Great ideas!

Since there is only about 1 week left in the year, let's get some momentum now!

Feel free to start a new thread with any challenge ideas =) I like the new fruit/veggie per day challenge, I just hope it doesn't get too expensive. I tend to buy my fruit in bulk.

Maybe it could look like this ?:
M-Apple
T-Banana
W-Orange
TH-Grapes
F-Papaya
S-Plum
Sun-Peach

I hope I'm understanding that correctly. I think that would be a great way to kick off the new year!

I like the idea of mini-challenges that focus on health behaviors. We can have yearly, monthly, weekly challenges- I'd suggest daily, if the team was active enough. Weekly challenges would be something like, eat a different fruit or vegetable each day (promotes variety of fresh foods, helps us find one we like), get at least 7 hours of sleep each night, exercise for x number of minutes, things like that. Monthly challenges would be more like, "lost 3% of body weight"- like going from 150 to 145.5 or "drop body fat percent by 2%"- going from a BF% of 27 to 25. Then yearly would be the big ones for people who need to either lose a lot of weight or have really high fitness goals, like they want to run a marathon or something.

I'm thinking of starting a short one- till the end of the year, maybe?

Choose your goal and track it in the challenge thread.

Example? - I will not drink soda for the rest of the year (12 days!)

OR- I'll exercise every day until the end of the year.

OR- I'll track my food every day until the end of the year.

etc...

What do you guys think?

I was thinking that might be a great way to gain some healthy momentum into the new year!

Hi Everyone!!

Got any ideas for team challenges? Post them here!!

There are so many different challenges on SP so if you see something in other teams that you think might be fun, go ahead and share with all of us!

Feel free to start any challenge- I'll try to keep an ongoing list of all current challenges with links to sign up so we can all stay motivated.

Good luck!
