100 lb. Club - Point Challenge Plans

View Full Version : Point Challenge Plans

The Point Challenge which was created by Sandi (JacobsMommy) is a monthly challenge. We challenge just ourselves. Whatever your "plan or diet" is, you can succeed at the challenge.

The details: You can earn up to 4 points per day during the challenge.

Food: You can earn 2 points for following your food plan, whatever that may be.

Water: You can earn 1 point for chugging a certain amount of water set by you at the start of the challenge.

Exercise: You can earn 1 point a day for following your exercise routine.

Sandy "tracks" the points daily, and will announce the "winner" at the end of the challenge. Everyone wins though...the more points you earn, the better you are doing, the better you feel and in the end, the better you will look.

Even if you only earn 2 points a day...that's alot more than what you would if you were just "toying" around.

What is you're monthly challange?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I was usually able to get my water in, no problem. That's not a challenge. So for February, I'd like to up my water intake to 96 oz. 3 liters. That *will* be a challenge. :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

According to the kidney doc, I cannot have 3 liters of water a day. 2 is where I should be.


That is when my last appt was. My dr said if I was going to have 16oz of green tea in the am, I have to skip one of the liters of water. :(

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Since I am doing the clinical trial, I CAN HAVE AS MUCH WATER AS I WANT!!!!! :D:D:D :dance:

Feb will be my first time in the points challenge.

My February goals are modest ... as I posted in #179, dh is taking a short-term job, out of state. Holding down the home-front, (kids, school, sports, etc) as well as working a full time job will all fall on my shoulders ... I don't know HOW I'll fit in exercise ... given that I'll be shortening my lunch break and I'll have to do work at home after the kids go to bed cuz I still won't spend 7.5hrs in the office every day --- so it's more important than EVER that I have a place like this to 'be accountable'.

My plan

1. eating: continue w/ my self-designed plans of LOTS of lo-carb veggies, some protein, some dairy and just a bit of starch.

2. water: 48oz/day ... this is very low but it's been so cold at work I've been only drinking about 24 oz a day ... and at least 16 of that is after dinner.

3. exercise: 20 minutes of SOMETHING each day, at this point I'll give myself credit even if it's not aerobic ...


01-28-2003, 04:52 PM

03-02-2003, 07:51 PM
hi. i have had a horrible six weeks but am finally back and ready to start again. miraculously i have not gained any weight (or gained it and lost it) so i am at my old numbers. i was very depressed that in six weeks i lost no weight but i changed that to a positive that at least i did not gain!!!!

my plan is as follows:
Food: 6-8 ounces of protein, whole grain carbs and lots of fresh veggies and fruit. i will drink my protein shake in the morning even though i hate it. no more sugar and no refined carbs.

Water: 80 ounces minimum per day

Exercise: one tape per day minimum and walk my daughter to school and back on pretty days.

Lifestyle: i will begin journaling again, get the house back in order this week and continue looking for a fulltime job. i will start scrapbooking again and work on my art every day for a bit. life is not meant to be survived but lived to the fullest.

thanks ladies for being here. i have not posted in awhile but have certainly kept up with all that is going on...

03-12-2003, 01:19 AM
Latecomer...but here's my plan:

food: my own plan to help ease the symptoms of PCOS -- lower carbing, but not super low -- and no sweets except Sundays

exercise: yoga daily/toning with rubber bands M/T and Th/F; 2 days per week-walking/4 days per week- bellydancing for fitness video or other cardio

water: 80-100 oz.

adjusted plan for April challenge:

food: max 1900 calories
water: min 1.5 L

04-04-2003, 03:06 AM
OK here is my plan for April even if I am getting started 3 days in the hole. :lol:
Food will be under 1800 calories a day. I was sticking with 1500 but somedays I want more and I get depressed when I know at 4 that I am at 1200 and can't eat much for dinner.

Water will be to drink at least 80 ounces of water each day. A benefit of drinking water like that is I stop drinking the diet soda. Ihonestly prefer water anyhow.

Exercise will be 30 minutes a day minimum. It can be the treadmill or a exercise tape. Just that it has to be at least 30 minutes at one time.

I'm gonna modify the points a bit for me. This gives me incentive, but still rewards me for partial victories. ("All or nothing" tends to scare me and make me say "Nothing, then. It's too hard to do it all." I need small steps.)

GOAL: 1500-2200 calories a day.

2 points for intaking 1800 calories or fewer.
1 point for intaking 1800-2000 calories.
One "free day" (usually Sunday) where calories don't count, and I get 2 points anyway.

GOAL: MOVE my butt at least five days a week

1 point for doing 15 minutes or more of accumulated activity (walking/gardening/cleaning/stairs/biking) or doing a "formal" workout of whatever length (cardio, lifting, Pilates, yoga)
Two "rest" days (usually weekends) where I don't worry about it, and get the point anyway.

GOAL: DRINK more fluids

1 point for drinking at least four glasses of non-sugared drinks (water, tea, juice, milk)

Updated to change the requirements -- fewer calories, and free days from exercise.

08-29-2003, 12:26 AM
My September plan -

Food: Eat my WW 22 target points daily. Do not eat any activity points and eat only up to 15 of my 35 flex points per week.

Exercise-1 miles of WATP. This pg wiped me out so this will be my downfall

- 1500 calories or less
- eat breakfast everyday (I still havenít mastered this! So September is the month to buckle down and do it!)

- park as far from school as possible for the extra exercise
- walk for 45 minutes every school day on my lunch break or during a study, and 1 hour on Saturday and Sunday
- do a minimum of 15 minutes on the elliptical every night except Monday and Thursday
- do full body weight routine on Monday and Thursday

I was usually able to get my water in, no problem. That's not a challenge. So for February, I'd like to up my water intake to 96 oz. 3 liters. That *will* be a challenge. :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

According to the kidney doc, I cannot have 3 liters of water a day. 2 is where I should be.


That is when my last appt was. My dr said if I was going to have 16oz of green tea in the am, I have to skip one of the liters of water. :(

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Since I am doing the clinical trial, I CAN HAVE AS MUCH WATER AS I WANT!!!!! :D:D:D :dance:I am bumping this thread. Where are half these ppl? I miss Denise, Angi, Kitty, everyone!

My plan is the same, but to make sure I don't "get lost" again.
