OK, ladies! It's time to figure it all out, and make a comittment! This is only three weeks, but it should get us past the candy EVERYWHERE time. Hmmm. maybe we sould make it 4 weeks so we get passed when the candy is on sale :lol:

The challenge officially kicks off on October 8th, THIS SATURDAY! If you want to start earlier (like NOW) just add earlier days to the score sheet :)

So it's time to sit down, and plan everything out. You need to lay out the details for youself of the following:

Challenge Parameters
Goal
Nutrition
Exercise
Any additional rules
Tracking

The challenge ends on Halloween. So, anything you plan is JUST for the month of October. Make your goals reasonable, and your plan achievable - but worthy of Challenge status. Then post your plan here, along with starting stats (and possibly a starting photo) for all of us to see. Make your commitment!

Post your plan, then copy the individual score sheet into your post. Go in each day and edit your post to update you score. Simple?

This is the 1st time I've used the forum - I'm up for a challenge. Is weight lifting 'required' for the exercise?

Mel

No, but you are in the "Ladies Who Lift Forum" ;) We're happy to have you join us, whatever your exercise of choice :)

Looks like most of us who started early had a good first week :bravo: 2F, I love your weekend comment! But don't you feel great on Monday morning knowing that you haven't erased a week's worth of work?

If You started a week early, don't forget to add an extra week to the bottom of your score sheet and total your Week 1 points :) Please note that I changed the scoring for the Weekly points at the bottom. Give yourself the total points you earned during the week. After thinking about it, I didn't like the idea that not meeting a goal on one day out of the entire week would result in a zero for the whole week :dizzy: Especially since we always preach "just get back on track!"

I am pledging to get 10 more points this challenge! :D I've been totally wonky on the eating front for the past 2 days. Not any more! I resisted the huge heavy doughnuts in Tesco today and I didn't buy any more junk food! :hyper: (It's a start!)

If I get 10 more points on this challenge, I am going to treat myself with something... I can't think what but I'll think of something!
