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

APRIL CHALLENGE...Spring has SPRUNG!! The weather is getting nicer and the cloths will be getting smaller!! How about a challenge to get things 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 April 1, 2010. 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 think I'd like to try out one of these Points challenges! Hopefully it can help keep me accountable. =D

Eat no more then 24 (or if I get below 170 then 23) WW points every day
Drink at least 2 of my water bottle full of water.
Go to the gym and exercise 5 times a week. (probably won't be able to start getting that much in until after this week is over and my schedule goes back to normal though.)

SOrry chicks, I am going to bow out of the challenge this month... I have been doing well, I just haven't been on 3FC very often because I've been very busy.

Eat 1500-1800 calories every day.
3 litres of water per day, as recommended by personal trainer
At least 30 minutes of exercise every day, be it a fast walk with the dog or some time at the gym.
Instead of putting more numbers beside my numbers I'm going to use smilies and add it up at the end of the month...

4 points =
3 points =
2 points =
1 point =
0 points =

1)
2)
3) but it almost killed me. I'm pmsing BIG time and I work surrounded by CHOCOLATE. It's horrible.
4) I sat there watching my family eat their easter dinner/chocolate while I ate my planned meal. I'm so proud of myself!
5)
6)
7) no exercise, too sore!
8)
9) not enough water. I'm going to drink more than enough tomorrow to make up for it
10) I'm actually really proud of myself for sticking to this for this long.
11) didn't eat enough today
12)
13)
14) but barely, I'm chugging back the water as we speak, I have one more glass to make it to my 3 litres!
15) people are starting to notice and comment
16) technically got all, but my exercise was a walk and didn't really get the heart rate up, so I'm not counting it.
17)
18)
19) no gym, too sore
20)
21) no gym
22)
23)
24)
25) (it's early to say this, but it's been a great day as far as staying on plan goes )
26)
27)
28)
29)
30)

Total for the month : 105 of a possible 120
I'm quite proud of that
