    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 January 1, 2011. You must have your starting post up by 9:00 AM (EDT) on January 1, 2011--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 did HORRIBLY over the holiday period, so now it's time to get back on track.

    Goal: to lose 10lbs+ of body fat in January (I'm going to assume that anything above 6lbs lost in the first 2 weeks is loss of water retention and not count it towards the goal)

    How I'm going to get there:

    NUTRITION targets (get as close as possible. Within +/- 5g will not count as a point lost)
    Lifting days: P: 230 C: 137 F: 83
    Non-lifting: P: 188 C: 105 F: 81
    Optional cheat meal on Friday night

    Extra target: no smoking or drinking in January (each cigarette or alcoholic drink constitutes a point deduction)

    EXERCISE targets:
    3-4 lifting days:
    Monday (Chest, biceps, triceps)
    Wednesday (Legs)
    Friday (Back, shoulders)
    [optional] On Sat/Sun (Bit of everything)

    Minimum 3 days of martial arts training (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)

    STARTING STATS:
    Weight: 261.5lbs
    Waist: 44"
