Aim to Maintain: the MOTR Healthy Holidays Challenge!

So… red and green tin foil wrappers make chocolate consumption mandatory in the name of being festive, and a workout is hard to squeeze in on a day that already holds a preschool concert, dance recital, and family holiday gathering… all at the same time! I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it a little challenging to keep focused on health this month. How about a fun facebook contest to hold each other accountable?

Here’s how to participate:

Step 1: Record your weight on December 5th or whatever date you start. This is for your information only. Your goal is to earn points for healthy lifestyle activities and to maintain this weight over the next three weeks. (Let’s get real and save those weight loss goals for January!)

Step 2: Find the Facebook post announcing this contest and share with the world that you want in!

Step 3: Post a comment each weekend with your weekly points under the challenge check-in post. Watch for these December 9, 16 and 23.

Step 4: Post your total points the week after Christmas. Everyone who made it to 75 points will be entered in a drawing to win a MOTR prize pack including an embroidered gym bag and $50 MOTR gift certificate. Additional prize to our top scorer! MOTR coaches are welcome to participate. I will participate too, and if I win somebody owes me a prize. :)

Here’s how to get points! The following activities are all worth one point each:

10 minutes of cardiovascular exercise (this could be a brisk walk, gym machine, run outside, etc.)
10 minutes of strength training
5 servings of fruits and veggies in a day
Make it through a day without sweets.
8+ glasses of water in a day
7+ hours of sleep in a night

Add 10 points at the end if you maintained your weight!

Who’s in?!
