I am going to make this one sooo sweet.  I am on Team RED (Group 4) and "We have mashed up this far". 

  • Won the Salad Challenge.
  • Won the Physical Challenge  
Shout out to all the other groups and they did well but it does feel good to see the determination of my crew.  I think I have the best group.  If any of my team members reading this....YA'LL ROCK!! 

Just so you can appreciate the effort put in my Team RED let me share some details of the two Challenges.  First up,  the Salad Stalker.  The whole point was to put together a salad in 15 minutes.  Then we go 3 mystery ingredients and had to rely on our knowledge so far and decide if the mystery ingredients were healthy to use.

Well least I sound haughty let me say that other groups had phenomenal efforts.  Its just that my group managed to get over the lil hump.  Oh yeah we had to watch portion size of the salad.  Thats really important.  

PiZZaZZ! - A unique creation, which burst of flavor.

Pizzazz was the name I gave to the salad (yeah, corny I know).  It had Romaine lettuce,  a variety of green peppers,  cherry tomatoes, Parsnips, Spring Onions and Avocado pears.  The dressing was homemade vinaigrette with Balsamic vinegar, olive oil and a dash of sugar (we lost points for the sugar).  As the beverage was V8 Fusion, 100% juice.  It was awesome!!! The total calories for the meal 225. Oh by the way we made the salad a full meal by adding Grilled Salmon as a protein, this was also included in the calorie count.

   The Physical challenge was another story and not so easy!!!  First of all,  we had to be at the Fort Charlotte at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning. A SATURDAY MORNING!  Well we made it and ready to go.  There were changes made because of unforeseen circumstances.  Yet that didn't make it easier.  When we got underway here is what all the participating teams had to do:
  • Station 1 - An uphill run then a lap around the track
  • Station 2 and 3 - A suicide
  • Station 4 and 5 - Tyre toss (I did Station 5)
  • Station 6 and 7 - Water Hug (This is running about 50 meters with a 5 gallon bottle);  Station 7 also had to run downhill
  • Station 8 - An uphill run and then 2 laps around the track
Every member of the team was had to complete a Station.  This was a total team effort and we pulled it off.  So we will feel this in the morning,  I starting to feel it now lol Where is my Panadol?

We are the Champs!!! Two straight!
