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

AUGUST CHALLENGE!! Summer is winding down, we are onto the 2nd 1/2 of the year. What did you do with the 1st half? Do you have some ground to make up before the end of the year? 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 August 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.

Yay! I wanted to do this last month but didn't see it on time. So I'd like to try this month.

Food: I don't have a specific diet which I'm following, nor do I calorie count. But I do stick to the same foods and eliminate junk food as much as I can. So, I will say to lose points here it would be to binge on chocolate, cakes, biscuits, ice cream, sweets and I will include fizzy drinks in here.
Water: Drink between 2 and 2.5litres of water each day.
Exercise: Exercise at least 40-60 minutes a day apart from my planned rest days usually once a week.

08/01 4.
08/02 4.
08/03 4.
08/04 4.
08/05 3. No exercise for today. (planned)
08/06 3. Only did 30 minutes of exercise. Aim is between 40 and 60 minutes this month.
08/07 4.
08/08 4.
08/09 2. Lazy day meaning no exercise. Not enough water.
08/10 4.
08/11 3. No exercise for today. (planned)
08/12 2. Not enough water and another lazy day.
08/13 4.
08/14 4.
08/15 4.
08/16 4.
08/17 4.
08/18 4.
08/19 4.
08/20 4.
08/21 2. Food was out of control today.
08/22 4.
08/23 4.
08/24 4.
08/25 4.
08/26 3. No exercise for today. (planned)
08/27 4.
08/28 3. Not enough water today.
08/29 4.
08/30 4.
08/31 4.

Total Points: 113/124
