It may be our usual check in day, and we will still be doing that, but we have some exciting news to go with it. A new challenge, The Great Maintenance Challenge is starting today!
Don’t let your new jeans be too tight before you even get to wear them! Join us for The Great Maintenance Challenge that will bridge the gap between the holidays and help remind you that Moderation Is Your Middle Name. Or, at least it should be. And it will be for this challenge. Just tell your mom it’s not a legal name change or anything so she doesn’t get her feelings hurt. Really, you don’t want to hurt your mom’s feelings around the holidays!
Here are the details:
- Challenge Start Date is Wednesday, November 21st. Yes, we know it’s the day before Thanksgiving! Stop whining and remember: Moderation IS Your Middle Name. You’ve got this!
- We’ll check in each and every Wednesday. Why Wednesday? Because we feel Wednesday is a good ‘middle-ground’ day for weigh-ins. It gives you a few days to, ahem, recover from the weekend. So each Wednesday, there will be a check-in post with a form, and we’ll ask you to fill in the form with your weight (it’s totally a secret, and we won’t even tell Santa), and leave a comment telling us how well you’re living up to your (temporary) middle name.
You must do this by 9:00 p.m. Central time.
- On Thursday, there will be a leaderboard where we list all the badasses who are rocking the moderation and maintenance!
- There will be presents!! Yes, what’s a holiday challenge without presents? Each week we’ll select one person (who checks in on time) to win a great prize an EatSmart GetFit Body Fat scale AND an Active Accessories On-the-Go Pouch! We will pick one winner each week from all the participants who fill in the form on time. At the end of the challenge, one person who has checked in all five weeks on time will be randomly chosen to win a BodyMedia Fit or Core armband so they can rock our New Year’s Weight Loss Challenge (more on that later).
- The challenge will wrap up the day after Christmas Day. You know, so you can say you maintained all the way through Christmas! That will be the last Wednesday check-in, so you’ll need to make sure you stop in and share your stats. The next day we’ll post the final leaderboard (maintenance board) and announce the winner of the big present.
After you’ve wrapped up the Great Maintenance Challenge, there’s no need to stop there! We’ll be kicking off our rockin’ New Year’s Challenge on Tuesday, January 1st. You won’t want to miss it.
Okay, have we got your attention now???? Run, don’t walk to your scale and jump on. Come back and fill in the form below. Don’t forget to come back every Wednesday and fill in the same form. We have got this, girlfriends! We are going to rock this challenge. No more shrinking jeans for us!!
Big thanks to EatSmart and Active Accessories!
