Challenge 4- Rise Up and be a Warrior- 2 Day Weekend Challenge

This challenge has been created to help us gain a mindset of exercising and eating well on the weekends. This challenge covers Saturday and Sunday. (keep reading for Events)

The more we post and the more we interact with one another the more fun it is! Let's do this together, pushing, pulling, encouraging each other to victory!

There are four events. Each event is worth 100 points. There are bonus points that are worth 50 points. There will be one drawing. The winner gets a whopping $30 Amazon gift card. Woo-Hoo!

Both Saturday and Sunday's events must be completed to earn the points for that specific event. Likewise, extra points must be done each day to be counted. Each event is worth 100 points. Bonus events are worth 50 points. For example, when you complete the devotional for Saturday and Sunday you will earn 100 pts. You will receive 50 extra points for sharing scripture on both those days for a total of 150 points. For every 100 points you will get your name into the hat. (If you just completed Saturday's devotional you would not get any points)

So, if at the end of the challenge you count up 750 points your name will go in the hat 7 times.

May The Best Warrior Win!

Devotional: This event is worth 100 points. Complete Saturday and Sunday's devotional (whichever ones you are currently doing. If you have kept up then these are lessons 12 and 13.) Each day post a comment about the devotional (if you comment in the actual devotional post you can copy and paste it here.)

50 extra points if you share a scripture pertaining to the devotional (other than those Cathy shares!)

Workout: This event is worth 100 points. Complete a workout in accordance with your level (1,2,3) on Saturday AND Sunday. Each day post what workout you did.

50 extra points for posting a picture of you doing the workout!
NOTE: For those of you who do not exercise/workout on the Sabbath consider walking for the amount of time that corresponds with your level.

Post a Recipe: This event is worth 100 points. Saturday and Sunday provide a healthy recipe that you have actually made. You may provide a link to the recipe if you'd like, instead of posting the directions. If the nutritional values are not on the link, please post them.

50 extra points if you post a picture of the food
50 extra points if it's a picture of you eating it!

Quench Your Thirst: This event is worth 100 points. Each day drink at least 6 cups of pure unflavored water (bubbles are fine). After you complete the event each day post one benefit of drinking water.

Challenge #3: Take selfie pix of exercising — I wasn’t sure how to take a pix and post it, so I decided to include a quote of what exercise means to me now.
“Exercise is a celebration of all your body can do.”

I plan to honor my God and my body by exercising and keeping in shape. It’s been a great two weeks!

Not sure how I am to do this( Where) but 1. My favorite work out tune is Runnin’ to win ( by Sweet Comfort Band)1982 2.I remain encouraged by, I have a big piece of board that used to be used for puzzles. I drew a ladder on it and in between each area it had a weight from start date and start weight at bottom, kinda like a Mount Everest type of thing but Jacobs Ladder going to the promised land. As I release a pound I color it in with a highlighter pen and have all the weights listed up to my goal weight. On the side I have pictures of things I would or could see myself doing again and on the other side I have all sorts of scriptures that have motivated me in some way. I don’t know how to post pictures but I have taken a selfie and my husband took one of me exercising. I did not do number 4…. 5. I invited my husband to walk with me yesterday and today. He did. I can’t ask a friend for COVID 19 lock down. I will do # 6 at the end. Here… Read more »

Challenge #2 – April 17th – Sometimes it is difficult to remain motivated. However, I have really begun to enjoy recommitting each morning to exercise and increased health. What motivates me is my dog–who gets so excited about her daily walks AND who watches me on the treadmill with mild amusement! I also am motivated by my daughter, who reminds me to eat healthy and to get on that treadmill while watching TV. I also am motivated by great music! I can just tell Alexa what to play and boom!

Love “Pump Up the Jam” by Technotronic; “Turn Down for What” by Lil Jon; “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. I have also come to love Mandisa’s voice. ‘Overcomer” is a fantastic workout tune. I’m putting together a new playlist!
