Default DECEMBER Points Challenge (has nothing to do with WW)

December...can you even believe it? Just 1 more month left in 2008!!! How have you done with achieving your goals you set for this year? How about a last minute challenge? 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 December 1st 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) Sorry, 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 tomorrow!

Note: When I do the final totals at the end of the month, I only include people who have participated 15 days or more.

The food: Eat clean with a focus on lean protein & healthy carbs, stay within calorie range 1300-1500, track every single bite.
The water: 80 ounces.
The exercise: Every day, 45 minutes at the very minimum. Weight lifting, gym cardio, rawr!

December- yes! It's been a great year with more progress than I ever could have dreamed of, last year at this time I topped the scales at my heaviest and was very, very unhappy with myself. I had no idea that I could change my life so quickly, what one year could bring and how quickly that year would pass. I feel wonderful, anti-gravity wonderful, I look entirely different - people no longer recognize me (in a good way), I'm working towards my goal weight, the local Biggest Loser's final weigh in happens mid-month (and I WILL win that $600!), and the holidays are upon us! I'm determined to start the New Year with a bang and will make December my best month yet.

Ready to rock? I am. Let's do it!

21: 4
22: 4
23: 4
24: 4 Almost didn't exercise, I killed my legs with squats the other day and can barely move. Felt better once I got to the gym. Shew.
25: 4
26: 4
27: 4
28: 4
29: 4
30: 4
31: 4 Yay! Being the DD not only means I'm a responsible citizen, but that I have NO hangover!

December results in a 14.4# loss! WOO!
