Shrinkvivor Weekly Challenges #3

[ 18 ] 09/29/2010 |

Alright! Ready for your 3rd set of challenges? You rocked last week and immunity from today’s vote will be announced will be announced at the beginning of the Tribal Council vlog tomorrow afternoon/evening, hosted by Christy.

For this week’s fitness and non-fitness challenges, watch the video!

Yes, the fitness and non-fitness slides at the end got mixed around. Oops. Sorry.

In print, here are the challenges (they run from Thursday-Tuesday):

Non-Fitness: Eat 5 servings fruit/veggies a day. Keep drinking plenty of water and NO DRIVE-THRUS.

Fitness: Do a mile! Record your fastest mile on the weigh-in form on Wednesday. Keep trying until the Tuesday deadline! Running OR walking, as long as you are using your feet. Treadmills are okay. If someone doesn’t do the challenge, a 30:00 mile will be substituted in for them. All of the Tribe’s times will be added up and averaged for the Tribe Pace. The Tribe with the fastest pace will win immunity for next week’s tribal council!

Good luck!

If you have any questions, as always, leave them below and we will do our best to get them answered!
