Default Pointer Sista's Challenge: Week four

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 , 1 point for eating clean , 1 point for your workout , and 1 point for doing what ever you forget or avoid. ie: taking your vitamins, or tracking all your food intake ...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...

I've had a horrible week and need to get back on track. Even though I was sick I feel like I could have tried. So....for this week:
  • Vitamin
  • Water
  • Exercise
  • No food after 9:00

Anyone else ready for this week??

I'm back to counting calories for a week to see how that goes.

1) keep daily calories within a 1700 - 1800 range.
2) exercise every day.
3) have some protein with each meal
4) journal my food plan

I've been using Fitday, and like how you can see the nutrient levels, etc.

I didn't do well either. I actually don't even know what to do. I think I will take this week off from the challenge and just TRY to exercise every day.

Good luck to you all. Jane I may re-visit Fitday.

Terribly tired today, but did my 1 mile WATP any way hoping it would give me energy. Will have to do it 3 days a wk every other day because of knee and hip. Bike will have other days. Made the 4 for today.

4/4

Trish

In my predictable Monday way, I got 4 for yesterday.

Sue - I totally understand. Pop back in if you change your mind.

Trish - sometimes my knee hurts, too, after doing the WATP video. I'm wondering if it is giving me more trouble than help? I think I'm going to stick with regular walking. I need to get some strength exercises in, though, and not sure how.

Hmm.....

I got 3 yesterday. This not eating after 9:00 is difficult since I get home from work about 7:45 and have to make dinner!

Shall see how I do today!

3/28

I got my 4 again today. Had to do a lot of running around today... walked a lot for exercise and helped DH push small tractor out of ditch which added up to exercise.

Jane - I think the walking and the bike is much easier on both my hip and knee, but in the past when I did the WATP the hip eventually quit hurting. I didn't have the knee problems at the time so don't know how it will affect it.

Marti - Maybe you should rethink the 9 o'clock thing. Remember you are exercising too.

8/8

Hugs,
Trish

Got 4 again today, but no energy. I wonder when it kicks in?

I managed to get 4 on Tues. and 3 today.

So I've got 10/28.

Not too bad.


Trish--I think you're right about the eating after 9:00....reason why I only got three today!

Jane--How are you doing?

Sue--How about you?


Who knew a simple challenge could be so......challenging?

I sure thought I posted here yesterday! I got 4 for Tuesday, but only 3 for yesterday. I went over calories. So that's 11/12 so far.

I've been trying to increase my walking outside, now that the rain is over.

Trish - are you getting enough protein? That could make a difference in how you feel.

Marti - nighttime eating is my worst, too! I can do just peachy all day long, then lost it at night. Even when I save points/calories for night, I want to go over.

Got only 3 today.

Jane - I tried some extra protein today and I actually think it helped. Are you using your weekly and/or activity points?

15/16

I got 3 for yesterday. 14/16. EEP! Why can't I do better controlling the food?!? Oink, oink!

Trish - I always eat my extra 35 flex points, and build them into my daily allowance. The way I see it is, I still lose well even when I eat them, and WW built them into the plan, so I should have them. Another thing is, the more points I can eat and lose, the more points I can have when I reach maintenance. This week, though, I've been counting calories. Not sure why, lol. Activity points? I don't count them, because my activity isn't strenuous or anything too great. If I worked out at a gym, or something like that, I'd reconsider.

Marti - how're you doing?

Well, I'm only counting 2 pts for Friday. Did a lot of walking, but I don't know how bad I did on points. Pigged out and didn't even count them. Had food tantrum I guess. May have use up my WP in about 10 minutes fit and didn't drink enough water I'm sure. Going to do the SBD/WW Flex Combo again so I eat the right things and eat enough protein and get my energy back. Start that Saturday. My weight has been up a few lbs for a few days and I just can't let it keep going up. I will do a weekly WI Monday when our week is up and see how "it" turns out.

17/20
