Part Two of this week's challenge is a return to our fitness drills that we did the first week of the BLC. It's time to retest ourselves and see how 8 weeks of hard work has paid off! Did your times get better? Did your reps get greater? Celebrate your improvements!

You can do any of the drills on any day, in any order. You only need to do each drill once.
Completing each drill and posting your personal results will earn you 10 points per drill.

Drill 1 - Do as many crunches as you can in 2 minutes. Post your total to earn your points.

Drill 2 - Do as many push-ups (regular, modified or wall) as you can in 2 minutes. Post your total to earn your points.

Drill 3 - Hold a wall squat as long as you can. Post your hold time to earn your points.

Drill 4 - Hold your arms out to your sides (at shoulder height) as long as you can. Post your hold time to earn your points.

Drill 5 - Do 150 step-ups (non-stop) using a 6 or 8 inch step. Post your time to earn your points.

Drill 6 - Hold a plank (on toes or knees) as long as you can. Post your hold time to earn your points.

Drill 7 - Hold a bridge as long as you can. Post your hold time to earn your points.

Drill 8 - Do as many jumping jacks, mountain climbers, high-knees, of jump-rope skips as you can in 2 minutes (pick an exercise that is challenging but SAFE for you to do). Post your total to earn your points.


You must post your time or count for each activity to earn your points!

The third part of the week's challenge is step 8 in our Improving You Series: Refine the Plan & Stay on Track!

Now's the time to evaluate our efforts, refine it to make it as good as can be, and to keep on track! We all need to think about what's working for us and make sure that we keep doing what works!

BLC 20 - Week 6 All-Team Challenge
LAPS & STRENGTH TRAINING AND IMPROVING YOU, STEP 6: MEASURING PROGRESS
Monday 02/13 to Sunday 02/19

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first part of this week's challenge is all about laps!
Walking laps, running laps, swimming laps, biking laps!
Anything you can do to get your body moving!!!

Earn 1 point for each lap (or lap equivalent) you do this week.

Sample Laps:
A walk around the block
A walk around a track (1/4 mile)
A quarter mile on a treadmill
A mile ride on your bike (or exercise bike)
A half mile on an elliptical
50 yards or meters in a pool
100 stairs or step-ups in a row (6" step or higher)
5 minutes treading water
10 minutes of dancing / jumping rope / plyometrics

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The second part of this week's challenge is all about strength training!
Any 10 strength training reps = 1 point

**Make it count! Yes, you could do 200 bicep curls with 2 pound weights... but why?
Do 30 with 10 pound weights and make it count instead!
This is about building strength and muscle - not just earning points! Got it!?!?
Work out SMART - if you do a tough workout, give yourself time to recover and rest your muscles!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The third part of this week's challenge is Step 6 in our Improving You program: Measuring Progress.

Remember the words of SparkGuy: Goals are Dreams with Deadlines. During this challenge, we envisioned our goals and have thought about changes that we can make to help us change our goals. Let's reevaluate where we're at - and measure our progress.

BLC 20 - Week 5 All-Team Challenge
FITNESS MINUTES, BREAKFAST & SLEEP AND IMPROVING YOU, STEP 5: TAKING SMALL STEPS
Monday 02/06 to Sunday 02/12

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is another BIG week! Lots of pieces, but again, this should be easy to track! This week, we're going to focus on two important parts of living a healthy lifestyle - eating a healthy breakfast and getting enough sleep!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part One of this week's challenge is fitness minutes - both cardio and strength training. If you can track it on your Spark People Fitness Tracker, then it counts!

Points: You get one point for each minute of exercise you do each day (maximum 240 points per day)

Remember only exercise counts! Walking for your job, etc. doesn't count for this challenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part Two of this week's challenge is going to focus on two healthy habits that are often overlooked - getting enough rest and getting a good breakfast!

You can track your hours of sleep per day in quarter-hour increments for this challenge.
-You can earn up to 10 points per day for sleep. (For example, 8 hours and fifteen minutes of sleep is worth 8.25 points.)

Earn 10 points per day for having a breakfast that contains at least 10 grams of protein/fiber (combined).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part Three of this week's challenge is Step 5 in our Improving You series: Take Small Steps.

Now that we've set goals, made changes, and enlisted the support of others, it's time to drill down and focus on those things that will really help us make the changes we've made permanent healthy habits.

This week, earn 15 points per day that you take a small step towards your goal. This could be getting in your workout, adding 10 minutes to your workout, tracking all your food, getting to bed on time, getting in 8 servings of freggies each day, or keeping out of the tempting candy dish! This is your challenge. Pick what you need to work on and be determined to reach your goal!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first part of this week's challenge is all about getting our sweat on and feeling the burn!

Points will be awarded for based on calories burned through exercise.

Track your fitness minutes on the SparkPeople Fitness tracker. Earn 1 point for each calorie burned through trackable cardio activities this week.

Notes:

If you're using a HRM or Body Bugg, please only report calories burned during cardio activity for this challenge. Thank you!

Weight training sessions that get your heart rate up can be logged under calisthenics on the Spark People fitness tracker to get an approximation for your calorie burn for the purposes of this challenge.

For this challenge, power yoga or pilates can be tracked as cardio.

The second part of this week's challenge is Step 4 in our Improving You program: Make Strong Relationships.

BLC 20 - Week 2 All-Team Challenge
FITNESS MINUTES, FIBER, FREGGIES AND IMPROVING YOU, STEP 2: TALKING TO OTHERS AND GETTING SUPPORT
Monday 01/16 to Sunday 01/22

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a BIG week! Did you see all those things in the challenge title???
Now before you panic, take a deep breath in, then out, and let me explain!

Every challenge for BLC 20 is going have some activity tied to it, and every challenge for BLC 20 is going to have an "improving you" talk/thought challenge... this one also just happens to focus on a super healthy habit - getting in your fruits and vegetables!

Your fitness minutes, fiber, and freggie counts will be tracked on your fitness and nutrition trackers, so you'll have easy access to this data to post at the end of the week! (And since you're logging all your food (right?) you don't even have to do anything extra!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part One of this week's challenge is fitness minutes - both cardio and strength training. If you can track it on your Spark People Fitness Tracker, then it counts!

Points: You get one point for each minute of exercise you do each day (maximum 240 points per day)

Remember only exercise counts! Walking for your job, etc. doesn't count for this challenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part Two of this week's challenge is all about fiber, fruits, and vegetables!
Fiber and Freggies are GOOD for our bodies! Let's focus on the good stuff this week!

Points: You get one point for each gram of fiber you have each day, up to 35 points per day. You get one point for every serving of a fruit or vegetable you eat each day.

If you have any questions about servings sizes or how to add more freggies into your diet - check out this great SparkPeople article:
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti
on
_articles.asp?id=161


This link also gives examples of the different fruits and veggies in each group! (It's good to be colorful!)
www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/
?p
age_id=1600


Fiber is often an overlooked part of your diet - but it's important! Fiber, like protein, helps you feel full! Fiber-rich foods are freggies and whole-grains!

If you don't already have fiber added to your nutrition tracker, add it now!

Q: How can I track other nutrients to my tracker?

A: You can do this from two places.

From your Start Page, find where your calorie goals are listed towards the bottom of your My Tools section. Click the "change" link next to your calorie goal.

From your myNutrition Page, click the "Change Nutrition Goals" button at the top of the page.

Click "Add Another Nutrient to Track" and select the nutrient you want to track from the drop-down list. Click "Save Your Changes" at the bottom of the page when you are finished adding nutrients.

The above instructions are from SP Help. One note, when you first add a nutrient, the data will show up down below in the "summary" as a + sign - if you click on the + sign, it will recalculate for that day. Otherwise, it will just add what you track from that point forward.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part Three of this Challenge is Step 2 of our Improving You series: Talking to Others and Getting Support.

Talking to Others is a way to get ideas, get support, and get motivation and inspiration. Now that you've envisioned the future and set your goal, it's time to lay the foundation for change. Start to share your goal with others - either on SparkPeople, or in your "real life."

Do you have a friend, family member or coworker who's "been there, done that" and can give you some pointers?
Do you have a goal to do a 5k and need to figure out your training program?
Do you have a goal to "clean-up" your diet and need to get food or recipe suggestions for your improved meal plan?

Now's the time to gain and share knowledge! Now's the time to start building your support network!

For this challenge, earn up to 90 points for talking to others.
You will earn 30 points for talking to one person, 60 points for talking to two people, and 90 points for talking to three people about your goals.

Then, it's time to Get Support! Support comes in MANY forms. Maybe you need someone to watch the kids while you get in your workout session. Maybe you need a workout buddy to help show you the ropes in the gym. Maybe you need someone to walk or bike with you. Maybe you need someone to talk to when the "cookies/chips/demon" is calling your name. Maybe you need someone to bounce ideas off of. Maybe you need someone to check in with you and encourage you. Support can be "in real life" or over the web or phone.

This week, earn up to 100 points for your team by asking for support from two people in your life.
You will earn 50 points for each person you ask for support from this week.

We will be repeating this challenge at the end of BLC 20 so that you can see how far you've come!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As SparkGuy says, "Goals are Dreams with Deadlines," so we start this new 8-week challenge, let's all take the time to think about what we want to accomplish and why.

The second part of this week's challenge is Step 1 in our Improving You series: Envision & Set Goals

When planning for success, you've got to envision your goals, the future, and what things you can do to get there. This week, we're going to brainstorm and share ideas with our team to think about why we want to get healthy and lose weight and what are some habits we can work on to get us to our goals.

Earn 25 points for your team for joining in a discussion on your team's page to share your thoughts, goals, and ideas. (This can be done on your team's chat thread or even on the BLC Challenge Chat Thread on the 30-somethings main team page.)

Earn 25 points for completing the following statement on your challenge post: One of my primary motivations for getting healthy is:

Earn 25 points for answering the following statement on your challenge post: One major change that I can make to help myself reach my goal is:

Sample motivations: to be able to do something adventurous, to see your future grand kids grow up, to fit into that little black dress!

Sample changes: drink more water & drink less soda, to cut back on sugary snacks, to exercise regulary!

Now that you've envisioned the future, it's time to set your goal for this challenge!

A goal statement should include:
What do you want to accomplish?
When do you want to accomplish it?
Why do I want to accomplish it?
What will be your reward for accomplishing it?

Just remember, the goal statement for this challenge is not "I want to lose 12 pounds in 8 weeks." It should focus on the change(s) you just identified you could make to get healthy.

BUT...If you do put a weight loss goal in your statement, please use "at least 8 pounds" - we want everyone to reach or exceed their goal!

Earn 50 points for posting your healthy living goal for this challenge on your team's challenge thread.

Earn 25 points for writing down your healthy living goal and posting it in your house where you will see it every day (on the fridge, the bathroom mirror, the computer monitor, etc.)

Wisdom from an Ivory Soap wrapper: "Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."
