Wow! Somehow we have made it all the way to week six in our Walk It Off Challenge! So exciting. We have a handful of very active core- contributors and it’s been amazing to see their progress! Since the scores are getting so close it looks like we are going to have to get more creative with these challenges!
Half-way through the competition, here (drumroll) is our top 3:
Vanessa W. 60 Points
Janelle F. 65 Points
Melissa R. 70 Points
Hey Team Reborn!
The Walk It Off Challenge is still going strong! Big thanks to everyone who is still “in it to win it!” You are all doing an amazing job! If you are following our schedule, you halved waked an amazing 99 miles!
You can STILL earn points with our buddy challenge (see last week’s post) and there is still time to catch up of you haven’t gotten into the challenge! If you are feeling behind, take a look at this article that talks about the AMAZING benefits that only 30 minutes of walking can do for your body!
Hello There, Team Reborn!
We are wrapping up week four, and honestly I am not sure how that is possible. We are 1/3rd away through our challenge!
Here are Reborn’s top 3 competitors!
Cristina Asarpota 30 Points
Janelle Figueroa 35 Points
Karina Rangel 45 Points
So exciting! I have had a few really great conversations about how people are progressing in this initiative, and it’s brought so much joy to my heart!
I get the pleasure of interacting with a lot of you personally. Whether it’s through ReviewBuzz, events, or even in sales meetings, I am blessed to be able to hop in my car at the end of the day and spend my commute home thinking about all the great conversations I have every day.
THIS leads me to our next Walk It Off bonus challenge…and this one isn’t going to be JUST a photo challenge!
I’m calling this the “Reborn Buddy Challenge!” In addition to your regular submissions, and for TEN extra points, I am asking everyone in this challenge to find a Reborn Buddy and do something healthy together! Workout, play a game of basketball, or simply take your lunch break to go on a walk together! Have fun with it, and be sure to snap a picture! That’s your proof!!!
To be clear, your Reborn Buddy doesn’t have to “officially” be part of our Walk It Off Challenge, but they DO have to be a Reborn Employee! And since this is a more involved challenge, all Walk It Off participants have until June 27th to submit your bonus-buddy-challenge “proof.”
Keep walkin’ it off, Team Reborn!
Hey there, Team Reborn!
We had another great round of pictures come in! It’s really exciting to see people sticking to this idea–and SUPER fun to see some new faces in the Walk It Off inbox!
Sticking to something is really hard to do, especially when it requires you to move outside of your own comfort zone. Personally, I don’t enjoy working out…but I LOVE the way I feel after I get up and do it. Which leads me to our very first Walk It Off BONUS challenge!
In addition the regular weekly submission, participants can earn an EXTRA 5 points for sending in a picture of something that symbolizes, “What inspires you to walk off your habits.” Your kids? An old dress you want to fit into at the end of this? Maybe you are working up to a bigger challenge, like a marathon! There isn’t a “wrong” way to interpret this challenge, but please be sure to explain why the image you are sending in is significant to you. We are gonna share!
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
Caitlin Lemaire (let me know if you have any questions!)
I am very excited to publish our first week of “Walk It Off” pictures! Thank you to everyone who submitted! Everyone on this slideshow earned 10 points this week!
If you are following our walking schedule, then you will have walked a total of 14 miles! Amazing! Here’s a neat little link where you can check out how many calories you burned “walking off” your old habits this week!
If I somehow missed you, let me know! I am always making mistakes! Also, if you’re still unclear about how to submit, feel free to email me and I will fill you in
It’s here! The Reborn “Walk It Off” Challenge has begun today with our first weight-in!
We have gotten a lot of great questions since we announced this challenge, so before I collect an official list of people interested, here are a few last-minute details that might hook a few RBC people who are still on the fence about joining in!
Q: What if I can’t walk? What if I hate walking? Do I have to walk? Walking is boring…
A: No, you don’t have to walk. While this is called the “Walk It Off” challenge, you can do whatever you want. Maybe you’re really into yoga but got out of the swing of things. Maybe you like running! Swimming? All of it works! The point is to stick to being active for 12 weeks in a row. You can do it!
Q: Are you only calculating weight, or are you calculating BMI?
A: While we are using the term “weight loss” please note that we will be calculating BMI. This means if you are looking to bulk up you are still eligible to win the 100 points in the end
Q: How exactly are the points being counted?
A: Each week, every participant has the opportunity to submit a photo that represents their “walk it off” journey. As long as the pictures are appropriate, any single photo will count. Maybe you are going to buy new shoes to get in shape! Maybe you are busting out your dirty weights from the garage…anything goes as long as it makes sense within the challenge. Every photo will count as 10 points. If you submit each week, you’ll collect 120 points.
At the final weigh-in, we will also reward the person with the most dramatic weight/BMI change will get 100 points. This amount should be enough to send an active participant way ahead…but if you haven’t been sending in pictures it might not be!
Q: Will there be bonus challenges?
A: Yep! Bonus challenges will come in different forms! Meet-ups, photo challenges, and more!
Q: Where are these pictures going?
A: Every Friday the photos will be uploaded to the RBCEE site! That way we can all see what everyone is sending in!
Q: Where do I send these pictures?
A: We will provide an email address for all submissions! Deadline for every week will be Friday at noon!
