Name:28 Day Plan.
Theme:28 Day Plan: A Month Of Self-Improvement.


This community promotes 28 days of points towards a better lifestyle. Each day, you need to post in here with your points. It's sort of like an honor system. Members support each other during the journey to a healthier, happier life.

Point System

You can get up to a maximum of 10 points per day, 2 points for each of five categories. The categories are:

- Food
- Water
- Exercise
- Posting
- Daily Self Esteem Challenge

You must follow your diet / meal plan or stay within your calorie range everyday! If you do, you can give yourself 2 points. If you go over, but not by much, 1 point. If you have a bad day, give yourself 0 points. (Example: if you are fasting, if you drink water only you get 2 points, if you have liquids, i.e. juice, then you only get 1 point. If you happened to have a bite of anything solid you get zero points.)

If you have 64+ ounces, you get 2 points. 32-64 ounces, 1 point. Less than 32 ounces is 0 points. Any decaffeinated beverage with 0 calories counts as water, but you can only use stuff other than actual water (diet Sprite, Crystal Light, decaf tea) for 24 ounces of your daily total. Just think of how great your skin is going to look after ALL that water!

If you work out for more than 30 minutes, you get 2 points. 20-29 minutes is 1 point, and less than 20 points is 0 points. Once per week, you get a "Get out of exercise free" card to use.

This is all or nothing. You make the daily post, you receive 2 points. You post the next day with that day's stats, give yourself 0 points for that day. The key to this challenge is updating everyday so this one is the important one!

Self-Esteem Challenge
This is the fun part. every day of the week, there's a special daily challenge that you get to select. If you do it, you get 2 points. If not, you don't get any. Self-esteem points are the only points you can make up later.

- Monday: Celebrate Me! Give yourself a facial, take a bubble bath, get a few minutes to yourself, etc. Do something to make yourself feel good.

- Tuesday: Procrastinator's Anonymous: Everyone has something they're putting off--this is your chance to finally DO it.

- Wednesday: Random Act of Kindness Day. Commit a random act of kindness--give a compliment, be polite to a telemarketer, donate to charity--anything as long as it's nice!

- Thursday: Try It, You'll Like it! Do a new exercise, make a new recipe that looks good - expand your horizons!

- Friday: Fun Day! Blow bubbles, go to a movie, dance, be silly, have fun!

- Saturday: Cleaning out the Cobwebs: Clean something in your house that needs it.

- Sunday: This is a make-up day for all your other challenge days. If you missed a challenge, do it on Sunday. If not, just plan for the next week and take it easy.

Daily Posts

In your daily post, make sure you post your numbers. Your first number is the number of days you've been in the challenge, the second is the pounds you've lost and the third is the total number of points you've earned on the challenge so far. So if you've been on the plan for 7 days, you've lost 1.5 pounds and you have gotten 68 points, you'd just post 7/1.5/68. Also, tell us about your daily self esteem challenge.. let us know how you loved yourself today!

Food: 1/2
Water: 2/2
Exercise: 0/2
Post: 2/2
SEC: 2/2 - I went salsa dancing today!


If you eat a little extra food, you can exercise extra to make up for the food points. 30 minutes for every 150 calories. You have to decide if it's worth it.

Safety Clause

If you are having a horrible day, feeling ill, weak, or tired, STOP and take the day off! Eat normally and get yourself together. You automatically get 10 points for recoginizing your body's signals. If you feel bad for taking those points then remember Sunday is our make-up day! We want to keep this place safe.
