Rules for the “No Scale July” challenge

NoScaleJuly

Okay, if you saw yesterday’s post about wanting to do a “No Scale July” challenge, I’ve decided to try to quantify it with points and make it a challenge. If you’re interested in joining in the challenge I’ve made a Facebook group to help keep us motivated and on track. Not to forget to keep score as well.

So here are the basic rules that I outlined yesterday …

  • Do not step on a scale during the whole month.
  • Workout a minimum of 4 times a week. 
  • Eat before and after each workout.
    1. Simple foods before a workout (ie-banana, fruit, etc.)
    2. Protein/Zeal Wellness drink post-workout. 
  • Drink a minimum of 96oz. of water daily.
  • Eat one FREE (or cheat or whatever you call it) meal per week.
    1. This includes a meal and dessert and they can be split up during the week.

Fairly simple and easy rules, right? My thoughts exactly. So how do we quantify (I feel like I’ve been using this word too much the past two days just for the sake of making me sound smart … if I’m using it in the wrong context … SO HELP ME!) them into points? After working it out a bit, here’s what I came up with …

STAY OFF A SCALE (for the month): +250 points
STEP ON A SCALE (for the month): -250 points
WORKOUT (one hour): +2 points
RUNNING (2-5 miles): +2 points
RUNNING (6-8 miles): +3 points
RUNNING (8-13 miles): +4 points
RUNNING (13.1 miles +): +5 points
RUNNING (20 miles +): +6 points
DO NOT WORKOUT 4 TIMES DURING WEEK: -10 points
DRINK 96OZ OF WATER: +1 point
DRINK LESS THAN 96OZ OF WATER: -1 point
PRE-WORKOUT MEAL: +1 point
POST-WORKOUT MEAL: +1 point
MISS PRE OR POST WORKOUT MEAL: -1 point
FREE MEAL: +2 points
SKIP FREE MEAL: -2 points

I think that’s a pretty good scale for points. If you want to join the challenge and keep track of your points just join the group over on Facebook.
