June's Healthy Challenge!
Many of us feel like our lives spin out of control around us - between the kids' schedules, our spouse or significant other's needs, and work, who has time to cook, plan....or for that matter, to slow down enough to enjoy our time?
This month's healthy challenge is not going to be easy - especially for busy women on-the-go!
But then again, a challenge wouldn't be considered a challenge if it were easy.
Every month, many people spend hundreds of dollars on fast, unhealthy foods because they're in a rush, on-the-go, and food is not a priority. For others who enjoy eating out, this challenge will be a great time to reevaluate just how much you really spend on restaurant/fast food over the course of a month.
Dates: June 3, 2009 - June 30, 2009
Members will refrain from eating out for 30 days. This includes foods only - For all of you Starbucks fanatics, as much as I'd like to nix that habit as well, that may be another challenge - but for now we'll take baby steps.
Exceptions: Each member is allowed two exceptions to be used for special events or work-related commitments.
Can I eat at any restaurants at all? Yes! We understand that for some people, eating out is a way of life, and rather than put you in an uncomfortable situation, we will allow eating at Subway Restaurants (wow, we should get paid for this promotion - Someone contact Jared! LOL!), provided that you eat one of their six-grams of fat choices.
Member Responsibility: We trust our members. This will work on an honor system, however you will be required to check in to our Healthy Challenges Forum daily and simply confirm that you have refrained from eating out - tell us what you did instead - how you fought the urge!
Support: Want to play but afraid you might cave in to the fast food calling you? We'll be here to support you all the way! If you feel the urge to cheat - jump on our boards - help is just a click away :-)
We know you can do this!
We believe that, if successful, you'll be surprised at all the money you will save and how good you will feel!
