day one

this is the first day of the 8 week fitness challenge I'm doing with some girlfriends
(and their girlfriends... 67 people total) 
my game face is ON!
the rules are this:

No desserts (6 points + 1 bonus point = 7 points)
No soda (6 points + 1 bonus point = 7 points)
No eating after 8pm (6 points + 1 bonus point = 7 points)
15 minutes of Scripture study** (6 points + 1 bonus point = 7 points)
Exercise 5 times a week for 30 minutes at a time (5 points + 1 bonus point = 6 points)
Weekly Challenge (6 points + 1 bonus point = 7 points)
You will receive one free day a week.  So everything is based on 6 days, except for exercise which is only 5.

Total points possible per week: 41

Weekly Challenges
Week 1:  Keep a food journal every day
Week 2:  Get 7 hours a sleep every night
Week 3:  5 servings of veggies every day
Week 4:  Drink 64 fluid ounces of water every day
Week 5:  Do 100 sit ups and 50 push ups every day.  Does not have to be one sitting
Week 6:  Eat 4 servings of fruit every day
Week 7:  Eat 5 small meals every day
Week 8:  Run/walk at least a half marathon (on top of the 5 days of exercise).  Does not have to be completed in one day, but needs to total 13.1 miles)

**A note on the The "scripture study" requirement... this can be from your choice of book of scripture or any other book that you read from that provides spiritual/religious guidance.  In this challenge we are aiming for a more well-balanced life that includes spiritual nourishment of some kind, whether it's religious, or more self-help... whatever it is that feeds your soul is your "scripture study".

I think I can, I think I can...
try not to think differently of me for posing so awkwardly
