I LOVE CHOCOLATE. This is not just a little crush. This is a full-fledged lifetime affair. But lately, chocolate and I have been seeing a little too much of each other. Now, now Chocolate, don't cry. I'm not swearing you off forever, I just need to take it back a step. (Let's just say that I don't think eating 6 large pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in a two hour span is indicative of self control and health.)
So, here it is, a new challenge. Since I have no self control, this challenge has to be kind of strict. I also have to involve other people, because the problem is self control, so if I am accountable to others maybe I can develop some self control (this kind of circular logic always works for me).
SO join me!
Here's how we'll do it, if you want to join.
1. Each day you don't eat a dessert you earn a point. (So if you want to go all healthy crazy, then you can vow off all desserts and then you'll earn more points than me because I'm giving myself one day to go crazy.) I'm not going to argue about what is a dessert and what isn't. That was a total downfall of my last challenge with Mike. If you don't think rice pudding is a dessert, then fine, eat it.
2. Each day you exercise you earn a point. 30 minutes of exercise. Doing whatever causes you to sweat. I know, I know running is harder than biking and so forth and so on, but I have to keep this simple.
This starts Monday, Nov. 10. Every Monday I'll post a point collection post, and you can post your points in the comments.
If you want to join, then leave me a comment with your "Chocolate Challenge" supersecret (it won't really be supersecret, just kind of secret) identity. I'll keep a point tally on my sidebar. (Thanks Kim for the idea) This challenge will end on Monday, Jan 5, 2009.
OH yeah, one more rule:
3. No whining. Last time I tried this I whined to Mike so much that he finally gave in and the bet just kind of fell apart. I ruined it and it made me sad. So no whining. Sorry, no points will be awarded for this, just peace and happiness.
