I was all over the idea of this challenge a couple days ago, and on Memorial Day I did 30 crunches and didn't eat anything after 9 pm (which is and was hard for me, especially the sweets). Even though I wouldn't get any "points" for it.
But today was a diff. story. All three kids woke up coughing and congested, and everyone stayed home from school. To top it off, I've had a headache all day, and my ear hurts, even though I'm already on an antibiotic for strep throat. Ugh.
So tonight I nearly forgot, but about 7:50 I took the kids outside and walked around the block. It took us exactly 15 minutes because we took it easy.
It's nearly 9 pm now and I'm not eating anything, and I'm sipping my extra 8 oz water right now (I drink a LOT throughout the day, easily 64 oz--I'm a water girl--so I will make sure I get in my "extra" by specifically pouring at least 8 oz a day into a measuring cup and drinking it from there, on top of what I normally drink), and I even did my 30 crunches even though that's the last thing I wanted to do tonight.
So, woohoo, Stewbert. That's the point of things like this. If it were just me I'd say, "Who cares, we're all sick, I'll start this in a couple days instead."
But instead, I have 28 pts. for today. Yay!
