Health Challenge

This post is going to be a little bit different. What I have for you today is a Health Challenge. Are you with me? Let me explain the details. All I’m asking for is TWO WEEKS. After 14 days, lets see if you feel any healthier and/or lighter.

I’m participating in this health challenge that is put on my by a good friend here in Logan. And it goes for 12 weeks. 12! So, please just do 2 weeks with me.

Here is the challenge: You get a point for each of these things a day. At the end of the two weeks tally up your points and we’ll have a points winner. I’m thinking a Subway gift card? Mmmm. (nothing too much, but enough to motivate 🙂

Challenge #1: WRITE IT DOWN. Write down all the food that you eat each day. Use a tracking sheet. http://www.sparkpeople.com/ is a great website. There are a million websites out there to track calories. Good old paper and pencil works great too.

Challenge #2: Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Yes! You can do this. Water makes us fill up and it helps us feel full and is so beneficial for so many reasons. Drink up (water that is!)

Challenge #3: Exercise at least 45 minutes to an hour Every day! (30 minutes will get you a half point) Monday through Friday. Try to squeeze this in every day. Exercise is essential to our health. It clears our mind and body (literally!) Even if you go for a walk outside, try to get this in every day.

Challenge #4: Eat 6 servings of either Fruit/Veggies a day. You can totally do this.

Are you up to the challenge? For each day that you complete each challenge (you can make a little chart to check off the boxes) You get a point. So, say I exercised 3 days next week, and drank 8 glasses of water 2 days, and ate all my veggies 5 days, then I get 10 points for the week. I’m super excited to do this with all of you.

If you’d like to take the 2 week challenge with me, please leave a comment below.
We start today! You can do it!!

    I’m in! I needed a motivator to get me going this spring, and this just may be the motivation I needed. Thank you! I will do my best.

    I’ll do my best, but I’m terrible at writing my food down. I wish my exercise the last 2 days counted. 🙂

    I have been tracking food and exercise since 1 december 2011 and have lost 10kgs. It is very empowering to feel the great impact it has on your life. Good luck everyone.

    I’ll do it. I’m one of Natalie’s friends. Writing down the food will be hard, I need to do this. Good luck.
