Default MARCH 2013 Points Challenge (This has nothing to do with WW)

MARCH CHALLENGE!!! We are well into 2013 now. The excitement of a "Brand New Year" has worn off and now we need to dig our heels in and continue to do the work. 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 March 1, 2013. 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 think this is great, because - while I usually find it easier to stay OP for food and/or water most days - I almost never stay completely on track for exercising. My body is also bigger than it has ever been this time around, so finding the motivation to move it and work out has been harder for me than it was last time I lost any weight. This is the first time I've tried one of these challenges, so we'll see how it goes!

Exercise: 30 mins a day, but alternating to 15 mins for every 3rd day.
Food: Between 1200-1600 calories.
Water: A minimum of 96 oz a day.


MARCH:

01: 3 pts - No workout.
02: 4 pts.
03: 4 pts.
04: 3 pts - No workout.
05: 3 pts - No workout, I am sucking at this!
06: 4 pts.
07: 4 pts.
08: 4 pts.
09: 3 pts. - No workout.
10: 4 pts.
11: 2 pts. - Under calories...a little sick, so only about 840. Ugh.
12: 3 pts. - No workout, still a little blah.
13: 2 pts. - Under calories again, but up to 1040 today. Starting yoga.
14: 4 pts.
15: 2 pts. - Under calories.
16: 2 pts. Under calories.
17: 3 pts. - No workout.
18: 4 pts.
19: 4 pts.
20: 3 pts. - Not enough of a workout.
21: 3 pts. - No workout.
22: 4 pts.
23: 3 pts. - No workout.
24: 4 pts.
25: 4 pts.
26: 4 pts.
27: 4 pts.
28: 4 pts.
29: 4 pts.
30: 2 pts. - Out of town; no exercise/not enough water.
31: 0 pts. - Out of town; no exercise/no water/off plan foods. Oh, holidays... ><



Total Points: 101/124

I only got 3 points today; did well on the food plan and great with the water (I got in over 144 oz!), but I didn't end up getting in my workout. Will definitely change that tomorrow.

Got all four points today, woo! Haha. Workout was killer...I really let myself get way too out of shape. Barely made it, lol. Water was great, and I actually had to eat an extra meal today as well as eat a cup of yogurt as I write this, because I almost didn't get enough calories in! Which is unusual; I think I was just really busy today.
