We are now on Day 3 of the cross blog conversation with Shannon over at The Shrinking Mommy blog. This is so fun! Shannon answered my CBC questions from Monday in this blog post and then asked me another great question. So here we go….
I noticed that you have done several challenges, like Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred or the Whittle My Middle challenge you are doing this month. How have they helped you keep on track?
Yes, I love participating in fitness challenges like these. They help keep me on track because once I put it out there on my blog that I’m going to be doing a challenge, I have to then stay accountable to everyone. Sure there have been times I started a challenge and didn’t complete it for one reason or another but once you say you are going to do something you are committed to it. I feel that challenges like these also help give me a boost by showing me I CAN do this weight loss thing and accomplish anything I set my mind to.
Both Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and the Whittle My Middle Ab Challenge are 30 days long so I really stepped out of my comfort zone to do them but it totally feels great to accomplish challenges like that. I look forward to more!
My question to you Shannon is:
Have you ever participated in any exercise challenges and if so would you consider doing more in the future? I am in the process of planning a fitness challenge for my blog readers in February and would love for you to consider joining in but we’ll talk more about that challenge later.
Looking forward to hearing Shannon’s reply to this question? Be sure to check back on her blog tomorrow where she will also be asking me another question.

Do you participate in fitness challenges? If so, please share more about what you have done in the past and any plans for future fitness challenges.
I love your determination and accountability Angie! I answered your question over on my blog and asked you a new one.

Can’t wait to hear your response!

Great idea – I love ‘challenges’ – but haven’t accepted any of the health and fitness variety!
You are so-o right – there is something about “putting it out there” that inspires you to push yourself more than you might otherwise.
Now I’m off to go and read the rest of your cross-blog series! 🙂

Challenges have helped me in the past. Online challenges with a group of other “losers” on a forum, and also a real life challenge, where a colleague challenged me to lose weight if she quits smoking.
These days, I am using the C25K challenge – challenging myself to run 5K and so far, keeping on track!
