    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 JULY 1, 2012. You must have your starting post up by 9:00 AM (EDT) on JULY 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):

    7/15- I'm going to sub the walking I did outside today and the 3 straight hours of cleaning and straightening my apartment because I'm exhausted after that. 2 days last week I started walking 1.5 miles at lunch but it's been so hot and I just sweat too much, without access to a shower, I feel gross the rest of the work day... My mom took my daughter and I to Friendly's, normally I would get a veggie burger and fries but today I chose a big salad and honey mustard dressing on the side.

    :claphigh: I am on the right path, I am totally attracted to the process. July is going to be ablaze with passion and I can't wait to see what I will unveil.

    Okay this is another month of sculpting the clay I live in. So we are going to have fun with it is my month to reclaim lost moments and to activate new opportunities.

    Training is already crazy but we will continue with cardiovascular endurance, weight training six out of the seven allotted days.

    I will be harnessing the power of food whenever I need to refuel, summer is a great time to devour fresh fruits and vegetables.



    JUL 1:100 Trying to keep it 100:nod: Well, I am off to a good start, it was a beautiful training day. I am fully alive so I really can't complain.

    JUL 2: 100% Summer sizzle melt down, I am wearing my dream down as it tries to wear me out. I however shall conquer and win. Chase what you want, capture it and make it your own. The chase really is on, and the heat is not my ally. Staying hydrated has become a necessary chore.

    JUL 3: 100% Talk about a training day with no mercy, I am either experiencing my greatest fantasy or romancing my greatest nightmare. The line between pleasure and pain just became blurred as I flow with the beat of instruction and somehow manage to achieve the objective. No time to play because I am in mission-driven mode.

    JUL 4: 98% Totally Drained, I should sleep well tonight.

    JUL 8: 94% Training has been kicking my butt, not enough time to post but I did get a day off rest so here I am all ready to do it over again.

    JUL 9:Hmm, it was a wake up too funky morning breath:blank: scratch your rear, and wipe the sleep out of your eyes stumble into the shower and blast your body with cold water as you try to adjust the gosh-darn water flow...kind of mornings....( yes I know that is too much information)

    It took me an hour to become fully awake and realize I am alive and I have a mission, a plan and purpose. Part of that mission is to do better this week than the previous week...the key is progression and the door to unlock is consistency.

    My hope is that we all continue to progress as we workout this transformation process.


    Have a beautiful week all

    JUL 10: 93% Humid and mucky, makes for a sticky and hard run.
    JUL 11: 92% luego
    JUL 15: 87% The process is my friend, oh but somedays it feels like the enemy. Ouch!
    JUL 16: 87% I have to keep reminding myself why I am doing this LOL....
    My life has to bow to my training schedule

    My objective is to lower my body fat by 2% this time around.
    Currently I'm at 12%

    Training session one is all Cardiovascular mayhem with Insanity®
    in the midst of the pack.

    Training session two is total weight training.

    My real weapon is nutrition, this time around we are keep it whole and high octane.


    Today's training was not a love story but it did have aura of a romantic interlude. All things that get me closer to my goals, is what I have long to desire and crave.


    make the dream a reality everyone and stand strong.

    Jul 17 : 87% I will thank myself later
    JUL 19: 86% Today I was in the zone, we ran wind sprints, heck I have no desire to grow old gracefully, I am simply going to grow better. It was a gorgeous training day.
    July 25: 80% Wow, it is like I was abducted by the time thief and not allowed to return to this site. Busy bee, to much internet not enough time The good new is my body fat continues to drop and and I am content for the moment.
    July 26: 80% Laying on the line, getting the job done road warrior status once again.
    July 31: 75% Ending the note on a wonderful note. The future is always determined by the vision that is seen.
