Sorry to hear, I hope she has a quick recovery.

I'm going to get one achievement for the week tonight so I don't get any more negative points...lol... and then we'll see if I can manage any kind of comeback.

Nice job Cris. Hard week, and I am impressed. I managed to fall ill at the start of the week and have failed it miserably.

Jeff, one is better than none. Any attempt is better than no attempt. It's all I've wished for as creator of this. And no sympathy points were ever discussed so I can't award them 😏

I will post the elusive week 9 challenges later. The number nine in numerology has normally been designated as a finish or end number, among other distinctions. Therefore, for week nine, I will be finishing your already tired muscles 😈

Thanks for keeping me motivated!

A year after that a good friend of mine went in to get his pace maker put in and died of complications...he had told me he was scared to go in and do it, said he didn't want to die while they were doing it. I had told him that it would be ok and that this procedure though tricky, has been done a lot and there is much more knowledge and experience so he'd be ok. Yea, so.... I just don't know how to feel about that....except awful...and now my mother actually flat lined, she collapsed at work, but they were able to bring her back, said her heart had gone into afib like my brothers and she also has had a heart murmer, so I know this pace maker is probably the best thing for her, but still, it scares me. I won't be talking about this openly in this thread any more. Again my apologies for hi jacking the thread.

Now on topic.. I got one achievement for 25gs. Today about 5:30pm.. Not the achievement I was going for, but it was in X-Box Fitness so it should count as participation.

Jeff, you're good for the week. And again, no apologies - family is my #1 priority, so 'hijack' away! The heart is a tricky and amazing organ, and modern medicine has come a long way in aiding it's function - it's okay to trust medical professionals despite the past. Complications and contraindications arise no matter what, and every person and case is unique. I have faith that your mom will be cared for appropiately. You need to display confidence in her convey to her that she needs to feel confident about her needs - that will help both your moms attitude and the success of what's neccessary. As a combat medic, encouraging even the most dire and destroyed casualties meant the entire world to them, and would often allow them to recover from inescapable wounds and injuries. Have faith and trust in the attending doctors and they will in turn inspire faith and confidence in you and your mom.

Easy to say, but incredibly hard to do, I know.

I have posted the week 9 challenges in the original post - it's not too bad... Wink
Alright, week 7 is in the books! On to week 8!!! Here's the challenges:

Week Eight: October 20th to October 26th
Participation goal: 400 gamerscore from Kinect required games: +2 points
Bonus goal: Crazy 8's Challenge - Earn your participation gamerscore in 8, 16, 24, 32, or 40 achievements (multiples of 8): +2 points
Leader goal: Earn at least 1 achievement in more kinect required games than anyone else this week: +2points
No Participation Penalty: -3 points

I will be tallying up week 7 points tonight. I know I did not fair well; I have been rather ill the last week and tried to meet even the minimal goal with failure. I know Cris went to town, most likely nailing all the goals. Jeff and Fsh had some points... but I haven't looked closely yet. Gimme a bit, guys! Also, don't forget to sign up for Cycle 3!

This is the last week folks. It's pretty apparent that Preludecris has worked hard and has literally won this cycle already. There is no way I can take the crown from him unless I was a complete jerk AND if Cris failed to participate at all. That would be the perfect storm for him to not win this cycle. Cris, all you need to do is earn just ONE Kinect achievement by Monday evening, and you officially win Cycle 2... the suspense...

Hmm. To be a jerk, or not to be a jerk Wink lol
