I ran a great 10 miler. Well, I am pretty sure it was 10 miles. Mr Garmin is down and not working, so I have to guess about how far I have gone. I ran 6.5 and then rounded back to the house and picked up Nellie the dog and took her for 3.5. She was very happy and a good little runner today. She is staying right with me and only pulls me for the first few blocks or so.

I am putting together a little challenge for some friends and family. (I am copying my cousin in Utah) It is called "Fit by Fall". I have gained a little weight over the summer, because of lack of motivation and just poor eating habits, and I would like to lose about 15 lbs more, I thought this might motivate me to get my butt in gear by Thanksgiving. I actually started this past Monday with another group, but the group I have put together starts on Monday the 10Th. We will go for 15 weeks and which ever team has the most pts at the end of 15 weeks, gets all the money. This is how it works.
We have 4 different teams. (it could be more or less, depending on how many people you have committed) Each team member earns daily pts and then a few weekly pts as well. Which ever team has the most pts at the end of each week will win for that week. This means, that team DOES NOT have to put money in the pot. If your team loses, then each team member on your team puts $5 in the pot for that week. At the end of 15 weeks, if your team has the most pts, your team splits the money.
This is how you earn pts or loose pts.
5 fruits/Veg: 2pts
No eating after 9 Pm: 1 pt
48 oz of water: 2pts
No sweets: 5pts
if you ate only ONE treat: 2pts
min of 30 min exercise a day, 6 days a week: 5 pts
Pounds lost: 10 pts per pound
Maintain: 5 pts
Gain pound: -10 pts per pound
Inches lost/month: 5 pts per inch lost around hips and waist.
So far it has been a fun way to be sure I am eating enough fruits and Veg and drinking enough water. The first couple of days, I struggled with not pulling out a snack after the kids went to bed, but I have followed through for my team, and I hope when I weigh on Monday, I can add even more pts with a weight lose.
