Default Doing our own thing~October 3 point challenge

You girls know the rules. You get 1 point for your food, 1 point for your water and 1 point for your exercise. That is a total of 3 points daily that you can accumulate.

The great thing is, this is a SELF-DIRECTED challenge. Meaning, you pick your own guidelines. This is an example of a GOOD plan:

Food - A specific calorie range, or WW point range, or even something a little more simple...just make it real...
Water - Eight 8oz glasses a day
Exercise - 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week

This is an example of a plan that will get you a GIANT WEDGIE:

Food - Under 4000 calories for the day
Water - One with a splash of vodka
Exercise - Reaching for the remote or walking to the fridge.

So...I will start. And because we all know our own bodies, these guidelines will be all over the chart for each of us!

Food - 1350 - 1600 calories a day or 24-29 points (yes I am doing WW, but I still like to be a little more specific than that.) I count points AND calories.

Water - You guys KNOW that I think water is the Debil. But I will TRY TRY TRY to drink 40 oz a day. That is 5 eight oz glasses. That is as good as it will get girls. I hate that crap. And as you may have seen from our last 3 point challenge...I lost that water point MANY MANY days. LOL, so I will try harder this time.

Exercise - I am planning on doing 30 minutes of cardio 3 nights a week and weights 3 nights a week and one free day. So, Sunday is my free day, and I would feel bad about taking an exercise point on my free day without doing something...I will do some yoga on Sunday. That would be nice...

Ok, there is my plan. C'mon everyone! I know that there will be some exceptions, like Jello and Dyan who have things happening this month. So, we will be keeping track of points, etc...but it really wouldn't be fair to those of our group who aren't able to fully participate for all 31 days to have any type of prize, per say....so we are doing this just to kick each other's butts into high gear. Big pump before Thanksgiving and Christmas!

What the heck, I'm in.

Water - 48-64oz a day.
Food - In my WW range.
Exercise - Any structured or a 30 min walk.

WW pts is the easiest way for me to count but I do reserve the right to bank. A trip to the gym counts as exercise whether it's weights or cardio, but I need another "informal" option, hence the 30 minute walk. Water - 48 is acceptable for me for the colder months because there's also herbal tea, which I don't count as "water" but does boost my fluid intake.

Best wishes to everyone for a great challenge!

Don't write me off just yet there Tiffany girlie!!

I'm in as long as I'm physically (and mentally ) able.

Food: 1600 - 1700 calories a day.
Water: At least 64 ounces a day.
Exercise: Gym 2-3 times a week plus home treadmill or exercise videos (gotta love that Richard Simmons) on other days.

Yes, I can do this!

Hey What About an Extra Point for Doing Something That Makes Us Feel Good Each Day?

It seems to me and I am included here that we are all working our butts off trying to do this challenge yet once we put down the food, have you noticed, that a lot of us are feeling the feelings, and there seems to be self-esteem issues croping up like weeds all over the place.

Is any one game for an extra point a day for not beating ourselves up and feeling totally poopoo about our bodies each day? Here we all are doing something solid and positive and I have been reading the posts, mine included, and we are saying things about our bodies, that we would slam someone else across, the room, if they said it within hearing distance...at least I would. I am too damn old to be made fun of or ridiculed by other so I'm also not allowed to do it too.

This should be the hardest point to attain right on a daily basis now, but we owe it to ourselves to try...and I sure would like my 3FC buds to go along with this so we can support each other.
