Are you ready to establish new, healthy habits... AND lose weight?
This competition is perfect for you! Instead of simply weighing in every week and recording pounds lost, this competition relies on a point system. There are 7 different ways to earn points – categories include: exercise, food journaling, drinking water, sleeping, and of course weight loss! At the end of 6 weeks, you will have established new, healthy habits – and you’ll fit in your skinny jeans! WOOT!

POINT SYSTEM: MAX = 1 POINT/DAY FOR EACH CATEGORY*
1. FOOD LOG: What matters gets measured – and believe us, it matters!!! If it goes in your mouth, it gets logged! Partial entries DON’T count! Log ALL your food/drink for the day, earn a point. (We recommend My Fitness Pal, but any online food journal will work!) Not sure how to maximize My Fitness Pal? Join us for the Strategy Session on 1/6!
2. STEADY STATE CARDIO: Scheduling time to exercise is critical to your success! To earn a Steady State point, you must complete 30 minutes of continuous, uninterrupted activity in a single session. (Steady State Cardio can be walking, riding a bike, rowing, swimming, etc. Max points = 1/day).
3. STRENGTH: Get under a barbell, get a point! Every strength training session = 1 point (max = 1/day).
4. SLEEP: You must be in bed with the lights off/phone on the nightstand (not in your hand!) for 8 continuous hours. (Even if you don’t actually sleep for 8 continuous hours, you’ll still earn a point)
5. WATER: Pound water for points! 64 ounces of water = 1 point.
6. *WEEKLY WEIGH-IN: Get on the scale, get a point! (It doesn’t get much easier than that!) You can weigh every day if you like, but you can only earn a point when a GrassIron Trainer weighs you in each week (MAX = 1 point/WEEK)
7. WEIGHT LOSS: At the end of the 6 week competition, every percent of body weight lost will be worth 20 points. For example, if you’re 12% lighter than when you started, you’ll earn 240 points.
