FEBRUARY CHALLENGE!!! The start of the year always gives me a feeling that the past mistakes can just become the past and I get a brand new opportunity to get it right. But how do we get motivated? How do we keep going? We all could use a little help, so why not join this 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 January 1, 2013. 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 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????

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

Just posting this for Sandi. Thanks Sandi.

I've been doing pretty bad this month. I'm finding it really difficult to take on track with the mountains in college work I've to do. I think I'll continue this month as best as I can. From March 1st, begin watching my foods. And come April when the weather is that bit better, begin to beat the weight for the summer time.

How is everyone else doing?

I totally forgot about this one. With people editing their original posts rather than posting updates, it falls off the first page of threads and it falls out of my memory! lol!

I have been doing well on food, although with a couple of planned days off plan (I'm dong low carb, and these were still fairly low cal but not low carb so that is still off plan for me). Water is rarely an issue for me, except on really busy weekend days, I have to remember to bring water with me. I've been intermittent on activity - I hurt my back a little, nothing bad but enough to make me need to take it easy. But that seems to be mostly better now, so I'll get back to doing my WATP pretty soon.

I don't know that I can really remember enough specifics for all the days I missed though. I may have to just wait until next month and try again. It we all post brief updates from time to time like this, we can keep the thread more prominent and hopefully I won't forget again!

I have to go to my subscribed threads to find it. I don't forget about it, I just forget to update every day.

April Snow, I'm planning on doing this challenge for the rest of the year because I'm trying to improve my score.

If Sandi comes back and resumes posting it, that's fine with me. She's the originator as far as I know. If she doesn't get it going, I will do it again, unless one of you ladies beat me to it, and that's fine, too. We are in this together.
