ELIMINATION CHALLENGE WEEK 7

WELCOME TO WEEK 7!!!! 

The teams that were in the running for “safe team” this week were Dolphins, Wolverines  and Cheetahs….from those – the team with the highest % of weight loss was the WOLVERINES.  They were the SAFE TEAM THIS WEEK!!!  WOOHOOO!!!!  AND it saved 2 of their people by being SAFE – so that was a huge bonus for them this week!!  WTG!!!

As usual lately, you guys have all been doing amazing!  It was a BRUTAL week to eliminate!  PLEASE, those of you that were eliminated, do not get discouraged and KEEP up the GREAT work!!  You are ALL on a path to your goals!  

This challenge is what it is, so I have to eliminate BUT Every One of you have been doing awesome and deserves to stay in…I just can’t keep everyone and get to the winner ;-(    And those of you that were eliminated…I hope many of you decide to stick around and continue on with your team and the challenges…you are ALWAYS welcome!!  If I ever get a decent # that do – I Will be putting up challenges where you can still help your team sometimes!  

 I have been WAY under eliminating each week – so this was a big week for eliminations…I’m SO SORRY You are ALL SUCH GREAT PEOPLE and AMAZING COMPETITORS!!!  And have all done such an AMAZING job throughout this competiton!!  DO NOT FORGET THAT!!!!  (The eliminations came down to, of course, those that didn’t complete, then the food challenge and I did have to factor in this time % of weight loss)  ;-(  This week was soooooo tough…you all did So Great!!___________________________________________________________________________

I did some combo’ing of teams this week – I ended up basing it on team leaders that I thought would meld the best instead of just the #’s – SO NEW TEAMS ARE –

MUSTANGS and PHOENIXES are now combined  (point ppl GrandmaJackie and Asces)

and

SHARKS AND CHEETAHS are now combined (point ppl Anderia, Fang19423 and EmiliaFoo)

please friend your new teammates – and TEAM LEADERS – please friend your fellow team leaders so you can all figure out how to share the work load!!  

 AND AS ALWAYS…I can NEVER thank you all enough for all your extra work that you do!!!  WITHOUT you guys I would NEVER be able to do these challenges!!___________________________________________________

The Challenge this week is still Monday thru Friday – This WILL BE a HUGE FOOD CHALLENGE WEEK!!  And it is NOT going to be easy for many of us.  I believe, especially after I first started doing the sodium challenges – that many of us only track or notice our calories and fat – and that is SO not all there is to this “getting healthy and losing weight” process!    Sooooo here you go!____________________________________________________ #1 -

WORKOUT –   Each Person must burn a minimum of 1500 Calories during the week… team #’s to follow…

Dolphins – 12,600

Sharks/Cheetahs – 18,000

Tigers & Geckos – 19,800

Mustangs/Phoenixes – 21,600

Wolverines – 23,400 

Kinda went big here since I backed off of a lot of the regular parts of the challenge…. But this is no match for all you hard core people out there!!

AND AS ALWAYS - YOUR CALORIE BURN IS ONLY COUNTED in "workout" form!  Not your everyday movement!!!  No Counting “walking to the fridge!”   Please do NOT count everything you do throughout the day!

 ___________________________________________________________________    

#2 REPS1000 reps PER PERSON during the week – don’t care what parts of the body you work – totally up to you – but would LOVE it if you worked some of your trouble zones instead of just sticking with the easy stuff…but again…up to you!  Please continue to push yourselves!  No team #’s this week.  

_____________________________________________________________________    

 #3 Skipping the HR/FR portion this week -  because I’m really focusing on food – BUT PLEASE incorporate these in your total reps for the week!  At least do SOME of you HR and FR to go towards those #’s!!!!!!!!!  Not required but I really don’t want you all to lose the momentum you’ve been gaining with these!!! 

 _________________________________________________________________________   

 #4 EXTRA MOVEMENT POINTS  - 15 PTS  per person during the week – backing off of some of the norm’s of the challenge as I want this week to be a “food focus”…something a little different – BUT do NOT want you totally backing off of your progress and some good new habits I hope you are making!____________________________________________________________________________  

If some of you saw my post that I bought a book and it gave me some great torturous ideas for this week…welllll here you go – and the book is Bob Harper (Biggest Loser) The Skinny Rules – I’ve adjusted a couple things to make it a little easier - but, for the most part, think these could be a great challenge and push in the right direction….as well as a couple things I’ve done in the past on my own…  As I said….BIG FOOD FOCUS THIS WEEK!!

#5 –   FOOD CHALLENGES               

 #1 – Drink, at least, an 8 oz glass of water BEFORE EACH MEAL!  AND another 8 oz glass of water during each meal!               

#2 – LOW CARBS after Lunch (I’ve been trying this all week and failing so good luck!  But it’s a GREAT goal!!)  The EXCEPTION to this is – if you eat carbs after lunch – they MUST BE high in Fiber (over 4 g) and any fruits or vegetables do not count against you.         (acceptable - over 4g Fiber/between 0-25g of carbs)      

#3 – yessssss sodium yet again….sorry ;-)  Stay under!               

#4 – SUBSTITUTE – Take ONE thing that you typically eat/drink that you KNOW isn’t the best thing for you and substitute it for something else – or just cut it out of your diet altogether this week! (ie: soda, salt, coffee, juice vs. fruit, chips, alcohol…etc)              

  #5 – as requested – Stay UNDER your FAT Allowance!

ALL OF THE ABOVE IS FOR 4 of the 5 DAYS – you may have 1 day break from this part of the challenge!

I will be adjusting the chart – probably tomorrow – not sure, just yet, how to track all the food stuff – but once I update the chart it will make more sense on how I want you to track – so check there for info!

ELIMINATION CHALLENGE WEEK 6

WELCOME TO WEEK 6!!!!

1st off, I want to say…I was very impressed with MANY people’s “new exercise”.  Some of you got very creative with trying something new….and I hope some of you found something new that you liked that might become a great new form of exercise for you! 

 WELLLLLLLL – This week was Extremely tough for eliminations!!  You guys did Such a Great Job!  These are the weeks that truly suck!  Other than week 2 – this was the first week I really had to get picky on the eliminations since we didn’t have very many people just drop out…..So, first off, let me say I’m Sorry! To those of you that were eliminated…Most of you did a Great Job…but, to get to that winner I gotta start chipping away at us….Even when you have a great week!  I do hope, now that we are getting down to it…that those of you that have remained dedicated to the competition will continue on with your team!  You Will get opportunities to help your team out in coming weeks if you choose to stay with us even though eliminated!

The Cheetahs and Wolverines went into week 5 with an advantage – if they had 1 person drop out they still had a shot at being “safe team”.  Wolverines had 2 drop out…so didn’t help them. 

The teams that were in the running for “safe team” this week were Dolphins, Tigers and Cheetahs….from those – the team with the highest % of weight loss was the DOLPHINS at a .95%...They were the SAFE TEAM THIS WEEK!!!  WOOHOOO!!!!

Other than those that, just didn’t finish the week, I then looked at those that gave minimal #’s to their extra team #’s and from there went to who didn’t get in their daily EM pts and had a weight gain….like I said…it was a Tough Week for eliminations!!   ____________________________________________________________________________   

As you KNOW (but I like to mention Every Week) - IF YOU ARE ELIMINATED - YOU ARE VERY MUCH ENCOURAGED to stick with your team and these challenges!  Your name will be moved to the bottom but your accomplishments will still be tracked!!  You can still achieve goals here if you wish to continue on!!!  PLEASE DO!!!!  AND as you saw a couple weeks ago – there are times when you will be able to help your team out!  

ELIMINATED PEOPLE THIS WEEK ARE:

JustJenn419 (Cheetah)________________________________________________

I will be leaving the teams as they are for 1 more week….However, most likely next week, I will be combining some of the teams – as #’s dwindle on each team – it will keep the teams a little more even.

___________________________________________________

The Challenge this week is, again,  Monday – Friday….. 

#1 - WORKOUT –   30/30/60/120 – Those are your workouts for the week!  (4 Days of workouts in those minimum time frames) 

OF the 2 / 30 minute workouts – 1 of them MUST be EITHER your New Thing from last week OR another newish thing – same rules from last week apply – doesn’t have to be totally “new” but must be something you haven’t done in a long time or something you are avoiding cuz you are a little afraid of it, or it can be totally new!  (the 120 minute workout can be done today (Sunday) or split up in a day in increments of no less than 30 minutes)

No individual Calorie burns this week…..just team #’s…so you will have to push yourself to help your team reach your goals!!  (though likely if you get in your workout times you’ll probably hit your #’s without a problem!)

TEAM #’s For the Week Are: 

 Tigers -  19,600 Calories

Wolverines – 18,200 Calories

Geckos – 16,800

Dolphins – 14,000

Mustangs, Phoenixes & Sharks – 12,600

Cheetahs – 9,800 

AND AS ALWAYS - YOUR CALORIE BURN IS ONLY COUNTED in "workout" form! Not your everyday movement!!!  No Counting “walking to the fridge!”   Please do NOT count everything you do throughout the day! 

___________________________________________________________________    

#2 REPS200 EACH of Upper Body, Lower Body, Core AND Cardio – for a total of 800 Reps – Must Do 200 Of EACH of the body sections!

No Team #’s this week 

 _____________________________________________________________________    

 #3 For your HR & FR this week.... 4 Days this week …..  

Downing this from last week – to add 1.5 x your FR –  MUST BE DONE IN 1 SESSION (so if your FR is 50 Crunches  - you need to do 75) 

For you HR -  ADD 1 more  to what you did last week (+5)!  *****Or a partial if you have something like below…. 

(however, if your hard rep is something like Pull up/chin ups – that’s usually not possible – would like those of you that have those -  to add  1 (one) to yours – and  you Can break that up in a day.) 

And for those that have planks (or something like planks) – add 5 seconds to your hold time and add 1 more plank to your quantity 

 _________________________________________________________________________   

#4 EXTRA MOVEMENT POINTS  - Strictly Team #’s this week….so I will be looking at how everyone contributes to the team….

Tigers – 375

Wolverines – 350

Geckos – 325

Dolphins – 275

Mustangs, Phoenixes, Sharks – 250

Cheetahs – 200  

____________________________________________________________________________  

#5 –   FOOD CHALLENGE

Gonna Do It Again!!   Now that you’ve got the hang of it ;-)

4 – 5 of the 5 days – you must stay UNDER your sodium allotment – 2500 mg for Everyone!   Stillllll Shoot for all 5 days!!!  But you may have a “freebie” if you need it!

Report your Sodium Mg each day – it will go up on the chart!  Since I believe that 2500 is a universal  # for everyone it will be easy to see if you’ve gone over or under!  

In Addition….(had a request from someone) gonna also track your CARBS!  Must stay under your allotted carbs,  4 out of the 5 days – again shoot for all 5 days – but you get a “freebie” – for this you’ll just report “over” or “under” as carbs change with your workouts….up to you if you want to eat your increased carbs (due to workouts)….I’m no dietitian and things seem to work differently for different people… 

 _____________________________________  

WEEKEND MINI CHALLENGE!!!

BURN 500 Calories in some form of Exercise combined for Saturday and Sunday – do some form of exercise on both days!

Stay under your calories on at least 1 of the 2 days!

TRY and stay under your SODIUM and your CARBS Allotment ALL 7 (seven) DAYS!!!__________________________________________________________________  

Good Luck in Week 6!   You guys have ALL (including eliminated people) done amazing jobs!!  Keep up the great work and great momentum!!  You WILL achieve your goals!! 

ELIMINATION CHALLENGE - WEEK 5

WELCOME TO WEEK 5!!!! 

I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A HUGE THANK YOU to kr3851 and Anderia FOR ALL THEIR Help this week!!  I Could NOT have done it without you guys!!   I know you have busy lives, as well, and you really stepped up to help me and the challenge to continue smoothly!  Cannot tell you enough how I appreciate not having to worry about this while I was gone!!  I knew you “had it”!! You Guys are Awesome!___________________________________________________________________________

Wellll I Must Say…you guys POWERED thru that Face Off Challenge!  WOW!!!  Some of the #’s that went up were CRAZY  AWESOME!

AS it stands…The 2 teams that will go in to week 5 with an advantage are….. Cheetahs and Wolverines!  GREAT JOB!!!   Though EVERYONE Did a GREAT Job!!  (for the rest of the teams in each bracket – 1 had a higher rep # OR higher EM pts but not both) – (and yes I took into consideration teams with different #’s and averaged it out) 

SOOOOO  Cheetahs and Wolverines…for Week 5 – IF you have 1 (only good for 1)  person drop out or Not complete the challenge – that person WILL still be eliminated BUT the rest of the team still has a SHOT at being safe if the rest of the team completed the challenge and you have the highest % of loss out of the others that are in the running.

 ____________________________________________________________________________  

Sadly AGAIN…had enough people drop out this week that a Safe Team isn’t really necessary…so instead we will call them the  #1 TEAM for WEEK 4….WAS……wellll there’s 2  The TIGERS and the WOLVERINES!  They both have a large # of people STILL on their TEAMS and STILL they all completed the Challenge!  GREAT JOB!!!   Since it’s not a “safe team” issue this week, I didn’t go to the % of loss to pick one – you BOTH deserve a BIG Congrats for your TEAMS doing SO Great!!  KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!______________________________________________________________________________

OHHH BTW – THE TIGERS AND WOLVERINES ARE KICKING SOME SERIOUS A$$$$$ - LET’S GO TEAMS…Time to TAKE them DOWN!!!  ________________________________________________________________________________

As you KNOW (but I like to mention Every Week) - IF YOU ARE ELIMINATED - YOU ARE VERY MUCH ENCOURAGED to stick with your team and these challenges!  Your name will be moved to the bottom but your accomplishments will still be tracked!!  You can still achieve goals here if you wish to continue on!!!  PLEASE DO!!!!  AND as you saw this week – there are times when you will be able to help your team out!   Mamaclose was able to help out her team this week…and that team KILLED the Face Off Challenge #’s!  WTG!!!!

____________________________________

AND I will be putting up your weekend mini challenge this week!  Finally!  NOT gonna mess up team #’s….NOT gonna blow your chances for “safe team” – just something EXTRA for you to strive for…and bragging rights…. and might help your weigh in the following week.  If any of you are like me…I do great all week long (usually) and spend the next week trying to make up for how I screwed up on the weekend…which is probably why I’m in a plateau…Hopefully this might help some of you!________________________________________________________________________________  

#1 - WORKOUT –   Each person Must burn 800 Calories – kept it low this week – but the team #’s will be high – so I expect you to all dig deep like you did for the “face off” challenge and Really give it your all to contribute…Will be looking at who is really trying to help the Team this week!  (That doesn’t mean you have to have the highest #’s – just show your dedication to your team and yourself!) 

TEAM #’s For the Week Are: 

Tigers - MUST ACHIEVE -  28,800 Calories

Wolverines – MUST ACHIEVE – 27,000 Calories

Geckos - MUST ACHIEVE - 23,400 Calories

Mustangs and Phoenixes – MUST ACHIEVE – 21,600 Calories

Sharks  – MUST ACHIEVE – 19,800 Calories

Dolphins – MUST ACHIEVE – 18,000 Calories

Cheetahs – MUST ACHIEVE – 16,200 Calories

 *****In Addition  you MUST do something Newish – Does NOT have to be something you’ve Never done – but must be out of the Realm of your Normal Workout!  Maybe a new machine, workout video or class!   Can be something you’ve never done or done and feel is too hard or don’t particularly like…well this week you get to do it!!  You Must dedicate at least  20 minutes to the thing you choose and let us know what it is!!  (And whatever calories you burn during it DO count towards your weekly calories!)

AND AS ALWAYS - YOUR CALORIE BURN IS ONLY COUNTED in "workout" form! Not your everyday movement!!!  No Counting “walking to the fridge!”   Please do NOT count everything you do throughout the day! ___________________________________________________________________   

#2 REPS

600 of any combo of reps you choose for each person during the week – Upper body, Lower Body, Cardio and/or Core

Team #’s Are:

Tigers – 14,400 Reps

Wolverines – 13,500 Reps

Geckos – 11,700 Reps

Mustangs & Phoenixes – 10,800 Reps

Sharks – 9,900 Reps

Dolphins – 9,000 Reps

Cheetahs – 8,100 Reps

 _____________________________________________________________________   

 #3 For your HR & FR this week.... 3 Days this week …..

you need to DOUBLE your FR – Can be split during the day in no more than 2 sessions

You need to add 5 to your HR – again, can be split during the day in no more than 2 sessions –

(however, if your hard rep is something like Pull up/chin ups – that’s usually not possible – would like those of you that have those -  to add  1 (one) to yours – and  you Can break that up in a day.

And for those that have planks (or something like planks) – add 5 seconds to your hold time and add 2 (two) planks to your quantity

 _________________________________________________________________________  

#4 EXTRA MOVEMENT POINTS – Each person Must have 4 EM points EACH OF THE 5 DAYS!!  So you are gonna HAVE to make it happen!! 

These, like reps, do not take a lot of time – but do take the dedication to search out ways to “move a little more!” during the day.FIND Something EACH day that you can do EXTRA!    No Team #’s this week for this.

____________________________________________________________________________ 

#5 –   FOOD CHALLENGE

As I said above, I would like you to achieve this all 5 days – but Monday will not go against you if you don’t, as I know people must sometimes plan ahead for food and I’ve given you No extra time to do that since the challenge is going up so late on Sunday.

Back by Popular Demand (probably not really)…SODIUM! 

There is TOO Much Sodium in almost everything we eat and MANY don’t realize it!  It contributes to weight gain, retaining water, clogged arteries, and just generally not really good for you in excess! 

4 – 5 of the 5 days – you must stay UNDER your sodium allotment – which I believe is 2500 mg for Everyone! 

You can change what you track on MFP – so if you don’t have sodium as one of your tracked items please change it, for at least this week.   If you do not know how to do that – ask your team leaders – if they are unsure – than ask me.

Report your Sodium Mg each day – it will go up on the chart!  Since I believe that 2500 is a universal  # for everyone it will be easy to see if you’ve gone over or under!   

_____________________________________ 

WEEKEND MINI CHALLENGE!!!

Stay Within 200 Calories of your allotted calories on BOTH Weekend Days!

BURN 500 Calories in some form of Exercise combined for Saturday and Sunday

Workout for AT LEAST 20 Minutes ON BOTH WEEKEND DAYS!!

TRY and stay under your Sodium Allotment ALL 7 (seven) DAYS!!!__________________________________________________________________ 

REMEMBER

- NOTHING YOU DO CAN BE COUNTED IN 2 CATEGORIES OF THE CHALLENGE! NO DOUBLE COUNTING THINGS!!   

Good Luck in Week 5! YOU GUYS Are AMAZING!!   BE PROUD OF WHAT YOU’VE ACCOMPLISHED THUS FAR!!!  ONLY MORE LOSING FROM HERE ON OUT!!! 

ELIMINATION CHALLENGE WEEK 4

FIRST OFF The SAFE TEAM FOR THE WEEK was.....The WOLVERINES!!!   EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM DID AN  AMAZING  JOB!!!

This week, however, awesome you guys all are….enough people did drop out or not complete the challenge as to make my life less dreadful!  I don’t have to eliminate based on weight loss or not as high participation (though everyone seems to have gone WELL ABOVE AND BEYOND the minimum!) this week!     

ALSO, AS I'VE STATED in the past - IF YOU ARE ELIMINATED - YOU ARE VERY MUCH ENCOURAGED to stick with your team and these challenges!  Your name will be moved to the bottom but your accomplishments will still be tracked!!  You can still achieve goals here if you wish to continue on!!!  PLEASE DO!!!!

 ________________________________________________

I thought I was going to have to change the challenge days – but I have enough help that we are just gonna keep it the same – Monday – Friday!  I know this is Mother’s Day weekend coming up and I have read that some leaders may be out of town – as well as I will be until Saturday night! 

SOOOOO while the challenge is Monday – Friday – You still must get your information in on Friday anytime or Saturday morning by 10am pst  

 BUT TEAM LEADERS have until Saturday night to get the info to me.  IF YOUR TEAM LEADERS NEED YOUR STUFF IN EARLIER – You will NEED to get it to them EARLIER OR make arrangements to send it to me direct (as long as there is not an overwhelming amount, I can post the stuff on Saturday night when I get back….

Just an FYI – the WEEK 5 challenge will probably not go up until Sunday since I’ll be out of town  till then.  _____________________________________________________________________________________

TEAM LEADERS – AS I will be gone for my papa’s funeral – (as most of you know and have SO wonderfully expressed thoughts and prayers, of which I am forever grateful!). 

I have 2 WONDERFUL people that are doing a lot of the work for me while I’m gone this week.   Kr3851 and Anderia

SOOOOOOO  Your weigh-in’s need to be sent (this week only) to the following people:

TEAM – Dolphins, Tigers, Wolverines, Geckos – you will message your weigh ins to - kr3851

TEAM - Mustangs, Phoenixes, Sharks, Cheetahs – you will message your weigh ins to - Anderia

Please TEAM LEADERS friend them and message them if you have any questions about sending weigh in’s  – ALSO if you have any challenge questions for you or your teammates that come up  that immediately need to be answered Wednesday – Saturday – you can message them and they can “make the call” while I’m unavailable those days only –

However,  Today through Tuesday I WILL be available to answer questions.  _____________________________________________________________________________________

I SWEAR I’m gonna have a weekend mini challenge but with all that’s going on and it being Mother’s Day weekend…probably Not the best time to start that!.......soooo we’re gonna shoot for next week!______________________________________________________________  

WEEK 3 CHALLENGE……hahahaha you guys killin’ the #’s only makes me push you harder!!!!!

As its stands….

The Dolphins have 12 ppl

Cheetahs have 10 ppl

_______________________________

The Sharks have 14 ppl

Mustangs have 13 ppl

__________________________________

The Geckos and Phoenixes have 15 ppl

___________________________________

The Tigers have 16 ppl

The Wolverines have 15 ppl + 1 Elminated player for face off challenge

_________________________________________________________

You are gonna fight for something this  week!  SINCE there are 2 teams in each bracket… YES I SCREWED THAT UP!  But still gonna happen with revisions....

FACE OFF SIDE CHALLENGE -    

 IF there is a team in EACH bracket that has a HIGHEST # for Cardio/Core  REPS   AND   EM pts – then that team gets a “bi” for 1 person in WEEK 5.  Meaning….to be in the running for “safe team” you have to have EVERY PERSON on your team complete the challenge.  IF EVEN 1 drops out that ruins your chances.   So if you only have 1 person drop out or not complete the challenge WEEK 5 (and as you have seen…it happens – especially as we move in deeper in the competition) then you can still have a shot at being “safe team” for the rest of you.  THAT person that didn’t complete the challenge will be dropped, however – but that usually puts everyone else in danger. 

Sooo 4 teams have a SHOT at this HELPING them be SAFE if they beat out their opponent in Reps AND EM pts  

 (I’m sure I’m gonna get questions on this cuz its new….please, at least, field them through your team leaders so they can answer or consolidate).

You ARE doing this in Week 4 FOR Week 5 – so yes some of you will end up eliminated before you get to benefit…but you don’t know…so Work for it!!!   And if you end up eliminated before you benefit – YOU MAY have helped your team out to be safe!__________________________________________________________________________________

#1 - WORKOUT –   5 miles…..and 1500 calories (and YES your miles COUNT in your Calories)

Each person must burn a minimum of 1500 Calories BUT you also MUST achieve 5 miles during the week! 

I have been lax in the past…but it’s spring/summer for most of us soooo no dice this time around!  You MUST DO THE MILES!!!!  NO SUBSTITUTING!!!  SOOO Anything that would cover distance exercisewise counts!  You Do NOT have to actually go walk 5 miles….Swimming, rowing, treadmill, walking, jogging, running,  stair climbing, biking, climbing, ellyptical COUNTS –

but you CANNOT convert gardening, aerobics, dancing,  jumping jacks,  jump rope, or housework into miles…I won’t allow that this time around so please don’t ask – figure something out!    

And just a helpful hint…biking is the quickest way to achieve  miles – but by no means the ONLY! 

 Also there is one video that I know of (there may be more so post if you know) “Walking away the Pounds” – I’ve never done it – but I know its something that can be gauged by a pedometer (or even the video may have distance traveled) that can be used.  

TEAM #’s ARE gonna be in miles AND Calories this week:

Cheetah - MUST ACHIEVE - 70 Miles - 20,000 Calories 

Dolphins – MUST ACHIEVE – 84 Miles – and 24,000 Calories

Mustangs - MUST ACHIEVE - 91 Miles - and 26,000 Calories

Sharks  – MUST ACHIEVE – 98 Miles – and 28,000 Calories

Geckos, Phoenixes and Wolverines  – MUST ACHIEVE – 105 Miles – and 30,000 Calories

Tigers – MUST ACHIEVE – 112 Miles – and 32,000 Calories 

AND AS ALWAYS - YOUR CALORIE BURN AND YOUR MILES - IS ONLY COUNTED in "workout" form! Not your everyday movement!!!  No Counting “walking to the fridge!”   Please do NOT count everything you do throughout the day! ___________________________________________________________________  

#2 REPS

This week your Cardio and Core reps will be combined – (do one or the other or both)  that is what will count toward the mini competition between teams above! 

Because of the side competition….you are going to have to find it within yourself to do what you can to help your team…I’m Not going to regulate those this week.  (BUT REMEMBER YOU MUST DO Right AND Left Side of any exercise that is one sidedfor it to count as 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!) 

 You will also need to do 200 Upper body and 200 Lower Body Reps during the week (those will NOT count toward the face off challenge – They are just required!)  Upper – arms, chest, back -    Lower – butt, and any part of the legs) 

_____________________________________________________________________  

#3 For your HR & FR this week.... You NEED to do JUST your core #’s  3 of the 5 days!  Because of the faceoff side challenge I EXPECT to see A LOT of cardio and core reps this week – so I’m gonna leave this mild and just have you do your minimum #’s  on 3 of the Days!

 #4 EXTRA MOVEMENT POINTS –

Again Here NOT regulating this week…..this goes towards the faceoff challenge so you need to bring your “A” game and push yourself to do things you Would NOT ordinarily do!!  I find just running up and down my stairs on commercials is quite a mini workout and makes me feel less guilty about sitting watching tv! or parking in the lot next to the store I want to go to etc…!  DO THINGS  LIKE THAT and you will help yourself and your team!!  BUT BE HONEST!!  Do NOT USE Points for things you would always do – and NO part of your workouts count here!

#5 – And there’s gonna be a #5 this week  ;-)   FOOD

I’m gonna start low and easy here – but its good to work it….Eat 2 servings of Fruits/Veggies EVERY DAY – of course some of you already do this…but for many this WILL Be A Challenge!!

____________________________________________________________________________

REMEMBER - NOTHING YOU DO CAN BE COUNTED IN 2 CATEGORIES OF THE CHALLENGE! NO DOUBLE COUNTING THINGS!!  

Good Luck in Week 4! YOU GUYS Are AMAZING!! BLOWING ME AWAY with what you’ve done sooo far!!
