Welcome to Yogis get fit - and the save Mari's life challenge,  you are part of this whether you want to be or not!

The rules are quite simple:

  2. You will use Challenge Runner to log your progress daily/weekly.  Challenge Runner can be accessed as an app on a smart phone or online.  Daily logging shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds, but everyone is busy, so competitors will have up to 3 days to log their activities.  Weekly activities are recorded Sunday to Saturday. Competitors will earn points through the following challenges:
  • Steps  (daily)
  • Servings of fruit or veggies (daily)
  • 8oz glasses of water (daily)
  • Getting at least half your family involved in a fitness activity (weekly)

  • Weight loss percentage (weekly)
  • How many times eating out, 0-1, 2-4, or 5+, (weekly)


Each challenge will be weighted differently, with the heaviest weight on weight loss percentage and steps, as those are our ultimate goal.  And Saving Mari's life.
