SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE!! September! Really? Fall is on it's way. Now, I LOVE Fall, but that also means the holidays are right around the corner. Are you where you wanted to be in terms of weight loss at this time? It's not too late to get started and have some measurable success this year!! We still have 4 months to rock this year! 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 September 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.

this challenge is already working for me - I got home about an hour later than I expected tonight but still made myself do a Walk Away The Pounds program because I was NOT going to miss out getting my 4 points for today! lol!

go for it kyalpn! I think splitting things into these 3 categories is a really good approach. Even if you don't get all 3, that's still something to think "I didn't get 100% on plan but at least I got in my _____ and tomorrow, I'll get at least 2 out of the three!"

I'm finding it very motivating!

So...I am seriously horible at this! :o Especially at keeping track of the calories. I'm going to have to get a better system of reocord keeping...:dizzy: Any suggestions? Especially when dishes are already made by someone else?

April -- You are rockin it this month girly! Get on with your bad self!

kyalpn -- I know Nutrisystem has premade meals but I don't have any experience with the program. I just track calories and use MyFitnessPal but am also a huge fan of Weight Watchers. (Not sure that's what you're looking for though.)

I use the myplate section of livestrong. It's free & a lot of things are already in their system. We ate out at Outback Friday, when I got home, I was pleasantly surprised to see the whole meal I ate already in the myplate system. I just started typing it in & the nutritional information automatically loaded. :)

thanks Jami!

I was already doing really well on food so I used this challenge to motivate me to go 30/30 for exercise - and it's working!!

And, yay! This is the first day I know for sure that I met all three of my goals for the day!!
