October...that means fall is here and the holidays are on their way! Are you achieving your goals you set for this year? We only have a few months left! How about a challenge to help us along? 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 October 1st 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) Sorry, no 1/2 points.

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!

The food: Eat clean with a focus on lean protein & healthy carbs, stay within calorie range 1500, track every single bite. No junk - no Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins for me this year!
The water: 80 ounces.
The exercise: Every day, 45 minutes at the very minimum. Cycling, boxing, gym cardio and strength training. In addition to use my car as little as possible, replacing with walking and cycling. Rawr!

Lots of biking this month, such perfect weather for it. I'll be keeping my sights focused tightly this month as I want to look rocking hot for the holidays (shock everyone I haven't seen since last year) and stay on track to finish weight loss for 2008 and be a maintainer for 2009.


October exercise minutes: 3704/1395
October loss: 13 pounds!

10/28 = 1
10/29 = 2
10/30 = 2

So the month has been brutal. obviously. I am full swing into my new job and dealing with a lot more work related stress. I did just spend $800 bucks on a new wardrobe and I'm pretty sure I need to take the winter as a break and just maintain my weight loss. I honestly cannot afford to keep buying new clothing everything 3 months.

I think I'll refocus on weight loss in March or so. I am a comfortable size 14/16 and honestly... smaller than my goal size when I started. I think I'd like to get to a 12 but I am not in a hurry.

Goal is to be under 200 before Christmas
