Don't forget to create your weekly weigh-in post (if you haven't already done so) and then post today's starting weight and then post your weekly points post, too.

Good luck, everyone!

If your body functions best on six hours and that is your personal target goal, then I would say go ahead and use it. You know your body best, listen to what it tells you.

The eight hours is the mid-range of what most people need, so that is what is recommended in general. I have read studies that say some people need as little as 5 hours a night.

Good luck!

Got one question - my sleep goal is 6 hours a night. I know everybody says 8, but I can't do it, my body wakes up after six with out an alarm or anything. If I get 8 in, I feel like a slug the rest of the day, no energy whats so ever.

Does that meet my personal goal or do I play by the 8 hour rule?

Now I have taken control...

Sign up here if you want to join the January challenge.

In January, the weekly weigh-ins will be on FRIDAYS (January 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th).


WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?


This is a Contest Challenge meaning people will be competing to meet the weekly challenges. For this challenge, I will be posting the results of how each player did and declare a winning player every week.

The contest consists of Weekly Accountability. Each week, there will be a winning weekly points player, a most exercise minutes player, the most weight lost player and the most days exercised player.

Here are some of the basics:

1. We will be allotting 5 points for every 10 minutes of exercise you do.

2. Everyday you meet your personal goal, you will receive 10 points for it.

3. Weekly weigh-ins (on Fridays) - if you are uncomfortable posting your weight for everyone to see, you will have the option of just posting how many pounds you gained or lost for the week.


PART ONE: WEEKLY ACCOUNTABILITY

As many days as you can in a week, you will give yourself points for each category that you meet the weekly goal in these SIX areas:

1. Calorie Range-within your recommended range (not UNDER or OVER) - 10 points

2. Water (minimum 8 glasses per day, 64 ounces - all non-caffeinated beverages count like herbal tea and milk) - 10 points

3. Veggies & Fruits (minimum of 5 servings total per day - a serving is one medium piece of fruit or veg or half a cup of either except lettuce, which is one cup or half a cup of juice) - 10 points

4. Exercise - 10 or more minutes of exercise weekly, give yourself 5 points for every 10 minutes of exercise - exercise can be weights, cardio, Pilates, yoga, etc. (If you do 15 minutes of exercise, you will only get 5 points because we round down)

5. Personal Goal – 10 points everyday that you meet this goal.


BONUS POINTS:

Give yourself an extra 50 POINTS if you post at least 5 days in a week!

The weeks for points will run from Friday to Thursday.

In order for your weekly points to be included toward your total, please have your weekly counts posted by the start of the next week’s challenge, e.g. Fridays in the January Challenge.

Make your post of weekly points on the “Weekly Points” thread of the challenge.


****************************************
************
CREATE ONE POST AND EDIT IT DAILY.

Here is the format:

** PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO POST DAILY! **

“HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?”

To be placed in this challenge, just reply to this thread saying that you want to be in the challenge.

I will update the line-ups weekly until the challenge begins and then weekly thereafter.

“WHEN DO I NEED TO JOIN BY?”

You can join anytime before or during the month of January. We welcome people anytime.

“WHAT IF I CAN’T POST DAILY?” or “WHAT IF I AM AWAY?”

If you cannot post daily, you can still participate. Post your daily points, as you are able to. Let me know if you will be away.

Ideally, it’s all about the weekly posts. As mentioned above, in order for your points to be counted towards your total they need to be in by end of the week. And let’s face it if you are posting daily, you are more likely to be successful in achieving your goals (and you'll earn bonus points!)

If you are going to be out of town or on vacation, etc., you can post your points and weight when you get back. Send me a Sparkmail or create a post if you know you are going to be absent for more than one week.

“WHY/HOW IS SOMEONE DROPPED FROM THE CHALLENGE?”

By Request: Occasionally circumstances arise that requires someone to need to be eliminated.

“THIS SOUNDS HARD!”

Ah, yes, well remember, this IS a *challenge* and that means it will require commitment on every member’s part to hold yourself accountable for your daily posts and weekly weigh-ins. It may seem simple enough, but the challenge part comes in by keeping it up EVERY DAY!

Please try to stay in the challenge for the duration of the 4 weeks. If you need to drop out, please have the courtesy of letting me know. If you have a vacation or some other reason why you may be away for a period of time that would prevent you from weekly posts, please let me know - I try to be very accommodating and would like to see everyone who wants to participate do well!

YOU have to take on the challenge and make the commitment for yourself!

Having said that,

LET’S SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER as we challenge ourselves to healthy living! Ask questions, create new topics, and post often! We are all doing this together!! Check out the chat threads.

Everyone in this challenge has an open invitation to Sparkmail me. I may not be able to reply to you right away but I will do my best to do so.

YOU are challenged to:

-Post that you want to join on this thread by the start date of the challenge (January 1st) or anytime during the month.

-Post your start weight or the number "0" on the first day of the challenge in your January Challenge Weigh-in thread ON THE START DAY (not before) of the challenge and then just EDIT your original post each week to update your weight.

-Post on the “Weekly Points” thread as often as possible.

-Support and encourage your fellow players!

-Commit to remaining in the challenge for the duration of the 4 weeks

OK! I think I have covered all the basics! Now, let’s be challenged and have fun too!
