Default JUNE Points Challenge (this has NOTHING to do with WW)

JUNE...Say it isn't so. It's month 6 already!! How are you doing so far this year?? Why not join our challenge to help keep you on the straight and narrow? If you are just beginning, starting over or are doing great - this is the place for you! It's somewhere to check in...some freindly competition. Come join us for our monthly challenge!!

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. (But a catch-up post is always fine too!!) But instead of there being a post for every day. Simply reply to this post with the day that you are posting for and put your points. I will still calculate and post the totals, but they will be in this post also. Don't worry about it getting too huge, I will be working to keep it trimmed down, once I have totaled the points. If you would like to post once and just update that post, put all the days in for March and I will know not to delete it.

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 Thursday, June 1, 2006. 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)

Post here with how many points you've earned for a given day, and I will keep track. We'll see who's 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???? It starts THURSDAY!!!!

If you list your "plan of attack" here, please make a point to also post it in the Point Challenge Plans. I delete all the posts after I have tallied so this thread doesn't become unmanageable, but it's nice to be able to go look at what someone's plan is. I have created a new Point Challenge Plans post for 2006 becuase the old one started in 2002 and it was pretty outdated. So please repost your plan (if you want to!)

Hello Sandi...I'm very new to this particular "diet" and 3FCs though I claim to be a lifelong professional dieter.....I have listed my June plan (rather lengthy...you'll find I'm rarely at a loss for words) under the Points Challenge Plans link...hope I did this right

3 4 points...though I really don't deserve them....still skipped a meal supplement but did have 1/2 cup egg beaters and 1/8 cup non fat cheese which was the same protein amount and still 0 carbs and fats.....But this is the last day I get to cheat.....
4 4 points
5 2 points...water and exercise....don't get points for food...I didn't weigh my dinner meat so it could have been 3oz of ground turkey or 5 ounces...and I know I used more than the 1T fat free dressing on my salad...more like 2 or 3.....reminder I HAVE to measure

7 3 points (didn't make my water)

I'm in!

Day 1 - 1 point
Day 2 - 2 points
Day 3 - 2 points
Day 4 - 1 point

I was forced from my home on the 1st of the month due to an adverse reaction to paint fumes. I can't say I handled things very well from a food perspective (it brought up a lot of feelings!!!!) but today I seem to be back on track and home once again (for good I hope!)

Day 5 - 3 points (back on track except no exercise)
Day 6 - 1 point (emotional eating)
Day 7 - 4 points
Day 8 - 3 points
Day 9 - 3 points
Day 10 - 1 points
Day 11 - 2 point
Day 12 - 1 (exercise!)

I have this why bother, I don't seem to care attitude lately.

Day 13 - 2
Day 14 - 1
Day 15 - 1
Day 16 - 1
Day 17 - 2
Day 18 - 2
Day 19 - 1
Day 20 - 3
Day 21 - 2
Day 22 - 3
Day 23 - 2
Day 24 - 2
Day 25 - 3
Day 26 - 2
Day 27 - 3
Day 28 - 4 (Finally!)
Day 29 - 0 (Ughhh)
Day 30 - 1
Day 31 - 3

This has been my roughest month since joining 3FC last summer. In fact it seems like my roughest month in many many years. I am going to see about getting some professional help on Wednesday. While I haven't gained a lot of weight my eating feels pretty whacked and out of control.

Hey there everyone I'm in too ...
Food: Eat smartly and keep a close eye on portion control, average daily calories 1300, I don't really believe in depriving but I do compromise with myself, if I have a Dr. Pepper during the day then I won't have my evening goodie (normally jello or a pudding).
Exercise: As my personal trainer says as long as I continuously move for 30 minutes a day it's all good, so I try to vary my physical activity daily.
Water: 64oz. at least a day

1 - 4 points
2 - 4 points
3 - 2 points - fell off the food wagon when we went out with some friends
4 - 4 points - we took a great walk with or fur babies and then played in the pool with them
5 - 3 points - missed my workout today

1 - 3
2 - 3
3 - 3

Whoops! Forgot about vacation!
