Prizes and Points System

Hi Ladies, 

I am ready to share with you the New Year's 30 day Challenge!

 I believe that you can change in 30 days. I have done it, losing 20 inches in 30 days back when I first started. Plus, I believe, all things are possible, in God's strength.

I have a lot of motivation this year. I am turning 40! I believe we can meet our goals together. It is so important to surround yourself with encouragement and motivation. 

Now you're on board! Let's talk more motivation. 

Our point system:

30 min. of exercise = 1 point  (max. 2 pts for 60 min.) 
2 liters/quarts of water or 1/2 your body weight in oz. = 1 point
HEP = 2 point (Healthy Eating Plan) 
Posting = 1 point ( 3 posts max. per week/min. of 1 post a week to be eligable for prizes)
1 pound lost = 1 point (.5 kilo 1 point) 
1 inch lost = 1 point (2cm = 1point)

1st prize for one overall winner in points. - Plexus product of choice! 

2nd prize for overall weight and inches lost.- $10 gift card

Learn how to measure HERE. Measurments are so necessary, because you lose inches before you lose pounds.

Exercise!!! - Yes, it very important in my opinion. We get 1 point for every 30 minutes of
 exercise. (5-10 minutes stretching counts as part of your 60 min. time.) You may split up your time in intervals of 10 minutes, no less. 

This includes any exercise which raises your heart rate. Intense walking and intense house cleaning are included.
 I recommend increments of 15 minutes with 5 minutes of stretching at the end. Remember, you may do more activity than an hour, but we only get points for the first 60 minutes of exercise. Let's make them count. 

The reason for the maximum limit is so that we are doing more intense workouts. I recomend a mixture of weight training and cardio workouts. Mike Chang´s six pack short cuts and Jillian Michael´s videos (all on You Tube) are excellent for this. You may do walking videos like those by Leslie Sansone, pilates or yoga, but they must be continual, without a lot of resting. The key is purposeful exercise to burn calories and tone our muscles. Toned muscles burn fat and increase metabolism! 

HEPHealthy Eating Plan - if followed = 2 pt You should post what your HEP will be for accountability in your first post on our FB group or a link to your own blog.  If you keep to your HEP each day, it is 2 points! If you blow it, you just don´t count the points for the day. 

*** One Free day is allowed and counts as your HEP points and for 1 exercise point ( not water nor posts).*** 

Posts/ Participation -  This is my favorite part of the challenge. I love all the interaction and encouragement! Most importantly, we uplift one another to be the best we can be. I believe that we were made by a Creator who wants us to serve Him with all that we have. When we post inspiration and what we are learning, we are helping each other to reach our goals!

Posts and Journaling
 You may choose one of 4 ways:

1- E-mail your journal to me,
2- post on our private FB page 
3 -blog on your own blog linking to Faith Fitness and Fun blog. (must let me know)
4- blog directly on our  Faith Fitness and Fun blog. (must be invited)

Your introduction post for the first week 
should include-  Info about yourself, a picture, goals, definitely your HEP, and maybe measurements if you want to share. This is totally up to you how much you feel comfortable sharing. 

 Post/ Journaling Ideas - 
-Some post their measurments as a first journal post. 
- Post about your exercise for the last couple of days.
-Post about your food choices.

You are allowed two tips a week. They may fall under diet tips, fitness tips, humor about fitness and diet, and inspirational tips. The lables are in the label section in the blog editor if you are blogging. 

**You are only allowed 3 posts a week for points but, you may post more. They just do not count for points.**

**We must CHECK IN with point totals at least once a week to qualify for the prizes, unless you have let me know ahead of time. **

I am sure there will be questsions. Please don't hesitate to ask. These challenges have helped me greatly through the years. If you stick with it and create a HEP you can live with everyday, you can truly get in shape in a month. I am at it with you! 

Don't forget to start with prayer, praying over how God would have you get control over your eating and exercising. Realize that God is our greatest strength and He wants us to be our best for His glory.
