Nutrition Challenge – Week 1

Posted on May 6, 2013

Week 1: Nutrition Challenge – Whoo hoo!  Note – this starts Tuesday so we are short one day this week – next week it will be a full week!

SET A goal this time: Incorporate a real 6 week goal and get it up on the brown paper at CrossFit.  Do you want to lost 5 points.  Lose 5 inches.  Get 5 unsolicited compliments, Fit into a pair of jeans hanging in closet.  Learn Good from bad Carbs, Learn to be more disciplined with cheats…choose a goal!  The more specific the goal the more likely you will achieve it!

Challenge

Start with 10 points.  And add and/or subtract based on being good or bad:)  At end of week submit Score via comments section of this post!

* Plan out 3 cheats for the week and stick to those 3.   No EXTRA or Opportunistic Cheats!  subtract 1 point for any cheat other than your 3 planned!  Even if it was your 1st cheat of the week – if it was opportunistic and not planned ahead of time it is a minus 1:(

* Every Day this week (starting Tuesday and going thru to Sunday) drink 60 oz of water and eat 4 veggies.  Every day.   Subtract 1 for each day you miss on water and each day you miss on 4 veggies.

Bonus Points:  Post something  on our CF Facebook group  about healthy eating, a recipe or anything.  Posting at least once gives you 5 extra points.  Go for a 3 mile run or walk this week and post to let us know and motivate us! That gives you another 5 points.

Max Points for the week 20 ( 10 + 5+5).

Examples on Scoring: By end of week I had one opportunistic cheat and missed water on Thursday and did not get in all 4 servings of Veggies and 60 oz of Water on Saturday.  But – I posted a recipe on FB and ran and posted a 3 mile run I did!  Score = Start with 10 – 1 (opportunistic cheat) – 1(veggie miss Thurs) – 2 (water and veggie miss on SAturday) + 5(recipe)  + 5(ran and posted  3 miles) = 16.

I WANT YOU TO REPORT YOUR SCORE FOR WEEK 1 RIGHT HERE UNDER THE WEEK 1 POST – USE COMMENTS SECTION!

  2. Lyn Perkins says:

    Do I have to be a paying member to play/ contribute? So explain what is a cheat? How big can a cheat be?

  3. Lyn Perkins says:

    Well I did not succomb to a opportunistic cheat – chocolate cake with frosting for free at work for a celebration that I was not aware of before today. It looked really good too. I had celery instead.

    I also got an unsolicited weight loss compliment today. Whoo Hoo!

    I got a total of 17! I cheated once on Saturday, and twice for my Mom on Mother’s Day, haha. Not bad cheats, but cheats nonetheless. Got 5 points for running that lovely switchback trail and posting. And another 5 for posting my dish 🙂 Not too shabby and I can say that I am down pounds already!

    3 milie walk, my first 5K = 10 pts. minus 3 pts. for 3 days of not meeting the water intake of 60 oz. and 2 extra cheats = 2 pts. Total = 15 pts.
