8 Week Get Healthy Challenge: Week 1 Evaluation

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted, but I'm back with lots of things to tell the world about. First on my list is this 8 Week Get Healthy Challenge my family is doing (original blog post found here: ).

Okay. This get healthy/ weight loss program is really cool. it focuses more on being healthy than losing a ton of weight. It's a competition between my family members and the friends competing in it. This program was found on but my aunt started it for our family. I'm told we have 29 people participating!

So we all finished our first week of the program. Here is a list of what we have to do:

  • Make contact with a teammate (1pt)
  • Drink 64 oz of water (3 pts)
  • Stop eating before 9pm (3 pts)
  • 2 servings of fruit (3 pts)
  • 3 servings of vegetables (5 pts)
  • No sweets/ sugary treats (5 pts)
  • Keep a food journal (5 pts)
  • Workout (30 minutes = 5 pts or 45 minutes = 7 pts)
My total points for this last week was 194 out of a possible total of 205. Not too bad. But then you get 10 points for every pound lost and 5 points for maintaining lowest weight. 
I've lost 2 pounds this week because of this program.
Honestly, this wasn't a major change. I worked out the same amount I would have any week. I even thought I ate more food this week than usual, trying to get all my fruits and veggies in. But I lost two pounds. I'm so happy! I'm not the only one with results. My mom lost 3 pounds, my dad lost 4. This program really works to boost your body into getting healthy!

I highly recommend this for anyone. You can find all the information and the printable plan here:
