    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 August 1, 2010. You must have your starting post up by 9:00 AM (EDT) on August 1, 2010--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):

    oh man! first post on august 26th!

    got a new job and got off the track! came back home late and hungry. needed something quick to eat and choosed sweets and ate to much to do my workout afterwards. a lot of sweets and a lot of skipped workout. no good month so far

    since 7 days I´m back on my diet again and I´m working out too. Now I´m above 100 kg once more and aim to go below in the next two weeks
    :)

    Been a long time since I've done one of these (July 2008, anyone?). As far as I know, I'm completely free of trips and other obligations in August that would detrimentally affect my ability to do this, so count me in.

    GOAL: Cutting

    COMMENT: I want to reduce my bf% over the course of the month, preferably weight loss of 1 lb/week, too.

    WORKOUT SCHEDULE
    Mornings: Walk at ~4 mph for ~40 min (fasted LISS). OR 30-40 minutes of bicycling (again, fasted LISS). ≥5 days/week.
    Evenings: Weights MWF or 3x/week.

    MEAL SCHEDULE
    Five meals per day (of various sizes). One cheat meal per week is allowed; this is NOT counted in my meal planning, but it IS counted in my main calorie tracking to figure out at what calorie level I'm actually achieving my goals.

    CALORIC GOAL
    ~1700 kcal/day averaged over 1 week (EXCLUDING any cheat). Macros: ≤25% fat, ≤40% carbohydrates, and ≥35% protein.


    START STATS
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Body Fat: 18.6%
    Biceps: 12.375"
    Forearms: 9.75"
    Chest: 38.75"
    Waist: 35"
    Hips: 39.875"
    Thighs: 21.75"
    Calves: 15.75" Left, 16.125" Right (they're pretty asymmetric)

    END STATS
    Weight: xxxx lbs
    Body Fat: xxxx%
    Biceps: xxxx"
    Forearms: xxxx"
    Chest: xxxx"
    Waist: xxxx"
    Hips: xxxx"
    Thighs: xxxx"
    Calves: xxxx"


    DAILY LOG

    August 1 (100 pts): Didn't walk today (very sore from day before), but ate fine and even went to bed on time.
    August 2 (100 pts): Walked, weights, ate.
    August 3 (99 pts): I was delaying breakfast a bit, had a way early lunch, was planning on fitting breakfast in then between lunch and afternoon snack, but work got in the way. Walked.
    August 4 (99 pts): Almost missed doing weights but was able to fit them in. Walked.
    August 5 (99 pts): Had to re-arrange some meals due to running out of turkey breast, but otherwise fine. Walked.
    August 6 (99 pts): Ate according to plan today. Walked, somehow fit in weights.
    August 7 (99 pts): Ate according to plan today. Didn't walk, so walked 5x this week.
    August 8 (98 pts): Due to getting very involved in some work, I completely missed a meal. Didn't walk (new week).
    August 9 (98 pts): Still good, though I was so tired due to working late last night I didn't walk. Need to walk every day for the rest of the week otherwise it's -1 pt. Ate by plan and did weights.
    August 10 (98 pts): Had planned cheat meal today, going out with other grad students in my class for lunch. Walked.
    August 11 (97 pts): Didn't walk this morning - was too tired when my alarm went off (-1). I need to go to bed much earlier tonight so I'm not screwing this up. Didn't do weights today, meaning I need to do them Thursday and Saturday.
    August 12 (97 pts): Walked, ate, etc.
    August 13 (95 pts): Slight minor depression, I think due to not eating quite as much as I should be and being under a huge new pressure to finish my thesis work while at the same time determining that I will be delayed by at least 2 months with it, and I'm saying this 8-9 months out. Anyway, missed a meal, and I'll just say now I missed a weights workout this week, so -2 pts.
    August 14 (95 pts): And didn't do weights today (-1).
    August 16 (94 pts): Bah, missed a day. Good news is I'm starting to figure out how I can fit in my schedule eating 5x/day, working out (did that today), walking in the AM, AND doing ~10+ hrs of work/day while still getting kinda sorta enough sleep.
    August 17 (94 pts): As I said, getting back on track. Walked, weights, ate, slept. And 10 hrs of work.
    August 18 (94 pts): Didn't walk, that makes 2x this week. Ate when 'spected.
    August 20 (93 pts): Yeah, missed a day updating. Walked, etc. today.
    August 21 (93 pts): Actually did cardio -- didn't walk, but biked this morning.
    August 22 (93 pts): Did good.
    August 23 (93 pts): And nothing bad to report for today.
