It’s the beginning of another year — that time when we all want to focus on getting healthy after another holiday season. We’ll be using the same game board style challenge that we used in our fourth quarter contest to kick off 2013. So, get yourself back on a routine, think through your goals for the next couple of months, pick your game piece and get on the board!
Create a lifestyle! Make physical activity a conscious daily event, choose fresh foods and eat consistently within your calorie window, support and gain support from a like-minded community, remain creatively inspired, gain balance and forward progression.
Move your game piece!
This game will be relative to your lifestyle! Healthy lifestyle choices will allow you to travel forward on our ten mile route. Stagnating will keep your game piece in place or even move it backward. Remember, healthy breaks are necessary but too long and you will see negative effects.
Build in a break!
- Runs January 21st through March 31st. Sign up by January 16th.
- Current Clients play for free. Non-clients pay $50 to play.
- Choose a game piece to move around the lake.
- Turn in your records every Monday.
- Remember how much you gain from community support and planning activities together. It keeps you working toward your goals, makes it more difficult to slide backwards, helps you see other people going through the same things you are and just plain builds a healthy community around you. Many of you have noted how helpful this is—so reach out to each other!
- Every 250 points will move your game piece ahead ¼ mile. Bonus moves can give you automatic ¼ or ½ mile advances. You can also lose ground and fall behind.
- Points will not rollover week to week, so aim for increments of 250.
- To receive points for supporting other players, please copy me on your emails. Supporting other contestants will help all of you to win!
Every time you cruise 2.5 miles through the Stronger U route you will have your name entered into our raffle. At the end of the contest, we will draw for a $300 gift card to Amazon. Complete the full ten miles around the lake and receive a free training session!’
Clue: Doing the minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day, meeting calorie goals just one day per week, choosing a couple of the listed food goals, plus asking for help and helping one team per week will advance you 3/4 of a mile every week. We know that you can do even better! Prove it!!
