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

October...fall is here...beatiful trees, cool nights. Winter is coming. How have you done this year?? There is still time!! 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 (no columns please). 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 Sunday, October 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 SUNDAY!!!!

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 I have created a new Point Challenge Plans post for 2006 becuase the old one started in 2002 and it was pretty outdated.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

Thumbs up The Plan of Action

My Plan -

1. I use Body for Life and adjust the carbs - no whites
2. Water only - 80 ounces per day.
3. I use BFL weight training - 6 days of 60 minutes plus and one day of minimum of 30 minutes as my day of rest.

Day 1 - 4 pts
Day 2 - 4 pts
DAy 3 - 4 pts
Day 4 - 4 pts
Day 5 - 4 pts
Day 6 - Determined to put together 7 days

SANDI - I am off camping for the long weekend, so exercise is just survival, seriously, we are hiking so I am really sure I will meet my pt goal. Also, up in the mountains, no snacking or at least nothing off plan, and the water is packed and ready to go. I'll post on Tuesday the 10th.
