Default OCTOBER Points challenge! (This has nothing to do with Weight Watchers)

OCTOBER CHALLENGE...month 10 already...can you believe it?? How are you doing this year?? Are you meeting your goals? How about a challenge to help us keep it going! 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 October 1, 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????

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

I'm ready for the challenge! I need to be here, even though I don't post as often as I should. One of my personal challenges to myself is to post here at 3FC daily.

My food plan is my modified version of Atkins. Basically, it's as low-carb as possible for breakfast/lunch/snacks. Dinner is basically whatever. This plan worked for me before, and I NEED to get back on it.

Water -- 64 OZ a day. Not a lot to some people -- HUGE for me. I have been drinking more water than normal for me lately. Then again, normal for me used to be NO water.

Exercise -- 20 minutes of SOMETHING every day. Whether it be walking laps at work during break, doing a Walk Away the Pounds video, doing an old Sweatin' to the Oldies tape, using the Wii/Wii Fit -- ANYTHING, as long as it's exercise.

Oct 1 -- 4
Oct 2 -- 4
Oct 3 -- 3 Sick over the weekend, and didn't get any exercise in on Saturday or Sunday...
Oct 4 -- 3

Okay Ladies I havent done a challenge in a while and im finally back and dedicated to getting this weight off.

My food plan is Calorie counting. My daily average goal is 1600 cals so i will say no less than 1400 and no more than 1700.

My daily water intake goal is going to be 80oz a day. I can usually make this at work but for some reason on my days off i can never quiet get it up that high.

Exercise goal is do exercise for 30min a day. Either a DVD or jogging or bike riding. I will not count the leizurely walks that i take at the park with my boyfriend. The exercise has to get my heart Rate up.
