This challenge is called "Challenge You"! We all still have struggles and this challenge is to push us as we tackle barriers and realize that we are stronger than we think.
This is a friendly competition based on a point system. The person with the most points at the end of the month will have bragging rights as the winner and should post it in their sig. To keep it a bit more interesting, the winner will also receive a nominal completion gift item from me. To be eligible you have to be a regular poster on our previous "Get Movin" thread.
The challenge will have a weekly bonus section. Completing the bonus will give you an edge and extra points.
The competition scale will look like this:
water=8 | fruit=2 | veggies=3 | good nutrition day=5 | exercise=1 | sleep=1 Total: 20
Possible weekly points is 25
Point system and explanation
This is 8 full 8oz cups of water a day.
If you consume 6 you will get 6 points. This does not include water consumed while exercising.
This is a nominal amount of 2 servings of fruit a day.
Fruit has nutritional benefits, can satisfy a sweet tooth,
can serve as a low calorie snack and is just plain yummy.
This is also a nominal amount as you should eat more within a day.
Good Nutrition Day=5
This includes a day of sticking to your scheduled meal
plan. Not eating anything fried. Eating mainly whole
foods. Getting in your water, fruit, veggie and lean
protein. It can include a dessert item if you had it
scheduled in your meal plan. Oh and no binging, but you do get one free meal a week that will not count against you. Choose wisely!
You must have a "get movin" focus everyday.
Two rest days a week are allowable for month 1.
Next month there will be one rest day a week.
Wonderful things happen during sleep which includes muscle repair
and hormone adjustment. Sleep is very important in keeping our
minds focused and sharp.
There will be a bonus focus which will give you extra points.
If you are running neck to neck with someone, this can put you
over the top.
That's about it! Let's get this party started!!
