11 WEEK ELIMINATION CHALLENGE - WEEK 3 CHALLENGE BLOG Welcome Everyone to WEEK 3
1st Off - ANYONE who's weighing in with a + or - instead of their actual weight...I cannot accept that. YOU NEED to either message me direct or your team leader with your ACTUAL weight for weigh in! I have too many people who are doing different challenges and weighing in on different days for other challenges and think they are up or down and the actual #'s for this challenge are different - I even have some that listed both and their #'s are still different - so I need that actual weight - TEAM LEADERS...if you know of anyone on your team that did that please contact them and get actual weights for week 2 and send them to me, as well as let them know for the future! THANK YOU
Everyone did a GREAT job in Week 2! I'm hoping you are all getting to know your teams now! USE them for support! That's what they are there for!
I KNOW a LOT of people were sick this week...which makes the eliminations that much harder, because I know given the circumstances for some it was VERY difficult if not impossible for some to finish the challenge. AND in the previous challenge I tried to be lenient when possible - HOWEVER This time around there are just too many people for me to be able to do that and still get the "WINNER" at the end of 11 weeks. Sooooo, that said....I didn't choose a safe team this week, as the only people eliminated were those that couldn't complete the challenge.
For Eliminations - those that don't complete the challenge - I will have to eliminate each week - Those that don't have their #'s and weigh in posted on time will be eliminated - and In future weeks I will be looking to those that just gave the bare minimum - to be eliminated and then I will look to % of weightloss last (until it gets down toward the end). There were 5 eliminations this week - most weeks however, will have closer to 10.
AGAIN....BASIC RULES -
#1 – the Challenge MUST be completed and posted on time and
#2 weigh in must come in on time!
Week 2 Eliminations are:
If you are eliminated - you are WELCOME to stay with your team and continue on through the challenge - your #'s won't count for your team but if it helps you stay motivated and the help and support of your team works for you, by all means continue doing the challenge and reporting your #'s!!!! As weeks go on - some of those that decide to stay and continue on May have a chance to get back in the "game" towards the end - though I haven't ironed out details yet.

TEAM 1: DOLPHINS
Sheri869 – TEAM LEADER

RULES FOR SAFE TEAM (in the future) each week (until the last couple of weeks) – Your entire team CAN ACHIEVE that goal ONLY by…..#1 EVERY PERSON on the team MUST COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE! #2 ALL THE TEAM TOTALS ARE MET! #3 ALL INFO AND WEIGH IN’S ARE POSTED ON TIME!! If there is more than 1 team that this happens for then it goes to the highest % of weight loss for the entire team. Then your entire team is SAFE from Elimination! If no team achieves this then all participants are up for elimination.
THE CHALLENGE this week RUNS MONDAY - FRIDAY again so only post your workouts toward the challenge for those days. Of course anything you do on the weekends may not help you for the challenge BUT it certainly will for your weigh in and they do come in to play for eliminations too!
The Challenges will mostly run Monday thru Friday unless I specifiy otherwise (which does happen periodically)
______________________________________________________________ WEEK 3 CHALLENGE
#1 - WORKOUT
Each person must do At LEAST 8 Miles throughout the week
HOWEVER TOTAL TEAM #'s are as follows:
Phoenixes and Sharks - TEAM Miles Minimum - 74 Miles
Wolves, Tigers & Cheetas - TEAM Miles Min - 84 Miles
Foxes & Jaguars - TEAM Miles Min - 94 Miles
Dolphins - 104 Miles
THESE MILES can be achieve any way you want! You can row them, bike them, elyptical them, swim, walk, run, And yes "walking away the pounds" (or whatever like that) counts - just figure out a way to gauge your miles. (hint - biking is probably the quickest way to get miles) - You May Do Any Combo of Anything you'd like throughout the week to achieve this!
This Week we are going to go for “CARDIO"
Each Person MUST Do at least 300 Cardio Reps – Anything "rep" like that involves your WHOLE Body and heart rate getting up. Jumping Jacks are my best example - however those are tough for some - so stair step or squat that involves your arms going up and down to keep you whole body in it - are acceptable - you can get creative here if need be - but make sure your arms AND legs are involved!
And still must be done in a minimum of 25 reps at a time to count - This doesn't mean you have to do sets of 25 - you can do 27 or 45 and it counts - but if you do just 22....nope doesn't count towards your reps!
TEAM TOTALS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Phoenixes & Sharks - 3200
Wolves, Tigers & Cheetahs - 3700
Jaguars & Foxes - 4200
Dolphins - 4600
#3 DIFFICULT REP's I said I was going to be building on this….
SAME AS LAST WEEK Quantity wise - EXCEPT you will do them again on At Least 4 days of the week and you will do an EXTRA set of whatever is your max on 2 of the days. You can do them consecutive or 1 set in the morning and 1 in the evening...etc.
These are something that take dedication but does NOT take a lot of time so I expect everyone can find a couple minutes in their day to get these in!_____________________________________________________________
#4 EXTRA MOVEMENT POINTS
I believe you all get this now and what I’m looking for….So this week Each Person Needs to get at least 10 point
Phoenixs, Sharks, Wolves, Tigers, Cheetahs - Need to achieve at least 120 Pts for your teams TOTAL!
Dolphins, Jaguars & Foxes - Need to achieve at least 140 pts for you team TOTAL!
#5 PERSONAL / FOOD CHALLENGE
As I'm sure everyone is aware or becoming aware - sodium is in Everything and theres a lot more of it in things than most of us realized at one time. It's terribly unhealthy for many reasons.
Track your sodium (if you aren't already) and STAY UNDER Your allotted amount for 3 of the days - this WILL require pre-planning your meals. I'd like everyone to try and stay under for all 5 days but I know sometimes we have commitments outside of our everyday life that make that tough to track.
GOOD LUCK ALL IN WEEK 3
