    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 June 1, 2011. You must have your starting post up by 9:00 AM (EDT) on June 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):

    Thursday: One-hour walk, Weight training: full body, 10 minutes stretching
    Friday: One-hour walk, 10 minutes stretching
    Saturday: One-hour walk, Capoeira, Acrobatics


    MEAL SCHEDULE
    Four meals per day, at least 2500 kcal, at least 1kg fruits and vegetables, at least 500mL lactose-reduced milk, at least 2L water, maximum 1 cup of coffee


    STARTING STATS
    WEIGHT: 63.5kg(140lbs)
    BODY FAT: 12%(?)
    ARMS: 35cm(13.8")

    WAIST:

    I can keep to pretty much any project for two weeks before my interest wanes or I get lazy. I've been really lazy about making my workouts and eating enough to maintain my weight. I expect this to be pretty expensive, as fruits and vegetables in Japan are not cheap. The daily one-hour walks are more for mental clarity than actual fitness. Despite a good percentage of Japanese people being lactose intolerant, lactose-reduced milk is difficult to find here. Thanks to that fact, I have to buy milk and add lactase drops at least 24 hours in advance. It's a pain in the behind and likely to be a source of lost points, but I included it anyway. I've added a lot, so it's easy for me to lose points if I'm not working hard.

    Missing my workout on June 4 will not result in lost points, as that is planned. I will do weight training on June 5 instead.
    Missing my workout on June 16 will not result in lost points, as that is planned and I will do it on June 17 instead.

    DAILY LOG

    June 1 [96 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 4 Meals (missed last one), 10min+ Stretching

    June 2 [92 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+ (missed by about 1000kcal!), 4 Meals (missed breakfast), One-Hour Walk, Gym

    June 3 [85 Points]:
    2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 2L+ Water, 4 Meals (missed breakfast), One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching

    June 4 [80 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 4 Meals (missed one), One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching

    June 5 [74 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 4 Meals (missed one), One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Gym

    June 6 [69 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+ (Hitting this is beginning to seem impossible), 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables (This too. I just can't afford it), 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 4 Meals (missed one), One-Hour Walk

    June 7 [66 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 10min+ Stretching
    Today's 500ml of lactose reduced milk wasn't reduced enough. Ugh.

    June 8 [62 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+ (I actually suspect that I made it, but I didn't count properly), 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables (I might have figured out a trick to this...), 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 10min+ Stretching

    June 9 [54 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 2L+ Water, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, Gym, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Entry Update
    Sacrificed a point for coffee in an attempt to kill my two-day headache. It didn't work, so it's probably not caffeine withdrawal.

    June 10 [47 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 2L+ Water, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Entry Update
    Forgot to buy milk and add the lactase drops ahead of time.

    June 11 [39 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 2L+ Water, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Capoeira, Acrobatics
    Headache still continues. Very bad day challenge-wise. I almost ate 1kg of vegetables. I crapped out at 800g.

    June 12 [32 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 2L+ Water, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching
    Headache comes and goes now. Still no fun. I think it might be my sinuses. Tried to caffeine it away, but it did nothing, except make me very productive in my work. Thirty-two points by the 12th of the month must be some sort of record.

    June 13 [27 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, 10min+ Stretching

    June 14 [21 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching
    Got my water at the last minute! Still waiting for the lactose drops in my milk to get it ready for tomorrow.

    June 15 [16 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Capoeira
    My bad knee just got worse. Not even an hour before my Capoeira class, it flares up and I can barely walk. Buying a knee support tomorrow. I'm missing a lot of stuff, but I'm consistently drinking my water and getting my four meals. Yay!

    June 16 [11 Points]:
    Missed 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 2L+ Water, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching
    I finally made 2500kcal!

    June 17 [4 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500mL+ Lactose Reduced Milk, 2L+ Water, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching

    June 18 [-5 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 2L+ Water, 500mL+ Lactose Reduced Milk, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching, Capoeira, Acrobatics
    I've almost finished putting together a stretching routine. Should make things easier when it's done.
    Knee acted up again. Actually, it acted up the day before, but I had nothing scheduled, so it didn't matter.

    June 19 [-9 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching

    June 20 [-14 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 500mL+ Lactose Reduced Milk, One-Hour Walk
    Made it to Capoeira!

    June 21 [-20 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, 2L+ Water, 500mL+ Lactose Reduced Milk, One-Hour Walk, 10min+ Stretching

    ...

    June 29 [-69 Points]:
    Missed seven updates, missed 2500kcal+ eight times, missed 2L water six times, missed 500ml+ Lactose Reduced Milk seven times, missed Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day six times, missed One Hour Walk eight times, missed 10min+ stretching seven times

    June 30 [-74 Points]:
    Missed 2500kcal+, 1kg+ Fruits/Vegetables, Max 1 Cup of Coffee per Day, One Hour Walk, 10min+ stretching

    Will measure for end stats soon.
