THE CHALLENGE: BURN CALORIES,LOSE INCHES OR WEIGHT AND SQUATS

HEY Y'ALL!

So this is the challenge. BEGINS JULY 25, 2011   ENDS SEPTEMBER 5, 2011 (6 WEEKS! )
2 member teams; POINT SYSTEM IN PLACE (points are earned for weight or inches loss and total team weekly calories burned. total number of squats).  Points are also lost (not submitting weekly/daily results).
NEED TEAM NAMES AND MEASUREMENTS/PICTURES SENT BY 07/21/2011 TO: JOURNEYINGASCRYSTAL@YAHOO.COM


ALSO ALL PHOTOS ARE TO BE NON-FLEXED TO MEASURE. I ONLY NEED ONE SIDE FOR THE PHOTOS.. BUT MEASURE BOTH FOR POINTS. AND ALWAYS SEND SAME PHOTO OF THAT SIDE THROUGHOUT THE CHALLENGE.
OKAY FOR THE 'BURNS' SECTION OF THE CHALLENGE. TO MAKE THIS FAIR... YOU EITHER SEND IN PIC OF NUMBER ON HRM OR IF USING MFP YOU MUST SHAVE 125 CALORIES OFF FOR TOTAL BURN. 
SORRY FOR DELAY ON THIS. THANK YOU LADIES WHO POINTED THIS OUT! 
CAN NOT EARN POINTS AT ALL IF RESULTS ARE TURNED IN LATE.
Tally of results done on Mondays by each team. As long as they are in-boxed by 10 am ET Tuesday Morning all is perfect!

So this is a challenge for EVERYONE with SQUATS and BURNS being the focus! Why NOT weight? If you are burning you will lose inches! This is generally the first tale sign of FAT loss! Which, if you are like me you want to look and feel good. Thats what fat loss will do for you! Remember the ONLY area where photos are required is the SQUATS section. Squats DO NOT HAVE TO BE DONE IN ONE SITTING.. wink wink. Though you do want to aim for enough reps/sets to really benefit. Only one person from each team sends  weekly results.


THE WITFM (whats in it for me?)
Well not only should you lose weight/inches, look better, feel better... But for you doing something for YOU and excelling, you and your partner will receive one of the following..
~gift from itunes/app store/ or amazon
~ipod shuffle W/ENGRAVING
~2 month supply of protein
~gift card to favorite lunch spot

THE GIFT WILL BE EITHER OR OF THESE PRIZES. WINNERS MAY GET TO CHOOSE..WE WILL SEE.
SO STAY HONEST AND POWERFUL THROUGH THIS CHALLENGE! IF I CARE ABOUT YOUR SUCCESS SURELY YOU CAN! HUGS!

  2. Crystal, how would one go about sending a picture of the taped body part if we have no one to take the picture while the tape is in place? My partner brought up the question so figured I would asked because the rules say "picture of taped body part".
