Amber you drank 408 ounces of water???!!!

I'm not worthy!! I'm not worthy!!


I'm waiting for my dh to get back so we can leave for crabbing.

Some the updates to this sound good. I wouldn't call that cheating if you stayed within your count or however you do your diet.

As far as the inches. I am not sure about it. That's alot of ground and alot of money. We're talking Arms, legs, calves, butt, chest, stomach, waist, neck. Some check the wrist. At .50 per inch or even .25 cents that's alot of money.
I'm not against it I just think If you are losing the inches the weight will eventually come off. Maybe if we have limit or drop the $ amount.

What's everyone elses thoughts?

I think dh just got home.

I have no idea about inches. I don't measure them, I do weight and % body fat, so I'll agree to what everyone else wants to do on that.

As for all the water... yea... I have to go like ALL THE TIME.

o... 17 glasses of water at 8oz each.. that's 136 oz right? Is it supposed to be higher than 8oz to count as a 'glass of water' Did I not do it correctly?

Either way... I still have to go all the time

Amber...I see where she's coming from. Originally the rules of the challenge showed $.50 for every 3-8 oz glasses of water...

We are never going to get out of here and go crabbing.

Amber I am sooo sorry but Hpnotq is right. Its 3- 8 ounces. That means 24 ounces per .50 cents. I drink bottled water so its easier for me to keep up with.

hpnotq the big 4 sounds good. How much? What does everyone else think?

yeah we are finally leaving.

3 pounds lost: 3 x $2= $6.00
2 miles walked: 2x.25= 50 cents
water drank: 29 bottles of 24oz each= $16.00 (no wonder I refill them)
excercise video: $4.75
7 miles run: $3.50
----------------------------
total: $30.25

I just got back! We caught about 30 crabs and we are having a crab boil tonight with the neighbors.

Angel Eyes!!! Truly I'm not worthy!!! I'm not worthy!

Well, the numbers to beat are over $30.00 bucks. So who else is there?

Angel I am going to give you a run for the money next week. I hope you are up for it. Maybe I should say I hope I'm up for it!!

I got to admit even though I obviously did not earn the Queen THIS week. This challenge pushed me to do more than I would have.

Haven't been keeping track for the piggy bank. I've had quite a week though.
I work in a plastics molding plant. so the temperatures get hot fast. This week 4 out of 6 of the a/c units quit on us and I was filling in for a lead person.

I ended up sweating off at least 3 lbs. Fillng in for the lead person means I'm on the go for an entire 8 hr shift minus my 2 twenty min breaks.i'm sure that even with any cheating I did this week I more than burned what I took in.

Today I'm on my 6th 20oz bottle of water and that is pretty comparable to every day this week.

I'm both happy and sad that the lead I was filling in for will be back on Monday. Happy because that means less work stress. Sad because it also means less excercise at work.

Good morning everyone!

Well, it looks like we have our Queen!! Anyone who was in the running would have posted there results by the end of yesterday so since no one else did Angel Eyes is our Queen for the Week!!

All hail Queen Angel Eyes!!!

Now its time to update the rules for the new week.

Hpnotq, On your Fab. 4 you had Bust and Chest. I am thinking you meant the same thing. So I have it as Waist, chest, hips. .25 cents each. Is that okay with everyone or should it be Higher or lower?

Below is the new update if we need to change anything say so quickly. Oh yeah How about water? Laura wanted to know if Tea would count or Crystal light as drinking water. Opinions?

Since Queen Angel Eyes is our Queen I think you should have the final say on all of this. Let us know what you think your magesty for the final approval.

Piggy Bank Challenge Rules:

.50 Cents for each 24ounces of water drank
.25 Cents for each 15 mins of stationary exercise. (like video, sit ups, equipment dancing)
.25 Cents for each mile walked
.50 Cents for each mile run
.25 Cents for inches (only chest, waist, Hips)
.25 cents for every 2 miles on a bike
$2.00 for every pound lost.

Friday to Friday

Whoever has the most money each Friday becomes Queen for the week. (Don't spend the money yet)
Whoever becomes Queen the rest of us must refer to her for the rest of the week as QUEEN whoever it is. Her magesty must be reconized all week by all of us. When we end our post we must always tell her magesty how great she is!!

At the end of the month the person who has earned the most money gets to spend her money and tell us what she spent it on.

Queen Angel Eyes I bow before you Great job last week!!! But I plan to dethrone you!

Potato I was talking about bust and chest as two different things. For chest I measure around my bra line and for bust I mean around the cup line (it's something we did in this step class I took at school). We can just do the three...that's fine

Oh and Amber...that crown is mine!
