BOOTCAMP BUDDY CHALLENGE--The President's Challenge

Recommended Posts

Hi All - I joined the challenge back in June, but I don't think I ever posted on the thread - (I just PM'd you Katie). Anyway - I have been slowly working toward my bronze, I'm 34% of the way there and it is my goal to get Bronze by Thanksgiving. This is such an incredible group - I can't believe how many people have achieved their awards and are going for silver. Totally awesome.

 

I've been lurking alot over the summer, but have decided that I need to be a more active participant, so I'll be posting a lot more!

I signed up in July but didn't tell anyone including SSKatie, but here I am now (I was shy and was lurking alot when I joined). I've now got over 20,000 points towards my bronze award! I expect to finish it here in the next couple weeks and move on to the silver! Thanks for starting this group and reviving a great program for fitness. I'm going to see if my work will sponsor a group and buy us our prizes when we reach a goal.

Hey all - I'm so excited I just passed the halfway mark to my Bronze award. I will certainly have my Bronze by Halloween - most likely before! Woo hoo!

 

I am only recording the points that I earn from cycling, walking, and strength training. but it is so fun to see the progress.

I just joined too. I hope this group is still active. Since this is my third week as a re-join and we just received our "Activity Booklet", I'm taking advantage of this "Challenge" keep me motivated in my effort to "get active". Thanks for making me aware of the program. We're all in the "same boat".

Hi everyone,

 

I have NO clue why I haven't noticed this thread before...old age I guess...but anyway I signed up on Saturday so I only have 3 days "under my challenge belt" so far. But I'm going to work my behind off daily!!!

 

Katie, I emailed you...

Howdy there, I have tried to register for the last 45 min, and keep getting an error message, but I will try again tomorrow. Sounds like fun. And will help keep me motivated. Now that the rainy season is starting out here in Oregon, I am going to need a push in the behind.....:embarrass

Hey there Buddies! I'm still trucking along with the Silver level - I am at 57% now. I am going to order my bronze medallion and participant magnet online as soon as they get back to me about my postal code - the form will not accept it!This is a fun challenge - just one more good reason to stay active! :workout:

I just joined today and 200 points on my way to bronze. What a fun way to both motivate and keep track of your exercise.

 

Thanks Katie and you will be missed..

So how's everyone doing with the President's Challenge?? I'm 52% of the way to Silver. I ordered the package for the bronze medal. It comes with the medal, certificate, lapel pin, and ribbon. I think it's way cool. I earned it and I'm so glad I bought it. I can't wait to get to the silver medal level. How are you all doing???

Thanks!!! I joined today and also sent out an inspiring (hopefully) email to my friends and colleagues to join me as well. Let's get through the holidays this year without gaining that supposed 5 lbs. :))))

sounds like everyone's doing great! I'm about 75% of the way to silver! Hopefully I'll get there by soon. Its so hard for me to get motivated when its soooo cold and yucky outside and its only light for 8 hours a day ( or seems like it)!

I found out that you can be a part of multiple groups. I'm now also a part of "healthier feds" as a federal employee. Its a competition between the different units of the government. I'm a part of the USDA and I don't think we'll even come close to competing with the likes of the law enforcement agencies... :D

Awesome job everyone! keep it up!
