Default MARCH Point challenge (this has nothing to do with WW)

March Madness...Spring is coming! Are you were you want to be? Accomplishing your goals? Do you need some help? How about a challenge to help keep us on the straight and narrow for the next month? Let's start this year off right!! It's somewhere to check in...some freindly competition. Come join us for our monthly challenge!!

Since this is a monthly challenge, it will start on the 1st and the day of the month is the day of the challenge. You need to post your points on a daily basis (or whenever you can). Simply reply to this post and then edit that post as you add points (no columns please). That way you always know where you are and so do I! I will calculate and post the totals, on a weekly basis.

For those of you who have NO IDEA what I am talking about - here are the details. Sometimes we work our hardest when we are held accountable. So I challenge you to do your very best for the month and we'll see who wins!!

Here is how it's going to go. Starting tomorrow, March 1, 2007. We will try to do the 3 things that work. Food, water & exercise. You decide what your food plan is, how much water you want to drink and how much exercise you want to get every day. Every day you have the opportunity to earn 4 points.

2 point for sticking with your food plan (no splitting points here, you either stuck to your plan or you didn't)
1 point for drinking the amount of water you decided on
1 point for getting some exercise. (If you don't exercise on a given day - you DO NOT get a point for exercise - even if you planned it that way)

Post here with how many points you've earned for a given day, and I will keep track. We'll see who's did the best for the month.

This is a very cool way to keep on track, because even if you don't do so great on food, you might still get in your water and exercise to earn the points!

Who's ready for a challenge???? It starts TOMORROW!!!!

I'm in! I'm new here, 8 days in, so I don't want to set myself up for failure with too high of goals (hope that's OK):

Food: 1300-1800 cals/day, mindful of hunger/satisfied signals
Water: at least 40 oz/day
Exercise: at least of 30 minutes of some sort of exercise - walking, ellipitical, resistance training, etc.

I'm in!

Food: WW - I have 39 points/day right now, plus 35 flex for the week. ***
Water: 64 oz per day
Exercise: at least 30 mins of something

I've been doing great with the WW plan, but need to up my water intake again, as well as make sure I'm getting my exercise.

3/1 - 3 points (no exercise)
3/2 - 3 points (sigh, no exercise again)
3/3 - 3 points (need to get my butt in gear!)
3/4 - 3 points (sigh, I will have only myself to blame if I don't lose this week!)
3/5 - 3 points (you can guess which one I missed)
3/6 - 3 points (I'm noticing a theme here, I was getting so good before vacation, but having a rough time getting back into it)
3/7 - 2 points ( a little shy of my water too)
3/8 - - 3 points
3/9 - 3 points
3/10 - 1 points (probably still within my points range, especially with flexies, but it was at a party and you can never be too sure of what you're eating, so I'll just take my water...)
3/11 - 3 points
3/12 - 4 points
3/13 - 3 points
3/14 - 3 points
3/15 - 3 points
3/16 - 3 points
3/17 - 3 points
3/18 - 3 points
3/19 - 3 points
3/20 - 3 points
3/21 - 3 points
3/22 - 3 points
3/23 - 1 point
3/24 - 1 point
3/25 - 1 point
3/26 - 3 points
3/27 - 3 points
3/28 - 3 points
3/29 - 3 points
3/30 - 4 points
3/31 - 3 points

***This may seem like a huge amount of points, but I'm a BFing mom, so I get an extra 10 to start.
