I had a cheat meal last night so I went over my calories but thats okay because I have done very well on calories the past week. The crunches have definitly been an easy way to earn 25 points for me. I think Im going to add a personal challenge of no soda for 10 points. Thats a weakness for me.

So glad to hear everyone seems to be doing well with the challenge and likes it. You will find as we go on week to week we start to know each other better, are there through struggles and when you disappear you are missed. emoticon

So now on to my Wednesday - surprise surprise it looked a lot like my Monday and Tuesday. LOL! I thought putting in the bonus of the crunches was going to help me up my points each day since I knew there was no chance of exercise till today - yeah that didn't happen. By the time I get home at night I'm so tired the idea of getting down on the floor to do anything but pass out sounds like a nightmare. Now I think I'm getting a cold which makes it even worse. But tonight is a free night and I'm going to the gym come hell or high water.

To save myself some typing... LOL!

So today, I made me goals. I walked the track again during my boys practice for 35 minutes, just made it under my calories, slept 7 hours last night and I had my 8 cups of water. So that is 80pts today. What I like about the challenge is that I am excited to post my progress every night which keeps me on track with the challenge and my goals.

Tuesday looked a lot like Monday for me. Although my intention was to get to the gym before my day because I had a later appointment but as the alarm went off at 5 and I said to myself - hmmm get up at normal time and go to the gym OR get an extra hour and half of sleep. I'm going with sleep. LOL! So I went from one appointment, to work, to my second job which then overlapped into teaching my 2nd to last CCD class of the year. Than to top it off I finallly got home and think I'm getting sick. Hoping it's just allergies, but my throat is kind of scratchy. BLAH...

I made 80pts today. Stayed on track with my calories, drank my 8+ cups of water. I love water! I got 8 hours of sleep last night and walked the track for 35 minutes. This challenge is awesome because it is keeping me on track.

Steph - that is exactly how it works. Just keep racking up the points.

SLPCowGal - I'm with you on coming up with none food and/or things that don't cost money rewards - IT'S HARD. I tend to still do the food things - allow myself a treat. Like a small Rita's Ice or something like that. I have set goals for myself long term that the rewards are going to cost money, but I'm also putting money in a jar as if I was paying say weight watchers and that becomes my reward spending money. But the reward can be as simple as allowing yourself an hour to yourself to read a book, catch up on some TV, take a nap, or whatever. "Me time" is something I don't see all that often so when I get it it's a huge reward. Not sure if you like to read, but maybe instead of buying a new book you can always go to the library and borrow one. Going to get a manicure can depending on where you go be inexpensive sometimes as low as $10 (before tip). Another good one if you have a tub is to always take a bath. Just some options. Hope I was a little bit of a help.

Monday was slow for me, but still a good day. I had work one of my part time jobs last night so there was no time for the gym. I actually had plans to hit the gym this morning before a meeting at 8:30 and take advantage of a later day start, but yeah I weight out spin class at 5:30 or an extra hour and half of sleep. I went with sleep. Oh well! I'm still happy.

Stay in Calorie Range - 25 pts
Water 8+ glasses - 10 pts
Fruits/Veggies 5+ a day - 0 - I need to go shopping
Sleep 6+ hours a day - 10

Exercise (keep it simple) 0
Bonus: Do 50+ crunches each day - 0 - so much to do last night I completely forgot. Better luck today.

Monday - 45

45 pts. for Monday: Drank 8+ glasses of water, got 6+ hrs. of sleep, stayed w/in calorie range. That's all good, but disappointed that I didn't get my workout in. Today is off to a better start, though as 30 day shred level 2 is under my belt as well as 50+ additional crunches.
Have a great day, everyone!

I'll give myself 95 for today. I think there are about 50 crunches in the 30 Day Shred Workout.

These are great goals that I need to address; thanks BABS!

Wow, as I'm thinking about it, it almost seems crazy to me that I'm having trouble thinking of goals that don't involve food indulgences or spending $$$...not that there's anything wrong w/ either, but for me personally I'd like to find some alternatives to both. I realize rewards are personal and individual, but any suggestions to get me thinking outside the eating/spending box would be appreciated!

I was once told that anything without caffiene could be counted as water - BUT who drinks tea and coffee for anything other than caffiene. I drink A LOT of crystal light and tend to count that as water. Maybe switch to a decaf tea and that could count. Just a thought.

This sounds like a fun way to stay on track. I will keep you posted on my progress. The water is hard for me because I drink tea and coffee also.

I'm in! I've already started my morning with a 30-minute, 9 mile bike ride. First half was butt-kicking...getting ready for the PRT next month. 2nd half was an even steady pace. Less calories than the first, but I was weak in the legs after I was all done.

So far today I've gotten 2 svgs of veggies in. Got 30pts for exercise. 10pts for sleeping 7 hours. I'm working on my water and the day just started so no clue on that calorie range yet...but I'm working on it.

Ohh crunches....those are going to have to wait until I get off work. I am not getting on the floor in my office!!! Hahaha I work with 9 guys.

Will update totals later.

Thanks Babs for starting this challenge.

I'm not really sure how this works yet, but your goals are pretty much in line with the goals I have for myself already, so I will keep them the same. I am struggling with my weight fluctuating for no reason apparent to me, so I am trying to focus on the basics. Really want to work on tracking my food much more closely for the next few weeks to see where I may be slipping.

Track food/Stay in Calorie Range - 25 pts/day
Water 8+ glasses - 10 pts/day
Fruits/Veggies 5+ a day - 10 pts/day
Sleep 6+ hours a day - 10 pts/day
Take multivitamin & calcium supplement-5 pts each/day
Exercise (keep it simple) 1 pt for each minute you exercise.

Bonus: Do 50+ crunches each day - 25/day

Get back below 150 by week-end- 10pts


Reward Levels:

Gold - 600+ pts
Silver - 400
Bronze - 200

Sorry this is delayed. It was a rough weekend for me. But here I am. I think for the first one we are going to keep it simple. The idea is to set yourself a goal and try to get there. For each thing you accomplish a day you will get points and at the end of the week your points will total up to get you to a certain reward category. Since lately I'm all about rewards please pick what reward goes with which category, something that works for you. Good luck!

Stay in Calorie Range - 25 pts/day
Water 8+ glasses - 10 pts/day
Fruits/Veggies 5+ a day - 10 pts/day
Sleep 6+ hours a day - 10 pts/day

Exercise (keep it simple) 1 pt for each minute you exercise.

Bonus: Do 50+ crunches each day - 25/day

Gold - 600+ pts
Silver - 400
