I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 4

Compass Classroom Premium Membership free for one month



We had a wonderful 50th Birthday party for my husband last night!  I surprised him with having several of his family members do some performances for him.  I love that so much of our family is musical!  Four of my kids recited poems as well; they work on their public speaking each week at our ICC class.   And I sang the 2 songs that I sang at our wedding reception (“Embraceable You” and “Misty”) with my oldest son accompanying on his saxophone!  Such fun!

Well, with all that I did not exercise this weekend, so I only did 3 days last week.  This week will be four!

Next week I’ll be going to my first ever T-Tapp event led by a lovely lady whom I’ve known through blogging for years.  This will be my first blog friend to meet in person!  She’ll be working on correcting our form in the Basic Workout Plus, so I’m really looking forward to that!


Here’s a recap of our our 6-week fitness challenge: Are you ready to lose some inches and get healthier before the holidays? I am! My goal is to lose 1-2 sizes by November 12.

We’re going to keep each other accountable and encourage each other to keep at it by linking up here each Monday. I know I need the challenge spirit to keep me motivated. Exercising is not my favorite thing to do! Link up your blog post telling us how you did the previous week. I’ll share how I did, as well as highlighting a few of you!

If you don’t have a blog, no problem! Just leave a comment here each Monday telling us how you did.

(Also, if you missed the start date, join in with us at any time!)

The rules:

1. Choose any exercise program and do it 4 times each week for 6 weeks (starting Monday October 1 and ending Monday November 12.). Examples of an exercise program are a DVD, gym, class, a 30-minute walk, etc. I’ll be doing T-Tapp, of course! I want the most benefits for the least amount of time invested. 🙂 (Notice, I didn’t say the least amount of effort.)

2. Link up your blog posts each Monday with a report on what and how you did during the previous week (how many work-outs, any inches or pounds lost, benefits to your health). If you don’t have a blog, just leave a comment.

3. Bonus–Add a new healthy habit each week, such as drinking more water, eating more fresh vegetables, getting 10,000 steps with a pedometer, etc.

4. Please follow I Choose Joy! (see sidebar) so that I can remind you to come back here each week to link up your update. Also, please leave a link back here so others can join us! I’ll be posting on my Facebook page throughout the weeks to keep us all motivated — so be sure to Like I Choose Joy! (link in sidebar).

5. I’ll have a couple of prizes to give away at the end of the challenge!
