Sounds good to me.

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren’t more people happy?

A new challenge, but simpler - maybe one or two things to keep track of or focus on.

I'd be willing to do something else. This sounded like so much fun but I just didn't get a chance to get into it.

What kind of switch were you thinking of?

Hi LOVINGWIFE! Glad you saw this; I know you like challenges.

I have been terrible keeping up with this challenge, though. I liked the idea of it, but it was tricky to keep remembering what I was watching for.

Would anyone be against me switching it out for an easier one that is easier to keep track of?

All of you who attempted this one are emoticon

Especially Sara, who absolutely kicked bottom on this challenge!

I really like it but we don't watch football. My husbands does sometimes (when Oklahoma plays) but he likes mma

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

It's fall, and that means football to many of us (or at least to our spouses, lol).

I was thinking of a football based challenge.

It's a plus/minus challenge, and basically you earn points for some things, and lose points for other things, but with a football theme.

Earn first downs (10 pts each)
• Do 15 minutes of cardio
• Do stretches after strength training
• Strength train your arms
• Strength train your back
• Strength train your core
• Strength train your legs
• Drink between 8-10 glasses of water
• Eat 3 or more servings of fruit and vegetables
• Eat 3 or more servings of whole grains
• Eat no candy or junk food (chips, soda, unhealthy fast food) for the day
• Eat/drink no caffeine (including chocolate)
• Measure all your food using scales or measuring cups etc
* Got 7-8 hours of sleep

Tackled (-10 pts each)
• Eat over/under your fat range
• Eat over/under your protein range
• Eat over/under your sodium range
• Eat over/under your carb range

Fouls (-10 pts each)
• You said something negative about yourself
• You skipped breakfast or ate something unhealthy for breakfast
• You took the elevator when you could have taken the stairs
• You ate two donuts (or whatever is your weakness) when you could have had just one (or none!!)
• You didn't drink enough water
• You didn't get 7- 8 hours of sleep
• You let a grumpy mood get the best of you instead of talking yourself out of it
• You made an excuse to yourself to skip a workout

Touchdown! (150 points)
• Eat within your calorie range every day this week

Who wants to join me?

The challenge starts tomorrow, and runs until American Thanksgiving.
Married Life Team member with the most points when the challenge ends, gets a team goodie prize!

Sample post may look like this:

Monday:
did cardio - 10 points
strength trained arms and core - 20 points
ate no junk today - 10 points
got 7.5 hours sleep - 10 points
measured all my food today - 10 points

only got 6 glasses water - minus 10 points
had 4 cookies instead of having only 2 or none - minus 10 points

Monday's total - 40 points

Tuesday:
cardio but no strength - 10 points
slept 8 hours - 10 points
got in my water - 10 points

but - said negative things about myself in my head - minus 10 points

Tuesday's total - 20 points

etc.
