It´s that time! We all are getting geared up for the holidays. I know, Thanksgiving is first, but for some reason my mind just jumped straight to Christmas. Then my mind went to New Years. Then to last years New Year´s goals. This past January, I set a goal, which I have not met yet. It may seem compulsive to some, but to me it´s a new handle on life. My fitness journey started with a prayer, developing into a joy and a new lease on life. I would love for others to enjoy this as well.
This is why I present to you the...
I am getting so excited about this. Already there are more than 10 ladies interested. Yes, It is a ladies only private blog. Now aren´t you interested???? Wouldn´t you like to get fit and know you are getting healthier for your family and for your service to Jesus??? Well, you can!
Let me explain.
When will it take place?
This challenge will run from October 28 till December 23, at which time I will award the 1st place winner with a $15 online gift certificate and the 2nd and 3rd place winners with $5 online gift certificates. All participants will also receive an e-certificate with the amount of points earned on their Christmas Crunch!
How do you earn points?
There will be 5 catagories:
weight - 1 point for every pound lost
inches/cm - 2 points for every inch lost and 1 point for ever centimeter lost. (which ever you choose to measure in)
Posting - one point for ever post you make
Exercise - 1 point for every 20 minutes of exercise you do.
Healthy diet tips and recipes - 1 point for the post and 1 point for the tip or recipe in that post (only possible 2pts here).
Now, I probably won´t be able to keep track of it all. REALLY?! ? So you will be set up with your own tracker on the blog. You sign on and adjust your points accordingly. I will try to monitor it all as well. (no cheaties, ladies)
It would be great if we all could get to know each other before the kick off so I will be inviting and opening up the blog to you all soon for introductions and more instructions. I will be posting some diet information if you do not have a plan to follow as of yet. Posting will not count till Wednesday October 28, though.
Any questions please feel free to ask away. This is a topic I am growing to love! Keeping fit and healthy is a goal for life, not just in our 20s and 30s. So why not start now!
Let this Christmas be a Christmas that you remember for a lifetime, not only because you feel healthier but because of the One who gave you the strength to achieve your goals.
Let´s Crunch it, ladies!
