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

    May '12

    May 1 Tuesday-Got some rest. Ate two cookies, but for the amount I'm paying in rent I felt obligated to take them from the office when I was in there. Strolled with the dog. Went swimming with the kid. A few laps. Mostly playing with the football. Other than 2 cookies ate nutritious food. Not a heavy duty workout, but not pure couch potato either.

    :kickrock:
    Weeks vary depending on which city I'm in (and don't worry, the dog will be walked by someone else if it's not me), but here's what I'm shooting for:

    Monday: Walk dog morning, upper body, walk dog evening
    Tuesday: Walk dog morning, yoga, walk dog evening
    Wednesday: Switch cities, exercise bike
    Thursday: Switch cities, walk dog morning or evening, upper body
    Friday: walk dog morning, switch cities
    Saturday: Volunteer Challenger Baseball, sleep
    Sunday: Switch cities, exercise bike, walk dog evening
