    Here’s my tweet:

    Good Luck, everyone! <3

  20. We have loved our strapped version! I can’t wait to give this one a try (fingers crossed). Tweeted:

  21. How much fun to have such a great tool to help keep track of workouts! I am such a nerd about all sorts of fitness gadgets and info! I would love to participate and share information with my personal training clients, group fitness classes and bootcamp classes that I teach. I will definitely be sharing this cool product and opportunity!

    Thanks much!

  22. This would be a great opportunity to be able to find out exactly how hard I am working out. I would love the opportunity to review this product.

  23. I am so excited to hopefully be apart of something like this…I needed to start exercising and stuff, but I was lacking the accountability factor and this is PERFECT! GREAT idea!!!!

  24. I applied, I think this would be the motivation to keep me dedicated!

  25. Would love to apply if this was open for international bloggers too but with 80% US audience.

  26. I love this challenge/campaign! I’ve been working hard at losing weight through eating well and exercise. This would be a great tool and provide motivation/accountability to get me to my goal weight!!

  27. This challenge sounds amazing and so fun! What an awesome way to motivate family, friends and others around you while making positive Changes! I pray I get the opportunity to do this and that my new blog will take off! As a new physical therapist asssitant I know how important exercise and being healthy truly is! I can not wait to share this with patients friends and so many others! I have wanted a heart rate monitor for awhile so I know how many calories I burn doing a cardio class, my mamavation challenge workouts, work out DVD’s or Zumba!
    This challenge will change my life for sure and hopefully will motivate a few others along with changing my life! 😉

  28. I so hope I get this….. I really really need it. I think this will be so fun and motivating :)


  29. Thanks!! I applied, tweeted twice and shared on Facebook :)

  30. Well Leah, I am finally signing up to do something with Mamavation! Jeez it has taken long enough! I have way to much baby/cookies weight to get rid of. I am to the point where I want to punch sugar in the face. That is saying something coming from me ;-P Anyway, I definitely need something like this to get me in shape or at least on my way before my 30th birthday coming up. Shared on Twitter and Facebooke <3

  31. What a perfect opportunity! Sharing now!

  32. I just applied. I have been looking forward to doing a challenge and I am hoping for the opportunity to participate in this one. I have done workouts but have been at the mercy of writing things down, since I workout outside and use whatever is handy around the house. This would be a great tool and would give me some insight on where I am physically and also a great motivation and accountability tool to help me along my way. I tweeted and pinned it.

  33. This wasn’t supposed to make me cry was it?

    I have a small blog with so few followers on twitter and facebook, but I still applied. (and shared)

    I am so worried that I am losing all control with my fitness. People are always amazed at the walking I do (2740 miles this year woohoo), but the scale and the mirror are proving to me that I ned to do so much more.

    I am nearing 50 and for the first time in my life I feel like a failure. I could use all the help that I can get, and a few kicks in the rear.

    good luck everyone

  34. I am ready for this challenge. I signed up!

I also have a few people on my facebook fan page.I have been working at losing weight, finding things that would fit my budget and have just been trying to stick it out. I would love the opportunity and didn’t realize how much I would love the opportunity until I was writing. I don’t have a smart phone, I go to places with wifi because of finances and not having the extra money to spend in other areas. I am thankful for the possibility of this opportunity.
