Trick Or Treat Challenge - October Goals

Monday, October 04, 2010

Goals for October - I have pledged within my ((((~PoSiTiVe ViBeS~)))) team to lose 8 pounds and complete 1000 fitness minutes.

My plan is to increase my fitness minutes and try to keep within my calorie ranges, increasing my water and fruits/veggies. I also want to help my team to reach our goals with the challenge below!

If you'd like to follow along, the information is at:

The Challenge is simple. Each team will complete 3 tricks and 3 treats daily. NO MORE, NO LESS. It is important for teams to discuss what task they wish to complete as to not do the same tricks and treats. Make sure you are doing something other then your team mates and vice versa. This is to keep the points rotating and constantly challenging ourselves and each other. If a team mate is sick or unable to do something the team can step up and do the needed tasks if they wish to do so but not necessary. There is no penalty for not completing the tasks, just no points for the team. A team is for communication, support and making sure that your team is on track. Let's push a little harder this month, give a little more of ourselves. Make this a CHALLENGE for yourself or keep it simple but be ACCOUNTABLE not only to yourself but to your team. Now let's have some fun.

    Sounds great! It's good to include the vitamins because we do need the D and calcium for sure. I'll have to add that as a personal goal.
