Exclamation 100% Cohens and Waterwise Challenge - Friday 2 August to Thursday 16 August 2013

HI all
I would like to put a challenge out there for all of us! Extra motivation is what I need as well as lasor focus.
Rules for this 100% Chohens challenge are:
  • We are going for 14 days deviation free
  • Mangoes are to be added at the end of each fortnight
  • Anyone can join at any time, but for new participants, more than 4 days after the beginning of the challenge and you will need to wait till the next one starts. Those who have been in the previous challenge can join after the 4 day period (unless, of course, they have deviated)
  • If you join after the start date, you still have to have been d-free since the official start of the challenge to be eligible
  • You can only use mangos in your signature if you are part of the mango challenge and have confirmed the d-free fortnight (Anyone who uses them without this will have their whole sig deleted)
  • If you earn five or more mangos, please only have one in your signature and the number, for example x 5
  • Deviate once and you’re out for the fortnight
  • Deviate again and you lose all your mangoes
Rules for Waterwise Challenge:
  • You have to tell me what the minimum amount of water you need to drink per day is.
  • Every day you need to post to state that you have consumed your min amount

You can sign up until Monday (5 Aug) for this challenge as long as you have been drinking your water and been D-Free since Friday 2 August.

At the end of the challenge, we can all proudly display the Waterwise and Dancing Mango Icon in our signature. Who is with me?

Oooh, I want to be in a fancy mango challenge.

Today is Friday the 2nd. I will be deviation free until maintenance of course but for this challenge, for the next two weeks.

I would like to drink 3L of water (4x 750ml), as I don't think that is too much for me to be drinking....will be hardest for me on the weekends!

Sign me up please!

Good on you for setting this up Blommie - a great challenge! I will cheer from the sidelines on this one as I am headed north for my daughter's music theatre debut (42nd Street!!) and have several meals booked that I am unsure of what will be on offer. I'll catch you on the next one

Go us Blommie! We might get some late starters in.

Yesterday I smashed my water goal - got at least 3.5L in, but that was because it was such a late night....wasn't home till midnight.

As it is the weekend, this will be the testing time for me.

Have a wicked day.

All good here yesterday. Am home sick today (no voice, still sore ears and throat) so I just need to remember to drink water while I am not sleeping!

Yes Blommie I am going to check in everyday nothing like a little extra accountability

Hit my 2.5L of water today find I drink heaps of water throughout the day then struggle when I get home from work so I only probably have about 500mls between 6pm and bedtime. Someone I knew that did Cohens said her consultant said it doesn't work unless you drink every 15 minutes (she used to set her alarm to go off every 15mins). I have never heard this have you guys?

Day 5 of the challenge done and dusted
