Benefits:         Besides starting a healthy habit, all participants that successfully complete the challenge will be                entered in a raffle in which 2 winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to Garden Patch Market.

 

  • The Challenge starts on Thursday, March 1 and ends on Wednesday, March 28.
  • The goal for the first week is 30 minutes of daily exercise; thereafter, 40 minutes/day for week 2, 50 minutes/day for week 3 and 60 minutes/day for week 4.
  • All minutes must be done in at least 15 minute increments of sustained exercise.  This means you MUST STAY MOVING FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES AT A TIME TO HAVE IT COUNT.  You can switch from one activity to the next within that time, but it must be sustained exercise. 
  • ANY exercise counts:  walking, push ups, jump roping, biking, trampoline bouncing, weight lifting, etc.
  • Record your daily successes with a star on the appropriate day.
  • You’re allowed a total of 3 skip days during the challenge to be used whenever you choose (if needed).
  • Completed calendars are due to Miss Julie by Thursday, March 29.  Please make sure your name is on it.
