The holidays are a wonderful time of year, but also bring some added stress, added temptations, and less time to focus on our health. All of a sudden our good habits start slipping, until we wake up on January 2nd saying, “Holy night, what just happened?!? 🤯 I better get back on track!” Not this year! Amy Yeoman of Fuel to Thrive has put together this 6-week challenge to help you stay focused on YOU, without adding additional stress, and while still enjoying the holiday season, so that you can start 2018 already feeling great!

Q: I don’t have a scale; how do I weigh myself?
A: Good! I don’t think you need a scale! Farmgirlfit has a scale that you can use weekly for the challenge.
Q: I will be traveling over the holidays; can I still participate?
A: Yes! This program was created to be easy. You can fill out your Weekly Partner Report by being in contact with your partner in any form that is easiest for you. You can take your weight on any scale you can find. The only guidelines for taking weight that I require is your first and last weight are taken on the same scale.
Q: What if I have allergies and can’t make the recipes?
A: Make your own variation of it to fit your allergies! You can also earn points by sharing recipes and trying other peoples, so if you don’t like the ones I give you, pass it up and try the next one!
Q: How do I turn in my Weekly Partner Report?
A: You can either fill it out and send it via email, or take a picture and send it to my email.
Q: How is communication going to happen?
A: Most of the communication will occur over the Facebook page. Weekly weights and report sheets will be sent to me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What is considered “weight maintenance”?
A: We all know weight fluctuates based on water weight, time of your cycle, if you’ve gone to the bathroom, when you’ve eaten, etc. So, for this program, weight maintenance is considered original weight +/- 2 pounds.
Q: What if I don’t maintain weight?
A: The challenge is set up so that you can still win the most points by participating in other areas of the program. This program is not meant to make you feel doomed if you have a bad week. Jump back on it and do your best, because after all, that is what healthy habits are all about!
Q: What am I actually getting out of the program?
A: The main thing you are getting is accountability and structure to keep your healthy habits in check over the holidays. You are also getting weekly tips to stay focused through the holidays as well as weekly recipes to try. If you take the program seriously, it will help you start the new year off right!
