Challenge Updates, weeks 5 and 6!

Week 4 brought on running groups that I would not have predicted and I loved seeing how encouraging everyone was with one another. The winners for Week 4 have been  posted on the white board.

This next challenge will begin on National Healthy Eating day, November 5, and will conclude 2 weeks out, November 19.

Diet: 2 weeks of no sugar which includes: cookies, cakes, candy, ice cream, pies, and any items that include sugar in the ingredients. Acceptable sugars are fruit and 100% fruit juice. 2 weeks is a long time, but a great prep for the coming holiday and cutting out any unnecessary temptations that come along with holiday parties and office potlucks.

Physical: 2 weeks of daily core work. Some days will be a bit more challenging than others. The entire 2 weeks is designed to not burn your abs out, but definitely to push the envelope.

Just as we’ve done in prior weeks, it will be your responsibility to check in daily on the ab work and to confirm you have had a successful no sugar day. I will email by November 5 a list of each core exercise. This 2 week challenge will count as the highest scored one thus far, for a total of 14 points, or 2 points per day.

Enjoy your days off and let’s get serious on November 5!!!
