Week SEVEN of our Living Fit Winter Challenge

We are mid-week SEVEN of our winter challenge!  Only about ten+ days to go!

Don’t forget to log your calendar points.  Here are some weekly reminders…

  • Double Calendar Points = No sweets and/or no alcohol. In week three, you had to choose between the two, but this week you can earn double in BOTH! Remember, you do get a cheat day (so don’t count points on day seven), but you can earn 120 points in this category alone!
  • Bonus Challenges [Double week!  100 points MAX]
    • Attend a FIT event [25 points]
      • Thurs FIT Book Club
      • The Local Spot Yoga event on Saturday with lululemon polaris @ Zest
      • Bend Active events Saturday with Rachel Kerr [Power Vinyasa] or Rachel Wilson [barre-OM]
    • Log more miles or mat minutes than last week [25 points]
    • EAT CLEAN challenge – see “RULES” below
      • Follow Rules six days [100 points] or
      • Follow Rules five days [75 points] or
      • Follow Rules four days [50 points]

In addition to our double calendar points for no sweets, we wanted to take on the challenge of making better ‘diet’ choices.  We created a MODIFIED CLEAN challenge because most of us work 40-50+ hours a week, have children, are BUSY… food prep and eating 100% clean is sometimes not an option!  We are just looking to make good choices, we are not detoxing or cleansing or trying out for bikini contests.  🙂  It should be a bit challenging, but doable!

“Modified” Living Fit Eat Clean Challenge  RULES

#lfceatclean2015

  • No sugary/fake overly-processed/packaged foods (sugar-laden granola bars & oats, fruit snacks, desserts, GMOs, etc ~ put down that chocolate!)
  • CAN have ‘clean’ packaged foods, just try to limit.  Think no GMOs, low sugar (10g or less), low sodium, etc ~ protein shakes, almond milk, Fage greek yogurt, even milk is on this list (although if you’re looking for quick results, eliminating dairy will help!)
  • Try to fill up on veggies!  Eat 2-3+ servings veggies per day. More if you can.  Like until you think you can’t eat one more veggie.  The benefits of vegetables are countless ~ antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, water content, fiber, cancer prevention… read more HERE.
  • Eat lean protein; healthy meats, tofu, beans ~ and clean supplements; protein shakes, almond milk, PB2, coconut milk… read more HERE.
  • Eat 2 (no more than 3) servings fruit per day.  If you prefer to have 3 bananas and 2 apples for breakfast [Lan], thats ok, as long as you burn it off.  Training for a marathon?  Then eat away. 🙂
  • Try to avoid foods with added sugar and high sugar ratios. If it has more than 10g per serving, try something else!  Even some packaged fruits (raisins, craisins, etc) have a lot of sugar.
