JANUARY CHALLENGE...the holidays are OVER! It's a brand new year and a brand new start!! How about a challenge to help us kick it off! It's somewhere to check in...some friendly 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 tomorrow, January 1, 2008. 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 TOMORROW!!!!

Water - 2 L a day
Exercise - starting slow with this one, 20 minutes of some kind of purposeful movement everyday

For the first time in a LONG time, I'm in.

My food plan -- stick to my personally-modified low-carb plan.
Water -- actually drink some! I want to get in at least 6 glasses a day
Exercise -- actually do some!!! It's been so long since I've exercised that ANY amount each day would make me happy for now.

1 hour weights every other day, skipped only if too sore

Food Goals: Set calories on weekly basis, and stick to them daily

1.12-1-only water, and WAY too much alcohol and bad dancing. (could that count as my exercise?)
1.13-2-still over on calories, except none of it was from alcohol today. This is stopping tomorrow since I'm home from my sister's wedding now. I didn't journal my food for 2 days and I'm sure I'm over, not terribly, but I know I cannot keep good number counts in my head...

I am going to start late too but after the holidays I need a kick in the pants!

food- Stick to my carb count, 10g for breakfast, 20 for lunch and dinner. And stick to my planned snacks.
water- at least 80 ounces
exercise - walking (30-50 minutes) or pilates daily, which hopefully will mean I'll do something 5 days out of the week.

Here's to being "GREAT in 2008!!"

And its better late than never....

Food: 2pts. My food plan this month is to not have any soda pop, or fast food at all. To stay away from junk food (pizza, chips, candy, etc..), and to watch my portions (only 1 serving, of anything I'm gonna eat, and no seconds!!) Also to try to eat fruits and veggies each day (I'm horrible at that).

Water: 1pt. 64oz a day

Exercise: 1pt. 30 minutes of ANYTHING at least 6 times a week.

So here we go!!
