Week 2 Blog Post – 800g Challenge
Congratulations on a successful first week of the 800g Challenge 4B Family! We saw several of you staying after classes to knock out your challenge sit ups and various posts on social media showing how you got in your 800g of fruits and veggies, and we’re extremely proud of each of you.
How did you feel your first week? What were some wins you had? What do you hope to improve for this next week? Check-in with yourself to see how you’re feeling as you head into week 2 to help you better prepare!
Below you will find need-to-know information on all things concerning WEEK 2!
Week 2 Fitness Challenge:
We hope you had fun building your summer thick pack’s, but our next fitness challenge is going to be to:
Accumulate a 1 Mile Farmer’s Carry AHAP
You will have the week to accumulate your 1 mile farmer’s carry outside of your workouts done in class. You can either use dumbbells or kettlebells, and split up the work however you’d like to. Just challenge yourself, your grip strength, and your core and try to make it as heavy as possible. Each weekly fitness challenge is designed to keep you focused on staying active outside of your normal class times! Remember, we trust you to remain honest with yourselves, your coaches, and your fellow challengers, so be honest about your distance covered and make sure to keep a tally on the front chalkboard!
Week 2 Food Bonus Point:
Our next daily food bonus point will come from eating
Leafy greens include all lettuces, spinach, chard, greens (collards, beet creeps), cabbages, fresh herbs like basil or cilantro, arugula, watercress, etc. AKA, if it looks like a leaf and it’s green, then it counts! You can get 1 bonus point per day for every day you eat at least 50 grams of a leafy green. Remember, you must hit 800g to be eligible for the bonus point. These bonus points will count May 13th through May 19th.
Did you have a hard time getting in your 800g each day or feel like you were trying to stuff 600g of veggies in your mouth at the end of the day? Then check out this article to help you plan on adding fruits and veggies with breakfast!
Are you worried that adding in all these extra fruits and veggies will put you over on carbs? Then you’ll definitely want to read this article to see how many carbs you’re really eating.
Now that we’re wrapping up our first week, keep riding that momentum into week two. Keep planning ahead and making the small, daily effort to help you reach your daily goals because small, daily actions are where the magic happens.
If you have any questions, feel free to email coaches Gabby and Erica or strike up a conversation when you see them in the gym.
Here’s to a stronger, happier, healthier week 2!
Your 4B Family
