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

APRIL 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 April 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.

Ooooooo I like this! I wanna play for sure! I need extra accountability right now.

Do you guys just update your original post to add points daily or copy and paste into a brand new post every day?


Food: 1500 net calories or less
Exercise: Weights 3-4/wk, Yoga 2-3/wk, Running 1-2/wk

04/07: 4 points (1379 net calories, yoga & bonus weights/cardio, 4++ water)

Week 1 points total: 26 -- all goals met!

04/08: 3 points (1459 net calories, rest day, 4+++ water)

04/13: 2 points (2730 net calories, Warrior Dash Run, 4+++++ water)
04/14: 3 points (1447 net calories, rest day, 4+++ water)

Week 2 points total: 20 -- slacked on workouts this week, calorie overages were semi-planned but still overdone.

04/16: 4 points (307 net calories**, LONG run, 4+++ water)
04/17: 3 points (1489 net calories, no workout, 4+++ water)
04/18: 3 points (1474 net calories, no workout, 4+++ water) Sucking at the workouts this week!
04/19: 3 points (1354 net calories, no workout, 4+++ water)
04/20: 1 point (2995 net calories, no workout, 4++ water)

04/26: 1 point (too many cals, no workout, 4+ water)
04/27:
04/28:

04/29:
04/30:

**I had 1384 calories, but had a very long run at the end of the day, was too late for me to eat back 1000+ calories. Not typical!!!


I may not be back the rest of this month. I'm getting back on track, just need to refocus and spend a little less time on boards. I'm driving myself too crazy. Good luck everyone!

This is probably my favorite thing to join in on. I have a bad habit of giving up when I can't meet my goals, so I've decided to start off a little easier this time around.

Food Goal : At or under MFP calorie limit.
Water Goal: 16 oz a day.
Exercise goal: 15 minutes a day.

We're wrappin' up day 4! How is everyone doing???

So far so good over here! Since I'm just coming out of 2 months of maintenance it's been hard adjusting back into a calorie deficit. I've found my workouts to be much more taxing that's for sure.

t0rn, sounds wise to me. This challenge really helps keep me OP, too. I worked late yesterday, and didn't get home until after 9pm..I SO did not want to do a workout on top of mowing all day, but I thought about the points challenge and was, "I need those points!" lol...no idea why it makes a difference, but it does help!

Michelle, welcome to the challenge! that's a LOT of water. I did 90 oz/day for 2 weeks, and by the end of it, I was so sick of water and spending half my life in the bathroom, lol.

Stephanie, didn't see your post earlier. Going good here. Food prep is vital for me, for sure. Had one day this week where I dropped the ball, forgot to thaw out my snacks and cook when I was supposed to, woke up with nothing ready. Made a run to Costco for the rescue rotisserie chicken, steamed up some broccoli, but ate up the last of that tonight, so have to cook again tomorrow for the weekend. I usually cook up 4 days worth of meals at a time, put them all in portable containers, voila. I get so busy some days that it's the only way I can be sure of eating clean: it has to either be good cold (like shrimp or fruit), or cooked and ready to reheat in the microwave.
