The following "BLC-WIDE WEEKEND CHALLENGE" will run from Friday 1/18 through Monday 1/21.
D: DECIDE to just DO IT. Have a break-through this weekend. Attack anything that has been holding you back. It could be something you fear. Maybe something that makes you feel silly. Something that you think you can't do. Have you told yourself that you're too old/heavy/out of shape to do something? Maybe you've been putting something off for tomorrow, and tomorrow hasn't ever came. Tackle it, DO IT. Need some ideas? Ask on your team chat thread, your teammates may have some ideas that help spark you! Set a goal of 1 obstacle to overcome. Can be done anytime Friday through Monday. One time points awarded. 100 points.
O: OXYGENATE you body. Do your cardio. Do an activity that raises your heart rate and makes you shine with sweat and pride for at least 20 minutes. 25 points per day that you exercise at least 20 minutes. Max points for 4 days = 100.
I: INTERACT. TWO parts to this one - FIRST post on your chat thread with real information about you - what's important to know about you AND SECOND respond to your team members who post. Don't worry, you don't have to reply to EVERY person, just acknowledge or respond to at least some of your teammates. Is there someone that makes you smile? Laugh? Say "me too"? LET THEM KNOW. These connections will help carry you through the next 12 weeks and *beyond*! 25 points per day that you INTERACT on your team chat thread. Max points for 4 days = 100.
T: TRACK your nutrition. It would be great to be able to stay within your calorie range, but the real focus of this weekend is to get familiar with your food tracker (it doesn't matter if you use Spark, an app, or a paper napkin). Knowledge is power. Know what you're eating! You don't have to be perfect to earn points. Log at least 1 meal to earn 10 points. Log every BLT (Bite, Lick, Taste) for the entire day to earn 50 points! Max points for perfect logging for 4 days = 200.
Your captain will let you know how you are to report the challenge points earned for your specific team. PLEASE be timely to ensure that your score counts for your team. Remember, we're not looking for Perfection. We want you to give it your best effort but don't be detoured by an ALL OR NOTHING mentality!
Best of luck, and remember, when in doubt, JUST DO IT!!
