The Game-On Health Challenge Rules
1) A perfect day is total of 100 points. A perfect week is total of 700 points.
2) You get one day off of each aspect of the game! You can take a complete day off or split them up throughout the week such as Monday- meal plan day off, Tuesday- unhealthy habit day off, etc. Give yourself full points on your days off.
3) In each category, except the meal plan, it’s either all points or nothing. Deduct from the 30 meal points according to the penalties listed under deductions (full rules including bonuses/deductions will be emailed to you after registration).
4) Meal plan (30 points) – Choose any healthy meal plan such as Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, calorie counting (be sure to specify how many calories and what your penalties will be), dairy-free, no sugar/white flour, no fast food/processed foods, etc. You need to be very specific on your meal plan. Each time you eat outside your meal plan deduct 5 points. No soda, diet soda, or alcohol during the game. Period. Each drink is minus 10 points for up to your maximum 30 daily meal points.
5) Exercise (20 points) – 20 minutes of exercise each day (with a day off, of course!) It must be purposeful exercise… sorry, chasing kids or yard work doesn’t count. However, if you are feeling under-the-weather, stretching or taking a walk can count as your exercise points.
6) Sleep 7+ hours (15 points) – 7+ hours of sleep each night. For those new moms and insomniacs, 7+ hours in bed practicing relaxing techniques results in full points.
7) Water (10 points) – 3 liters of water each day. Yes. Water. The clear stuff you shower in. The only things you can add to your water are fresh lime or lemon slices and fresh mint leaves. Sorry, no exceptions.
8) Healthy Habit (10 points) – Pick one daily new habit to integrate during the game.
9) Unhealthy Habit (10 points) – Pick one daily unhealthy habit to eliminate during the game.
10) Communication (5 points) – One form of communication (email, text, Facebook, phone call, etc.) with one team member or opponent each day. Posting on the Facebook group counts as your FULL communication points for the day. Share a recipe, encouragement, playful banter… your choice!
