I've been reading all the posts and haven't had a chance to reply until now. It's great to see all the familiar folks here and so many new ones to come along on the next challenge.
Since I feel like I've finally got my head in the game I'm still working out this week. The program my trainer gave me is a tough one. I had to workout last night instead of the morning. I can usually talk myself out of it at night, but I made myself do it and of course, was glad I did.
Dave, I had the same kind of night as you. I was awake at 4:15. I got 30 min. of TM time with inclines and sprints thrown in. I'm glad I did because I'm worn out tonight. I hope I get a decent night's sleep tonight. I have a meeting first thing in the morning that I'm not looking forward to but at least it will be over soon.
I was reading a 12 week transformation thread on bodybuilding.com and they recommend cardio 7 days a week. It's only 10-15 min. on ST days as well as "rest" days. I know for me, I need more than BFL recommends. I just thought it was interesting.

I'm Trying to do pictures, to get them up on my profile.and my Blogs. Hoping to get them up when this Challenge comes to the end. It will be summer... hoping to have all my weight off this summer.
I was in sports authority this am and I was tempted to struggle and buy a treadmill. I stopped myself and realized that I already have a machine home that is perfectly fine for cardio. If I can get through this challenge with success, then I will purchase it! lol... okay..enough from me.... ttyl
Hi all, count me in! I started an "unofficial" challenge on Feb 14 and have had good results, but just came back from a vacation and needing to re-focus, so this would be a great group :) BTW, my name is also Kim and to the other Kim....funny we share the same goal, I have yet to complete a full 12 week challenge! But I am getting married in August and am committed to seeing it through!!! :)
I got married in Sept. and even that didn't work for me. I hope it does for you!
I've had a great week and for once, have gotten all my workouts in and stayed pretty close to my nutrition plan. I'm hoping to see a loss on the scale when we start tomorrow.
Here we go!
I'm in it to win it with you Roosed! Count me in for this challenge too! I'm going to start on Monday too tho :) I need my extra day of rest in order to stock up on provisions and get ready for C2!

@ Shoshie, I agree diet coke is what we need to give up to being to eat clean and have success with body for life... maybe its me personally because i drink way too much of it...I still have one major question... to those BLF alum... years ago on to site there were many recipes, I mean hundreds ( which I still have that I printed out,... for some reason there are less on this site now.. any reason why? Just wondering... this was back in 2001-2003,,,,
