MARCH CHALLENGE!! Well 2011 is just flying by and it's MARCH already. 2011 is going to be different...right? How's it going so far? Do you need some accountability? Join us for our monthly challenge!!! It's somewhere to check in...some friendly competition.

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. That way you always know where you are and so do I!

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 March 1, 2011. 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???? :lifter:

Note: When I do the final totals at the end of the month, I only include people who have participated 15 days or more.

2 points for food: 1600 calories and under
1 point for water: 8 cups a day!
1 point for exercise: A minimum of Jillian Michaels 30DS (Usually I do a 60 minute walk but if I don't do that I have to do the 30DS!!) If I do a 12 hour shift I count that as exercise..a LOT of running around. It's def. a workout.

March 3: 4 :D ahh did both the 30DS and a long walk..stayed within my calories -1300- (buttt I didn't eat the healthiest food.)
March 4: 2. went out for dinner with my friends, got dessert..long day today..not alot of sleep = poor choices.
March 5: 4! :) long work day, ate within calories..still a great day though!!
