I can't even track my food on a normal day.
I have no idea if I stayed in my calorie range - but I probably did.
I did my water, as long as you don't subtract any because of coffee.
I walked Friday and will walk today. I did my ten minutes in the morning (except today because I don't do them on Sunday) I will probably do some Pilates later. I don't log any exercise other then the ten in the morning.
I will huddle today.

I like three day challenges.

With special Christmas meals and activities and with lack of time to exercise, this weekend will likely be a challenge for most of us. Here's another challenge for the weekend!

Choose one or more of these options for this Friday through Sunday challenge:

1. Track all of your food for the three days.

2. Post on this thread if you were able to stay in your calorie range during the weekend.

3. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day.

4. Exercise at least two out of the three days then post on this thread what you did for your exercise.

5. Huddle on this team each of the three days.

Are you "in" for this challenge? Which mini challenges do you choose to do?
