F2F-WLC CHALLENGES:
- - WEEKLY GROUP CHALLENGE (Challenges hosted by teams for the entire group)
- - MODERATOR'S CHALLENGE (Challenges hosted by the moderators of the group)
- - INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES (Challenges within teams themselves)

Team Weekly challenges will be announced in later communications

(Note:The team order for challenges follows the team order in the group standing sheet on the spreadsheets)

HOW OUR CHALLENGES WORK:
We have 4 total possible challenges and NONE are mandatory. Our challengers can do none or all it's up to them. So we have...

The F2F Weekly TEAM Challenge - posted each week on Sunday in the announcements by the team who is assigned that particular week (see above for your week). This is for the F2F Group as a whole.

F2F Moderators Challenge/Topic of the week - This challenge is provided each week in the announcements area. One of the moderators will either provide a challenge that will involve anything fitness, health, and nutrition.

Individual Team challenges - these are challenge done within your own team. You can chose daily, weekly, or monthly challenges (weekly seems to work best). You can make this whatever you wish as long as it's health and fitness related.

Note: If for some reason your team is unable to provide the weekly challenge please let me know ahead of time so another team can take your place or so I can provide the challenge.

Good Luck Teams: Please let us know if there is anything wrong or if you notice something that needs to be fixed or modified. Everything seems ready to go for APRIL. Registrations are almost done and we have quite a few new challengers. Make sure you are going into your new team threads to welcome anyone who has started posting. Let’s make our newbies feel welcome and show them some F2F love!!

THANKS, YOUR MODS

    THIS WEEK MODERATORS CHALLENGE
    LET'S GET THAT HEART A PUMP-IN WHAT YA SAY

    Cardio Go is a low impact 30-day no-equipment program with a focus on streamline achieved through steady burn. It has a simple easy-to-follow structure and it’s designed as a running substitute.

    The program is perfect for beginners as well as people at an advanced fitness level who want to add extra, moderate exercise to their day. Each session is 30-40 minutes long. Rest between sets is optional and it can be skipped.

    All exercises in the program are standing exercises, at no point will you need to get down on the floor - there are no burpees, push-ups or planks. This program can be repeated indefinitely after the 30 days are up. Each day simply start the timer and go! Repeat the set for each day seven times in total. You can do more or fewer sets to increase or decrease the workout time to better fit it into your day.

    Thank you so much I am so excited! I’m also really excited about the moderators challenge this week. I’ve been wanting a little more cardio in my day but nothing too advanced. This beginner cardio looks like just what I was looking for!

    Welcome new members new members, @BuiltLikeAPeep @[email protected] @jgratopp6 @Pricanma13 and @Fitgirllife72 !

    @Fitgirllife72 - What a great weigh-in! Way to kick the month off with a bang!

    Austin here. I joined the group 7 months ago, part way through a long journey. I have lost over 120 pounds since I started work on this last January, and am getting close to my initial goal. I study martial arts and love walks, especially outdoor walks, so you'll see lots of this activities on my check-ins. I love to read up on things, and have studied nutritional science* and habit building** as I have done this work. So every so often I burble about habit building, as that has been super useful to me.

    Welcome to Mission Slimpossibles! This is such a fabulous group of people, and we are glad you are joining us on the journey! This is a group of people that would love to hear about what you are up to as you work on your health and fitness on a daily basis using whatever plan you find it best for you. We want to hear about both the struggles and the victories, and will be sharing ours with you.


    * If interested, check out the nonprofit, research-baswed site nutritionfacts.org as a great place to start.

    ** If interested, check out the work of James Clear. He has a book called Atomic Habits. This video on How to Get 1% Better Every Day was particularly useful to me.

    Those look like fantastic resources, thank you for posting them, especially the post about habits and building good habits is so important. Motivation is good, bit it isn't consistent and can fail us, habit beats motivation every time !

    Ohhh my goodness it's a new month and I didn't even realize it!! :o

    Hello to all our new members!! You are in an awesome group that is very supportive and fun! :)

    My Fitbit hasn't been syncing to my phone for the last few days and I just figured out how to fix it today. So, I apologize for not completing my steps for the month. :/

    Sunday check-in
    Calories: under
    Water: over
    Exercise: Lots of housework!

    My goal for April is to stay on my new intermittent fasting plan and hopefully lose a good amount of weight! B)

    Tomorrow is actually APRIL! Can you believe it? Welcome to our new members, @grizziegriz
    @jgratopp6 @Pricanma13 and @Fitgirllife72. You have come to a great place! I am Tami and have been in this group for about a year and a half, I guess. I've lost over 40 pounds and have been in and out of maintenance now for several months. I live in Knoxville, Tennessee, so spring is definitely here, and that makes me happy.

    Steps for our step challenge (I'm catching up):

    3/27 = 12, 396
    3/28 = 8,062
    3/29 = 5,929 UGH
    3/30 = 13,935

    Speaking of Step Challenge, team do you want to keep going to Katahdin or do something else? It's up to y'all.

    I would love to keep going if others are up for it (and you don’t mind continuing to post about our hike??)The pictures are gorgeous.

    I don't mind at all. We should be there in just a couple weeks. Just thought I'd check to see what others wanted to do. :blush:
