Are you ready for this to begin? I know I am ready for a Fresh Start!! Here are the details below. If you have not signed up, yet, what are you waiting for?
Who: Everyone! Anyone who needs a little motivation to get a bit healthier or simply likes competition! It is not about lbs or inches. It is about a healthier you!
When: 6 Weeks, January 22 -March 4, 2014– If you do not start at the beginning, you CAN join in at anytime.
How: First you need to get an accountability partner. Someone you can check-in with. They do not have to participate in the Fitness Challenge, but they might as well. Also, there will be weekly check-ins on EVERY Wednesday to keep up accountability. Each day an individual can earn 7 points and is in charge of keeping track of their own daily points to report on each Wednesday for the previous week. There will be prizes! See the Prize section below…
Points To Earn Each Day:
- 1 point = Drinking 64+ oz.
- 2 points = Exercise 30+ Minutes (max of 10 points per week – if you do more, great!)
- 1 points = No Sugar (**see below)
- 1 point = 6+ Hours Sleep Every Night Day (Yes, naps do count!)
- 1 point = Personal Goal = We all have something we want to work on, here is your chance to add it into the challenge. It can be changed at the beginning of each week or stay the same.
- 1 point = For checking in with your partner that day. Text/call/email encouragement or let them know “Hey! I worked out!”, etc.

Prizes: There will be one Grand Prize awarded at the end of the 6 weeks of a $50 Fry’s Gift Card, which can be used at an Kroger store. Winner will be based on each weekly entry filled out per individual (for example: if you only participated 6 weeks, you will have 6 entries at the end for the random draw prize). At this time there are no weekly prizes, but I will list the top 3 or more point earners for those who need the competitive edge to the competition.
** A note about No Sugar: I have learned that everyone has their own individual idea of this, so for ease of explanation we will use the top 8 bullet points on the USDA’s Food Pyramid’s description under “Foods that contain most of the added sugars in American diets are:”(which I can no longer find on their site, but it was there before. Promise!)…these are ”regular soft drinks, candy, cakes, cookies, pies, fruit drinks, such as fruitades and fruit punch, milk-based desserts and products, such as ice cream, sweetened yogurt and sweetened milk, grain products such as sweet rolls and cinnamon toast” Most processed foods have some form of sugar in them. Substitute sweeteners are okay. I hardly use anything anymore. Plain and Greek yogurt is great with fruit, but if you cannot find it or stomache it try to use a low sugar brand…The goals is to improve upon what you are doing now. Use your own discretion. You are accountable for you! The main point is to avoid the REAL junk – captain cavity cereals, desserts, etc. That should be doable, right?
Also, if you are a caffeine drinker and wanting to cut it out of your diet, do not do it at the same time as cutting sugar. Wait a couple of weeks so you do not have to fight two cravings at once.
