What did you enjoy most about this online fitness challenge experience?

The sense of obligation to upkeep a journal really helped keep me motivated, but the best part was seeing so many other people who are vegan from all walks of fitness post. I lurked the heck out of these forums and got some nice meal ideas, haha.

Thanks for hosting this, I will keep up with my exercise routine and push it even further next month! :boxer:

What did you enjoy most about this online fitness challenge experience?

I enjoyed the fact that it helped me stay accountable for myself! It motivated me to know that I was going to get up, work out, and post about it later for others to read! It also brings a great sense of community, and general wellness.

I enjoyed keeping a log of everything throughout the month, in a way, it helped me continue to get to the gym and get regular work outs in. I pushed myself and made a goal to keep logging everything. I also enjoyed reading other peoples daily meals and work out plans, sometimes interesting to see how others do things too!

What I enjoyed most was really focusing on taking my diet to a new level.... learning about all the different vegan foods and becoming comfortable using them in the kitchen. What else is great is that I have spread my knowledge to my friends and now they are seeing a new side to healthy eating! It feels great hearing them go and spread the information that I shared with them.... knowledge is contagious!!!!

I've enjoyed seeing so many people posting what they are eating and how they are working out. Gives me great ideas for meals and helps me to see how my diet and workouts could be structured.

Thanks to Robert et al. for all the work you put into this!

Robert - so many good things to like, a new healthy habit, confidence in the gym and in life, positive changes in my body. What I liked best though was feeling like a member of a community and receiving support from my awesome coach, yourself, and other forum members. Being a part of something like this was invaluable.

I love the results i've seen! I like how accountable keeping a journal made me. I feel like I'm letting someone down if I dont update it:) I've gained a solid 6-8lbs this month with my routines. very lean mass gain, looking and feeling a ton better. Even got the books and started towards a career in personal training with an ACE certification. Stoked on the results all around!

Take your time sweetness! I'm sure we're all very grateful for you and all those that have helped out to do this for us, health, and the animals - but no rush on the prizes love! Get some rest, and know that a few (if not most or all) are in it for the long haul because of this project =)
