Join the Fitness Challenge 2010

If you would like to get off that holiday weight, please join this fitness challenge! It will be joined by people just like you -- ordinary people who want to shed a few pounds. If you're interested in joining, just post a comment with your e-mail (feel free to use at instead of @) and I'll add you to the list of people who can post comments.

Here are the rules: There are 10 possible points per day:
  • 1 point for keeping a food journal
  • 1 point for drinking 8+ cups of water
  • 1 point for not eating any treats (use your own judgment on what is a treat)
  • 1 point for not eating after 8 p.m.
  • 1 point for exercising 30+ minutes
  • 1 point for taking a multi-vitamin and/or calcium
  • 1 point for eating 4+ servings of fruit/veggies
  • 1 point for getting 6.5+ hours of sleep (adjust as necessary for babies :)
  • 1 point for no soda pop
  • 1 point for doing something that reduces your stress level in some way -- reading, bubble bath, surfing the net, etc.
Also, there will be 1 bonus point every week that you lose weight (1 point for losing weight, not 1 point per pound); and there will be 1 bonus point every week that you post on the blog how you did. Five bonus points will be available for sending your money ($15) during the first two weeks of the challenge. (If you don't send your money by the end of week 4, you are no longer eligible for the pot at the end, so get your $$ in soon!)

Winner takes the ENTIRE pot. Second-place and third-place winners will get the same prizes as were listed for our last challenge. (Click here to see prizes for second and third.)

This challenge begins Jan. 4, 2010 -- just in time to get off those holiday pounds and fulfill new year's goals! It will go for 12 weeks and end on Mar. 29, 2010. Round up your friends and let's make this challenge bigger and better than ever!
