  27. Janna Nelson says:

    Janna Nelson is still in, but not sure I can continue…3 servings of fruit a day is messing with my blood sugar levels, my dr. only wants me eating one and more veggies.

    • Kimberley Arnold says:

      Hi Janna. From what I understand it’s okay to have 1 fruit and 6 veggies if need be. Of course balance is ideal, but if you have dietary restrictions I’m confident that HFF will understand. Perhaps try the lower glycemic fruits, but I’m sure you’ve talked to your dr about that already. Just trying to help :) good luck. We can do this!

    • Coach Snaer says:

      ummmm… what Kimberley said… lol… definitely have 1 and more veggies! Good job!

  40. Victoria Hernandez says:

    Victoria Hernandez is “still in”! Thought it would be harder to eat veggies but so far so good! : )

  41. I was wondering – I have been running for quite a few years and every program and article I’ve read has a rest day in it. They have said that the muscles need to rest and repair in order to get stronger. With the 2012 Challenge Plan, you are requiring 30 minute exercise everyday. Has the thinking changed about this?

    • Sarah Clarke says:

      I have already checked this. Its 210 mins a week so that equates to 30mins a day but it doesn’t matter how it is broken down in the week. I also feel rest days are important in running. Hope that helps.

      • Ok. The calendar shows 30 minutes a day, so that’s what I thought was required. I take what is written literally.

        • Barbara Liebergall says:

          I agree Merrill. I’m a runner too and that part is a little confusing. I just took it to mean I can do a very easy run or even a walk that day. Actually my understanding is some easy exercise does help you recover faster than total rest.

    • Coach Snaer says:

      Everyone who has replied is actually correct. You can either take a rest day and get 210 or you can work different muscle groups, walk, or have a very light workout. Rest is very important. However body weight exercises and weight training will help your running. Great question. Thanks!

  138. Sara Snoke says:

    Sara SNOKE—-STILL IN! I’m already down 4 lbs and have tons more energy. Thighs and biceps are sore but its a good sore. Tells me I’m doing something right. Keep up the good work everyone.

    • Coach Snaer says:

      Good job. Make sure you are getting recovery time, treat soreness with ice, and keep pushing through.

      • Sara Snoke says:

        I use biofreeze for sore muscles. Should I be useing ice as well? Sunday will be my recovery day. I’m going for 6 days a week cardio @ 45 mins. I just do a fast walk/jog interval training with a small incline. Every other day I also do weight training on top of the push-ups and sit-ups. I’m going strong and have great motivation.

        My initial this I gave up was just red meat because your challenge asked for only one item. However, my eating habits have dramatically changed. I’m doing a low fat, low carb., high protein diet that does not include red meat. It is workings wonders for my body. Carbs seem to be poison for my body so I have found by limiting them and cutting all carb intake by 1:00pm really helps.

    • Sara Snoke says:

      Your brave to give up sugar. I try my best to not eat anything with sugar however, I have an occasional weekness and I will end up munching on a piece of chocolate if its in the house. Try to keep thistle. Things out of the house and it will help dramatically. Keep up the good work.

      That’s fine Danette. However, you can also join in now and finish the 10 weeks as we will be starting another challenge similar to this one, but better, in our opinion, immediately after this one ends. Thanks for joining in!
