Day 1 in the books...

Yesterday was my first day using my new points system.  Any ideas for a name for it?  My creativity capped out coming up with it, apparently.

Yesterday, I earned 25 points out of possible 35ish.  It is possible to get more than 35 points in a day if I worked out mulitiple times or something, but 35 is kind of the best day scenario.  On a day I don't work out, I wouldn't expect to get more than 10-15.  So 25 is very solid for my first day.

This is NASCAR weekend in Texas and I will be at the speedway most of the weekend.  I won't technically work out Friday-Sunday, but we usually do a lot of walking.  While that won't give me points, it helps in the grand scheme of things.  I don't think I have ever maintained (much less lost) during a race weekend, but my goal this time is to maintain.  Whatever weight I am when I wake up tomorrow is the weight I want to be on Monday morning.  If I make that goal...I'm giving myself 5 bonus points.  If I lose...I'm giving myself 10 bonus points!  If I gain...I'm taking away 10 points.  Yikes!  I might have been a little hard on myself there, but accountability, right??  Let's do this!

MaDoo update:  I think I mentioned that she had to be intubated yesterday which totally stinks.  But I think maybe it was really helping her because she did recognize her daughter when she got there yesterday.  Good news!  I hope the good news keeps on coming, but things are still tough.  Thanks for all of your kind words and prayers!!

Hugs!

You'll be happy that you implemented this system before race weekend, I think it's going to make all the difference in the world!
Have fun.

Love the points system! I'm probably the least creative person you know, but I'll try and help think of some names.
