I am beyond excited about the response for the Colourful Smoothie Challenge for July! Seriously, you guys are awesome! It’s going to be one awesome month!
Okay, so before Sunday comes upon us (July 1st), I want to clarify a few things for the challenge.
Cassandra emailed me with a great question…
“Hello Charissa! I am going to attempt to make it through your smoothie challenge! It sounds exciting and very interesting :) I just wanted to clarify the point system. All but the tweeting photos are a one time point opportunity correct? For example, if I make one of your smoothies I get the points just the one time? Thank you and I look forward to the challenge!!!” Cassandra – @runfortoday
Answer: You can make as many of my smoothies as you want for points (it will count as 3 – not in addition to the 1 point of a smoothie).
I think it’s great if you share the image and share about the challenge on your site too – I won’t set a limit on that, but in order for me to count the points for it you MUST link back to me (so I can keep track). I’d love it if you included any of the images from the initial challenge post to it!
You can share about it with your friends on Twitter up to 3x (or as much as you want, but it will be only up to 3x!)
The 5 points for drinking a smoothie every day of the month is just once.

Hope that added some clarity! The whole challenge is really quite simple, just tweet me your smoothies WITH the hastag #colourfulsmoothie – some of you have been tweeting already (thanks ladies!), but are using different hashtags from #colorfulpalate, #thecolourfulpalate, and #colorfulsmoothies. There’s just too many to track. I will be counting the hastags with #colourfulsmoothie – spelled the Canadian way. However, because most of you are from the US, I will check the hastag #colorfulsmoothie as well. Those are the ONLY TWO hastags I will be counting for points.
Also, if you want to qualify for the weekly prize you must comment and say you’re participating in the challenge on the main post!
If you have any other questions just let me know on my Facebook or my email (email@example.com)
Okay…whew…now that we’ve got that covered, I wanted to let you into some of my other goals for the July Challenge.
As you know, I’m going to be taking my one smoothie a day just a step further – it will replace one meal in my day, probably breakfast or lunch. I’m traveling quite a bit in July too, so I’ll be bring my Vega Energizing Smoothie & FitMixer Protein (and bring some nut milk) so I can still keep to my goals without a blender! A few people have mentioned they’re on-the-go too, so these smoothie pouches are a FANTASTIC way to stick to the challenge!
I’ll also be really upping my water intake. My goal is to drink half my body weight in ounces (so if you weigh 200 pounds you’d drink 100 ounces of water in a day).
(love my camelback water bottle!)
Take my GNC ProSculpt before I exercise and try to get a good workout in 5-6 days a week. Okay people, I am loving ProSculpt – it gives me tons of energy for a workout, which is awesome for me (I get weak working out with breakfast, NOT SO with this!) I took it before I did Jillian’s Shed and Shred this morning (1 hour and 15 min. of pure intensity – whew!) and it totally gave me that extra edge to push trough the hard parts. After that workout, my hair was so wet it looked like I stepped out of the shower – such a crazy intense workout!)
I’ll also be tracking my protein, fiber, and calories on MyFitnessPal (awesome app I just discovered – here are some more of my favourite fitness apps!). I love the bar scanning feature – makes it SO easy!
Eat more of this goodness…
And take my nature’s multivitamin daily…how can I say how much I love spirulina!
I have more goals, but I’m running out of time! I have to leave to do a concert tonight, so I have lots to do before I go! I’m SO excited about doing this with you…I have some fun reviews coming up, recipes, and workouts!
What are your goals for July and this challenge?
