        That's ok! You can join in on the motivational factor and chat with us. We can always use another weight loss buddy.

        Lisa-- That's awesome that you can run a mile! I don't think that's any small feat at all... I hate running, so I think that's amazing!

          I just finished my fourth day of the 30 day shred and I am so happy with it already! I am still only on level 1 but I can see a difference in my shape already. Everything is tightening up!! I love that it takes only 20 min and I still feel like I have worked...no excuse when it only takes 20 min of my time!!

          Way to go Cougs! Running a mile is great... I hate running too!

            1 1/2 miles is awesome. I don't jog because I'm too big of a wimp. I have to use a machine that moves for me, like an elliptical.

                back on topic, sure i ate a ton for val-day but we also did a ton of wii fit over the weekend. i know the majority of you girls work out all hardcore on a daily basis, so this will sound ridic to you, but i was surprised to find that i am capable of running a mile. i honestly thought i would likely die long before the one mile mark, but i ran a 1.5 miles and not only lived but prob could have gone on longer.

                of course when i say "ran" i am using that word very loosely. it's more like a light jog, haha. small victories.
                Way to go cougs!! I totally understand where you are coming from! I am NOT a runner...at all! I am still only at a fast walk - I hope to get up to a jog soon! Maybe I'll give that a try tonight! Thanks for the motivation!!

                I don't think the "halfway" totals will be discouraging for anyone...if anything I think it will be a kick in the butt! We will still have 6 weeks to bust our ass & win this thing!! (that's my thinking anyway!) If anyone does NOT want the mid-way total % calculated then let Tash know...either here or PM her! As much as I'd like the halfway totals, I don't want anyone to feel down or uncomfortable!!

                So, I didn't reach both my goals for this week. I only lost 1lb (not 2 like I had hoped) but I did make it to the gym for 1hr of cardio 4 times! Now I just have to keep it up & work on that pesky 2 lbs!!

                    Yay Cougs for the mile run!! That's a big step :) When I ran my first mile I felt SO accomplished, you should too! Stop the down-playing of your accomplishments, you rock!!

                    I am on board for the halfway mark... if anyone doesn't want me to do theirs, send me an email or a PM like Manders said and I will leave you off of the halfway mark list. I will still post a weekly results %, just not the 6 week total. We will count initial weigh-in as week 1, which means we are at the 6 week mark this week...deal everyone? :)

                    Linds, you are ridic.! I read it and thought "oh shit, is today thursday?" hahahaha

                      Great job! I just recently started running (well, back in November).. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) for the first time ever and what a great feeling that was! I work out 5-6 days a week so working out a lot doesn't necessarily make running easy. It's taken me awhile to get to 1 mile let alone 3... and it's still a battle every day. Like today for example I could only run 2.... So be proud of yourself that you can run a mile... that really is awesome!
