4. Testimony -

I have had a good experience doing this crunch. I had never participated in a blog and was not sure about the time it would require. I may not have spent as much time posting and participating as I should have, but I wanted to be sure I had some time to exercise. The exercise was my reason for taking this challenge. I have to say I am thrilled about the results of Jillian's workout (or rather MY workout with HER videos). I have lost 26 centimeters (10 inches) in very strategic places. I had set a goal of 57 in my mind but thought that was rather poor for a 8 week project, so I said I wanted to loose 4 kilos (I came back from the US at 60 kilos. Well, I am at 56.4, but thrilled of the progress. I have found I can work out at home and get good results. I hope I don't forget and stop my routine.
I have enjoyed reading about you all and being able to encourage some as I got encouraged. I have appreciated the links and the tips many of you posted. Thank you.
Have a nice Christmas time with your loved ones and exercise moderation at the table. I'll try to do the same. My problem is before the table. I have the bad habit of eating while I fix the food. That HAS to be one of my New Year's resolutions! Here is my accountability!

Merry Christmas and a Fit 2010

Ideas- I didn't do great giving myself points. I came to the conclusion that I either kept up with the "paper work" or I exercised, so I chose the workout. I would like a once a week post to report on how we are doing keeping with our resolutions and goals.

6. Minutes exercised - Hmmmm! Roughly . . . taking 50 points off from posts, and multiplying by 20 minutes per point would tell me I exercised 40 hours in the past 8 weeks, which means 5 hours a week--That's how much my kids practice the piano! This is a rough estimate, though.

Beautiful card! Maribel, you did an excellent job! I am so encouraged by all that you accomplished! I totally understand about the posting and it taking up too much time.
It is something I had not anticipated at the beginning but will be changing when we do the next one.
So thankful for you!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
