The Fall 5% Challenge starts in a couple of weeks, so there is still time to sign up. What is a 5% challenge you ask? Well, it's 8 weeks where we compete as teams, and travel virtually to exotic destinations around the world. We earn miles for travel with fitness minutes and earn points for learning and incorporating healthy habits into our lifestyle. The overall goal is to lose 5% of our body weight in the 8 weeks' journey.
If you want to try something fun and different and work toward your healthy goals at the same time, give it a shot. I'm super glad I joined the first one in the winter of last year. I've learned new ways to live healthier in each of the three 5% challenges I've participated in, and also managed to lose at least 5% of my weight in each of them too!
Here's the link to the main team...all you need to do is join this team, and then you'll be assigned to one of the smaller teams a week or so before the challenge starts on October 12th. www.sparkpeople.com/mysp
