January 2007 Challenge - Sign up!
- WorkingIt on 16-Dec-06 09:19 AM
would like to propose a challenge for the month of January. But one that is geared towards everyone trying to accomplish the same thing. Learning healthy habits (or re-learning) from the ground up. Getting back to basics or for the new folks, starting with the basics.

My suggestion is this:

Goals for January:

Regular points(1 point each)

Exercise for at least 10 minutes

Stay 100 calories within daily total

Drink at least 6 glasses (8 oz) of water

Eat at least 3 servings of fruits or veggies

Bonus points (2 points each)

Exercising for greater than 10 minutes

Stay within calorie limits, not going over

Drink more than 6 glasses of water

Eating more than 3 servings of fruits or veggies

So, if you drink 20 glasses of water, you would give yourself 2 points for that, etc.

If you'd like to participate, please sign up here so I can keep track of everyone who is participating so I can read your diaries for the points.

I'm looking forward to meeting my daily goals with everyone here!

Oh, sounds like a great idea! Count me in!

I will never be able to drink 6 glasses of water a day, though, so I guess I'll just have to give those points a miss, hehe!

WorkingIt on 16-Dec-06 08:43 PM

sad on 26-Dec-06 08:38 PM
I'm in


hollybelle on 27-Dec-06 08:11 AM
OK-I'm going to do this! I previously said I was already counting everything I could find it in me to count, but after reviewing the set-up, I like what I see - no weight loss goal - just lifestyle benchmarks. Good idea.

WorkingIt on 27-Dec-06 07:02 PM
Welcome GreenGirl, Sad and Holly!

Starveil7 on 28-Dec-06 02:45 AM
I'm in unless I have to be gone spontanously for work :)

Soon2BThin on 28-Dec-06 04:06 PM
Wow, looks like everyone is in! So I am too! Soonie loves a challenge. I'll put my goals in my next entry, I hope. Thanks, WorkingIt!

WorkingIt on 30-Dec-06 04:14 PM
Welcome Starveil and Soonie!!

toady on 31-Dec-06 06:43 AM
I would like to be included in this also!

Moody on 31-Dec-06 07:46 AM
I know I told you in your journal a couple weeks that I was going to join you in the challenge but didn't know if I was supposed to sign up here too..so here I am, signing on the dotted line!! I'm in!!

sam1109 on 01-Jan-07 08:56 AM
Alright, nothing to lose, I am in!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01-Jan-07 09:09 AM
Ready, Set, Go!!!!! Today is day 1!

WorkingIt on 01-Jan-07 10:24 AM
Today is day one!!! Good luck everyone!! Make sure and post your daily points in your diary entries so I can keep track!

stringbean on 01-Jan-07 12:52 PM
Sounds good- count me in! Love that it's a "re-learning" healthy habits thing instead of a challenge that jumps right into huge changes. I'll do my best! Just to clarify- you either get the regular points, or the bonus points, right? Not both- and doing an hour of exercise won't get you extra bonus points, right?

GoGirl on 01-Jan-07 02:08 PM
well i WOULD sign up.. but ill never remember the stuff to get points for. so i shall wish you all good luck in the challenge but shall just do my own thing for a while. i shall read the progress reports though!

mattscat3295 on 01-Jan-07 04:57 PM
I would love to sign up this sounds like sooooo much fun, I am definately in!!!!!

ginger72 on 01-Jan-07 06:44 PM
Ginger72 on board!!! As someone who has just joined...I would like to participate...could help me get off on the right foot.

WorkingIt on 01-Jan-07 07:30 PM
Welcome String, Mattscat and Ginger! Ginger..I tried to find your name on the list but I can't locate your diary...you can either post your diary public with your points or post them to me on my diary...don't want to miss them!

GoGirl on 04-Jan-07 10:27 AM
Right - having checked it out it doesn apper to be too tricky for me! just one thing - the max points you can get in a day is 8 - right? so if i drink lots of water i dont get 1 point PLUS 2 do i .. i get just 2? sorry to be such a numpty!!

destiny on 04-Jan-07 01:00 PM
I'm in, no time like the present.

WorkingIt on 04-Jan-07 06:00 PM
Welcome to the challenge Destiny! Make sure you record your points on your daily entries so I can pick them up and record them for you! Thanks and good luck!

WorkingIt on 04-Jan-07 06:00 PM
Hy GoGirl! Yes the max is 8 and no you can't combine points! Let me know if you are joining and please post your daily points in your journal..thanks and good luck!

WorkingIt2 on 11-Jan-07 11:33 AM
Welcome Crategirl!!! Never too late...just make sure to post your points with the date on your journal entry! I'll be looking for 'em!
