OK. This week we are going to do something slightly different. This challenge will give us the opportunity for teamwork and a little friendly rivalry.Instead of points this week, we will be earning metres and kilometers (or yards and miles if you prefer). As usual there will be 2 elements - exercise and challenges. You can choose what you want to do.Unfortunately as I've been babysitting today, the scoring isn't ready but I'll put up the full list tomorrow.You will be able to choose if you want to guess the distance you've covered while exercising or report the minutes and intensity (gentle, moderate, hard).The first team to cover 200km (124.3 miles) will be the winners.

Bookhunter, sorry if im being daft but i dont understand this? We get meters instead of points for the challenges? and the winner is the first team to a certain distance - i understand this.but exercise? Is it counted like if you run 1 mile, that counts as 1 mile of distance?or are we just getting cetain distances for each 30 min exercise as usual?I.e, do we need to run/walk to get the points or does classes at the gym still count?thanks xx

Everything counts and it will hopefully make more sense as soon as I post the details. Don't worry about working it out, I will do that.

I've decided to just use 3 levels to make it simpler.
  • Gentle – housework, gardening, slow walking, yoga, stretching, balance games
  • Moderate – fast walking, slow running, swimming, some exercise classes (e.g. aquacise)
  • Hard – running, some exercise classes (e.g. Body Combat, spinning)
When you record your exercise this week, you can either guess the distance or give the level and time e.g. you could report them you've walked 4.25km during the day or that you did 30 min fast walking (moderate) and 15 min slow walking (gentle).Here are the distances for 30 minutes.Gentle 2.5kmModerate 3kmHard 3.75kmFor this challenge, you can report all exercise, so if you do 5 minutes stretching and walk the dog for 10 min, it will soon start to add up.You don't need to calculate the distance – my spreadsheet will do that. Hope this makes more sense. Any questions let me know.

Tuesday's challenge (this should have gone up last night). As with the others, it can be done at any time and as many times as you like. 500mThis is from Top Sante "Willpower is like a muscle:it gets stronger with use". A study suggest that making mini resoulutions and writing them down helps your willpower.For the challenge, post a mini resolution for today or tomorrow. This should be somemething small and achievable e.g. eating all your EDB. It does not have to be PEP related.Wednesday's challenge 500mSuggestionsSuggest something that you have enjoyed that other members make like and explain why. This could be a book, a DVD, an exercise class or something else.

All meals for next week planned. My son made me laugh today, in my sunglasses and flip flops he dashed past me saying “sorry, running late” he is 2 ½ yrs! Been looking at my Body Composition Test from a few years back and am wondering how the BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is affected by 45 checks + EBFs (says I need 1634 kcals/day or I go into starvation mode!) have posted a thread asking about this! Yesterday was housework day so I did a couple of hours of gentle activity plus a couple of hours walking to the supermarket and back and playing in the park with my kids. Also did the park again today and then swimming with them this afternoon for an hour or so. Challenge for tomorrow: weigh it all!!Enjoyable suggestion: a lovely bubbly radox bath
