Week 1 - Personal Challenge

Thursday, August 18, 2016

I am shamelessly ripping off ideas from the Biggest Loser challenges just to add some interest to my personal 30-day challenge. These 30 days, when added to the 70 days (10 weeks) of the summer BL challenge, will bring me to an even 100 days of weight loss focus.

While I wait for the Fall BL challenge to begin, I will browse through some of the inter-team challenges and pick out some ideas to use for my own personal challenge. I think that these mini 7-day challenges are short enough to be do-able, and help break up the long slog of it all.

In the Nutrition category, for my first personal challenge, I'm using the WEEK 5 - TRACKING team challenge:

Tracking Food - Track your food for the week. Tracking will not only show you where you've gone wrong, it can help you see where you have gone right!

Track 5 days out of 7 for 5 total points. *STATUS: So far on track for August 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23... that's 6 days, more than the minimum 5

BONUS: If you stay in your calorie range for one day- add 2 points. emoticon 18 Aug

Earn all 7 points you get a 10 point bonus for a total possible 17 points!

In the Fitness category, for my first personal challenge, I'm using the WEEK 8 - PYRAMID EXERCISE team challenge:

Pyramid Exercise - Increase your activity every day. Pause when needed in between sets of reps.

Day 1- Arm exercises of choice - Just do 3, then 2, then 1. emoticon (arm lifts)
Day 2 - Lower body exercise of choice - Do 4, then 3, then 2, then 1. emoticon (squats)
Day 3 - Core exercise of choice - Do 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1. emoticon (crunches)
Day 4 - Arm exercise of choice - Do 10, then 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 emoticon (wall pushups)
Day 5 - Lower body exercise of choice - Do 15, then 10, then 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 emoticon (squats again)
Day 6 - Core exercise of choice - Do 20, then 15, then 10, then 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 emoticon (standing crunches a la Coach Nicole)
Day 7 - Rest emoticon Oh yeah, I can do this!

Earn 1 point for each day and earn 10 bonus points for all 7 days. Possible points = 17
