measurement. So, if we skipped that one point and added my two suggestions (of course this is just a suggestion...lol!) then we would have:

 

1. Bust

2. Waist

3. Hip

4. Upper Thigh

5. Arm

 

Other ideas: pictures are a good idea, and maybe for those that don't want to do a full body shot can do pics of the specific area while measured w/ the tape measure? For example...like for one shot have the waist with the tape measure around it, with the number apparant and clear? With this there will be a level of proof where we are and where we end up. Juuust a suggestion! *grins!* :icon_chee :icon_redf :icon_redf

 

Edited to add example of a measurement photo. :)

Kerry you said it better than I ever could have! Those measurement locations are utter perfection, and you explained them perfectly! :clap And yes, you recall correctly, we are doing this contest by measurements. You will win or lose the Challenge literally by inches! :icon_bigg

 

I'll probably take a couple scary pics for reference myself, and some with the tape measure around me as proof.

So what does everyone think about formally saying we will pool $20 each? It seems like it is what most of you are saying. If we all agree on it, I'll go change the original post.

    • Thought i'd let you all know that members of the UK can enter a giveaway to win a hollywood mirror worth £200 from HD Mirrors They have a giveaway on their instagram and facebook open until next month
    • Hi,  I have pale skin and freckles and find it hard to figure out which type of concealer and/or foundation I should use. On top of that, I blush quite easily and would feel more comfortable if it didn't show through my makeup. That would make me feel a lot more confident. Any advice? Thanks!! Kristen
    • I have started using K-Beauty Products for 2 months, suggested by my friend as she was using it for a long time. Actually I got fed up by using skincare products from various brands and no results. But after using K-beauty products I have seen great results within a month. My favorite brand is Sulwhasoo and I'm loving their products. I order these products online from Althea at a discount price which makes me even happier.  
    • Thank you❤And I like grey too. It's so mysterious!
    • Your skincare routine should involve the following  1. CLEANSE- Thats the main part of any routine. Cleanse two times a day-once in morning and other in evening. 2. MOISTURE- The key to any healthy skin is by moisturizing it daily. ,  3. PROTECTION AGAINST THE SUN- Protection against the sun is the most important for oily skin. I would recommend you to use  water-based sunscreen as oil based sunscreens make you look greasy. And the do's other than this -Remove makeup before going to bed Keep your skin and body always hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables that are highly rich in water.
