With the winter weather comes a waning enthusiasm for exercising and committing to my health. I’ve begun to struggle with getting myself to trek across the windy chilled campus and I find myself craving carbs and continually seeking the warmth of my bed and the comfort of my books.
I need a kick in the pants to loosen my pants, especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner!
I’ve been looking into various 30 day challenges but they all seem to require a physical presence, too much of a commitment, or even payment (GASP!). So instead of waiting around for the stars to align (when I’ll probably have eaten myself into a carb coma), I was considering starting a challenge of my own.
Basically, it would involve self tracking the amount of time you exercised and the amount of weight you lost over a 30 day span.
- Points will be given for each pound lost, each blog post about the challenge, and every hour of exercise – with the winner being the one with the most points.
- Email me with your points every 10 days (honor system style people) and I will share them in a post.
- I will aim to reblog any inspiring/motivational/struggling posts related to this challenge.
- I will aim to blog at least every other day so that others can feel free to share their experiences and seek support in the comments.
AND the winner and runner up will receive a super special surprise (under $20 because I’m a poor college student).
For right now, I just need to know if people would be interested in participating in this challenge. Please leave a comment below if this sounds like something you’d be interested in participating in, share this around if you think you’d know others who would be interested, and feel free to provide any pointers or suggestions for the structure of this challenge. I’d like to know that we can find at least 10 committed people before beginning this adventure.
