**February 23 Challenge Check In**

If you logged a minimum of 500 steps more than your normal daily goal or the average of the past seven days on February 23, please comment on this post.

From those who comment, I will select a winner at random. I will email this person (using the email address associated with his/her DietBet account). ONLY this person will need to provide verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. (*Please do not post pictures when you comment.)

You will also need to provide verification of your daily goal, or your seven day average - whichever you used to calculate your step total for the challenge.

This person will have 24 hours to reply with verification. If I don't hear back by then, the prize is forfeited. And a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be a choice between either DietBet credits (may be used towards the bet payment of either a DietBet, RunBet or StepBet, awarded immediately), or an Amazon gift card (sent once all step challenge winners are identified).

If you comment on this post, please be sure to check your email after the check in period ends!

Remember there is a step challenge today. Today's target is your normal daily step goal (or past seven day average) plus an extra 500 steps. Not sure what that means? Check out the second comment on the Challenge Winner Board post (right under this post).

"Eat the Rainbow"
There are times I look at my plate, and I see a lot of the same colors. Then there are other times (like last night) that I see a variety of colors. And seeing that always makes me happy.

Eating the rainbow really just means eating a variety of fruits and vegetables so your diet is rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

RED
Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and may help lower the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer
- tomatoes, watermelon, grapefruit

YELLOW + ORANGE
Anti inflammatory, antioxidant, supports eye health and may help lower the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer
- carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, peppers, tangerines, corn

GREEN
Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and cruciferous vegetables may help lower the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer
- spinach, kale, broccoli, avocados, asparagus, Brussels sprouts

BLUE + PURPLE
Anti inflammatory, antioxidant, may help improve brain function and lower the risk of heart disease, neurological disorders, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer
- blueberries, blackberries, plums, eggplant, Concord grapes

DARK RED
Anti inflammatory, antioxidant, may help lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and certain cancers.
- beets, prickly pears

WHITE + BROWN
Anti inflammatory, antioxidant, may help lower the risk of heart disease, colon cancer and other types of cancer
- cauliflower, leeks, onions, white potatoes, parsnips

The link to the article is in the comments. There is a lot more information on the main vitamins and minerals and micronutrients as well as tips on how you can incorporate more into each meal.

What color do you tend to eat the most of?

February 20-21

It's the weekend! The target step goal for Saturday and Sunday is a minimum of 18,000 steps combined between the two days.

I know the weekends are difficult sometimes to keep up with the goals you have set for yourself. You may be out of your normal routine that you have through the week. You may be more on the go than normal. Or the weather may put a crimp in being able to get outside.

Try to approach weekends as you do any Monday.

- Make a plan for how you are going to get your exercise in.

- Still plan your meals as best as possible.

- If you are planning a meal out or picking up carryout, then check out the menu in advance. Focus on menu options described as grilled, steamed, roasted, poached. Avoid foods labeled as creamy, fried, cheesy, loaded. Don't be afraid to ask how a food is prepared. Broccoli may sound like a great option, but if it is sauteed in butter, then it will pack on calories you may not expect.

- Drink your water!

- If you are on the go, have some healthy snacks on hand that you can eat and stay on track. Fruit, protein bar, some raw veggies are great options.

How do you stay on track on the weekends?

We only did briefly overnight Thursday night. But I'm in MD. Did you lose power? Where are you located?
