Talking APRIL Points Challenge (this has nothing to do with WW)

APRIL CHALLENGE...Spring is here and summer is coming!! How is year going so far?? Are you achieving your goals? How about a challenge to help us along!!! It's somewhere to check in...some friendly 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 Tuesday, April 1, 2008. 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)
no 1/2 points

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 Tuesday!!!!

Wink Count me in!

Great challenge! Count me in... hopefully this will help keep me more accountable. I usually don't workout on weekends, but I'll try to for the sake of this challenge.

My April Goals:
  • Food
    Make healthier choices. Don't stuff my face. Smaller portions. Cook home more. Eat a minimum one veggie per day (versus the 0 veggies I normally eat).
  • Exercise
    Turbo Jam video or other form of exercise
  • Water
    Drinking a minimum of 100 oz (approx. 6-16 oz bottles)

4/01- 2 (Water & Exercise -- I had too much dessert, so I don't necessarily consider it a successful food day)
4/02- 4
