CHALLENGE 1
VALUE 50POINTS

WRITE A 3-4 PARAGRAPH ESSAY OR RECORD A VIDEO ESSAY. DISCUSS THE REASONS WHY YOU’VE DECIDED TO TAKE THIS FITNESS CHALLENGE AND WHAT IT IS YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE (YOUR GOALS) DURING THE NEXT 6 WEEKS. ALSO SHARE WHAT YOU FEEL ARE YOUR 2 MAIN BARRIERS TO STAYING AS FIT AND HEALTHY AS YOU’D LIKE TO. FOR YOU, THINKING ABOUT THESE THINGS WILL MAKE THIS JOURNEY MORE MEANINGFUL AND FOR ME I GET TO LEARN HOW I CAN BETTER HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS.

I WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU ALL WOULD SHARE THESE ESSAYS WITH ALL OF THE PLAYERS ON FACEBOOK. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO THOUGH. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO POST THEM TO THE COMMENT SECTION OF THE FACEBOOK POST FROM WHICH THIS CHALLENGE WILL BE POSTED. THIS PART IS ALL NEW TO ME, LET’S SEE HOW IT GOES.

I WOULD LIKE TO GET CONVERSATIONS GOING BETWEEN PLAYERS TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERACTIVE AND FUN AND ALSO GET SOME HEALTHY COMPETITION GOING. REMEMBER THERE ARE GREAT PRIZES WE ARE TRYING TO WIN HERE AS WE TRANSFORM INTO HEALTHIER INDIVIDUALS.

CHALENGE 2

CHALLENGE 2

EARN 1 POINT FOR EACH MINUTE OF WORK PERFORMED. WORK CAN BE ACCUMULATED THROUGHOUT THE DAY. IF YOU HAVE TO SPLIT IT UP IN TO SECTION SHOOT FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES PER SECTION. YOU CAN DO DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACTIVITY. IF YOU DO MORE THAN THIRTY MINUTES TOTAL, EARN 30 EXTRA POINTS. ALL MINUTES COUNT AS POINTS, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU ACCUMULATE 60 TOTAL MINUTES OF WORK YOU WOULD EARN 60 POINTS PLUS 30 BONUS POINTS FOR A TOTAL OF 90 POINTS.

FOR THIS EXERCISE TO BE EFFECTIVE, WORK AT A LEVEL THAT IS MODERATELY CHALLENGING FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU. NO MATTER WHAT ACTIVITY YOU CHOOSE. WORK AT IT. TO JUDGE HOW HARD YOU’RE WORKING LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND YOUR BREATH. WE’LL ALSO USE THE RATE OF PERCEIVED EXERTION SCALE. 1=EASY 10= HARD. YOU WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU ARE WORKING AROUND A 7-8 AND YOU SHOULD FEEL LIKE YOU CAN MAINTAIN THE ACTIVITY FOR GOOD WHILE WITHOUT HAVING TO STOP AND CATCH YOUR BREATH. IF YOU ARE HUFFING AND PUFFING AND HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING YOU ARE WORKING TOO HARD. THIS WILL NOT LEAD TO POSITIVE RESULTS. FIND YOUR BALANCE WORK HARD BUT NOT TO HARD, NOT YET. SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

SO…AFTER YOU’VE TACKLED THIS CHALLENGES I WOULD LIKE YOU TO POST THE ESSAY TO FACEBOOK OR EMAIL IT TO ME.I NEED TO SEE IT!  THEN I NEED YOU TO PLEASE REPORT YOUR TOTAL  POINTS FOR BOTH CHALLENGES. AGAIN, TO THE COMMENT SECTION OF THE FACEBOOK POST FROM WHICH THIS CHALLENGE WILL BE POSTED. OR EMAIL THEM TO ME. TROYLFORD1@MAC.COM

THIS IS NEW TERRITORY HERE FOR ALL OF US SO PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF AND WITH ME. AT FIRST THERE MIGHT BE A BIT OF REDUNDANCY AS FAR AS OUR COMMUNICATION BACK AND FORTH. MAINLY ON MY PART. I JUST WANT YOU TO HAVE THE TOOLS TO NEED TO SUCEED. PLEASE COMMUNICATE YOUR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ANYTIME IN ANY FORMAT. BE YER BEST!
