Default November Points Challenge

This seemed to work well for October so let's give it another try shall we? Here's how the Points Challenge (designed by Sandi of the 100 lb. Club) works: Every day, starting Nov 1 and going until Nov 30, you have the chance to earn 4 points doing the things we all know help with weight loss: food, exercise, and water. You get 2 points for following your own personal plan for food, 1 point for getting in your planned exercise, and 1 point for drinking the amount of water you've set as your goal. That means that a total of 120 points are possible for the month of November.

Just post your points for each day as you go along, you can add to a previous post by editing or just post a new reply. I'll keep a log of everyone's points (and the days that they've updated) at the top.

Good luck!

Default November Challenge

I would like to join this challenge. I am doing pretty well with my exercising and fair with diet, but I have taken less care with my water intake of late. I was just noticing I have not had anywhere 8 glasses today, for instance.
Goof idea this challenge.

I noticed i haven't been doing a good job updating this or doing well with this point challenge. I'm too busy this month in order to give my full effort towards this. Maybe next month.

I wish all you girls good luck!
