How To Earn Points?

Because not all of us need to lose body weight, we want to make this challenge more about healthy living allowing everyone to participate and have a good chance of winning.  Therefore, here is the key to earning points.

Daily Points

  • Steps Walked (you can enter this manually on your phone or computer, sync your FitBit to your account or text your data to the number provided).  Each 1,000 steps equates to 1 Challenge Point
  • Servings of Fruits and Veggies (you can enter this manually on your phone or computer).  3 Daily Servings of Fruits/Veggies equates to 3 Points / 5 Daily Servings of Fruits/Veggies equates to 5 Points
  • Daily Workout (you can enter this manually on your phone or computer or text your data to the number provided).  Every 30 Minutes of Exercise in a Dedicated Workout equates to 5 Points

Weekly Points

  • Each week, you need to log your weight (based on a weigh-in with the school nurse).  After weigh-in, you will need to take your slip and log the data using your phone or computer or by texting the data to the number provided.  1% of Weight Lost equates to 10 Points

Monthly Points

  • Each month, we will host an event (hiking, cooking class, or similar).  There will only be one event per month (one in January, one in February and one in March).  No extra events will be added.  Each Event Attended equates to 25 Points
