10-Week, 10-Pound Challenge: Week 1 Recap

Have you taken The Challenge? If not, it’s not too late to sign up! Sign the participation agreement here until 11:59pm on Sunday and you not only have the chance to lose 10 pounds, but you’ll automatically be entered to win weekly prizes!

This coming week we’ll be talking about how to schedule meals and workouts so sticking to your plan is foolproof. To make that easier, I’ll be giving one lucky participant a Rubbermaid “Lunchblox” food storage system for packing healthy meals and snacks on the go!

If you missed any of the blogs for Week 1 you’ll find them here, or listen to the podcast for a complete rundown of how to start.

Your “Start Here, Start Now” plan for Week 1:

  • Track your calories on Fooducate so you know where you are now.
  • Determine your basal metabolic rate using the BMR Calculator so you know how many calories your body needs as a base.
  • Calculate your daily calorie target by taking your current calorie intake and subtracting 500 (or subtract 250 and add 250 calorie-burn from exercise).
  • Find time to prioritize non-food pleasures in your life.

Summer’s the perfect time to focus your time and energy on feeling better and losing weight. Whether it’s your last 10-pounds or the first 10-pounds of a longer journey:

Start Here, Start Now!

Have a happy, healthy week!
