Default MAY Points Challenge (this has nothing to do with WW)

MAY 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 Thursday, May 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 Thursday!!!!

Food; 1600-1800 calories per day
Water; 2 litres
Exercise; 6 days a week: an hour of walking, or 30 minutes pilates/resistance tubes or 30 minutes on the elliptical. (I like to mix it up.. usually picking two of these a day depending on how I feel/the weather outside for walking).

5/2 - 4
5/3 - 4

5/4 - 4
5/5 - 4

*business trip goals* - carry water bottle everywhere. invite others on 'networking' walks during the breaks. pilates every morning. eat mostly veggies.. only take sweet stuff if I know I can take a single bite

5/18 - 4 but I felt totally out of control with my food. It was not nice.
5/19 - 4
5/20 - 1- and a lot of stomach pain... I felt totally out of control. last time it was a 2 impulse light babybels and a piece of pizza (that I ended up making my dinner) today.. it was catered dessert squares. those tiny ones on a platter. I had 5 and a piece of pizza. plus a six inch sub. I am officially sabotaging myself.
