Don't Gain--Maintain Holiday Challenge!!

The Challenge:
Don't gain weight during the 2010-2011 holiday season (thanksgiving to new years) but maintain where you are through healthy eating habits, accountability and movement!  

The Details: 
The average person gains SEVEN pounds over the holidays. 
NOT on Fit this, Girl! 

Track your starting weight in the Google Document linked HERE and below between MONDAY November 22nd and FRIDAY November 26th (THIS WEEK). Then weigh in again JANUARY 1-6th to see your success--not simply for loss, but to MAINTAIN over the course of that holiday season. 

Grab the picture above and share on Facebook, on your blog, email the link to friends--get others involved to be accountable for their own healthy habits and eating during a very decadent time of the year! 

The Prizes: YES, Prizes!
A case of 12 Chobani greek yogurt--either their Club pack: strawberry, Blueberry and Peach or a case (12) of your favorite flavor!  Thanks Chobani for helping us maintain AND eat great tasting treats!

And a one year subscription to Fitness magazine-- that's 12 months of new, fresh and FUN workout idea's and tips to help us stay active and accountable for all of 2011!! 

The Rules: 
Become a follower of Fit this, Girl!
Contest runs, November 22nd -January 6th. 1st weigh in completed by Friday 11/26, LAST weigh in completed by January 6th. Do not wear shoes during your weigh in and all weights MUST be tracked on the "Don't gain, maintain" Google Document HERE!

Open to EVERYONE and anyone who wants to be accountable over the holidays. You do not have to lose/maintain to win, but you MUST log your 2nd weigh in by January 6th to be eligible for the prize(s).  One winner will be chosen with a random number generator on January 7th and will be contacted to collect their prize(s). They have 5 days to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

I've also signed up for the Holiday Distance Challenge at our Y! You can either run, bike, or swim one of the distances that makes up a full Ironman between today and the end of the year. I'll be running 26.2 over these next few weeks, which should be easy enough to do.

This is a great idea - sign me up!

Love this!! Hopefully between this and the Holiday Bootie Buster challenge, I will make it through the next two+ months unscathed. :)

What a great motivator this will be! I overdid it big, big, big time for Thanksgiving!! My mom is just too good of a southern cook. Time to get back on track!

Katie said...

I just saw this, I don't know if it is to late to join but I weighed myself Thanksgiving morning so my weigh-in is from that time frame. I am determined to lose a few during these winter holidays!
