Challenge Time!

A new month is starting soon and I have decided to start a challenge for myself and any one who wants to join in. I need motivation and I think it will help. Leave a comment if you want to join in on the challenge. It is going to be a 3 month challenge but with prices at the end of each month. The goal is going to be weight loss but with mini goals of exercise and eating healthy. And for each thing you do you get points and the person with the most points wins. What do you win? Someting fabulous picked out by me! So who is with me? Any questions?

This week is just going to be a warm up since August doesn't start until Friday. This week the challenge is to find a new vegetable and make something with it. Here is how the points will be distributed:

Daily Points

Drinking water - 1 point per glass with a maximum of 10
Exercise- 5 points per 30 minutes
Eating - 5 points for eating well or on plan (counting points for me)

Weekly Points
10 points for each time you do the weekly challenge

I will post my progress every day and you can post a comment with your progress. I will tally up each week. Come on and join me and get your friends involved too!


  1. I am excited to try this with you! I just hope I remember to keep track of everything! lol I will start tomorrow!

  2. Hey Melynda - this sounds great! I'll be happy to tag along if you'll have me! I'll do a post on my blog no later than tomorrow morning (working on another right now).

  3. I'm all for it! I can't excersize except for walking for the next 4 weeks, Guess i'll need to bust out the double stroller!

  4. My friend Pam alerted me to this challenge...I'm all over it!! Starting tomorrow morning. I count calories...the daily allowance set up by my nutrition website is 1590. Eating well for me will be not exceeding that number. I've been walking 20 mins a day on the treadmill but will raise it to 30 mins a day to meet the challenge! Thank you for the inspiration!

  5. I found out about this challenge through Pam's blog. I would love to participate!!

    Can't wait to participate with all of you. :)

  6. I am in Mely! I want to lose 10lbs...

    My biggest challenge is the chocolate jar at work and evening grazing.

    I've been pretty, um, lazy (I guess you could say)in my exercise and eating right lately...but expecially exercise. Even my blogging ( has been nonexistant.
