Smile Winter '09-'10 Challenge

Don't miss out on the fun and WONDERFUL Prizes - a NEW habit! AND a "virtual award"!!!!!!!!!

About our new Challenge -

This challenge will begin on 11/15 (the day after our current challenge ends). The challenge will end on 2/15 (90 days later). The reason for a 90-day challenge is that research says it takes 90 days of doing a particular behavior to form a "habit."

NOTE: although challenge begins on 11/15, everyone can save her space now.

Anyone who wants to be part of the Winter Challenge will post ONE (1) message indicating her interest. NOTE: this is not a thread where we discuss stuff with each other. Each of us gets just ONE (1) post & we edit that everday to post our progress. In our original post, we will include whatever information we want and indicate the new habit that we want to form. [For me, it will be eating 6-9 servings of vegetables/fruit per day.]

We can earn up to two (2) points/day. One (1) point for posting and one (1) point for actually doing our proposed habit.

At the end of the challenge (February 15) the person with the most points will win our virtual award



From the day of winning until the end of the next challenge (the Spring '10 Challenge), the winner will post our virtual award as part of her signature (or as her avatar if she prefers). She will be known far and wide as the WINNER of the Winter '09-'10 Challenge until there is a new winner to take the trophy from her.


Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Lynn

I'll join, too! I need to get off my duff and MOVE, and that's my goal... it's small (but we have to start somewhere, yes?)... TBA

11-4-09 - Okay... I'm going to commit to at LEAST 2 Sun Salutations every day and at LEAST 10 minutes of walking, be it tapes or the great outdoors. It doesn't sound
like much, but it's a tremendous step for me!
11-15 - I forgot! (don't deserve a point)
11-16 - got off to a NO start yesterday! I'm going to try today! I pulled out the walking tapes this morning... that's a step in the right direction! (1 point)
11-17 - okay, okay... Thursday is my last tax class, and I'll have some time to do something other than studying. I promise myself!! Don't shout LOSER just yet!
(don't deserve a point)
11-19 - at least, I got my sun salutation stretches done! That's a start!! (1.5 pt.)
11-21 - stretches done (1.5 pt)
11-24 - Blech! I haven't done anything except the sun salutation stretches.... Those feel so good, I don't object too much! (1.5 pt.)
12-6 - In my mind, I've always thought that I'll be able to exercise once I get to 220# and can bend again... well, it's tentative, but I'm showing 225.4 this morning (tentative
because it varies from day to day... and tomorrow is the official HatedScaleDay. So, soon? (1 pt.)

MY PLACE, please and thank you!

Ooooh! I just realized what my new habit needs to be! Drinking eight glasses (or 64 oz.) of water a day! I really slack off on that one, and it makes a huge difference when you actually do it every day! Yay! I have my goal!!!!!!!

11/16 - Just now guzzling down my last 8 ounces; it's been a watery day!!!!
11/17 - did it!
11/20 - did it on the 18th & 19th; forgot to check in. Grrrrr. Did it today.
11/21 - nope, darn it.

I decided that the habit I want to have is to do some kind of exercise or physical activity every day. Because of my work schedule (12 hour shifts) on work days it is hard to fit in much of anything else (mostly just time for work, eat, get ready to go to work and work). But I figure that even if it is just as little as 5 or 10 minutes of something ~ that is more and better than just sitting on my rear.

11-15-09 - checked in, but nothing I guess that I could count (unless being up and down following Maddie around for 3 hours counts for anything?) 1 point

Default Count me in!!

Yes, count me in on this challenge. I'm new to the site. But, my first habit to change is lowering my intake of caffine! Switching from coffee to no-caffine herbal tea in the morning (heelllooo headache for the next three days!)
