Balanced Holiday Season

This is a brief write up of our Challenge. I did not come up with this concept. I don't know the lady's name, but it is a friend of a friend's. lol Don't you just love those!

The challenge is six weeks long (11/22-1/2). Each week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday.

Each participant will contribute a prize. Make it something fun or creative, or make it a gift card. Rule of thumb: it should be something that you would be excited to win!

At the end of the six weeks, each participant will get a prize. The person with the highest score will get to pick their prize first. Then we will go down the line - everyone is a winner!

There are a possible of 8 points per day/56 per week. You get (1) point for each wellness goal accomplished.

The wellness goals are:
1. Drink at least 48 oz of water per day.
2. Complete a minimun of 30 minutes of exercise a day.
3. Eat a minimum of 2 veggies and 2 fruits a day.
4. Do not drink soda or alcohol.
5. Avoid added sugar (hint: avoid WHITE foods- rice, potatoes, flour, & sugar)
6. Avoid fast food and junk food.
7. Read something uplifting and fun for 15 minutes.
8. Write in a journal (or blog) - focus on positive thoughts.

It is that simple and should be lots of fun! I will post our standings on our blog too! Week 1 is complete. I am just waiting on everyone's points before posting!
