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

    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 November 1, 2009. You must have your starting post up by 7:00 AM (EST) on November 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):

    Count me in. I've been off the fitness for a couple of months, need to get back in shape a bit for the new year family visits :)

    .... well I have been in, just not updating. I completely missed the beginning but have since been eating clean with cheat meals reserved for weekends. I have so far lost 1 lbs and have lifted my personal best on overhead press and am up to good numbers again with squats.

    3 workouts per week - none missed so far.

    October Challenge

    This month I'm going to adjust my plan to be a little more practical. My weight training and eating aren't going to change, but I'm going to drop the evening cardio. I don't have time for it, and I often feel like a cardio criminal for not getting it done. I'm going to get all my exercise done at the gym this month.

    November 1, 2009: Off
    -0 points [100 points]

    November 2, 2009: Off
    -0 points [100 points]

    November 3, 2009: I'm 180 lbs right now, I fattened up a bit on my time off. I didn't take measurements at the start of this month, but that's OK.
    -0 points [100 points]

    -----
    Unfortunately, I fell off the wagon for a full week. It was a combination of laziness and tons of available Halloween candy. I'm going to dock -30 points for that, but this month ain't over yet! I have to say, as inconsistent as I've been in these challenges (sometimes falling off the wagon for several days) they have personally been very helpful in getting back on. Sure, it's bad to miss 1/3 the month and dock 30 points, but If I wasn't participating in this it would be easier to let the next week roll by without making any changes. This 100 challenge is always in the back of my mind, which is good.
    -----

    November 9, 2009: Exercised back at the gym, and ate on target! As I'm coming off a bad run of eating, I needed to exercise a good deal of control today so I didn't just fall back into the "sure, eat some cookies!" mindset.
    -0 points [70 points]

    November 10, 2009: Ate on target again, exercised biceps and triceps at the gym.
    -0 points [70 points]

    November 11, 2009: Ate on target, and exercised chest. It was a particularly good workout, I think I've hit the exact balance of challenging weight / not too heavy that my form is at all compromised.
    -0 points [70 points]

    Well, this was a lame month. I'm going to make a better go of it in December!

    MY BALANCE OF NOVEMBER
    I started losing 15 points, just for forgeting this. After that, I lost 5 points, 3 of them due to eating unscheduled food. The other 2 happened for missing an update, and both of them were on sundays (when I don't workout). 2 cheat meals were on weekends too.

    What does it shows me?
    That my main problems happens when I'm not working out. For december I must start doing something in days off that keeps me focused.

    TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 115,2kg -> 111,7kg (3,5kg / 7,7 pounds)
    Good month, in my opinion.

    Of course I'm in. How else am I going to stay on track?

    GOAL:

    Bulking to crest 160 (hopefully) and ......
    to complete four 100 Challenges in a row!!

    Note: Amended Nov 16th to a 'cutting schedule'.


    STARTING STATS / ENDING STATS:

    Biceps 12.5 / 12.5
    Calves 13.75 / 13.5
    Chest 39 / 39
    Forearms 10.75 / 11
    Hips 37.25 / 37.25
    Thigh 22 / 22
    Waist 35.75 / 35 (at naval)
    Wt 158 / 155
    Ht 5' 10"
    B.F. b/t 16% - 18%

    WORKOUT SCHEDULE:
    M - F cycle
    1 - Chest/Back
    2 - Cardio
    3 - Arms & Shoulders
    4 - Cardio
    5 - Legs
    6- Cardio
    wash, rinse, repeat....
    Sat/Sun - Off (cardio will be a bonus but not scheduled)
    Weekly weigh-ins on Tuesday

    DIET:

    5 meals per day with 1 cheat per week permitted.

    Sunday, November 1st - No workout scheduled. The permitted weekly cheat meal wasn't really worth it.
    - 0 points (100)
    Monday, November 2nd - I felt like starting this cycle with cardio (especially because of the post-cheat meal remorse). So, interval on stationary bike 24 mins done. Diet on track.
    - 0 points (100)
    Tuesday, November 3rd - Solid Chest & Back session and diet on track.
    Weight: 158
    - 0 points (100)
    Wednesday, November 4th - Interval on the bike 24 mins. Diet on track.
    - 0 points (100)
    Thursday, November 5th - Arms & Shoulders done. Diet on track.
    - 0 points (100)
    Friday, November 6th - Missed updating and diet not quite good enough. Cardio interval session done though.
    - 2 points (98)
    Saturday, November 7th - No workout scheduled. Diet off track.....again <sigh>. Weekends never seem to work out very well. Note: Next month (and possibly some more) its cutting time. Things are going well enough but the fat level has crept up to 18% and the gut circumferance has been creeping up there as well. Other numbers have gone up in a good way so I'm not too concerned but I'm concerned enough that this will be that last bulkng month of my first bulking cycle. This decision to cut is earlier than expected but a month or two of cutting will probably still permit another brief bulk/cut cycle before the Summer so c'est la vie. Guess I'll put in a minimum weight of 154-155 and stop there regardless of where I get. Hopefully it all comes together numbers-wise. Hmmmm....
    - 1 point (97)
    Sunday, November 8th - No workout scheduled. Diet on track.
    - 0 points (97)
    Monday, November 9th - Solid Legs workout with some extra warmup time on the bike for kicks. Diet on track. Wednesday is a holiday so I'm going to do the Chest & Back session tomorrow and slot cardio in for Wednesday.
    - 0 points (97)
    Tuesday, November 10th - Chest & Back done. Diet on track.
    - 0 points (97)
    Wednesday, November 11th - Missed my workout but diet on track at least. Missed updating weight on Tuesday too.
    Weight: 157.5
    - 2 points (95)
    Thursday, November 12th - Cardio intervals on bike done - upped it a level and pounded through it (not happy about how bf% crept up so must destroy it - lol). Diet on track.
    - 0 points (95)
    Friday, November 13th - Solid Arms & Shoulders workout but diet was sub par (missed a meal).
    - 1 point (94)
    Saturday, November 14th - No workout scheduled. Diet off track (not enough food). Sick as a dog.
    - 1 point (93)
    Sunday, November 15th - No workout scheduled. Diet lacking. Sick as a dog Day #2.
    - 1 point (92 points)
    Monday, November 16th - Missing today's workout (cardio) as I'm still sick (Day #3). Further to my rant of a few days ago, I've decided I'm going to change to a 'cutting' schedule for the rest of the month and possibly until the end of December. I'm happy with some of the bulk I've put on but not happy with the minor gut that came with it. Work has been insanely stressful so part of the fat-gain is likely the result of that as well (diet has been very good though). I'm going to stick with my current workout schedule though. This will be my first "cutting" schedule and I'm curious about the results with cranking up the cardio for a while. I haven't put on a tonne of weight (around 10 pounds since July/August) so I'm only looking to drop a max of 3-5 pounds. Will incorporate a slight caloric reduction through this phase. Weekends to be non-workout days for the moment (might require a cardio session on one of them). Hopefully I can wrap this initial cut up by the end of 2009 and follow with another bulk/cut cycle before Summer 2010 (Goal=160 lbs and cut). The doughy-ness isn't much, so we'll call this an experimental 'cut'.

    Tuesday, November 17th - Sick. It sucks and I'm tired of it. Did a late night cardio since I felt bad about losing yet another point. It actually felt good. Going to just do a weights session tomorrow (Legs), cardio on Thurs and then double it up on Friday as planned. Don't want to overdo it tomorrow. Diet on track.
    Weight: 157.5
    - 0 points (91)
    Wednesday, November 18th - No workout done but diet on track. Thought I'd ease into things and take a break today. Back to normal tomorrow (Legs).
    - 1 point (90)
    Thursday, November 19th - Did a cardio session but no weights. Diet on track but a good ol' flu has really settled in and this week is pretty much a write-off. No workout planned for tomorrow. Going to try and get some rest through the weekend. Start fresh on Monday.

    - 1 point (86)
    Sunday, November 29th - Diet on track. No workout scheduled.
    - 0 points (86)
    Monday, November 30th - well missed updating and didn't work out. Not much of a last day. Switched the plan half-way through from bulking to cutting. Wasn't happy with the waist measurement increase or the doughy-ness I could see. In the end the final stats ended up pretty good. Noticeable changes include a 3lb weight loss and a 3/4" drop in the waist measurement. Going to take the first week off from working out in December. My motivation is a bit in the dumps and a break is probably a good idea. Going to try and maintain diet though. Goal for December is continued cutting and see how it looks. I understand there's a better response to bulking after a cutting round anyway so that looks like a good plan for the early new year to crank it back up to 160 before the Spring. Going to have to take a good long look at diet. I'm not sure the ratios were right over the last few months.

    Overall I don't think I did a great job, but this leaves me a lot of room for improvement. I will weigh in tonight (Dec 2) and give the results on my December challange as a beginning benchmark. As I reflect over the last month I realize that I didn't try very hard at anything, I let myself have too many cheat meals, and I let a pseudo GF get in the way of workout time. Sadly she is gone now (As of Monday), but I have more time in my life to focus on me! Here's to December!

    GOAL: CUTTING

    My plan for this month:
    - 30min of cardio on weekday (Mon-Fri)
    - weight train for all body parts at least once a week which of course can be trained separately.

    *Hopefully my post this month will not be missing without my knowledge.

    1 Nov - Did some chest, triceps and lower back exercises today. [100pts]

    2 Nov - No cardio -1. 2 pieces of cakes 9 I can't seem to resist free food. I'll try harder next time) -1. Gotta brush up. [98pts]

    3 Nov - Light cardio. :claplow: Good job gal. Keep it up :tu:. Well food was not good today (again). Ate too small a breakfast and was hungry by lunch time that I gobbled up many small sandwiches (tuna, ham&cheese). Ate about 1/3 of a cake and 1/2 of small fries (McDonalds) -1 (Trying to curb my craving here). I still have a long way to go to lead a healthy lifestyle.[97pts]

    4 Nov - 30min of moderate intensity cadio. Lots of proteins today. I've never eaten this much for years. [97pts]

    5 Nov - Weigh-in this morning showed a body fat% loss of ~0.4%. I'm excited. :D ... Did 30min light cardio. I binged just now. Ate some carbs, fish and a few bites of apple at 11pm! Well I guess this is life. Gotta have lots of proteins for dinner next time so that I'll not be hungry in the night. -1 [96pts]

    6 Nov - As expected, morning weigh-in showed an increase of 0.3% fat. Caught a cold today and feel sluggish. no cardio. -1 Will be doing legs tomorrow with the personal trainer, should be a good session. [95pts]

    7 Nov - Leg day, not so intense as I'm having a cold. Hopefully it'll (the cold) be gone by Monday. [95pts]

    8 Nov - Rest day. Got a new router today so my internet problem is now over...those were the days.[95pts]

    9 Nov - 30min cardio. Good job. Got it done at 10pm. [95pts]

    10 Nov - Did leg exercises during the PT session. 30min cardio. [95pts]

    11 Nov - No cardio. -1. I'm tired tonight and finding it hard to keep to "clean" food. It's possible that this lack of motivation comes from the lack of progress in my weight and fat loss (both of them show no sign of moving). That's due to my food. It's a cycle I have to break. [94pts]

    12 Nov - Boxing for 40min. Some arms and shoulder exercises. [94pts]

    13 Nov - No cardio -1. [93pts]

    14 Nov - Leg exercises. About 30min cardio (almost give it up). Part of the cardio was the navy 1.5miles fitness test done on Star Trac treadmill. I got 60 points and after researching what this meant, it's a good (low) score, and I was running at 10km/hr ...my usual maximum speed for 14-15min. Oh my....I got a lot to brush up on not that I'm in any position to join the navy. :P [93pts]

    15 Nov - Walk for about 1hr. [93pts]

    16 Nov - I ate cold tuna (straight from the fridge) and suddenly I got this rashes on my limbs. I've been eating canned tuna for quite a while now so I'm not sure what went wrong. Just took the pill to encounter allergy, will have to see what happens next. No cardio -1. [92pts]

    17 Nov - No cardio. I'm very very sleepy at the moment due to yesterday's lack of proper sleep. [91pts]

    18 Nov - Finally a cardio session! 30min. Did it at 11pm after I attended a wedding. [91pts]

    19 Nov - No cardio. -1. [90pts]

    20 Nov - No cardio. -1. [89pts]

    21 Nov - Did some weight training exercises [89pts]

    22 Nov - Some leg exercises and 30min on recumbent bike [89pts]

    23 Nov - No cardio. -1 [88pts]

    24 Nov - No cardio -1 [87pts]

    25 Nov - No cardio -1 [86pts]

    26 Nov - I don't know why I bother to update -_-"..coz I'm again too darn lazy to do cardio and it's now 10.30pm. Gotta wake up early tomorrow for work (got lots of work to be done). -1. I'm losing the motivation to exercise again. @_@ [85pts]

    27 Nov - ! Still no cardio... -1 and that's nothing from Mon-Fri! wow.. I'll do cardio tomorrow as much as I can. Did some abs exercise last night (26 Nov). [84pts]

    28 Nov - Upper body workouts. Cardio for 30min. [84pts]

    29 Nov - Leg day. [84pts]

    30 Nov - Last day of the month. Did about 10 min cardio when I was disturbed and was needed to do something. So I decided that it's really not a day to do cardio exercises...excuse. -1 Just checked my health record. I gained about 0.1kg of fats, 0.2kg of lean mass and there's 0.1kg that I gained (mosly likely it's water weight)...that's an increase of 0.4kg from last month. This is a result of calories excess and slack in the exercise routine. [83pts]

    RETROSPECTIVE:
    I think this is one of the better scores I posted for one of these challenges. Funny, though, no change in basic composition. I think I need to reinstigate the morning cardios. Getting to bed earlier will be the goal for December to get in those morning workouts!

    Workout Schedule
    Sunday - Friday
    Morning Cardio

    Saturday
    No Workouts

    Meal Schedule
    Meals every 2.5 hours
    Protein at every meal
    At least 225g protein a day, total Calories should be around 2500
    Must write down everything I eat.

    Nov 1 - 98 -2 Didn't write down everything I ate, had too much food at the restaurant when we went out with family. Workouts were great, in the AM did 20 minutes on the erg at a slow pace. In the evening did chest, shoulders, arms and abs. By the end I was having difficulty doing even one unassisted pushup.
    Nov 2 - 97 -1 Overshot my calorie goal when I went out to eat. Otherwise great day. The ergging in the morning was wonderful. It is sick but I look forward to getting out of bed and hopping on it. Guess that's what happens when I don't erg regularly for a month. The evening weights was good, pushed really hard throughout.
    Nov 3 - 96 -1 Still above my calorie goal... grr. Feeling sore from yesterday, did an extremely slow (for me) erg piece at about 2:20 for 35 minutes. Hope I feel better tomorrow AM. Solid weights workout in the evening.
    Nov 4 - 95 -1 Not tracking food intake still. Worked out for about 1.5 hrs total today.
    Nov 5 - 95 Finally focusing on the task at hand, eat right + workout.
    Nov 8 - 87 -2 missed updates, -3 not tracking food, -3 ate too much. My head was elsewhere the past few days. I was still doing workouts but wasn't keeping true to everything else. Going to refocus on Monday.
