The true challenge begins after the challenge.
After the challenge you won’t be penalised for making poor food choices, for not working on mobility enough and for training training consistently. You’re not going to have a team at your back when you falter, and they aren’t going to be there encouraging forcing you to get involved in different sporting events.
Without the strict guidelines and incentives of the challenge, it’s easy to fall off the wagon.
All you can think of right now is what treat you’re going to have at the end of the challenge, right? It ends up becoming a weekend binge, and then you find ways of justifying “just one small treat” every day, and before you know it, you’re on a slippery slope to undoing all the great work you just did.
How you do prevent that from happening? You set small and tangible goals.
Your bonus point task for this week is to develop a small list of goals that you aim to achieve before the next Test Week (6 weeks away). We want two goals each for nutrition, health and lifestyle.
In order for your team to achieve 50 bonus points, each member of the team needs to post their goals in the comments section of this blog post by this Sunday. There is an example there for you to follow. If the task is complete in time, your team captains may add the bonus points to your score sheet.
