The Challenge

I had already implemented some of these daily habits...and wasn't going to sign up for the actual "challenge"....but the competitive side of me won! And I did sign up....

It's something that I felt that I needed...I want to feel good about myself again...and take the time to do these things for myself each day...

Daily Habits
Each item is worth 1 point, with a possible 10 points per day
1 7 hours of sleep
2 48 oz. water
3 45 minutes of exercise (not necessarily consecutive)
4 2 servings of veggies, 2 servings of fruit
5 No soda, beer, wine, unhealthy snacks, or bad fast food [anything FRIED]
6 No sweets [desserts, pastries and sugary snacks & cereals] * sugar-free alternatives are ok
7 No eating after dinner/8pm
8 15 minutes of scripture reading (or other spiritual text if you don't do scripture)
9 One journal entry (any length)
10 Express sincere appreciation or praise to your spouse (if single, to another person)
Note: You have one free point per category per week, of your choice, or you can choose a day where all 10 points will be given.
You are excused from the sweet rule on YOUR BIRTHDAY.
You are allowed three sick days where you are excused from exercising and eating veg/fruit/water [if you can’t eat/drink] This is ONLY to be used if you are indeed sick.
All scoring is "on your honor." Please update the shared Google spreadsheet each day, or week with your points. We will send you this after you have paid $20 on a Paypal account.
There are two categories of winners:
1. The three resolutionaries with the most points will equally divide 80% of the cash in the Challenge Fund. For example, if there is $500 in the kitty, $400 will be allocated amongst the three players with the most points.
2. All participants with more than 505 points, or 60% of the available points. Because the Resolutionary Challenge is partly about getting the most points, but mostly about process, any person who gets an average of 6 points or better per day, will have won, and will be eligible for a random giveaway which will be funded by the remaining 20% in the Challenge Fund.
