May 2022 Add 'em up Goals & Habits Challenge~All welcome!

Come join us in setting and achieving goals to promote your overall wellness! We are a friendly and welcoming group who love to chat when we have time, but please also feel free to join us if you want to just focus on your goals. No pressure here to address everyone; share as little or as much as you want!

We have been doing this challenge for many years now. While it is not strictly about fitness goals, we agree that our daily habits work together with our fitness goals to make us happier and more balanced, so we combine them in this challenge. Feel free to join us! You can tailor it to your schedule if you need to take a week off for vacation or only count so many days. Whatever works for you!

Premise: Choose your goals for the month. Every time you complete a goal you get a point. Multiply your number of daily goals by the number of days in the month. This is your max total points. If you choose, reward yourself for reaching a certain percentage of your max possible (I use 90% for my personal goal), multiply by your max to get your total goal points. I also give myself extra credit options.

**Take this challenge however you wish. I used to total my points all the time but have fallen away from that and now just track my goals. There really are no rules, your challenge is your own, we're just here for support and to help each other with accountability. We would love to have you join us!

Can I be in?

I've done this before, and it didn't go well, but I'm feeling the NEED (she says with knitted brow, and a sigh of self-disappointment).

Using Vannie's as a starting point, as so many match what I need (THANKYOU!), but being modest so don't set myself up for failure. Ten of them feels ok for me - but I could be wrong!

Some are a new challenge, some are already typical but need to remain once I go back to work (26-Apr), & some are improving on established behaviours.

Week of 1st to 7th

01. 0 Up at 7:15 (EC: 1pt for every 15 min early)
02. 0 Bed by 11:30 (EC: 1pt for every 15 min early)
03. 1 Daily meditation
04. 3 Daily food logging in FitBit
05. 2 No food after 9 (the deadly snack zone)
06. 2 Reading my BOOK in bed, rather than putzing on the phone
07. 3 Hit the gym every day - but that COULD mean just a stretch.
08. 1 Some kind of needlework (machine/knit/embroider/crochet) every day, even if only 10min (1 pt for every extra 10 min)
09. 1 Some kind of gardening every day, even if only 10min (1 pt for every extra 10 min)
10. 3+10 10k steps per day (EC 1 pt for every 2k over that)

Extra Credit
1 Walk Alice TWICE rather than just the once (1pt)
0 Do a C25k run (1pt ea.)
2 Weigh less than the day before (1pt)
0 Weight down by 0.7 kg or more for the week (only 1pt as have earned pts being less on any day) [start 64.2kg - earn if 63.5 by 7th]
0 Weight down by 3kg or more for the month (5pt bonus - for incentive) [start 64.2kg - earn if 61.2 by end of May]

Max points without extras: 310 (10 avg pts/day)
Points goal (90%): 279 (9 avg pts/day)
Reward: Take a day off work?

May 1-7: 29 pts (out of 70 ) = 41.4 %
May 8-14: __ pts (out of 70) = __ %
May 15-21: __ pts (out of 70) = __ %
May 22-28: __ pts (out of 70) = __ %
Mar 29-31: __ pts (out of 30) = __ %

Total for the month: 29/310 = 9.4 %
