Welcome to the second annual CFW Spring Leaning Challenge! If you are not sure what this is all about and want more information, read THIS and THIS.  Please post your daily food log and point total for Monday to the comments section below.  If you haven’t downloaded your scorecard/checklist yet, click HERE to download it.

If you have never logged onto our blog to leave comments, you can register HERE, as this will require a separate user name and password from the Zen Planner account you use to register for your classes. Once you are logged in, please go to the Spring Leaning blog post for that day and click on the title above where it says “Spring Leaning Challenge Day 1” or on the orange comment bubble on the upper left hand side, this will open up a comments box at the bottom, where you can type in your information.

For our first week, we will focus on getting in the right mindset for the challenge to come.

Your daily bonus challenge for Monday, April 14th is to set a SMART goal for the challenge. When logging your food and points for Monday, please include a short note about your goal.  We encourage you to set a goal that is related to performance (i.e. get a pull-up, get 30 more reps in ‘Cindy’) or physical goal (body fat percentage or measurements, or perhaps a goal outfit) rather than setting a weight loss goal.

Here is an example of how to log your foods and points.  This is actually what I ate Saturday, I realize that my evening snacking isn’t the picture of health, but it is honest, and I’m starting fresh on Monday!
