    Default BLC!!! **link posted for sign up 2-18 first day!!**

    Hi ladies! Here is the info on the biggest loser challenge coming up I was talking about. (Sorry it took me sooo long to come back and post it. Philip has been one cranky boy and getting on the desktop comp has been a challenge.) They haven't posted the new challenge with dates yet, but it should be starting up soon. Anyone interested in joining our team? (The Healthy Honeys)

    Rules

    All check-ins must be reported by a team leader in alphabetical order according to username. Where there is no leader, or no leader is available, any team member may post the points. With the increasing number of participants for these challenges, it is important for it to run as smoothly as possible. The check-ins will need to be in by 9pm EST/6pm PST on Tuesdays.

    If an individual fails to check in two consecutive times during the challenge, that person will be removed by admin. Teams will be disqualified if they miss checking in any two weeks, not necessarily consecutively. If you have members who have failed to check in with you, put a 0 next to their name and get the points posted.

    Exercise Points
    1 points per 10 minutes of exercise. This must be an actual form of purposeful exercise - walking, running, biking, swimming, weight training, cardio machines, etc. This does not include any chores or activities, only straight exercise. Our goal is to reward your for purposefully fitting exercise into your schedule. General activity, such as cleaning the house, gardening or swimming with your children, is 1 point per 20 minutes of activity. Please limit activity to cleaning, activity and chores that require a little muscle work and/or endurance. For example, I would not include washing dishes. Use your best judgement. There is a limit of 12 points per day for exercise activity.

    Water Points
    1 point per cup (8 oz/236 ml) of water. 10 points max...1/2 can be calorie free, caffeine free drinks ie. tea not sweetened, diet sierra mist etc.

    Support Points
    1 point for each day you check in with your team. This does not mean typing "checking in." This means that you say something about your day, or something to encourage or support your fellow teammate(s). This should include at least 2 personal messages to a fellow teammate each day.

    Food Points
    5 points for every day you eat within your plan. Whether you're following an actual plan (like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, SlimFast, etc.) or simply following basic healthy eating guidelines, you will earn for sticking to it. If you go slightly off plan you will get 3 points. If you totally blow your day 0 points.

    Breakfast point
    You can add a point each day for eating breakfast. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps with weight loss so this will be beneficial to everyone!

    Sleep Point
    Competitors will earn one point for each night that they sleep 7 hours or more. If you are feeding babies during the night, please count the amount of total sleep you get in any one night.

    Mini-challenges: Mini-challenges are again part of this challenge. Most mini-challenges will take place over the course of a week. A new thread will be posted for each individual mini-challenge with instructions. Most mini-challenges will be worth 10 points per individual. You will need to tally your own mini-challenge points each week. If every member of a team completes the mini challenge and posts on the relevant thread, the team will get a huge 10 EXTRA POINTS onto their team average at the end of the week!

    I am interested but it's so cold where I am that I am not sure where to exercise. I am getting a treadmill at some point from my grandma but not sure when I am getting it. Can I still participate?

    Yes Holly! Join in! You can count heavy duty housework for exercise, like say vacuuming the whole house could be a point. Or carrying your baby around while stair climbing. (I'd get creative.) With DS2 I didn't have much free time to exercise so I worked on drinking my water and watching my diet. I ended up losing 10lbs!
    Patricia, it starts in one or two weeks. When they post the sign up link I'll be sure to post it here.

    **ETA: Crap! I just re-read the rules and see that chores don't count for exercise now. Whoops! Oh well, looks like I'll have to do a lot of baby-stair-climbing myself.

    I have a Moby wrap. I'll dig that out and do some stair climbing. I am hoping it warms up a bit too so that I can start going for walks when DH gets home.

    Kim, I can't wait this start the challenge up. I've been stalking the BLC board waiting for the sign up to post. Our team name is The Healthy Honeys right? Then no matter who you are, it makes sense.

    Here is the sign up link ----> http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboa...spring-704455/ Just post that you will be on The Healthy Honeys team. There is also an option to do a personal weightloss challenge outside of the group. You weigh in once a week. You can do that too If you want. I'll get our point tracking list up in a bit. We can keep chatting here until everyone gets their point tracking page up, if that's alright. Sorry I didn't get this up sooner. What a time to get sick!
