I just started taking a fibre supplement and I'm already having trouble remembering to take it so this sounds like a great reminder tool. So my challenge is to take that and drink at least 2 litres of water a day. I'm going to have to start tomorrow as I didn't bring my water bottle with me to work so I couldn't keep track.

Day 1: January 29th
Day 2: January 30th
Day 3: January 31st
Day 4: February 1st
Day 5: February 2nd- I wasn't able to measure my water today but I think I made it.
Day 6: February 3rd
Day 7: February 4th
Day 8: February 5th

Vabs you are inspiring! So are you NightAngel

I will try one. I've been trying to exercise daily and have a tendency to quit after a few weeks... I've been going since the 7th now so.... I'll make this level 2 but hope...no plan to ace it instead of pausing.

Day 1: Exercised... volunteer day at the hospital so I did a lot of walking.

Thank you LuvCats. Really, keeping my focus on 21 days at a time has done wonders for my commitment. The time just seems to fly by!

NightAngel26, my elliptical is a Welso Momentum 710. I got it from Walmart about 10 years ago (yikes that's a long time, lol) for about $150. I wanted to get a treadmill back then, but new ones are so pricey! It's held up great after all these years, and I've used it very frequently. Ellipticals seem to have a lot fewer parts that can break down, so I think it's a great investment.

Day 1: exercised (run + weights) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 2: exercised (walk) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 3: exercised (elliptical + weights) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 4: exercised (elliptical) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 5: exercised (elliptical + weights) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 6: exercised (run) / Used pause #1 on calories!
Day 7: exercised (run + weights) / Used pause #2 on calories!
Day 8: exercised (run + elliptical) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 9: exercised (run) / stayed under 1500 cals
Day 10: exercised (walk) / stayed under 1500 cals

Woo, almost at the half way point again! Hope everyone is doing well!

Goal: Exercise everyday (Level 2 but trying to ace it).

Day 1: Exercised... volunteer day at the hospital so I did a lot of walking.
Day 2: Elliptical for 40 minutes (1.25 miles). The most in a long, long time! Yay.

Great job everyone! Lol @ the elliptical discussion. Mine is old too. Brand Nordic Track. Not sure how old but less than 16 years probably and more than a few.

Good Morning everyone! Everyone is doing great. Welcome to the newbies as well and good luck on your goals.

I desperately miss using the Elliptical at the gym, but can't justify spending 60 bucks/month just to use an elliptical. So when I do get my but in gear for exercise (it will be my next 21 day challenge) I'm going to be walking!

Day 1: Exercised... volunteer day at the hospital so I did a lot of walking.
Day 2: Elliptical for 40 minutes (1.25 miles).
Day 3: Elliptical for 25 minutes (.75 mile). Slower today but still feels great.

Great job everyone!!

I'll bet you could find an elliptical on Craig's list or want adds cheap, Laura78. I wouldn't be using one myself if I had to depend on the gym. Just don't do gym well... I've tried multiple times and just don't end up going.
