The University of Iowa launched its 5 Weeks to Wellness Challenge on February 3rd and the challenge goes on until March 9th, 2014.

So what exactly is the 5 weeks to Wellness Challenge?

The Five Weeks to Wellness Challenge is a challenge that focuses on improving your nutrition and fitness habits while boosting your overall wellness. Not only are you striving to eat better each day and look better by participating in physical activities but at the end of the challenge you will get a prize of your choosing for participating.

Each Monday you will receive weekly goals, expert tips on how to stay healthy and support from experts. Once you are registered you will track your progress with a scorecard each week to monitor what you have been doing. You can either print off the scorecard or keep track on ICON of your progress. There are physical activity and nutrition goals for each week. Each goal is worth 1 token per day so the more the better!

The goal is 50 tokens.

So what happens at the end of the challenge? Once the challenge is over on March 9th, you will complete an online evaluation on March 10th that is emailed to you and submit the total amount of tokens you earned so you can be eligible for prizes.You will receive an email on how to pick up the prize of your choice if you accumulated 50+ tokens. The prize choices include: water bottle, salad shaker, gym towel, and food container. Students who complete the challenge (50+ tokens) will also be entered in the large prize drawing (dry-fit shirt from Running Wild, mug and smoothie from Tropical Smoothie, and Recreational Services personal training session).

So far my progress is going well as I too am taking on this challenge. Who’s with me?!
