Support Groups - Pointer Sistas Challenge: Week Seven

06-27-2006, 04:25 AM
A great points-counting challenge idea that came from Angie. So far it's been a hit and so we'll continue on each week, Mondays being the starting point.

Here is what it's all about:

The rules are simple... you get to earn 4 points per day, that is a total of 28 points per week. If you get 25 points or more, give yourself a reward. It doesn't have to be big, a new lipstick, pocket book, a pedicure, or time for you, just you.

You can earn 1 point for drinking all your water:cheers: , 1 point for eating clean:hungry: , 1 point for your workout:lifter: , and 1 point for doing what ever you forget or avoid. ie: taking your vitamins, or tracking all your food intake:write: ...this is something you can decide.

At the end of the week tally up your points. Make this fun, and remember you do deserve a reward... :encore:

This week seems out of control but I did manage to get 3pts in today. Didn't exercise, I don't think the heat would allow me too. ('s an excuse!)

Off to a good start.'d you do last week? Still game for this week??

Anyone else?

Marti - I'm back in, with a revison. Instead of staying POP, how about if I stay with healthy eating? Then, my other 3, which are exercise of some sort everyday except Sunday, a vitamin daily, and drinking the water.

Julie - YGG!!! :cp:

Angie - how about if you revise yours to something more do-able? The group just isn't the same w/o you.

So what are you gals rewarding yourselves with if/when you make it? Not sure what I'll be doing about that, yet. I know I was pretty proud of myself when I earned the book and the patio stuff. Two outta six is pathetic, but at least I'm trying!

Don't ask me why, but ever since I said I'd do this, I feel stressed about it. I've done very well with the food, etc. so I don't know why I'm affected like that. My natural inclination is to avoid challenges, so I that ought to tell me something, and I did lose 85 pounds without pressure, so I know I can do it.

Anyway, I'm out..... good luck to the rest of you, though. :)
