March Healthy Challenge!
This month's challenge is going to take us back to the basics of healthy eating. Somewhere along the lines of our busy lives, our children's schedules, and our hobbies, we forgot how to eat the things that are made from the earth, and don't come in a convenient little package. It's time to remember what people used to eat--you know, before 100 calorie packs!
Reach for three fruits per day!
Dates: March 8, 2010 - March 30, 2010
Members will eat three servings of fruit per day.
Exceptions: Each member is allowed two exceptions to be used as you wish - for any reason - you can forgo three servings of fruit for two days this month.
What constitutes a serving?
One serving of fruit is equal to one piece of fruit, if the fruit is whole (about the size of a tennis ball).
If the fruit is cut-up, then about the size of seven cotton balls equals one serving.
Does it have to be fresh fruit?
No! Fresh fruit is portable and the size is already figured out, but we're shooting for healthy eating habits, and if you need canned or frozen foods, that's totally fine!!
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 every other day and simply share how you are doing. Tell us if you stumbled, if you were able to turn it around in a particular instance, or even just share a positive affirmation. Remember, this is a positive thoughts healthy challenge, so I hope not to receive posts that say, "I blew it!" Turn that frown upside down! "Today was hard, but tomorrow will be better!"
Support: Want to play but afraid you might not be able to keep up with the challenge? Does it sound silly? If you are worried about not being able to keep it up- that's what we're here for. We'll support you the entire way- every step! If you think the challenge sounds silly, then perhaps you are already eating three fruits per day. Good for you! Then turn it around a bit and eat three servings of veges! Please come share your healthy eating habits with us! After all, you can never have enough friends, or bring enough good cheer to others:-)
We know you can do this!
We believe that, if successful, you'll be surprised at how good you will feel!
