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

FEBRUARY CHALLENGE...So we are now in month 2. Is this going to be your year? How are you doing?? How about a challenge to help us kick it off! It's somewhere to check in...some friendly competition. 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. That way you always know where you are and so do I!

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 February 1st 2009. 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 Sunday!

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 Plan:
  • Food: Eat clean and lean, stay within range - 1600-2100 cals, log it and remember to take supplements.
  • Exercise: Strength train + intervals 5x per week, with low pressure stuff the other 2x. At least 60 minutes a day, every day - doing something!
  • Wawa: A gallon or so depending on activity levels, kick this silly diet soda habit to da curb.
Let's do it!

My major goal is to incorporate more activity EVERY day. I got my pedometer and will not give myself an activity point unless I get more then 10,000 steps and do an activity of some kind. Another goal of mine is to stick with this ALL month. I will keep track in my journal as well so I can fill in days that I could not get to a computer. February is my kick butt month... kick off month to a kick butt year and life.
