I think I have it

A New Challenge!

I've been asked by a few for help through the holidays! And since they're already upon us...we'd better get started!

Here's my idea. Starting next week, we'll keep track of how much junk food we eat. Whether it's chips, soda, cookies, candy you have to write it down as a point. Each serving or item of junk food equals one point. We'll keep track of points from Nov. 9th to Jan. 4th. The person with the least amount of points wins!

Oooo-let's make this more interesting. For everyday that you eat absolutely NO JUNK you can erase one day of junk...so it will look like you had two days of no points. If you continue to overcompensate in this way you can actually end up with positive points!

And the person who wins...gets a little surprise from me! Probably nothing awesome like a pair of running shoes, but a little healthy something in the mail is always fun!

This is perfect. I hate not eating any treats this time of year, but I need some sort of motivation there to control myself...and this is perfect! Thank you so much! I am totally in. Do we need to report to you each week or just at the end?

Let's report every week...and since right now it's just you and me, that should be easy :)...still waiting for you pizza crust recipe!

Yes I am in. BUT here is my question... what if I have A ton of chips or alot of ice cream in one sitting... still one point? I mean obviously I will stear away from this :) but just incase! I will start off by going out for cheese fries tonight... that would be 5 points for me!
