Arrow John Stone's May 2012 "100 Challenge" (Completed)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE CHALLENGE HAS BEGUN. NO MORE ENTRIES ALLOWED FOR THIS MONTH'S CHALLENGE!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Until the challenge begins, please DO NOT make any posts in this thread except your Official Entry post (a single placeholder post is OK). Once the challenge starts, you may post all you like.

This premise of this challenge is pretty simple: Each participant starts the month with 100 points. A point is deducted each time a workout is missed, a meal is missed, an unscheduled "cheat" meal or snack is consumed or a daily update to your official challenge post is missed. The goal, of course, is to finish the month with 100 points!

Here are the rules:

1) The challenge begins on MAY 1, 2012. You must have your starting post up by 9:00 AM (EDT) on MAY 1, 2012--NO EXCEPTIONS!
2) It doesn't matter if you are cutting, bulking or maintaining. The common goal here is 100% consistency.
3) Each person participating in the challenge should start a post in this thread by the cut-off time. Your Official Challenge post must be updated each and every day. The updates won't take long (examples below). If you miss an update, you must deduct a point. Please note that you should edit your existing Official Challenge post--don't start a new post every day.
4) Miss a workout for any reason, deduct a point.
5) Miss a meal for any reason, deduct a point.
6) Eat an unscheduled "cheat" meal or snack, deduct a point.

Feel free to post before/after pictures if you like (optional).

Of course this challenge is based on the honor system. You can cheat, but that would be pointless.

Here's an example Official Challenge post (feel free to copy and paste, substituting your own information):

Yes, I will play tag for another month. May is a wild and beautiful month at least on my agenda.

Goal: This might indeed be my month of salvation. It looks like I will be here there and everywhere,thankfully not at the same time so my major goal will be training 5 days per week minimum & Maximizing my nutritional intake while traveling. I can only pray that it all comes together.

May2: 98% I'm still chasing myself, I might freak myself out if I ever catch myself.
May3: 97% The psychology of being me is becoming more complicated by the day.
May4: 96% I am tapering with the success equation again
May5: 95% Did I mention this was one of those dodging traffic playing with cars type weeks??
May6: 94% No Comment!
May13: 87% Okay, when duty calls I have to go put I will subtract a point for each day I couldn't sign in ...ouch! Other than that I am blessed!
May 14: 87% Okay I am back on my home turf training and my butt was slaughtered today. Literally. It was Monday time to rock the glutes and massacre the legs all I can say is mission complete.
Continue to give it your best everyone and have a fantastic week.
May 15: 87% In the battle of me versus me I might just be winning LOL...it's only tuesday and already my butt has been kicked to the curb. I am feeling the intensity but I am falling in love with it, in a wicked sort of wild way.
May 16: 86% addicted to beautiful pressure
May 17: 85% This is like really crazy, what a wild month.

May 24: 82% Yes Indeed, I survived and held it all together.
May 31: 74% Okay I missed a lot of logging in this month, but yet slowly I progress. I will not be deterred. By the grace of G-d I will reach my goal. Each month thus far has given me viable feedback it will only be a matter of time until....

May 1 Tuesday-Got some rest. Ate two cookies, but for the amount I'm paying in rent I felt obligated to take them from the office when I was in there. Strolled with the dog. Went swimming with the kid. A few laps. Mostly playing with the football. Other than 2 cookies ate nutritious food. Not a heavy duty workout, but not pure couch potato either.


Weeks vary depending on which city I'm in (and don't worry, the dog will be walked by someone else if it's not me), but here's what I'm shooting for:

Monday: Walk dog morning, upper body, walk dog evening
Tuesday: Walk dog morning, yoga, walk dog evening
Wednesday: Switch cities, exercise bike
Thursday: Switch cities, walk dog morning or evening, upper body
Friday: walk dog morning, switch cities
Saturday: Volunteer Challenger Baseball, sleep
Sunday: Switch cities, exercise bike, walk dog evening
