emoticon DESTINATION - Qamea Island, Fiji 10,586 Miles - Healthy Snack & Bedtime Routine

The challenge begins Saturday morning. Healthy Snack & Bedtime Routine & Exercise done prior to SATURDAY DOES NOT COUNT!!!!!

We are off the beaten path on the idyllic, tropical island of Qamea, in northern Fiji. What an exquisite setting for a 'Bure' (a Fijian word for a hut) in amongst coconut palms with stunning views of the ocean. Listen to the sound of the waves as you fall into a peaceful slumber and awaken to a choir of bird calls. Your glamping accommodation has a sunken tub on your private deck. Relax in a hammock at the beach looking out at the blue ocean. Enjoy the beautiful beaches and crystal clear water, perfect for swimming and snorkeling right off the beach.

Choose activities to refresh and restore your well being - yoga, pilates, surf lessons, snorkeling tours, Fijian massage, village tours, island hopping, beach volleyball and fishing trips. On the last night enjoy the Fijian feast on the beach and watch the sunset.

1 minute of exercise = 1 air mile

DAILY MAXIMUM 120 exercise minutes/air miles.

Living the Good Life – Healthy Snack & Bedtime Routine emoticon emoticon emoticon

Snacking is a smart way to keep hunger at bay throughout the day, but the key is snacking on the right things, at the right times, and in the right places. Are your snacking habits healthy--or horrific? Find out how your snacks stack up with this short quiz.

Spark - Are You a Smart Snacker?

We do it in the car, on the train, in front of the TV, on the phone, and even in bed. For too many of us, snacking has become so automatic that our brains barely register the hand-to-mouth motion. And it's not as if we're all reaching for diet-friendly apples: A 2010 study from the University of North Carolina found that most of us eat nearly 600 calories a day—roughly a third of our food in snacks rather than meals.

If you are not a snacker that is okay, you still get full points but IF you are a snacker keep in mind that the calories in your snacks count too. Some consider a snack as mini-meals. A SNACK IS 200 CALORIES OR LESS; more than that and it is a meal. When you snack you have to consider your total daily calorie limit and then distribute the calories to include your snacks.

Spark - 55 Healthy Snacks Under 200 Calories

Spark - Calorie and Nutritional Comparison of Snacks

Spark - 15 Healthy Post-Workout Snacks

For the purpose of this challenge there is no limits on how many snacks a day you have. We are encouraging you to make ONE of those snacks a healthy one.

This Challenge is not to encourage you to snack if you are not already a snacker; but if you do snack, this is to encourage you to choose healthy snacks, under 200 calories. Regardless of the number of times a day you snack, the limit to record here is ONE healthy snack. The goal is for the snacker to eat a healthy snack.

No snacking all day or one healthy snack a day UNDER 200 CALORIES = 10 points (maximum 10 point/day) all or nothing!

emoticon Summary

Record all exercise minutes. Its 10,586 Miles Minutes/Air miles. DAILY MAXIMUM 120 exercise minutes/miles.

Scoring: 1 minute of exercise = 1 air mile

Living the Good Life – Healthy Snack or NO Snack - Daily Maximum 10 points (all or nothing)

Healthy Snack/No Snack = 10 points

Get to Bed On Time = 10 points - all or nothing

You can record this on one thread. (example)

My Exercise: 45
My Snack: 10
My Get to Bed: 10

Team Exercise 85 + 45 = 130
Team Snack 10 + 10 = 20
Team Get to Bed: 100 + 10 = 110

RECORDING THE TEAM SCORES - After the first three teams arrive, ALL teams will continue to add points until MIDNIGHT Friday. This will give the other teams a chance to make it to the destination and do a little exploring. Those that don't make it will be flown in and begin the next leg of the race with the other teams.
