Week 1 Winner: Click here
New Year’s resolutions don’t need to just start and end in January. We want to make fitness and weight loss in 2011 fun and motivating. In January we did the iTunes Gift Card giveway for posting runs on Twitter and answering fitness trivia questions on Facebook. In February we wanted to try something a little different. Getting fit doesn’t happen over night and if you are interested in making a commitment to a true life style change than it can take months or even years to get results.
Everyone has a different idea of what they want to look and feel like, but everyone wants to be healthy. The February Fitness Challenge will help you adapt a new healthy concept each week. Every new week starting on Sunday I will post a new challenge. Every week after that we will build on each week’s previous challenge making sure that by the end of the month we have kept up with each weekly challenge.
Below are the challenges to help you get your mind and body focused on what’s up ahead. We want everyone to succeed and accomplish each task. We are in on this together.
Week 1: No night time snacks at least 2 hours before bedtime. Ideally no eating after 7 pm.
Week 2: Drinking water and more of it!
Week 3: Exercise 30 minutes a day 5 days a week.
Week 4: Fruits and veggies.
Everyone who joins is already a winner, but adding prizes will only make it more fun and motivating.
The challenge will begin weekly on Sunday mornings at 7am (EST) and will end the following Sunday at 7am. The challenge will begin January 30th and end February 27th at 7am (EST). Each Sunday at 7am I will post the challenge on Twitter, Facebook, and our blog. You can join us at anytime during the month. All you need to do is post a comment(s) on the blog post for that week. Only comments posted on the blog will be counted towards a prize. I will randomly select a winner from those posts. Weekly challenge winners will be announced on Monday mornings. You can post as many times as you like, but only one entry will be counted. Get your friends involved and let’s help each other get healthier.
Each week we will be awarding one challenge winner and each week we will have a different prize.
At the end of the month we will award one winner a Grand prize gift. To be eligible you would need to have entered at least one blog comment on each of the four challenges.
There really is no way for us to know if you’ve honestly completed the February challenge for the Grand Prize. We are going to be going by the honor system. Please post comments on the blog if you truly completed the challenges. Let’s not prevent someone who is trying to complete the February Fitness Challenge from winning.
