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

JULY CHALLENGE!!! July 1st and a Monday, what a wonderful combination for starting fresh or pushing through! 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, 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 type out everything I'm going to eat and when for each week, and when/if/what I'm going to do for exercise. It kinda looks like:
Food: 1,200-1,800 calories
Water: 56 oz
Exercise 30-90 minutes/day

01: 4
02: 4 (Have lots of parties coming up this week. Can't believe I stuck to plan so well despite party #1)
03: 1 (went over the planned calories by having some doritos and dip and a 90 calorie fudge bar. Went maybe 400 calories over my plan, but was still at a defecit for my weight. Didn't drink as much water as I planned either, but DID get in a +4 mile hike with a friend!) (Party #2)
04: 1 (Got in a run on the treadmill. Didn't really drink much water, and definately went over on calories) (party #3)
05: 3 (negative on the H2O. party #4&5)
06: 4 (party #6)

07: 3 (didn't exercise)
08: 2 (poor eating)
09: 2 (poor eating)
10: 4
11: 3 (didn't exercise)
12: 2 (poor eating)
13: 4

14: 4 (party #7 but still TOTALLY stuck to plan)
15: 4
16: 4
17: 4
18: 3 (I only exercised 24 minutes instead of my minimum of 30, so I lost a point for that)
19: 4=60 points so far (I got home from work and had only drank 30oz, so I've been chugging water this evening)
20: 2 (ALMOST stayed within my alloted calories. party #8)

21: 0 (people just kept showing up at our house and I couldn't get my run it)
22: 3 (food poisoning from the day before helped me stay under my calorie limit, but didn't get my exercise in)
23: 4
24: 2 (negative on the water and didn't exercise....but got a TON of house work done)
25: 2 (ate good, that's about it)
26: 2 (camping. Ate good)
27: 1 (got a good walk in, but that's it. camping)

28: 1 (got another walk in, but didn't eat good or drink water. camping)=77 points so far
29: 4 (yay for being back on track!!)
30: 3 (didn't drink much water)
31: 0 (that's right....ending the month with a zero)
