Default Halloween Challenge! Booo! This Means YOU!

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

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?

Looks like most of us who started early had a good first week 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 Especially since we always preach "just get back on track!"
