Default AUGUST Points challenge!!! (This has NOTHING to do with WW)

August, 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 (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! I will calculate and post the totals, on a weekly basis.

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 TODAY, Tuesday, August 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 TODAY!!!!

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 I have created a new Point Challenge Plans post for 2006 becuase the old one started in 2002 and it was pretty outdated.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!)

Day 3 - 2
Day 4 - 2
Day 5 - 2
Day 6 - 2

I haven't been doing my exercise or water but at least I have not been eating like a crazy person. June and July have been the worst eating months I can remember in the last 15-20 years! I seem to be slowly getting back on track.

August 9 - 2 points
August 10 - 2 points
August 11 - 0 points
August 12 - 2 points
August 13 - 0 points
August 14 - 2 points

Have been doing pretty good with food and losing (1-2 pounds/week) but zilch with exercise and water. I guess I should be grateful for the good and improve in the areas lacking.
