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

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

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


    Until the challenge begins, please refrain from making any posts in this thread except your Official Entry post. 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 December 1, 2009. You must have your starting post up by 7:00 AM (EST) on December 1, 2009--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):

    I'm in.

    My weight is usually quite steady--within 5 pounds the last few years. This month I've been up and down 8 pounds. Not sure if that's Thanksgiving, mild depression, or just a sign of a broken scale. Time will tell. Did a nice bike ride this morning.

    I am in again.:nod:

    Conclusion:
    Wasnt the best of months, although my end weight was 197.4, I was down to 195.4 a few days ago so my weight fluctuated just a bit and happened to be highest on the last day - oh well just means Ill do even better next month unless it keeps going up then we got a problem. I was feeling a little down this month compared to last, November I almost hit my goal of 9lbs this month I wasnt even really close. Next month im going to go for the gusto and go all out and make sure I hit my goal. I did manage 2 more points this month then the last one.

    December 100 Challenge

    In.

    Goal: Cutting - would be nice to get down to 12%-14%

    STARTING STATS / ENDING STATS:

    Biceps 12.5 / 12
    Calves 13.5 / 13.5
    Chest 39 / 38.75
    Forearms 11 / 11
    Hips 37.5 /36.5
    Thigh 22 / 21
    Waist 35 / 34 (at naval)
    Wt 155 / 152
    Ht 5' 10"
    B.F. 16 - 18%

    WORKOUT SCHEDULE:
    Mo - Chest/Back
    Tu - Cardio
    We - Legs
    Th - Cardio
    Fr - Arms/Shoulders
    Sat/Sun - Off (cardio will be a bonus but not scheduled)
    Weekly weigh-ins on Tuesdays

    DIET:

    5 meals per day with 1 cheat per week permitted.

    Tuesday, December 1st - I've decided to take the first week off and get rolling on the 7th. Since this was a last minute decision and not planned up front I'll make some deductions on the 7th. Goal is to stick with a cutting routine for the month. Stats will be posted by the 7th.

    Wednesday, December 9th - Well, I'm finally going to get back to it tomorrow with a cardio session. With the last minute decision to take time off and then procrastinating to actually get back to it I'll deduct 2 pts per day missed. Diet was pretty good throughout and weight has stayed consistent. Cutting is still the plan. Of course there are going to be some days off around Christmas - I'll figure out which ones later.
    - 20 points (80)

    Thursday, December 10th - Cardio done and diet on track. Damn near didn't go... Sadly feeling a bit under the weather (pretty pathetic timing) so I'm taking tomorrow off from going to the gym. Amending the workout schedule as well so that its a bit more logical.
    - 0 points (80)

    Tuesday, December 29th - Hmm.... How much should I penalize myself? Sadly, December has been a total write-off. Diet hasn't been terrible but it hasn't been consistent. Done some workouts but generally also inconsistent. Bummer. January goal is to get back into the groove.

    Thursday, December 31st - I'm going to consider this one a write-off but I wanted to sum up the stats for my records anyway. Diet was pretty fair all things considered and measurements dropped accordingly but the workouts suffered in a huge way. Numbers went down where I wanted them to but sadly (though not unexpectedly) numbers went down in areas I would rather they didn't as well. Good numbers - Waist and Hips down 1" each. Other numbers - Thighs down 1", Biceps down 1/2" and Chest down 1/4". Weight dropped to 152. So, bulking for the first 3 to 4 months of 2010 and then a properly done cut. Going to have to pay better attention to diet during this bulk than I have previously to keep the fat level down.

    This is actually my first post, but I'm in. My goals are basic as I'm not even in a workout routine yet. 3 meals and two snaks of fruit ir the like in between each day. And as for workout I'll be doing the p90x starting on december 1 so that's my routine. Hope I can stay with it.

    Choppie’s December 100 Challenge


    GOAL: Cutting (My real focus is working out a good set of parameters that I can use to find my way to maintainable, fulfilling lifestyle change. I guess that goal is: Guava.)


    COMMENT: I want to lose about four pounds, keep to my regular workout schedule, and stay strong through the whole month.


    WORKOUT SCHEDULE:
    Monday: weight training
    Tuesday: run or ride or hike or ski, something fun, 30 – 60 min or all day
    Wednesday: weight training
    Thursday: run or ride or hike or ski, something fun, 30 – 60 min or all day
    Friday: weight training
    Saturday run or ride or hike or ski, something fun, 30 – 60 min or all day
    Sunday: whatever, some movement like take a walk or do some foam rolling, nothing major, but something to keep me thinking about health and progress

    Mmm... the holidays. I think I am going to shirk out of el husbando's work party. So far we don't have any part invitations to juggle, which is good on this front but subject to change. I think for Christmas eve and Christmas I am going to stick the workout schedule (whatever's up that day), and hit a protein goal (probably > 100 grams) but not really sweat anything else. No drinking outside of Christmas eve, Christmas, and New Year's eve.


    NUTRITION:
    I'm focused on calories (high/low days), protein grams and percentages (40/30/30). I'm not too worried about number of meals per day, or nutrient timing (bearing it in mind, but it's not a do-or-die rule). Not worrying about number of meals should make it easy enough to handle social obligations.

    I'm playing around a little with these things, trying to find a sweet spot. Right now I'm on 1800 cals/2200 cals with >100 g protein daily. Working on eating enough veg and finding good meals to make this pretty mindless. Measurements are Friday. These guidelines may change after the 11th.

    Daily Log:
    Dec 1: Run done; cals on target; 135g protein; 39/27/34 (carb/protein/fat) 100 points
    Dec 2: Workout done; cals on target; 174 g protein' 40/32/29 (carb/protein/fat). I did go the holiday party. I had a few of the healthy apps (cheese, hummus, etc.), didn't drink, tracked it all, and had a healthy meal afterwards. Phew. 100 points
    Dec 3: Run done, cals on target, 119g protein, 39/28/33 (carb/protein/fat) 100 points
    Dec 4: I decided not to workout today, because my back is bothering me, and my workouts this week have goodmornings in them. I'm just doing some foam rolling and will move this week's workouts forward by one day (lift tomorrow, run Sunday). I'm having a freeish meal tonight with el husbando. I have already eaten 100g of protein and have 600 calories of breathing room. I'm not going to check in after dinner b/c it's time for the computer to go off. So, the day's a good one by my accounting. EDIT: Cals for the day ended up as 42/27/31 (carb/protein/fat) with 170g protein. 100 points
    Dec 5: Workout done; cals on target; 138g protein; 36/31/33 (carb/protein/fat). 100 points
    Dec 6: Workout not done; cals on target; 135g protein; 40/27/32 (carb/protein/fat). I didn't run. I am tired, my back hurts, and my body feels fragile. Not sure why that it, just a "thing," or getting used to working out again, or what. Tired. 99 points
    Dec 7: Workout done, cals low but not disastrously low, 132g protein, 33/31/36 (carb/protein/fat). 99 points
    Dec 8: Run done; cals a little high but average out right with yesterday's low; 150g protein. 99 points
    Dec 9: Workout done; cals a little high and a little high on fat, need to do a little more pre-planning on meals; 145g protein; 33/25/42 (carb/protein/fat). 99 points
    Dec 10: No workout, cals too high and too low on protein, 144g protein, 39/27/34 (carb/protein/fat). I don't feel "responsible" for missing the workout as it's due to a pain problem (brief detail in my journal), but I need to be a little more careful with my cals and protein, so I'm dinging a point. 98 points
    Dec 11: Workout done; cals good; 135.5g protein; 33/30/37 (carb/protein/fat). 98 points
    Dec 12: Run done. Don't know cals. We had some friends over to trim the tree and I had an off meal. Fondue - last minute throw-together. :o It was good. :nod: I didn't drink. I'm comfortable with a free meal or two a week as long as everything else is on track and the changes are still evident. I think I'll run the cals tomorrow for a terrifying reality check, but right now it's bed. :) 98 points
    Dec 13: No workout, cals a little low, 32/31/37 (carbs/protein/fat). 98 points
    Dec 14: Workout done, cals a little low, 33/38/29 (carbs/protein/fat). 98 points
    Dec 15: No workout. I worked quite late last night and overslept this morning. I got home at 8 and didn't feel like going for a run. I am nonplussed. I'm not sure if that means I'm lazy, or I'm becoming more at home with finding a livable balance. :confused: But I'm taking a point for it :nod: and a point for a super duper out of whack ratio today (lack of planning is evident). 33/17/50 (carb/protein/fat). 96 points
    Dec 16: Workout done, cals on target, fat HIGH again, 125g protein, 30/25/45 (carbs/protein/fat) 95 points
    Dec 17: Run done, cals on target, 152g protein, 39/31/30 (carbs/protein/fat) finally nailed that ratio! 95 points
    Dec 18: Workout done, cals too low, 103.6g protein (too low), 44/30/26 (carb/protein/fat) 94 points
    Dec 19: Run done, cals on target, 137.5g protein, 39/26/35 (carb/protein/fat), -1 for not updating 93 points
    Dec 20: Day off, cals a little low, 117g protein, 40/27/27/6 (carb/protein/fat/alcohol - Fitday thinks that alcohol is shumai, I guess :confused: ). I'm done taking points for not updating before I go to bed. If I get home at 1:30am and don't feel like firing up the computer I don't see that as a failure of plan, or detrimental to my progress. It's just my life ATM. 93 points
    Dec 21: Cals low again, I need to bump them up and get my cycle back, workout done, 40/30/29 (carbs/protein/fat) 93 points
    Dec 22, 23 Cals high but not too high, protein low, no workouts. Pretty free tomorrow and Christmas eating wise, with workouts as planned. Finding that holiday balance. ;) 91 points
    Dec 24, 25: Workout and run done, cals probably high, ratio definitely out of wack, nothing too crazy though and okay by me fo the holidays. One night out tomorrow with friends, and the parents for New Year's and that's the end of the holiday excuses. 91 points
    Dec 26: Workout done, ate at friends for dinner, back on the wagon tomorrow until New Year's eve. 91 points
    Dec 27: No workout (off), ate poorly for dinner (but within cals) ate a shit-ton of cookies and had a G&T. Goddmanit. :ohnoes: 89 points
    Dec 28: No workout! Incredibly frustrating. I thought I didn't have to at work until 4pm. I was relaxing on the couch with my husband and he said "don't you think you should get ready for work?" Flew off to work and not home until after 10. Very annoyed with myself. Ate the remaining cookies when I got home, too. I can tell I ate too much sugar over Christmas because I'm interested in it again. :cry: 87 points
    Dec 29: Workout done, cals on track, 169g protein, 33/29/37 (carb/protein/fat) 87 points
    Dec 30: Run done, cals on track, blarblarblar good weight in, rolling along but still feeling like I'm not 100% dialed in. Looking forward to tightening things up in January 87 points

    My plan for December:

    Plan

    - 30min Cardio every weekday
    - Do 30 sit-ups per day
    - Do 30 push-ups per day
    - Food intake, if exceeds 1,500 Cal per day, deduct a point. Except the cheats ;).
    - Max 4 cheats / month

    1 Dec - Did sit-ups and push-ups. Sit-ups were fine, push-ups still have lots of room to improve. Did 30min light-moderate cardio. Food ok. Ate my last meal at 9pm, work was tedious taking a lot of "after work" time. Hope life'll get better soon. I was planning to have 6 hrs of sleep but I don't think I can manage it everyday especially on weekday. So I'll try to work out a better sleep schedule. [100pts]

    2 Dec - Food ok, though again late dinner at 10pm -_-". 2 daily workout done. No cardio -_-...it's late 12.20am. Gotta wake up early tomorrow. -1. [99pts]

    3 Dec - Wow..good day. Cardio done. All the "-ups" done. Food ok. I'm having leg cramps especially in the feet and calves. Hopefully it will go away soon. [99pts]

    4 Dec - No cardio, no sit-up, no push-up. -3. Food ok. I was going to do the sit-ups and push-ups last night but I must have fell asleep somehow coz I just woke up and realise that I slept through the night. The tenderness from cramp on my right calf is a bother right now. Due to the calories restriction, my weight is to be going down. But at a closer look, lean mass is dropping much faster than fats. Gotta watch the trend for the week. [96pts]

    5 Dec - Cheat day. sit-ups and push-ups done. Upper body workout today. [96pts]

    6 Dec - All done. [96pts]

    7 Dec - Only ate within limit and did sit-ups. No cardio no push-ups. -2 [94pts]

    8 Dec - All done. Cardio session still left a lot to be desired. [94pts]

    9 Dec - No cardio -1. Sit-up and push-up done. Food ok. [93pts]

    10 Dec - No cardio. -1. The rest ok. [92pts]

    11 Dec - Woke up with a headache today. No cardio -1. Food over the limit -1. How the points fly....[90pts]

    12 Dec - Calories over the limit -1. Otherwise good. Legs workout today. [89pts]

    13 Dec - upper body workouts. Did about 30min of light cardio. Sit-ups, push-ups. Calories within the limit set. [89pts]

    14 Dec - No cardio. No sit-up, I'm still having aches from yesterday sit-up with the machine at the gym. -2 The rest ok. I got to start to look for motivation to do cardio or I'll continue the "no cardio" pattern for another week. [87pts]

    15 Dec - NC (I-know-what) -1. Cheat day. The rest is fine. [86pts]

    16 Dec - Did my cardio! (finally) Food ok. Just did situps and pushups. A good day :D. [86pts]

    17 Dec - NC -1. The rest ok. [85pts]

    18 Dec - NC -1. NSP -1. NPP -1. Food over the limit-1. [81pts]

    19 Dec - Sit-ups, push-ups done. Food not good -1. [80pts]

    20 Dec - Done as planned. [80pts]

    21 Dec - Out late today and was too sleepy to do anything except sit-ups. Food ok. -2 NC, no push-ups. [78pts]

    22 Dec - Came home early today. Still no cardio..spent the whole night researching on heart rate monitor >_< . Was going to go for polar F11 model but found that there was a discount on the F55 model so I'm going for that. -1 food ok. The rest ok. [77pts]

    23 Dec - Good day. [77pts]

    24 Dec - NC -1. The rest ok [76pts]

    25 Dec - Came back home late today, NC -1. Cheat day. Did sit-ups but not push-ups -1. [74pts]

    26 Dec - Went out for a movie today. Sherlock Holmes was unexpectedly boring. Very sleepy afterwards. None of the plans was done. -3 [71pts]

    27 Dec - Ok day [71pts]

    28 Dec - NC, having a headache, took a pill. The rest is fine. [70pts]

    29 Dec - Calories over.-1 Did cardio. Sit-ups and Push-ups done. [69pts]

    30 Dec - NC -1. Watched Avatar today, good movie compared to the ones on show at the moment. Too sleepy, no sit-ups, no push-ups. -2. Calories ok. [66pts]

    31 Dec - Last day of 2009. Time flies! Did the usual weigh-in this morning. Despite the 1 scoop of ice-cream I had last night, my body fat hit the lowest mark at 32.9%. (according to Tanita scale) I lost ~0.69 kg of fats and gained 0.7kg of lean mass (should be water coz my body hydration shows an improvement from 48.2% on 1 Dec to 49.1% today. :D Albeit the progress is slow due to my inconsistency, the change is still going on. ...NC :P -1. No push-ups.-1. Did sit-ups. Calories ok. [64pts]

    December challenge

    I'm in! Goal is to lose 1kg per week and get to 78kg.

    Approach is to lose 1kg of body fat per week by reducing being a 1000kcal in caloric deficit each day. I plan to eat 400kcal less each day and spend 1 hour a day on aerobic exercise (e.g. rowing trainer) which should give a total deficit of 1000Cal per day (400Cal + 600Cal). This has worked before and gotten me from 88kg to 80kg in a few months.

    Stats:
    Dec 1: weight in the morning was 80.8kg. 1 hour rowing trainer and 450Cal deficit by eating less. Still one hundred points :). Tomorrow will be a day at a conference. I need to think about my lunch planning to eat a known amount of calories during the day...
    Dec 2: weight in the morning was 80.9kg. Kept to my diet in the morning but ate a triple whopper, 1160Cal. Did krav maga training in the evening for 1.5 hours (-600Cal). Total energy budget for the day is 900Cal.
    Dec 3: Weight in the morning was 79.6kg. Caloric intake during the day was 2200Cal. Not that happy this day due to yesterday. Gonna cut myself some slack for a few days and not necessarily deduct any points unless I really underperform.

    Diet: Edited Dec 19th
    Every meal has 42g protein and 15g fat. On workout days, I have 60g carbs pre and post workout. I then have 30g carbs at meal 1, or if M1 is pre workout, I'll have the extra carbs after my pwo meal. At most I'll have 1 cheat meal per week, even on xmas day. No alcohol, it fucks up my training.

    Thu = Legs
    Fri = Shoulders
    Sat = Off
