12 week Challenge

I got this challenge from my friend Beth. I think I can do it. Feel free to join in.

The premise of the 12 week challenge is to achieve a set of goals every day, each being worth one point:

1. Seven hours of sleep (not necessarily consecutive)
2. 45 minutes of exercise (not necessarily consecutive)
3. 64 ounces of water
4. No sweets
5. No soda, unhealthy snacks, or bad fast food
6. Eat two servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit
7. No eating after dinner, or 8pm
8. 15 minutes of scripture reading or other religious text
9. Write in your journal (any length)
10. Express sincere appreciation or praise to your spouse (or someone special)

***SUNDAYS are FREE POINTS DAYS, where you may do/eat whatever you like

I did forget to update my push up challenge. I was able to complete the 6 weeks. However it took me more like 8 weeks. Sadly I was never able to reach the one hundred push ups. The good news is I went from being able to max out at 23 all the way to 70 push ups. For me that is a huge accomplishment.

I will try to update this challenge on my blog.

  1. I love the idea and all the little goals are perfect for me but I don't understand the challenge part. Do you try to get all 10 points each day or are you comparing notes with someone?
