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

JULY CHALLENGE!! Summer is here. Better weather, more opportunity to get outside and be active. Are you doing what it takes to get to your goal? We all could use a little help, so why not join this challenge?! It's somewhere to check in...some friendly competition.

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 July 1, 2012. 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 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'll give it a whirl.

Food: less than 1500 calories a day. I am tracking this on My Fitness Pal.
Exercise/movement: at least 30 minutes of verifiable exercise daily. Housework does not count! It's got to be something that I can track on Fitocracy.
Water: at least 64 oz. a day

1: 4
2: 4 (I almost didn't exercise but got it in anyway, in spite of not wanting to.)
3: 4
4: 0 (I didn't do anything on plan at all.)
5: 4 (Back on track!)
6: 1 (Got in my water but went over by 166 calories on my food and didn't exercise.)
7: 4
8: 4
9: 2 (Got in my water and my exercise but had 33 too many calories today. Oh well.)
10: 0 (Ate too much, didn't work out, and only drank 32 oz. of water. Will do better tomorrow.)
11: 1 (Got in my water but overate and didn't work out.)
12: 2 (Overate but got in the water and the workout.)
13: 0 (See my blog to find out how terrible I did today.)
14: 0 (Bad day...)
15: 1 (Got in my exercise but nothing else.)
16: 4
17: 2 (Got in the food but not enough water or exercise.)
18: 4
19: 1 (Ate too much and didn't drink enough water.)
20: 2 (Definitely had less than 1500 calories but no water or exercise. Spent the day in the ER for food poisoning from the night before.)
21: 4
22: 4
23: 4
24: 4
25: 3 (No exercise today.)
26: 4
27: 3 (No exercise today.)
28: 4
29: 0 (Not good for the plan today, but it happens.)
30: 4
31: 4

I finished the month strong even though I had a hiccup earlier in the month! I am proud of completing this!
