2015 – my 20 Weeks challenge begins 

So we are off and racing and my 20 Weeks mojo certainly arrived with gusto and excitement.    I had 40 LeapStars FUNdamentals Fitness Testing to complete.  It was amazing to be apart of everyone planning, working out their own goals and working on their MITS (Most Important Tasks) and BAMS (Bare Ass Minimums).   We also launched Moxiee our awesome habit App.   Thanks to Alex and his amazing team we hit the ground running and had over 300 checkins in the first week.   It was a little more than I had been expecting, despite a few technical teething problems, I realised that we were totally on track with the right tool to ensure our LeapStars are kept accountable during winter.     Totally getting FOMO (Fear of missing out) and because I was so impressed with the results I am already seeing that I got my trainer Lilly Down from Down To Fitness on to Moxiee too so I didn’t miss out!  Totally looking forward to loading in my habits this week.

We also did some planning for my first four weeks.   Riwai and I completed MIT and BAM forms for ourselves, and then we found a little couples competition – we have an all blacks puffer vest that currently doesn’t fit either of us… The one who fits it first gets to keep it!  We also have a journal that we found in a book shop in Wellington, it’s called Our Q&A a day.  Every day it asks us a question and we have to hand write in the answer for each other.  We know it will be an awesome record for the future.   Our first question was “What would you like your partner to remember” …..
