Quest for the #100daychip

I like having goals to keep myself motivated and accountable. My friend Brad first created the #7daychip and then the #30daychip (I still haven't made it there yet!), and as of tomorrow there will be a #100daychip to work towards.  My only goal for the #7daychip (and #30daychip) is to be accountable of every single thing that goes into my mouth on a daily basis (In the words of Weight Watchers, "If you bite it, write it."). I'm currently on Day 15! Woohoo!  So anyways, I thought I'd set some different goals for the #100daychip:

1. Water.  I do not drink 8 glasses of water per day. Honestly, on most days I don't drink ANY water. I count my coffee as water because, well, it's made of water! But I digress. I know that I cannot drink 8 glasses without spending 90% of the day in the bathroom, so I'm going to shoot for half of that. 32 ounces of water per day. Ugh.

2. Running. Because of my sinus infection (and some other lame excuses), I haven't been running as much as usual. I have a half-marathon coming up in September and I really need to train. Not to mention the 10-mile race on April 2nd, but I think I'll be fine for that one :)  From here on out, I will run at least 3x per week.

3. Food. As if the water isn't going to be difficult enough, I'm going completely overboard here. Oh, I can't believe I'm going to say this out loud (well, you know what I mean)... I will have no Chinese food for 100 days.  Oh.my.God.

Impressive list! I commend you on your choices. I could not give up chinese food for 100 days ... I've been using my Wok SOO much with my dieting.

GL on the water!!!w

Thanks! Hmm, I hadn't thought about home-made Chinese food. I actually meant Chinese food as far as take-out/delivery.

I'm terrible with my water consumption, too. Even carrying a water bottle with me everywhere I go is not enough to get me to drink it.

And homemade chinese food shouldn't count towards the 100 days; its homemade!

No Chinese food sounds scary. :) Your goals sound great!

Sarah Kopf said...

I almost said, "Oh my God! No Chinese food?!" And then promptly remembered that I haven't had it in two months now... Oh, those terrible emotional habits! :)


P.S. I'm new to your blog. Hope you don't mind.

Excellent goals! I'm the same way with water. I can drink it in the summer when it's hot, but in the winter time, I barely drink any.

I'm so excited about this challenge!

Great goals! I'm so impressed. I have been wondering about those Chip thingys. So many people have been tweeting about them. I still don't quite get it, but at least I'm starting to understand!

This morning Hungry Girl was reviewing frozen foods. One that caught my eye was the Lean Cuisine Casual Cuisine Spring Rolls. She said they were amazing and had a PP value of 5. Here is the link to her newsletter today. http://www.hungry-girl.com/biteout/show/1944

Great goals!!

Oh my dear, dear new BFF Laura! I hardly know you, but could hug you right now! You told me about PB2 on my blog and I bought some this morning. OMGosh!!! It is SO good! Wow! Thank you SO much for telling me about it. 5 points or 1...um, I'll take 1, thank you very much. Thanks so much again, and again. You've allowed me to eat my peanut butter and enjoy it once again. Yay! LOL!
