    Right, I have decided to do a cycling challenge to get myself motivated! I need to lose these last couple of pounds! Anyone is welcome to join me. We can all set our own goals and spur each other on. Actually, it need not be limited to cycling, it could be jogging etc...anything and our goal can be whatever works best with you (time, distance, calories etc). If you want to join please post your name, your goal for week 1 and your method of exercise. We will go from Monday to Monday.

    Week 1:
    Lea - Cycling - 1500 calories - 166 completed

    Obviously the novelty of a new bike is here :D I have done 2 x 10 minute and 1 x 25 minute workouts. Over 700 calories burned today :) I had better eat though - I have not eaten anywhere near that many yet I doubt! Does anyone know how many activity points 45 mins on a bike would work out too?

    I'll join in too. Not sure of my challenge yet, but will post it when I think up a good one.

    Think calories burned might be a good place to start - as I now earn them to eat them. ;)

    That is my reasoning basically rosie. I am nearly at goal but do not want to never have treats so for me exercise = treats :)

    Good luck thinking of a challenge.....

    Well done Jane! It's a start! It all counts too ;)

    I am ill today. I am not sure I am going to be able to do much tonight. I might have a really gentle cycle just so I have done something but I have horrendous cold :( ugh! I feel so rough! I will soldier on though......:D

    well you're over half way already, great stuff especially if you're feeling rough.
    Not sure what i'm going to fit in tomorrow. Am going on a trip with school , then to Olivias dance performance in the evening. Still will be on my feet most of the day i guess!!

    I managed another 40 minutes today :) Feeling like I have a little more energy. I burned 666 calories. I have met my target after only 3 days. I know the novelty will wear off but boy does it feel good. I like this :)

    Has anyone else managed to do anything?
