There are a bunch of us interested in changing something about our lifestyle. Some of us would like to change our diet habits. Some of want to change our sleep habits. Some of us need to work on flexibility, consistency, etc., etc.
We are going to have an 8 week long contest starting Sept. 4 and going until Oct. 30. Each participant will choose 3 items to focus on, at least one fitness related, and at least one diet related.
Each participant will receive 30 points each week. Every "cheat" will deduct 5 points from the weekly score. Yes, it is possible to get a negative score for the week!
We will also do 2 benchmark workouts the first and last week of the challenge. 10 points will be awarded to the participant who makes the most improvement on each workout.
Participants will also be awarded an extra 10 points for each week with no cheats.
You set up your own goals and rules, and the rest of us will hold you accountable. Weekly goal sheets will be turned in at the gym every week so that a running score tally can be posted.
If you have a weight loss goal and you achieve it, 10 points will be awarded. You must weigh in at the gym at the beginning and end of the challenge.
For example, this is what I am setting up for myself:
More than one 6 oz. glass of wine, 12 oz beer, or one mixed drink (1.5 oz liquor) is a cheat.
Daily stretching for at least 10 min. Anything less is a cheat.
Giving myself an extra opportunity to cheat:
Less than 1 crossfit workout per week is a cheat
Less than 2 lifting sessions per week is a cheat
Less than 22K per week on the rower is a cheat
less than 8 hours of sleep in 24 hour period is a cheat
Set up a check sheet in excel. If you need help with this let me know.
$20 to enter. Winner takes all!
Highest score wins. In the event of a tie, the pot will be split.
